Jessica Simpson Gossip
Jessica Simpson gossip, latest news, photos, and video.
Jessica Simpson and John Mayer on a minibreak in Cabo the other day having what looks like a very serious discussion. She seems like she’s protesting the piss, he appears to be insisting on it as exchange for having to dumb his ass down. Apparently no resolution to the impasse. Is she finally growing a spine? Is she standing up to the Golden Shower and saying N-O, love me for who I am? Not for what you can urinate on? If so… respect. Full Story
Ummm…she might look a little less bunk and all but, as Dylan would say, trying to lance my Leo is crossing the line. Apparently it went down in Cannes. Last Saturday Jessica Simpson was following Leo around like a love sick tranny, desperately hoping he’d want a taste of her low budget cheese. Full Story
We were duped, I think. All of us were duped. Last week word broke that John and Jessica had broken up, conveniently the same day as her party here in Cannes to announce production on Major Movie Star - a last minute event that attracted surprisingly large numbers… Now Jessica has returned to New York and they’ve gone out on a date already, prompting a reversal – they are apparently back on… Coincidence or conspiracy? This stinks so badly of Joe Simpson I can’t believe I missed it. Full Story
A kinder, gentler Michael Moore? He is without a doubt one of the savviest self promoters in the business, and in combination with Harvey Weinstein, Moore’s strategy to promote his latest documentary Sicko has so far been the talk of the Cannes Film Festival. The Palais was packed today…more packed than I’ve seen it and probably the most packed it will be until the arrival of the Pitt crew.
Sicko is an exposé of the American Health Care System, questioning the merits of a program that is leaving almost 50 million Americans without insurance and comparing the program in the US to what he contends is the superiority of others – namely Canada, France, and England.
I attended the screening and the press conference today – he was challenged, he was applauded, he was ridiculed and while I don’t always agree on his arguments or his presentation of what he calls his facts, I will say that the man is endlessly fascinating and even more so now, as his approach this time appears to be less vitriolic and less confrontational – in the film at least – than in the past.
As for Sicko itself? Of all the Moore productions, although at times typically absurd the way Michael Moore can be typically absurd, this is the one that personally resonated the most. My mother had a kidney transplant - have been wondering all day if we would have had to trade our house for it if we had lived elsewhere.
Sicko opens June 29th. Worth checking out – controversial and compelling and crazy and comical too.
Spoke to Jessica Simpson last night as well. If you can believe it, I actually have nice things to say. Getting ready for more weekend wildness from Cannes. Check back often for new posts below and tomorrow too.
Yours in gossip,
PS. Leo is here. And he looked un-f*cking-believable today in his suit, even in the sweltering sun. Time to bump him back up to #1 on the Freebie Five I think. But he might have to fight Javier Bardem for it. Lost my sh-t when I saw him pull up the photo call, will be on the town tonight, keep you posted if there’s any smut.
Karl hates Jessica Simpson but he loves Posh and he loves Lilo. In fact, this is what he once said about the Dirty Face: She"s somebody you want to protect, because she plays dangerously with her own life. She behaves like an over grown up person, and that"s what I like about her. It"s like she"s 45, but in fact, she"s 20. Full Story
But first… I have to tell you about Joe. It was my first time seeing Papa Joe – total sleazy business vibe but the first thing I noticed…this nearly killed me… was his tie. For all the money he gets from pimping his girls, you’d think he could afford something more modern? Look at it! Nothing unsexier than a bad tie, non? OK… so back to Jess. Full Story
It hurt to write that. Excruciating pain. But during a week of sin and sex, when things get going at 2am, who else could be Queen but Pamela Anderson. She was flown out for a day to promote her sh-t ass movie Blonde and Blonder and also to promote the new Cannes Nikki Beach (a club). We were there for an hour or so last night – it was decadent Euro cheese at its finest: men with chains and tight shirts, women dancing on tables, bad house beats thump thump thumping, every accent imaginable…and some woman singing along to the music, random words from other well known songs ripped off to match whatever melody just happened to be playing and then screeching – NIKKI BEACH! – every 5 seconds. Full Story
See what I meant earlier about letting in the riffraff? On the one hand there’s Juliette Binoche, on the other there’s this tranny, looking marginally improved last night in Cannes at the Louis Vuitton party but still far from there. The pattern – isn’t this what you’d slip over a bikini on the beach? Full Story
Last time my Gwyneth looks this sh-tty she was pregnant…just saying. Love that she’ll go to Orso without a trace of makeup. But don’t love her Chef’s Costume (???) and those pants are cutting her off at the wrong place. As for the hair – you all hate the hair. I know. Full Story
LOVE New York! Arrived late last night, back briefly in Vancouver before heading to Edmonton this afternoon – a few quick lingering thoughts re: Costume Gala etc first…
And had the honour of interviewing the most amazing woman yesterday for eTalk. Her name is Brandusa Niro (no stranger to the fashion cognoscenti out there) editor in chief of The Daily which of course is devoured by every style know-it-all during New York Fashion Week twice a year and editor in chief of the Fashion Mini – like an Us Weekly for the fashion industry, fashion gossip for the fashion insider – now published every month but up to this point sold only in select cities in the US…until now. Available in Canada starting July…love, love, love.
It’s Wednesday, live blogging, check back often for new posts.
Yours in gossip,
PS. Re: Cate Blanchett…yes, I’ve seen the photo printed by the UK tabloids accusing anorexia, and I’ve read your emails blasting me for saying she looked great at the Gala. Believe whatever you want but that photo was taken from a ridiculously bad angle under the most terrible light inside a white tent with every kind of weird glare bouncing from side to side and up and down. Girl is naturally slender anyway and also naturally pretty pale. Because she’s not Jessica Simpson obsessively on a tanning bed! Anyway, at one point, I was standing 5 feet away from her. She was not shockingly thin, she was not deathly thin, no one gasped – as suggested by the rags. There were no “murmurs” of alarm about her frame and everyone I was around seemed to be in agreement with her gorgessity, including members of our crew that consisted of a non-fashion dude cameraman who doesn’t know a Stam from a Birkin - even he was impressed by her beauty. But that’s boring right? Stick thin sells papers, period…but nevermind that last Fall she signed onto a film called Cancer Vixen based on Marisa Acocella Marchetto"s real life battle with the disease. By the way – did you know that Christian Bale lost 65 pounds for a movie called The Machinist and no one lost their sh-t? Sorry, I digress. All I’m saying is give her some credit. It’s CATE BLANCHETT and not some learning impaired Hollywood starlet battling the Hollywood standard. You think the formidable Cate Blanchett would succumb to vain starvation? Please.
The Oscars are the Oscars – no equal in terms of prestige. But not everyone goes to the Oscars. Not everyone is invited. Not everyone has the opportunity to represent an Oscar-calibre film.
But the Costume Institute Gala… the Costume Institute Gala is another beast entirely.
Thanks to your visits and your support of this site, I have been fortunate to cover the Oscars, the Junos, and the Toronto International Film Festival on behalf of eTalk and I’m telling you, in terms of star power and shameless amusement, none compare to the Costume Institute Gala…simply because it’s just so.well.attended. Like seriously… they ALL show up!
When you get to these events, members of the media receive what’s called a “Tip Sheet” – a list of expected attendees just as a heads up of who to look out for. More often than not, the tip sheet is a Wish List. They’ve been invited, but there’s never any guarantee that they’ll come. And 9 out of 10 times, the tip sheet comes up woefully short.
But the Tip Sheet at the Costume Institute Gala ran 3 pages long FRONT AND BACK. That’s 30 names per side, almost six full sides. So before it all kicked off, our crew was in the holding area picking off the best bets, salivating over the prospect of a certain arrival, almost sure that we’d be sorely disappointed. And then they came. They ALL came. A clusterf-ck of A List strutting, posing, sauntering down the carpet. THEY ALL CAME. One after another, car after car dropping off a bigger name than before. Yes… I lost my sh-t.
And course… Jessica Simpson and Lindsay Lohan came last. All details below, including smutty observations and fashion commentary.

PPS. I’m sorry if your favourite star isn’t included – as I’ve mentioned, EVERYONE showed up. Too many to count!
PPS. The world never ceases to amaze. Can you believe Paris Hilton actually has a fan? A fan willing to issue death threats in her defence? More on that later.
