Reese Witherspoon modelled a very cute white laser cut two-piece yesterday while walking around LA. Speaking of Blake Lively, Reese too will soon be launching a lifestyle brand called Draper James. There will be retail stores. The first is expected to open next year…while she’s on an Oscar run? I posted about the first trailer for Wild – Hike, Pray, Love – last week. Full Story

Taylor Kitsch was in Brazil for the World Cup. On Friday it was widely reported that he and Colin Farrell are being considered for the second season of True Detective.

Justin Bieber is in Miami, living large. Or trying to. Yachts, girls, beers… It’s the big boy lifestyle. It goes with his muscles. Did you read the NY Mag article about JB that was posted this week, written by Vanessa Grigoriadis?

Dear Gossips,

Sorry about the late start. Was bitten by something last night, probably a spider, and had a bad reaction. The good news: Antihistamines really work. Brange also works. I like waking up to new photos of them looking badass.  Read Full Intro
