[Gawker] Why I Lie: A PR Guy Comes Clean
One of the toughest jobs of a publicist is learning how to lie. It’s the one thing about my career that keeps me awake at night. I’m not looking for sympathy—I chose this profession. But as some of you know, it can be a dangerous circle, telling lies to keep other lies intact.
Sometimes I lie to my client’s friends, or his wife, or his girlfriend, or his other family members. Quite often, I lie to the public. » Continued
[NationalEnquirer] This former child star recently had a baby with her athlete husband, but the bundle of joy hasn’t helped their troubled marriage.

[BuzzFoto] This beautiful R&B singer peaked in the early 2000′s but now her spotlight is dimming… Dimming so much that she is said to be working » Continued
[NationalEnquirer] This Grammy-winning musician gets such a kick out of impersonating a certain a-list star that he actually poses for photos with the actor’s fans and signs his autograph! The sleazy singer likes to be a bigger jerk than usual when people mistake him for “Mr. Movie Star” – and even undertips on restaurant and bar bills in the hope that the media will pick up the story!
[BlindGossip] There are few things more humiliating than public failure. And it’s got to hurt being pushed out of your own company. For example, back in the mid-1980’s, Steve Jobs was famously demoted and pushed aside at Apple until he finally quit.
But investors don’t play. If you take millions of their dollars and can’t get the job done, they will berate, demote, and marginalize you until you quit or get fired.

[NationalEnquirer] What A-list actor – who’s on the brink of becoming B-list – paid off his actress/ TV personality ex so that she wouldn’t talk about his dark and k*nky secrets? The chatty blonde is about to be very visible on TV, and her manic-depressive former beau wants to make sure she keeps her lips sealed!
[Blind Gossip] Remember that scene in Legally Blonde where Reese Witherspoon goes to get the alibi of Ali Larter’s character? It turns out that the aerobics queen would rather have people think she offed her husband than know that she got liposuction.
With that in mind, let’s talk about this celebrity’s troubled marriage. The public fights will be about egos and money and infidelity. The private fight is the real one. It’s all about the wife’s rampant eating disorder. The wife is purging multiple times every day, and the husband can’t take it anymore. It’s making her ill and it’s completely stressing him out. Most importantly, he doesn’t want that kind of sick behavior around their impressionable child/ren. However, if they talk about the real problem, will the brand be destroyed, and does the fortune go with it? Quite the conundrum. » Continued

They all said “No.” They just weren’t willing to lie for her.
Desperate, the actor called her own mother, to whom she hadn’t spoken in years.
Grandma initially said “No.” Mom offered up a wad of cash. Grandma said “Not enough. I want something else, too.” » Continued
