Olivia de Havilland has spent 101 years on this earth with her reputation as a lady of class and decorum intact. But she’s here to tell you tricks that she did not live through two world wars, the rise and fall of the soviet union, the great depression and getting upstaged by Joan Crawford’s shoulder pads only to have Ryan Murphy drag her good name through the mud with his little television program. And Olivia is not going to let another year go by without exacting her revenge.
As previously reported, Olivia is suing Ryan Murphy and FX for “infringement of common law right of publicity, invasion of privacy and unjust enrichment” based on the show Feud‘s portrayal of her. But as we know, Olivia has an advanced case of the olds, so she told her lawyers to giddyup. The Hollywood Reporter says:
In a Tuesday filing, de Havilland asks Los Angeles Superior Court judge Holly Kendig to set a trial for November, relying on a California statute that essentially allows parties who are 70 or older to speed up litigation.
Olivia’s lawyer Suzelle Smith had this to say:
“There is a substantial risk that without a trial preference, Miss de Havilland will be prejudiced in not obtaining the benefits of the litigation. She is eager to have this case fully resolved well in advance of her 102nd birthday.”
Olivia is savage! She’s going to have Ryan’s head on a plate if it’s the last the she does (which it might be). Ryan Murphy ought to know, better than most, to never cross an old queen. Not only will Olivia see him in court, but she’ll probably show up wearing the exact same dress as him but looking ten times better. Hell, she might even throw a drink in his face or slap him across the face with a silk glove if we’re lucky. This is one feud I am living for! And if, God forbid, she doesn’t make it to see her day in court, she’s going to haunt the shit out of him! Of course Ryan will probably squeeze a show out of it: AHS: Bitch Slapped By a Ghost.
