Publisher's Summary

The executive editor of People magazine provides an unfiltered and hilarious look at her life alongside the rich and famous as she reveals how being a fangirl led to celebrity close encounters she could only dream of growing up.

From the NY Post's "Page Six" to Good Housekeeping and now People, Kate Coyne has spent years on the front lines of the entertainment industry, feeding our insatiable appetite for celebrity news and gossip. I'm Your Biggest Fan chronicles her journey from red-carpet reporter to upper-level editor and the countless surreal, surprising, and awkward interactions she had with stars along the way. Featuring A-listers such as Michael Douglas (who warned her about tabloid reporting), Tom Cruise (whose behavior will surprise you), and Tom Hanks (who, yes, is wonderful), Coyne's stories reveal insights about pop culture's biggest icons - and the journalist who has followed their every move.

What the Critics Say

"Candid, hilarious, and juicier than any tabloid. Kate Coyne will have you flipping pages and begging for more." (Jenny Mollen, New York Times best-selling author)

"Kate Coyne's funny, warm-hearted stories about her dances with the stars is a delectable, candy-coated treat. From a gut check about Monica Lewinsky to lavish lunches with Wynonna to stern admonishments from Michael Douglas and long days with Kate Gosselin, Coyne emerges as a wry, knowing guide through our celebrity-obsessed culture. If you, like me, have a lifetime subscription to People and a lifelong obsession with boldfaced names, pick this up, and you'll become Kate Coyne's biggest fan." (Jennifer Weiner, best-selling author, Who Do You Love)

    "Awful. Was this really written by an adult?"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Wow. Tom cruises charismatic! Kelly Ripa is funny! Cindy Crawford is pretty! Really wow tell me more of a wise one. This is such a relief I stopped listening after three chapters. And that was a struggle to get that far through it.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The reader, also the writer, sounds like she has marbles in her mouth and does not have enough inflection to make the already dreary stories any more interesting.

    "interesting look at celeb journalism"

    She is an awesome, funny writer and narrator. The stories are fun, but what I liked best are the parts about being an editor. Her bra/Anderson Cooper story was particularly good.

    "Fun read!"

    If you're looking for a book that dishes dirt on celebrities, this isn't it. If you want a light hearted look at the entertainment industry through the author's career, thus is a fun read!
