This is the cover for the new issue of FLARE -- Paulina Gretzky, daughter of Canadian legend Wayne, who, according to the magazine, “has set her sights on the entertainment business”. Which is a great way of saying she just wants to be famous. I wrote about Paulina back in May Full Story

Eva Mendes has really good New Year’s hair, non? SO good. I want it. Eva recently celebrated her second Christmas with Ryan Gosling. This will be her second NYE with him. What? No, no, don’t do that. Don’t make that your New Year’s resolution. This is unkind. Let us go forward in 2013 accepting that this may be his most significant relationship, even more significant than Rachel McAdams. Full Story

Michael Buble and his wife Luisana were up at Vancouver’s Grouse Mountain in the snow yesterday. It was apparently the first time for her family from Argentina. You know what I like about Michael Buble though? He would have been very generous about this. Money can be weird in families, especially when you mix them. Full Story

This is the sh-t that really, REALLY makes me crazy. Like, when did they introduce new rules? People my age didn’t get the update. Is it true that when someone comes to your house now you don’t have to show them respect? You remember that incident with Justin Bieber wearing overalls when he was being honoured by the Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper? Click here Full Story

I mean, 50 years ago they would have sent you home for wearing jeans to work on casual Fridays. My European father-in-law considers it poorly mannered for a man to speak with his hands in his trouser pockets. My parents-in-law also frown on paper plates and cups. And my ma, who’s always critical of the low classy but who isn’t exactly high classy herself, snarls at people who “lean”. Full Story

To American gossips returning from Thanksgiving holiday -- is it a good welcome back or a sh-t welcome back to see Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling enjoying a few days off in New York, arm in arm? Some of you insisted, via my inbox, that since they’d not been photographed together in weeks while he was in Austin and Mexico on Terrence Malick’s movie and she was in New England shooting with Larry David, that it must have meant they’d cooled. Full Story

What a wonderful way to celebrate American Thanksgiving -- with the highest quality French Canadian cheese. Better this than the sad smut situation that Gabriel Aubry’s involved in. Celine Dion was in Germany yesterday to collect her Bambi Award. Look at her, holding it as though it were alive, like it could converse. Full Story

Yesterday Selena Gomez was blocking Justin Bieber from all her devices which, amazingly, is not a euphemism for anything. A reader called Mrs P wrote to me the other day about her "idiot daughter (17) and her idiot boyfriend" trying to break up for the better part of a year as evidence that Selena and JB are the same. Full Story

Here’s how it went down when I was in school: The breakup happens. I tell my friends and he tells his friends. My friends tell his friends that I hate him and I’ll never forgive him. His friends tell my friends that he never did what I think he did and that he still likes me. Full Story
