Gossip King Marc Malkin starts his new gig at E! next month. But before he begins dishing for the Wild On network, he sat down for an exclusive gossip fest with FBLA.
Q: What story are you most proud of breaking?
A: Proud isn’t actually the word I’d use…It’s more like shocked…I still can’t believe it’s me who has broken some rather major stories…Most recently, I’d have to say it’s a tie between the demise of Christie Brinkley’s marriage and Lindsay Lohan’s now infamous Georgia Rule hospital visit for being overheated and dehydrated.
Q: If gossip is juicy, does it matter if it’s true?
A: Of course. But truth really is in the mind of the beholder. Just because a publicist says something isn’t true doesn’t always mean it isn’t.
Q: Do celebs ever get mad if you don’t dish about them?
A: I don’t think so. But some of them sure were more than happy to be written about on their way to the top. I’ll never forget being asked to go to lunch, dinner and/or drinks with people like Britney Spears, Jessica Simpson, Beyonce, and the young boys of N’Sync.
Q: What’s with Perez Hilton’s hair?
A: Sorry, I’ve never seen his ass.
