Almost Canadian

Hilary Duff is engaged to one. And she’s training with him with another. Here she is with fiancé Mike Comrie and Harley Pasternak, both Canadian, after a workout today. Looks great. Really really tight legs, not too thin, not too thick, perfect. Harley trained me for segment recently on etalk. Full Story

For Lolan

Lolan is a longtime reader. LONG time. And Lolan was not happy with me yesterday: Kellan Lutz bone to pick with you. Lainey, you really screwed your readers over by not including some sort of disclaimer with your "A Shirtless Career" post about Kellan Lutz. I clicked on the pictures not prepared for little chunks of vomit that came into my mouth involuntarily. Full Story

We all know about Robert Downey Jr’s rise from self destruction to becoming one of the hottest commodities in Hollywood. But also… Jason Bateman. Although the effects of his demons were much less spectacular, he too struggled with recklessness and eventually realised it was time to clean that sh-t up. Full Story

Scarlett & Ryan: the new power couple

A Tony Award isn’t a People’s Choice Award. A Tony Award is a big deal. And now Scarlett Johansson has been confirmed as a Tony Award-winning actor. She’s just 25 years old. Pretty impressive. Scarjo of course is married to Ryan Reynolds, star of the upcoming Green Lantern. We are a LONG way off from seeing The Green Lantern but The Green Lantern is already moving to a sequel. Full Story

Hair Club for No One

It’s Brendan Fraser. The title should be self explanatory, non? Fraser was spotted shopping at Samy Cameras yesterday in LA spending some of that Mummy money on photography. And he needs another Mummy movie soon. Because lately Brendan Fraser has been for sh-t at the box office. Fraser can currently be seen in theatres in a movie called Furry Vengeance. Full Story

Ryan in the kitchen

Ryan Gosling was spotted on set of that untitled Dan Fogelman comedy yesterday, headlined by Steve Carell, also starring Emma Stone, wearing the sh-t out of that suit and now this day is shot for concentration. Goddamn that is too much. TOO much. Last week I hear Ryan worked on a scene in which his character makes breakfast while singing Springsteen’s I’m On Fire . Full Story

Opposite sides...

Of the country this weekend – Keanu Reeves was in New York going for groceries, has been for a couple of weeks now, and Charlize Theron was back in LA like a hot bitch in Versace at the Spike TV Guys Choice Awards. As noted last week, it seemed sketchy that they’d be dating, and that kiss – click here for a refresher Full Story

The hair is two years old and sucks

Lainey Posted by Lainey at June 7, 2010 12:28:00 June 7, 2010 12:28:00

In Monte Carlo at the opening of the 50th Annual TV Festival, here are the stars of The Vampire Diaries on the red carpet yesterday. Many of you write very often for more pictures and gossip from the show. Am trying though I confess I have never watched it. I am however very, very happy to see that Nina’s part of a project that’s doing so well. Full Story

Ryan Gosling... a new piece?

Lainey Posted by Lainey at June 4, 2010 08:40:47 June 4, 2010 08:40:47

This might ruin your weekend. I’m sorry. You may want to look away. Am currently working from etalk studio at 299 Queen West in Toronto where it’s magazine central. So they highlighted for me a page in the new People. Page 28 if you’re looking. And tucked away in the corner is a small item with a heart marked “flirting”. Full Story

Country Bitch silver and legs

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 27, 2010 10:08:42 May 27, 2010 10:08:42

You call me biased, sure. But I can admit she has great legs. And she is loyal to Idol, I’ll give her that. Here’s Carrie Underwood at the season finale last night in a silver dress and heels and the same hair which is one reason why no matter what she wears it’s like you’ve already seen it. Full Story
