Sorry it’s taken so long. Haven’t had a couple of hours straight uninterrupted to sit down and pound it out. Found out about the interview last Wednesday but didn’t want to jinx. Kept expecting something to go wrong – they’d cancel last minute, I’d break my other arm, my producer would change her mind and decide on a different story focus. Full Story

Can’t believe she gave birth 5 weeks ago. Crazy talk. She was wearing a satin grey jumper with Balenciaga heels. Pink lips, little foundation, the most stunning creature you’ve ever seen. I told her I couldn’t believe she just had a baby 5 weeks ago. Then she grabbed her breasts and said “well these weren’t here before!” and threw back her head and laughed like the Queen. Full Story

So I was discharged on Monday morning, we dashed to a random salon to get my hair shampooed because it was rank and stank from sickness, then over to the Carlton for the Indiana Jones junket. Unfortunately Shia had already left as he was on a tight sched but the publicists accommodated my pathetic arm and shuttled me through for Harrison Ford and Cate Blanchett. Full Story

Some things you have to see to believe. Lara and I lost our sh*t last year over Bee Schaeffer and Anna Wintour only to get completely undressed by the divine Ms W. This year it was a different story. But first… Bee was wearing this over-the-top Nina Ricci. She had wanted it to be green a la Poison Ivy but Olivier Theyskens was feeling more purple. Full Story

Had no idea it would be like what it was. All they said was that Motley Crue was making an announcement – the inaugural Crue Fest this summer and a new album – and we were invited to the press conference and interviews with the band afterwards. Full Story

I wrote about the Stephenie Meyers series last year, click here for a refresher. Have since recommended to many of my friends with the following warning: the writing is… grating. You might hate yourself while reading it. Full Story

Still not enough to make me quiver but at least now I “get” it. Why some of you have him listed at #1 on your Freebie Five. I can understand, I can understand in my head, but not in my loins. Because even though his proclivities are certainly suspect, absolutely “the Bube” had a certain charm. Full Story

The best party was a party for the randoms. Aritzia on Bloor Street Monday night – we had the best time. Jena Malone showed up, so did Gus Van Sant (???). Also the dude from Entourage who plays Harvey Weingard, based on Harvey Weinstein. So I was a little drunk when I asked him to swear and spit. Full Story

It’s one of the few downsides of the job and while the snark is occasionally balanced by super love and adoration, when your fantasies about someone turn out to be just that – just fantasies – it absolutely crushes you. Such is the case with Joaquin Phoenix. I am sad. I loved him after Walk the Line. Full Story
