While I have gotten many far-too-early-in-the-morning calls from east coast reporters looking for statements about this or that, I’ve so far escaped the hounding of gossip mags. J.Sto was not so lucky. We however are so lucky, since she details the conversation for us and spills all the details.

However, since Rita so intelligently observed that I, “seem like a nice girl who is smart for my age,” she will allow me to call her anytime to give her tips.
