'The Bachelor'

Ditzy 'I Don't Read' Lawyer

Kicks ASS In Court

1/15/2014 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Hot bachelorette Andi Dorfman REALLY sold herself short when she ditzily described herself as a lawyer who barely reads -- and TMZ has the proof ... video showing Andi kicking some ass in a huge murder trial involving a famous rapper and the Russian mob.

The court footage was shot Monday in Atlanta during a hearing for the trial of ex-mobster Mani Chulpayev, who's accused of playing a key role in the 2012 murder of rapper Lil Phat.

26-year-old Andi -- an Assistant District Attorney in the Fulton County DA's Office -- kills it.

Pretty shocking ... considering the way Andi presented herself on "The Bachelor" recently.  "Legally Blonde" springs to mind -- and it raises the question ... Does a girl have to dumb herself down in order to attract a guy?

Eh, the way I see it, she's a 26 year old bar certified attorney. It's probably a reasonable assumption that she's spent the majority of the past decade hovering over books. I'm not sure that leisure reading would be my #1 hobby in her case either. She identified herself as an attorney immediately, so it's a bit of a leap to assume that she was trying to dumb herself down.

Nothing at all is kick ass about what she said in court. A monkey can say that

Does not leisurely reading in your spare time really make a person dumb?

How does that clip show she 'killed it' in the court room. Not impressed.

Yes, I do believe that a very intelligent woman will have to dumb herself down to at least the level of the potential mate, if not lower. Or she'll have to look for someone that is at least on the same level as she is.

As much as we like to think that we're in 2014 and we're equal, most men still have the need to be superior. So, if a man says 'I want an intelligent woman!' , what he forgets to include is ' long as she's less intelligent than me....'

Well with all the stories coming out now how Reality TV is not really reality, I have to guess the producers TOLD her to act like that

She didn't say she didn't read. He told her he wouldn't like to be a lawyer because he doesn't read. She was telling him that in practicing law there is not a lot of reading, she isn't sitting with case law in her face morning noon and night. And she wasn't. That is what the legal assistants are doing. The story is bogus. Typical make something out if nothing. Twist the words to suit the story. Nothing here, move along. Buuuut, if you want to write a story about a real village idiot, rewind some of the things Juan Pablo has said. A girl (Clare I think) told him her dad died. His response: "Oh". Yep, he's a real winner.

How did she "kill it"? All she did was repeat "I've given them everything" multiple times for 28 seconds. *I* could do that.

More like...does a girl have to dumb herself down to appear on that show?

And c'mon, TMZ. A few of you are lawyers. You know that to tell you a judge that you provided all docs in discovery isn't exactly "kicking ass." I guess it's Exaggeration Wednesday.

Andi Dorfman sounds like an SNL character. And... is she holding a pink masturbatory toy?

Wow, TMZ, you guys would be a sucker for every lawyer who does a TV commercial - as long as she's a hot babe.

Yes, they do. It wouldn't happen if these same women hadn't been raised to base at least part of their value on being married.

What's the big deal here? She's doing her job! Just like in ANY profession, there are the good and the bad - the average and the better than average. A small - very small - percentage become Super Stars! So, what? It 's called LIFE and she's living her's. End of story.
