Hey Megan Fox, watch out for “Golden Girl” Betty White
Last week, Asylum.com was among a number of men’s websites that announced Tuesday would be a day without 23-year-old starlet Megan Fox. And just who did the writers and editors at Asylum think they could rely on to replace Fox? Why, Betty White of the 1980s senior citizen TV series “Golden Girls.”
The website on Tuesday featured a photo of White flashing the “devil horns” sign, heavy metal style. And it said that in the spirit of its Megan Fox ban, it “decided to try something a little different and celebrate a woman whose multi-decade career is the stuff of Hollywood legend.”
“Emmy-award-winning actress and comedian Betty White, today we salute you!” the website said.
Along with its Betty White item, the website featured its usual male-oriented content, including a link to alluring pictures of “Mad Men” starlet Christina Hendricks and a post titled “Guys spend 45 minutes a day ogling women.”
Asylum also featured a link to a video of White making jokes at “Star Trek” star William Shatner’s expense during a celebrity roast. That will teach Megan Fox!
Elsewhere, Askmen.com posted a video with helpful hints on how to go a day without Fox. You can find that here.
Truly, as Fan Fare suggested last week, Fox has nothing to fear from the men’s websites that proclaimed a tongue-in-cheek ban on her. The “Transformers” star with self-described bisexual tastes has her own ideas about sexiness in women. Last year, she told magazine GQ that actress Olivia Wilde is “so sexy she makes me want to strangle a mountain ox.”
With quotes like that, Fox doesn’t need men’s websites to get attention.
