My Weirdest Pitches Of The Week
Think the life of a gossip columnist/blogger is all sawdust and tinsel?
Well, here are some of the pitches I've gotten this week, to give you a hint of the reality behind the glitterdome:

*"Pepsi to feature Super Bowl spot with winner of The X Factor."
*"Bridgehampton Polo Club enters halfway mark of unprecedented 15th anniversary season."
*"Ryan Park was dumped twice on The Bachelorette. Would you be interested in talking to him about his passion for solar energy?"

Please let me know if you are working on any stories that might be a fit for Dr. Khadavi or would like a quote from a celeb fan. In fact, Melissa George recently tweeted about RejuveMD!"
