Nikki Finke is back!

And, from the look of her first blog on she is loaded for bear.

Finke takes a swipe at her old website she founded, Deadline Hollywood, by dismissively writing: “I barely recognize DH these days. Some of those bylines I never hired and wouldn’t. (Anita Busch or Peter Bart) She’s batshit crazy and he’s an unethical fart). A lot of those stories I consider a waste of time covering.

I never wanted a bland and boring news feed. But that’s what the people running it now want. DH plans to unveil a redesign next week, and the best thing I can say about what I saw the other day is that it’s generic. (Yes, I just threw up in my mouth a little).

She also calls Deadline Hollywood’s film editor Michael Fleming as “Little Lord Fauntleroy” and “Mike Phlegming” and promises to write more in the coming days.

Last October, Fleming called out Finke, claiming her feud with owner Jay Penske had become a “public spectacle,” and that “If she returns—she is under contract until 2016—we will welcome her with open arms. If she doesn’t, we will survive, knowing in our hearts that she is miscast as the victim in this drama.”

Well, we now know that she is back. And, she promises to be a “cruel and quirky alternative to Deadlame and Valiety and The Hollywood Unreported and TheCrap.”

Her new logo, she notes, looks “gritty and bullet-riddled with fiery palm tree shooting sparks into the night sky”

Finke also promises to add new features weekly –
