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

For those of you - all of you -- who don’t remember, his name is Alexander Ludwig and he played Cato in The Hunger Games. It appears as though he’s working from the book of Jena Malone and Sam Claflin -- this is turning out to be a rather enterprising cast, isn’t it? -- and self-starting a campaign to be selected for the coveted role of Four in Divergent. Full Story

So about this potential Justin Bieber scandal with the stolen laptop and the threat of a bombshell release -- Gawker posits that it’s a publicity stunt, and I’m always on board for a famewhore theory so, assuming that it does end up being a hoax to elicit maximum coverage for a new video or whatever, the question is whether or not it’s a good move. Full Story

You know how I feel about BumpWatch: it’s an insufferably unreliable form of gossip reporting and besides, how can we argue about promoting healthy body types when we accuse women of pregnancy if they migrate healthily from a size 0 to a size 2? Blanket Watch on the other hand... Blanket Watch, as non-physical camouflage, now that might be a more accurate gossip indicator. Full Story

Ryan Gosling was papped yesterday in Austin. He went to the gym with a friend wearing a Rick Hansen t-shirt. Rick Hansen is a big ass deal for us in Canada. Hansen celebrated the 25th anniversary of his Man In Motion tour in May after a 9 month anniversary tour that ended in Vancouver, BC, same place that marked the end of his journey AROUND THE WORLD IN HIS WHEELCHAIR a quarter of a century before, all in the name of spinal cord research. Full Story

This broke yesterday and I smutty tingled to it but now there are proper pap photos taken the night before the Emmys of the two of them together after dinner and, well, I’ve never been more interested in Seth MacFarlane than I am now, I guess, but... Seth MacFarlane and the Khaleesi? Did you know that Seth MacFarlane used to deal with Amanda Bynes? And Audrina Patridge? And maybe Ashley Greene? That’s a lot of moons of his life. Full Story

Alison Pill has arrived

Lainey Posted by Lainey at September 13, 2012 20:28:37 September 13, 2012 20:28:37

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

No , no. Not hair. But there are a lot of people who just met Alison Pill today. You would have known her already if you know your Cancon. Or if you’ve seen the movies and tv shows she’s been in including - just some - Milk, In Treatment, Midnight In Paris and, of course, The Newsroom. 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
