Nikki Casts a Long Shadow

nikki2.jpgTurns out I’m not the only media blog running a Nikki-Finke-related contest. (I’m still accepting entries, by the way. Keep them coming!) The results of Gawker’s Nikki Finke Awful PR Award contest are in, and it’s a pretty impressive compendium of bad publicist behavior.

Also, the gawksters report receiving a missive from a respondent claiming that the real reason Finke doesn’t do magazine work is because she doesn’t need the money due to a hefty divorce settlement. Say it ain’t so, Nikki! I thought you were proud of being ‘downwardly mobile.’
