COURTENEY COX DROPPED THE BALL
Sorry, Courteney, we think you missed the boat when it comes to your new series Dirt. You have a lot to learn about tabloid journalism and celebrity weeklies. Your fatal error was making the show a dreadful melodrama / soap opera. Take it from an expert, there is nothing more FUN than celebrity gossip! The crazy, nervy things that hapless reporters have to do to get a scoop are fascinating. (For your information, editors are NOT seen at premiers or nightclubs trolling for news.) And celebrities’ outrageous behavior is ALWAYS hugely entertaining. Yes, the photographers are a bunch of eccentric characters who delight in outsmarting each other. Tipsters are often actors who want to make their competition look bad. And don’t forget those power hungry publicists. It’s a crazy exciting world that changes every day, but it’s always good for a LAUGH. And THAT’S what Dirt lacks.
