Today is the first day of the rest of #SabuWeek, kittens! I’ll bet you’re excited! Yes, for the next five days we will feature one article a day on the social-climbingest, hottub-hoppingest snitch since Judas Iscariot. We promise crunchy tidbits of actual news as well as wall-to-wall lulz. Why? Because we need to buy a new house to go with those new boots and jacket the hate-clicks have already brought us, that’s why. As they used to say on the Thunderbirds, Stand By For ACTION!
