Dear Gossips,

Was it a happy ending? However you’d classify it, it certainly wasn’t a weak ending. Expectation can kill a series finale and holy sh-t, Breaking Bad was facing some Expectations. What I have always loved most about Breaking Bad however is that it never succumbed to the need to “explain” evil in a way that provides comfort for those who need to believe there’s a root cause for everything. Evil is its own root cause and no religion will ever make that better. Sometimes being bad just feels good – how’s that for a reason?

We have a lot of TV to talk about. There’s what happened to Walter White and Jesse Pinkman. And Homeland. And… Masters Of Sex! Also a fresh blind. And Paris Fashion Week in LifeStyle and Tina Fey opens a new season of Saturday Night Live, partly as Farrah Fawcett. Big week ahead. It’s premiere week. Have you caught up on Scandal yet?!?

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

Over in Scotland, they’re all over James McAvoy’s new film Filth. It opened at #1 over there, one of the biggest British film premieres of all time, and even bigger than X-Men: First Class. Aaaaand they still don’t know what to do with it here in North America. Are our moviegoers less sophisticated or are we less dirty? I WANT DIRTY. Full Story

Carey Mulligan attended the NY premiere of Inside Llewyn Davis this weekend. Her hair is dark now. Later on, she let it down to perform at The Town Hall for the Another Day, Another Time concert, celebrating folk music. Her husband Marcus Mumford was on stage too (he worked on the Llewyn Davis soundtrack) – though not with her so, supposedly, she sang with Elvis Costello (not pictured). Full Story

It was a hand-off!

Brad Pitt took his twins, Vivienne and Knox, to Legoland in England this weekend. I love his hair like this. It’s hot. So much hotter. And younger too. But that’s not the point… The point is that, at least in this case, there’s finally an answer to me obsessing with how the Brange makes their child outing decisions. Full Story

Jennifer Aniston hit up the spa the other day in a really good outfit – good hat, good shirt, good shoes. I’ll try to zoom that sh-t as much as possible so that you can fully eyeball the pregnancy region. If you recall, US Weekly is claiming she’s pregnant and won’t confirm until the 6th month. Full Story

Did you catch that in Tina Fey’s monologue on Saturday Night Live? She was telling the new cast members that dancing for the host is part of the job. Then she replayed all the times she had to jazz hand it during her 9 years as a regular player on the show. And she remembered how Will Ferrell had to tap dance for o the same…for Katie Holmes, because Katie Holmes can’t tap. Full Story

Tina and the new cast members

Lainey Posted by Lainey at September 30, 2013 14:43:43 September 30, 2013 14:43:43

Saturday Night Live kicked off a new season on Saturday with host Tina Fey and several new cast members. One woman…and all white. So after 39 seasons, you know, take comfort in the fact that not much has changed. Well, at least it didn’t suck. How could it suck with Tina around? And Jesse Pinkman? Everyone’s favourite sketch was Girls and Blerta (Kate McKinnon was so good in that). Full Story

Masters Of Sex pilot review

Duana Posted by Duana at September 30, 2013 14:17:53 September 30, 2013 14:17:53

Here’s what I know you want to know – is this show clinical and kind of boring, or sexy enough to be titillating viewing, or something in the middle? One of the things that happens is that dudes who say “How does Wesley Snipes from 30 Rock get to have women like Kate Beckinsale and Rachel McAdams?” will continue to say that. Full Story

Mila Kunis too

We were just talking about Katy Perry’s attraction to John Mayer’s “genius”. And now here’s Mila Kunis, arriving at LAX with Ashton Kutcher yesterday after hitting up Toronto’s Just For Laughs Festival where she performed a Family Guy reading with other members of the cast. Full Story
