Have you read, I’ll Have What She’s Having? The author, Rebecca Harrington, experiments with different celebrity diets, from Marilyn Monroe (eggs whipped in milk) to Madonna’s arduous and seemingly impossible macrobiotic diet. It’s funny, yes, but also an illuminating look at what it takes to maintain the “ideal body” of the day. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

As mentioned last week, I will be defending Raziel Reid’s When Everything Feels Like The Movies on Canada Reads in March. The book was inspired by the true story of a 15 year old boy called Larry who was bullied at school for wearing makeup and heels.  Read Full Intro

Dear Gossips,

Have you read The Girl On The Train by Paula Hawkins yet? Are you reading The Girl On The Train by Paula Hawkins? It’s the hot book of the season. It’s the most disciplined I’ve had to be about a book in a long time.  Read Full Intro

Dakota Johnson covers the new issue of VOGUE in anticipation of Fifty Shades Of Grey’s February release. It will be one of many interviews and photos we see of her, but this is certainly a showpiece of her promotional push. I mean, it’s VOGUE, right? Before we get into the interview, let’s talk about Dakota Johnson getting a VOGUE cover to promote a film that no one has seen, based on a terrible book that almost everyone has read. Full Story

I feel like it’s one of Jamie Dornan’s key messages: you will not see his dick in Fifty Shades Of Grey. Dornan covers the latest issue of Variety in advance of the film’s February 13 release. Just 3 weeks away now. And, as I’ve been telling you, almost to the point of creepiness now, I can’t wait. Full Story

The NBA was in the UK last night. The Milwaukee Bucks played the New York Knicks.

Dear Gossips,

Thank you for all your emails and tweets about my chicken pox paranoia because I’ve never had it. Here’s what you all are telling me:  -Adult chicken pox is the worst -Shingles sucks more than chicken pox -You can get chicken pox again – many of you claim to have had it twice, first as a child and recently, mildly, as an adult -Angelina Jolie totally has chicken pox -Angelina Jolie doesn’t have chicken pox -Go get the shot, it works -Don’t go get the shot, it doesn’t work -Definitely do the antibody test to see if your body already has built up an immunity My appointment is on Thursday.  Read Full Intro

Check out George Clooney in costume on the set of Hail Caesar in LA yesterday. It’s a Coen Brothers movie. It’s about old Hollywood and a guy who did a lot of the dirty work back then to protect the stars when they f-cked up. I wonder if it’s based on a book I read last year called The Fixers: Eddie Mannix, Howard Strickling and the MGM Publicity Machine by E J Fleming because Josh Brolin, who’s apparently the lead in the film, is playing Eddie Mannix. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

This fall I read Sheila Weller’s new book The News Sorority about Christiane Amanpour, Diane Sawyer, and Katie Couric. SO good. Empowering and dishy at the same time – like good gossip? A debate for another day.  Read Full Intro

In addition to Benedict Cumberbatch, Reese Witherspoon was also one of the surprise names left off the list of Independent Spirit Award nominees. Reese is considered to be in the second position, after Julianne Moore, for Best Actress Oscar nominee for her performance in Wild. And if we’re working on the McConaissance plan (his agent, Jim Toth, is her husband), ideally she’d be at the Spirits the night before Oscar Sunday. Full Story
