You know how reality show competitors get eliminated from a show, and they promise that you’ll “see their face again” and then you never do?
Not the case with Madame Desiree Rogers.
After a bunch of reality show wannabes, “the Salahis,” crashed a White House state dinner under Rogers’ watch, she resigned from the White House–and many wondered whether she’d ever assume a visible position again.
Turns out she’s now a consultant for Johnson Publishing. It’s one of two big changes Johnson Publishing has made this month (the other being the appointment of Amy Dubois Barnett as the new editor-in-chief of Ebony magazine).
The Atlanta Post has the source:
(Chicago Sun Times) – Former White House social secretary and Illinois Lottery director Desiree Rogers is working as a consultant with Johnson Publishing Co., owner of Ebony and Jet magazines, to help with corporate strategy, a Johnson Publishing spokeswoman said today. The news comes just two days after Johnson Publishing Chief Executive Officer Linda Johnson Rice hired author and magazine turnaround expert Amy Dubois Barnett as the new editor-in-chief of Ebony magazine and declared that the company is not for sale.
