Deep Glamour Launches… So That’s Where Kate Coe Went!

23211418.jpgKate Coe sends us this (totally impersonal) form e-mail:

As of today , Virgina Postrel (The Atlantic, author of The Substance of Style) and I can be found blogging at Deep Glamour.net. We’ll be writing about glamour, allure and all the seductive images that bombard us in the media and culture and what they really mean. We’ll have exclusive interviews with mysterious and important figures like The Manolo, Simopn Doonan and others. Please feel free to post about our launch and link to us. We can promise provocative, witty posts with Virginia’s astute analysis and my tart commentary on everything from Barack Obama to Bravo’s Top Design, as well as brilliant writing from guest editors not found all over the internet.

As Postrel explains in DG’s intro, the blog is both an offshoot of the research she’s doing for a new book and an excuse to work with Kate. Having worked with Kate before we can understand the draw.

Congrats.

Kate Coe Is An Anti-Semite With Ties To the CIA, Nude Britney Spears And Rupert Murdoch

adfasda.jpegWe’re kinda pissed: In all our months of working together, not once has Fishbowl LA co-editor Kate Coe regaled us with stories of Ann Coulter slumber parties and CIA-operative coffee klatches. Not once!

The shame of having to read about all of Coe’s exciting shenanigans on someone else’s blog (though, I guess we’re not that unused to getting scooped because people, really, should have tipped us off better).

Well, Ms. Coe, this half of FBLA awaits an apology – or at the very least Rupert’s autograph (preferably on an unmarked check).

*Not Kate Coe. But, then, you knew that.

Industry Execs Catch Viewers In Web

RDM.jpgIn the latest issue of Fast Company, some chick named Kate Coe interviews five TV innovators — Reginald Hudlin, Andrew Beecham, Lauren Zalaznick, Ronald D. Moore, and Robert Greenblatt — most of whom have used the Internet to enhance and promote their shows.

Moore, the exec producer of Battlestar Galactica, seemed especially enamored of the Web:

If I Were A Cowgirl, Yiddle Diddle Diddle Diddle Diddle Dum

In a delightful bit of cross-pollination, our own Kate Coe has a piece in the Jewish Journal today about appearing in the Billings West High School senior class of 1971 production of Fiddler on the Roof.

The Montana native explains that her virtually Jew-less school recruited a local literature prof to “teach the cowboys and cheerleaders about the joys of Yiddish.”

The results sound adorable. And clearly prepared Coe for her future life in Hollywood:

During that month of rehearsal, the cast and crew formed a little community within the school. Jocks, majorettes, student council members and debaters were nothing to us — we were the chosen people. We wished each other mazel tov and shalom when passing in the halls. We sat at our own table in the cafeteria, and someone got the bright idea of asking the lunch ladies if the pigs in blankets were kosher. We must have been insufferable.

Mazel Tov on such a work, you mensch, you. And keep an eye out for the other Fishbowler’s work to appear in Catholic Times.

How I Got That Story: Chris Lee, Kate Coe on Theresa Duncan

0s3.jpg

Chris Lee, LA Times writer and FBLA’s Kate Coe exchanged notes on their Theresa Duncan/Jeremy Blake stories.

When did you first get the story?

CL:I got it on Monday (7/23) but wrote and reported most of it Tuesday morning. Daily Calendar goes to the printer at 3:00 pm so it was a scramble.

KC: I pitched it to the Weekly the minute I learned she died.

Had the two stories always been the plan?

CL: No. I was heading down to San Diego to cover Comic-con the day the first one ran and there was no plan for a folo. But info kept on coming my way, some really hot stuff, and my editor made the decision to keep me on the story.

FBLA’s Kate Coe Lays Theresa Duncan Myths To Rest

07_37_37news3.jpgIn a truly engrossing tale of a mind unraveling, FBLA’s own Kate Coe sets the record straight about Theresa Duncan.

Duncan, a game designer/writer who committed suicide last month — followed by her artist boyfriend Jeremy Blake, is being remembered as a sexy woman who had taken Hollywood and New York by storm.

But, Kate, remembers a slightly different reality, as she writes in the L.A. Weekly:

In a written exchange in 2006, Duncan and I discussed how people create personal facades. She wrote, “I said I had the last credits of my B.A. on resumes when I did not. I shave a couple years off my age sometimes, which is the only thing I regret.” In the same exchange, she explained that having arrived in Hollywood, “I tell the truth about all these things all the time. The fantasy is handled in my day job. Plus, my profile is raised and I don’t want any fodder for making me look unreliable when I have to handle large crews and budgets.”

In the end, Kate writes, the image Duncan created for herself couldn’t make up for the reality of a troubled soul.

Her blog was called The Wit of the Staircase, the literal translation of the French l’esprit d’escalier. It means a perfect rejoinder that comes too late.

Join Fishbowl LA’s Kate Coe at a Poolside Chat–Who Let the Blogs Out?–tonight at 7 pm at the W Hotel in Westwood. Part of the LA Film Festival, this lively panel is sponsored by Film Independent.

L.A.’s blogistocracy will flap their gums about the on-line merging of celebrity, industry news, and popular culture, and the rise of the blogger as the arbiter of information in modern day Los Angeles. Guests include:

Anne Thompson (Thompson on Hollywood), moderator
Kevin Roderick (L.A. Observed)
Sasha Stone (Awards Daily)
Jeffrey Wells (Hollywood Elsewhere)

Perez Hilton was rumored to be participating. Let’s hope he shows to liven things up.

LAT Web Site To Get Botox

mered.jpgFBLA co-Fishie Kate Coe schooled public relations folks at the PR Newswire Media Coffee this morning and came back with a bit of gossip from latimes.com Executive Editor Meredith Artley.

“Meredith said they’ll soon be doing ‘a Botox procedure’ for the Web site,” Coe said.

Expect more white space and an easier-to-navigate page. Once that’s complete, they’re going to “do a throw-gas-on-it-and-light-a-fire redesign of the entire Web site.”

The site will also likely make better use of citizen journalism: During the Hollywood Hills fire, the photo that lead the online edition’s front page came from a reader.

While there was much gnashing of teeth about it internally, Artley realizes it’s the way of the future.

No Such Thing As Bad PR

prwkk.jpgWe love PR people. They’re always dressed nicely. They usually smell good. And they gobble up interview questions, like this one in PRWeek for FBLA Co-Editor Kate Coe:

PRWeek: Since you and Mayrav Saar took over as co-editors of FishbowlLA, you’ve transformed it from a good and entertaining blog to an LA media-community essential. How did you get involved with the site?

Indeed, Kate, how did we do that? For more, find out here.

Off the Media: Clever Headlines, Kate Coe and Giuliani

giuliani_to_run.jpgOK, we may be giving too much significance to just one segment on this week’s On the Media, but since it’s sister-blogger Kate Coe from our own FishbowlLA, we can’t help but crow. OTM’s Bob Garfield interviews Kate about her story for the L.A. Weekly on how little coverage a black-on-white Halloween crime received.

What also stood out this week was these wince-inducing headlines on the OTM Web site:

  • “Clink Stained Wretch” (on San Francisco reporter Josh Wolf’s imprisonment for refusing to turn over video he took of a demonstration).
  • “A Zion in the Sand” (on whether the pro-Israel lobby is really preventing honest debate on Israel).
  • “Murder Ink” (on LA Times crime reporter Jill Leovy‘s quest to cover the crimes in The Homicide Report).”
  • “Twist of Hate” (for Kate’s story).

Last week (which we haven’t covered, yet) there was a nice piece reminding us about how disliked Giuliani was before he became “America’s Mayor” on 9/11 (of which The Onion today names him president). A lot us remember when Rudy was not the beloved rock of 9/11, but rather an overly-controlling, press-loathing, distrustful, nightclub hating … Remember? Well, OTM notes that Mr. Presidential Candidate kid-from-Brooklyn might have to face some uncomfortable questions, again.
