Tap Into Black Hollywood for Sister 2 Sister

Unlike the gossip and innuendo rampant in the blogosphere, Sister 2 Sister routinely gets its information from the stars themselves. Whether Halle Berry‘s ex-husband Eric Benet was denying a reported sex addiction or Tamar Braxton and hubby Vince Herbert were dishing about their upcoming reality show, it was S2S that often got stars to open up when other publications couldn’t.

“Our mission is to try to teach,” explained senior editor Ericka Boston. “So, we’ll talk to the entertainers about the lessons that they’ve learned from whatever experiences they’ve gone through, and it’s more so about achieving an understanding, as opposed to just fishing for a headline.”

Although there’s little room in the print magazine for outside Q&As with celebs, freelancers can still pitch their entertainment stories to But, “Be prepared to include multimedia in your pitch,” Boston advised.
