GOOP in the frozen food aisle

Lainey Posted by Lainey at February 15, 2012 21:02:03 February 15, 2012 21:02:03

I don't know if they actually stock this in the frozen food aisle over in Austria but the packaging looks like frozen food packaging you find in supermarkets in North America. Check out Gwyneth Paltrow in an ad for, I dunno, salad foods?, that appeared in a newspaper in Vienna, sent in by Kate L. Thanks Kate! Apparently the caption reads:"I'm not vegetarian, but I love Veggie!"G of course is not the only celebrity to pimp herself overseas. Full Story

She loves her life. That’s obvious. She was so delighted with her producers and the adorable boyfriend who was sort of affably out of the whole thing.  She screeched at her mum in her South London twang, and if you haven’t watched her 60 minutes interview with Anderson you need to get on that, because no two people who are media professionals have spent so much time giggling together on camera. Full Story

With her sceptre.It takes a certain dedication to be comfortable being uncomfortable. And for over three hours. I often think this of Victoria Beckham and her heels. How she suffers for her image. Same goes for Lady Gaga last night, crammed into that seat. With no reason, not one, to get up. That’s my way of saying she lost in every category. Full Story

Gisele’s response

Lainey Posted by Lainey at February 8, 2012 22:15:22 February 8, 2012 22:15:22

As you know, Gisele Bundchen has been taking all kinds of heat since the Super Bowl for getting caught on camera calling out the Patriots receivers to a group of friends that included, interestingly enough, other Patriots’ wives. Were those the same wives who are meangirling her in the press?The wives and their player husbands have apparently hated on Tom Brady’s wife for a long time because they claim she’s mega c-nty to them at team events, supposedly judging them for not being Brazilian supermodels. Full Story

I LOVE this story. It might actually help clear up my congestion. As you know, the New York Giants meet the New England Patriots on Sunday at the Super Bowl. It’s NYC vs Boston. It’s a rematch. It’s ugly. It’s trash talk. It’s ...well... if you love sports and entertainment, it’s the best.Check out the cover of today’s New York Post Full Story

The Academy announced today that Tom Cruise will present at the Oscars, his first in five years. And in front of an audience that will include George Clooney and Brad Pitt who have, over the last decade or so, arguably exceeded him in reputation and prestige. Sanity too? The GMD’s last trip to the Kodak was in 2007. Full Story

Worst SAG Choker: Kristen Wiig

I like Kristen Wiig so much but that f-cking choker was so objectionable to me it almost affected how I felt about the wearer, this is what you risk with a terrible accessory. Like, I’m all for understated Balenciaga. And in many ways, Kristen Wiig is very understated Balenciaga. It’s the anti-Marchesa. Full Story

While in theory we’re restricting ourselves to what happens at the show, in reality certain truths are self-evident – in this case, that Giuliana (Lainey: Duana keeps calling her Giuliana DePandi which is maybe my favourite thing in life, ever) irritated a wide swath of people far more than usual on the red carpet, and, in keeping with the SAGs being the awards where they really get to let it all hang out, they made less of an attempt to hide it. Full Story

Moving too fast

My favourite story of the day. Maybe I’m delirious from the altitude here in Utah with all the nosebleeds I’ve been getting but when this report came across my blackberry earlier, I could barely contain myself. Aretha Franklin has cancelled her wedding to her William Wickerson. It’s the statement they released that cracked me up:"Regretfully, To Our Friends and Supporters: Will and I have decided we were moving a little too fast, and there were a number of things that had not been thought through thoroughly. Full Story

GG Best Schtick? Sofia Vergara & Julie Bowen

So you saw most of this play out, right?  On the carpet, we saw the dresses.  Sofia Vergara’s teal – a colour which I already think is kind of alarmingly muted – is tamped down to almost depressing.   But it fits her like no other actress’s dress ever does.  And other than the mincing down the stairs (time for E! to look into a dumbwaiter, maybe?), she looked comfortable. Full Story
