Below is a press release I just received that manages to combine Britney Spears and genocide in a tidy self-help PR package. Hanala Stadner, the daughter of holocaust survivors and “survivor of her own addictions,” offers her very own candid take on Britney Spears:
L.A. CELEBRITY ADDICTION EXPERT
COMMENTS ON BRITNEY CUSTODY RULING
AND ROOT CAUSES OF BAD-GIRL BEHAVIOR
Hanala Stadner, best-selling self-help author, network media commentator and long-time host of her own L.A. talkshow, offers her own very candid take on yesterday’s Britney Spears custody ruling and the string of celebrity indulgences and bad behavior infecting Hollywood–and fascinating the public . . .
Is Britney really to blame–or is it a lack of parental support and a celebrity-addicted public?
The survivor of her own addictions (alcoholism, eating disorder and drugs–all under the glare of the media spotlight) and the daughter of Holocaust survivors, Hanala blended her own recovery experiences with humor to help others.
She is the author of “My Parents Went Through the Holocaust and All I Got Was This Lousy T-shirt”, and a regular guest on the CBS Early Show, Dateline, Extra and others. She was also the host of the local L.A. talk show “The Suzan Stadner Show” for many years.
Classy. So very, very classy.
