Meet Lainey:

Lainey Lui (@LaineyGossip) isn’t looking to impress anyone, especially celebrities. Co-host of CTV’s THE SOCIAL, ETALK Senior Correspondent, and scribe of the immensely popular celebrity gossip blog, LaineyGossip.com, Lainey does what she does for one reason – to provide a gossip education to the Canadian public.

The Toronto-born, self-proclaimed gossip maven got into the gossip game in a very roundabout way. What started as an email to two friends grew to a website with millions of readers from around the world. As friends told friends about Lainey’s non-sycophantic email updates, she received so many requests to get on her mailing list that her server crashed.

More than one million readers and Twitter followers read LaineyGossip.com every month, making it a leading international celebrity gossip source. Recognizing Lainey’s talent, she joined the ETALK team in 2006.

A graduate of the University of Western Ontario majoring in French and History, Lainey lives in Toronto with her husband and beagles. She is a consultant for Covenant House, which offers shelter and services for homeless youth.

Meet Kathleen:

Kathleen Newman-Bremang has produced and written for some of the biggest media outlets in North America: Viacom (MTV) and Bell Media (MuchMusic and CTV). Most recently, she was a celebrity and entertainment producer on Canada's #1 daytime talk show The Social for six seasons. She co-wrote the 2018 MuchMusic Video Awards and was a part of the 2018 eTalk: Live at the Oscars special team.

While at Bell, her side hustle included contributing to various publications like LaineyGossip, Cosmo, Elle Canada, Corduroy Magazine and The Kit. Now, she's the sole Staff Writer at Refinery29 Canada. She has a journalism degree from Ryerson University. She lives in Toronto.
