Articles and photos related to celebrities with a flare for the dramatic and making people happy by doing what they do, mostly unintentionally.
My etalk colleague Danielle McGimsie is one of the best television presenters I know. Her voiceovers are amazing. No one does a read like Danielle. And when she’s at a junket? Never mind. Danielle always brings back a strong interview for the show, even when the actor she’s interviewing is sh-t. Full Story

Neil Patrick Harris. Hedwig And The Angry Inch. They would have asked him to host the Tony Awards again if he wasn’t so busy….WINNING A TONY AWARD. Powered by his performance, the production also won the Best Revival of a Musical award. And he certainly brought it home on stage. Off stage too. Full Story

Rihanna was named Fashion Icon at the CFDA Awards last night in New York. If you know you’re going to the CFDAs and they’re honouring you with that kind of title, well, you know you have to bring it, balls out. All out. And she did. Adam Selman had people working non-stop, day and night to finish this piece featuring over 200,000 thousand crystals sewn into fishnet. Full Story

Please enjoy these photos of Prince enjoying Rafael Nadal win in straight sets at the French Open today to advance to the quarterfinals. It takes real commitment to wear a turtleneck this time of year. And to perch on his signature tricked out cane like he’s the boss of everyone and they’re all there to play for him. Full Story

Sophia Loren. At the Palais today for a photo call. And she must have liked the light because she took off her sunglasses. Today she wore red. The other night on the carpet it was sparkly and silvery gold. Kinda like a finger snap. Step off, young ladies. This is mine. It’s always been mine. Full Story
How many people wear floor length gowns to be interviewed by David Letterman?
Mimi did. And not only was it floor length, it was also sparkly and mermaidy. So, you know, if you didn’t know where she was going, you would have assumed it was an award show. Or some kind of gala. No. Just a talk show appearance.
Next question: how many people does it take to jam Mimi into her floor lengths gowns because she insists on wearing clothes that are too small for her? Wait. Who cares? I don’t want her to ever change. Ever. Keep on being “elusive”. Keep on babbling excuses about why it took so long for the album to come out. I don’t understand what the f-ck she’s saying but she’s waving that butterfly ring in my face so, really, what’s the problem?
Yours in gossip,
Julia Roberts is currently promoting HBO’s The Normal Heart. That means a lot of Julia being Julia. Which means Julia honking, Julia lecturing, Julia judging… Julia being Julia. Which is kinda like Mimi being Mimi. Except Mimi doesn’t call it anything other than what it is. Full Story

Have you seen this yet? All credit to Hugh Jackman who just…he just…he makes everyone better. Like if you’re on a press tour with Hugh Jackman, or doing a three-way interview with him, you’re compelled to be as charming and as charismatic as he is. Because otherwise, you just end up looking like a sulky f-ck. Full Story

John Travolta’s chin growth was at the IIFA Awards in Tampa, Florida this weekend. Hands on hips. Few men pose with their hands on their hips. It’s a strictly female pose move. And the man DOUBLE hands on hips is even more rare. So good on JT for make this gender neutral. Now about this thing on his chin… Are my eyes just bugging or does it appear to be off-centre? Note where the dimple is. Full Story
