Nick Nolte’s Blog
Here's yet another possible faux celebrity blog. This time it's the blog of Nick Nolte. It's probably becoming a sign of status in Hollywood to have a faux blog... it shows that someone out there cares enough about you to want to pretend to be you. Imagine all the forgotten stars waiting desperately for someone to create a fake blog about them. Maybe they eventually break down and pay someone to pretend to be them... which would make it a faux faux celebrity blog. Lost in Technophilia argues that the reason to believe the Nick Nolte blog isn't real is because the domain name is registered to someone called "Christian Newton" living at 501 Privacy Lane, Santa Monica, CA 90402. Obviously a fake address. Or maybe Nick Nolte just didn't want to give out his real address.

The blog is at least cute. I mean if you came across it somehow and it didn't have anyone's name on it...

I like the pictures.

Nolte Bans Online Diary

Hollywood star Nick Nolte has taken legal action against the makers of a website which purports to be the actor's official online diary. The Prince Of Tides star has sent aspiring screenwriters Christian Newton and Casey McAdams a cease-and-desist order after their libelous entries on NickNolteDiary.Com led journalists to believe he and actress Rosanna Arquette had a car crash, and illustrated the story with Nolte's mug shot from his 2002 drunken-driving arrest. Nolte's spokesman Arnold Robinson says, "We have no affiliation with it in any way." Newton counters, "We always thought it was absurd enough and strange enough that it would be apparent to anyone who read it that it was parody. We always hoped it was in good fun. Maybe his real life is more genteel than that. I don't want to anger Nolte or his people."
