Page 6 Isn’t Exactly Right — But Then What Else Is New?

guider.jpgPage 6 was piling on the Hollywood Reporter today because the Rupert Murdoch-owned New York Post thought it could get away with it. The Post tried to say the Reporter is so dead broke the paper isn’t even sending anyone to the Sundance Film Festival next month.

But HP Editor Elizabeth Guider said the Post couldn’t be further from the truth. What a surprise!

“As The Hollywood Reporter does every year, we are sending two of our full-time film reporters to cover the news at Sundance as well as our chief film reviewer Kirk Honeycutt and three of our regular, longtime film critic outside contributors. In addition THR will field a small, 3-to-5-person video and digital team as we are increasingly interested in boosting our online offerings at important events like key film festivals.

Like most publishers these days we are having to be leaner and meaner, but also hopefully smarter in our coverage. That said, we have every intention of covering key industry gatherings of importance to our readership, and Sundance is certainly one of them.

And yes you can quote me.”

The Reporter doesn’t deserve to deal with that kind of nonsense.

NY Post DOT Com and the Sixers

thumb_default.gif

Since the LA Times doesn’t have a gossip page, we have to make do with Page Six of the NY Post. Now, the webversion, PageSix.com, launches with a new design (making it look like Dlisted), there’s even more news you can’t really use, exactly.

We love the contributors’ bios, but of course, they need a little more information which we’re happy to provide.

Noelle Hancock was Us Weekly’s online editor and had been at the NY Observer. Upward and onward in journalism.

Jan Heger, the daughter of Paris Hilton DUI lawyer Richard Hutton, used to be a researcher at TMZ.

Jana Winter and Elizabeth Wolff have both been kicking around the Post.

Sean Borg–a semi-celebrity refugee from TMZ.

Jackie Gallo and Jarett Wieselman were at InTouch. Maybe they still are.

Libby Keatinge is the author of Beverly Hills Tutor and co-authored The Player’s Handbook with Heidi Fleiss.

And there’s a spot open.

Indiana Jones Spoilers Leaked

“Page Six” has some details about the dancing fool who leaked secrets about the new Indiana Jones movie, despite the NDAs everyone signed. Spielberg has cut the guy’s scene in retaliation.

And somehow the long arm of Spielberg convinced the guy’s hometown paper to retract the story. Those Canucks – weenies. Here’s the whole thing for those who can’t figure out Google cache:

The Edmond Sun
by James Coburn

EDMOND-Tyler Nelson’s dancing talent has landed him a part in “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.”

The fourth film in the Indiana Jones saga will once again star Harrison Ford and is produced and directed by Steven Spielberg and George Lucas. Release of the film is expected during the week of Memorial Day, according to Lucasfilm.

The 23-year-old actor and dancer is the son of Theresa and Dr. David Nelson of Edmond. He now lives in Los Angeles and also appears in an upcoming movie with Brad Pitt.

“He has demonstrated that he is tenacious once setting a goal. He loves the process of mastering a new talent,” Theresa Nelson said.

What Tyler understands about the Indiana Jones movie is based on his own scenes that were filmed during the first week of September. Tyler plays a Russian soldier. Only the lead actors were ever given scripts, so Tyler still doesn’t know the entire plot.

“Apparently, the Soviet Army was searching for a crucifix skull in the jungles of South America and Indiana Jones was searching, as well,” Tyler said.

Laurie David and Larry David Splitting Up

larry_david_382x174.jpg

Page 6 is reporting that Laurie and Larry David are separating after 14 years of marriage.

Laurie recently toured with Sheryl Crow to publicize the dangers of global warming and got Larry to drive a Prius on Curb Your Enthusiasm. Bet he writes a Ferrari into the next season.

He’s worth some $250 million. They have homes in LA and Martha’s Vineyard, (remember his tiff with Architectural Digest?) and in 2004, he told Eric Alterman for a piece on Hollywood fundraising in The Atlantic:

I heard nothing about the environment for all our lives and now this. I wish she would at least take back her own name.

That’s not going to happen. Larry David’s such the professional curmudgeon that it’s hard to tell when the joke stops.

Ivanka Trump Collects Weirdos and Losers, aka Andy Dick, George Gurley

What is it about the Ivanka? Page 6 is reporting that Andy Dick was all over her at a recent Jimmy Kimmel Live taping. She told the tabloid:

I think he’s a comic genius, but he seems to have a few issues…He was in an incapacitated state.

When is he not? And GlossedOver posts about writer George Gurley’s porn prose piece in Marie Claire. Gurley wrote:

Ivanka, the vice president of real-estate development and acquisitions for the Trump Organization, impeccably groomed and straining the buttons of her red shirtdress, picks up a fat stack of papers and slams them onto her desk.

Glistening orbs, anyone? You can practically hear the aptly-named Gurley begging to be body-slammed onto the carpet.
