[Blind Gossip] This story involves one wedding and two families. Let’s call them Big Family and Small Family.
Actress Small’s relatives are are seething today over Actress’ influence on the media. They say that she is seriously damaging their entire family.
[The Smalls] were all set to make some money by doing commentary on her and the wedding. However, a liaison for [Big Family] called in a favor to keep them off the air! (Actually, it might have been more of a threat than a favor.) Basically, their liaison told the program that if they put any of [Small’s] relatives on air, [Big Family] would consider it a “grievous breach of decorum” and would cut off the program and possibly the network from future access to Actress Small and the entire [Big Family].
The program and the network panicked. It only took about an hour for them to capitulate and cancel on [The Smalls]. [The Smalls ] did put up an enormous fuss about it. They were going on about [Actress] and [The Bigs] and how everyone was conspiring to hurt their family.
Fuss all you like, Smalls! You are not going to mess with The Bigs OR Actress Small’s “big day”!
