Amal and George Clooney will be spending the summer at their home in Lake Como next month and apparently there’s going to be a birthday party and a temporary bylaw has been passed that’s supposed to be to deter paps and gawkers.

It makes sense. Because she runs in such exclusive company. Like if we were talking about children, hers would be the most exclusive treehouse in the neighbourhood. And every kid within 50 blocks would want to be invited to this treehouse. But only few get the privilege. TMZ Full Story

And now it looks like they’re celebrating their breakup with a trip, together, in Mexico with their children – THAT’s how f-cking amicable they are. Full Story

Ryan Gosling stepped out in LA to meet some friends for lunch yesterday. In that outfit, with the facial hair, he looks like he’s been in a dark room for days. Is that a euphemism for dealing with an infant? Ryan’s directorial debut, Lost River, opens in a few days on April 10. It’s the only thing he tweets Full Story

Donnie Wahlberg and Dr. Jenny McCarthy were on the Howard Stern show yesterday, and the headline making the rounds is about Jenny and The View maybe or maybe not unofficially asking her back. Who cares. There’s another clip floating around that is far more interesting, concerning Donnie Wahlberg and his brother Mark. Full Story

She claims that Weinstein told her to come see him on Friday at 6pm at his office for an “audition”. During the “audition”, she alleges that Weinstein asked her if her breasts were real, then tried to touch them, then allegedly tried to shove his hand up her skirt. Full Story

As Maria noted in her Tidal post, Taylor Swift was probably THE biggest name not present and accounted for at the Tidal kickoff yesterday. I say THE biggest name because, love her or hate her, you cannot deny Taylor’s chart influence, not only with the latest album 1989 but her previous ones too. Full Story

If you already have a Tom Hardy problem, this isn’t going to help. This will make it much, much worse. Here he is on the cover of UK Esquire. Some dudes, when they do the squinty eye thing, it doesn’t work, not at all. You don’t believe it.
