BuzzFoto Blind Item

This very depressed C list actress is doing her best to find a way to survive her crushing mental illness. She’s engaged in very self destructive behaviors in the past as a coping mechanism, but her new drug is diving into one relationship after another. We recently heard about her breakup and now we’ve heard about her new relationship. We hear the relationship is not a good thing, because it’s abusive. On both ends.

Great! Another horrid Buzzfoto blind that SHOULDN'T be blind!

I hate these. I promise to refrain from commenting and to use my handy mouse to scroll on down the next time I see a BF blind here, but these are a *total* beat-down.

Again: I don't understand why Buzzfoto blinds are worthy of reposting on CDAN, yet Blind Gossip and Lainey ones are not.

Blind Gossip is notorious for "borrowing" items without attribution.

The writer has been called on it numerous times over the last few years.

If you read Michael K, you will see how many of them he gives the proper credit to.....

I find this very sad. Mental illness is a long battle.

@Anonymous -- I've heard that about BG, but their blinds seem pretty credible to me. I haven't noticed that they've ripped off other people's material, and I've never noticed if anyone's called the moderators on it.

In terms of ripping people off, the worst offender, as far as that's concerned, is Kaiser at celebitchy. ALL of her copy is paraphrased from other sources, and it's not even paraphrased in an interesting way. It wouldn't surprise me one bit if she suddenly "heard" of a blind item and decided to post it as her own -- even though she's just some bored Mid Atlantic housewife and probably hasn't EVER met/seen a celebrity.

I *know* that Michael K gives credit, but everything he DOES is generally awesome. Most of us would agree on that.

Sidenote: he has a blind today, too! I think it's Charlize and Keanu.

I'm guessing this is supposed to be Demi Lovato. But yes Enty, please post blinds from other sources, too :)

Ida Blankenship, the BG comments are heavily moderated.

@robert -- oh, I know. That's why I NEVER comment over there, even if I'm intrigued and have my own guesses for things. It's pretty annoying, too, because there might be about two comments one minute and then, like, one hundred the next. But I still read the blinds. I think they're articulate, as far as blinds are concerned, and more than a few have been proven correct.

I find moderation kinda insulting. Either be like Ted or Enty -- and let commenters post whatever they want (within reason), or be like Lainey -- she's upfront about how she doesn't want the kind of website which attracts idiotic thread wars, so she doesn't allow comments.

Some bloggers (hi, Kaiser!) post questionable content and can't take the resounding criticism they get from their (smarter, sensitive, more astute) readership, so they censor the hell out of everything. That's something to be said for Enty -- you can't say the dude hasn't acquired a thick skin. ;-)

RocketQueen said...

I can't stand the writing over at Celebbitchy/Kaiser. It's incredibly personal and biased in a way that makes me uncomfortable.

Renee Z?

@RQ -- I stopped looking at celebitchy after the tenth or so time she insinuated how someone like, say, Halle Berry looked "flabby" on a red carpet. I'm sure she's busy right now discussing how Beyonce needs to work on her cankle situation, or how Kate Middleton needs to gain twenty pounds so she can get knocked up soon.

She also ripped off FFF with her stupid Dong Day Afternoon or whatever the hell she calls it. Not to mention all the nicknames for celebs she's lifted from other bloggers. It's pathetic.

Jeri said...

Kaiser banned me after I said one of her posts was snarky, as usual.

She always trashes TMZ but reposts all their posts. If she hates em so much why read & repost continously.

I never comment at Celebitchy. First - because I'm a dude and I don't see many dudes posting on there. Second - I'm not a fan of "Dongs." And - it seems that Brangelina is God's gift while Jennifer is the Anti-christ. It's too much over there. And EVERYTHING and I mean EVERYTHING anybody wears is "Tragic" or a "Nightmare." And what's with all the Gwyneth hate? But what really soured it for me was all that royal wedding coverage. 3 whole pages worth. *ugh*

DLISTED Rules. As Does The Superficial and I Don't Like You In That Way. My new fave is CDAN. I LOVE this place.

Ida Blankenship said...

@Jeri -- Tee hee! She banned me after I said she sounded bitter. That website *should* be called Celebweenie. A TRUE bitch would just say whatever the hell she wanted to say and ignore the responses.

Ida Blankenship said...

Oh, Dlisted is king. I NEVER comment over there -- I've got no interest in diving headlong into THAT moshpit -- but I adore reading all the caption contest entries and stuff.

ONTD is highly amusing and relentlessly clever, but it will suck HOURS out of your day if you're not careful. But the commenters are amazing.

I just realized what I maaaaybe love the most about CDAN: the lack of Brangelina coverage. Honestly. Enty talks about the Kardashians more than Brangelina. That is AMAZING. I, for one, don't mind.
;-)

valerie said...

ONTD?

RocketQueen said...

Yay for Jason :) I really like The Superficial, too. That Fish guy is hilarious.

Ida Blankenship said...

@valerie -- it's really Oh No They Didn't. :-) But ONTD should work with any search engine. It's all user-generated content, so you get a lot of variety and different writing styles.

libby said...

I've read Dlisted since the first year, and I haven't commented more than 5 times in the last 5.
Lots of self-important 'thread police' and bullies.
MK is GOD!

beth said...

It's obviously Demi Lovato and it's solely based on the "group date" she had with Chris Brown (and Selena / Justin)....

jen said...

I think this blind is Demi Lovato. I hope not - the poor thing is so young & has already had such a rough go :(

Now that that's out of the way - FINALLY, FINALLY I'm starting to see some criticism of Kaiser at Celebitchy. I've called her out many times for her blatant misogyny. She's the WORST for that. I thought I must be nuts, because everyone else seemed to be kissing her ass. CDAN isn't the only place I've seen criticism of her recently. FINALLY...*feels vindicated* LOL!!!

P.S. No, I don't visit Celebitchy anymore in case anyone's all "Why go, then?" hehe ;)

allthesun said...

What about Love, as in Jennifer Love Hewitt and her rotating supply of Cartier Love bracelets?

Jamie's Girl said...

Please someone, help this young lady! If I knew you, I would help you!

Olivia Bergere said...

@Rocket Queen:And I thought I was the only one who felt that way.She doesn't report news as much as she blogs her personal opinions.

Olivia Bergere said...

Celebitchy has an audience of fawning sycophants.The cardinal rule is: never disagree. I find her tasteless, crude, and totally unoriginal.

Olivia Bergere said...

PS. i was also banned @Celebitchy after I commented that she was losing her objectivity.

RocketQueen said...

^^ wow, so basically she's a little dictator. On the one hand, I guess it's her site, on the other hand, it's an incredible turn off.

Jeri said...

Kaiser must have seen the comments, she deleted her link to CDAN. I had to do a search.

Glad to see I'm not alone. Hey, let's rate the celeb dresses.
