I think it’s the contributors and content. If the contributors were more established in their areas, it could work; however, these three are not. You’d think Julia would come closest as she actually does have a dating column in TONY, but rather than focusing on dating, she instead feels that posting a million and a half photos of herself in various kissy-face poses will suffice. Meghan seems to try and for the most part, leaves her personal life out of her posts, from what I’ve seen; it’s unfortunate that she’s lassoed herself to this venture, as I think she could do somewhat well in this area. As for Mary… is she still a “stylist?” Does she still make those bags? How do you not know how to spell Karl Lagerfeld’s name correctly?
If they stayed relatively on-topic and knew what they were talking about, and actually knew what they were trying to be (entertainment? Journalism? PICK ONE), it could work. They’ll be through with this by the end of this year at the latest.
