Work or writing background leading to expertise
Laura Rizzo is obsessed with everything pop culture. Luckily, she found a perfect fit for her skills and passion working as a digital writer for Life & Style. If she’s not binge-watching reality shows like The Bachelor and Vanderpump Rules, you can find her investigating the health, fitness and beauty routines of her favorite celebrities.
Laura joined the team at Life & Style in November 2018 and keeps busy writing dozens of articles every week on everything from Kim Kardashian’s latest look to why everyone suddenly started drinking celery juice. She knows every inch of Bachelor Nation, but if you asked Chris Harrison about her, he would probably say, “I don’t know who that is.” A girl can dream, right?
In addition, she frequently covers the glitz and glamour of awards shows — from red carpets to all of the most meme-able moments. She has years of experience interviewing celebs and other personalities about their latest projects. Some of the highlights for her include comedian Adam Devine, Top Chef’s Nilou Motamed, former Bachelorettes Rachel Lindsay and Ali Fedotowsky and celebrity trainer Alex Fine.
Laura attended Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, Michigan. (Yes, it’s a real city!) She graduated with honors after earning a bachelor’s degree in media studies and marketing. Throughout college, she held various internships at radio and television stations around the state.
After graduation, Laura began her professional career working as a lifestyle writer for a local ABC station in Michigan under the marketing department. From there, she moved to the east coast and held various jobs across the industry, including roles as a marketing writer and part-time contributor for Elite Daily.
