It's genius, really. Better than Paris could have pulled. But we're so onto it.
Leave it up to digital-age dinosaur Dad to give it all away on his Facebook page. The Silicon Valley Mercury News revealed yesterday that John Wallace had been all but pushing for his daughter's rise to infamy:
"My daughter wants to start a blog," wrote Wallace's dad on his Facebook page.
John Wallace, a Sacramento-area retail developer, posted on Friday at 11:17 a.m.: "She's asking for domain suggestions for 'Asians on their cellphones in the library!' She's shooting videos as I write."
John Wallace also posted March 3 that his daughter was selected for the audience of MTV's "Jersey Shore" reunion show.
Thus outing his daughter as a blatant fame-monger, and proving that parents on Facebook is always a bad idea.
As for you, Alexandra Wallace: We'd recommend you sign some deals, stat (girl-on-girl with Rebecca Black? Please?)
