Paulina Jayne Isaac

Summary

Paulina’s obsession with pop culture became apparent in college when she followed the 2014 Oscars race with the same concentration most people reserve for presidential races. When the associate editor isn’t writing and editing the front pages of Us Weekly, she can be found in her new town of East Brunswick, New Jersey, cooking an Instagrammable dinner (follow her @paulinajayne15!). The teen drama fanatic loves to discuss One Tree Hill (Naley is her #relationshipgoals), Riverdale (long live #Bughead) and Gilmore Girls (she’s obvi #TeamJess). Her other favorite things include red wine, skincare routines and Disney Channel original movies (in that order).

Work or writing background leading to expertise

Paulina works as an associate editor at Us Weekly where she handles anything from writing about celebrity couples to finding pics of stars being “Just like Us.” When it comes to celebrity and entertainment news, TV is her main passion and she’s always up-to-date on what to watch and where to watch it.

Education

She was a journalism major and sociology minor at Temple University in The City of Brotherly Love. Go Owls!

Work history

Post-college, Paulina began interning at Us Weekly before landing her first full-time gig writing for the entertainment websites Life & Style, In Touch and Closer Weekly as an editorial assistant. After almost two years of being the team’s Taylor Swift and Grey’s Anatomy expert, she switched gears and started at Viacom as an associate social producer for the hit show Younger.

While working with Hilary Duff felt like exactly what dreams were made of, she decided to come full-circle and return to Us Weekly as an associate editor tackling the Loose Talk, Hot Pics, Love Lives and Hot Hollywood pages of the mag.

The coolest moment of her career thus far was definitely spotting Zac Efron (cough Troy Bolton) at a red carpet event and becoming so starstruck that, for the first (and only) time in her life, she was at a loss for words.
