I Just Dyed In Your Arms Tonight

Christina Hendricks RosesWhat, are there no fans of Cutting crew here?

This is Christina Hendricks, Fabulous Babe. (Fabulous Babe is capitalized because that is her official title around these parts.) Christina is a huge star, but when she was first cutting her teat, er, teeth, in the modeling business, she was on the receiving end of some very bad advice.

Namely, the dolts at her modeling agency thought Christina looked ugly with red hair. Brilliance like that should be bottled and sold at state fairs.

The Mad Men star – a natural blonde – changed her hair color when she was modeling early in her career, and despite initial criticism, she decided to keep her flame-colored look after beating off competition from a number of other models thanks to her new bright tresses.

Heh, heh, “beating off.” *snicker*

“When I first started modeling I was blonde. Then I got a job and they wanted to do my hair bright red. I’d always wanted to, but the head of my agency was like, ‘You look terrible, it’s so ugly, you cannot have red hair.’”

Twenty years later, the agency head is cleaning Christina’s car windows on Hollywood Boulevard with Windex and an old pair of underwear.

    Wyatt, pay attention because this important…

    The former agent that is cleaning cars with old underpants, are they Christina’s undies? If so, that might not be such a bad gig…

    just sayin’ is all.

    Howdy Wyatt! Dang it all, Dr. Evil beat me to it! Of course, that means we both may have (in his case, definitely have in my case) dirty minds and might go a long way to explaining why I enjoy his comments so much!!

    Wyatt:
    Goes to show that some folks know how to choose the WRONG line of work…expecially when it comes to modeling agencies.
    (and make every wrong decision that’s possible)
    I hope every morning they look in the mirror and say: “Face – meet palm”

    (and well said, Dr. E)
    ;)
    Always a pleasure to see Christina.
    Have a good weekend out there in Philly-Town.

    And be sure to roll safe.

    I’m sure Christina is still a “natural blonde”… The real question I have is how she married that guy? I’ve seen pictures of them together and have nothing but a ? Of course a few have said that about Mrs. S marrying cute lovable me? I guess love is blind, which can be a good thing. We all get old.

    It wasn’t the color, she doesn’t look as good with her hair down.

    If you notice (if you’ve ever gotten that far), she usually wears her hair up these days.
