Malkin Dishes at E!

marcmalkin.jpegE! Online snagged celebrity gossip guru Marc Malkin to write a daily gossip column and host an online gossip show on The Vine. He’ll also appear on the network’s E! News and The Daily 10.

According to a press release:

Malkin is widely recognized as the journalist who first broke the news of Christie Brinkley’s recent marital break-up, the second pregnancies of both Gwyneth Paltrow and Brooke Shields, and Lindsay Lohan’s recent controversial hospital visit among many others. At E! Online, Malkin will take on a number of high-profile assignments. He will write E! Online’s Planet Gossip, a daily column that is set to launch in October. In addition, Malkin will now break his top news stories and provide commentary exclusively at E!, contributing to E! News and The Daily 10. Also next month, Malkin will co-host a virtual roundtable discussion show each week on The Vine @ E! Online. Planet Gossip will bring together celebrity reporters from around the globe for a comprehensive roundup of each week’s top stories.

Wait, doesn’t E! already have a gossip columnist? Well, the awful truth is Ted Casablanca is leaving. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow. But soon (O.K. probably by next summer) and for the rest of his life.
