Billionaire heiress Tamara Eccleston makes headlines in many ways.
Pictured below she is seen with one of her five dogs, who get groomed at Harrods Pet Spa in London, and the largest-ever produced dog biscuit. The photo is ©Gareth Davies and obtained from the isthiscow flickr site.
She does have a soft-spot for animals and has been recognized by PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) for her efforts on this front. The PETA ad below was a cute marketing idea, utilizing the word “formula” in the copy and the checkered flag, which are obvious tie-ins to Tamara’s billionaire father, Bernie, CEO of Formula One Management.
She has also assisted in fundraising for the Great Ormond Street Hospital, as well as other activities, to benefit sick children.
However, in what was a well-orchestrated publicity stunt for her upcoming reality TV series, Billion $$$ Girl (launching November 4), she teamed up with Hollywood photographer Tyler Shields and the sum of £1 million (approximately $1.5 million) and, literally, rolled in the hay with her cash (wearing evidently only her high heels). The image below is, obviously, not one of those shots, but was still taken by Shields during the same session.
Could there be a better way to promote the Billion $$$ Girl TV show than to flaunt the fact that the money does, indeed, exist and this very small percentage (1/1000th) of it was with her in bed? Probably not. Was it in good taste? That would be up to the viewer. Perhaps it would have been better timed if the world economic climate was different.
In the meantime, one thing is quite sure, Tamara enjoys her money.
Over For Now.
