E! has become very effective in programming for the 18-34 and beyond female 
market.

Not all of it. I don't even know who these people *are*. I can under-
stand an airhead like Paris Hilton becoming well known because of her 
family, but where on earth did these people come from?

Shouldn't Patty Winter post her own photo before criticizing Paris Hilton?
                                            
Not
The better question is who spends more time on their knees, you or
Paris? :)

At the very least she has a lot of dwarves hanging about.  Someday 
someone will explain to her that talking about "killfiles" has nothing 
to do with TV and then she'll say, "I'm melting!"

It's a family of whores that Bruce Jenner married into; prior to that, 
their claim to fame was that the original father was one of OJ's lawyers.
                                            
Patty
So I guess people who pay attention to such things know them from
their original "claim to fame"? Because otherwise, wouldn't they
be the Jenners? I still don't understand how being the family of
one of OJ's lawyers could make them so "famous;" that's an awfully
tenyous connection to celebrity. But I guess in L.A., nonsense like 
that is commonplace.

These are good points, and I don't have an answer for them.  The first I 
heard of Kim, the most famous of them, was when she made a sex tape, 
apparently to cash in on the Paris Hilton sex tape.  The thing is, I'd 
never heard a hint of a whisper of Kim Kardashian before that, and I 
have no idea why anyone cared.  AFAIK it's not like it was a stolen sex 
tape and people thought they were seeing something sneaky (and, yes, 
I've seen about 2 minutes of it -- she's unattractive and boring in 
bed).  Somehow she parlayed this into the TV show, and used that to be 
in Playboy.  BTW, please note that when I call her a whore, I mean it in 
the literal sense of the word.  Now I guess she's dating or married to 
some sports figure, but of course that doesn't mean anything to me 
either.  She seems to be famous simply for being famous; I have no idea 
what the original spark was.

So not only was it stolen, but it was about someone who wasn't really
famous? Yeah, that does seem like an odd basis for sudden celebrity.


So other than the lawyer ex-father, *this* how the family gained
celebrity? Through a sex tape of one of the daughters?? Yikes...


Patty

p.s. I really do know how to spell "tenuous." :-) It was just a typo...

I'm now unclear on the stolen part.  Her Wiki, which is clearly written 
by her or a sycophant (okay, she can't possibly write, so not her) says 
it was stolen, but she talks about marketing it like it was intentional.

As far as I can tell, yes.

Interesting--both Anim8r and "David" posted the same "I don't know what 
the fuck is going on!" posts and you responded.  You must be bored.

Oh, and debutantes are supposed to be a new thing?  Haven't these 
useless fucks ever listened to a Cole Porter song?

I'm not sure about "David", but Anim8r strikes me as someone who still 
listens to records by the Archies and the Monkees.

I'm actually suffering through "De-Lovely" right now.  Great music, 
horrible film.  Another painful to sit through Ashley Judd film.  Man, I 
love her, but has she ever made a good movie?

I find "Double Jeopardy" to be highly entertaining, even though it's 
premise is idiotic. And "Kiss The Girls" is... OK.
                                            
Anim8rFSK
Yeah, "Kiss the Girls" was the best I could think of, and I still only 
watched it 'cause she was in it.  Lemme look up "Double Jeopardy" ...

Oh.  Yeah, I saw that.  Again, only sat through it for her.  Which isn't 
a recommendation; I sat through "Someone Like You" for her.  And 
"Twisted"  I did finally bail on "The Passion of Darkly Noon"

Crosspost added to rec.arts.movies.past-films since we're now talking 
old Ashley Judd movies.

The strangest Ashley Judd movie I ever saw was "Eye of the Beholder"
with Ewan McGregor (I even saw it in the theater!!) - it certainly was
memorable to me, even if I wouldn't necessarily describe it as
"good".

I have not seen most of her later movies, like "Twisted" and "High
Crimes" so I can't comment on them.

But, if I had to recommend one - it'd be "Double Jeopardy".  :)

And Marc Behm's novel was even better. I liked the flick a lot and
would love to see the French version, Claude Miller's "Deadly
Circuit." "Eye of the Beholder" was at least a novel twist on the
private eye story.

Have you seen "Someone Like You"?  It's the one Cheryl Deering and I
