Thanks to everyone who emailed over the last two days about Tuesday’s column. I appreciate the love on email and on Twitter. Just know that it’s over and I’ve moved on. You learn from the experience and I won’t let it happen again. This isn’t going to change me or the site. Just a minor setback. It happened, there’s nothing I can do about it now, and I’m already looking forward to what’s to come. I actually appreciated Erica not denying our friendship in the tweet she released Tuesday. I honestly thought she wouldn’t acknowledge it. So for that part, I’m glad she acknowledged we once had a friendship. As for the other part about “legally protecting herself,” well, that’s complete garbage. Whatever. Let’s move on to other things.
By the way, not going to have a live video blog tonight. Feeling a bit under the weather and congested. I really don’t think you want to see/hear me sniffling on camera for 45 minutes. So I apologize for that, but will be back with a new show next week. If there’s anyone you’d like me to try and interview like we did with Lori last week, by all means, send me your suggestions. We’re in the “off season” now of “Bachelor/ette” stuff, so there really isn’t a whole lot to talk about regarding that show. I’d love to interview more people, but obviously, we can eliminate anyone from this franchise. However, if you think there’s someone out there that you’d like to hear from (Idol contestants, Survivor contestants, etc), feel free to email me and I’ll see what I can do.
Thought this was an interesting story passed on to me regarding tabloid sales in 2012. Check this story out:
So all the tabloid magazines are way down in terms of sales, huh? Just keep reminding yourself of that every time you see a headline that makes no sense. They’re desperate for attention. Sales are down. So of course they’re going to make stuff up. It’s the only way they can get people to buy their nonsense. And the guy quoted in the article is right. Tabloids are at a huge disadvantage because they only come out once a week. With Twitter, Facebook, and all the entertainment sites out there, news is coming to us all day every day. A tabloid printing once a week is going to behind on stuff all the time. It’s inevitable. So to make their story more salacious and appealing to the readers, they’ll just make stuff up or get quotes off record from “sources,” “insiders,” and “friends close to the situation” to make it seem like something is there when it isn’t.
Here’s a great article to read on how the tabloids really work and the shenanigans that go on behind-the-scenes. On to your emails…
