Alexandra Capotorto

Alexandra Capotorto in the business of writing pop culture-y stuff for two reasons: Britney Spears and Johnny Depp, one to befriend, the other to reproduce with. Figure that out yourselves. Her friends have dubbed her their official "Walking Encyclopedia of Celebrity Knowledge," which she thrives on and abuses to not-so-subconsciously inflate her own ego. Her only regret in life is not getting to E! before Giuliana Rancic and Chelsea Handler, because the latter essentially stole her identity - but they're cool now. Kind of. She's convinced that she could simultaneously win 'The Voice' and an Academy Award in a one year time period, given her fantastic shower-singing and ability to over-dramatize everything, but she'll settle for being a writer. Key word being "settle." She's sarcastic and witty, and takes nothing and no one seriously. She recites lines from movies mid-conversation much to the dismay of her "friends" - but at least she gives them someone to talk about afterward. Most importantly, she holds a B.A. in Print Journalism from Quinnipiac University, but only because her parents forced her to go. She would've preferred slumming it in Beverly Hills as Britney Spears' assistant/BFF.

‘American Idol’ Tries to Make Us Believe the Minaj-Carey War Isn’t For Ratings

Nigel Lythgoe, producer of 'American Idol' (and just about every other FOX reality show), insists that smackdown between Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj was very real and wasn't conjured up by the publicity-hungry suits at the network.
