Adulterous Rogers customers call public press conference, ask for privacy
Gabrielle Nagy, the woman who garnered publicity (and mockery) by suing Rogers for the breakup of her marriage, was on her 14th minute of fame when she came roaring back into public view yesterday—and this time, she brought some cheating friends with her.
Reports the Star:
Wearing a wig, dark sunglasses and all-black clothing—and flanked by publicist J.P. Pampena—Nagy claimed 12 other people have come forward with similar stories since her story was first published. Four of them have signed affidavits in support of her lawsuit, she said, and “some are almost carbon copies of my case,” she said.
Nagy claims her husband discovered she was having an affair after the company included her previously private cellphone charges on a “global” invoice that included all of the household’s services, exposing the phone calls she was making to her extramarital lover.
Nothing says “I have a credible case” like a stack of sworn affidavits from confessed adulterers. But Nagy isn’t stopping there. Her campaign now has a name—Citizens Helping Individuals Reform Privacy Policies, or CHIRPP—and a Facebook page that’s skyrocketed from 13 to 155 members since yesterday afternoon. And as long as we’re counting, CHIRPP has already inspired a parody Facebook group, Rogers Wireless Clogged My Toilet, which had a paltry five members as of Thursday at 1 p.m.
While this will no doubt continue to be amusing when it comes before a judge, perhaps Nagy would have been better off to accept that her moment was up and just wait for the trial.
