Dear Gossips,

It was announced yesterday that on July 31st, which is JK Rowling’s birthday and also Harry Potter’s birthday, Harry Potter And The Cursed Child Parts I & II will be published, immediately following the stage production.

Relief.

Because when the announcement first came out last October, I was one of probably millions of whiney babies who moaned about not being able to get to London’s West End to see the play and whyyyyyy couldn’t it have been a book? Click here for a refresher.

Well now it is a book. NOT A NOVEL.


The story is set 19 years after the end of The Deathly Hallows. Like the Battle of Hogwarts, I’m assuming, and not the epilogue at King’s Cross. And the darkness, it comes back in unexpected places. Well of course it does. What’s life without some darkness, even for those who live among magic? So, basically, there is no happily ever after. There are just stretches of happiness balanced out by challenges. Sound familiar? That’s what good luck, bad luck, and feng shui is all about too!

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

I can’t find any photos of Cameron Diaz on a red carpet in 2015. The last I remember her being on a red carpet was to promote Annie in December 2014. Two weeks after that she got married. And then Cam, one of the most well paid actresses in the world for a while, went quiet for a year. She hasn't actually been on a film set since Annie. Full Story

Nicole Kidman attended the UNICEF Ball in Beverly Hills last night. If she’d been at the Globes on Sunday wearing this? It would have been my Best Dressed. Spectacular. Nicole’s in LA right now working on the HBO adaptation of Liane Moriarty’s Big Little Lies. You read it, right? It was confirmed last year that Nicole and Reese Witherspoon acquired the rights to the book and that David E Kelley would be writing it. Full Story

Because in addition to the news that Gilmore Girls is set to have a series of special episodes on Netflix, it was announced that Graham and her other, more recent, perhaps more realistic TV daughter had acquired the rights to ‘The Royal We’ for Graham to write and Mae Whitman to star in. Full Story

Cindy Crawford is currently promoting her new book Becoming. It’s a memoir. With pictures! Pictures from 80s modelling. So I have to have it. But specifically I’d like to receive it as a gift, like a stocking stuffer at Christmas. I will also be giving it as a gift to people who grew up in the 80s. Full Story
