Newton-John heads to prime time


Our coverage of the mysterious disappearance of Olivia Newton-John's alleged boyfriend, Patrick McDermott, has gotten international attention—and stirred up rival factions in various Olivia Newton-John fan clubs, which, for some reason, are using our comment sections to duke it out. It’s bizarre, it’s wild, it's totally off point-- and fascinating. For accusations of perversions, molestions and stalkings and more— click here or here, or pick any Olivia Newton-John story, and look at the comments. There are hundreds. Now to the latest:

Shiva and memorials are officially history, now that Olivia Newton-John, star of the 1978 blockbuster movie Grease, will be hiotting prime time as guest-star in of NBC's Grease Broadway talent search. Olivia, who's spent much of the past year spinning the mysterious disappearance (and subsequent sightings) of her alleged boyfriend into fodder for an album and concert act, will provide "commentary" for the first two episodes of Grease: You're The One that I Want, which premieres January 7th.

In a shocking parallel to another popular talent show on the Fox network (whose new season premieres nine days later and in which Newton-John will show up as a celebrity judge), the initial episodes will focus on auditions around the country, leading to audience votes that will choose the actors to play Sandy and Danny in a Broadway revival (the idea was used successfully in the UK to choose West End leads for The Sound of Music; next they're doing Joseph and The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat-- doesn't that sound like a winner...)

Newton-John, who successfully slipped out of scandal regarding her behaviour during the first seven weeks her supposed lover, Patrick McDermott, was missing from a fishing boat expedition last year, seems to have a love-hate relationship with the musical. Earlier this month, she sued the Universal Music Group, claiming she's been cheated out of more than a million dollars in royalties from the Grease movie soundtrack.

There's been no indication that her Grease movie co-star, John Travolta, will be involved in the NBC show, but considering that he recently completed his cross-dressing role as Edna Turnblad in the movie version of Broadway's Hairspray, it's a distinct possibility. Him or Didi Conn.

Is Olivia Newton-John supposed to stop living her life? Would that make you happy? Jesus.

Secondly, Kate being here is actually an asset to the fan club because she is a lot closer to Olivia and her management where the real decisions are made as to who gets what. It is much easier for Kate to talk or meet with Olivia or her management living 25 miles away from Olivia than living 3000 miles away as she does now."Bill D'amato

You F&A trolls constantly say I'm wrong about calling Kate a stalker.First she admits to following Olivia's tourbus.Then she admits to hanging around the stage door of the today show waiting for her..Now the above quote which was lifted right from the F&A site says she is going to be 25 miles from where Olivia is living.

Stop living in denial trolls.These are actions of a stalker.End of story.

Du använder uttrycka ”fiska med drag i” som definierade är mycket i det svenska språket och mythologyen. Fyndet någon i OO-klubban, som vet det svenskt, eller det Skandinavien språket eller historia därefter har du denna kända idiots.
Translated: You use the word "troll" which defined is very much in the Swedish language and mythology. Find someone in the OO club who knows the Swedish or Scandinavia language or history then you have this idiot's name.

Interesting. Has any of you ever followed Olivia's tour bus because both of you were going in the same direction at the same time? Did she follow it for 100 miles or a couple of minutes? Is everyone that follows her tour bus a stalker or is this name only given to Kate?

How many other "fans" including some from OO were also at that stage door at the Today Show? Was she there alone? Are they not stalkers too?

She is moving 25 miles from Olivia? Oh my God, does that mean the other 3 million people who live there also moved there to stalk Olivia? How many OO members live in or near where she lives? Are they there to be stalkers too or again is it just Kate who is a stalker?

Better yet, is everyone who knows Olivia or is an aquaintance of hers only there to be a stalker or it is just Kate?

I hear the OO management attends EVERY Olivia event ANYWHERE in the country. Isn't that a sign of what a stalker would do? Is Kate at EVERY EVENT?

I also notice that the quote you lifted from the site starts with "Secondly." Where is the first part or are you only quoting things you want people to see instead of the entire story?

Most importantly, isn't all this crap on this blog supposed to be about Olivia? How come no one is defending Olivia? Isn't she the one who should be supported?

I am wondering just who the trolls actually are here.
