Wendy the Snapple Lady is now just Wendy. The long-time
spokeswoman and the Dr Pepper Snapple Group parted ways recently over a
contract disagreement, according to Newsday.
Wendy Kaufman told Newsday
that she couldn’t accept the contract because it was one-sided, paying her
based on appearances, with no guarantee that the company would schedule any.
Greg Artkop, spokesman for DPSG, called the contract “fair,”
saying it offered payment for work performed instead of a guaranteed fee. He
said it was her decision to leave the company and wished Kaufman “nothing but
the best in whatever she does in the future.
That future will continue to include pitching products, Newsday reported. Kaufman told the paper
that she will do voice-overs for cellular phone maker Motorola.
