Weekend Winner

It’s an easy prediction. Drew Barrymore’s directorial debut opens on Friday and, without significant competition, riding the wave of positive buzz, calling on the “Girl Power” collective, Whip It should win at the box office this weekend. I’ve not seen it yet. I did however note the remarks of my colleagues back at TIFF Full Story

Work those hips

Gerard Butler need not worry. About his career, yes. But about his pants problem? Not as much as Brendan Fraser. Last week I posited that Gerry’s pants were the most embarrassing in the business. That was before Brendan arrived at LAX looking like this. His are the mature version of Robert Pattinson’s mothering hips. Full Story

Same old Scabby naked

Note: Partial nudity Surprise! It’s Filthy Scab Pamela Anderson in New Zealand walking down the runway for Richie Rich. And somehow her tit popped out. Oh and her ass too. They call it fashion. This is fashion??? Scabby is supposedly broke. Apparently she’s $1.2 million in the hole after renovating her house last year. Full Story

Sarah McLachlan delivered a stirring performance last night at the Emmy Awards during the In Memoriam section of the show. Sarah left Vancouver on Friday with her girls for a few days in LA looking healthy and gorgeous and glowing and fresh… It’s been a wonderful summer. She’s completely devoted to her daughters, of course, but there’s also love in her life again. Full Story

Ebola destroys again

This comes as no surprise. For many reasons. Us Weekly reports that Avril Lavigne and Deryck Whibley are done. That she told him she wanted out and that divorce papers will be filed imminently. He is apparently “crushed”. Full Story

Ryan & Kat: Twitter clues

Ryan Gosling is now on Twitter. As I reported a few weeks ago, the two are rumoured to be dating. Click here for a refresher. Twitter’s not the most slamdunk source for smut, but occasionally it can yield some intriguing clues. Full Story

Robin, Keanu, and fangirling for Rebecca

The Private Lives of Pippa Lee premiered at TIFF last night. I was assigned to the cover the carpet for etalk and when Rebecca Miller arrived, it was like Robert Pattinson for me. No one but Rebecca Miller could wear what she wore. I know you think it’s weird, I know you think it’s not something Jennifer Aniston would wear and therefore not acceptable. Full Story

SJP and Cynthia Nixon are back at work on the set of Sex & the City 2. Today it was Kim Cattrall’s turn. She looks great. I keep hearing Kim’s voice every night this week during the US Open. Love watching evening tennis. And she’s been narrating these intro pieces including player profiles and opening sequences. Full Story

We missed you Ellen Page

Lainey Posted by Lainey at September 3, 2009 09:28:45 September 3, 2009 09:28:45

She doesn’t sign on to every sh-tty script that’s thrown at her. And she’s not a famewhore. And her fans are f-cking crazy. So we don’t see her very often. Only when it’s time to promote a movie. The movie, as you know, is called Whip It. Directed by Drew Barrymore, it will be Ellen’s first feature since Juno. Full Story

Lainey Posted by Lainey at August 27, 2009 08:00:58 August 27, 2009 08:00:58

Degrassi Goes Hollywood, the show’s first movie, broke records at The N a couple of weeks ago in America as the most–watched, highest-rated telecast ever for the network. Canadian shows have been kicking ass lately with the major players. And both Degrassi and Flashpoint received Gemini Award nominations this week. Full Story
