Guilty pleasures come in many forms. I would like to invite people to read The Soup and indulge in one of mine. Because if you read them more, they’ll write more. So my motivations are largely selfish.
I’ve heard a plausible theory that The Soup is a dumping ground for talented press people who can not only write humorously, but are normally constrained by journalistic integrity (yeah, I know), and who want an outlet for the more tasteless, uncorroborated or otherwise not-so-printworthy material. (And it’s pretty much equal opportunity gossip.)
Whoever they are, they serve a good purpose. And if you have gossip for them, make contact.
