I’m a celebrity realist, which means that for me, it’s not so much about pretending away a celebrity’s bad habit, but asking whether or not whatever peccadillo they’ve got is a deal breaker, or something that I’m going to be able to ignore for the sake of my crush. For instance, Tom Hiddleston’s Twitter Full Story

An off-white problem from head to toe

This is just so spectacularly bad I had to put it on the main page instead of LifeStyle... Check out Jessica Biel today in London promoting Total Recall in an off-white head to toe situation that, well, do you think it’s doing anything for her? An idea on a runway or in a magazine on a fashion model bent strategically in place to find the only flattering angles is one thing. Full Story

Last week Lainey and I were talking about our anxiety dreams: mine always revolve around math class. And this is because I’m painfully, embarrassingly bad at math. It’s awful. When out for dinner with friends, they know to calculate my share and tip because it takes me too long. I’m from the Barbie “math class is tough!” generation. Full Story

Thanks For Coming To Class!

Celebrity Gossip as a proper academic discipline? Why not? When done right, gossip is a study of human behaviour. In way many ways, there’s more value in it than the analysis of hockey statistics, and the person who does that for a living doesn’t have to deal with the smirk that accompanies the revelation of that particular pastime or profession. Full Story

August 16, 2012 - Smutty Shout-Outs

Lainey Posted by Lainey at August 16, 2012 13:22:39 August 16, 2012 13:22:39

Taralynne! Happy 30th Birthday! I hear you, I’m sorry about James Franco and all his poetry. You were right to break up with him. And you’re right - what’s a birthday without a little Bridget? I couldn’t find an embeddable clip for the tarts & vicars party scene but how about when she has to introduce Mr Tits Pervert? Even after oh probably close to 20 viewings, I still laugh when she “oy!”s the crowd. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

It’s Tabloid Wednesday! At the writing of this open, I’d not seen all the covers for the new weeklies. But Jennifer Aniston has to be on at least three. After all, in announcing the engagement on Sunday, she gave them enough time.

Today is tricky as I’m travelling and my flight leaves early which means the entire column was pre-written between 2am - 7am PT. Will address any urgent stories when I land in Toronto late afternoon.

I was shouted at a lot yesterday by some tall people over my disparaging of the kitten heel. We will continue this fight today. Or, rather, because I am a height-challenged coward, Duana is fighting my battles for me.

Am still in Olympic withdrawal. Never thought I would miss weightlifting this much.

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

Lainey’s touching down in Toronto in about a half hour.  If anything big breaks, expect more when she lands.  Otherwise, we sign off for the day with what our friends are saying…

(Lainey: I was shouted at yesterday by tall people in response to this article about Nicole Kidman’s f-cking kitten heels -- I am not qualified to hate them because I am short. Duana is 5 ft 9. She’s previously written about height in a popular article from last year that you can access here Full Story

Colin Farrell took his mother to the Irish premiere of Total Recall last night in Dublin. No, you can’t say Total Recall sh-t the bed. But it’s also fair to say that they would have wanted it to do better. A lot better. Nikki Finke over at Deadline Full Story

Ryan Lochte arrived in LA last night presumably to start work on his guest role on 90210 and also to take meetings for a variety of Dancing Bachelor reality shows he’s trying to be a part of. Hollywood Lochte!  A proper LA boy now! How long before that pose-harding famewhore AnnaLynne McCord attaches herself to him? Let me put my hand in your face but not in a rude way to interrupt you when you say - she wouldn’t go for Ryan! She has a boyfriend now! Dominic Purcell. Full Story
