You would think that a magazine such as Glamour would want to hire an editor who personifies glamour but if the stories are true, nothing could be further from the truth. Glamour magazine is said to be in talks with Lena Dunham, the woman who sexually abused her younger sister by her own account and who lied about being sexually assaulted in college and allowed an innocent man to be accused of rape. The entire story fell apart and it now appears that it was all a lie.
Everybody who thinks Lena Dunham is glamorous, raise your hand. Everybody who thinks Lena Dunham knows anything about glamour, raise your hand. Either no one thinks Dunham is glamorous or even knows what glamour is or everyone here has had both arms amputated. What’s next? Charley Manson editing the Christian Science Monitor? Bernie Madoff editing Money magazine? Bernie Sanders editing Cosmopolitan?
Glamour is searching for a replacement for Cindi Leive, who departed her position as editor in chief last month after 16 years.
Leive left her post the same week as three other big names in the world of magazine publishing stepped down – Graydon Carter of Vanity Fair; Roberta Myers of Elle; and Nancy Gibbs of Time.
‘I’m leaving the brand in great shape,’ Leive told The New York Times last month.
Leive is credited with leading the magazine into the digital age.
Glamour.com draws 11 million monthly unique visitors. The magazine also has 15 million followers across various social media platforms.
Dunham has been outspoken on political issues and has appeared at a number of Glamour events in recent years. She has also written for Glamour’s sister publication The New Yorker.
In 2015, she launched a bi-weekly newsletter called Lenny Letter, a venture that is being funded by Conde Nast rival Hearst Magazines.
Dunham’s HBO show, GIRLS, is no longer on the air and let’s face it, except for lying, she has no marketable skills. My favorite Dunham story was how she cried her eyes out after Hillary’s loss in the presidential election. I would have like to see if she cried more than Megyn Kelly and Rachel Maddow. But all three could be surpassed by anyone Dunham picks out an outfit for, for the cover of Glamour. Now that person would have a real reason to cry.
More From The Mail Online
This past January, Dunham and her Girls co-stars Allison Williams, Zosia Mamet, and Jemima Kirke posed for the cover of Glamour.
Dunham praised the magazine for using an unretouched photo of the women.
‘Well, today this body is on the cover of a magazine that millions of women will read, without photoshop, my thigh on full imperfect display,’ she wrote on Instagram, along with a photo of herself from inside the magazine.
‘When my career started, some people celebrated my look but always through the lens of “isn’t she brave? Isn’t it such a bold move to show THAT body on TV?”‘
Amen to that sister.
