To one special, special moment.

It’s been one year since Coleen Rooney’s tell-all tweet about how she systematically blocked everybody from her private Instagram then created fake stories to test her suspicion that Rebekah Vardy was leaking news about the Rooney family to the tabloids.

I try not to traffic in tabloid gossip because it feels...icky...to be having a laugh with people’s personal business. But in this case, with Coleen Rooney putting it out in public for all to see, I made an exception. And I’m making it again. The story is just too good.

And to wrap up with “It’s...........Rebekah Vardy’s account” was just the perfect finish. She’s a Sherlock Holmes for the internet era.

Do you have a favorite, wild story about a celebrity or public figure that they’ve admitted to / talked about themselves publicly? Again, I don’t want to traffic in gossip, but I know that there are some good ones out there that the people involved have chosen to reveal. That, for me, makes it okay to discuss them.
