No more Jessica at Gawker

CoenJessica Coen is posting her final Gawker items today after two years at the blog. On the way out, she's telling a few (blind-item) tales and maybe holding a match to some bridges. Before going east, Coen lived here and blogged at what was then called The Blueprint: A Girl with a Plan. From today's sign-off:

WHAT Radar staffer, after 20 minutes of small talk, drunkenly asked when we were going to hook up?

WHICH publicist -- whose number I don't even have -- tells magazine editors that I call him for dirt on said editors?

WHAT gossip writer, when he first met me, told me I was "hot" and then asked how much I weighed?
