Dear Gossips,

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…

Taylor Swift.  Read Full Intro

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

The Daily Mail is reporting exclusively that Nick Cannon has signed a book deal and will be writing about all the sh-t that went down between him and Mimi… OMG. Do you want to know? Of course you want to f-cking know. But I have some questions. Full Story

Mimi and Brett Ratner are in St Barts together. With friends. And people are now speculating that it’s on. I need you to look these shots of Ratner sandwiched between Mimi and a friend. With his arms linked through both of them. You know Mimi, right? I mean we all know Mimi. Is that how a Mimi boyfriend would behave around his precious butterfly? A Mimi boyfriend, first of all, isn’t to be shared. Full Story

Riding in cars with Mimi

I didn’t even know this was my dream until it became my dream. Why hasn’t anyone thought of this before? Put Mimi in the car with you. Play her songs.  FEEL THE JOY. Did it take 5 hours just to get her in her seat? Probably. Did they invent new interior vehicular lighting panels just to accommodate her demands? I’m sure. Full Story

Like many of you, I was waiting all week for this. Some of you wondered about the Gwyneth question, whether or not Howard would go there. As I told my friend (and top Madonna scholar) Iain, Howard didn’t ask G about M, so there was no way he was going to ask M about G. M is way bigger than G. Full Story

This happened in Paris about an hour ago. Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson walked for Valentino. And THAT just made up for the blonde-ing. This PFW has been hijacked. PROPERLY. All of this in support of course of the upcoming Zoolander sequel. Because this appearance came with an announcement: February 2016. Full Story

Following a Twitter stunt in which fans had to tweet the hashtag #AvengersAssemble in order to “unlock” a new trailer—I imagine people at Marvel, drunk on their own power, screeching, “Dance monkeys, dance!” and cackling maniacally—yesterday Marvel released the final trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron, and it’s all our dreams come true. Full Story

No, really, isn’t she? She’s my favourite. I can’t be neutral on Kelly Clarkson. All I can do is go positive, ultra-positive, all the time. Because she’s SO lovely, SO nice, SO fun. And it’s real. You can tell when it’s not real. On our talk show here in Canada, The Social Full Story
