The Year of Tina Fey

Yeah it was. Would you walk away from a night with David Beckham to be friends with Tina Fey? Yeah I would. Is Tina Fey > Oprah Winfrey? Yeah she is. MUCH. But for all the “you go girl” ballyhooing that goes on all the time, the estrogen empowerment movement, those MiniVan Majority screechers ready to rip their bras off, sitting in their plush seats at Harpo Studios, do girls really support girls? Especially Quality Girls? Because if that were the case, why aren’t more girls watching 30 Rock? Bet you more girls have watched those f-cking idiots on the Hills than have watched 30 Rock. Full Story

Kate and Cate

Double girl crush! Last year Cate Blanchett was nominated for Best Actress and Supporting Actress at the Oscars. This year, the same honour could go to Kate Winslet, already the youngest actress to received 5 nominations. Kate’s work in Revolutionary Road with Leonardo DiCaprio is, right now, considered a lock. Full Story

Superwomen at the AMAs

Here they are: Alicia Keys, Sarah McLachlan, Queen Latifah, and Pink too delivering two of the finer performances of the evening, Sarah’s voice as sweet as ever, and Alicia’s electrifying rendition with Superwoman alongside Latifah and Kathleen Battle. If you haven’t had the pleasure, both videos are below. Full Story

That’s not a Bella face

Nope. This is Kristen Stewart out and about today in New York and as you can see, as I wrote in the she is gorgeous. Look at that face! Seriously. I came out of that theatre not pining for Rob Pattinson but girlcrushing HARD on Kristen Stewart. Because: - That’s the face of a bitch. That is not Bella. Full Story

Lighting up Paris, Lighting up New York

Lainey Posted by Lainey at November 20, 2008 07:28:00 November 20, 2008 07:28:00

It’s full-on Christmas mode. Am still not completely ready but getting there after seeing these photos of my Marion Cotillard at the Champs Elysees lighting ceremony yesterday. Le sigh. Paris. Did she cut her hair? No matter. She is lovely. As always. And still happily in love with Guillaume Canet. Full Story

First ad of my Marion Cotillard in her new campaign for Dior atop the Eiffel Tower wearing a killer dress designed by John Galliano promoting the bag featuring the unique tower pattern. Divine. More images will be released later this month via LadyDior.com. Marion, the reigning Best Actress Oscar winner, has been busy shooting Nine in London but was in NYC last week with boyfriend Guillaume Canet doing regular gorgeous French people things like bikeriding and shopping at Whole Foods. Full Story

O is for Olga obsessed!

Lainey Posted by Lainey at November 6, 2008 14:40:13 November 6, 2008 14:40:13

Someone needs to have a torrid affair with this woman. And I need to know every detail. Because I love her. Maybe Leonardo Dicaprio. Because he’s disappoint her. And only Olga could react properly. Only a girl like Olga, with all her Eastern European drama, would take a Ukrainian axe to his groin if for missing lift off. Full Story

Who doesn`t…

Love Kate Winslet? I can’t imagine. That unremarkable Hilary Swank has 2 Oscars. Kate Winslet has none. What.The.F*ck??? This is a glorious Kate Winslet on the cover of the new issue of Vanity Fair. Kate has 2 movies contending this awards season and could be competing against herself in the Best Actress Category in both Revolutionary Road with Leonardo DiCaprio and The Reader with Ralph Fiennes, even though that film is not without controversy as producers are accusing Harvey Weinstein of messing with a project, yet again, to the point of mutiny. Full Story

Coveting Kate’s hamstrings

Lainey Posted by Lainey at October 10, 2008 12:17:01 October 10, 2008 12:17:01

It’s always about whose abs you want. Or ass. Or hair. Or nose. It’s never about the hamstrings. Hamstrings are underrated! But I only realised this today. I was just whining at my trainer Hayley yesterday about hamstrings: Why do we have to work on them every time??? Hamstring rolls on that f&cking ball are the worst. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Every Saturday night, Tina Fey keeps rocking my world. Another brilliant performance parodying Palin – did you watch?

That Tina was excellent is no surprise.

The surprise however was Anne Hathaway. Anne Hathaway is a f&cking rock star. She killed it. She totally killed it. From her self-skewering opening monologue to her exuberant farewell, during which she pronounced that it was the best week of her life, Anne Hathaway hosted one of the strongest episodes of Saturday Night Live in a long, long time.

EVERY skit was funny. EVERY skit with her in it was delightful. She was silly, she was game for anything, and the girl can act.

Suddenly I love her. And now there is no question: Lorne will ask her back. To be an SNL repeat is a huge honour. You know Lorne loves my Gwynnie too, right?

And in other New York news…

Yes. Them.

The Brangelunatics are euphoric today because their idols gave them what they wanted.

Pitt Porn.

We’re all a little giddy this morning from the Pitt Porn.

Sunday smut! Enjoy!

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

Dear Gossips,

My husband knows the way to my heart: celebrating 35 with my closest friends overnight at a casino resort.

Please.

It doesn’t get much better.

Unless it’s Tina Fey as Sarah Palin and what’s even more incredible is that they barely, BARELY had to write a script for it…except maybe the part about the “value meal”. Snort. See below if you missed it.

Tina, will you be my friend?

It’s Monday – am blogging all day. Check back often!

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

PS. You think Shelfy Biel would ever do like Scarlett Johansson and pull off a wedding in the wilderness with no leaks and worst still…no paps? Unthinkable.
