We here at SFist like our celebrities like we like our men: insane, rude, dirty, and fabulous. Oh, wait, that's NOT how we like our men anymore (that's 12 years of therapy finally paying off, folks.) But any celebrity who seems too classy, clean, or "just like us" is not who makes us buy that Us magazine at the Cala point of purchase.

Our attitudes about celebrities mesh nicely with our attitude about our fair city, which we also love for its funk and circumstance -- hey, if we wanted the geographical equivalent of that tasteful Armani Oscars dress, we'd move to Menlo Park. And there's no local celeb who personifies San Francisco better than our own Dede Wilsey.
