Which female media darling’s handlers had to scramble to keep her from being embarrassed by a half-empty room?
The recent event was announced at one venue, but organizers started panicking when they failed to sell out even half the seats.
Their choices were to try to block off half the venue, offer the seats for free, or move to a smaller venue. If they had done the first or second, the press would have had a field day mocking their client’s popularity.
So, they quickly scrambled to move the event to a different venue with a seating capacity that was less than half of the original!
Perhaps having millions of online followers doesn’t necessarily mean that people are actually willing to pay to see her?
BONUS CLUE: She is on TV, but she is not an actress.
