P**** H**** And Lainey Gossip Were Famous For Their Mean Blogs. Now They’re Trying To Change.
This piece on the mea culpas of '00s celeb bloggers makes a good point about being the 'face' of online bitching – the only unscathed current gossip outlets are anonymous, collaborative & ephemeral (ONTD/DeuxMoi). So how can their subjects respond to them? https://t.co/keyy4SSUBp
the article talks about how, or rather if, gossip blogs have become less mean
the focus is on Laineygossip (who has apologised for her old offensive posts) and P**** H**** (whatever)
but most importantly, we get a shout out!
But bloggers like Lui and Hilton were and are the faces of their websites. Other similarly savage bloggers, like the ones behind popular and still active ’00s gossip blogs Oh No They Didn’t and Dlisted (which still uses the tagline “Be Very Afraid”), haven’t had to reckon with their old posts, because they are largely nameless.
