Liz Smith Remembers The Good Old Days Of Gossip Columns

This week, NPR‘s “Morning Edition” is featuring conversations with press agents and gossip columnists. Today features an interview with the “Grand Dame of Dish,” Liz Smith.

In this preview, Smith recalls the beginning of her gossip column writing days in the 1950′s. “There were just wonderful, silly things happening,” she said. “And, you know, then society was slopping over into show business. It wasn’t just society, or what was left. It was also these big movie stars.”
