Leaked email fight that included almost every media CEO big wig. Kind of gets you into the inner workings of Hollywood. Ugly, rich, spoiled narcissists. Yet fascinating.
Finally Deadline breaks something that isn't a PR puff piece or casting news.
The "Joan Crawford - Mercedes McCambridge" comment @ OP and "Mrs. Garrett" @ R1 is ME!!!!!!!!
All of the Emanuel brothers are crazy assholes with a mean streak.
So is Nikki Finke getting fired or not?
Ha! I can't believe I actually know Shelli Azoff. She is a raging unbalanced cunt (when I worked with her, before her cancer,so maybe she's changed) Two pyschopaths going at each other.
Was she the one that got cancer from her botox?
Yes, all the Emanuels are homophobic sociopaths. Their parents used to set them on each other for sport.
Wow, these people are nuts and have way too fucking much money and hardly any class.
This is why they still hate us
My grandmother once said that the worst people on the planet are Jews.
Finally, something interesting to read for awhile, thanks OP.
[quote]I have more money then[sic] I can spend (not saying I would say no to more),
They're all that way
I'm a management consultant, and was approached to work with an entertainment conglomerate. They all act and talk this way, as though the May sweeps or the People's Choice awards were the equivalent of curing cancer or pushing back the Eastern front. They keep score with acquisitions (e.g., coffee machines to airplanes). And they scream...all of them.
Just absolute horrible people, the worst I've ever encountered professionally, and I've worked with Wall Street, tobacco companies, and defense contractors. I refused to take the project.
R2 - luv you!!
I haven't read your link yet, OP but I will. I won't disagree at all with what's been said about the Emanuel brothers, but I will add that Nikki Finke and Deadline are in CAA's pocket and they shill for CAA every chance they get. They are always on CAA's side.

Don't they essentially have a very silly job? They wrangle jobs for actors. That's it.
Jew on Jew violence.
When Steely Dan used Cuervo Gold in their song Hey nineteen , Irving Azoff their manager, tried to get some points/money from Cuervo Gold! What a shameless money whore.
Ari might be a nasty cunt but so is Shelli. She bought a fucking plane...wow. A coffee machine? Big fucking deal. Maybe the both of them need to get a life while they are at it.
What ever happened to the so-called nice Jewish girl or guy? How the fuck did people like Ari and Mrs Azoff become like this? No Hitlerian responses please!
Certain industries, or agencies' cultures bring out certain personality traits that over time come to dominate a person. They are so insular, so immersed in their games, they couldn't function in any other "world."
Fuck all of them. They have no idea that they look like and have become monsters. We all have the capacity to be monsters, but some people are attracted to those environments where they can articulate the beast within.
The general nature of Hollywood, with all its glamorous pretensions, combined with the mercurial nature of the business, where fortunes can be very easily made without the discipline that other careers require (say, law or the medical field), tends to attract psychopaths.
Both Emanuels seem very gay. Queeny
I passed Rahm's house. He didn't use to have special police security and a driver always at the ready. Now he does. Granted, some labor union people picketed his house, but still, he acted like he wasn't going to do all that when he started.
This is what inbreeding leads to.
Most of the very successful Jewish people I know through work are paranoid, and suspicious, but mostly about tiny unimportant details. They watch every move you make and are oddly concerned with trivial things like the heating, cooling, or lighting in a room (obsession #1), or whether anybody MIGHT get red wine on their shitty new carpet. It's exhausting to be around. These two sound like they deserve each other, but Emanuel sounds worse.
Please don't let them be....
What's with all the psychotic anti-Semitism on this thread? These people's backgrounds are irrelevant, and your gross bigotry is worse than anything in the emails at issue.
Gods chosen..........what a joke !
There is actually a yiddish word to describe Ari, Shelli and Irving. They're shandas--meaning an embarrassment in front of the gentile world, right up there with David Berkowitz.
White people 'problems'
Some fucking evil grandmother that was.
This is why they still hate us
This is why we still hate you
No, every Palestinian, you hate Jews because you're raised on Jew hatred with your mother's milk and because the idea of Jewish political self determination drives you insane.
R26 I've noticed that rich people like Ari and Mrs Azoff are materially successful but extremely unhappy with their lives. They spend time chewing each other out then go to the psychiatrist 3 times a week! They might have big bank accounts but are miserable cunts.
[quote]They might have big bank accounts but are miserable cunts.
Which makes them typical of their kind.
Don't forget Mama Emanuel made both her boys take ballet classes
[quote]No, every Palestinian, you hate Jews because you're raised on Jew hatred with your mother's milk and because the idea of Jewish political self determination drives you insane.
Yeah, self-determination... like doing business with Apartheid South Africa. Israel has become a haven for racist, Jewish supremacists. Only lunatics like you defend their behavior these days.
Oh and to the whining bitch talking about anti-semitism, go look up some of the stories about racist prick Ari, not to mention his whole racist family, including their father.
Some Jews seem to think they should be allowed to say whatever the hell they want about entire groups of people in the same breath as complaining about anti-semitism. Get over yourselves. You're just as capable of being vile bigots as anyone else, and when you are, you lose the right to scream about anti-semitism.
"or whether anybody MIGHT get red wine on their shitty new carpet"
OMG - almost every one of the Mothers of my Jewish friends were EXACTLY concerned about this when I was growing up!
Zeke the doctor is great. He's been on MSNBC several times and is smart and thoughtful. He doesn't seem combative or obnoxious at all.
I've seen him get in arguments with other people before, R41. He is the least aggressive of the three, though.
Interestingly enough, their adopted sister - Shoshanna, I think - was not forced to engage in the family tradition of unbridled bellicosity. Apparently, the parents thought that the three boys could handle it, but that Shoshanna should be spared the preparation.
R39, Abbas has declared that Jews will not be allowed to live in Palestine if and when it becomes an independent state. Meanwhile in Israel, Arabs have equal civil rights; they can own real property, practice any profession, vote and hold office. Next door in Lebanon, Palestinians are forbidden to buy property and are unable to join several professions. Over in Egypt, Morsi has been caught on video praying for the death of Jews.
Now tell me again about which country harbors racist supremacists.
If you believe 'in Isreal, Arabs have equal civil rights' , you are delusional. Be real - don't be ass. They're are too many of them already in your persuasion.
[quote]If you believe 'in Isreal, Arabs have equal civil rights' , you are delusional.
If you believe Israel is the great evil in the middle east, you are delusional.
We are off the thread topic. Ari is well known to be psycho, as are most agents. Most agents are Jewish. Do the math. Jews = money hungry psychos.
Thanks for revealing your Jew-hating colors, r44/ r46. So-called anti-Zionists usually do, but rarely so quickly.
He's what my Grammy Hall would call "a real Jew!"
[RE47] I'm Jewish, you ass. And we are just what I said. I'm also gay. And I say things about us gays that are also considered generalizations , but true. Like we're self involved & superficial. Tell me I'm wrong - people don't like the truth.
Why are we even talking about a couple of Jews?
Are you a self-hating gay like you're a self-hating Jew?
I love being Jewish, I love being gay. But I don't drink the Kool-Aid for either, unlike you. There are plenty of dispicable Jews, there are plenty of dispicable
gays. And plenty of room for criticism for both. Again, be real, and deal with it.
r52 there are plenty of despicable Jews. You're one of them. Have you been to Israel you self-hating Jewish POS? Well?
If you're Jewish, why can't you spell Israel?
I have not been to Israel, though have many friends there, and plan to go soon. So I'm a POS ? Well at least I'm not like you , Zionist pig. I have also not been to Fire Island, Provincetown, or Palm Springs. Does that make me any less gay ? You're pathetic
Great logic: Ari Emanuel is a money-grubbing asshole. Therefore, all Jews are money-grubbing assholes.
I see r55 you haven't been to Israel but you KNOW FOR A FACT that Palestinians are treated badly according to your post at r44 - you are just a true SHJ - self-hating Jewish person POS, because I've been there and it's not true at all. There are Arabs everywhere.
How about in Arabic countries? Are even Atheists allowed? Or Jews? Or are Jews constantly on television and shown to "eat the blood of babies"? How about how gays are treated in the Arabic world? Kindly? Allowed to live? Well Mr. Know-It-All?
Oh, Jesus, we have a Jew-off going on ^^^
[quote] They are so insular, so immersed in their games, they couldn't function in any other "world."
They couldn't function becaus they'd be dead; the real world eats up and spits out bitches like them every day. Thy're only "powerful" in their teeny little Hollywood niche.
I doubt the fucker screaming "Zionist pig" is Jewish. He sounds like a delusional anti-Semite who thinks claiming Jewish ancestry will make his bigoted views seem less so.
Can someone explain to me how the Emmanuel kids all ended up like this? What was going on in that home?
Not even 10 posts and it's already Jew porn. SO predictable.
reptilians on the rox
Did this trolldar thing. The "gay/Jewish" is a very strange person. Either a troll anti-semite, or a "Man in the Glass Booth" type. Either way, whew! vicious and vituperative.
ari has many problems. many many. I don't think he should be pissing off people that know just how bad they are.
Well, this THREAD certainly brought out the psychos.
Zeke is just as horrible as his brothers.
r65 - problems beyond his mental health?? dish, please
[RE64] I am neither an anti-semite, or a 'Man in A Glass Booth' type. I am a 26 year old, gay, Jewish, college graduate, who is so tired of groups - among them, gays, and Jews, not accepting the damage they do, along with the good, and great deeds. In each case, we always seem to take the stance, that you cannot say anything bad about 'our' group - it can only be that we our wonderful, superior people - whether true, or not. AGAIN, there are some truly shameful gay people, they're are some truly shameful Jews. You really want to be Pollyanna, and deny that ? Like I said, be real. Ari E. Is a horrible example of a decent, good, human being. Period.
R69 I hear ya BUT what about the WASP establishment aren't they fucked up too? And rednecks and the like? What about the Germans starting two World Wars and their savagery during World War II? How about the fucking finger pointing at Greece, Spain, Italy,Portugal while exporting tons of goods to them.It's an international thing about hating Jews not just an American thing. So it's very widespread. However is that fair? Jews might be annoying but they have a lot of company in that department.
Love Ari! He da man!
Based on what, R67? I'm not an expert on the guy, but he was the smartest of the three. He beats the hell out of that nasty bitch Nancy Snyderman when he's on MSNBC. He comes off as thoughtful and knowledgeable, not someone who shoots from the hip. And when he had to correct Snyderman, he did it respectfully.
I had heard Shoshanna was adopted and is special needs.
He's a cut throat academic who steals others' ideas and claims them as his own. But lots of the top academics do this.
Jeremy Piven has said the real Ari is way more intense then the fictionalized Ari he played on Entourage.
These rich Hollywood power brokers act like little kids. "u r so poor u can't afford a coffee machine!" "i bought a airplane bitch!" So much power and wealth in so many little petty minds...
[RE66] What psychos ? Passionate, yes, and opinionated, but compared to the idiocy in some of the other threads, this wasn't bad. The title of the thread was about a particular man being 'psycho'.
More faulty logic: There are bad people who are gay and bad people who are Jewish so I can make generalizations about both groups.
Nothing excuses or justifies group libel.
Can we please talk about Ari v Irving and Shelli/crazy Emmanuel family/evil Hollywood moguls? Not interested in your tangents.
Azoff comes off relatively well in this exchange, given that he's a famously huge asshole with a decades long resume of assholery. Guess no one can compete with Ari Gold/Emmanuel.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
