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.
