Mandy Moore out and about on several occasions in NYC over the last few days to promote her new record Wild Hope. Terrible title. Awful, awful cheese title. Like Celine Dion awful. But this is Mandy. And Mandy deserves to be celebrated. For being sweet and normal and smart and not Jessica Simpson, for not starving, for refusing to starve, and for owning her curves – a stand out in Hollywood, worthy of much more praise and fame…. Full Story

The Heartache Diet

When I saw Jessica Simpson in Cannes, she was already tighter than she’d been in months. Told me she was back on her extreme diet and work out plan in preparation for Major Movie Star which starts shooting in July. Shame to waste such energy on a sure box office bomb but as you can see, her hard work is paying off. Full Story

I’m telling you, Rachel Zoe for Cameron Diaz is a resounding smash hit. Grudging sigh. Anyway, here’s Cam tonight in London for Shrek wearing a dress to kill for and slit pockets along the side – love dresses with pockets! Except usually they’re of the baby doll variety on a full-ish skirt. Full Story

A Blonde Break

Over…already? Or over…for now? Kate Hudson and Owen Wilson came out recently, just weeks after getting comfortable with beign photographed together in public, suddenly split because she was reportedly tired of his commitment-phobe bullsh-t. Word is it happened around Memorial Day but while some reports indicate finality, others say it’s another case of John Mayer and Jessica Simpson – make up break up all the time. Full Story

Piss … or Bust

Jessica Simpson and John Mayer on a minibreak in Cabo the other day having what looks like a very serious discussion. She seems like she’s protesting the piss, he appears to be insisting on it as exchange for having to dumb his ass down. Apparently no resolution to the impasse. Is she finally growing a spine? Is she standing up to the Golden Shower and saying N-O, love me for who I am? Not for what you can urinate on? If so… respect. Full Story

Tranny … Step Off

Ummm…she might look a little less bunk and all but, as Dylan would say, trying to lance my Leo is crossing the line. Apparently it went down in Cannes. Last Saturday Jessica Simpson was following Leo around like a love sick tranny, desperately hoping he’d want a taste of her low budget cheese. Full Story

We were duped, I think. All of us were duped. Last week word broke that John and Jessica had broken up, conveniently the same day as her party here in Cannes to announce production on Major Movie Star - a last minute event that attracted surprisingly large numbers… Now Jessica has returned to New York and they’ve gone out on a date already, prompting a reversal – they are apparently back on… Coincidence or conspiracy? This stinks so badly of Joe Simpson I can’t believe I missed it. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

A kinder, gentler Michael Moore? He is without a doubt one of the savviest self promoters in the business, and in combination with Harvey Weinstein, Moore’s strategy to promote his latest documentary Sicko has so far been the talk of the Cannes Film Festival. The Palais was packed today…more packed than I’ve seen it and probably the most packed it will be until the arrival of the Pitt crew.

Sicko is an exposé of the American Health Care System, questioning the merits of a program that is leaving almost 50 million Americans without insurance and comparing the program in the US to what he contends is the superiority of others – namely Canada, France, and England.

I attended the screening and the press conference today – he was challenged, he was applauded, he was ridiculed and while I don’t always agree on his arguments or his presentation of what he calls his facts, I will say that the man is endlessly fascinating and even more so now, as his approach this time appears to be less vitriolic and less confrontational – in the film at least – than in the past.

As for Sicko itself? Of all the Moore productions, although at times typically absurd the way Michael Moore can be typically absurd, this is the one that personally resonated the most. My mother had a kidney transplant - have been wondering all day if we would have had to trade our house for it if we had lived elsewhere.

Sicko opens June 29th. Worth checking out – controversial and compelling and crazy and comical too.

Spoke to Jessica Simpson last night as well. If you can believe it, I actually have nice things to say. Getting ready for more weekend wildness from Cannes. Check back often for new posts below and tomorrow too.

Yours in gossip,
Lainey

PS. Leo is here. And he looked un-f*cking-believable today in his suit, even in the sweltering sun. Time to bump him back up to #1 on the Freebie Five I think. But he might have to fight Javier Bardem for it. Lost my sh-t when I saw him pull up the photo call, will be on the town tonight, keep you posted if there’s any smut.

Karl hates Jessica Simpson but he loves Posh and he loves Lilo. In fact, this is what he once said about the Dirty Face: She"s somebody you want to protect, because she plays dangerously with her own life. She behaves like an over grown up person, and that"s what I like about her. It"s like she"s 45, but in fact, she"s 20. Full Story

But first… I have to tell you about Joe. It was my first time seeing Papa Joe – total sleazy business vibe but the first thing I noticed…this nearly killed me… was his tie. For all the money he gets from pimping his girls, you’d think he could afford something more modern? Look at it! Nothing unsexier than a bad tie, non? OK… so back to Jess. Full Story

Improved but Unwelcome

See what I meant earlier about letting in the riffraff? On the one hand there’s Juliette Binoche, on the other there’s this tranny, looking marginally improved last night in Cannes at the Louis Vuitton party but still far from there. The pattern – isn’t this what you’d slip over a bikini on the beach? Full Story
