Or is this is a publicity stunt? Curious item in Page Six today - apparently Shenae Grimes, being groomed to take over as the new Shannen Doherty, is quickly following in her mentor’s footsteps. Full Story

Many of you have emailed today about Joshua Jackson. He was originally confirmed to walk the carpet last night at TIFF for the One Week gala and did not show. UK tabloids today are reporting that he visited Katie Holmes this week with a bouquet of flowers after seeing photos of her looking wan and sad. Full Story

Last week I posted this article about Joshua Jackson and Katie Holmes both in New York working at the  same time on separate projects. For three years, KatE has been isolated from her past, alienated from the reality that defined before that fateful motorcycle ride with the Gay Midget Dwarf. Full Story

It’s hard to leave them alone when they’re just so damn cute…and super super PDA too! As I was the first to report earlier this week, Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams are back together and so so SO happy in Toronto. They’ve been sighted at local hangouts in town every night and day, hands linked, always smiling, beaming at each other – the flush of first love all over again. Full Story

For the first time in several years, former lovers Katie Holmes and Joshua Jackson, Joey and Pacey, are in the same city at the same time. It means nothing. Though she may be tempted, in the deep reaches of her soul that have yet to be completely eradicated by Xenu, to see her old friend, Katie’s heart is not unlike Kay’s – frozen by splinters from the troll mirror in Hans Christian Andersen’s Snow Queen, his personality cruelly transformed and entranced by the Snow Queen’s kiss, his memory paralysed, his loves forgotten, his family left behind. Full Story

As I reported exclusively yesterday - Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling are back together. Monday night it was dinner in Toronto. Tuesday they ran errands in Yorkville, seen at the Manulife Centre, strolling hand in hand on Avenue Road, and at one point smiling broadly as they ducked into a store. Full Story

Early reviews for Pineapple Express have been generally positive…if raunch and dirty is your thing. Raunch and dirty is totally my thing. Naturally I have to see Pineapple Express, although it sucks you can’t drink in the theatre. My buzz always wears off half way through, you know? See? Sucks that I can’t hold my weed. Full Story

I ate in front of the tv the other night and Superbad was on Movie Central. Superbad is like Airplane…gets funnier every time you watch. Check out McLovin last night on the Pineapple carpet. Instant giggles. As you know, Seth Rogen co-wrote Superbad, he also co-wrote Pineapple Express, and takes a producer credit on the film. Full Story

Can you feel the rain? The rain on the rowboat? The crazy McGoslings are watching The Notebook. Which they do every day. Only the difference between today and every other day is hope. There is hope. Hope is alive! Ryan Gosling DJ’d at the Green Door in Hollywood on Tuesday night. Slipping out the back door with him as he left was none other than Rachel McAdams. Full Story

It’s Comic-Con. An annual pilgrimage of supergeek superfans. Their excuse to pull out the Chewbacca and Storm Trooper costumes and celebrate the supernatural. Don’t laugh. Comic-Con is huge. Comic-Con is powerful. Comic-Con can make or break a movie. Iron Man owes much of its success to the reaction it received at Comic-Con. Full Story
