For those that haven’t heard the wonderful news of the day, yes, I was sued back on Dec. 21st by the production company of the “Bachelor” series for ummmmm, well, I’m still trying to figure out what. The Hollywood Reporter covered it today, as well as EW.com. You can see in the Hollywood Reporter story that I give my response to this lawsuit.
Let me just say this: all the armchair lawyers out there can say what they want, but the truth is, the Settlement Agreement I have with NZK Productions is not public record. If you don’t know the exact wording in the Settlement Agreement, you can’t possibly have an accurate opinion on these new charges brought against me, so just keep that in mind before I’m vilified in the court of public opinion. The point of the Agreement, or so I thought, was to prevent this exact thing from happening. I didn’t want to have to respond to a lawsuit every single time I posted a spoiler on my site because NZK Productions THINKS I got my information illegally. But that’s exactly what they went ahead and did since they have shown me no proof that I violated the Agreement, because they have none.
I continue to spoil their show every season, they’re pissed about it, so this is how they respond. What’s funny in all this is, by suing me, they’re admitting that my spoilers are correct. Do you honestly think if I gave away the wrong ending, and wrong eliminations, and wrong details about the dates they would sue me? Of course not. I’d just be a gossip site and they’d never acknowledge my existence. So I guess props to me for, once again, another successful season of spoiling the “Bachelor” franchise. Although, I didn’t need a lawsuit thrown in my face four days before Christmas to know that my spoilers were right.
I’m exploring all my legal options at this point, including a counterclaim. They are the big guys and I’m the little one and they are trying to squash me. I don’t see that happening since I did not violate our Agreement, nor did I intentionally interfere with any contracts, which is what their latest complaint is stating.
Everything remains the same on the site. I’ll return Tuesday with your episode 1 recap and the spoilers remain up. The only spoilers I haven’t posted yet are episodes 6 and 7. Not too concerned about those right now so you can find all your spoilers by clicking this link, or by navigating at the top of the page by going to “Spoilers,” then “The Bachelor,” then “Bachelor Sean Spoilers.” It’s really easy for those who might be struggling a bit.
See you Tuesday.
