Sticky Wicket for Silverman

January 27, 2009 11:40 AM

NBC's Ben Silverman learned the hard way that women don't want used lipstick as a gift.

He's been besieged by female fans of "Lipstick Jungle" sending him lipsticks to entice him to bring the show back. During an interview at NATPE, he said he looked for a charity to donate lipsticks to, but most charities don't need lipstick. So he gave some of them to a woman he was dating. But—oops—turned out some of the lipsticks sent to him were used, and women don't really like used lipstick as a gift, he said.
