Taking a look inside People magazine - Kathy Jefcoats

I am addicted to People magazine. From the time I was about 13 or 14, I spent first allowance, then baby-sitting then waitressing money on a copy of the magazine. When I got married, I continued buying it, for richer or poorer, no matter how much money I had at the time. Like I said, it's an addiction. I know so much trivia about people I will never meet it's ridiculous but I can't stay away. I don't smoke, shop a lot or do drugs so it is a vice my husband will have to deal with.

Paparazzi: My friends or foes? - Zach Porter

This action hero most likely plays none other than a tough as nails, hard boiled cop who's not afraid to jump from rooftop to rooftop- moving vehicle to moving vehicle on the expressway at rush hour. So the big celebrity gets to be the hero, the sleazy pack of dogs with cameras around their necks the villains.
