WOW. Wouldn’t sitting next to this hottie in Torts class be just a wee bit distracting?
We rarely hear from people about whom we’ve written. This is generally a good thing.
But every now and then, one of them drops us a line. And sometimes they’re none too pleased. Like Oona O’Connell, the superhottie lawyer who posed for Playboy, as discussed back in this post.
You can read Ms. O’Connell’s email, which we reprint with her permission, after the jump.
So here’s what Oona O’Connell wrote to us:
It must be very fulfilling to run a website that is based on malicious gossips pretending that they know things about subjects they have no familiarity with whatsoever. If you don’t have anything nice to say, why say anything at all?
It’s not my fault that I am enjoying my life, pursuing my dreams, and doing what fulfills me and makes me happy, instead of stupidly conforming with everybody else’s idea of what is ‘normal’, and this makes other people uncomfortable. I think unconventionality is wonderful. And law school was the most close-minded place I have ever been.
I would be a terrible lawyer because I have no passion for the law and do NOT like the legal profession, not because I posed for Playboy. And btw, Oona O’Connell is my given name. It was the name my parents chose for me and I found it very hurtful to hear it described by your ignorant ‘tipster’ as coming from a ‘porn-name generator’.
Your blog purports to be about the ‘profession’s most colorful personalities’. I guess I am colorful, by legal standards anyway, but you don’t have to be so mean and judgmental about it.
But this story has a happy ending, in which we end up as friends. We’ll bring you the balance of our epistolary exchange in subsequent posts.
