What’s that word? You know the one. The one that everyone gets involved with it at some point in their lives. I know what you’re thinking…love, right? Wrong. I’ll give you a hint: it has a popular TV show named after it and it’s the reason Perez Hilton is so popular. Got it? It’s gossip, the six-letter word that can ruin lives. But while Perez shares the scandals of Hollywood’s hottest, we also have to deal with our own, miniature version of Hollywood gossip—the rumor mill. This is the gossip version of the broken telephone, where the smallest decision or the tiniest white lie escalates and morphs into another meaning as it passes from one ear to the next. But even when the rumor mill begins with the truth, it usually always ends in a lie.

This is where I come in. Inspired by the comedy Easy A, starring Emma Stone, I’m sharing the scandalous stories of these gossiped-about guys and girls, hoping I can separate fact from fiction. I’m hoping you’ll weigh in on your thoughts and set the record straight!
