Michael Sitrick, whom reportedly charges $695 an hour, is well known for handling high profiles celebs when they find themselves on the wrong side of the headlines. From Halle Berry's alleged hit-and-run mishap, Rush Limbaugh's oxy-contin scandal to Kim Basinger's bankruptcy, Sitrick's client roster reads like a dossier of by-gone scandals.

Sitrick wrote in his book, "Spin: How to Turn The Power of the Press to Your Advantage," 'Correcting a problem is necessary, but alas, rarely sufficient; that is where the spin comes in."
