Remember when we did a post on “The List?” You know, the encyclopedic tome of media outlets, celebrities and other folk who the ninnies can’t stand because they deign to compliment Kristen? Well, Ann Curry, step on up.
Seems her reference to Rob’s “beautiful girlfriend” caused quite the little stir in ninnieland.
Now, we’ll admit to being a huge fan of Ms. Curry’s. HUGE. We think she’s one of the classiest gals in broadcast television (Diane Sawyer is our favorite). But we’re also ready to admit that Ann is much better at general human interest or world news coverage than she is in entertainment reporting.
That being said, the ninnies are certain, CERTAIN, that Ms. Curry got a big ‘ole fat Summit paycheck to make her end-of-interview comment about Rob’s “beautiful girlfriend.”
We thought she handled the moment with great aplomb, and while it was a bit awkward and rushed (likely due to some producer giving her the “wrap it up” signal off-camera), it’s obvious to us, and to everyone who has even an iota of common sense, that the proverbial cat is out of the bag.
So, while we had a few moments to while away the time before doing such important household tasks as dusting our Robert Pattinson commemorative plate collection, or vacuuming our hand-loomed Edward Cullen rug (we are all desperate housewives, afterall – at least according to the ninnies), we thought we’d put together a quick compendium of people and media outlets that are ninny-approved, and compare it to the list that gets their porcine tails all twisted and bent out of shape.
Hey, at least the ninnies are keeping company with someone.
ONTD (Oh, No They Didn’t)
David Cronenberg – hey, we like him, too!
All credible, don’t you think?
Matt Lauer (remember Tristan Blewart)
David Letterman (for his first Rob interview in 2009)
Lainey Whatsherface (we really could care less about her, either)
Taryn Ryder with Celebuzz (formerly with E! Online)
Bill Condon (his “I worship at the altar of KS” comment did them in)
Marcus Foster (videogate)
Reese Witherspoon (she’s really nonnie-approved, but they hated when she said nice things about Kristen)
Tom Sturridge (he complimented K on her work in OTR)
- basically any other actor, director, producer or music / media professional who has every worked and paid a compliment to Kristen on her work ethic, abilities, creativity and dedication to craft.
Vogue US and Italia
Elle UK and US
Glamour US, UK, France
- any other magazine that starts with any letter between J and U
We’re certain, too, as we get closer and closer to On the Road’s release and Snow White and the Huntsman’s release and end of filming, that more complimentary words are to come.
Of course, according to the nonnies, all of these people are on the Summit dole, or are being paid by Kristen’s management group to “tow the line,” and say only nice things, because there is no way, NO WAY, according to the ninnies (who, as we know are expert on all things movie production), that Kristen could be viewed as anything other than the bitch-faced harpy they make her out to be. Funny, really, seeing as so many ninnies are bitch-faced harpies themselves. Guess it takes one to know one.
So, you see, BWAN friends, all it takes is a quick look at “The List,” and we’re pretty certain we can predict whose company you’d rather keep; and as always, who is the more sane and reasonable among them.
Until next time (and boy, do we have some doozies ahead).
P.S. We fancy ourselves little psychics sometimes. So let's "seer" what's in store for the up coming years.
We predict that a certain englishman and a sweet Cali girl will begin a love affair with Starbucks in 2013. We're off to buy stock in instagram.
