Athlete-Wedding Registry Follow Up
, I told you about Hot Clicks reader Todd Lewandowski
, who sent Tony Romo
$8 wash cloths as a wedding gift after seeing his registry linked in this column. If you remember, Lewandowski also sent Carmelo Anthony
and LaLa Vazquez
a $13 butter dish for their wedding, but had not received a thank you note. I reached out to the Knicks in hopes of getting 'Melo to send Todd a Tweet or a video greeting. The Knicks were helpful and directed me to Carmelo's personal PR person. When I pitched the idea to her, this was the exact response I got back: "Thank you but not available." I don't blame Anthony because I'm sure the idea never even got to him, but thanks to his PR people, he will now be known for having bad manners. And it continues below.

a couple of years ago. I bought them a candle that they registered for. I little while later I got a thank you card from Carmella that had "Jeff" scrawled on it as well. I, too, saw Carmelo Anthony and LaLa Vaquez
's registry and bought them something as well. No card from them."
