Gossip: Tabloid Tales
Documentary about America's tabloid magazines -- the guilty pleasures that no one wants to admit they read. They've built their empire on rumor, innuendo, gossip and slander, but also on daring to dig deeper than other news reporters in order to get at the truth. The program introduces publicists who protected stars like Ava Gardner and Clark Gable from seeing their antics splashed over the front pages. Viewers also hear from older stars who weren't so protected.
