's Warrick and
' Jenny have nothing on this shocking exit. After eight years of breaking some of television's biggest news, Michael Ausiello is bidding TV Guide adieu.
Now, I don't know how many of you (outside of my proud momma and sisters!) pay attention to magazine mastheads, but Mike and I actually first started working together back in 1998, when I trolled the sets of
As the World Turns
One Life to Live
for "scoop" at
Soaps in Depth
. (Rule No. 1: No news tidbit about Roger Howarth is too trivial!)
I'm excited for Mike and his new opportunity. I hate him for leaving, oh yes I do, but I am also excited for him. And if you wonder why my eyes are red in the video I'm shooting later with David Cook (
, Ausiello-style), it's because of this news.
But I guess if you are going to gain a "frenemy," why not have it be one of your best friends, right?
