Times are tough all over. Maybe even for the 1%!
There was a story not too long about Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star Adrienne Maloof and her husband, Dr. Paul Nassif being a little bent for a buck. In other words - they were broke.
While the couple vehemently denied the claim, shortly after it was discovered that Dr. Nassif was offering his plastic surgeon services at a discounted price. Members of Gilt City, a location-based coupon/deal service much like Living Social or Groupon, noticed that Paul was offering coupons to his office for special procedures, a decision we were sure was prompted by a need to bring money in during a hard time.
But when Paul was approached on the subject, he insisted that the offers were just a means to bring in new customers and aid the loyal ones who are actually falling on hard times. He explained:
“…I know people everywhere [are cutting back] so we’ve come up with a way to make the most luxurious treatments available to as many people as possible at these affordable prices,” Dr. Nassif explains, adding that one new treatment, Zerona, will “revolutionize the way people are able to shape and tone their bodies.”
Wow. That's nice of him, trying to think of his customers. And smart too, because we don't believe him for a second when he says he hasn't fallen on hard times. There's no shame in what he's doing, but let's call it what it is: an attempt to keep the circulation of funds flowing as usual!
