Neil Patrick Harris. Hedwig And The Angry Inch. They would have asked him to host the Tony Awards again if he wasn’t so busy….WINNING A TONY AWARD. Powered by his performance, the production also won the Best Revival of a Musical award. And he certainly brought it home on stage. Off stage too. Full Story

Mimi took her kids to the park and this is what she wore. And since she was wearing a ball gown, she was recognised by some fans and they wanted to have their photo taken and she agreed and posted those shots on Twitter too. It’s not that she knows it’s not ridiculous. Full Story

Rihanna was named Fashion Icon at the CFDA Awards last night in New York. If you know you’re going to the CFDAs and they’re honouring you with that kind of title, well, you know you have to bring it, balls out. All out. And she did. Adam Selman had people working non-stop, day and night to finish this piece featuring over 200,000 thousand crystals sewn into fishnet. Full Story

Please enjoy these photos of Prince enjoying Rafael Nadal win in straight sets at the French Open today to advance to the quarterfinals. It takes real commitment to wear a turtleneck this time of year. And to perch on his signature tricked out cane like he’s the boss of everyone and they’re all there to play for him. Full Story

Mimi was at the Fresh Air Fund gala last night, jammed into a baby blue dress with her “titty balls” (as Michael K from Dlisted calls them) in your face. It’s like she could eat them. How did she get there? I’m not exactly sure. Full Story

My first reaction: HAHAHAHAHHAHAAHHHAAHAHAHHAHAHAH Here’s Charlie’s full description of what happened Full Story

Sophia Loren. At the Palais today for a photo call. And she must have liked the light because she took off her sunglasses. Today she wore red. The other night on the carpet it was sparkly and silvery gold. Kinda like a finger snap. Step off, young ladies. This is mine. It’s always been mine. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

How many people wear floor length gowns to be interviewed by David Letterman?

Mimi.

Mimi did. And not only was it floor length, it was also sparkly and mermaidy. So, you know, if you didn’t know where she was going, you would have assumed it was an award show. Or some kind of gala. No. Just a talk show appearance.

Next question: how many people does it take to jam Mimi into her floor lengths gowns because she insists on wearing clothes that are too small for her? Wait. Who cares? I don’t want her to ever change. Ever. Keep on being “elusive”. Keep on babbling excuses about why it took so long for the album to come out. I don’t understand what the f-ck she’s saying but she’s waving that butterfly ring in my face so, really, what’s the problem?

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

Julia Roberts is currently promoting HBO’s The Normal Heart. That means a lot of Julia being Julia. Which means Julia honking, Julia lecturing, Julia judging… Julia being Julia. Which is kinda like Mimi being Mimi. Except Mimi doesn’t call it anything other than what it is. Full Story

Have you seen this yet? All credit to Hugh Jackman who just…he just…he makes everyone better. Like if you’re on a press tour with Hugh Jackman, or doing a three-way interview with him, you’re compelled to be as charming and as charismatic as he is. Because otherwise, you just end up looking like a sulky f-ck. Full Story

There was a party at the Battersea Power Station last night in London. Since The Avengers sequel is now shooting there, two members of the world’s defenders showed up to celebrate. Here are Jeremy Renner and Chris Evans, Hawkeye and Captain America, at the event…because they’re the two single dudes in the group, right? Sort of. Full Story

John Travolta’s chin growth was at the IIFA Awards in Tampa, Florida this weekend. Hands on hips. Few men pose with their hands on their hips. It’s a strictly female pose move. And the man DOUBLE hands on hips is even more rare. So good on JT for make this gender neutral. Now about this thing on his chin… Are my eyes just bugging or does it appear to be off-centre? Note where the dimple is. Full Story

Two weeks ago, George Clooney was in Vegas with Rande Gerber and some of this other Casamigos tequila partners having dinner with Vegas magnate Steve Wynn. There was an argument. Wynn says Clooney was a dick and Clooney says Wynn was a dick and, well, basically, rich people can’t get along. Amazingly they’re both talking to the media about what went down. Full Story
