Olivia Munn Says Suck It, Wonder Woman

Posted by Tom Mason Categories: Editorials, Television,

Olivia MunnGeek goddess and fanboy icon Olivia Munn is the host of G4’s Attack of the Show (for now it seems) and pops up now and again on Jon Stewart’s The Daily Show as their Senior Espionage Correspondent (among others).

Now she’s letting her geek flag fly ever more proudly with her new book, a memoir entitled and on sale now: “Suck It, Wonder Woman.”

With Wonder Woman now in the news with a new costume and a new direction, the timing could not be better for a book with that title. Also, too, is right around the corner so comics will once again be in the nightly news cycle (if only so TV networks can run pictures of guys dressed like Stormtroopers and Klingons).

And, she’ll probably be there as well on behalf of G4. (I wonder if she has trouble booking a room?) And she’ll probably interviewing those same cosplayers. But at least she’ll have the sense of where they’re coming from, unlike, say, the manscaped fratboys who cosplay as journalists on TV.

Naturally, since she’s a celebrity, she didn’t actually write her book without help. Her ghostwriter spoke to GQ about their working relationship, and he has lots of nice things to say about her. “Her hair was silkier than any I’d ever touched and there were strong citrus notes that left a crisp, clean feeling inside my nostrils.” Sounds like someone didn’t get his paragraphs indented like he wanted.

Meanwhile, the guys at Newsarama have some concerns for Olivia and her future with Attack of the Show. Read the comments for additional thoughts.

And yes, this was just a post created to run a picture of Olivia.
