Former Oklahoman turned actress/model/ geek icon Olivia Munn wont return our Twitter DMs. We assume shes too busy being a Daily Show correspondent and all, so throughout 2011, Chicken-Fried News will attempt to keep tabs with her semi-tabloid life.
First of all, the NBC sitcom Perfect Couples, which gives Munn her first starring role in a prime-time series, premieres Thursday. The producers rave, its not a beer commercial.
Munn stopped by Late Show with David Letterman last week to plug the program, where, sitting backstage, she Twittered photos of her cleavaged self eating cookies. Mmm, cookies er, we mean, mmm, cleavage And finally, speaking of pics n parts, her February cover of Maxim magazine is causing controversy. In what we hope will become known as mound of Venisgate, FOX411 reports that Dan Gainor, vice president of business and culture at the Media Research Center, doesnt like the fact that Munn is pictured wearing see-through panties (hes more of a Mens Health reader, we guess?) that reveal, as one online gossip site put it, an entirely airbrushed pubic region that might as well be Barbies crotch.
Its disgusting, Gainor was quoted as saying. Maxim has moved their magazine from tawdry to full-on pornography.
He neednt worry, as America now gets its pornography from the Internet, not print.
