Lanette 'La La' Espy is an award-winning multimedia journalist, blogger and media maven based in New Jersey. Her editorial work, which focuses on local news, entertainment and features, has appeared in The Record, NorthJersey.com, WBGO 88.3 FM, and more. 

In January 2011, La La founded the entertainment website Ooooooo La La! From celebrity gossip to entertainment news, TV recaps to relationship topics, the blog delivers fresh, engaging content from an informed point of view. Ooooooo La La! has made a splash on social media, catering mostly to women between the ages of 25-34, and her blog has been referenced by Centric TVBossipVH1, and many other credible sites. 

This Rutgers University grad has appeared on TMZ Live!Hot 98.1 FM and OMGossip. With more than 160,000 social media followers, La La has grown her own brand, and she created Blog Like A Boss (where she shares her blog and social media tips to help others grow their blogs and social media presence).  

During her spare time, La La enjoys wine tasting and playing with her yorkie, Maxi. And, as long as she has her daily coffee intake, everyone around her remains safe (lol). 

In the near future, La La looks forward to adding 'Author' to her resume as she's currently working on publishing her first e-book.

"I started Ooooooo La La! 
so I could have a place to voice my own opinions and not have an editor chopping up my writing. Even when others said, "you're just wasting your time with that," I didn't listen to them, and I continued on blogging. Ooooooo La La! is my baby, and I've managed to build up my own brand which is now turning into a small business - all by myself! So, never listen to the doubters. If you have passion, if you're focused, and if you believe in yourself that you can do anything, then you'll succeed!"
