Over the last several months, media and politics website LA Observed has closely followed the turmoil at the Los Angeles Times during which several long time staffers and editors have quit and others have been encouraged to apply for buy outs to leave their jobs.
Early this morning Your Mama received an email message from a gay rabbi in Vermont that LA Observed posted an unnofficial list of staffers who have applied for buyouts. Included on the list is Ruth Ryon, the patron saint of celebrity real estate gossips who created the very popular Hot Properties column in 1984 and has been providing the dee-lishush dish on celebrity real estate transactions ever since.
Miz Ryon paved the way for real estate reporters and gossips like Your Mama who salivate, savor and snicker about big real estate deals and record breaking prices and should her application for buyout be accepted by the higher ups, her presence on the scene will be greatly missed.
And yes, children, Your Mama really did first learn of this buy out bizness from a gay rabbi in Vermont.
