No more Tales of Toothy Tile....

Thank You

The images are countless, breathtaking: Four editors-in-chief, 16 years online, piles of exclusives, plenty of gossip, invented languages, maddeningly fascinating celebrities (dead and alive) and most importantly—you. The reader.

We did this for two decades, folks! When The Awful Truth, which I founded at Premiere magazine 20 years ago, ends this week, it's not the deliciously decadent Blind Vices I will miss the most...

It's you barking types who always made me feel gloriously alive, with all you had to say and scream and be so real about.

That community is my life's (professional) work up until now. It has meant more to me than each of you will ever know.

But it really is time to move on.

If you don't agree, just keep in mind that when I first took this job at E!—in 1996, when the network founded E! Online—I was working at the established and respected Premiere magazine. Scores of people told me, "Online just isn't the place to go."

Everybody told me to pass on the job, and so I did. Then I called back the next day and an amazing man named Lew Harris said, yes, of course, I could change my mind. And I did.

So that's what I'd like my last words to be: Always do what you're not supposed to do.

And see you on Twitter @Ted_Casablanca.


OT: I am definitely tardy for the party because I just found out last year that he'd gotten his nom de plume from Valley of the Dolls.

    • I really liked Joey giving Tripp encouragement and playing matchmaker for him and Wendy. They have really good brother chemistry. The only thing is I wish is that they had discussed Tripp’s failed relationships and how he might be reluctant to get into another relationship because he doesn’t want to get his heart broken again. But I enjoyed their scenes. And, agreed with Wendy that Tripp always rates a hug  Please register in order to view this content I also liked how charming Johnny was today with Wendy and with Chanel too. He could give Alex a few lessons Today was a perfect example of why I don’t have sympathy for Alex and probably never will. If he really, truly cared for Stephanie, the so called love of his life, he wouldn’t be acting like this. And due to RSW’s portrayal, it doesn’t come off as anger or lashing out in order to soothe his feelings, it just comes off as him not caring. Regardless, I do like how messy this is all getting and I hope it gets even messier. 
    • The media who are going on about how much fun and 'like Parliament' the braying at the SOTU was, while blaming 'both sides,' are disgusting people. It's all fun fun fun to them, as our country grinds to a complete halt.
    • Lucy should have just retired, aside from game show or talk show appearances. Her efforts in the '70s and '80s were beneath her (Stone Pillow may have been more of a success but it further wrecked her health). She probably should have tried being a game show host, or producing a game show, as she loved them. It's just that she was, supposedly, incredibly lonely at home, so kept trying and trying.

    • I wasn’t watching the soap Texas but apparently actors Benjamin Hendrickson and Tom Wiggin were both in the cast before both landed at As The World Turns as Detective Hal Munson and Kirk Anderson.
