Mimi was in Macau (likely paid by some gambling billionaire to sing 3 songs for upwards of half a million) and just posted this on Instagram. You walk sideways to get onto a private plane, didn’t you know? And just off camera, two bodyguards have their arms outstretched just in case she topples over. Full Story

So I watched the season premiere of Gossip Girl the other night. It’s only 10 episodes. I’ve decided to finish it off. Blake Lively’s Serena VDW doesn’t appear until midway through the hour wearing a yellow and white long dress cut low and, frankly, I could focus on nothing but her cleavage. Full Story
Lindsay and Dina Lohan scrapped last night. They were at a club at 4am. On their way home to Long Island they started slapping each other. Lindsay has a cut on her leg and her ma broke her bracelet. The cops were called on a domestic. No one was arrested. I would like to believe that Dina was finally giving her daughter some structure -- at dawn, after a night of partying. Full Story
God, it’s been 10 years. Where did that go? I wonder though, in this environment, if 8 Mile would even get made now. 8 Mile took everyone by surprise. Come on, admit it. 8 Mile was a lot better than you thought it would be. 8 Mile is GREAT. 8 Mile is still watchable, over and over and over again. Full Story
Kristen Stewart’s warming up for the last leg of her Twilight tour – and this is a brilliant way to do it. After botching her initial response to the cheating debacle, she’s executed a series of stronger, savvier plays (and she needs to if she wants to not be enveloped by her personal life, which was a real danger just a month ago).

Don’t say I didn’t warn you - as noted on Monday, it’s been a busy week of public appearances for Catherine of William.

Vanessa! Happy 30th Birthday with love from your sister Tania who misses you so much as you’re in Sweden and there’ve been no pizza and cupcakes in pyjamas. Here’s your gift: Alexander Skarsgard in Rome last week. Oh and I was asked to include some of my favourite figure skating photos from the 80s and 90s so of course Gordeeva and Grinkov and, well, Oksana Grishuk because, remember?, that bitch brought the f-cking drama.

Have you seen Jennifer Aniston’s engagement ring yet? Welcome back to those of you returning from Canadian Thanksgiving long weekend. It was a full day yesterday. Please scroll down to get caught up. More on Aniston’s ring reveal later.
John Lennon would have been 72 today. Last night I was over at Vulture reading some of his bitchy correspondence. The letters are part of a new book that will be released this week featuring a collection of his personal writing to friends, colleagues, newspaper critics, fangirls, and haters. Can you imagine what he would have done with a comment section on the internet?
Yours in gossip,
Steel Magnolias was on this weekend. I decided to watch it before watching the new Lifetime version with Queen Latifah. It’s been years, a long, long time. Duana told me recently that Steel Magnolias still holds up. Of course she was right. It might even be better. It’s certainly funnier. Full Story

Well let’s try this again… I have a friend who recently powered through all five seasons of Friday Night Lights. She couldn’t sleep, she couldn’t focus, she could think of nothing else. Now she knows. I receive at least half a dozen emails from people every week who are powering through all five seasons of Friday Night Lights. Full Story
