Drake’s been on tour in Paris. And…Rihanna also happens to be in Paris. Ohhhhh realllllly? There was a dinner the other night.

I just got an email telling me that they were hooking up all night. Full Story

I’ve been praying hard at my Gossip Genie for a Rihanna-Drake re-hookup. Have you noticed that Drake isn’t “linked” to many women the way famous men are constantly being “linked” to women? There’s a Toronto bias here at work, sure, but if you know about Drake and his relationship with his mother, and if you read his recent profile in GQ Full Story

Gwyneth Paltrow's in the Hamptons, riding around on her scooter, no makeup, cut-off jeans, hair scraped back in a bun. You know who else is spending August in the Hamptons? The Slum Bears. Gossip Genie that for me would you? G and JLO running into each other at Jack's Coffee. Full Story

It was the second Thursday of Cannes. Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson were at a party. The paps shot them from across the street -- rare photos of the two of them kissing and loving. With video! It was very romance, per Borat Sagdiyev. Three weeks ago, when I was planning our Cannes coverage, I had this day marked as an anniversary celebration for Twi-Hards. Full Story
