Intro for October 30, 2014

Dear Gossips,

Ashton Kutcher’s been doing some interviews. Of course, he’s being asked about his daughter, Wyatt. And agreeing to talk about his daughter Wyatt. How they chose her name, how he and Mila Kunis don’t have a nanny, how they’ve been figuring out parenthood. You know, personal information.

But hey, stay the f-ck out of his private life, OK?

Already though, even the snarks are starting to soften. It’s Fatherhood Whitewash, not unlike Motherhood Whitewash. Any time any asshole makes a baby, suddenly we give them a halo. Ashton Kutcher is a dad now. So, you know, he can’t possibly be a douchebag anymore.

Do we give halos out too easily? Once a halo is conferred, is it too hard to take it away? Or is that the point? That once a halo has been installed, it’s practically permanent?

Celebrities are arguably more entitled to this benefit than most. Their voices are louder. So loud they can muzzle other voices. And you can’t shout them down unless you assemble a village of opposing voices and even then, those opposing voices must be challenged and vetted before they’re allowed to speak up.

Anyway, it’s Serial day, your weekly appointment with Sarah Koenig. I believe in Sarah Koenig. Let us have that.

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

Giving Gwyneth the eye

Thought you might like these shots of Martha Stewart at The Today Show this morning with a creepy eye, likely some kind of Halloween costume. Or perhaps sending a message to her nemesis Gwyneth Paltrow in her ongoing petty blonde lady lifestyle-off. I wasn’t watching The Today Show. I’m not sure if she was asked about Gwyneth, again, and whether or not she told G to “be quiet”, again. Full Story

 

Miley’s difficult dress

Miley Cyrus and her mother Tish were also at that amfAR event last night to honour Tom Ford. She wore Tom Ford. Not everyone gets to wear Tom Ford to a Tom Ford party though. So far we have Gwyneth, naturally, and Rihanna, obviously, Miley, of course, and I think maybe January Jones but she got the most boring one. Full Story
