July 3, 1980: For its 52nd anniversary, the Hollywood Women’s Press Club takes a look at the evolution of covering the entertainment industry.  “We did not write scandal," says Harriet Parsons, daughter of columnist Louella Parsons. “We did not write sensational stuff like the fan magazines have done in recent years. We wrote gossip. It was all very whipped cream and upbeat, flattering to the stars.”
