FINKE AND THE STINK

It’s inside baseball Hollywood style, but I am fascinated by the Nikki Finke/Deadline.com drama that has developed over the years.. if you don’t know Finke, she owns Hollywood with insults and exclusives.. she began DEADLINE.COM, and then someone came along and bought it.. she left and started her own site—nameed Nikkifinke.com of course..

Then came a legal dispute.. and then this: Apparently, on Thursday much of the new website was taken after another website, “NikkieStink.com,” published rarely seen photos and videos of Finke. It promised to publish even more if Finke didn’t stop insulting people in Hollywood.. Finke has still maintained some activity on Twitter.

Whoever owns NikkiStink.com also bought a .net and .org.

NIKKISTINK reminded us of some of the ‘nasty’ comments that Finke has broadcast in the past. Among them (and try NOT to laugh):
Nathan Fillion: “If he gets any fatter, he’s going to need his own channel”

Kate Hudson: “Someone give Kate a cookie: I know the mags said she was fat 3 years ago, but jeez”

Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger: “both seeing the same plastic surgeon for frequent facelift discounts”

Billy Crystal: “His face looks like it was ironed – and I swear I can still see the scorch marks”

Dustin Hoffman: “Remember when (he) was funny?  Before Botox froze his features”

John Travolta’s: “triple chin”

As far as who owns the STINK version of Finke? The TIMES tells us that everyone in Tinseltown is a suspect..

And all of this may lead to Finke returning to journalism and again working for other people.

Cruel stuff.

Hollyweird indeed.

New Year's Eve.. Rockin' without Dick Clark in '13

Welcome to the final minutes of the year 2012. Yes. Already. It was so looked forward to, and it is ending so quickly...

It's minus Dick Clark this year, though. And that is notable. Fergie is showering ABC viewers tonight in the pre-game with Dick Clark related footage. Donna Summers is playing while the Doors are swaying. Yes, it's a stroll down amnesia lane in the fast lane. Dick Clarkless 2013. No countdown with the master of Times Square this year.

The show goes on, of course. With Ryan Seacrest to help. Before Seacrest will be 'out' there will be a number of events that occur. A massive ball will drop in Times Square. Revelers will kiss their hearts out.. then race for port-a-potties and their hotel rooms. Maybe stop by a pub and have a cup of cheer..

All around the world, the events are taking place. Some places on Earth are already 2013. The Pope will have a homily about how peace could be achieved. Fireworks will fly high into the night sky.. People will embrace …

Neve Campbell laments her post-SCREAM life: I was constantly being offered horror films, because I was known for horror films, or bad romantic comedies

Neve Campbell Confirms Her 'Scream' Notoriety Inspired Her Decision to Leave Hollywood »

“I needed a minute. In my 20s, it all hit so fast and so big that it was a little overwhelming,” Campbell shared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. “Wonderful, obviously, and I’m very grateful for it, but it got to a level, also, where the kinds of things that I was being offered were not the things I wanted to do. I was constantly being offered horror films, because I was known for horror films, or bad romantic comedies.”

And this week she will be jumping out of building with the Rock in theaters ..

All 'scream queens' have gone through a period of confusion, denial.. acceptance. And now for Jamie Lee Curtis 40 years after her introduction to movies via being chased by killer Michael Myers, she is back for a final round.. 
Just as Campbell came home for the final SCREAM..
