The summer of the split continues. This time…
Miss Piggy and Kermit.
They confirmed yesterday that they are no longer together although they could be if presented with the right offer – probably a movie deal? By the way, because these things matter, it was Piggy who walked:
“After careful thought, thoughtful consideration and considerable squabbling, Miss Piggy made the difficult decision to terminate our romantic relationship. We will continue to work together on television (“The Muppets”/Tuesdays 8pm this fall on ABC) and in all media now known or hereafter devised, in perpetuity, throughout the universe. However, our personal lives are now distinct and separate, and we will be seeing other people, pigs, frogs, et al. This is our only comment on this private matter. Thank you for your understanding.”
Obviously I don’t love the end of love but I do love that the Muppets are basically trolling celebrities. Hopefully Kermit will next hook up with a nanny. But whatever, like Gwen and Gavin, it’s Piggy who’s always been the real star of that relationship:
"Dating moi is like flying close to the sun. It was inevitable that Kermit would drop down to the ground while I stayed in the heavens."
Speaking of nannies, to no one’s surprise, the nanny’s making headlines again today. We’ll get to that this morning.
Yours in gossip,
As mentioned yesterday, since it was a long weekend in most of Canada, we gave the site a mini-facelift. Because of this, you may need to refresh your browser a couple of times for the changes to take effect. Also, if you subscribe to the newsletter, that will be restored tomorrow. Thank you so much for your understanding, especially since another breakup went down on Monday. More on Gwen and Gavin to come.
So far it’s been the summer of splits. Read Full Intro
Needed this on a sh-tty day… Idris Elba covers Maxim. And they point out that he probably won’t be the next James Bond – right now it’s looking like it could be Damian Lewis because…I don’t know why. I don’t know why anyone wouldn’t think Idris Elba wouldn’t be a perfect Bond. Full Story

So your best friend is a supermodel and you are both social media stars.

The interview with Vanity Fair happened in London a few weeks ago, well before Nicki Minaj gave her some real talk on Twitter. At the time, if you recall, she was girl squading all over her stage. Serena Williams was there. Cara Delevingne and the model crew were there. At the time, Taylor was untouchable. Full Story

Zayn Malik has ended his engagement. You’ll recall, the mess first started when Zayn was still with One Direction, on tour in Asia, accused of cheating on Perrie Edwards. That resulted in him tapping out of the tour, rushing back to England to be with Perrie, and then subsequently breaking up with the band. Full Story
You know, sometimes – often – I rail about how people should try to give their children names of equal heft and style, so that they don’t feel they’re unequal from the start. You know, balance that sibling rivalry. I always think about the siblings I met at the park called George and Eden. Full Story

Masters of Sex season 3 episode 4 recap The thing about sex that makes it interesting to talk about and see, especially on TV and the movies, is that it’s supposed to be secret and ‘between two people’, and that’s how we generally conduct ourselves in real life. Don’t ask, don’t tell. Full Story
Have you seen Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation yet? I’ve seen it twice now – went again yesterday. And it’s just as fun the second time. That’s not an original statement either. The movie is critically acclaimed and it exceeded box office projections, by all accounts a major success for Tom Cruise, the “living manifestation of destiny”. Full Story
Zoolander 2 is currently slated for release on February 12, 2016, which is a little over six months away. A burial in the February boneyard of cinematic crap is not a confidence builder, but then, the new teaser trailer for Zoolander II doesn’t commit to that date, instead saying only “Coming in 2016”.

STAR Magazine has creeper shots of Christine Ouzounian at the Hotel Bel Air that were taken on Sunday. They call it an “ultra-exclusive” property. And it’s not cheap either. Just wanted to set the setting. Anyway, as you can see, most of the shots were taken on an iPhone from someone who was eavesdropping on Christine by the pool. Full Story
