Just in case you forgot, Sasha used to be Tara Reid’s personal assistant. She doesn’t talk about it like it was a career highlight. But one of the highlights of my life is hearing her talk about all the bullsh-t that she had to deal with when she was managing Tara Reid’s life.

I have a ticket tonight to Guillermo del Toro’s The Shape Of Water which just won the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival this weekend and if I can be released from the red carpet I’m covering before 930pm, I’ll be able to see how it holds up against my favourite film, not only of TIFF, but of the year so far – Call Me By Your Name. Full Story
