Nigel Barker Not Afraid of Shameless Self-promotion

By

When he's not busy saving helpless baby seals from hunters in Northern Canada, Nigel Barker is busy trying to make himself more famous. If only the rest of the world supported his No. 2 cause. His publicist sent an e-mail to scenesters in L.A. that read, "Nigel Barker will be in Los Angeles from May 10th to June 4th. If there are any exciting events going on that you'd like him to attend, please let us know." To convince them, the rep added that Barker's blog received over "13 million (!!!) hits this week." Because everyone knows that the coolest person at the party is the one with the most blog hits. [NYP]
