“I am truly grateful for the honor that the Academy bestowed upon me last year. I did not feel that I was given the material this season to warrant an Emmy nomination and in an effort to maintain the integrity of the Academy organization, I withdrew my name from contention. In addition, I did not want to potentially take away an opportunity from an actress who was given such materials. Full Story

Everything about her that night. Oh my God her dress. And her hair. Of course her face. Her shock at winning over Julie Christie. Le sigh. I love her so much. And then seeing her in the press room, as she was asked to sing an Edith Piaf song that would express her emotion… Please. Two hundred cynical, tired, bitchy journalists were eating out of her hand back there. Full Story

Tori Spelling was featured in the February issue of Self Magazine and, amid her sickening gush about the bullsh-t life she’s created from the smoldering embers of a home wrecked, she decided to share with us a poem KFed Jr once sent to her blackberry – golddigger’s attempt to violate the English language. Full Story

Considering she has the paps on speed dial, a TRULY candid photo these days of Shelf Ass Jessica Biel is a rare commodity. Which is why these are so delightful. It’s Shelfy in May after a long delay at the airport looking the worst, like, ever. And she knows it. And she’s pissed. She’s pissed because she did not plan this. Full Story

It was a big statement. Dating less than a year, suddenly Hollywood’s most eligible bachelor brings his girl of the moment, acquired from Las Vegas, to the most high profile event of the year, the most coveted carpet, the most exclusive event…the Oscars. Only to send her to the curb, with a cold back of the hand, a couple months later, pretty much watching over her in the middle of the night as she packed up her sh-t and vacated his house. Full Story

Remember when Kate Hudson ate a burger and wore a baby doll dress and all of you bumpwatch obsessed thought she was pregnant? Then came the bikini. The red bikini in Miami in March, leaving no doubt whatsoever that Kate was not expecting. Ugh. Why do we have to keep caring about people having babies? Why can’t we care more about her ass? How ridiculous is this ass? This manslinging ass is currently single. Full Story

It’s young love at its best… like a smarter version of Britney and Justin. Even though their denials are getting a little old, at the same time, they’re also refusing to engage, and that kind of deliberate protection could serve them well in the future. Will Rihanna and Chris Brown last? Well, at 20 and 19 respectively, probably not. Full Story

It was one of our favourite gossip activities this year, non? Watching Granny Freeze Nicole Kidman’s curious baby bump get smaller and smaller as her pregnancy progressed, seeing her at the gym every day, snickering as she’d put her hand repeatedly over her stomach even in “candid” photos just to make sure you knew she was having a Sunday. Full Story

Best of 2008: Girls Like Us

By Sheila Weller. My parents were immigrants. Their Western musical knowledge when they arrived in Canada was limited to the Beatles, Doris Day, and Elvis. Eventually my dad discovered Simon & Garfunkel and he karaoked Bridge Over Troubled Water (don’t you laugh!) at my wedding. So I did not grow up in a house with a vast library stocked with the classic albums, with the rock gods, the R&B pioneers, the jazz greats. Full Story

Best of 2008: Xenu the video

I almost forgot! I almost forgot about the video that made our lives! The theme from Mission Impossible, the GMD’s crazy cackle, the GMD’s crazy serious face immediately following his crazy cackle, the Xenu gibberish spewing from his mouth, and then his acceptance of that award swearing allegiance to LRH… it’s a far cry from the current iteration of Tom Cruise making his press rounds and it’s why we need this reminder – for those of you weakened by his remarkable publicity charms and yes, I’m including my colleagues at eTalk who were hypnotised by him last week. Full Story
