I think I know your type: Your attention is as finely attuned to the names “Brad” and “Britney” as it is your own; you know that the Cirque Lodge isn’t really a skiing destination; and you might not want to admit it, but the three months since you’ve last had your daily Scoop fix have been long ones. Well, your wait is over. Almost.
On Monday, Oct. 29, Scoop comes back to life.
What can you expect? For starters, an up-to-date look at all things celebrity and pop culture, from a reporter who’s on the inside track. Need your daily dose of gossip? Well, I can tell you who has been arrested, made over or caught kissing a backup dancer before you’ve finished your morning coffee.
I can also tell you what you won’t find: train-wreck reporting that leaves you queasy with emotional seasickness. You see, I’m not that different from you: I want to be able to indulge in Hollywood’s entire spectrum — from gawking at the latest celebrity baby, to knowing the inside story on why “Viva Laughlin” ever got the green light. And like you, I want to be able to do it without feeling the need to take a long, loofah-intensive shower.
Some more scoop on me: You might have read some of my work in the pages of People or OK! magazines. Between the two, I’ve had the eye-opening (and horrifying) experiences of interviewing some of Britney’s nannies, covering countless red carpets, and I’ve also dug deep into the world of celebrity assistants, and the real stories behind the reality TV you love so much. I’m the kind of person who knows all the celeb hotspots well enough to prefer not to frequent them, and you’re more likely to track me down at dawn, not dusk, as you can catch me regularly on “Morning Joe” with Joe Scarborough on MSNBC TV.
The big picture is this: Entertainment news is where we all go when we need a break from our real lives, so why not do it right? Come back on Monday and I’ll show you what I’m talking about.
