THE REAL REEL | Catt Sadler Says Bye to E! – Popdust
I’m embarrassed. I am embarrassed to admit that I absolutely love watching E Entertainment, (E!). It doesn’t get more relaxing or indulgent for me, than stepping on to the treadmill at the gym, popping on E!’s Daily Pop, and zoning out to celebrity gossip with Catt Sadler and her co-hosts. It’s one of my dirty secrets. My Facebook and Instagram posts are political, subversive, and fight the good fight…but sometimes I am just walking, indoors, in beautiful Portland Oregon, on a treadmill, binging on E!
And now I can’t do that because Catt Sadler is leaving. Why do I or anyone else care that Catt Sadler is leaving? This isn’t really news, except that it is making headlines. Why does the NY Times care? They care, because people like me care; again, embarrassing, but true. Let me tell you why it’s so embarrassing that I care (if it’s not already obvious) and then let me defend my Sadler obsession. It’s embarrassing because Sadler “reports” (if that’s what you want to call it), on celebrity gossip. She tells mere mortals like me, who famous people are sleeping with, divorcing, getting pregnant by, staring in which film, about their make ups, break ups, and sometimes what they had for breakfast. I am embarrassed to care about this stuff…but I do. I love getting lost in celebrity lives. I also love watching Catt. Catt is 43 years old, divorced twice, and a mother of two and while she is perfectly manicured and mainstream in many ways…she is just a smidge edgy. With her tattoos and her divorces, I can assume she isn’t judging me and she isn’t contributing to the Kelly Ripa “all my ducks are in a row, perfectly married, perfectly feminine” vibe. Yes, Ms. Sadler is likely full of botox,
