The Grand Delusion

It doesn't bother me that much that Keith bashes BillO, but I'm not so sure Keith can see that those two are just alike. However, Keith is much more obsessed with BillO than BillO is with Keith.
If 250 million Americans don't know who the hell BillO is then that means 251 don't know who the hell Keith is. Which means, their ratings don't even account for a decent percentage of the population.
They both have an ego the size of the population but it's not warranted. They have no reason to be so arrogant and egotistical, but yet they are. Why do you suppose that "news" people are so high on themselves, especially when the majority of the population don't give a damn about cable news?

And though it was nice to hear Keith give a shout out to Southern Californians because of the earthquake, it's guaranteed that 90% of those people didn't even hear it.
He did that for his own purpose because he has this delusion that he's much bigger than what he really is.
The majority of his viewers are east of the Mississippi so just about anything he says about California is pretty much a waste of air.
It's all for himself just as what BillO does or says is all for himself.

And on a different subject. One of the reasons I don't like bonehead is because she's a disgrace to the female gender. Decent women who work their asses off just to get ahead would never stoop as low as this child has. Or any of the females that use sex to get what they want.
It's because of them that women's rights will never be taken seriously.

Keith is delusional to think that the world revolves around him and bonehead is delusional to think that Keith is going to let her rise above him in any field of endeavors.

I don't know anything about bonehead's mom, but her father, Robert, I believe is an honorable, hard working man. I'm betting the wife is likewise honorable and hard working, because they worked together often, and Robert Tur does not look like the type of guy who would marry and put up with a skanky ho' for more than 20 years. They did not divorce until Katy was 20, and that was over the physical, mental and financial strain caused by Robert's years of ongoing lawsuits over copyright violation. My point is that two honorable and hard working people did not raise another skanky ho'. If that's what she is now, it happened during college.

"They both have an ego the size of the population but it's not warranted. They have no reason to be so arrogant and egotistical, but yet they are."

Of course they are, or we wouldn't watch them. They won't slow down until they're too old to do it anymore. Or publically disgraced in such a way that they had to stay out of sight for a long time, whichever comes first.

Keith once said that his "ego is firing on all cylinders", like it was a well-oiled machine that he couldn't shut off. The arrogance comes from not wanting to shut it off.

"...females that use sex to get what they want."

How do you know it wasn't the other way around? That Keith used the promise of an exciting life in a big city, with a deeeluxe apartment in the sky, and a little help to a get a foot in the door, to get what HE wanted?

"Keith is delusional to think that the world revolves around him..."

He knows the world doesn't revolve around him. HIS world revolves around him, and he is inviting us to watch him at how great he is in his world. I'm still enjoying it.

"...and bonehead is delusional to think that Keith is going to let her rise above him in any field of endeavors."

I think you are attaching more malevolence to both of them than they deserve. Keith does not have to "keep her down". I don't think he has any intention of competing with her. And why would he have to? She's not that good, and she doesn't have the voice for an anchor spot. If she ever makes it big in front of the camera, it will be long after Keith is too old to be in front of one any longer.

When this gig is up in 2011, Keith should go back to writing and radio. Katy should get back behind the camera. I give their fling two more years. She'll either have the kids like they say, or she's outta there.

Very good.

The only things I disagree a little bit with is this:
Mr. Tur got himself a nice little spot with MSNBC shortly after Keith and bonehead got together.
That to me is not honorable.
Now, I don't know if he still has that spot or not.

Also, I don't believe he's trying to compete with her at all. I think he has an agenda with this child and it has nothing to do with love.
He's keeping her "down" in order to get what he wants, which I agree with your assessment that it could be his unfulfilled promises, and he knows she's not that good at what she's doing.
She's simply there for his purpose not hers. That's why I stated that she's delusional if she thinks it's anything other than that.
He's going to control that relationship one way or another. Which means he's not going to let her rise above anything other than what she is now.
Maybe I should've said "anything" instead of "him", but anything and everything he does is something she's connected with and you can just about bet she's tried to get further than where she is with his help.
So, yeah, I believe there is a malevolent situation here.

She took up with him way too quickly. Older guys who take in such young girls do this because they know they can manipulate and mold them into something they want.
And I believe she thought she was going to get more than what she's gotten so far.
I also don't think it's going to last two more years. If it does then he's a fool for wasting such precious time on something he ain't getting. Especially when he spends 90% of his time away from her.

His behavior is not that of a man who is looking to have a child- as he proclaimed in an article not long after shacking up with Ms. Tur. She's very much into her career at the moment and an ambitious girl like that will stop at nothing until she concurs the world. Let's say she is ready for a family at 30... he will be in his mid-fifties by then. Tired and grumpIER.

flowergirl said...

Oh, she's not gonna be around that long.

And yep, it's his behavior. He still plays like someone who isn't ready to settle down.
I think he enjoys his freedom too much.

He doesn't have a spot, he's contracted to do so many shows per year. I've only seen one and I thought it was pretty good. Like World's Wildest Police videos. I like those.

Keith probably put in a good word for his old friend, but if they didn't like his material, they would've turned it down. That's one of the ways people in this business get work, you know. Through their contacts. I don't see anything dishonorable about Mr. Tur selling his show to MSNBC, whether Keith put a word in for him or not. The network did not develop a show and offer it to Mr. Tur to take control of. He made the show and offered it to them. They accepted. He may have offered it to other cable outlets, but got the best deal from MSNBC. They, of course, have more money to offer than Spike, FX, and G4.

He's going to control that relationship one way or another.

If he has any ideas about doing that, he'll have to spend more than 10% of his time with her.

he's not going to let her rise above anything other than what she is now.

That is entirely up to her now, Flowergirl. Keith may have gotten someone there who owed him a favor to give her a try, but he has no control over decisions made by CW11 over what assignments she gets or how much she works. She's on her own in that area now, and what ever happens to her from here on out is her own responsibility and through her own merits. And if Keith had used any sort of intimidation or bullying to secure her that position, some pissed off employee who doesn't like Keith Olbermann would have leaked it. That's a given, I think. More likely he had someone at MSNBC go to bat for her, so he would not be connected that closely with it.

No, she's not that good right now, but she's not horrible either. She's actually a lot better looking than Allison Hanns, that woman with all the teeth and Patricia Del Rio with those hugely arched eyebrows. So that's a plus. But she doesn't have their "presence".

That's why I said I'd give it a couple of years, because I figure that's how long it'll take for her to see if she's going to ever be anything more than a street reporter, or is there a possibility of being an anchor at some local news station. If not, she'll either settle down and pop out a couple of kids, or she'll go back to CA.

...you can just about bet she's tried to get further than where she is with his help.

Might be, but there's a line there that she should not cross, and he shouldn't let her. And we don't know that she tried. 'Crossing the line' as in Keith getting her a job on his production team. Or getting her a job anywhere at MSNBC. But getting her a job as a minor reporter at a Warner Bros. station? Ok. She has no right to expect anything better than that at her level of experience.

Luxury apartment in a prestigious building? Check. Gold credit card for plenty of NY shopping sprees? Well, judging by that atrocious purple top with the frills she was wearing the other day, she hasn't been out shopping for clothes. Her wardrobe is awful.

If Keith promised her any more than that, he was wrong. He can't deliver any more than that, and he shouldn't try, IMO. That right there goes along with what I said earlier about guarding his reputation. But we don't know for sure what he promised her, do we?

I think he does want kids though, for purely selfish reasons. He's arrogant enough to think he can live on through his kids and the world shouldn't be deprived of the great Olbermann line. He'd better hurry up, though, before his sperm gets too moldy.

for not so anon: honey, she was sitting around knitting for a year and a half before he wrangled that tv job for her..ambitious my behind. And about the Tur's..Mrs. still works, and has some respect in H'wood (trust me on this), Mr. doesn't..he's like KO in many ways..always thinks he's right, even when the facts prove otherwise.

I don't think she's very ambitious either. If she was she would work more than what she's doing and she would dress appropriately.
As Marinara said, her clothes are awful.
