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.

Critic Reviews

"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)

Really great book - buy it!

Where does I'm Your Biggest Fan rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I don't write many reviews about books, but I was so surprised at how much I enjoyed this book that I thought I would give it an A+

What did you like best about this story?

I was looking for pure entertainment - and I got that and a very sincere and funny author!

What does Kate Coyne bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

When you think about Hollywood and entertainment, you think skinny women.... Think "The Devil Wears Prada"..... Kate Coyne is the opposite - she loves to eat and doesn't wear Prada

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

I interview the rich and famous who wear Prada... but I love to eat BACON!

Any additional comments?

buy it! it's a fun read!

Loved it

I loved this book! It was funny, and touching . Her experiences sent great reminders reminding me in this life we all, at one time or other , experience embarrassing and awkward moments, it is what we learn from them that matter. Great book!

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.

So Great!

I loved this book. I have to say that I am not a celebrity fan at all. However, having read Kate Coyne's writing for several decades I found this to be one of her best works. She is hilarious and thoughtful and her writing is so smart. I laughed out loud several times. I highly recommend it for fans and even stodgy ER doctors like myself. The performance was enthusiastic and fun. Thanks Katie for a very enjoyable binge listen to and from work this week. You are awesome.
