The New York nonprofit that owns "Fashion Rocks" is suing Jay Penske's Mail.com Media Corporation—the parent company of Deadline Hollywood, Movieline, and Hollywood Life—for ripping off the charity concert's name and brazenly pretending to own it.
Bonnie Fuller finally re-launched HollywoodLife.com as a celebrity gossip site in her own image, and it's as nauseating as we feared: In Touch and Life & Style have indeed vomited all over a ridiculously loooong Web page.
Hollywood blogger Nikki Finke has always been cagey about her Web traffic. But having sold her website, the stabby gossipmonger can't keep her numbers private any longer. All she can do is try and push them up. Which we'd recommend.
Bonnie Fuller just hired TMZ's New York bureau chief, Will Lee, as executive editor of her soon-to-be relaunched HollywoodLife.com. Fuller is known for taking underlings' underwear and making them wash breast pumps. Our thoughts and prayers are with Lee tonight.
Well, Jay Penske is assembling quite a stable at his burgeoning online media company; first he bought Nikki Finke, Winchellian Hollywood blogger, now he's bringing on Bonnie Fuller, the notorious diva celeb-mag editor. Watch for sparks.
As the L.A. media otherwise disappers, Jay Penske is in empire-building mode. His hitherto low-profile Mail.com Media Corporation acquired Nikki Finke's showbiz blog and he backed Movieline in April. From what we've gleaned, the guy's a true Tinseltown dreamer.
