We were the first to mention the "mystery," but after powerful Gawker picked up the story, the Net is buzzing about why the corporate porn-pushing gossip site TMZ.com has virtually ignored the summer's biggest Hollywood story-- Owen Wilson's attempted suicide-- while aggressively battering every celebrity in sight in hopes of drumming up attention to its upcoming, internally-troubled syndicated television show.
Harvey has allegedly gone on the radio to say that he and the boys have downplayed the story out of respect for Owen's privacy.
Blechhhhhhhhh!!!!! Sorry. We just threw up on our laptop.
Give us an effin' break!
Some say it's more likely sour grapes, since Harvey missed out on the big story despite all the law enforcmeent palms he greases all across Hollywood's Twink Male Zone. But it doesn't take much digging to figure out a more logical reason. In fact, one need only kick at the top layer of dirt covering TMZ to see that Owen's new movie, The Darjeeling Limited, opens later this month. No, its not an AOL/Warner production, but comes from Fox Searchlight.
Fox, of course, is syndicating the internally-troubled TMZ TV series.
Brave move, Harvey.
And remember! Only 10 Harveys til the big TMZ TV debut!
