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,

Dear Gossips,

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


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,


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.

Here’s a novel idea: write before you can act. Tina Fey became famous for her brain and her sense of humour stands today as the most respected woman in the business. Do parent pimps look to Tina Fey for inspiration? Do they enroll their kids in creative writing instead of Star Search? Doubtful. Full Story

Duana and I disagree on many things – Michael Phelps, her hair, my hair, Anne Hathaway – but we are most diametrically opposed on the subject of Natalie Portman. Duey can’t bear Natalie Portman. I, on the other hand, worship Natalie Portman. Here she is, at various engagements during the Venice Film Festival, looking impossibly beautiful and natural and effortless, dressed down or dressed up. Full Story

TDK is on pace to break every record known to Shiloh, and you bet your boob job all the Hello Kitties will help it get there. Cartoons, capes, and anything American…they will wait in line for a week.

Yesterday was supposed to be the last day of shooting on Labour Pains. Somehow Lindsay Lohan made it through an entire production without a bout of exhaustion, without a visit to the hospital, without prompting a stern letter from an executive producer blasting her poor work ethic. Could it be the loving support of Samantha Ronson? Hottest couple of the summer! Check out SamRo blowing Lilo a kiss goodbye yesterday leaving her lover to work on set. Full Story

Thank Xenu that the GMD would not give his permission. Thank Xenu he’s a f&cking idiot. Because The Dark Knight with Katie Holmes in it would not have been the same film. Maggie Gyllenhaal is so much better. Maggie has a brain. Maggie also has style… This is my Maggie with her Peter last night looking so lovely, the loveliest shoulders, the loveliest neck, the loveliest un-generic face, and such a lovely dress. Full Story
