As I’m sure you’ve heard by now, Nick Cannon announced on the radio this morning that he and Mariah Carey are expecting twins. Celine twins, Mimi twins... It’s like they’re trying to heal the world. We do need healing. Anyway, the best version of this twin confirmation is over at Roger Friedman’s Full Story

Just Keep Livin’, Bro Down Grillin’

Here’s a man who’s grossly underappreciated for his joy giving amazingness. Because every moment for Matthew McConaughey is a Bro Down Situation. He could play a gay Englishman in his next movie and somehow he’d still do it with a Southern accent and turn every scene into a Bro Down Situation. Full Story

A reader called Leah R sent me this email earlier this week and made me so jealous I couldn’t post it until today. Thank you Leah. But I hate you a little. I’ve been writing about Bill Murray’s amazing randomness for a while. Click here Full Story

Christmas with Mimi and Hello Kitty

Are you grumpy? Don’t fret. Mimi’s here to make it all go away. Did you watch her Christmas Special last night? If you missed it, you missed Joy. Everything she touches, from her microphone to her earpiece to that sleigh in the corner, all of it was tricked out. Mimi’s sh-t needs to be glistening. Full Story

Why is Nic so mad?

Nicolas Cage is currently in Romania shooting, ugh, Ghost Rider 2. On the weekend he hit up a club, then was seen outside in a massive screaming match with a friend before storming off. You know in university when dudes get a little too juiced on a Saturday night and the bouncers throw them out and they end up spit-yelling at each other on the street while their girlfriends cry in the corner? I thought we were brothers, man! Bros for life, man. Full Story

Pitt & Paz

Michael Pitt showed up at a society event in New York last night alongside the likes of Anna Wintour and Marc Jacobs and pouted with his big lips as though being there was an affront to his artistic integrity. That pubic f-ckery on his face is an affront to my visual integrity. Anyone who grooms their sh-t like that is an automatic please leave my party now. Full Story

Posh & the British First Lady

Chill. I know that’s not the official term. But I only have so much room in my titles and “the wife of the Prime Minister” is a f-cking mouthful so can you not be such a tightass this one time and just deal? Because otherwise you won’t fully enjoy the amazingness of these pictures. Full Story

One minute acting

Lainey Posted by Lainey at December 8, 2010 12:20:40 December 8, 2010 12:20:40

A lot of you have been sending me this today: the New York Times video featuring (mostly) world class actors “acting” for a minute. Let’s call this what it is, ok? It’s a little pretentious and contrived. Come on now… The black and white, the music, the self involvement disguised as art – this kind of sh-t alienates people. Full Story

Whooooo’s BLAKE???

Thanks to Stephanie S for alerting me to this – it’s Roger Friedman’s piece today about the Blue Valentine premiere. Roger Friedman is a press person Someone on the circuit. He’s been doing this for a long time. Full Story

Smell another jealous rage?

Remember when this happened? Click here for a refresher on Cameron Diaz throwing herself at Alex Rodriguez in Mexico over Thanksgiving changing her forever in my mind and remind me that she is the girl who lost her sh-t at Justin Timberlake for picking up with Jessica Biel so soon after they split; she is the girl who embarrasses herself at a bar with a douchebag who barely cares. Full Story

Lainey Posted by Lainey at December 3, 2010 14:07:00 December 3, 2010 14:07:00

In the annual recap of our best and worst gossip moments, it’s impossible not to mention Mimi. And several times. So let this be the first. Remember when Mimi went to the Palm Springs Film Festival and got up on stage... drunk!?! Sigh. These are the best gifts. The escort on stage. How she tiptoe skips up to the mic. Full Story
