Dlisted: The Today Show Boycott

The Today Show Boycott



Stephen Huvane is publicist to stars like Fishsticks Paltrow, Demi Moore, Kiki Dunst and more importantly Jennifer Aniston. He has apparently told the producers of The Today Show that he is boycotting their show and not allowing any of his clients to appear. Why? He is fighting mad that they had Us Weekly EIC, Janice Min, on the show selling a story that Vince Vaughn proposed to Jennifer in Mexico. Stephen has branded the story a total falsity.

It's also expected Huvane will hand his clients over to dreaded ABC competitor "Good Morning America." His entire firm, powerful PMKHBH, may follow suit, which would mean a serious scarcity of stars on "Today."

"The timing couldn't be worse," an insider says. "September is when the ratings war traditionally heats up, and Huvane's clients have some big movies coming out."

"GMA" producers are said to be giggling with glee. One staffer even called Huvane to make sure he saw the Curry-Min chitchat. "Today" spokeswoman Lauren Kapp says she wasn't aware of any plans to withhold talent, but, "There's no way. [Huvane] cannot afford to put his clients on a competitor that gets considerably less viewers."

"GMA" rep Bridgette Maney bristles: "We've launched more than half of this year's top-10 albums and movies, and 'GMA' continues to be the place where the biggest celebrities visit."

Meanwhile, Min stands by her cover story, which screams, "Vince Proposes! A nervous Vaughn surprises Jen with a ring bigger than Brad's." She's tweaking Huvane by publishing a list of celeb stories he's lied about to reporters in the past. Huvane did not respond to our e-mails.


Oh please. I'm so sick of these stars whining. It's publicity, Jesus! And if the story is false than who cares. He should suck this shit up while it lasts, because Jennifer's career is headed straight for a Vh1 reality show.
