The evolution of celebrity culture

In this episode:

  • A-listers treat podcasts as recognition. We will explore why celebrities use it to spill tea.
  • Avenue magazine editor in chief, Ben Widdicombe, talks about celebrity gossip reporting his heyday, which he chronicles in his new book, “Gatecrasher”.
  • And celebrity paranormal, Chris Medina, provides more details about his reading of the former “Vanderpump Rules” star Stassi Schroeder – and even read Maggie and Ian.


Here are a few examples of today’s stories:

‘Gatecrasher’ from the world of celebrities

As a gossip reporter, Ben Widdicombe has been covering rich and famous people for almost 20 years in New York City. Now the editor in chief of Avenue magazine, he noted the ‘gatecrashing’ years in his new book entitled, “Gatecrasher: How I Helped the Rich Become Famous and Damaging the World

Could you tell us a little more about the full title of this book?

“It’s kind of a fact that as a gossip reporter in particular, it’s not like all of this happens remotely. And we, as gossip reporters, I feel somewhat involved in turning on the spectacle. So, even though it’s very fun and there are a lot of bad behaviors that explained in this book, I feel I didn’t really beg them to stop because I’m a gossip reporter. And you want this outrageous behavior because that’s the kind of thing they would call it. “

Do you have regrets for making a famous star or giving them airtime?

“No, not at all. I mean, because most of the people we cover are among us. Well? I mean, they really need fame. Entertaining us is their job.

The only person I have sympathy for is the Olsen twins, because I think the two young people have never made the choice to enter the show business. Their parents put it on television when they were babies in “Full House,” and they said they never had a choice. And then they have a series of long films, you might remember, where they solve crimes and whatnot when they like [ages] 8, 10 and 12. And it’s true that they can jump, I guess. But, at the Aughts, which is a place where many actions at “Gatecrasher” take place, they are very famous and so hunted. And that is the only two people I have ever thought of, ‘These are people who are in situations that are not their own.’

But Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan? All those people really need attention. So, no, I have no qualms about covering them. “

Psychic connection

Last year, celebrity psychic Chris Medina read Stassi Schroeder for his “Straight Up with Stassi” podcast. He spoke with Maggie and Ian recently about the experience, and explained more about the ongoing drama for the former “Vanderpump Rules” star.

Are we going to see a comeback from Stassi? What did you predict for him?

“You can, you can’t hold bad bitches for too long. That’s what I’m going to say. And I really feel like what Stassi is and what people don’t realize or remember from that episode is that I want to go further into detail when come to his personal life and things that are happening, but at the same time, Stassi, we all know him, he plays very close to the chest when it comes to him on a personal level, he has no problem slapping someone in the face and communicating his intentions in a way that. But when it comes to him personally, he will keep a lot of things in it. So I don’t really get the chance to dive as much as I want. But this is someone today who is hit with evolution and transformation. “

Every Portuguese wastes 183 kg of food a year, and this is "inconceivable".

President of the Portuguese Federation of Food Banks Against Hunger Isabelle Jonet considers food waste unacceptable and absurd, as every Portuguese wastes 183 kg of food a year.

As World Food Loss and Waste Awareness Day is celebrated, speaking at a conference on the subject in Lisbon, the official recalled statistics released by the National Statistical Institute and said the situation was “worse than expected.”

The data, official and published for the first time, refers to 2020 and shows that 1.89 million tons of food was wasted in Portugal this year, so each Portuguese wasted an average of 183.6 kilograms of food.

INE statistics show that families spend the most. The figures show that over 1.2 million tons of food was wasted by families this year, followed by catering with over 237 thousand tons, trade and distribution with 214 thousand tons, primary production with over 101 thousand tons and food . industry, about 61 thousand tons.

“We buy too much, we buy bad, we let it go bad. It is unacceptable that a third of what is produced ends up in the trash,” the official said, speaking at a debate organized by the United Movement Against Waste.

Ana Cristina Carrola of the Portuguese Environmental Protection Agency (APA), who also took part in the debate, stressed that the average amount of waste per year per inhabitant in the European Union is 173 kg, less than the 183 kg that is thrown away by the Portuguese.

“This is unthinkable in our day,” he lamented.
