KWSS's The Morning Infidelity ran a funny segment on Frankie Muniz's publicist/girlfriend, Elycia Marie, earlier this week.
Now, of course my own tangle with Elycia is well documented, but I'm not the only Phoenix media type who has run afoul of Ms. Marie. KWSS DJ Tatty Talia has her own tale of woe stemming from a blog comment in which she questioned how people would perceive Frankie's band, You Hang Up (which sent out a press release announcing Frankie had joined before ever practicing with him or hearing him play in person), in the local music scene were it not for his waning starpower.
Like others who dissed the former Malcolm in the Middle star on the interwebs, Talia found herself the target of anonymous comments calling her fat and digging into her personal life.
It's worth a try, right?
