More of Roger Friedman's PERSONAL emails

This is getting pretty bad. Apparently, he's going to different websites and theatening to sue people for posting these. The funniest part of all: he still actually has a job at Fox News.

Subject: Mel Gibson

Roger,

I’m sure you now heard about the Mel Gibson affair I can imagine how many emails that you have received about this given that you hate him so much. I never cared for him but did he turn you down for an interview or something? Lol!

I want to say what a pleasure it was meeting you last week. I can’t get over the story you told me about Waxman and the NYT “intern.” That is hilarious and I think she should be fired. I’m dying to hear the thing about Poland. I can honestly say that David comes off as a prick and has no right to constantly spew venom towards you. But back to Mel? You think he’s over with?

Jeff-

I’m actually happy he got caught; this gives me a lot of material for my column! Let me explain that I never hated Mel until he had that falling out with Harvey. He was just such an idiot about the whole thing and when I tried to ask Mel about it in an interview – very nicely, I may add – he was extremely rude and defensive. When I did that article about The Passion only opening in select theaters – you know, the one that almost got me fired – Mel got all these Christian groups out after me who sent anti-Semitic propaganda. It was pretty sick and disturbing but – then again – not surprising coming from Christians who are just about as crazy as Scientologists. I am proud to say that Mel is pretty much finished. After all, nobody really cares to see Apoccolipso (or whatever it’s called) except militant Latinos.

Jeff, would you like to go out for dinner with me sometime this week. I know a lot of good restaurants around the Upper East Side and we can talk some more.

I will ONLY go out with you if you tell me why Poland was fired from Entertainment Weekly.

Well, you are more curious about David Poland than me – perhaps you guys should go out instead! <jk>. Well, let’s put it this way: David wasn’t fired because of his awful writing – though he should have been. Apparently, David had an addiction to “spankin’ the ham” in the bathroom. One day, Owen Gleiberman caught him and let’s just say that Mr. Poland invited Owen to the party and he refused. Owen was pretty offended. After Poland was escorted out of the building a week later, the IT dept. found a lot of pictures on his computer – you know, ones with naked men– and let’s just say that Mr. Poland has a thing for young black men.

Roger,

I am peeing in my pants as I read your email. David Poland-no way! I don’t believe you. Isn’t he married. Okay, you win. How does Wednesday evening sound? I’ll give you a call a little bit later.

Subject: This Morning

Jeff-

I am really sorry about sounding like such an idiot on the phone this morning. I had a really bad experience at the Toronto Film Festival when security guards got rough on my friend from the Daily Mail and I for – get this – using a tape recorder for a backup on note-taking. I mean – come on – that’s what reporters do, right? Perhaps Canadians are the biggest idiots in this world besides the British. It’s also the fifth anniversary of September 11. I’ll never forget the horror of that day. Then again, I think the 911 families have milked the event for every single penny it’s worth. I would have gladly volunteered my brother to die in the towers had I known I would get that much money – lol!

Roger,

Boy you have so many emotional problems to deal with! Why oh why do you hate your brother so much? You need to get over the past. Hate only destroys the soul and I think it’s about time you forgive your brother – not so much for him, but for yourself.

Anyhow, I still have bad memories from September 11. That day was so surreal. It was like a movie. But I think people need to move on from it and the fact that our wonderful president used 911 to cause more deaths is my real concern now. Hey, can you do lunch Wednesday?

Emotional problems are my specialty! I may not be in town Wednesday but I’ll know for sure later this evening. I’ll give you a call.

Subject: Madonna’s Adoption

Roger,

Knowing that you are a huge Madonna fan (lol!) I was wondering what you thought of her adoption. I think she should give that thing back to Malawi.

Madonna – you know, the one that thinks she’s British – should be put to sleep like an old dog. Where is Mark David Hinckley when we need him? Vadge – a nickname I made up for the rotting corpse - is so desperate for attention that she thinks adopting a little nigglet is going to get her publicity. I was talking to Benny Medina and LA Reid about it the other night and they think she only adopted the kid because it will help her sell records to the Black community. With her, it’s only about publicity. Remember when her daughter Lardass – or is it Lourdes – was born? She milked that for every cent it was worth and doesn’t even talk to the sperm donor daddy anymore. Then she married Guy Richie – who is the only handsome guy she’s ever dated – and ruined his career. That said, this kid is still far better off in her old, wrinkled hands than in an African orphanage, which is the equivalent of a death camp. I also find it funny that the child’s father is suddenly saying that he didn’t know what adoption meant. I don’t believe that for a second; as soon as he found out who Madonna is, he smelled the green.

PerezHilton, Entertainment Weekly, TMZ: all in the bloggers section. It could be made up but knowing Roger Friedman, I doubt it. The email address is Roger's actual personal email address and I sent an email to the other person in the thread and he said that Roger and he "used to be" friends. LOL!

Even after his emails leaked, he is STILL writing stories where he praises Mariah up and down, following a Madonna bashing, on the same page!

Funny stuff. The "spankin' the ham in the bathroom" had me rolling.
