Karen Owen — Duke University Fuck List Author — Offered Book Deal!
The future is looking bright for Karen Owen. The Duke University alum who chronicled four years of hookups and hoe shit in the form of a PowerPoint presentation that’s spreading across the web faster than herpes at a Hollywood orgy is just a six-figure deal away from becoming a New York Times bestselling author.
The Duke University Fuck List, an in-depth ranking of the best and worst of Karen’s vodka-stained sexual conquests (And boy are there a lot of ‘em!), could turn the out of work former coed into the next Karrine “Superhead” Steffans.” (Google Her…) That’s right — publishing giants are so interested in Karen’s story of homie humping from one Duke lacrosse player to another that they’re ready to offer the beauty a book deal for more deets on Who’s Who’s at one of America’s most prestigious institutions, according to her catbag, of course.
Suppose we shouldn’t be surprised….after all, these are the same people who gave Snooki a book deal. But it kinda gives a new meaning to the phrase “The Vagina Monologues,” doesn’t it?
Former Disney Kid Kiely Williams provides the perfect soundtrack for Karen’s saga. We knew the slut anthem that is “Spectacular” would come in handy someday…for something.
Word on the Curb has it that sites like Jezebel.com and Deadspin.com — among the only media outlets privileged enough to speak with Owen — are being swamped with correspondence from respected publishers interested in transforming Karen into the poor man’s Carrie Bradshaw — or at least Tucker Max.
Take a look at what one excited HarperCollins editor wrote in an email to Jezebel:
“I’m an editor at HarperCollins publishers, where I specialize in pop culture and entertainment books. I’m intrigued and entertained by [the writer]‘s PowerPoint “f*ck list,” which is making the rounds online and am wondering if you could give me her email address or forward my note of interest to her. Even though I’m sure she’s horrified that her, uh, presentation, which was intended for a small group of friends, has gone viral, she’s a very good, funny writer, and I’m wondering if she has any interest in writing a book. She’s like the female equivalent of Tucker Max, and I admire his sense of self-empowerment!”
Who says you shouldn’t kiss and tell?
