LOS ANGELES SENTINEL -- Triumphant is the best word to describe Nina Parker. The successful entertainment journalist has been the face of TMZ and she’s currently a correspondent for “The Insider” on CBS.

Parker was recently honored at the monthly women’s networking event, United We Brunch, sponsored by event-planning firm, United We Function. As a student at San Francisco State University, Parker was the “it” girl on campus and host of her local news station. Post graduation, Parker had an unsuccessful stint in New York, which resulted in her moving back home to San Francisco.

She comments, “I was 23 and very arrogant. I was shocked that things weren’t working out for me in the way I had envisioned. At that time I hadn’t realized that you have to create your own path. I went home with my tail between my legs because I had a lot of people that were rooting for me to fail.”
