Jennifer Garner at the Oscar de la Renta opening last night. As you can see, Taupe is aglow and ataupe all at once. Even in black, she’s actually still Taupe. Well done. Well done and well played too? Remember, Taupe is still trying to go from Alias to the big screen – so many tv girls trying to be a bonafide movie stars. Full Story

Apple under attack!

So many of you have emailed, mocking my Apple’s little face, particularly her odd looking eyebrows as seen on an outing with Grandma Blythe in LA. To me, they look drawn on, perhaps from playing dressup because as you can see from another outing, this time with mum, the Dietrich brows aren’t there. Full Story

Jennifer Lopez vs Taupe?

To look at? JLo all the way. Here she is in NYC again in fur and skulls and open toe shoes - true diva contradiction. And on the west coast in LA, on the same day, here are Ben and Jen Taupe – casual, unassuming, low key, in love, nice, fine, a comfortable couch, boring as all f&ck. But then there’s Jennifer Lopez earlier this week during a performance – Marc joined her on stage, they were intimate, they were sweet, they looked deeply into each others eyes, they sang together…and afterwards she turned to the audience and said: "How you like them apples? That"s my baby, for better or for worse!" Your smutty sense go off? Sure, sure. Full Story

All kindsa cute. First – David Banda on a skateboard while Mother Madge looks on in London. Then – the incomparable Violet Affleck looking more like Dad every day. And finally – Deacon Phillippe out for ice cream with Reese, definitely my favourite of the lot. Check out his pre-tantrum expression – nap time evidently overdue. Full Story

My Gwyneth’s Apple has been largely ignored thanks to little Violet Affleck these days but look – Apple on a playdate with Christy Turlington and Grace. And I know you hate Gwynnie, I know you can stand her smug ass face…but don’t try and tell me her child isn’t gorgeous. Don’t try. Don’t lie. One day…Apple and Romeo Beckham. Full Story

Violet Forever

I take after my mother one respect. Not so much in the extreme – she frightens children and animals – but like her, I’m not baby crazy or baby gushy and while I love the babies that belong to my friends, I am also very happy that those babies are going home with them and not me. But then I see Violet Affleck. Full Story

Battle of the Daddies: Ben vs Ryan

In one corner: Ben in White Rock (just outside of Vancouver) this weekend for a little family time. The reformed Ben Affleck, thanks to shades of Taupe and Violet, every inch the wonderful husband and doting father. In the other corner: Ryan Phillippe and the adorable Deacon and his sister Ava in LA. Full Story

Rachel McAdams: justifying the hype

"I hadn"t been that impressed with someone since I worked with Meryl Streep"- Diane Keaton on Rachel McAdams, in the pages of the new Elle showcasing Rachel in several couture creations criticised on the Oscar red carpet. Note the cover - remember Beyonce? Armani Prive? I still don"t like the dress but on Rachel, it"s hella more palatable, maybe because she"s not rockin" a ghetto weave and showing off her pits. Full Story

Dear Gossips, It’s just after midnight, have a couple of hours to blog before heading off for a few morning show interviews re: Oscar round up. Please excuse typos and mistakes? Still a few hours to go til the end of an all nighter and still pretty jacked about tonight. Seriously gossips…the red carpet is a level of crazy you have to see to believe. And believe me, it is coordinated with military precision… as in a holding tent just before the photo wall, perfectly timed for staggered arrivals – on tv it looks like there are a thousand people milling about haphazardly but in reality? Absolute clockwork. We were the only crew in Canada to have two exclusive positions: one strategically placed on the carpet for all arrivals and another on a balcony overlooking the corridor going into the Kodak and just above Andre Leon Talley’s position and Ellen Degeneres camera corner. Believe me, we saw everything. But first things first – Tom and Katie did not do the pre-show. Katie in fact was nowhere to be found. And if she was, we didn’t see her. I’m sure by now however you’ve heard the reports that they showed up with Little Sci at rehearsal on Saturday and introduced her to, like, every member of the crew. Ben Affleck was without Jennifer Garner. More on that tomorrow. Ryan Gosling was without Rachel McAdams. More on that later and seriously, there really is absolutely NO smutty tingling there. McGoslings – I’m telling you, you need to chill out. All the dirt I can possibly remember mixed in with style review below. I fly home Monday night. Will post as much as I can until I pass out. Yours in gossip, Lainey PS. There was a glitch on the site earlier that has now been fixed. A thousand apologies for the inconvenience. PPS. The live telecast was a trip. Stressful but a trip. Thanks for all your emails of support. I’m so sorry I’m not able to reply to them all but I promise, I’ve read each and every one. PPPS. Remember – the blog works in reverse chronological order. Posts at the top are the most recent. To start at the beginning, scroll down and click on View More Articles. PPPS. Andre Leon Talley is the new Hoff.

Dear Gossips, Lurid details of Britney’s disturbing weekend continue to pour in - sounds like her mother might be cutting her off in a desperate and dramatic attempt to force her hand. More below. On to something more cheerful, shall we? Oscars are only 5 days away. An exclusive new prize pack to be announced later today, stay tuned… Meanwhile, Tobey Maguire and Anne Hathaway have been added to the presenter slate joining an already star-studded list that includes: Clooney, Cam, Hanks, Reese, Bond, Hugh Jackman, Nicole Kidman, Ben Affleck, and the Gay Midget Dwarf. Needless to say, this does not include the nominees. Hopefully it’ll be a carpet to die for. Sunday night – get your ballots ready. Tuesday is media day, will be in and out so blogging on the fly, check back often for fresh posts. If you’re in Vancouver, tune in to Urban Rush – I’ll be joining Mike and Fiona today for Academy Award dish. Yours in gossip, Lainey PS. To Teresa O and Marco D of Mackenzie Financial – a little late but my congratulations nonetheless on the promotion! PPS. The Wrong Gender is not Jennifer Aniston. Jennifer Aniston can’t afford anything but hetero. This girl on the other hand has already disappointed the MiniVan Majority before, though I’m still not clear who she was exactly at the time. There are, apparently, several of her.

The Oscar EX Carpet

My Gwyneth is going to the Oscars! My Gwyneth! And Jennifer Lopez too! Two Ben Affleck exes on the same carpet at the time... Awkward. Love.It. Also an abundance of ex GMD beards too. Nicole Kidman, Penelope Cruz, the RoboBride on his arm...makes for some interesting PR maneuvering to avoid a collision, or perhaps Nicole and Keith will go in for the killer photo opp and pose together? Love. Full Story
