Intro for August 19, 2014


Dear Gossips,

Coming soon to television: Keanu Reeves.

As reported by Deadline yesterday, he’ll be starring in and producing a series called Rain based on Barry Eisler’s books. John Rain is an assassin whose murders are set up to look like natural cause. He’s an international man of mystery and a lonely loner. Oh, but aren’t they all?

Professionally, this is the right move. Keanu seems to know about playing his position. And, happily, he’s playing it without having to resort to joining The Expendables. You know, I still can’t breathe when Speed is on TV and I’m watching him stare intently forward out of the front window of the bus. Full Story


Meet your new crush


OK, my new crush. Did you read Gayle Forman’s If I Stay? You have time to do it this week before the movie opens on the weekend. It’s not a long book. It’ll take you a couple of hours. And then you won’t be able to help yourself and you’ll read the sequel, Where She Went, which is also quick. Full Story


JLO re-slums


Despite the fact that she’s never been better than she has this summer, after she broke up with Casper Smart, JLO might have gotten back together with the Slum Bear. They were photographed together today in LA. He’s driving. She’s trying to hide. YES, JLO HIDE. Hide because you SHOULD be embarrassed. Full Story
