Anthony, a congressman with mayoral ambitions, and Blake are both dealing with the release of photos that, rumored to be of them, show them in various states of undress — how will it affect them?

Anthony Weiner and Blake Lively are not having the best week. Both have had to deal with compromising photos of themselves hitting the web. In Anthony’s case, a photo of his erect penis obscured by his boxers that he says is the result of someone hacking his Twitter. As for Blake, full frontal nude shots, and a whole lot of them, that her rep has said are not of her. But how does this affect their public image, and does one sex have it better than the over?

For many celebs, among them Christina Aguilera, Chris Brown and Ashley Greene, the release of rumored nude photos did nothing but help their careers. Chris came back into the public eye after a lengthy, and necessary absence, Ashley separated herself from her other Twilight costars and Christina managed to get everyone to stop talking about her botching of the national anthem at the Superbowl.

Of course no one used the scandal of nude photos, well video, better than Kim Kardashian. She has made a career for not only herself but her whole family in just a few short years because of one sex tape.

All this bodes well for Blake as entertainers, whether male or female, seldom seem to suffer any sort of major backlash when these photos hit. If anything, they are beneficial to the careers of these artists.

Politicians on the other hand are different, especially ones like Anthony with mayoral ambitions. The most recent example of a pic going wide was Rep. Chris Lee from New York who resigned over a shirtless photo he sent to a woman on Craigslist. Anthony has chosen to no longer comment, and we will see how that goes.

So HollywoodLifers, who has it easier in these scandals?
