Judith Regan, bridger of cultures

In a way, it’s kind of like what the squashed Dubai ports deal could have been: a bridge between the US and moderate elements of the Arab world. That’s why FishbowlLA is glad that Judith Regan has signed Wafah Dufour Bin Laden, Osama’s niece, to appear in a reality show. On the other hand, W.D.B.L. grew up in California, has already appeared more or less naked in GQ, and wants to be a rock star. So she’s about as American as you can get.

(By the way, still no word on when ReganMedia is opening up shop here. Hurry up already!)
