David Carr reports that Jay Penske, the empire-building founder of Mail.com Media Corporation, employer of the former Defamer crew, and recent acquirer of Nikki Finke's blog, has made another high-profile and (probably) expensive hire: Bonnie Fuller, former editor of shiny, gossipy print magazines like Star and Us Weekly. Fuller, who'd recently left a job as editorial director of American Media to start her own online company, has spiked those plans to head up the Penske-owned Hollywood Life, where she'll lord over a dozen employees (she's hiring!) and work to ease the embarrassing shortage of celebrity gossip on the Internet.
