XOXO Gossip Girl

Maury Paul was the first  journalist to write under the byline of Cholly Knickerbocker as society editor and writer of a syndicated daily gossip column. The column discussed the lives of the metrapolitan 400 or social elite of New York City. This history can be seen today on the CW’s hit television show Gossip Girl.

” Its members often seem to live for the exhibitionist mention of their doings and relations by social chroniclers and gossip columnists” (C. Wright Mills)
