Kelsey Grammer may not boast the pop culture cachet he once did nor the social networking skills he nevertheless believes he has, but give him credit for one thing: The dude has dated a lot of young ladies. Grammer is at last receiving the recognition he deserves from Internet dating site SugarSugar, which connects “Sugar Daddies” with “Sugar Babies” who are “interested in the ‘sugar’ lifestyle,” something that apparently involves “gift giving, gift receiving, flirting, discretion” and also “bragging rights,” which, awwww. All told, it’s a solid business plan for mutually beneficial love transactions, and according to this press release that we received, all it needs now is the reflected glory of Kelsey Grammer:
“With his impressive relationship history, the recent news of the dissolution of his third marriage and the swift announcement of his engagement to 29-year old Kayte Walsh, Kelsey Grammer proves that he knows exactly what it takes to win the heart of a younger woman, and SugarSugar.com is seeking out his prowess.”
Indeed, the leonine Grammer knows exactly what it takes to snare the heart of a younger woman, and think of all the advice he could share with similarly interested older men simply by drawing from his own experiences, such as, “Be rich,” and, “Star in two famous TV shows,” and, “Failing that, just be extra rich.” In exchange for that sort of expertise, SugarSugar is offering Grammer $1 million to become the official “Sugar Daddy Spokesman,” which would entail his sharing monthly “Mentor” blog posts and participating in Q&As with fellow rich men willing to be exploited via a queasy Electra complex exchange for sexual favors from younger girls—like Steven B. and Marie P. here, whose star-crossed love based on Steven’s desire to “share the finer things in life” and Marie’s need of “help with tuition and bills” serves as inspiration to Sugar Babies and Daddies everywhere.
Even better, “In addition to the monetary compensation, SugarSugar.com will also provide Mr. Grammer with a lifetime membership,” which is an incredibly thoughtful engagement gift. Anyway, Grammer has yet to respond to the offer, but that hasn’t stopped our own Keith Phipps from drafting the following:
Steven Spielberg to call The A.V. Club world's greatest entertainment site?
(Chicago, IL: December 2010) Nobody has more respect in the entertainment world than Steven Spielberg. With that in mind, The A.V. Club would like it if he declared us the world's greatest entertainment site.
Of course, we don’t have $1 million to offer, but given that we’re the “Sugar Baby” in this scenario, we’re pretty sure flattery will get us somewhere.
