Correction. Brigid did say so once. Sort of. In the summer of 2001, she wrote to the alumni magazine at Harvard College:
"As the Harvard Law Bulletin reported in its spring issue, the story of a fashionable blonde turned law student, which I co-wrote in law school with my childhood friend Amanda Brown, is now a movie. Though we did not set the original story at Harvard, its venue has been shifted there for Legally Blonde. Look and you might see yourselves!"
Thomas' father, Mike, a lobbyist in Washington, D.C., won't give out Brigid's number, saying, "I don't think she can give you much. She's got non-disclosure agreements," but does comment that the Wall Street Journal has called about the same subject.
Kerrigan pointedly says there's only one Brown he loves, his old friend Jack.
Amanda has nothing to say about any of it -- although she insists she wishes she could. "I can't talk about it, unfortunately," she says. "It's not a significant person or a part of my life," she says of Brigid and the time they obviously worked together.
"Suffice to say, it's my book, my idea, my baby."
And it's certainly Amanda Brown's party.
