Dear Gossips,

I keep calling it the Mary Lindo. That’s the Lindo Wing at St Mary’s Hospital in London where Princess Catherine will give birth to Big G’s sibling. And where press and royal TwiHards have been gathered for days. It could be any time now. Which is why I was happy to get out of the country before it happened. Because apparently as soon as the child is born, every nutter from all over the kingdom pilgrims over to the capital to celebrate, clogging up an already busy city. My friend Omid hilariously clarified that, “Even the medium crazies will be coming”. I’ve interviewed a full crazy. Her entire house, wall to wall, was jammed with royal memorabilia. You know, like the plates with the Queen’s face on them? Then she built a separate add-on dedicated to all her Diana items.

So they’re waiting. And some people thought it would be this weekend. But if it had been this weekend, the child would have had to share the spotlight with Bruce Jenner who dominated every headline after his incredible interview with Diane Sawyer. The spare did not want to share. Already the spare knows to fight for every moment of his own. His? Yes. I’m predicting boy, called Arthur. You?

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

Check out Penelope Cruz this weekend in Rome on the set of Zoolander 2. Apparently she plays a cop. Like a cop who’s a hybrid of Uma Thurman in Kill Bill and Oops Britney? Whatever. She is wearing the sh-t out of that leather jumpsuit. And her hair. One of the best heads of hair in Hollywood. Full Story

For a movie that features a protagonist who boned two members of the same family, The Age of Adaline is incredibly boring. There’s so much potential drama to fuel the story of a woman who doesn’t age, and who, it is implied, has left a string of lovers spanning a century behind her, but Adaline is hell-bent on being the least interesting version of that story, more interested in presenting the titular Adaline (Blake Lively, in her first role since 2012’s Savages) as a proper lady who has weathered the century unchanging. Full Story

It was reported last week that Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk were hanging out all week. They went to a play together. Apparently it’s nothing serious. Just friends, for now. But they were also both in Washington for the White House Correspondents’ Dinner on Saturday night. Full Story

London Marathon yesterday. There was a Beckham in the race. It was Romeo. He ran in the children’s race for charity, cheered on by his parents and two brothers, all of them wearing Team Romeo t-shirts. The children’s race is 3 miles. So juuuust under 5km. Romeo completed it 18 minutes 54 seconds. Full Story

After blasting the UN Security Council for its inaction in Syria, Angelina Jolie returned home to Los Angeles yesterday, accompanied by Maddox and her brother, James Haven. She was informed, she was passionate, she was angry, but will she be effective? The effort is there, totally. But these are people driven by their own special interests – special interests that are even more selfish and self-serving than the special interests she’s normally surrounded by in Hollywood. Full Story

Mad Men Season 7 Episode 11 recap Yes, we’ve done it before. We’ve seen this go down – the passion and ticking clock and the corralling of clients. I got just as excited this time as I did back then. I wanted to see the excitement and adrenaline start to flow like it did years ago when they snuck out of Sterling Cooper under cover of night. Full Story

Game of Thrones Season 5, Episode 3 recap At the beginning of Game of Thrones there were a lot of characters spread across a vast land, all with different motivations. Now, five seasons into the story, there are still a lot of characters and the land is even vaster, but the motivations have narrowed down to one thing: Vengeance. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Yesterday (over afternoon tea at The Langham – because what else do you talk about over finger sandwiches?), Lorella and I exchanged anecdotes about our favourite subject: Elvis. This is one of the bonds of our friendship. Years ago we discovered that we both went through a period of Elvis Obsession when we were about 12 years old. Which is how we became Elvis scholars. It’s almost embarrassing the amount of random sh-t we know about Elvis because we’ve read so many Elvis biographies.

And then it just so happened that Priscilla and Lisa Marie were in Vegas yesterday for the opening of Graceland Presents ELVIS: The Exhibition, The Show, The Experience. F-ck. Do you know Lorella and I both had early copies of Priscilla’s memoir Elvis & Me, the best book ever? I can’t find mine anymore because my parents kept moving.  Read Full Intro

I know I don’t have to rehash this for you, the Johnny Depp week. And how they’ve turned that around in just 5 days. From “missing” and a “mess” to, oh, he might win an Oscar. Do women ever get the same courtesy? Fine. I won’t turn this isn’t a feminist crusade. Full Story
