UK gossips are rumouring that Harry Styles has started up a situation with model Daisy Lowe, daughter of Gavin Rossdale and ex-girlfriend of Matt Smith. They went to a birthday party together, and any hot girl seen in his vicinity is, naturally, totally f-cking him. Since the two were both at the British Fashion Awards last night, that means it has to be true. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

I made meatloaf last night. For the first time ever. Seriously, it turned out amazing. Meatloaf always seemed so complicated. How does it all stay together, like bread? The reason I made meatloaf is because a few weeks ago, someone sent me a copy of Jessica Seinfeld’s The Can’t Cook Book.  Read Full Intro

Dear Gossips,

We interviewed Amy Tan yesterday on The Social. I’ve been a fan a long, long time. Tan is currently promoting her new novel The Valley Of Amazement. It is once again a portrait of a mother-daughter relationship set in a courtesan community in Shanghai over a hundred years ago. So it’s a story about family, sex, and gossip. Obviously I’m all over it. Because the book is good (am currently about half way through) but also because Amy Tan is awesome.

She’s saucy. She’s cheeky. She’s hilarious. She’s super, super stylish. Did you see her in head to toe Issey Miyake, whaaaaaaaaaaat? Also, did you know she’s in a cover band called The Rock Bottom Remainders with other writers like Stephen King and Mitch Albom? They only play for charity. She’s the “lead rhythm dominatrix”. This KILLS me.

Have a great weekend!

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

Carrie Underwood was at the TJ Martell Foundation Gala last night in New York. She’s in town because she’s working on The Sound Of Music, the live television production of The Sound Of Music to air on NBC in December. In which she’s playing Maria von Trapp. Interestingly enough, Maria von Trapp came up in a conversation I had yesterday with Bridget Jones author Helen Fielding at Indigo Full Story
