So of course Donkey’s claims that she was hired to be a spokesperson for a bra company turns out to be as flimsy as the bras she’s peddling. As you commenters have uncovered, her story of contacting Coobie because she loved them so much and just had to spread the word and that they hired her to be a spokesperson is a flat out lie. She just responded to their call from bloggers to be a brand ambassador in exchange for some free bras. The photo shoot that she did for all the girls was not paid for by the company. Donkey took it on her own to stage a vanity photo shoot where she bravely overcame her body insecurities that she has despite constantly posting near-naked pictures of herself in Burner gear.
A company rep confirmed that Donks is not a paid spokesperson for the company. She’s just part of their blogger program, even though she doesn’t blog anymore. I’m not sure of the timeline, but it appears that Donks waited until she got her free bras until she even bothered to mention the company.

Walking my pup at 6 am … This place doesn’t feel real.

I contacted the family-run North Carolina company and told them I loved their products and I wanted to tell the world about them. A few weeks later, they hired me as their newest spokeswoman.
I don’t have time to unravel this pack of lies in detail, but y’all have proven yourselves capable to do so on your own.
UPDATE: And you have! According to Lurker, Donk’s actually tried to bill the company for her vanity photoshoot/ultimate act in feminist bravery.
They were not impressed. They were super confused about the “spokesperson” title. That is why I got put on hold. The lady was like, spokesperson? Uh, no . . . this woman called us recently about sending an invoice for the fauxtoshoot and we didn’t know what she was talking about.
UPDATE 2: Looks like Donks is gonna keep on keeping on, until she finds a graceful way to say fuck it.
The Coobie Store 30 Day Challenge – Day 2
I woke up, checked my email, got some news I didn’t really like, and my enthusiasm for exercise immediately waned. Why IS this? I got enough sleep. I ate really healthy yesterday. I had my vitamins. I just feel depressed, like “what’s the point of it all?” like Sisyphus rolling that boulder up a mountain, except without the awesome glutes he must have gotten from the workout.
Setbacks don’t really spur me to want to do anything but eat a big pile of medjool dates. Laugh all you want, dates are my cocaine. The ones you eat, friends, not the ones you get dressed up for … Luckily, I’ve kicked my addiction to the latter.
THAT SAID, I made a deal, so I’m going anyway. To a run!
