"If you think I'm going to lift the lid on what it is like to be paid to misbehave with celebrities, travel the world and get legless with rock stars; if you hope I'll reveal how gossip columns really operate behind the scenes; if you think I'm going to tell you what Jude Law, Guy Ritchie and Jordan are really like - well, you're right."When the 3AM column first appeared in the "Daily Mirror", it changed the rules. The message behind the column was clear: celebrities were to watch out, because any drunken moves and misdemeanors on their part would be reported and made known to the world the very next day by the all-seeing Jessica and her co-writers Polly and Eva. Gossipy, funny and fabulously indiscreet, "Wicked Whispers" is Jessica Callan's inside account of what life as a 3AM girl was like: the debauched parties, the drunken celebs, the lecherous paparazzi, and the tabloid tricks. But it wasn't all fun all the time. Jessica recounts the sometimes harsh and pressured reality of the job, from getting dumped by boyfriends who couldn't handle her crazy lifestyle to finding herself at the heart of a scandal of her own making.
In the spring of 2000, Jessica Callan had been working on the Daily Telegraph for nearly two years when she was approached by the Mirror's Piers Morgan to launch the new 3AM gossip column. It ushered in a new, less deferential style of celebrity coverage. Since leaving the 3AM column in 2005, Jessica has worked as a freelance writer. Wicked Whispers is her first book and she lives in London
