Best of 2008: Granny’s pillow

It was one of our favourite gossip activities this year, non? Watching Granny Freeze Nicole Kidman’s curious baby bump get smaller and smaller as her pregnancy progressed, seeing her at the gym every day, snickering as she’d put her hand repeatedly over her stomach even in “candid” photos just to make sure you knew she was having a Sunday. Full Story

Covering up Cheese Bump

It’s Mimi! And she’s at the centre of all these baby Mimi rumours! So here she is this morning on CBS for the Early Show in support of the Make-A-Wish-Foundation Macy’s “Believe” campaign. Do you see a Cheese Bump? She’s wearing a tight enough dress for it. Me I’m not very good at BumpWatch. Full Story

Last night at the premiere of the Day the Earth Stood Still – Keanu Reeves walked the carpet, spoke with the press, quietly promoted his movie. And then Will Smith and family came along and owned the rest. Will’s son Jaden stars alongside Keanu and Jennifer Connelly. Didn’t see any photos of Jennifer’s husband Paul Bettany. Full Story

Carseats don’t photograph well

Self promotion > child safety… After all, if Granny Freeze had had Sunday Rose in a car seat, the paps would not have been able to pull off such a good shot. And above all things, Nicole Kidman must be seen as a doting mother, a woman transformed by her beautiful little girl. Which is why no one has bothered to call her out on it. Full Story

Holiday white wedgies!

Lainey Posted by Lainey at December 4, 2008 07:34:37 December 4, 2008 07:34:37

The GMD and Little Sci were sighted yesterday in New York…and so were his white wedge sneakers – for extra, extra lift! How many pairs did he custom order? They’re always so new and fresh. You think he has a cobbler on permanent payroll? Someone who knows how to install the height trickery in every pair of new shoes? Like an official Scientologist Cobbler? I am totally convinced… As for Little Sci – so many of you emailed yesterday after seeing Granny Freeze holding her Sunday, remarking that it’s just like how Tom Cruise holds his daughter too… like total novices. Full Story

The hollow protestations of the Brange

Oh please. Brad Pitt sat down with Ann Curry yesterday for an interview that aired on The Today Show this morning. He went head to head with Chicken Fried Britney on Good Morning America. Will be interesting to see how those numbers shook out. Anyway, he and Ann discussed Make It Right Full Story

Sunday Rose: just like Little Sci

Granny and the GMD were together a long time. You learn a lot over a decade. You learn about contracts and marriage, you learn about fraud, you learn about famewhoring, you learn what to do when your back is up against a wall, when your career is in jeopardy, when you can no longer sell a movie… Get your baby daughter to do it for you! As you know, Australia’s box office was decidedly unimpressive over the weekend. Full Story

Granny clutches her womb

Lainey Posted by Lainey at December 1, 2008 16:59:26 December 1, 2008 16:59:26

Again? Not sure. But don’t put it past her to make you think it. Last time she was “pregnant”, Granny Freeze Nicole Kidman made a point, always, of using her hand to draw attention to the fact that she was indeed roasting a Sunday inside her womb. Tonight in Paris at the premiere of Australia, she was at it again… We get it. Full Story

The expanding Taupes

Lainey Posted by Lainey at December 1, 2008 10:28:59 December 1, 2008 10:28:59

The Afflecks arrived yesterday in LA from whereabouts unknown. Ben’s still wearing his hair closely cropped, Taupe’s sweater is another dreary winner, and little Violet, 3 today, is still as happy and as beguiling as ever, the most interesting person in her family. Am told the Taupes were very loving with one another on this occasion. Full Story

Mom time and dad time

Compare the Beckhams and their parenting styles. Oh you judgy moms - you know you love it. After a weekend in New York with the Cruises, every minute commemorated by the paps, Victoria and David parted ways – she to London to promote her copycat dress line, he back to LA with their boys. But not before he spent some time with his sons enjoying the Big Apple. Full Story

No Spanx in NOLA

The Brange spent Thanksgiving in New Orleans but only allowed themselves to be photographed on Sunday when Angelina took Maddox shopping in the French quarter. As you can see, the Jolie has almost lost all her pregnancy weight. But having birthed the Chosen One and most recently the Holy Twins just 5 months ago, she doesn’t have rock hard abs. Full Story
