Bingle... I don't feel so sorry for you anymore

Bingle... I don't feel so sorry for you anymore

I have unavoidably heard information relating to Lara Bingle’s nude photo and the update according to various media includes her selling her story for up to $200,000 and that quite possibly given that this was a 4 year old photograph, that she actually leaked it herself with her new management.

If either item is true, I apologise for writing an article that supports Lara Bingle, because if she was truly ashamed or embarrassed by the photograph she would not be promoting it in a major editorial for money. She would handle situation with some dignity and grace without selling her sole and her nudity as a way in which to get money. If she was truly hurt by what happened 4 years ago and ashamed, then she would not want to milk it for all it’s worth. I am all for her getting compensation, but that is from the person who did this to her, not from selling her story to the highest bidder.

Secondly, if her management leaked this after 4 years, then I too have been fooled. This is not clever marketing or branding, but in fact, a complete disgrace. You are not only tarnishing the Lara Bingle brand but also tarnishing the brand of a footballer who by all accounts seems to have changed in the past 6 months.
