FBLA 20 Questions: GirlsTalkinSmack.com

kim.gifFBLA talks to the dishiest girls of online celebrity dish: GirlsTalkinSmack.com’s Kim (pictured. kinda) and Tiff, who inform us that even though they don’t get their own hands inky for the news, papers aren’t dead; satellite radio isn’t all that and Josh Holloway, apparently, both maxes and relaxes.

1. What newspapers do you read?

Kim: Newspapers? I honestly don’t really read anything made of paper, it’s SO 1999 (joking, of course). Well, I read my local newspaper (which is the Bakersfield Californian) once in a while. And I love mags like Allure, Elle, Vogue and Lucky.

Tiff: I actually read the New York Times online, and go through MSNBC’s headlines, other than that, I don’t read actual papers. I prefer television news and gossip blogs.

2. Which ones do you move your lips to while reading?

Kim: All of the above.

Tiff: I don’t really move my lips while I read, I think I read too fast for that.

3. Which Web sites (other than FBLA, of course) are on your favorites bookmark?

Kim: Well, my laptop got wiped out a virus a few weeks ago so I’m still in the progress of getting things back to normal. I’m always reading PoponthePop.blogspot.com , TabloidWhore.blogspot.com and PopBytes.com. They’re the real cream of the crop if you ask me; they stand out more as online magazines than blogs. Also fashion related sites like StyleBites.blogspot.com, Nitrolicious.com and MyFashionLife.com. Other than that I’m hanging out at IdolForums.com or TheFashionSpot.com, or working on my own sites because I have, like, a million of them, ya know?

Tiff: I always end up at Pink is the New Blog Livejournal, and MySpace every day.
