McGosling glimmer

I thought they were nuts. Then the Twi-Hards came along and redefined crazy. But before Stephenie Meyer ignited the lunatic gene in those losers, the McGoslings did indeed foam all over the internets hoping the real life rowboat would happen. Oh those halcyon days. When Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling rushed across the MTV stage and gave us a kiss to remember forever… It ended eventually and for a while there, especially this past spring, it looked like The Notebook had been burned beyond recognition. Full Story

Hand clasp or finger link?

Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry went out last night. So perfect. Ugh. Anyway, note the way they’re holding hands. We talked about this backstage at a live show recently, Dylan and I. A live show is a lot of standing around. At eTalk they get us all dressed up and made up hours before so we can shoot next day links and then we end up waiting for hours until we go to air. Full Story

Mike’s still around

Many of you have emailed about whether or not Hilary Duff and Mike Comrie are still together. This should answer your question? He was photographed coming out of her trailer today in New York on the set of Gossip Girl. And Scott S emailed the other day (thanks Scott, say hi to Laney and Judson!) to say that he saw them at Union Square on Saturday so it sounds like Mike’s been with her the whole time…because he has a lot of time… NHL training camps don’t begin for another couple of weeks but even so, Mike was not re-signed by the Ottawa Senators and so far no one has picked him up as a free agent. Full Story
