FishbowlNY editor Amanda Ernst joined Jason Boog of GalleyCat and AgencySpy‘s Matt Van Hoven on the mediabistro.com Morning Media Menu today to talk celebrity scandals in the media.

The two biggest stories of the day were actress Mackenzie Phillip‘s new memoir “High on Arrival,” which chronicles her long incestuous relationship with her father, The Mamas & The Papas founder John Phillips. Phillips has appeared on Oprah Winfrey‘s talk show and the “Today” show this morning and Jason, Matt and Amanda wondered how these dirty secrets remained under wraps for so long.

Also discussed: news that celeb couple Eric Dane and Rebecca Gayheart had sued Gawker Media for publishing a sex tape featuring them and another woman a few weeks ago. What implications will this suit have on freedom of the press? And are the claims of copyright infringement going to stand up under legal scrutiny?

Lastly, there has been talk of Hallmark launching a celebrity Web site that only features good news. While this new site might become an outlet for publicity hungry flacks, it will also give be platform for those things that sell celebrity magazines so well: celebrity baby and wedding photos.
