More Nadine

Not only did Nadine's new found publicist, Jesse Fuller, send me these cell phone images, but she was also grateful enough to provide captions as well.

Subject: Fw: RE: FW: the real jessica stands up
To: Jessica Coen

From: "Nadine Haobsh"*
*No other blogs give readers tools like this.

Hey Jessica,
Here you go - hope they're up to the Gawker standards! ;)

1. When we emailed you months ago were you getting nervous that your Blog was getting too much attention?

Nervous? Moi? I was simply giddy that you deigned to notice li'l ol'

2. Be honest about the mass email that got you caught, did you mean to send it?

Definitely not. Fun, cushy job with free highlights and massages
thrown in for kicks? I would have held onto that forever.

3. Do you think that blogging about work or inside secrets is in poor

In theory: no. Down with the corporate machine! Truth and sincerity
shall prevail! In actuality: um, yes. Can I have my job back now, please?

4. When did you lose your virginity? Did you kiss and tell or keep it
secret? Who was it?

A lady never kisses and tells.

5. Who are you dating, has the fame gotten you access to some men with
private jets?

I'm holding out for a contract like Katie's. 10 mil for 5 years, baby.

6. If Nick Denton was to start a Gawker beauty and fashion blog do you
think you would be a good candidate?

Absolutely. My platform:
1) Thou shalt wear mascara at all times
2) Bouncy, shiny hair equals happiness
3) Kate Moss may be crazy, but sartorially she can do no wrong

7. Who is your least favorite reporter/columnist/journalist?

Oh, I think I've already burned enough bridges this month.

8. You have become a sort of insta-media star, what do you think of the
fame? Was it worth it?

Honestly, I don't think so. I let down people I care for - not a great

9. Do you suggest Conde Naste employees blog secrets so they too can
get a book deal?

Secrets? EVERYONE knows Lancome has the best mascara.

10. Are you worried that you’ve become famous for doing something
wrong? Kind of like how Monica Lewinsky became famous.

Wait, you mean people aren't interested in me because of my winning
smile and impossible-to-pronounce last name?

11. Who is the biggest bitch at Ladies Home Journal?

Apparently, it was me.

12. What is the worst product/brand/ that LHJ praised?

We genuinely loved everything we praised...but maybe we liked the
advertiser products a tad more.

13. How much free stuff did LHJ really receive. Did it ever pass down The ranks or was it always the treasures of the editors?

Our beauty closets contained enough face cream to hydrate and soften the entire Eastern seaboard. Luckily for the copy editors, we were generous.

14. Do you think you should have been fired or that Ladies Home Journal overreacted?

Well, I wasn't fired...but yes, I do think my intentions were
misinterpreted, unfortunately.

15. What are your future plans?

Nick, my darling, I'm waiting by the phone.

16. Do you think that it is wrong for editors to get so much free shit?
We love here it at Gawker.

Seriously, who doesn't like free stuff??

17. LHJ said you were immoral, is there anything you can accuse them of
that pales in comparison?

Did they really say that? I only heard a 'no comment'.

18. If you could say anything to the unruly Gawker readers what would it

You're fine. Washing your hair is totally overrated anyway.

19. Any shoutouts?

Go see The Walkup August 20th at Don Hill's. And, for the love of God, start watching Veronica Mars. That is all.

I could throw in my tagline 'Stay beautiful!' here, but a friend
pointed out that it reminds her of Ron Burgundy's 'Stay classy, San Diego!'.

And, you know, that's not quite the desired effect. :)

Two Faced Fags

No matter what you think about A lists or B-lists or C-lists these guys are two-faced pricks.

First he blogged how he liked the blog. Then he changed positions faster then those Paris and Paris kids. Finally, this spineless sub human IM'd me and changed his story again saying it's ok to post family stuff if my alter ego herself put it out there in the blogoshpere.

Judge me how u want, but there is no reason that us snarcacists should recieve any more protection then the celebrites we slam. As for Blogebrity, kiss my cute little ass and go crawl back under that content-less bullshit two colum site. Jarvis was right, it's all about the links, not your trivial and impotent lists.

At 12:10pm he posted how he hates the site. By approx. 12:38pm he had a complete change of heart. Below is our exchange. Read his bullshit for yourself.

jessicacgawker: listen you rock, don't know why you are taking the high road with me
Decaf Silicon: i appreciate it, but dude, you're nearing what many jurisdictions call stalking
jessicacgawker: it's all stuff she posted
jessicacgawker: how is that possible?
Decaf Silicon: links to her dad and her high school?
jessicacgawker: yeah
jessicacgawker: its all in there like Mott's
jessicacgawker: what do you think I am wearing a trench coat and sunglasses
Decaf Silicon: hmm
Decaf Silicon: you know, if you really did get it all from links she already made
Decaf Silicon: i have to admit
Decaf Silicon: (12:39:36) Me: hmm
(12:39:56) Me: you know, if you really did get it all from links she already made
(12:39:59) Me: i have to admit
Decaf Silicon: that seems pretty fair
jessicacgawker: listen it's all fair, as I mentioned those Gawkerites make their living off shit like this, why should they live in glasshouses
jessicacgawker: and throw stones?
jessicacgawker: they are all big kids, you wan't to revel in the limelight? no problem, just be ready for the heat of the lamps

Daddy's girl

This guy is partially responsible for yours truly. In a scene that is mentally mortifying and an image I never want to fathom or recall, somehow this guy got really lucky one night and 9 months later out came baby me. Even though I may mention how special July 20th is and how he looks good for 60, please don't call him or send him mail. Google satellite has been reduced to a tool for the Satanic and evil. is a kiss and tell as well.

All this Michigan stuff has got me thinking of my old stomping grounds. How sad self-reflections can be.

Update: Daddy writes back

What can I say, when you've been quoted this very day in the NYT. As I'm (correctly) "partially responsible", you need to wax sentimentally about the other person responsible, AKA Mom. Love, the person f/k/a MPF

Hey now, if I am gonna slam Lindsay and her parents, my parents have to be fair game to some extent too, right?
