Dear Gossips,

Many of you, after my constant campaigning, have ripped through The Hunger Games recently, followed closely by Catching Fire, and have emailed to yell at me for ruining your sleep because, obviously, like Duana last week you couldn’t stop.

Bitches, please. Consider yourself lucky you’ve only had to wait a mere few days for the conclusion.

Am now panicking about when I’ll be able to sequester myself with Mockingjay. I have Lady Gaga tomorrow night and a full day of work plus the gym before the show, not sure if I can wait til Wednesday night during my overnight flight to London. Only one more sleep.

Having said that, enough with the pretenders. Read the latest by Ann Brashares this weekend, My Name Is Memory. Meh. And why is the title so embarrassing? Was mildly intrigued by the ending, although getting there was cheese and pain, only to find out it’s the first of a planned three, and it too sparked a Hollywood bidding war before publication. Everyone wants a movie franchise. Fine, but why does the writing have to suffer?

So The Switch opened in 8th place this weekend. You’ll note the headlines across the board: Jennifer Aniston bombs again! with many “non-gossip-bloggery” outlets calling her out for her film choices, even the Los Angeles Times published an article openly questioning her movie star credentials. Click here to read it. Unfair?

Or is it time for her to own it? Well, it’s not like she needs the money. A review and analysis will be posted later today.

I want to trip with LaLa and Jesus.

Yours in gossip,

Lainey
