    Question E! True Hollywood Stories

    I've always wondered about these...does anyone know if the E! True Hollywood Stories are always authorized by the people they biography? Or could they be made without the celeb knowing about it?

    They don't necessarily have to consult with the celebrity.
    If something appears in the paper and the celeb doesn't sue,
    it becomes part of the public record, and in that case,
    E! has to give acknowledgement to the source of the news,
    not the celeb him-/herself.

    And if the celeb goes to court and is involved in a lengthy trial,
    they can refer to the court records without paying anyone.
    (If there is footage of the trial, like the OJ Simpson case,
    then they have to make an arrangement with ABC or CNN
    or whoever.)

    Yeah a producer (the main person who makes an episode) from the show (there are several producers and they all come w/ ideas and are given the greenlight to go ahead w/ that idea or not by their bosses) came to a class of mine last year and she said that they do ask the subject if they want to be involved, but they go ahead w/ the show if they're rejected by the star, they've only had legal issues w/ a few stars, i forget who, but they always manage to get around them and do the show anyway.
    I like when they take a boring ass subject matter like the tv show Blossom and try to turn into this big dramatic show; its so stupid!

    ^^hehhe, I remember seeing the Blossom one. She was on it too and she turned out even more unfortunate looking than she originally was!

    uh yeah i was laughing and pointing at my t.v. for her being such a fat ugly ass dyke and my sister got mad at me and said, "she's pregnant you half-wit" just like outta the Romy and Michelle movie, but i swear she was a dyke or maybe played one on Fat Actress or i just confuse her w/ Darlene from Roseanne or just assume that every former ugly fat female child star is a dyke, but yeah; she looked like hell in a handbasket!

    ^^HAha!! I thought something was wrong with her too, more than looking fat!
    They never show them from the waist down either. I opposed to E! True Hollywood Stories when they took "Mysteries and Scandles" off with AJ Benza. As a whole, the manage to turn up some dirt on people, which makes me watch.

    It's funny how easy it is to parody the poor things, though, because it's always the same guy narrating, with the same voice inflections, and sad piano music when the starlet's parents divorce, etc.

    Her husband must have been drunk or she was a last resort.

    I love THS! The Blossom one was hilarious--so was Home Improvement. That Tim Allen is a serious asshole.

    I liked the Mary-Kate and Ashley one where MK and A started talking about how Billboard Dad was "edgy" and "powerful."
