Jennifer Love Hewitt’s Choice of Reading Material Is Frightening to Men

jennifer love hewittPoor Jennifer Love Hewitt. Despite being lovely and famous and rich, the actress seems to be endlessly mocked and targeted for all of her failed relationships. (Before Perez Hilton was "nice," I believe he referred to her as "Jennifer Love Desperate.") The girl does have a lot of exes, though. Carson Daly, John Mayer, Ross McCall, Jamie Kennedy, Bachelorette runner-up Ben Flajnik, some actor named Jarod Einsohn. A lot of dudes.

None of these relationships ever seem to last, though (hence, the laundry list of exes). What's the former Party of Five star doing wrong? I know! Walking around with Sherry Argov's self-help book, Why Men Love Bitches: From Doormat to Dreamgirl -- A Woman's Guide to Holding Her Own in a Relationship, in broad daylight.


Look, I'm all for self-help books. I've read a few in my day while going through tough times. Hell, some have even helped. But, dude. You hide that crap when people come over, and you don't walk around town toting it like a g.d. Birkin bag.

I'm pro-woman. I want to see the ladies empowered, in charge, whatever. And if a random book is going to help that cause, great. I don't think they should be ashamed. But common sense says that if you're having trouble in the relationship department, you don't walk around with a book that says you're having trouble in the relationship department. It's like walking into a job interview with a book entitled, Why You Can't Get a Job. You're advertising your issues and your baggage. That crap comes later on in relationships. Best foot forward first, remember?

On the other hand, I am a bit skeptical of JLH's choice of reading material. The placement of the book -- and the fact that she's walking around with it in plain sight when she has a perfectly usable tote bag -- make me raise my need-to-be-waxed brows a bit. Perhaps she's helping a friend get some publicity. The way she's clutching it seems a little too advertise-y. And if that's the case, well, she's a nice person for lending her celebrity to someone in "need." But I still think carrying around that book is bad idea jeans.

What do you think about JLH carrying around this book?
