Lois: Looks like someone woke up
on the right side of the bed this morning.

Chloe: At least l woke up in my own bed.

Chloe: A story about a reporter and her editor

Lois: Okay, so l strayed into the minefield

(Gossips?) splash cold water on my previously nonexistent
personal life.
Make her to be with rigged past?

The phrase is "jump off a precipice" but I think Lois means that she didn't do anything that will cause anyone irreversible harm.

on her managing editor's DieHard battery. Gluttony for love?
No, Chloe means that Lois used sex to get ahead in her career.
