It appears Darling Nikki is mad at me. Usually when this happens, Hollywood's Queen of Taking Vacation just sends me hate mail. But she's taking it to a new level. I've been completely deleted from her site.
Yep. Dumped. Booted. Evicted like Ruth Madoff from her Upper East Side penthouse. Nikki erased her 12/4/08 posting about the Hollywood Temp Diaries.*
I don't know what I did to achieve this level of ignominy. Sure I've scooped her a few (10) times. And, yes, I pointed out that she probably should call Vince McMahon before grousing about getting duped by a publicity stunt. But heck, Roger Ebert shat all over Darling Nikki back in 2006 and she hasn't sacked that posting. In fact, I believe I'm the first posting in the history of Deadline Hollywood to receive this unceremonious heave-ho.
I've been told "You haven't made it in Hollywood until someone hates you." So I guess I should wear this as a Badge of Honor.
Or perhaps it's Nikki's way of apologizing. If so, "Apology Accepted."
*For those of you who missed it, she offered info about my site but suggested I was simply attempting to "exploit" recent layoffs at NBC through my blog. I countered the following day by posting my earnings statement from the Social Security Administration. I haven't been on a date since.
