Broward Palm Beach New Times voted Gossip Extra the area’s Best Website of 2012!
The eagerly-awaited yearly Best of special recognizes dozens of local people, businesses and non-profits picked either by the paper’s staff or readers.
Sometimes, the picks are real props. Sometimes, it’s to make fun.
Either way, we’ll take it, especially since — embarrassingly – no other news organization in Palm Beach County got even the smallest mention.
In picking Gossip Extra, the weekly alternative tabloid says:
This site, run by renegade Palm Beach Post reporter turned gossip blogger Jose (that’s “Joe-ZAY”) Lambiet, is way more than just silly pictures of the Kardashians — though they’re on there too. While he’s quick to pick up on South Florida celebrity news, Lambiet is also constantly rooting through the business of the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office, keeping it honest when, say, a man robs a pawn shop with an assault rifle stolen from a sheriff’s deputy. For scoops on the South Florida scene, Gossip Extra is the place to go.
And Gossip Extra‘s in good company: Wellington’s Vanilla Ice, Best B-list Celebrity; West Palm Beach’s Norton Museum of Art, Best Art Museum; Palm Beach DramaWorks, Best Theater Space; Jupiter’s Guanabanas, Best Bar to Take Out-of-Towers; DUI killer John Goodman, Best Rich Guy to Ridicule; and Delray Beach’s The Office, Best Palm Beach County Restaurant.
