Jodie Fisher – Mark Hurd Used Cougar Actress to Market HP Computers

Posted: August 9th, 2010 in Jodie Fisher by LALATE

Jodie Fisher - Age of Love to Mark Hurd Scandal

LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Mark Hurd used Jodie Fisher (pictures), a reality tv star actress and admitted cougar to market his HP (NYSE: HPQ) computers. Jodie (not Jody nor Jodi) Fisher has dominated HP scandal news since Friday when Hurd announced he would resign, 24 hours after he reached a non monetary settlement.

But yet there is something very wrong with this scandal. HP found Hurd didn’t harass Fisher.

HP said Friday in its statement that it found Hurd did not engaged in harassment of Fisher, an independent contractor hired in 2007 to 2009 by Hurd to serve as a marketing rep for HP computers. So why did Hurd resign? . “The investigation  determined there was no violation of HP’s sexual harassment policy, but did find violations of HP’s Standards of Business Conduct.” But what violations? HP is not explaining.

Fisher said she didn’t have a relationship nor affair with Hurd. But what she did have was a job marketing computers, the same year in which she was playing the role as a cougar on a reality dating tv show. How did she go from Cougar to computers?

In 2007, Fisher was hired by NBC to play the part of a cougar trying to win the love of Mark Philippoussis. She didn’t win love, but did win an HP job. When hired by NBC, Fisher, a resident of Santa Monica, listed her job as VP of a commercial real estate company. Suddenly, once the show was over, the same year Fisher was hired by Hurd not to handle real estate issues at HP but to market computers.

Where Hurd found Fisher for her job remains unclear. But Fisher asserted harassment claims against Hurd, only to say Friday she wishes his family and Hp “the best”.

The best?

Hurd does walk away with $12 million in severance and a believed one year take, after stocks, of $40 to $50 million. HP walks away with an image that its former CEO hired a cougar reality star to promote computer sales.
