Laurie Coleman's partner is hoping they become gazillionaires with BLO & GO, the hair dryer holder.
A couple years ago Sen. Norm Coleman's model-actor wife told me she "working on a couple things."
Her business partner, L.A. entertainment and PR guy Anthony Turk, e-mailed me Wednesday to say: "You probably do not remember but I told you that Laurie Coleman was working on something about 3 years ago and we would tell you about it when the time was right. The time is right! Check out our official website at www.BLOandGO.com and you can see our TV spot and better understand the product."
The mother of this invention was inspired by a coat hanger and necessity. "It's cool, isn't it?" said Turk. "For years when she was modeling she'd get there and there'd be 20 girls per runway show and there are like two hair stylists. So she would get her own hair started by putting a coat hanger over the door and rigging up her blow dryer so she had two free hands. All the other models would start doing it too." After seeing her rig that hair dryer up while traveling with Norm, Turk said: " I looked at her and I said, 'Why don't you just come up with something?' She said will you help me? We became partners, got a patent attorney and we put our team [of investors] together and created the BLO and GO."
