Ridiculously Photogenic Convict Meagan Simmons Opens Up About Internet Fame
Thanks to a mugshot from three years ago, Meagan Simmons became an internet star late last week.
A Reddit user noticed that Simmons, then named Meagan McCullough, looked unusually good in the booking photo that was taken after her arrest for reckless driving in 2010. So they made it into an advice animal meme, with the caption “Wanted…in 50 states.”
Other variations, such as “Can I get your cell…number,” followed and suddenly the 27-year-old mother of four was known all over the world wide Web.
“I knew [the picture] was out there, but didn’t know it was big until a journalist called me on Friday,” she told The Huffington Post.
“I don’t think it’s that good a picture,” Simmons added, disagreeing with the general consensus on the mug shot. “There are other ones I would prefer.”
Simmons explained she prepared for the now-famous photo by “crying her eyes out.” (Hey, whatever works.)
According to the former Hooter’s waitress, she’s been contacted by people all over the world. And it turns out men like a bad girl because there have been marriage proposals and offers to pay her bills.
But Simmons wants everybody to know the arrest was a one-time thing and crime really isn’t what she’s about. She also wants Playboy to know that if they make an offer, she’d listen. The Ridiculously Photogenic Naked Convict does have a certain ring to it.
