From time to time (a lot) I poke around new celebrity gossip sites, read news from various off the wall sources, and get asked to review sites and products. So when I was asked (paid) to write this review for a newly redesigned(?) celebrity site, I thought what the heck, maybe I’ll get some ideas for some hot Hollywood gossip columns.
This newly released celeb site is called and Celebrity Gossip and can be found at, you guessed it, CelebrityGossip.com. Now I had never visited previously so I don’t know if there was a great look before but the “new” look is great. Very web 2.0, and very punchy. Pinks are always great since it’s usually the ladies looking for all that juicy Hollywood rumor news.
The main thing about the site is it’s concept of voting on the latest news to promote good stories to the front page. At first glance I would say the concept is a good idea. There’s a lot of junk celebrity news out there and if the TV shows (E, Extra, etc) have to pick and choose and usually do a good job bringing you the best Hollywood news, why should you have to sift through 50 blogs just to find the 10 good stories of the day.
By having a large population of paparazi loving gawkers vote for their favorite stories and pictures you’ll get the good stuff first. The other interesting concept is that although the voting system is diggesque, the stories seem to be selected either through RSS feeds or by an actual editor. That really helps on eliminating a lot of the spam people are seeing pop up on social bookmarking and voting sites like digg and netscape.
Overall, I’m glad I found this site (or should I say the site found me) and glad to do the review. You should check out the site for the latest celebrity gossip, and start voting.
