In an interview with Charlie Rose, Star War creator George Lucas did a lot of complaining about The Force Awakens—the first installment of the franchise since Lucas sold it to Disney for $4 billion. Of the new film, he said, “They wanted to do a retro movie. I don’t like that... These are my kids, all the Star Wars films. I loved them. I created them.”
“And you sold them,” Rose interrupted.
Lucas then grabbed his foot, slowly lifted it up to his face, shoved it into his mouth, and said:
“I sold them to the white slavers that takes these things, and...” [laughs]
Earlier this week, we discussed Daniel Giersch’s lawsuit against Vanity Fair, and that his lawyers ominously wrote that the suit was “only the beginning.” Well, that specific language has caused Celebitchy to theorize that Giersch’s ultimate goal is to stop Kelly Rutherford from publishing a tell-all.
Rutherford has been shopping a book. This is confirmed in a People article from April which states “she’s spreading awareness by writing a book about her ordeal.” Perhaps this was part of her plan all along – write a book and star in a Lifetime movie in which she’s a faultless American actress and devoted mom who fell in love with a nefarious German businessman, only to lose her kids and fortune in an international custody battle lasting for years. That’s the picture she’s been painting in the media, and Giersch is finally trying to show how wrong it is.
I don’t necessarily see how the dots connect on this one, but it’s sort of exciting to imagine that behemoth of a celebrity memoir.
Here’s a cute little selfie with Nicki Minaj, her brother who’s accused of raping a 12-year-old, and some other people.
