Massive premiere in London today – the final, final, FINAL carpet for the Harry Potter series in the motherland. There will be a premiere in New York on Monday but ... Harry is English, England is the heart of it. And here they almost all are to say goodbye and thank you. No, thank YOU. F-ck me I am crying again. Full Story

Poster of Snape for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows 2. You could say it’s just a poster but... It’s more than just a poster. Like, if there’s ever an expression to sum up what Snape is, why he is, to say, without words, that one word... ALWAYS! Isn’t this how you do? Again, again, again. Full Story

Please don’t go…

If there’s anything that turns me into a total nerd, it’s Harry Potter. And especially now that we’re so close to it being over, just 6 weeks out from the release of the final film, knowing …It all ends. Sob! And then a reader called Sarah J just sent me this, a letter written by Alan Rickman describing his emotions now that he’s said goodbye to Snape… Sob! Jo always says that the enduring message of the series is the power of love. Full Story

5 what? It wasn’t intended to be this way when I started writing this morning but somehow every post so far has been about the British. So I thought I’d round it out with 5 straight and move on. You ok with Colin Firth? Or are you going to bitch about it because you “don’t care about the Royal Wedding and why don’t you just stop writing about it Lainey because none of my friends are going to watch, and you keep going on about a non-story?” I’ve received maybe a dozen or so emails like this. Full Story

It’s Alan Rickman. He was in Brooklyn last night at the John Gabriel Borkman afterparty at BAM. He plays the title character. Of course the reviews are wonderful. What else would they be? Sigh. I think I need to break out my Sense & Sensibility. Full Story

They made us wait, and this is why Twilight took over… temporarily. But Harry. There is no comparison to Harry. None. Never. Please! July 17 seems so far away. Every other day I watch the trailers, every other day I get the gooses, and the other day I said to Fiona – I miss reading them for the first time. Full Story

Snape’s New Brew

Alan Rickman. That’s all. Actually wait… that’s not all. Because he’s promoting a movie. And it’s called Bottle Shock. And it’s about wine. California wine victorious over French wine – say what f&ck? Indeed. It was a true tale in 1976 and now they’ve made it into a movie that drops this Friday with the impossibly brilliant Alan Rickman in the lead. Full Story

Snape at Sundance

Alan Rickman is a sexy beast. Yum. Especially in his hilarious striped jeans and leather cape at Sundance. OK so maybe it’s not a cape but still…wouldn’t you love to see Snape rock a leather cape? If you’re a Potter fan, a large part of your heart probably belongs to Alan and to Snape. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Was it Major??? F&ck the critics… I thought it was Major. And judging from your emails, you did too.

By the way – was that Marla Maples? More on the Posh special later.

Thanks for all your kind words and not so kind words re: the new site design. It is still a work in progress – will continue to keep you posted on improvements.

Most of your Freebie Five nominations have been added for your personal lists. Some of the bugs you’ve forwarded on have also been corrected.

You’ll note that in keeping up with Harry Potter week mine has been updated as well. Alan Rickman is a sexy beast. And Severus Snape is a sexy Slytherin – I still believe.

Am in and out of meetings today, will post on the fly.

Yours in gossip,


PS. All new posts will continue UNDER the Site Brief.

PPS. Will be on TSN’s Off the Record with Michael Landsberg today – check it out!
