Description

The Executive Editor of People Magazine provides a "rollicking, anecdote-filled, star-studded recap of her career sprinkled with celebrities, red carpets, photo shoots" (Parade.com)—and also hilariously awkward run-ins—reflecting on the nature of celebrity, and what it says about our culture. As a journalist and editor, Kate Coyne has had her fair share of celebrity run-ins. From her time with the NY Post's Page Six, where A-listers avoided her like the plague, then to Good Housekeeping, where celebrities grudgingly appeared on the cover, and finally to People magazine, where everyone (well, almost everyone), would kill to be featured, Kate has seen and heard it all. While she never thought her Oxford training would lead her to become a celebrity journalist, she's doing what she loves—talking to people of the moment and their huge influence on popular culture. Her stories are funny, breezy, and self-deprecating. They feature Robert Downey Jr., who makes a thirteen year old Kate's heart melt; Michael Douglas who warned her about a life of gossip mongering; Tom Cruise, who will surprise you; Tom Hanks and yes, he is as wonderful as you think; Wynonna Judd and chocolate cola cake; accidentally stalking Mariska Hargitay; and other great stories with cringe-worthy moments. A vivid writer, with stories of people we are all obsessed about, Kate Coyne takes readers on an "honest, funny, and insider-y" (Good Housekeeping) tour of celebrityland.
