While pop culture and finance might seem completely unrelated, one website is bringing them together to help educate people about their money. Jean talks with Caroline Waxler, managing editor of MainStreet.com, about how—and why—the website merges current events and celebrity news with personal finance insights.
At MainStreet.com, which is part of TheStreet.com Network, Caroline says readers may find coverage of topics such as a high-profile celebrity divorce, but they'll also learn about the importance of prenuptial agreements. If a celebrity makes headlines for not wearing his seat belt while driving, visitors will get all the gossip plus a lesson on reducing auto insurance costs. "It'll be silly and mass market, but I think it'll be fun, and I hope people will learn something," she says.
