Biglaw Loves a Star

It’s got to be awfully dreary working in the coal mines of Weil Gotshal & Manges.  Why else would they turn to such a bigtime, important, major television personality to spruce up their event.  According to Above The Law, this white shoe powerhouse of a law firm is bringing in none other than the beautiful, fabulous, brilliant Star Jones to their January 22nd “Diversity Reception” so that their lawyers can bask in her reflected glory.

And you thought you were missing something by not being a tier 1 student and Biglaw prospect (other than a few hundred thou in salary)?  It doesn’t get much goofier than this, kids.

But here’s the real question.  Will there be another memo coming out requesting that all attendees only speak in one syllable words and make no mention of “gastric bypass” or her makeup choices?  After all, it would be rude to make their high-profile guest feel unwelcome.
