Michael Buble is enjoying some down time at home in Vancouver while working on a new album due in October. Early buzz has been positive… Earlier this summer Buble released a special edition cd/dvd Michael Buble Meets Madison Square Garden. It’s selling very, very well. I must be the only bitch who doesn’t quiver at his cheese. Full Story

At The Time Traveller’s Wife premiere in New York last night – Pitt is a producer on the film and showed up dressed impeccably, as usual, in a white suit to match his leading lady Rachel McAdams. Rachel was at one time on Jacek’s Freebie Five. Can’t remind why he removed her. Full Story

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

Jennifer Aniston, also known as 40 and Fabulous!, has been battling Snapface Renee Zellweger, 40 too, for the affections of Bradley Cooper. Renee seems to have surged ahead of late. She and Coop (with whom she co-starred on Case 39) and a couple of friends (?) are currently in Barcelona, having travelled there together out of New York. 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

Good Morning!

Isn’t it? Every day should start like this. Ryan Gosling in a sleeveless shirt on a bike and hot.as.f-ck. He was at the Silverlake Conservatory of Music yesterday with some friends and then sped away. Ryan of course has his own band Dead Man’s Bones. I’ve posted their video before I think…but just in case you missed, it’s worth another look. Full Story

Mike’s still around

Lainey Posted by Lainey at August 5, 2009 11:07:20 August 5, 2009 11:07:20

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

No Tongue or Thumb for Seth

LOVE him. Yesterday he trashed AssTalking Heigl. Last night he was on Kimmel and told the funniest story about how he was rejected by Megan Fox. It was his first time on the show back in 2007. Same goes for Megan. And she was nervous so she came into the dressing room to ask him to stay on the couch and he said yes but when he went to greet her with a kiss… Well… You watch for yourself. Full Story

Ryan singled out

Thanks to all of you who sent this in – the New York Times posted an article yesterday about the house in the movie The Proposal starring Sandra Bullock. The family that owns the house was profiled because, for 3 weeks, the cast and crew took over their property. Very interesting read, definitely some insight into moviemaking. Full Story
