Local Lewisville, TX Woman Is Pissed At MTV
A BELEAGUERED receptionist for Horizon Health Sales & Development company in Lewisville, Texas, sent a scathing e-mail to MTV last week after receiving hundreds of calls from Sarah Silverman fans. In response to MTV’s billboards advertising the June 3 MTV Movie Awards - which feature Silverman on a poster with her phone number printed in huge numerals - the employee told MTV, “I have been answering calls for this number for four days . . . many callers have stayed on long enough to express their anger that I am not Sarah Silverman.” MTV insists it isn’t to blame. “The numbers on the billboards are actually 1-877 (not 1-800),” its rep told us. “So please, to help maintain the sanity of the employees at Horizon Health, call 1-877-SARAH07.” When callers reach the right number, they get a recorded message from Silverman and her dog, telling callers they are going to die . . . but not before the MTV Awards.
