HBO's "Entourage" has been throwing around topical Los Angeles references all season and last night it all came to a head (If you haven't seen Sunday night's episode, be warned, there are spoilers!).

While there's real world talk about bringing a football team to downtown Los Angeles, NFL head honchos in the show picked super agent Ari Gold to make it happen. That was until Deadline Hollywood blogger Anna -- they didn't use Nikki Finke's real name, but had Carrie Fisher play her or one of her writers -- got a hold of taped transcripts that showed the true Gold. The headline read: "EXCLUSIVE: GOLD TO STAFF -- 'YOU'RE ALL C--NTS AND C---SUCKERS!'" (In real life, Ari Emanuel, the inspiration for Gold, is no stranger to Finke)
