Hey everyone, some of you may remember me. I used to run Jen Fans with Jasmine when we took it over from Biba. I stepped away a year or so ago for various reasons. One because of time and the second was the candids. I am a VERY Anti-Candid person. But more about that next. Jasmine has stepped down from the site and I offered to take the site back on, there will be a few changes and additions and I think addressing everything is better to do it in list form.
1) New Layouts
As you can see we have two new layouts, the main site is made by me and the gallery is made by Laura, in fact its an older layout that used to be on Jasmine and I’s old Jen site and I simply edited the header and changed up the coding to a more modern look. I hope you like both.
2) We are now “Stalkerazzi Free”
As I said earlier I am really Anti-Candid. When the paps laws were passed Jasmine stopped posting candids as you may of noticed. She did mention there would no longer be any with her kids but for the rest you may have just assumed she was busy, but Jasmine stopped them because like me she is against them and feels awful knowing that Jen hates the paps and we were still posting them regardless. So Jas simply archived them, kept the old ones but stopped posting. I have now deleted them all, I felt the best way to be supportive of Jen was to not have any trace of them left.
I believe that every celebrity’s privacy should be respected. Think of it this way, if someone followed you down the street taking photos, we’d call them a stalker and most likely take them to court, but somehow with celebs its not recognised that way. The excuse “They signed up for this,” gets thrown around but sadly its just a lame justification we come up with in order to justify our fixation. Celebrities may have decided to be in the media eye, but as I recall NONE signed a contract that stipulated they should have their every waking private moment violated.
As you all know Jen, Halle Berry, Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard all were involved in some measure or other into bringing the attention to paps photographing their children. Thankfully thanks to Jen and Halle laws have been passed to stop this and Kristen and Dax managed to get many media outlets to no longer post pictures of celebrity children. This is one huge step in the right direction and hopefully next there will be tough laws on paps in general but until that they Jen Fans will be doing its bit and showing respect to Jen and her family by being completely candid-free.
3) Site Completion
For awhile we haven’t really had any pages on the site, I will be completing all of these when I have the time.
4) Gallery Maintenance
I will be very slowly changing things around on the gallery, mostly it’ll be stuff you won’t see but one thing you will is the Photoshoots, some of them should be as Official photoshoots of Alias so they are in the wrong place.
Anyway that’s it, I am really excited to be back at the site, I know some of you will be upset about the candids but I urge you to think of it from the point-of-view I explained. Otherwise there are plenty of social media sites that have the photos should you want to view them.
