Skin care company Hydroderm is suing Teri Hatcher for breach of contract. The $2 million lawsuit alleges she promoted a lip plumper from rival company, CityLips, despite an agreement prohibiting her from doing so.
Hatcher appeared in promotional materials for CityLips, said she was a “fan” of the product, credited it with “helping her appear beautiful at an awards event,” and gave CityLips gift bags to guests at her birthday party.
“Hatcher’s name, image and likeness have been linked to so many competitors’ products (at least 17!) that it is anyone’s guess as to what product keeps her skin and lips youthful,” said the lawsuit.
In a statement, Hatcher attorney Alan Wertheimer called the suit an “unjustified and public assault on Teri Hatcher’s good name, reputation and celebrity in a transparent and pathetic effort to distract from its own failure to live up to its end of the agreement.”
Teri Hatcher uses beauty products? I thought she just rolled out of her coffin every morning to conduct her visual assault on the world. Hydroderm should be happy Teri isn’t promoting their stuff. I’d be more than concerned if people were looking to Teri for beauty advice. Between you and me, I don’t think she has any. The only advice people should be asking her for is how to suck the blood from goats without being shot by farmers.
