In the wake of the success of The Avengers, Marvel is, of course, looking for ways to keep expanding their brand. Over the last few years, they’ve pursued traditional cross-platform partners with comic book tie-ins and an animated series (The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes), but now they’re eyeing the big prize: primetime television. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

I am too dumb to understand how two people can dive together and make it look totally the same. It’s like mystery math. How? Especially when they’re different heights and bounce up and down seemingly to different beats? What an extraordinary achievement.  Read Full Intro

Mimi’s lambily received a surprise yesterday: she posted a photo of herself to announce the new single, Triumphant (Get ‘Em), dropping on Thursday. Thursday is Mimi Day. Of course it’s golden luxe. Of course you can’t see one of her arms because it’s just too slender. Full Story

But... I can’t look away. It’s Ed Westwick, my Shame F-ck, today in New York heading to his trailer on the set of Gossip Girl. You don’t have to tell me. I KNOW.

SPOILER. William, his Catherine, and Hot Harry watched Zara Phillips and Team GB win the silver medal today in equestrian! Zara did not medal herself but of all people, with her family origins, she’d be the first to say the individual is not important. As for Will and Kate... There’s some husband/wife flirting going on here, non? SO cute. Full Story
