Robin Leach, yes, that Robin Leach, of Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous, interviewed Mimi yesterday ahead of her Vegas debut. This will be the best 8 minutes of your life, the video below. First of all, he makes her stand the entire time. STAND! For 8 minutes! And she doesn’t fall over! I need to know if there were 3 people underneath her holding her upright. Full Story

In a pink ride. In a tricked out dress. And all kinds of curves. That, um, don’t match the curves on the official billboard. The billboard is how Mimi sees herself. It’s like seeing Mimi through Mimi’s eyes. Fascinating. Come on. If this isn’t getting you through your sh-tty Tuesday, my question to you is how you define Happiness. Full Story
Duana referred to it yesterday in her name post – click here for a refresher. That would be Gaius Charles, who played Smash Williams. Smash who?
Friday Night Lights. You know, that show we’ve been nagging you to watch for almost 10 years? And then when you finally do, you email us all like, “OMG, Duana and Lainey, you were RIGHT!”
If you know Friday Night Lights, Amy Schumer’s sketch would have been even funnier. You wouldn’t appreciate Tami Taylor’s walk-away hand dancing. You wouldn’t recognise Josh Charles’s puckered Coach Taylor mouth. But the real Tami Taylor did:
Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer were in Vegas earlier this week at CinemaCon to promote The Man From U.N.C.L.E. It comes out in August. And as I mentioned earlier this week, neither star has much heat right now so the marketing team for the movie has to get on it, soon. Cavill in particular, given that he's Superman, really needs this. Full Story
Did not or could not? Russell Crowe is currently promoting his directorial debut The Water Diviner. He’s been extra generous with gossip during this press tour. I’m obsessed with the one about Michael Jackson prank calling him. You heard about this? Michael would just ring up Russell’s hotel room and start asking to speak to Mr Wall. Full Story

Matthew McConaughey and Ken Watanabe will be in Cannes. Gus Van Sant’s Sea Of Trees will be screened in competition at the festival. Gus Van Sant + McConaughey? I’m definitely intrigued. The Croisette is going to lose its mind with the return of McConaughey, now an Oscar winner, to the Palais. Full Story

Sometimes the world gives and gives, and when you think ‘oh no world, this is too much’, the world gives you more. Anna Kendrick will release a series of ‘autobiographical humourous essays’ in the fall of 2016. I love this for three reasons. Number one, I think they will be great. Full Story

Here’s FKA twigs yesterday arriving at her show in LA. Afterwards, she and Robert Pattinson were seen heading to a party. Interestingly enough, Rick Rubin was spotted arriving at the twigs performance. What would (or will) that look like? A twigs-Rubin collaboration? Twigs is scheduled to be at Coachella again this weekend. Full Story
As you know, we have a lot of love for Shonda Rhimes here. Normally it’s Duana who gets to hog on loving Shonda. But she’s busy today. So I’m stealing this one from her and it’s big. Last night Shonda was named to the National Association of Broadcasting Hall Of Fame. And it’s not like I have to explain why but I will anyway: what would ABC be with Shondaland? There would be no TGIT. Full Story
The Hollywood Reporter posted a great interview yesterday with legendary gossip columnist Liz Smith. Smith is now 92 years old. Still gossiping. And she doesn’t give a sh-t. Which makes this article such a beautiful read. One minute she’s pissing on Jackie Kennedy’s sister Lee Radziwill, calling her a homophobe. The next she’s dumping on the Trumps. Then she calls out Barbara Walters for being an opportunist. Apparently they were friends, until Liz lost her job. And now Barbara won’t have anything to do with her.
Liz even goes for Oprah, kind of. Subtly. I mean, remember, this is a woman who used to spend a LOT of time with Liz and Dick. Who was invited by them to report on their lives. She’s seen everything worth seeing. And she says that the one who’s worth it now, in this new generation of gossip subjects, is…

Way back in 2012, Dean’s first post was about… well… Mimi of course. And, specifically, it was about how Mimi has basically trademarked Christmas. Like it BELONGS to her. Click here to read the rules of a Mimi Christmas. So why did it take this long for a Mimi Christmas movie to happen? NATURALLY! What movie do you always watch at Christmas? Miracle On 34th Street? Home Alone? It’s A Wonderful Life? The Sound Of Music? Elf? Scrooged? The Santa Claus? Well f-ck them all, OK? F-CK. Full Story

Is it surprising you that Lip Sync Battle is attracting some big name guests? Probably not. It’s only 10 episodes and it’s produced by Jimmy Fallon, John Krasinski, and Stephen Merchant. So, basically, they’re just calling up all their friends. Krasinki and Merchant apparently invented the game. Full Story
