Editorial Staff

Jessica Rae, Managing Editor
About Jessica: Your SSS hostess aims to not just tell you the latest noteworthy entertainment news, but to share her personal spin on that information. (And she does it all in a superhero outfit constructed entirely of feather boas, recyclable cardboard boxes, and discarded fortune cookie messages. It’s a unique style.) If you’ve ever wanted a BFF to discuss and discover new TV shows with, it’s time to bookmark the site right now. Find her around the web, like on Twitter @ThisJessicaRae and ShesSmart.com.

Melissa Miller, Contributing Editor
About Melissa: Melissa is a huge TV nerd. The many shows she recaps for Small Screen Scoop only amount to a fraction of the TV shows she watches. She loves all kinds of TV shows, from award-winning fare (hiya, Mad Men) to a few guilty pleasures (looking at you, Real World Road Rules Challenges). When she isn’t plopped in front of the TV absorbed in a fictional world, she is mom to two frequently adorable and sometimes crazy children. She is also almost done with her Masters in Humanities. She loves reading, writing, and hanging out with her equally crazy friends. Follow her on Twitter at @serrae – she loves to talk TV with her fellow TV nerds.

Samantha Tatro, Contributing Writer
Samantha loves comedy in the way that some people love eggs for breakfast – she can watch it every day and never get sick of it. When’s she’s not writing about television, she’s writing hard news stories, watching television, or camping out for Saturday Night Live tickets, all of which are completely normal hobbies. She also enjoys spending time with friends, being in New York City, and walking on the beach with her family and dogs. Find her on twitter: @SamCurrently.

Sharon Tharp
In between swooning over the Salvatore brothers and challenging people to Friends trivia, Sharon is a NYC-based entertainment writer who watches way too much television. She currently covers Dexter for SSS and also writes recaps for Ology.com, HollywoodLife.com and her own blog, thatTVgirl.com. And while she loves her share of reality TV, Sharon considers herself a teeny-bopper at heart and an expert in teen dramas. Follow her on Twitter if you’re down to gush over the latest love triangles. Except if you wanted Joey to end up with Dawson. In that case, you can’t be friends. (Just kiiiiidding.)

Paula Duffy, Contributing Writer
Paula  loves the celeb reality show scene and contributes coverage of The Rachel Zoe Project. Paula is a lawyer with a sports and TV addiction that she indulges by writing for Examiner.com about sports, sports media and the inevitable clashes between athletes and legal system. For her, some of the best reality TV comes from following the Los Angeles Lakers and the legal woes of players.  Paula can be found on Twitter: @jurisdiva and Examiner at examiner.com/sports-in-national/paula-duffy.
