"We Need A Bigger Well Of Fug To Pull From"

J: I think we appreciate the pun in it, but had we known we were going to have to tell our mom and dad about it, maybe we would have thought about calling it something else?

H: I wouldn't have. I think it's a really funny name. I have no regrets on the name.

J: No, I don't, either.

H: It's hard for me to say how much of the fact that the blog has done well has to do with the fact that it has a catchy name. If it had been BloggingAboutCelebrityFashion.com, people would've been like, "Yawn!"

WC: I think the name gets people in the door, but it's the writing that keeps them there.

J: Well, thank you.

WC: Well, it's true.

H: We didn't even name it that to get people in the door. You know we love a hacky pun.

WC: Yeah! And it's given you so many possibilities for headlines. I always want to see how you're going to work it in. Especially where it's people where (a) you cover them a lot, or (b) someone who hasn't done that much.

H: There are only so many things you can do with Paris Hilton. She's the one that kills me. "Fuggis," "Fugbucket," I don't know. You just beat your head against the desk. I've never wished she would do more movies -- ever -- except for that.

J: Even if they never come out. Straight to video. When Lindsay [Lohan] was in I Know Who Killed Me, it was great, 'cause I could say, "I Fug Who Killed Me," "I Know Who Fugged Me," "I Know Who Killed Fug."

H: "Fug Knows Who Killed Me."

J: Thank you, Lindsay!

H: She's working out for us.

J: Bless her heart.

WC: So the book is out -- what else is the future of the brand? That you can talk about, at least.

H: Let's see. Well, we're hoping to keep writing as a team -- you know, maybe doing some fiction.

WC: Ohhhhh!

J: We haven't figured anything out yet. It's all just theoretical.

H: We just shot a TV show in Ottawa, which is going to air only in the UK and Canada, on Canadian E! and one of the UK channels. It's us on a panel. The show's kind of like video paper dolls.

WC: Fun!

H: You take a picture of someone who's dressed badly, and you talk about it, and then we'll say, "I'd like to see her in something green, with a better hemline," and you push a button and the dress is on the body. You can kind of re-dress the celebrities who screwed up the first time.
