OMG! US Weekly has stopped covering Paris Hilton.
“When it came down to it, the staff and I felt what I believe a lot of people in America are feeling. Which is just enormous Paris fatigue,” US Weekly Editor Janice Min told The Associated Press on Tuesday.
But it goes further than skipping her release from jail. The magazine made a effort to keep Paris off of every page in the grocery store rag.
“I don’t think,” Min joked, “we even mention the city of Paris.”
That was no easy task, she said, adding US Weekly editors had to comb carefully through every beauty story and every fashion item to make sure there wasn’t an offhand mention of the hotel heiress somewhere.
The irony, of course, is that you’re reading about US Weekly not covering Paris thanks to ABC News. My editor noted that Paris is still on “Page 2” of the Post and Courier. It seems she doesn’t need the tabloids anymore.
