Dear Gossips,

A change in format today. I have press all day for The Social, our upcoming afternoon talk show premiering on Monday on CTV in Canada. We start at 6am ET with interviews every half hour or so. Normally I try to structure my work schedule to accommodate for blogging but this time it was impossible.  Read Full Intro

Lena Dunham is on the cover of Marie Claire UK. I have zero expertise in magazine covers, like I don’t know what makes one sell or not, but this doesn’t appeal to me at all. It’s awkward, right? Still, I think it’s cool that she’s on the cover, and the angle they’re taking is, if not exactly new (AT ALL) , still nice to hear from her. Full Story

Look at this picture that Aubrey Plaza tweeted yesterday. It’s of she and Rashida Jones and Tatiana Maslany, obviously going to or coming from the Parks & Rec set. Don’t they look like they’re having fun? Maslany is doing a guest stint as Tom Haverford’s love interest. Full Story

I’m not sure about the whole ‘working out with a friend’ thing. I like the idea a lot in theory, but I’m not sure it works in practice. Sasha and I worked out together for the longest time. It was super fun but we were always trying to distract the trainer with stories and questions so we didn’t have to hold our planks quite as long. Full Story

You guys, Cordelia once ran into a sketchball on the beach.  And is now exploiting it for ratings. (Too Fab)

For previous installments of Sarah’s Career Prospectus series, please click here. I just saw The Spectacular Now yesterday and loved it. Miles Teller reminds me of a young John Cusack in the best of ways. Which got me thinking. What happened with that career? Just bad choices? I've heard from a reliable source that he's a total douche and while I don't want to believe it, I wouldn't be surprised. Full Story

I couldn’t sleep last night, so I read, but one of the things that made it a little easier was that I discovered a book I forgot I bought on the Kindle. This is obviously an occupational hazard of the Kindle phenomenon and I play right into it. I am basically very responsible with money but I buy books as though they’re free, and as though it doesn’t add up when you get two a day. Full Story

At the end of my career prospectus on Joshua Jackson, I said the next step for him would be to get a gig with a cable network, and now THR is reporting that he’s signed onto Showtime’s pilot The Affair, from the team behind the much-admired In Treatment. Full Story

I found this phrasing pretty interesting, didn’t you?  I mean, it’s not the boilerplate divorce statement: “best for us to part company, we still care, please respect our privacy at this time”. They say they’re taking time while they ‘evaluate and work on their marriage’. Full Story

Jessica Simpson presented her newborn son Ace Knute on the cover of the new US Weekly yesterday. Now Page Six is reporting that she was only paid $100,000 for it. Look, $100,000 is a lot of money for us. Full Story
