Should I cut off my balls to save 35% on a Lenovo laptop? And how should I spell "Star?"

I received the following email from the National Association of Professional Women:

Star (or Starr) Jones (former Celebrity Apprentice contestant) is the national spokeswoman and Ivanka Trump was keynote speaker at NAPW's first conference. Is The Donald the boss?




NAPW Membership benefits have included a course in FBAR and FATCA Reporting Requirements, discounts on Lenovo laptops, AT&T and Sprint phones, televisions at BestBuy and tickets to Disney World.
 
Sorry, Donnie and Star/Starr. While I'm honored to have been chosen, I'm not likely to cut off my balls to save money on a Samsung or a chance to meet Goofy.



Hmm -- one NAPW press release features STARR Jones. In another it's merely STAR Jones. 
  • "the 2013 NAPW National Networking Conference is on April 26th in New York City and will feature NAPW National Spokeswoman Starr Jones and keynote speakers Martha Stewart and Arianna Huffington."
  • Star Jones is one of the most accomplished and recognizable women in the country,” says Matt Proman, founder of National Association of Professional Women. “Star’s personal and professional story is unique and compelling. She is a self-starter who opens her own doors and makes the most of every opportunity. Each of our members is sure to identify with and learn from some aspect of Star’s life.” 
  • Apparently the NAPW Jones is really "Star."
  • "Starr Jones" is a male actor and makeup artist.
