Leslie Gornstein’s first big foray into entertainment news came as a Los Angeles-based reporter for US Weekly magazine, covering everything from Julia Roberts’ New Mexico wedding to the backstage gossip on "American Idol."

Since then, Gornstein's showbiz features appeared in the Los Angeles Times, LA: The Los Angeles Times Magazine, the New York Post, V-Life, Black Enterprise and Utne Reader.

As the Answer B!tch, E! Online's resident question-and-answer columnist, Gornstein has built a fan base of rabid B!tchlettes, many of whom follow her every syllable during her weekly podcast, and ABC radio segments. (The rest just settle for her Twitter updates, which have earned Gornstein almost 19,000 followers.) Her juicy tell-all on celebrity life, "The A-List Playbook: How to Survive Any Crisis While Remaining Wealthy, Adored, and Most Importantly, Skinny," is available in major bookstores and on Amazon.

"The Dibbuk," a horror film based on a feature Gornstein wrote for the Los Angeles Times, is being developed by Sam Raimi's Ghost House Productions.
