If you couldn’t care less about what Lindsay Lohan has done now, or the Real Housewives of Wherever, then you’ve come to the right place.
Miss Ntertainment is Nadia Neophytou, a Professional Name-Dropper, who interviews musicians and movie stars, watches theatre and TV, reads books and her iPad – all to keep on top of the entertainment world, beyond just the latest gossip headlines.
Born in Benoni, the same little town from which South African Oscar-winning actress Charlize Theron hails, Nadia has been a journalist for a over a decade, which makes her sound old, but really she’s only just getting started. A South African in both attitude and accent, she moved to New York City in late 2010 on a dream and a wish to have lunch with Meryl Streep. She’s interviewed the likes of Oprah (faaaabuuulousss), Forest Whitaker (insightful), Hugh Jackman (always a gentleman), Sarah-Jessica Parker (Carrie!), Joaquin Phoenix (not as scary as you think) and yes, Meryl Streep (although it was over brownies and not lunch, but, as mentioned before, she’s only getting started). She’s covered the Cannes Film Festival, the Oscars, Sundance, the Toronto International Film Festival and San Diego Comic Con.
Her work has appeared in the Mail and Guardian, The Times of London, City Press, GQ, Marie Claire and the Sunday Times. She reports regularly for Eyewitness News, a major news network in South Africa, and writes a weekly column for Destiny Connect.
So, for entertainment news worth knowing, stick around.
