Why I hate interviewing Hollywood celebrities

[Star-crossed: Heath Ledger and Mary-Kate Olsen]

Show people are thin-skinned, paranoid -- and you gotta deal with their crazy publicists. The moment I heard actor Heath Ledger had died under mysterious circumstances involving one half of the Olsen Twins, I wondered: Was it the "good'' Olsen, Ashley, who I interviewed in 2005 for a story about the twins' booming fashion company? Or was it the "bad'' one -- Mary-Kate, whose once-poor health caused speculation (which she denied) that she had an illicit drug problem. Turns it, it's Mary-Kate.
