OK, I’ll admit it, curiosity got the better of me. Surely, the more TV-addicted of you remember the narcissistic joke that was/is Bobby Trendy, right? He was the flamboyantly, err, alternative-lifestyled “designer” on the glorious trainwreck that was the Anna Nicole Smith Show. Not only was his design sense ridiculously expensive, it was also somehow ridiculously cheap in that (if I recall correctly) he was putting Anna’s incredibly pink headboard together with a glue gun.
Not that there’s anything wrong with a glue gun.
I’m just not going to charge you x-thousand dollars for something I made with it. I digress. Let me dial down the vitriol. To Bobby’s credit, though nothing he created was at all to my tastes, it certainly seemed to be to Anna’s… and that’s really what a good design is all about (speaking to the consumer).
Oh, and he was a self-absorbed prick.
Anyway, the Anna Nicole show was on something like 5 years ago; and, in all that time I have been getting a somewhat steady stream of visitors looking for info about Bobby Trendy. I chalked it up to coincidence until today, when I found that this week I got 6 people coming here looking for Trendy.
In one week!
Sure, this ain’t a lot of people in the grand scheme of things, but it seems like roughly half a dozen more than should be looking for him.
SO, I did a search of my own to see what the fuss was about, and you know what? Nothing. A few blurbs about how he was on Anna Nicole and that he has a store in WeHo. So I ask you, dear readers: WHAT THE HELL?
