Harry Potter Gossip
Harry Potter gossip, latest news, photos, and video.
Harry Potter & the Order of the Phoenix comes out on DVD this week in the UK and on December 11th everywhere else – very cool special features. I even cried during the 43 minute behind the scenes documentary when they talk about how love saves Harry. Sob. To promote the DVD release, journalists were invited to interview members of the cast – who are now working on the Half Blood Prince – on the set of the new film. Full Story
Due to some technical difficulties, the book page won’t be ready for a couple of weeks. As such, the inaugural review is appearing here – rather anticlimactic, yes. But so goes technology. Hope you don’t mind. In due time, LaineyBooks will feature recommendations and commentary as many of you have enjoyed past book club mentions and have requested a place to refer to for potential book lists. Full Story
Two more sleeps. Two more sleeps til the late night line up. Two more sleeps ‘til his fate is revealed. Not even dinner with Gwyneth could come between me and Harry Friday night.
And in continuing with this week’s Potter-inspired Freebie Five, you will note #1 has been adjusted yet again. Equine and spiritual – what’s not to love?
So the new LAX opening in Vegas at the end of August will be hosted by Britney Spears. LAX investors include Nick Lachey, Wilmer Valderrama, and none other than Christina Aguilera. Which means Britney is now working for those once considered her peers.
Does she really need the money???
Wednesday, am online all day, check back often.
Yours in gossip,
PS. All new posts will continue UNDER the Site Brief for the remainder of the week to catch those who don’t visit the site every day. Sorry for the inconvenience!
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.

PPS. Will be on TSN’s Off the Record with Michael Landsberg today – check it out!
We are a Virgin Generation. And this is a privilege. No one after us will ever truly NOT KNOW. Four days to Book 7. As such, #1 on the Freebie Five is dedicated to Magic – a new name every day…stay tuned. Full Story
OK Potter fans…you were at the midnight showing, right? It was brilliant, non?
No doubt Potter will win the box office this weekend, although there’s a revolting man in drag who will take on JK Rowling a week later. Harry or Hairspray? My money on Magic.
As for Nicole Richie…not expected in court today although her lawyer is supposedly considering a plea bargain from the DA which could mean no jailtime. Drugged and driving on the wrong side of a freeway and free as a bird.
Wednesday – am travelling tonight, prepping for the trip so blogging on the fly. Check back throughout the day.
Yours in gossip,
My summer girl… my Chelsea in London partying at Mahiki. Well of course she was partying at Mahiki – she’s 21 and Mahiki only works for 23 and under. Big boobs, skinny legs, blonde and tan…like Pam Anderson but super rich. An heiress. With connections good enough for a Hot Harry on a Horse and bred to be able to swallow his royal indiscretions… Love. Full Story
It was supposed to be Sienna Miller’s greatest achievement and she gave it her all, supposedly going so deep into character as Edie Sedgwick that she also picked up, for a time anyway, all of her tragic vices. This version, the uncut, unrated one is not what was released in theatres. Closer to the original script, it features more scenes with Hayden Christensen, is much more well rounded, and of course still includes that very provocative, rather explicit sex clip with Hayden that was purported to have been actual intercourse. Full Story
… but judging from your emails after Equus, definitely for some of you. Thing is, he’s like a son to me. Or at least a much younger brother. After reading Harry and then watching Harry, especially in the latest film, watching him grow, feeling ridiculously proud of his maturity, it’s hard to picture anything but a hug. Full Story
You know it’s a slow week when every frickin’ detail of Eva Longoria’s pre-wedding prep has been documented with meticulous attention.
Am headed to Calgary for one day on Sunday shooting for eTalk. Hopefully will be able to enjoy some Stampede festivities and perhaps pop in to the infamous Cowboys? Where Hot Harry on a Horse dabbled in some Canadian low classy? Would love to do a shot of tequila off a set of fake tits purchased for staff by the establishment’s generous owners. Word is, during Stampede, the girls who work it the hardest can earn up to ten grand a night. A NIGHT??? I scoffed at first but I suppose preying on the horny and rich can be a lucrative business.
Finally Friday, am online all day, refresh often.
Have a great weekend!
Yours in gossip,
In the new issue of Hello Canada, several photos not widely circulated from the Concert for Diana last Sunday. For the first time in a long time, I actually find William attractive. Even his dorky dancing. Some say he was only goofing around – whatever he was doing, he looked like he was having a good time, genuinely enjoying himself, not constipated and boring…not quite quiverating, certainly not even close to the Hotness on Horse, but not entirely unsexy either. Full Story
Emma Watson at the London premiere of OoTP this afternoon. Cute blue cocktail, very age appropriate and she doesn’t look like a proper skank 10 years older. How refreshing. When I interviewed her she mentioned she was attending fitting after fitting and had a boatload of clothes on the go for “publicity”. Full Story
They are young yet and marriage is nowhere near a reality but my new favourite Chelsy Davy has clearly been bred for the position should the opportunity present itself. At the tender age of 21, Chelsy is already adept at the turn and swallow – not a porn move but a privilege move, the move so many other society ladies before her have perfected: the art of overlooking infidelity and embarrassment and keeping one’s eye on the big picture… A Royal Title. Full Story
I don’t think so but Karen L and I were debating it the other night at the Sanderson Hotel. She says yes, I say no…You? Here’s Chelsy arriving at Heathrow yesterday, likely joining Hot Harry on a Horse at the Concert for Diana on Sunday. Girl can fill out a pair of jeans, that’s for sure. Full Story
