Young, pretty, rich, TV, movie starts divorcing add up to a Dick Stolley dream cover

Young, pretty, rich, TV, movie starts divorcing add up to a Dick Stolley dream cover: People is rushing out (four-days-early) this week’s issue
for folks like my friend Lena Basha, our company’s in-house volunteer
Hollywood gossip maven (she’s been so on-top of this forever). In the
words of one of my magazine heroes, Richard Stolley, founding editor of
People (and many other accolades), “Young is better than old. Pretty is
better than ugly. Rich is better than poor. TV is better than music.
Music is better than movies. Movies are better than sports. Anything is
better than politics. (and, later added) Nothing is better than the
celebrity dead.” I’m guessing Dick, who’s still at Time, would add,
“Young, pretty, rich, TV, movie stars divorcing are better than
anything but a dead celebrity.”
