GossipandGab.com was created to indulge the guilty pleasure of our love of gossip, scandal, interesting news, cheesy and outrageous television shows, weird videos and the delicious buffet of strangeness that is the Internet. We hope you’ll find the site a tasty dish as well. The site is staffed by a bunch of TV and entertainment junkies who honestly just enjoy writing and are real fans of the shows they recap and the celebrities they rant about.
GossipandGab.com believes strongly in the intellectual property rights of writers, photographers and other creative types. After all, we are those creative types. If you should happen to spot anything on our site that you feel might be a copyright violation, belong to someone else or is improperly sourced or credited, please contact the editor immediately at the e-mail address below. You can be certain we’ll open a can of severe unpleasantness on any guilty party.

Ann Turner, Assistant Editor

Ann Turner has been writing about entertainment and stupid celebrities for too many years and wonders when people will realize being famous is dangerous to your brain cells. She is also one of those rare and wonderful creatures known as a girl gamer.
Tammie Slogeris, Lead Writer
tslogeris (at) gmail.com
Tammie never saw herself as a writer, the main reason for that is because she couldn’t pass an English class in school to save her life. Yet, here she is, ranting and raving about the celebrities that we all love to hate! She started writing in 2012 when her friend asked her to help out on her website, shortly after that, she decided that she actually enjoyed the whole writing thing, even if she isn’t all that great at it. Make sure to follow her on Twitter and check out her recaps and rants here on Gossip & Gab!

We are currently not hiring any additional paid staff writers at this time. If we have any paid freelancing opportunities, you can find them on our Write for Us page. Or, you may pitch us with your story or column idea and we’ll see if it might be a good fit for our site. Please don’t bother pitching if you’ve never written anything but a term paper on cell mutation or sentimental ramblings in your journal before. We may play it a bit fast and loose on GossipandGab.com, but some passing knowledge of the ins and outs of the English language and a familiarity with blogging about entertainment is preferred. Pitches and story ideas can be sent to editor (at) gossipandgab.com. Please do not bug the Editor-in-Chief with pitches as he can be quite grumpy before coffee.
