Dear Gossips,

WeΓÇÖre liveblogging today at 3pm ET/Noon PT. Please join Duana, Sarah, and me before your long weekend!

HereΓÇÖs what I was struggling with last night:

I LOVE golf. I love playing golf and I love watching golf. And of course itΓÇÖs the Masters. I will totally be into the Masters all weekend. But... Augusta National still refuses to allow female memberships. They insist itΓÇÖs a private issue. They say itΓÇÖs ΓÇ£traditionΓÇ¥. To quote Rick Morrissey of the Chicago Sun-Times:

ΓÇ£The last (Augusta) club chairman was named ΓÇ£Hootie.ΓÇÖΓÇÖ The current one is named ΓÇ£Billy.ΓÇÖΓÇÖ Really, is there anything else to say?ΓÇ¥ (Source)

Thing is, the people who run Augusta also hold positions of great social and professional importance off the golf course. These dudes donΓÇÖt intend to let their ΓÇ£traditionsΓÇ¥ die with them. And, inconveniently, you canΓÇÖt blame the media for their bullsh-t. Who do you confront when itΓÇÖs not the magazines and the tv shows but your neighbours, colleagues, husbands, and fathers?

Please note there will be no blog tomorrow. The Vampire Diaries recap will be pushed to Monday. ItΓÇÖll be a full, FULL column on Monday. Have a great weekend!

Yours in gossip,


PS. To answer your question: anyone but Phil.
