  1. It will be hard to believe that this site will ever again be what it was. After so long a time she is for sure going to be doing something else. Hope she is well, she puts a lot of stress on herself.

  2. Nikki Finke is not posting articles and Charles Manson is getting married. Nothing is right in the universe. I fear the end is near.

  3. Nikki? NIKKEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! Where art thou? The barbarians are at the gate! We grow weary of McD’s. We long for the filet mignon!!!! Where ART thou!? (Sigh)

  4. Hah!! So sometime in the next ten weeks we shall have an answer? Looking forward to your return. Hollywood hype-sters beware!! The hoofbeats bearing painful truth draweth nigh. Hearken…and know fear.

  5. Your post rules say dont go personal, that made your comment section the best around. From your post and the comment section a person could get caught up with 30 yrs worth of the whole story.

  6. Nikki, thank you for broadcasting the deplorable conditions and idiotic decisions made by Suzanne Kolb during her run at E! Today SK was shown the door before her contract ended only because you put a spot light to the situation. As an E! employee you became our hero and our voice. Hail Nikki! Come back soon.

  7. Nikki, I still have you bookmarked and check in almost every day. Come back, there’s nothing and no one like you online. No one else even comes close to your chutzpah. I know that I’m one of many, many readers who want you back!

  8. Sure wish you would come back, Nikki. I don’t care how much they’re paying you to stay away. What I miss about you is (1) The snark. You called the BS as you saw it instead of sucking up to Hollywood and (2) You tolerated a divergence of opinion. You let people attacking you do so. Please come back!

  9. Sheesh! Just get yourself a Front! You keep getting tips because your contacts know you, and the snark comes out of someone else’s mouth.

  10. Has it already been determined that Nikki won’t be allowed to continue in her traditional capacity? That would be a shame. She’s the only one telling the whole truth.

  11. Nikki, could you use a hand during this transition? I’m available if any assistance could be utilized. Needing your voice in the datasphere-wanting to help. Seriously.

  12. Nikki, you’re always so blunt. I guess the industry bigwigs read your blog and decided to make death threats to you. Don’t feel bad. The sky’s the limit.

  13. i feel so bad things have turned out this way…we have this amazing woman who has done so much for all of us and made hollywood a better place by her reporting…now being silent…well i am rooting for our Nikki to come back stronger than ever…in whatever capacity she chooses…i have followed this oh so interesting lady for a long time and she always had my rapt attention, admiration and kept me informed and amused. good luck, lots of fans waiting to support you!

  14. Talk about sinking to the bottom of the barrel to try to silence you. Hope it doesn’t work. Your loyal readers only care that you are the best damn entertainment journalist around. Stalking you was a low rent move by people who are too weak and afraid to stand toe-to-toe with you. Don’t let them win.

  15. Hey Nikks! I’m from the heartland/flyover part that usually gets ignored. Just lettin’ you know —— Here in the hinterland we miss reading your work. Hope everything works out for you, Stay strong. We are waiting for your next big thing.

  16. Talk about censoring and only showing one side of the story, these comments sure whitewash some of your really hurtful remarks Stay Away

  17. Wherever you are, you’ll always have a reader in me, Nikki. Stay strong! Joan did it, you can too! Can’t wait to see you back. -_-

  18. Without Nikki we don’t get the rest of the story. Everyone else may only report the end result, but only Nikki tells us why it came to be. She’s earned every ‘Told’ja!" she’s posted. I can’t wait to see what is up next for one of the best writers online.

  19. You’re like that first cup of coffee in the morning. If it’s not there the rest of the day is all downhill. Looking forward here in K.C. to your speedy return!

  20. Hey, I like compelling dialogue as much as the next guy or gal, so if a few people have to get destroyed along the way for that to happen, them’s the breaks because, as far as I’m concerned, reading NikkiFinke.com is a right that’s damn right.

  21. I’ve been following the narrative through other "news" outlets and let’s just say I’m skeptical about *how* it’s being reported. "Violation of a non-compete agreement"…?Riiiiight. And I have an ice vending franchises for sale in Siberia. – - – Okay…yeah…I have no doubt that’s what the Penske shysters are claiming, thereby rendering it immediately suspect. – - – So I *am* staying tuned…especially now that the rumor (I refuse to call it "news") is reporting that you may be going *back* to the dark side?!? Again…*rumor*. And I think I smell a Penske plant somewhere in that claim. – - – So you obviously have much to think about, but just know that we’re here with ya. An appropriate Dave-ism here might be: "I’m a rebel…you’re a rebel…what the hell, let’s rebel!"

  22. I’ve been so busy the last few weeks. Just found out the site was down. Hoping to see you back in some form again Nikki.. We girls have to stick together.. After all we rule the fucking world so we have to keep things together. Keep your self respect. It is worth more than any thing.

  23. Glad you’re okay. We were concerned, but we knew you would rise again, like the journalistic phoenix you are. You’ll always have an audience anxiously awaiting our next incarnation.

    1. You are right and the bastards are wrong. Never forget it. Don’t worry, we’ll be here waiting for you. Nikki stand strong.

  24. Stay in LA, your site was Made in LA, #TeamNikkiFinke. And. Stinks and stones won’t break your bones, but when you break the story of who posted the content on Hostgator… Oh snap… Go Nikki.

  25. I cannot wait for your good news, Nikki. I’ve been checking your website, NYT to see how you are and where since last week. At the risk of sounding clichèd – know that you are a beacon – not just of knowledge, fight and journalistic craft but of integrity, grit and passion. Editor and critic, Clifton Fadiman (1904- 1999) said something about reading classics that is germaine to your style: "…you don’t see more in the book than you did before, you see more in yourself than there was before…" Your writing refracts that kind of light and insight, Nikki. With only good, good wishes for what is next. Mar Sulaika Ochs: The Story Goddess

  26. You are the best. I wish there were some way for you to publish on line within Drudge’s page. Anyway, best wishes and good luck.

  27. Just discovered NikkiFinke. I am very interested in truth being told. Hope she goes to DC and writes about the corruption, lies, and coverups. I am fed up with powerful men and women abusing that power and pretending to care. Find the truth wherever it lies. I am a future supporter and watch for your posts.

  28. I’ve learned to be very patient when it comes to Nikki! She’s well worth the wait. Looking forward to her future plans, whatever they may be!

Commenting at NikkiFinke.com is a privilege, not a right.

The goal is to stimulate a compelling dialogue, not destroy people. Stick to the professional and stay away from the personal and above all don’t bore me.
