Dear Gossips,

What’s your Halloween association? For The Social recently we were asked to share our Halloween memories, like favourite costumes etc. I can’t remember any of my old costumes.

For those of you who don’t believe in superstition and the supernatural, science can’t explain that.  Read Full Intro

And this isn’t meant as any disrespect to Martha Plimpton who is doing good work and has a new Fox TV show with Cloris Leachman premiering after Glee in September called Raising Hope and has been nominated for 3 Tony Awards and deserves to be recognised in her own right for her accomplishments but it’s just that, well, if you loved River Phoenix, you can’t help but think of him when you see her. Full Story
