Yesterday at the Fox upfronts, the stars of Glee were trotted out in front of industry folks all in service of the fall season. As you can see, Glee only has one star. Full Story

Karl Lagerfeld screened his short film Remember Now in St Tropez yesterday. All his skinny bitches were summoned to support him. Mostly models of course but also two of his favourites Vanessa Paradis and Diane Kruger with boyfriend Joshua Jackson. This is the second outing in a row that she’s toted around that basket. Full Story

Missing Lost Tuesday

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 11, 2010 07:17:59 May 11, 2010 07:17:59

It’s a new episode tonight. There are only 2 new episodes left before the 2.5 hr season finale on Sunday May 23. And I am missing them. F-ck. As already noted, Lost brings me a considerable amount of stress. The show itself and its puzzles obviously but also not being able to watch while travelling and avoiding spoilers. Full Story

Are you staying?

Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson, after spending a few loved up days in Paris last week, arrived in Nice today for some kind of Chanel party in Cannes. And of course the festival begins in 2 days. Will they stay? The outlook is good. Diane is a Cannes favourite. They've enjoyed it there several times before, most recently last year for Inglourious Basterds. Full Story

The Anniversary of their Sex

Lainey Posted by Lainey at April 30, 2010 08:20:53 April 30, 2010 08:20:53

Today is a very, very special today. It’s one of the most precious days of all f-cking time. Can you hear the doves? They are singing and fluttering and our hearts should be soaring with the memory and the love and the joy of the memory of the love and the passion of the soul and the miracle of the life. Full Story

Losing Glee?

Lainey Posted by Lainey at April 27, 2010 09:33:36 April 27, 2010 09:33:36

I watched the Madonna Glee episode last Sunday before leaving for Barbados. On Twitter I noted that it was fun, the music, remembering the songs... and that’s it. Many of you emailed asking about my thoughts, why I never blogged about the episode afterwards. Well... what’s there to say? Michelle perhaps said it best when she emailed Duana and me last night after catching up on Glee and wrote: “I’m afraid I’m falling out of love with it”. Full Story

I call it “LA Face”

The Vancouver Canucks advanced last night to the second round of the 2010 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs with a win over Los Angeles in Los Angeles. We have Canucks season tickets. Had a Game 7 been necessary, we would have been there. Unwillingly. Because it’s so much stress. Too much stress. Needless to say, I came home to a happy husband. Full Story

Josh & Diane: springtime in New York

Lainey Posted by Lainey at April 21, 2010 10:28:11 April 21, 2010 10:28:11

Jude & Sienna were featured yesterday. So pretty. But Josh & Diane could probably rival that. They are remarkably similar. Without all the drama. Here they are, Joshua Jackson and Diane Kruger, back in New York after his Genie-winning trip last week in Toronto. A very pretty love stroll. Josh has apparently wrapped on this season of Fringe, will resume late summer for the third, and it looks like, for now anyway, that they have some free time. Full Story

The Green Lantern’s orange face

Lainey Posted by Lainey at April 20, 2010 15:23:09 April 20, 2010 15:23:09

I have ragged on him for his over-foundation face but Ryan Phillippe seems to have taken that title from him (see Saturday Night Live last Saturday) and Ryan Reynolds is currently in New Orleans, pictured here on set shooting The Green Lantern, so let’s assume that it’s some kind of action sequence during which he narrowly escaped incineration and forgive the tangerine hue. Full Story
