Dear Gossips,

Errrrm, when did Betty Draper become Karla Homolka? I actually had to play that part back, twice, to make sure it was indeed what she said. Welcome back Mad Men. The recap will be posted later today.

Mad Men is why I didn’t watch the Academy of Country Music Awards. Which I feel sh-tty about especially since Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton got so much play but this is what YouTube is for. Some of the pictures are already on the LifeStyle page and we’ll add through the day.

Did you see Peter Dinklage on Saturday Night Live? He was the best part of an otherwise insulting show hosted by Melissa McCarthy. If you haven’t yet had a chance, you should also check out Dinklage’s appearance on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart from a couple of weeks ago. His raven joke was amazing. Oh and speaking of Game Of Thrones, how about when Gidget mocks Jon Snow for not knowing what a “warg” is? Is that, like, the Seven Kingdoms’ version of teen shaming?

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

Mad Men Season 6 Episode 1 recap Did you feel warmed and welcomed by your friends? Were you filled with the holiday spirit? Do you feel invigorated because 1968 is here and feeling fresh and new? Or are you only focused on the fact that Betty Francis said what she said and the world didn’t explode at 10:17? I feel like we should save that, because the episode wanted me to see that Don is Falling Apart, so let’s acknowledge that first. Full Story

Gwyneth Paltrow was at Williams-Sonoma on Friday to promote It’s All Good. She wore a white blazer over The Legs. Note the length of the blazer -- 80s, non? I like it. Then on Saturday it was time to party. Moses Martin is 8 today. They celebrated at the Paltrow-Martin Los Angeles estate with several celebrities and their children including Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale, Tobey Maguire and Jennifer Meyer, Joel Madden, Jon Favreau, Maria Shriver, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Apple and Moses’s favourite auntie, Cameron Diaz. Full Story

I’ve been having something of a Melissa McCarthy problem for the last few months. I loved her as Suki of Stars Hollow, and so was excited to see her elevated to prominence in pop culture by way of Bridesmaids, but ever since that movie, I’ve experienced the dawning horror of realizing that Melissa McCarthy is overrated. Full Story

Ben Kingsley’s the Mandarin is apparently the villain in the upcoming, highly anticipated Iron Man 3. And here’s Iron Man wearing a mandarin style jacket while promoting the film in Beijing this weekend at the Ancestral Imperial Temple. It’s apparently the first time a Hollywood movie has been promoted there. Full Story

Game Of Thrones Season 3 Episode 2 recap ….except of course that this episode was kind of slow.  Yes, characterized most by the fact that everyone is, or will be, on the move – but still basically a lot of laid pipe for what will be happening circa episode 4.   What was nice about it, of course, was that we got a little breathing room to spend some time with the characters, assumedly so that when things start going fever-pitch later in the season we’ll remember who was facing what particularly wrenching emotional dilemma. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Something really exciting happened yesterday that took us back to the glory days of matching denim and pinky stinky. Please. That’s all you needed to make it 2002 again (before the dance-off). We’ll get to that in a minute.  Read Full Intro
