It’s tough being an entertainment journalist. Gavin Prins should know. He’s had to have “quick lunches” with Celine Dion and Charlize Theron before rushing off to attend yet another star-studded event.
When he’s not presenting the celebrity show, Tongelos, he’s chatting his way through the best VIP functions to get the gossip for Rapport. And, puffy-eyed or not, he still manages to stay ahead of the game—he was the first to write about the Joost van der Westhuisen sex-tape scandal and he broke the story on the Oprah Winfrey school.
Luckily he is ethical, still believing in such a thing as “off the record” , which is probably why Oprah invited him to dinner, even after the story broke.
At 33, Prins might not have become the actor he dreamed of becoming as a young boy, but he certainly knows how to walk the red carpet with the best of them.—Cat Pritchard
