  The news media is having such a difficult time confirming the situation with actress Natasha Richardson.

Now of course it is obvious that the  fame and notoriety of this actress is the only reason why the press is interested in this very unfortunate chain of events. Richardson was skiing a couple of days ago in Canada and suffered a terrible accident.  She was having a private lesson on a  beginner slope at Mont Tremblant resort outside of Montreal, Canada.  She fell on the slope but there was no blood and no immediate sign of injury. Two ski patrollers came to her rescue. When they got there she was conscious and even cracked a few jokes with them. 

An hour later, Natasha started to complain of a headache and said she didn’t feel well. Someone from the resort called 911, and she was taken to the hospital in an ambulance. Natasha was conscious when she left the resort. A couple hours later her condition worsened and she was flown from Canada to NYC on March 17. Her mother acclaimed actress Vanessa Redgrave and husband Liam Neeson came quickly to her side. 


My heart goes out to any story I come across that involves someone  (famous or not)  who has encountered senseless suffering and pain. I’m an emotional being like that. Natasha Richardson is only 45 years old. She is a wife, daughter, sister,  and the mother of two teenage boys. This situation must be overwhelmingly traumatic for them. I am sure it  has been elevated by the fact the press cannot get their facts straight and are prematurely printing headlines of her death. The press was all over this story when Natasha had her accident and immediately  several newspapers began to report that she had died.

Time Out New York, the NY Daily New, Fox News and the NY Post claim that she is brain dead, but TMZ has denied this. Time Out New York had gone as far as to print an obituary and had to retract it, because Natasha Richardson is not dead.


 Ms. Richardson has a publicist who I am sure is very capable of issuing a statement, so why the media can’t WAIT to receive word straight from Richardson’s camp is just unprofessional and a bit DESPERATE!! The media can’t be that hard up for a story that they are compelled to jump on this one like salivating wolves in the forest fighting for the last woodland creature .


Is it too much to ask to let this woman either have a miraculous change of events and heal from this freak accident or die in peace before  printing a story of her untimely demise?

The press just has NO SHAME in their game at all.

I most certainly to do not publish anything on this blog as fact until it has been confirmed by a reputable source. If  Nightly Candy can hold itself  to that code of conduct I would think that the corporate news media could get it together and do the same. 

More news soon my sweets.

A family representative for Liam Neeson just gave the press this statement:

Liam Neeson, his sons, and the entire family are shocked and devastated by the tragic death of their beloved Natasha,” Neeson rep Alan Nierob said in a statement. “They are profoundly grateful for the support, love and prayers of everyone, and ask for privacy during this very difficult time.”

How very sad. My prayers are with the family. I hope the press respects their right to mourn in privacy.
