Stepford Wives ad shows morphed nude Rice

A new ad for the upcoming remake of The Stepford Wives, due later this month, goes over the line.

The ad shows National Security Director Condoleezza Rice nude from the waist up, covering her breasts with her arms, and Hillary Clinton as a "Stepford" housewife baking cookies.

The pictures move across the screen very quickly, but they caught the eye of a Kansas City woman, who recorded the spot to make sure of what she was seeing.

Becky Reynolds said when she taped and watched the ad again, she "realized it was even worse" than what she'd suspected.

"It's just inappropriate, and it needs to be stopped," Reynolds said.

Reynolds says the less-than-perfect images in the advertisement for the new film will keep her out of the theater. Hillary Clinton and Condoleezza Rice in 'Stepford Wives' ad Pat Gray, who works with Northstar Marketing Group, said the ad shows bad taste toward Rice and Clinton.

The motion picture's production company, Paramount, says they haven't received any complaints...yet.

Don't sweat the small ones (pun intended).

Though the folks who produced this piece of dreck should be checked for active brain waves. I can't help but wonder if it isn't just a case of "tit for tat" in so far as a female icon from both sides of the political spectrum was shown. (and yes the pun was intended *grin*...I couldn't resist)

Funny thing is, Hillary did actually make a point of baking cookies in 1992, after she got in trouble for claiming not to be the kind of wife who does that sort of think "like Tammy Wynette standing by my man."

But please -- it's bad enough showing Hillary's face, but cleavage!? Are they trying to turn red-blooded American men gay, or what?
