So it was confirmed yesterday that Matthew McConaughey will not return for Magic Mike 2. The storyline is apparently a road trip, and either he wasn’t invited, or he didn’t want to get in the car. I’m thinking…he didn’t want to get in the car.
Channing Tatum will be back though. And Matt Bomer. And …Joe Meatball. Who keeps posting pictures of his ripped body on Twitter while he’s training for the movie even though I’m not sure he had more than 3 lines in the first one.
Is Joe Meatball enough to make up for the absence of Matthew McConaughey?
There’s a reason they weren’t interested when he kept throwing himself at the Superman role.
No disrespect to Matt Bomer because he’s wonderful but he’s not a Movie Star. The only Movie Star left in Magic Mike – until they announce a casting addition – is Channing Tatum. Can Channing Tatum alone carry the Magic Mike sequel? Let me know your thoughts.

Have you seen Boyhood yet? One of the best films of the year, if not THE best film of the year. And Patricia Arquette gives an incredible performance. Joanna sent this article to me today - even though Arquette’s role in Boyhood is a lead, IFC Films will be submitting her for Oscar consideration in the Best Supporting Actress category instead.

UK papers are speculating that Prince Harry and Cressida Bonas might be dating again after they were seen at a movie theatre together on Tuesday night. It was Sex Tape, starring Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel. British gossips are making it a thing about their choice in movie but that movie isn’t so much of a f-ck film as it is a (stupid) comedy.

Saraah! Happy Birthday! Was lovely meeting you in San Francisco earlier this year. As for Duana and the baby name, like I told you then, Little M (SO CUTE) has always been one of her favourites. She’s always trying to push it on people. But maybe now I should tell her to stop so that no one jacks it from you? Matt asked me to include photos of “nice celebrities as opposed to asshole celebrities" for you. Full Story
Jacek and I are obsessed with The Amazing Race Canada. And very disappointed that Sukhi and Jinder were eliminated last night.
But we also happen to be heading to Halifax tomorrow night for the weekend. So the Bay of Fundy and Peggy’s Cove are going to happen for us on Friday and Saturday. Road trip! You see this lighthouse? That’s where I’m going to make Jacek take his first selfie. Remember that scene in Mermaids where Winona Ryder loses her virginity to Jake Ryan from Sixteen Candles? This is how I always pictured it.
We could get arrested for that.
It would be worth it.
Anyway, if you’re in Halifax on Sunday, come to Word On The Street!

I still can’t find an official opening date for Victoria Beckham’s flagship store on Dover Street. They said she was hoping to launch during London Fashion Week. So… any day now. But not tonight. Tonight she was photographed leaving the shoppe after inspecting work progress. Will there be a party? Who’s on the guest list for the party? Is Anna Wintour coming to her party? She better have a party. Full Story

I feel like I know more about this wedding than the Kanye West wedding. That said, you know who would agree with making the wedding as big of a f-cking deal as possible and broadcasting it far and wide? My ma, the Chinese Squawking Chicken. It’s a celebration. You don’t hide a celebration in a corner. Full Story

Ordinarily this kind of post would be on the LifeStyle page. But I'm so hard for this cape I need to blast it out.

Jennifer Lopez stepped out in a great dress today. JLO legs. JLO everything. But she must never need to sit down. How do you sit? I work on a tv show and we are constantly crotch-testing our shots on camera. And we aren't wearing sh-t that grazes our ass cheeks. I'm going knee-length today and I'm still paranoid about a pussy flash. Full Story
For months now, Taylor Swift has turned the sidewalk outside her NYC apartment into a runway. She decided she wanted to be a style "icon", as we continue to degrade the true definition of that word. Well, it worked. PEOPLE Magazine just named her Best Dressed Of The Year. Evidently walking out of an Anthropologie and wearing the same sh-t Elie Saab designs over and over and over again gets you to the top of the fashion list. Full Story
This is the cutest thing you’ll see all day. And it’s not that Sesame Street doesn’t always have a purpose, because of course kids are learning while they’re watching, but for Lupita, she’s always made it clear that, for her, there’s a consistency in her branding too. Full Story
