Lainey Posted by Lainey at March 5, 2007 12:00:00 March 5, 2007 12:00:00

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

Lainey Posted by Lainey at March 5, 2007 12:00:00 March 5, 2007 12:00:00

"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

Monday, February 26, 2007 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.
Tuesday, February 20, 2007 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

Lainey Posted by Lainey at February 20, 2007 12:00:00 February 20, 2007 12:00:00

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

Britney: on JJ and JT

First clear shot of Jayden James – not seen since birth amid speculation that Britney was hiding him for a variety of reasons, one tabloid going so far as to suggest in a blind item that it was because he was born with a noticeable physical abnormalities caused by pregnant drug-using. Not that I’m an expert or anything but he looks pretty healthy to me. Full Story

GMD & RoboBride Oscar-bound

Lainey Posted by Lainey at February 16, 2007 12:00:00 February 16, 2007 12:00:00

More presenters announced yesterday and high profile ones at that. Ben Affleck, Kate Winslet, my Kiki Dunst, and yes…the Gay Midget Dwarf makes his return. He’s a studio boss now, haven’t you heard? Everyone has to play with Tom. And although we all might find him annoying, admit it… adding him and Katie to the red carpet intrigue on Oscar night spices up the fun factor non? Especially since Nicole Kidman is already confirmed to attend. Full Story

Love & Loss with Gwyneth Paltrow

Lainey Posted by Lainey at February 14, 2007 12:00:00 February 14, 2007 12:00:00

Why worship my Gwynnie? Because Gwyneth is The Other Girl. Not the one who gives up everything for love, not the one who doesn’t run the relationship, not the one who gets stepped over…never Gwyneth. Gwyneth is always the girl who is loved MORE. Gwyneth is the girl THEY have to get over. Gwyneth is the Gold Standard. Full Story

Worst Taupe: Ben & Jen

Lainey Posted by Lainey at January 16, 2007 12:00:00 January 16, 2007 12:00:00

Surprise, surprise. So the Afflecks have never walked a carpet together as a couple but on this night, with JLo in attendance, all of a sudden it’s not only a united front, it’s also happy happy PDA – everyone’s a famewhore, see? It’s just too bad Jennifer’s game came up so short. Taupe in a beaded white gown, totally washed out against pale lips and limp hair, taupe that bleeds and infects those around her, taupe passed on to her husband, once a rather exciting badboy, now equally as boring as Taupe – no wonder I’m almost asleep…  Full Story

The Golden Globes

Always good for a surprise or two and this year the best chance for my Borat to be honoured. I think he’ll take Best Actor in a Comedy even in the face of formidable competition from Johnny’s Captain Sparrow. But the question is: will Sacha come as Sacha or will Sacha arrive as Borat? Well…given that Isla Fisher will be on his arm, chances are Borat will either be stuck in Kazakhstan or at an Anti-Gypsy Conference discussing effective eradication options. Full Story

Nick Lachey’s Good Year

Lainey Posted by Lainey at January 8, 2007 12:00:00 January 8, 2007 12:00:00

Also at the GM gala this weekend and what a difference 12 months makes. Do you remember the same event last year? On the heels of his separation, Jessica had been linked to everyone from Jude Law to Johnny Knoxville to Adam Levine, and both Adam AND Nick show up at the venue…it was totally awkward, smutty reports flying left and right, Nick kept his head down and took the blows. Full Story
