Dear Gossips,

What I really want to do here is to write about Serial. But it’s 9 o’clock in the morning and many of you probably haven’t listened to it yet, the final episode. Fine. Can we talk about how and why there are only 12 episodes?

Why not extend it all season like a network television show? Who says Serial has to be cable? Who says Serial has to be HBO? It’s not like we WON’T RUN OUT OF QUESTIONS, GODDAMMIT! If I could figure out how to do that, I would have posted that last sentence in ever increasing font sizes so you could appreciate how I’m gradually getting louder and Louder and LOUDER.

At what point does something become a hate-listen the way a television show becomes a hate-watch? And are we there yet with Serial?

Am tempted, when it slows down next week, to do a live-blog about this so we can all yell our theories at each other and end up blueballed and unsatisfied. Well sh-t. That’s the holiday spirit.

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

PS. What is this world? A sh-tty Hollywood movie might provoke an international diplomatic crisis!?!?

Dear Gossips,

It’s been reported all week that Amy Pascal will be losing her job at Sony imminently. At press time, this hasn’t happened yet. It’s such a mess over there right now, firing Pascal would be yet another major headline, another bad news story for a company that is balls deep in bad news. So, if they do end up letting her go, I’m not sure they’ll make that announcement while the spotlight is on them. Best to do it quietly, when people are distracted by Christmas, non?

Or maybe she won’t leave at all? According to TMZ, many major industry players are on her side. We already know how George Clooney feels about her and supposedly Jack Nicholson, Tyler Perry, and John Singleton are too. Full Story

 

Selena came down with the drama

I have a friend, H, and she has an expression. It’s the best. She dropped it on me once when we were at a work meeting years ago, before I started blogging full-time. One of our colleagues, P, was upset about some negative feedback. She sulked for the rest of the session, then at the very end, when everyone was getting up to leave, she let the tears fall down her face and ran to the bathroom. Full Story
