A nude photo situation led to her very first dedicated gossip story in Page Six -- there was no professional downside AT ALL to Alison Pill’s breast reveal. This is our world now. According to Page Six, Alison was “falling down drunk” and talking about her farts on Monday night at a fashion party. Full Story

Again, I feel the urge to apologise first. Not that I’m sorry about them being together and certainly not now having seen them in real life because, Jesus, it’s almost too much sexy in one couple, but sorry that you all seem to harbour some hate for them, or her, and so I’m sorry for the following details from after the screening for The Place Beyond The Pines. Full Story

If you were asked a year ago about who played the best game in the business, would you ever have thought that your answer might be Katie Holmes and Blake Lively? Blake Lively has a lot more game than we ever gave her credit for. How did she DO that? Blake Lively didn’t just punk Leonardo DiCaprio and end up in a marriage; what she did, like a proper CEO, was set a long-range goal with a series of achievable short term targets along the way. Full Story

Of course it’s sad.   It’s never anything but sad.   Two people who wanted to be together forever don’t want that anymore.  It’s always sad.   But also, when I read about the Poehler-Arnett split, two people I’ve never met but, of course, feel like I would like a lot, I get anxious. Full Story

I was a big fan of Jim Carrey when I was a kid. In Living Color was one of my touchstones, one of my earliest influences and it (and Kids in the Hall--hands down, Canada’s most important cultural export besides Strange Brew) was one of the first things that made me want to be a comedian. I loved Carrey on that show. Full Story

There’s one more weekend. I mean I know officially, like, according to science and the almanac people, that summer’s not done until the Autumn Equinox but in spirit, we all know, summer ends after Labour Day weekend. And I only asked for the summer. That they make it through their second summer, Selena and Justin. Full Story

You know what people always say when someone’s an embarrassment? Can we trade him/her? Maybe this is just what happens in Canada. A lot of people have been doing it this week with the announcement of that engagement. You know the one. I’ve even heard Canadians suggest Celine Dion now and again. Full Story
