Photographer Terry Richardson was with Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux out in New York. They agreed to let him shoot. He produced a very intimate photo of the new couple. I mean, this is a NEW couple. They juuuuust happened. A brand new couple with one very, very famous half. And already...she’s allowing portraits? As you know from her days with Brad Pitt, Jen is really good at looking like she’s in love, even when things behind the scenes aren’t so bright. Full Story

Well, it’s all over the mainstream North American media. George Clooney is a free agent. Did the Italian Queen miscalculate? Really? Her? She’s played it so well so far... Or is it a case of having extracted from him the most she could possibly extract? Some money, clothes, connections, and above all things. Full Story

Big headlines this week about Pippa Middleton and her singleness. They said her (ex) boyfriend Alex Loudon isn’t happening anymore. And why not? After the Wedding, she became an Industry in her own right. Pippa is an Economy now. Single Pippa and all the intrigue is much more lucrative than a Pippa who may or not have been engaged to a nice, well to do English boy with no ties to the Queen. Full Story

They were in Europe together. Then it was over to LA for the MTV Movie Awards and a trip to Disneyland afterwards. And it’s still not enough. This weekend Blake Lively and Leonardo DiCaprio, my current favourite Good for Gossip couple, were in New York. She stayed with him, it was definitely a multiple sleepover situation. Full Story

As noted earlier, there was a lot of Royal-ness to cover this weekend. Prince William and Catherine were present, along with all the other Royals, at Trooping the Colour in celebration of the Queen’s birthday. Will rode during the procession directly behind his gran. He’s on the grey horse, see? While Will participated in the official march, Kate shared a coach with her mother-in-law, Hot Harry, and Prince Andrew. Full Story

George and the Italian Queen: 2 years now

She’s lasted a lot longer than a lot of people predicted. Oh you underestimated the Italian Queen. From the beginning she made it clear she was not like the others. From the beginning she declared herself to be different. And with very few missteps. Maybe just that time on Twitter when she hilariously compared Jennifer Aniston to Iggy Pop – click here Full Story

Blake is more naked

Lainey Posted by Lainey at June 2, 2011 07:48:40 June 2, 2011 07:48:40

Blake Lively’s publicist denied that the first batch of nude leaks were shots of her client. And there was a rather limp-wristed threat to sue too. Whoever released the pictures apparently wasn’t finished. Yesterday more images were distributed online, this time with captions, like a f-ck you message to Blake’s rep, challenging the denial, and providing even more “proof” that the tawdry shots are indeed of her – her tits, her ass, her body. Full Story
