Title: What's it to ya, Jane Seymour?
Post by: Carnation on May 20, 2011, 12:36:51 PM
As much as we are all politely ignoring the Arnold/Maria topic, Jane Seymour certainly has weighed in.

Really, what business is it of hers? ???   She's not a party to this. >:(

No one else is a party to this, other than the family. That doesn't mean celebrities aren't going to weigh in or have an opinion. I think her spreading gossip is out of line. I also don't see this as any different than the opinions celebrities give about anyone else, like about Charlie Sheen or Mel Gibson's behavior.

In all honesty, if you know that a guy cheats, you can't be shocked that there's a possibility he had some kids outside of the marriage.  It's not a great strech to assume when he has one that there could be more.  I think that when you're a celebrity you do open yourself up to gossip and commentary by the public & other celebrities.  This is no different.  I am a bit dissapointed in Jane though - she didn't need to go there.

But she's speculating, not offering an opinion.

Well, technically, she's not speculating. She claims to have inside information about two other children. Again, not classy. I just don't think this is any more egregious than anything other people say when asked about scandals.

Um, just how do we know for certain that she's NOT a party to this?  For all we know, she could well be a very, very involved party.  One week ago, we'd be saying exactly the same thing about his "housekeeper."

Any opinion I had about Jane Seymour would just be negative at this point. 

She needs to shut her mouth unless she has factual evidence to "report".

From what Jane said in that interview:

Quote
"From what I gather, I think there will be lots of information coming people's way," Seymour said. "I heard about two more [children] somebody else knows about. I even met someone who knows him well."

That doesn't sound to me like she's involved, or even that she knows Arnold.  It sounds more to me like she's repeating what someone else told her.

Even if she DOES have solid proof of something she's not a reporter and the only way it's actually "news" is if his affairs affected the State of California.  Otherwise it's gossip.

If he & his family issue statements to the press about it, it becomes news.

Did Jane Seymour recently become a Kennedy?  I must have missed that.

That's a rather limited definition of news, don't you think? Politics and state affairs are not the only things considered news. Especially in this case - as both members of the couple would be considered celebrities.

Does Arnold's affair and child with the housekeeper affect the state of California? I don't think so, but I see a lot of news coverage anyway. Are you saying that is also not news?

News really is defined by what people want to know, what people will read and watch. Of course, it is nice or morality driven to say peoples' personal lives as news is "gossip" but when they are famous, it becomes news.

What do you expect it's Hollywood and people (especially other celebrities) will talk. I tend to agree with her but then I'm not famous so nobody cares what I think.

I'm just not surprised any more that celebrities will gossip about each other. I don't know why anyone else is either.

Blah, she is just trying to make some news about herself. After all, most will ask "Jane who?" She is tacky.

I think lots of people still know who she is. Her TV series Dr. Quinn: Medicine Woman is still being rerun on cable and satellite TV stations. It's just gossip and not worth getting too upset over in my opinion. Schwarzenegger made his bed so now he'll have to lie in it.

Not germane to the topic, but I met Jane way back in the late 70s when she was in N. MI making that movie with Christopher Reeves. Have her autograph.  :)

She was pretty snooty until I said I didn't know who she was (I was used to super-snooty resorters, so she was nothing new).

She may be right, and presumably she was asked about AS by an interviewer. In any case, I don't think it makes much difference.

@Jaxsue:
I live in Michigan and Mackinac Island still raves about "Somewhere in Time." I was there last summer (my favorite place on earth.) Watched the movie again after I came back and I must say, IMHO, the movie did not age well. Horrible acting (especially Reeve), really stupid plot (not really time travel but self hypnosis).
While Jane Seymour is a beautiful woman, she does strike me as very self-absorbed.
Loved your anecdote.

I saw it again a couple of years ago and I agree, it didn't age well. Jane bought an antique pocketwatch for Christopher while in the shop and I think he may have worn it in the movie (the shop was in the "gaslight," or tourist ("fudgie") district, which caters to wealthy resorters). She had 4 huge bodyguards with her, but being used to dealing with SSs I didn't give her special treatment. She did thaw a bit when I didn't fawn all over her.

I miss N. MI. I live in NJ now so it's quite a distance. There's still a Michigan girl somewhere inside me!  :)
