Wow. Lost fans are everywhere.
Our exclusive item on Evangeline Lilly’s appearance over the weekend at the Sci Fi Summit in Pasadena has drawn great attention, thousands of hits— and some ire from fans of the TV show Lost, who accuse Tabloid Baby of trashing the show and their star:
“These Tabloid writers are so mean…"
"This guy seems like a major douche-bag..."
"Tabloid writers are just dirty scavengers. They are something like prostitutes, if not worse. They would do anything for money. So don't mind their articles, don't read them and don't post links anywhere. Just ignore them…"
And there’s plenty more at the fab fan site 4815162342.com.
Not so! We love Lost almost as much as we love American Idol. Of course, we address the issues that are in the media. And for the millions of Lost fans, “tabloid” is a good thing, because no other “mainstream" news outlet paid to get in and get those great comments from Evangeline!
Doug Bruckner, the Tabloid Baby cohort and legendary tabloid reporter, producer, writer and voice brought us the exclusive report. He, too, is a bit unsettled by the reaction of fans (and counts himself as one), and issued this statement:
“I was as impressed by the way Evangeline handled the questions as I am with her outstanding portrayal of Kate on Lost. I had also read the scurrilous tabloid speculation about a possible pregnancy. But that is her own business. She looked absolutely stunning-- and downright elegant-- in the purple dress.”
So yes, this was a tabloid tribute. ( And we stand corrected-- apparently Evangeline hails from Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta, Canada, not Saskatchewan province.)
Meanwhile, in respect to the millions of Lost fans out there, we’ve got an extra treat. We found a site that has some lovely unclothed photos of Evangeline’s costar on Lost, Emilie de Ravin.
Evangeline might not be pregnant in real life, but Emilie’s character, Claire, was pregnant on the show for a time.
