I’m wondering if the next big People story might be an exclusive interview with Louis denying the entire pregnancy farce. Louis can issue a firm, no beating around the bush denial (using the excuse of needing to talk to his lawyers/ get all his ducks in a row in regards to taking a paternity test to 100% confirm the kid isn’t his before publicly denouncing it [As many have mentioned, even if Louis knows there’s no possibility the kid is his, he’d have to take a paternity test anyhow just to confirm it without a shadow of a doubt (otherwise it’s a his word against hers situation)] and People don’t lose their credibility because Louis (and by extension, 1dhq) is still aligned with them and giving them the goods.
The story generated so much buzz that a direct denial from Louis in the form of a cover story would give them TONS of hits (and sell more hard copies) and it would makes sure ABSOLUTELY EVERYONE sees it (and therefore build Louis’ face recognition amongst the general public ESPECIALLY in North America). As has been pointed out before, People magazine is impossible to escape - It’s in every grocery store, every pharmacy, every doctor’s office, every nail salon. It would be an incredibly effective way to boost his ~star level~ even further without actually having to resort to expanding this stunt/creating a new one. Plus, since they’re working together, they both control the angle of the story in a way that suits their needs (and the level of larry they want to include).
I can absolutely see People being willing to publish something they know is false and will be publicly refuted in exchange for Louis giving them the denial interview (they can phrase the whole story so it casts them in a good light and maintains their reputation). If we’re right, they also know they’re getting the exclusive coming out story down the line which any publication would kill for. It’s going to be one of, if not the biggest, story of the year.
It’s all about barters and exchanges, and if they choose to go this route this only one who loses is Briana (and her fame hungry family - but they get money, connections and their 15 minutes).
I think the introduction of her ex-boyfriend will most likely play a role too. I still don’t think there actually *is* a baby, but for the sake of the story they can claim it’s his. From that point on it’s up to her what lengths she’s willing to go to (if, of course, anyone still cares. It might just be forgotten and she go on with her life as per usual, fake baby all but forgotten by everyone).
Britain is 'world's most corrupt country', says Italian mafia expert
Claims: Roberto Saviano said Britain was the world’s most corrupt country at the Hay Literary Festival Getty Images/David Levenson Britain has been described as the most corrupt country in the world, according to a journalist and expert on the Italian Mafia.
Roberto Saviano, who wrote best-selling exposés Gomorrah and ZeroZeroZero, made the claim at the Hay Literary Festival.
The 36-year-old has been living under police protection for 10 years
since revelations were published about members of the Camorra, a
Neapolitan branch of the mafia.
Mr Saviano told the audience at Hay-on-Wye: “If I asked you what is
the most corrupt place on Earth you might tell me well it’s Afghanistan,
maybe Greece, Nigeria, the South of Italy and I will tell you it’s the
“It’s not the bureaucracy, it’s not the police, it’s not the politics
but what is corrupt is the financial capital. 90 per cent of the owners
of capital in London have their headquarters offshore.
“Jersey and the Cayman’s are the access gates to criminal capital in Europe and the UK is the country that allows it.
“That is why it is important why it is so crucial for me to be here
today and to talk to you because I want to tell you, this is about you,
this is about your life, this is about your government.”
Prime Minister David Cameron came under pressure for the UK to reform
offshore tax havens operating on British overseas territories at an
anti-corruption summit earlier this month.
Mr Saviano also weighed in on the EU referendum debate, warning a
vote to leave the union would see Britain even more exposed to organised
He added: “Leaving the EU means allowing this to take place. It means
allowing the Qatari societies, the Mexican cartels, the Russian Mafia
to gain even more power and HSBC has paid £2 billion Euros in fines to
the US government, because it confessed that it had laundered money
coming from the cartels and the Iranian companies.
Well the time finally came: City of Heavenly Fire comes out THIS MONTH!
*nephilim cheering in the distance* *gather their seraph blades*
So yeah, I’m really excited for this book and I can’t wait for May 27th! but as much as I like books and all the excitement that comes with them, I really hate spoilers. Since I hate them and I’m sure some of you do, I can tell you that from the moment I start reading, every post I write about City of Heavenly Fire will be under read more and tagged with “CoHF spoilers" If only I just might tag the chapter I’m in so if you have already read it, you can see what I posted. I won’t post spoilers, edits, gifs, ANYTHING at all that won’t be under read more or tagged. About the edits and gifs I won’t post any until months after the book is published. It worked for me with Clockwork Princess and I hope it works with this book. When some time passes of course I will cry about all the deaths and massive destruction publicly so we can suffer together, but before that no, don’t worry.
I hope that you, like me, enjoy this book and don’t cry too much! Brace yourselves, City of Heavenly Fire is coming.
