Deborah Solomon’s Missing Questions for Josh Schwartz

FBLA stumbled upon one of those missing tapes with the questions that NYT interviewer/fabulist Deborah Solomon really asked Gossip Girl creator Josh Schwartz:

Q: So is Ben Silverman the best hung mogul in Hollywood?

A: No, but he is supersmart.

Q: What’s your sex life like?

A: I go on the Internet and look for mean things that have been written about the shows that I work on.

Q: Has working in Hollywood made you more interested in coprophilia?

A: There’s that, too. My girlfriend is definitely a big proponent of that. I’m more into self-flagellation.

Q: Do you been play with yourself in the writer’s room?

A: Not really. I’m too afraid of getting caught.

Q: How do you ensure that your inane shows will always have an audience–do you pay people to watch?

A: I do. I give a lot back to U.S.C.

(Edward Champion has quite the collection of Solomon’s foibles.)
