How an anonymous celebrity gossip account went from a lockdown project to one of HBO’s newest shows.
If you somehow missed the rise of the Instagram celebrity gossip account, Deuxmoi, then you’ve missed something.
This mystery account has gained 1.5 million subscribers, a new podcast and a novel called Anon pleasewhich was a joint effort between Deuxmoi and the author of They would like to be usJessica Goodman.
If you thought a book written by a gossip account was weird, then buckle up, because HBO will now be producing an hour-long drama series based on that same book. But what is the book? It is based on the experiences of the creator of Deuxmoi while managing the account.
Let me tell you, this account has become so popular because it regularly hits the spot with its hot tea. It shattered Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez’s reunion, and Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s demise, after all.
Insiders who leak secrets may be anonymous, but there is no doubt that they are real insiders. It’s basically real life Gossip Girl situation – and absolutely a sight I would watch.
Who is Twome?
It’s honestly the biggest mystery of all, and it would be the hottest tea if it leaked. What we do know is that she’s a New York-based woman who started gaining traction for her content in 2020.
How did Deuxmoi become famous?
According to a vanity lounge profile on her (anonymously, of course), Deuxmoi was an anti-boredom project during lockdown – but then she started asking her followers for their personal celebrity stories, and people delivered.
One of those stories ended up being a titillating look at Leonardo DiCaprio’s sex life from someone who was allegedly one of Jonah Hill’s exes — and there was no turning back.
But really, insider gossip about the private lives of celebrities? I don’t care who you are, it’s hard to resist.
