Paper Magazine Talks to Creator of Celebrity Tea Account DuexMoi

*Started off as a lifestyle blog account in 2013 with an Instagram added as well.

*Site didn't really take off, but the creators kept it up because they did have quite a few followers. Started posted a few celeb tidbits and blind items here and there.

*Site started to take off in March during the beginning of quarantine, when they asked followers to send in any experiences they had with celebs, and got a huge response.

*They get about 300-500 story submissions per day.

*As the site has become more popular, unfortunately people have started submitting fake stories and fandoms started sending fake stories as part of stan wars.

*Has gotten some tips that they think are clearly from PR people. Usually can tell the fake fan stories, but sometimes posts them anyway for entertainment value.

*Won't post stories if they are too sad, like about substance abuse or family situations.

*Wants to focus more on the silly mundane celeb tidbits, like their coffee order, and not the salacious stuff that CDAN focuses on.

*Says the celebs who seem to generate the nicest fan encounters are people like Luke Wilson, Steve Carrell, Pink, Kim Kardashian, Drew Barrymore, Adam Sandler, the Hadids, Julianne Moore.

*Has recieved more than a few negative encounters about Leslie Mann, Marisa Tomei, and David Schwimmer(who they call Rude Ross because he does *NOT* like people approaching him to talk about Friends) and Mila Kunis. But does say sometimes it could just be a case of a celeb having a bad day.

*Working on starting an archive of stories (I don't know if this is the paid option they've been hinting at on IG or not.)
