NBC strike.jpg

Nina B., aka the Slackmistress, kindasorta caught the Presidential daughter crossing the WGA picket line at NBC. She writes:

The writers were kept from crossing in front of her car by Secret Service; apparently the were afraid she would overhear and actually get our jokes.

Tomorrow, Jenna’s pushing her book on Ellen.

Thursday, Ellen hosts Keira Knightley and Toby Keith. Friday, it’s Paula Deen (who’s own show boast no union writers!). Strikers, you’ve been warned.

(And while we’re on the subject–what line is Kristin Gore walking?)

Kristin Gore’s Second Novel Out in July

Kristin Gore, daughter of Tipper and Al, gets the kitty-lick treatment from Deborah Solomon in the NYT. Solomon who, like so many others, seems to think that a week long gig at Saturday Night Live is somehow significant.

Gore’s no dummy, no fool–why not ask her some real questions? Examples: Do you think you’ve received special treatment as the child of a famous person? How do you separate your own achievements from those of your father? But Solomon doesn’t even try.

Gore has written a sequel, Sammy’s House, to Sammy’s Hill, her first roman a clef DC novel, which garnered good reviews and a movie deal with David O. Russell to direct.

LA Observed linked to an interview in Women’s Health but failed to notice the tense. Gore worked on Futurama, which has been off the air since 2003.
