    Hilary Duff: I Need A Man. Low-Income Types Need Not Apply

    By kyle | July 29, 2007

    In a candid, “like”-filled interview, the unattached Hilary Duff confesses that “I do manipulate men when I feel like it” and says that among the most important qualities she seeks in a fella–actually, the most important quality–is that he be “in the business” so he can understand what she is going through, or at least what she’ll be going through for the next six to eight years until she is back to working the state fair circuit. But he must also have outside interests. Also, he has to be rich: “I don’t need someone who, like, has as much as me but you don’t want someone who has much less because then you wouldn’t feel taken care of.” OK, guys. So look at what else she wants from you. Apparently she has a checklist going. I’m confident that with these insights she is going to find exactly the right guy for her.

      She’s a rich and famous movie star with a whole entourage of personal assistants. How much more “taken care of” does she need to feel?

      Reminds me of the Eddie Izzard joke where he talks about the futility of the song “God Save The Queen”. He describes, in great detail, all of the security at Buckingham Palace and concludes, “that’s one saved @#$%ing Queen!”
