Dear Gossips,

The thing about the people at these fancy Cannes parties is that I’m not sure they stop to appreciate the cocktail napkins. I’m serious. Someone with a tray comes ‘round offering a cube of delicious goat cheese topped by a piece of bacon over a light wafer and then hands you a square napkin to wipe your mouth.  Read Full Intro

Is there a kids’ table?

Queen Elizabeth hosted a reception for Foreign Monarchs at Windsor Castle today. As in you were only invited if you are royalty, literally. The Cambridges and Hot Harry were there. Please God kill Kate’s pink square toe satin shoes I hate them SO much.I like to imagine that the three of them stayed close through the event. Full Story

I don’t really know what this video is except horrifying.I have a motto—start exclusive, stay exclusive. This is my media/marketing approach. I’m a boutique person; I’d rather serve a smaller, more rarified clientele than be a big smashing hit with the masses. In marketing terms, it’s called courting the alpha consumer. Full Story

Hugh Grant participated in a rally for media reform yesterday organised by Hacked Off in London. Hugh as you know has been the most vociferous celebrity in the ongoing investigation into British tabloid practices. It’s like he’s replaced acting with crusading. Hugh Grant is the First Avenger...While his ex-girlfriend and bff, the mother of his godson, is parading around on the arm of that vile Shane Warne with the help of the tabloid media. Full Story

Two years ago he was a tweeting, blogging, pissing, insufferable douchebag. And he admits to it. Then he did what so few of them have the courage to do: John Mayer promised to go away and...he actually went away. John Mayer was sick of himself. John Mayer was sick of how he’d been affected by fame. John Mayer paid attention to and agreed with the critics who called him that loser from high school intoxicated by newfound popularity, thrashing around like a goddamn fool. Full Story

As I reported yesterday, Guillaume Canet was not in Cannes with Marion Cotillard yesterday for the premiere of De Rouille et d’os. Guillaume stayed back with Marcel in New York where he’s directing Blood Ties. How CUTE are these pictures of him playing with his boy? That child’s face is the exact perfect combination of his parents. Full Story

Last week at the Dictator premiere in London I asked Isla Fisher whether or not she’s attracted to General Aladeen. She was like, “God no, he’s vile. But I am very, very attracted to my husband”.I could be very, very attracted to her husband too if he’d stay out of costume now and again. Check him out here at Letterman last night as Sacha Baron Cohen. Full Story

I schedule my schedule around the Olympics. Full Story

First of all...Kelly Preston has a website? Sarah messaged me last night asking if I’d seen the video that John Travolta made for Kelly Preston. I hadn’t and made a point of watching it before passing out thinking it’d be great to fall asleep to the sight of him throwing down a few dance moves in a pair of chaps. Full Story
