When Paris was in her heyday, the tabloids were mean. Really mean. On this episode, we talk to gossip maven Lainey Lui about why gossip in the 2000s was so cruel, her site included. Lainey is co-anchor on CTVs eTalk, The Social, and founder and editor of LaineyGossip.com. Over the past decade, she’s used her platforms to push for a new, more thoughtful breed of gossip.
We also talk to Alexandra Deane, the director of the documentary This is Paris. Who is the real Paris? Does Paris even know? And how do you film a documentary about someone who’s still finding herself?
