Tabloid Whore!

3.25.2007

OVER AND OUT.

Hello My Darlings…

As you’ve probably noticed, I haven’t been able to dedicate the time to Tabloid Whore lately as much as I have in the past. So, after much thought, 1,613 posts and 21 months slaving at the computer (in addition to having a full time job), I’ve decided it’s time for Tabloid Whore to come to an end. I'm just too busy to keep the blog up the way it deserves to be, plus, priorities have changed and I want to focus on some other things and pursue other fun writing projects. And seriously, how long do you think a person can write about celebrities getting divorced, this girl or that guy going into rehab, so and so having a baby but not marrying the daddy or this actress and that actress doing coke on “da club’s” toilet seat before they check themselves and realize that this is not what life is all about? Not to mention, after Britney shaved her head, everything else in gossipland became dull and just paled in comparison.

Thanks to all of you who were loyal readers of Tabloid Whore, those of you who posted comments faithfully (you know who you are!), and those of you who sent me emails over the past couple years saying such nice things. You guys made it fun and all worth it.

If you are looking for a couple fun blogs to visit that mix it up beyond all the repetitive gossip you can read everywhere else, please check out the sites of my two all time favorite bloggers, MK at POPBYTES and Distressed Jeans at CONVERSATIONS WITH FAMOUS WRITERS. Their writing and blogs have always inspired me and I am so lucky to now have them as friends.

Take care everyone!!!

xoxo
TW (signing off.)

This is sad. I got used to checking in at least once a week with your site, it's a guilty pleasure of mine. I wish you would change your mind! But in any case, I wish you luck and happiness in whatever you are doing. It's been fun reading your comments. Have a great life!

My Dear Sweet TW:

I will miss checking your site daily. It made me feel like we were chatting every day and I will miss that contact with you and the fashion, gossip and humor you provided me!

The good that has come out of this travesty is I am going to email you personally right now and set up shopping! It's been WAY too long.

You are so talented and I look forward to your next adventure.

I love and support you and you will ALWAYS be my Tabloid Whore!!!

I just found your site a few months ago... TW, you have the best editorial style! This place put together the best info on Anna & Satan... and all the previews from the Nat'l Enquirer.

I'm happy you can devote time to other things..... but your site can't be replaced!!! It's not the divorces and scandals, it's how it's put together that makes it interesting.

Also loved that last recap for The Hills. And i don't even watch the show! Maybe TW can start writing for Television Without Pity.

Noooo, I have never left a comment on your site till now. I started viewing your website when I was like..7th grade-you were my number one source for gossip on celebrities. I was able to impress my friends with those first pictures of Suri you had! Your site had always the cleanest feel to it...and now I guess I have to rely on other sources. Thank you for the time youve spent on this site, it was the thing I would look at next to youtube and other stuff like that.
