Is This Dashing Italian Real Estate Agent The Real-Life Christian Grey?

  • An Italian real estate agent named Alessandro Proto, who once gave E.L. James a guided tour of homes in Italy, claims he is the inspiration for Christian Grey. Admittedly, Mr. Proto is rather attractive. But doesn’t he know that Fifty Shades is just Twilight fan fiction? [New York Daily News]
  • Nigella Lawson posted a recipe for “pasta alla puttanesca” — aka, whore spaghetti — with the comment “Do I need to say anything more?” on her Twitter. This appears to be in response to her ex Charles Saatchi’s new lady, Trinny Woodall, making a joke about Nigella being choked. [Daily Mail UK]

Fifty Shades of Grey. From entertainment sites to the morning news, everyone has something to say about the hot, new erotic series. It’s been called “mommy porn” by the New York Times, and sits atop their bestsellers’ list, currently at #1, #2, and #4 amongst combined print and e-book fiction.

It seems like everyone has read it (at least according to “The Today Show” and my own Facebook feed). And yes, even I have read Fifty Shades. Only, I read the story almost two years ago when it was called Master of the Universe, and author E.L. James went by SQ Icedragon. Oh, and Christian and Anastasia? They were originally called Edward and Bella.

My secret is out. I’ll admit it: I read Twilight fanfiction. Keep reading »

This weekend, I read approximately 600 pages of the dirty smutty smut smut called Fifty Shades of Grey. I’m currently almost to the end of the second book in the trilogy and was up till 2 a.m. because I couldn’t wait to find out what would happen next in the Red Room of Pain. Given that it’s incredibly juicy yet poorly written, I’m confident the Fifty Shades series is the new Twilight and a movie is imminent (which is fitting considering Fifty Shades was originally written as Twilight fanfic). Forgetting, for a second, that most Hollywood stars probably wouldn’t do the kind of explicit sex scenes that would do the series justice, I decided to cast the movie based on who I see in the roles. Click on to find out who I’d like to see play Christian Grey, Anastasia Steele, “Mrs. Robinson,” and everyone else of importance in the series (at least through most of book two). (Warning: some spoilers ahead!) Keep reading »
