Cory’s moves

Lainey Posted by Lainey at April 18, 2011 14:47:56 April 18, 2011 14:47:56

You know who isn’t young, famous, and mean? He’s young and famous, yes. But the mean part, it’s not Cory Monteith. Cory was at Coachella too (Memo to Cory – but you’re checking your iphone for Canucks updates every few minutes during games, right?) and working some moves on a pretty girl…who seems like a good match, at least in height. Full Story

Vampire Diaries Last Dance

Lainey Posted by Lainey at April 18, 2011 08:55:00 April 18, 2011 08:55:00

Written by Duana Oh, you guys. I am so excited. What I’ve heard, but not seen, is that the VD deliciousness gets an extra special swirl when these guys are high school kids – like, going to sock hops and hanging out in the cafeteria – while vamping out and worrying whether good ol’ Tyler is going to come home and cause problems. Full Story

Rachel & the Old 97s

Lainey Posted by Lainey at April 7, 2011 13:42:58 April 7, 2011 13:42:58

Rachel McAdams is at home in Toronto. And last night she was at the Horseshoe Tavern for the Old 97s show. Here she is outside with a few friends. So beautiful. Am told from people inside that she was glowing, that in person she was even more gorgeous. I know what you’re about to ask: is she still with Michael Sheen?!?!? They haven’t been papped together since February when he took her home to Wales after travelling together to Ireland. Full Story

Ryan Gosling ruins Wednesday productivity

I was at the airport when the Crazy, Stupid, Love trailer dropped yesterday. I watched it in the lounge, then got on the plane, and by the time I landed in Toronto 5 hours later, my inbox was full of your horny panting emails. And he lit up everywhere on the internet too as every blog and entertainment news site tried, and in some cases failed, to avoid the headline: Ryan Gosling is crazy, stupid, hot. Full Story

Ryan is thin

Lainey Posted by Lainey at April 1, 2011 10:16:53 April 1, 2011 10:16:53

Definitely thinner lately, right? Just me? Ryan Reynolds was in Vegas for CinemaCon yesterday to promote The Green Lantern (with Blake Lively, more on her later) and to collect his award for Male Star of the Year. As you can see, he has a new shorter haircut. I’m telling you, his face looks a lot more drawn. Full Story

Or… Sidney! Neve Campbell was in Toronto at the Marilyn Denis Show today promoting Scream 4. Not really sure about her choice in footwear but she looks good, right? Neve is single now but told Health Magazine recently that after having spent so much time on humanitarian missions in South Africa, she is becoming more and more serious about adoption. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

I know I sound like a major home teamer but Drake hosted the SH-T out of the Juno Awards last night in Toronto. It was something for everyone. Appropriate for everyone. Cool without crossing the line, respectful without being ass kissy, funny and engaging without seeming like he was trying too hard.  Read Full Intro

This is especially relevant for women 40 – 60 years old. Full Story

SO good, right? Ryan Gosling continues to work on The Ides of March in Michigan with George Clooney and Philip Seymour Hoffman – my Haymitch in The Hunger Games, although I could be persuaded into something really, really out of the box, I mean it has to be f-cking crazy, no one would ever think it, so original. Full Story

Filler Palate Cleanser breakup or not

Lainey Posted by Lainey at March 24, 2011 09:45:00 March 24, 2011 09:45:00

Rachel Bilson is what you call filler content on a blog between articles. Like, you’re in that dead zone between morning and afternoon when the photo agencies are loading up new content and you don’t want to go front heavy, particularly today as I’m trying to pace out my posts for when I fly in a few hours and oh look, there’s a Rachel Bilson story… I’d never lead with Rachel Bilson because, obviously. Full Story
