So did Kelly Ripa give sex or love tip to the readers of Redbook?July 25, 2007
To love your life, you have to be honest with your life first. Stacy Morrison, Editor-in-Chief of Redbook magazine, did a great job reinventing the magazine last month, but failed to get rid of the hypocrisy (oh, sorry it is a marketing ploy) that she inherited regarding exchanging the words “love” and “sex” when used on the cover of the magazine for subscribers and single copy editions. The August issue goes even one step further by attributing a tip to their cover star Kelly Ripa in which the subscribers receive “the love tip she just has to share” and the single copy buyers receive “the sex tip she just has to share.” Ms. Morrison, I know you are in charge, so please stop the hypocrisy and give your readers some credit. If you think they are not going to buy the magazine because you do not use the word sex on the cover instead of love, trust me you do not want those readers. Love your life is your new tag line and not Sex your life. Or, is it Sex your life?
On a separate note, did you know that Redbook is also selling in some parts of the country at the low price of $1.99? (See related story below) Here is my copy bought at Books-a-Million.
