Nancy! Happy Birthday from Natasha! What happened to you at SMUT? Will I see you in 2014? Your daughter told me a story about a certain scene in Scandal that you like to watch (Natasha, I’m sorry, but that sh-t is too good not to share) and, well, I just wrote about an incident that’s sort of similar in my book that I want you to make particular note of if you read it. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

In 14 cities across North America today, business leaders and celebrities will be spending the night outside. They’re doing it in support of street youth for Covenant House. The event is called the Covenant House Sleepout. I did it last year. I slept on sloped concrete, on cardboard, in a sleeping bag, and I could hear the mice running along the alley.

Earlier on in the evening, we spoke to former homeless kids who “coached” us on how to make it through the night. Newspaper is really useful. You layer it on top of you and it acts like insulation. Also, try not to get robbed or raped. Because that’s what happens when your home is at the corner of Main and Front.

As hard as it was, we actually had it easy. We were grouped together and we all knew it would be over tomorrow. But that doesn’t mean it didn’t suck. It sucked for a long, cold, awful night. How do they do it? How do they stand it? Why should they have to?

At Covenant House, our kids are running from abuse and neglect and fear. Nobody chooses to sleep on cardboard and risk robbery and rape. It’s the ultimate in sh-t vs diarrhoea. Imagine what could be so bad, so intolerable, that you’d rather make a bed out of cardboard and be roommates with rats than be where you came from.

At Covenant House, we’re trying to help them stop running. First by clothing and feeding them in the crisis shelter. Then by providing resources to counselling and treatment. After that we work with them on employment skills. And we stay with them as they slowly build structured, sustainable healthy lifestyles. It doesn’t happen overnight. But in one night, on a Sleepout, you can get a good start, especially when a community rallies around you.

Please click here for more about the Covenant House Sleepout in Vancouver... and in Toronto. My friend and colleague Ben Mulroney is sleeping out tonight. Jeanne Beker too. And Arlene Dickinson from Dragon’s Den.

Please click here for information on other Covenant House locations closer to you.

Thank you for taking the time to read this.

Yours in gossip,

Lainey’s scrambling to get organized at Pearson at the moment en route to NYC having forgotten her passport.  She’s the busiest person I know but also probably the most disorganized.  Anyway…here’s my first go at Tingles in a while. 

Sasha’s recommending all kinds of dresses in Lifestyle

Would Elvis still be making as much as he does if he were alive and looked like this? (Dlisted)

She’s never made it back on my list after that hideous jogging pant “incident” (Just Jared)

Angie missed the (space) boat (Cele|bitchy)

Winona in Vegas

Sandra Bullock + Las Vegas. Sure. Julia Roberts + Las Vegas. Yeah. Oceans Eleven. Cameron Diaz + Las Vegas. Of course. One actress that doesn’t go with Las Vegas… Winona Ryder. Right? She was at the premiere of Homefront last night with Jason Statham, James Franco, and Kate Bosworth, looking the least comfortable of all of them. Full Story

Justin Bieber and his Frankenstein

I finally had the chance to read The Hollywood Reporter article on Justin Bieber this morning. I also finally had to poo this morning, my first since Sunday. So I did them both together. It’s a five page article so the timing was perfect. I highly recommend. Not because Bieber has anything insightful to share though. Full Story

Are You Duff Enough?

Haylie Duff. Who?! I got an email yesterday from DailyCandy about Haylie Duff’s Apple Pie Crescent Rolls. The sister of Hilary is in the news (I was going to say back in the news, but that would imply she was in the spotlight to begin with) because she’s launching her own lifestyle brand, geared specifically towards food. Full Story

Jennifer Lawrence taking sh-ts and Rob Ford

Wenn, FameFlynet

If this is an act… She totally deserves that Oscar. It’s 20 minutes long, and I know you might not have the time to watch 20 minutes of Jennifer Lawrence, but if you do, you won’t come out the other side feeling sh-tty. That’s not to say she’s, like, Ron Burgundy or anything. Full Story

As you know, Harry Styles is my favourite Direction. Every time I see him, I squeak and lower my eyes. Today however I’m mad at him. Because last night he went out for dinner… With someone related to Kanye West’s fiancée. It’s a sister. Don’t ask me which one, I don’t know their names. Full Story
