"Veteran muckraker Mark Ebner of "Hollywood, Interrupted" has a knack for producing beautiful writing from ugly subjects. Scientology, pit bull fighting, celebrity scandals, scam artists... you name it, he's investigated it." - Xeni Jardin,

"Ebner is like the Patti Smith of Scientology-bashing - he was doing it before it was cool and inspired legions."

"The best investigative journalist since Hunter S. Thompson." - Paul Gallagher,

"There's only one legitimate investigative journalist that works in the entertainment industry these days: Mark Ebner." -

"Ebner terrorizes Hollywood by running the best industry website anywhere" -

SET YOUR TIVOS: EBNER ON VH1, Monday, 4/17, 9pm EDT

The one-hour special is called “Hollywood Blackmail” and I’m featured on-air in the segment on Hollywood, Interrupted’s favorite dildo dude, Girls Gone Wild goon, Joe Francis!


I also field produced for this show, so there will be a potpourri of HI usual suspects on board.
And that’s not all!
Tagged to the premiere of this VH1 special, I’ll be posting the story you WON’T see on VH1, or even NBC Dateline for that matter. Welcome to Ebner’s kill-file…
Coming Monday:
Six Degrees of Paris Hilton:
How a Crew of Royal Screw-Ups Took Down A-List Hollywood

    Sigh…I guess you’re here to stay then. I guess I just expected something of higher quality to come out of FesteringAss (as ridiculous as that sounds given its name). When I can find VH-1 style hack celebrity journalism all over the internet, I suppose I imagined that Tucker and co. would go for something more original.
    But on the plus side…I can just not come to this page anymore. Oh well, I gave it a shot. Just not my thing.

    Dear “Anonymous” – I thought you said that you weren’t going to come to this page any more. Caught you peeking. Oops. Welcome back.

  5. Manuel says:

    Was it my imagination or was the “How a Crew of Royal Screw-Ups Took Down A-List Hollywood” story, previously posted on the site some days ago?

  6. Mark Ebner says:

    Manuel — The “How a Crew of Royal Screw-Ups” story will be posted as continuing reportage. To get up to speed, please refer to the original Radar story found here:
    Thanks for checking in…

    I just wanted you to know that I will no longer be visiting this page either. At least until the next time I visit this page to announce I will no longer visit this page because I can’t possibly be distracted by your vacuous pursuits while Angelina Jolie is saving Africa and Tom Cruise is working so hard at his three-day heroin detox program. As if I could be so shallow.

  8. I think that Mark does great work and has broken the Paris Hilton / Joe Francis / Darnell Riley story. It is his cutting edge journalism that puts to the reader the off beat news that goes beyond the biased corporate main stream. I can’t wait for the shows next week!

  9. HATERS! If your a journalist and someone knows your name, your doing something right. I LIKE the site Mark and i’ll keep visiting. I will be tuning in tomorrow if I don’t work late. I like how all the people who aren’t going to visit your site anymore feel the need to comment. Fuck the hater, keep up the good work.

    Love the site. Keep up the great work and I will be checking the show out tonight!
