I have no idea why this randomly popped into my head but I digress... I remember a few years ago (I think around late season 5) there were these blinds dubbed 'bullygate' that suggested that C and L were trying to get D (and Naya) fired. Since we know there's elements of truth on the N side of things, I was wondering what theories you had about the D side of things. I definitely don't believe it but I also don't know what to make of it. Muchas gracias.
Anon, during that time, the public perception was that D&C hated each other. Which was a result of them going from best friends on set to never associating with each other outside of work. And Fox saw this as a way to divert attention from their relationship that was considered to be so taboo.
So what better way to do that than to plant a blind that was partially steeped in fact? Everyone knew that L&N were fighting and there were strong rumors that L was trying to have her fired. So why not throw D into the mix? It gives it an added weight when there is some semblance of truth in the story. And once again C stans in particular could riot as it added fuel to their need for C to hate D.
Blinds don’t have to be true. They are items that are submitted to the website. Sometimes by the actors themselves. Sometimes by fans. Sometimes by beards. Sometimes by PR. and Sometimes by major studios. It is an excellent way to start rumors.
