The studios control everything, managing their actors careers and massaging the image they present to the public. To do this, they need the press onboard, and the one aspect they cant control -- gossip! This means the most powerful woman in Hollywood is Paige Turner, the celebrity columnist for one of Americas most-read papers. Known for her outrageous headgear, Paige is often called The Mad Hatter -- a nickname with a double meaning, since everyone wants to be invited to her publicity party. When a more salacious tabloid mentality creeps into the newsstands, though, Paige sees some of her ground being threatened. And the studios see a roguish new element that might not want to play ball. At the top of this salacious new art form is Harry Richards, The Tabloid Dick, the guy with the snooping peepers who keeps getting the scoop. What begins as a war of words ends up being a knock-down, drag-out fight for the number one slot as the biggest rumor monger in entertainment!
