Eli Roth thinks Peaches Geldof is “an accomplished journalist”


Here are some photos of “accomplished journalist” Peaches Geldof in Germany – she tweeted these. By the way, it’s her boyfriend Eli Roth who is calling her an “accomplished journalist”. I’ll get to it in a second. First, can I just say something about Peaches? What with the new (horse) teeth, the big orange tan and now with her newly slimmed-down figure, doesn’t Peaches look… kind of good? Yes, she’s “gone Hollywood” but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Peaches actually looks kind of cute here. I hate myself now.

But of course she’s still pretty dumb and ridiculous. But her boyfriend Eli Roth can’t admit that. Eli was on Chelsea Handler’s show this week, and Chelsea tried to joke with him about “Peaches” being a stripper’s name. Eli’s reaction? Oh, God:

Peaches’ film director boyfriend Eli Roth defended her on a U.S. talk show, describing her as an ‘accomplished journalist’.

Host Chelsea Handler on E! show Chelsea Lately admitted she thought Geldof was a stripper due to her unusual first name.

Handler said: ‘I want to talk to you about your new girlfriend Peaches Geldof. I met you when you came to my book party and you were with Peaches but I didn’t know who Peaches was, I know she is famous but I didn’t know who she was. So when you said Peaches, I thought she was a stripper. And I kind of felt bad because I felt like I almost kind of treated her like a stripper.’

In reply, Roth said: ‘No she’s actually produced three documentaries that have aired on British television, she’s an accomplished journalist.’

Um… what? Peaches “writes” a “column” for Nylon Magazine. For the most part, she makes up lists, like this. She pontificates, “Dear Diary” style. Granted, she writes for a magazine and I don’t, and that does piss me off. But what pisses me off more is that Peaches Geldof is not anywhere near a “journalist” or a gifted magazine writer. Case in point: over the weekend, I got my Septemeber Vogue, and I’m still pouring through it. I haven’t finished it yet because I keep going back and re-reading Louisianan Julia Reed’s beautiful and heartbreaking essay on BP and the Gulf Coast. Julia Reed is an accomplished journalist. Peaches Geldof is an air-headed druggie bimbo famewhore.

Back to Eli Roth for a second: he’s working on an “ironic” horror film called Thanksgiving. He got the idea when he made a fictional “trailer” for it for Grindhouse. Pajiba has coverage here, and they’re bashing him for it.

    she looks better, BUT that does NOT make her a better person.she does not deserve the life she is living, she is just a spoiled brat, who never had to work to achieve something… sad

  2. Snarf says:

    Do you expect anything but delusional behavior from someone who’s claim to fame is making borderline snuff films?

  3. original kate says:

    you know that icky smell your refrigerator gets when it’s time to be cleaned out? eli looks like he smells that, all the time, every photo…like something rotten is wafting his way.

  4. LOVE ANGELINA says:

    Thats her boyfriend. I wouldn’t expect him to say she sucks ass as a writer but the sex is good so I keep her around. LOL He said the right thing. However I don’t read Nylon so I can’t speak on how good she writes and I always found her attractive in the way I find Amy Winehouse attractive when I am an dark, Gothic kinda mood and in need of some kink. However yea she looks even better now. More polished.

  5. Kristin says:

    journalist or not – his girlfriend is tore up. Tan don’t help.

  6. chris says:

    Everyone looks cute in a dirndl. You could put Dr. Laura in a dirndl and she would look cute. Okay, maybe not her, but most people.

  7. Jean says:

    On her Twitter she says she is in Munich, surrounded by Austrian mountains and Lederhosen. She’s got the required journalistic geography skills..she should be careful not to stumble into any war zone, the Middle East is right around the corner after all.

  8. wunderkindt says:

    Who the hell is Peaches Geldof?

    Is this supposed to be like another Paris Hilton thing where it’s famous for nothing yet it’s still ‘famous’???

  9. zippersgirl says:

    Well, she’s knows her way around a run-on sentence. Guess that makes her a journalist now days.

  10. Green Is Good says:

    I can’t believe I used to be attracted to Eli Roth. Now? *retch*

  11. danielle says:

    Ok, read the articles – not really all that bad, I’ve certainly read worse. Not gonna make me a fan, but…

  12. Persistent Cat says:

    Please don’t let them procreate. Those kids would be so ugly. His eyebrows on her flat face *shudder*

  13. Jover says:

    With all the air these celebs blow up each other’s rears to inflate their egos, the earth will soon run out of oxygen.

  14. di butler says:

    She looks just like Daddy in a few of those pics. And that is NOT a good thing.

    All the Brits I know laugh at us for accepting Peaches as a person of substance and won’t believe me when I tell them that just because Hollywood and the media might, the rest of us aren’t that stupid.

  15. Praise St. Angie! says:

    the only thing that she’s “accomplished”, IMO, is being born to rich, famous parents.

    oh, and she’s accomplished showing us that she’s a drugged out, skanky slut who wears the confederate flag to be “edgy”.

  16. girl says:

    @Green is Good: Right there with you.

    If her father wasn’t Bob Geldof, would we even know what a Peaches Geldof is?

  17. Lady Nightshade says:

    I finally saw Inglorious Bastards last night and I DO NOT get why people say he was good in that. He only has like three lines and mostly he just made mad faces..The movie was good, but any hairy dude could have done just as well in his role.

  18. dread pirate cuervo says:

    I just saw Inglorious Basterds last week & now I can only think of him as “the Bear Jew”. Like, I was surprised he didn’t take a Louisville Slugger to Chelsea Handler’s head.

  19. coup de grazia says:

    i think eli roth is an accomplished ass-talker

  20. TQB says:

    In all fairness to Peaches, we were all raging on Fantasia for being a selfish piece of crap for attempting suicide and abandoning her daughter. Peaches is the daughter of Bob, god of all rock production, but her mother was Paula Yates, who even before her suicide was so unstable that she’d lost custody of all their children. So I give peaches a pass – she does something besides just party (not much, but…), and while I don’t really dig Eli he seems to be a fairly intelligent and motivated fellow.

    Also, making fun of someone’s given name is a little cheap, no? I mean, it’s not like she was there to talk her drugged out mother into naming her Jane or something.

  21. connie says:

    slimmed down, yes. attractive, not even slightly

  22. Nudgie says:

    Tell Me Why…I don’t Like Peaches…
    Tell Me Why…I don’t Like Peaches…
    Tell Me Why…I don’t Like Peaches…
    I wanna shoo-oo-oo-oot the whole bitch down…

  23. Lisa says:

    According to Wikipedia, she’s written for the Daily Telegraph and the Guardian. But I don’t care enough to do any further research into that.

  24. RHONYC says:

    it would be weird to sleep with someone who makes movies about people getting dismembered & decapitated.


  25. Kelly says:

    Eli might be a crap filmmaker and have crap taste in women, but I still think he’s hot. I guess I just have a thing for that virile Jew type.

  26. girl says:

    I used to think he was pretty cool until he wrote that open letter calling out PG’s one nighter (who is probably a douche in his own right)’s mother and gave out identifying information on her and her other children. What an asshole! He has to know what kind of fans his movies attract. Was he hoping people would contact them? Obviously he is a complete moron.

  27. Ron says:

    I swear everytime I see this girl it looks like Elmer Fudd and Betty Boop fu**ed and this is what happened.

  28. sparkledog says:

    Peaches who?

  29. Liana says:

    I can’t even with him. OK, I write a blog (sometimes, when I feel like it, which isn’t often). Does that make me an accomplished horse whisperer? No.

  30. a says:

    yuck. just yuck.

  31. Taurus says:

    He’s so hot, she’s so not. He was smokin in Bastards. Wish he had more screen time. She must be a good lay. Lucky girl, he looks like he’s hung

  32. Confuzzle says:

    She must give amazing head.

  33. Claire says:

    someone ghost writes her column, i know that AS A FACT

  34. mtngirl says:

    Gaahh – The more I read her “work” the more I think that Peaches most important journalistic accomplishments are scrawled on bathroom stalls around the globe frequented by euro-trash – with a hot pink, glitter sharpie pen, or red lipstick.

  35. Kittypants says:

    @Claire – I completely believe you. I’m starting to find this gruesome twosome insanely irritating, split up already.

  36. poiup says:

    What TBQ said.

    For God’s sake why do you harass these two, this girl’s mother killed herself when she was a child. If she’s not very bright take into account the permanent trauma she had to deal with while growing.

    As far as Eli goes its clear the relationship is that of a protector. If he wants to be that then good for him because its probably something she very dearly needed. I think he deserves respect for wanting to be that. He’s maintained his looks well and can pass for someone in his 20s. If anyone will make Peaches more intelligent/literate it will be this guy and good for him. I’d also say she’s moving in the opposite direction of Lohan.

  37. Flea says:

    Dirndls are the sex.

    Haters gonna hate.

  38. Dr_Venkman says:

    Saw him saying that, laughed a lot, moved on.

  39. Frak says:

    I don’t know who this Peaches is, or why she’s famous, but Eli Roth’s face has got douchebag written all over it.
