Dear Gossips,

Been growing a small crush on Brian Williams for years – mostly because I love it when he’s on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. But now? After his appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon this week?

It’s hard.

For the Gin and Juice, sure. And the Rapper’s Delight before that, fine. But mostly it’s the interview. He is so f-cking great in this interview. One minute Williams is invoking Foxy Brown. The next he’s dropping news anchor phrasing, and all the gravitas that comes with it. News Anchors, ah yes. We’re supposed to take them seriously. We’re ONLY supposed to take them seriously. Most of them, almost all of them, wouldn’t get loose like this for fear that we’ll never again take them seriously.

But I know he knows his sh-t.  Read Full Intro

Stacy Keibler is pregnant. I’m not sure that George Clooney knows this. She might not know if he knows this. So here she is at the ELLE Annual Women In Music celebration in LA last night trying her best to belly-cup her baby bump. This may be a world record. For what? The earliest in her pregnancy that a woman has ever attempted to belly-cup. Full Story

Is James Franco corrupting art?

There’s a new James Franco exhibit at Pace Gallery in New York. It’s a big deal to be at Pace. Which, I suppose, means that your sh-t has to be good. Or at least that’s what it used to mean. Franco’s work is, he claims, an homage to Cindy Sherman’s Untitled Film Stills in which she shot herself in the stereotypical roles relegated to women – the more she produced, the louder her message: cinematically, women continue to be treated as second class citizens. Full Story

This is what I always say about Avril Lavigne: her fan base never grows with her. So she has to keep going back to mining from the 14 and under demo. That’s the only age range that will appreciate –if that’s the word – her new video for the song Hello Kitty, which actually includes this line: “Like a fat kid on a pack of Smarties. Full Story

The Cambridges, William and Catherine, continued their tour of Australia today in Adelaide where they got down with the young people, visiting a skate park and the youth community centre. Part of the day included a DJ lesson and both Will and Kate practised scratching. Here’s the video: People who aren’t DJs look like idiots when they try to DJ. Full Story

As you know, it was Amber Heard’s birthday yesterday. So her fiancé, Johnny Depp, had a lot of roses delivered to her. Fine. Then, last night, he took her to Bauman Rare Books. They picked out some poetry. After that, they probably went back to the hotel to watch black and white movies. Full Story

Courtside priorities

#WeTheNorth Jacek’s right. If I want a team to win, I have to get as far away from them as possible. As expected, Drake was courtside at the Raptors game last night to watch the Northern Uprising even the series against the Brooklyn Nets. Now I’m curious to know if he’ll travel with the team to New York for the next game on Friday. Full Story

For someone who purports not to care about names, Lainey kind of nails it. Because when it comes to the newly-minted Frankie Barrymore Kopelman, while I had standard issue grumbles about “Ugh with the boys’ names for girls as though they’re better, nobody’s naming their sons Abigail” and “Wow, Olive is sure going to know which one Mommy thought was going to be the ‘fun’ daughter”, Lainey cut right to the quick of it: “Frankie is just so her. Full Story

“Happy Birthday Martina from S.” (By request attached – Paris and Fassbender.) To Michelle with love from your sister Catherine – Happy Birthday! She says she’s worry that your card and present are late again but perhaps this will make up for it? Or Taylor Kitsch will make up for it? And for 14 year old Scooter, a grand dame who’s saying goodbye – just looking at your photo I know you’ve been well loved and that you’ve loved back equally hard in return. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

I gave birth again! My book, Listen To The Squawking Chicken, was released in the United States today! Thank you so much for all your support so far. For the second week in a row, Listen To The Squawking Chicken was #3 on the bestseller list in Canada. Click here to see. Again, as I’ve mentioned a few times already, the final acknowledgement at the back of the book is for you, the gossips. You are everything. Gossip is everything.

I’ll be at Barnes & Noble (150 East 86th Street) in New York tonight at 7pm to squawk and smut. See you there? And in Chicago on Thursday at 7pm at Anderson’s Bookshop. And in LA on Friday at 7pm at Book Soup.  Read Full Intro

It’s gorgeous in New York today. I f-cking love it here. But if you didn’t know how nice it is, Taylor Swift will show you. She wore a springtime dress while out in the city. She wore a springtime headband and carried her bag like a basket. And the flowerbeds just appeared. Can you imagine life like that? Every day is a fairy tale turned into a video. Full Story

Check out these low quality shots of Charlize Theron, with her son Jackson, and Sean Penn at the baseball game the other day. They weren’t even sitting in a box. They risked being among the people. The rowdy people. The ones who’ve been in the sun all day drinking beer. That is not usually a safe environment for crusty old Sean Penn. Full Story
