Morning Brew – Wed. Oct. 10: Beth Ditto’s memoir released, you can buy Brittana’s tissues

Good morning!

I’m psyched to see Gossip tonight — and also that Beth Ditto‘s memoir, Coal to Diamonds, is finally published! Now you and me can read it over the weekend and reconvene to discuss.

Great news! If you have $2000, you can buy Brittana’s break-up tissue box.
