Cruise to blog: desist!


A Fly on the Wall has made a quick name for his/herself since catching the blogging bug last month. The site posted the news of Julia Roberts' pregnancy a day or two before the story broke in the media, citing a conversation with a CAA agent friend. Today, Fly managed a different kind of online celebrity: Tom Cruise's lawyers demanded removal of a post about the star's supposed petty demands on the set of Mission Impossible 3. The list of demands was fake, the lawyers said. Rather than fight about it, the blogger took down the post and told MSNBC's Jeannette Walls:

"My blog is just for fun, and Iím not going to get into hissy fits with people over this stuff."

Now if Fly would just get the L.A. Observed link right...
