I want you all to know that I was wrong.   I wanted to cover all this celebrity election-related business today. I was fired up - scanning the agencies and tweets for more news, for a stuffed-full article of every celeb I could find, doing their own thing in all different ways.  I tried to include the below pictures in that article -- but I was WRONG. Full Story

Almost everything I’ve read on Twitter or Facebook today begins with the line “To My American Friends…” and is followed by some instruction on voting smart, or voting for the right guy, or voting at all. We have some envy here, is what you need to know.  Canadian elections are…not like yours. Full Story

Kristen Stewart hit up The Tonight Show last night looking really good in Peter Pilotto right off the runway. Click here to see the entire collection. Good choice of black pumps to go with it and the loose ponytail works well too. As for the leg, since I didn’t watch, tell me, did she manage to keep it still? Or was it swinging all around and up and down? While Stewart was sent to the generously easy Leno, Robert Pattinson was over at Jimmy Kimmel. Full Story

One Direction’s Harry Styles is 18. So, famous or not, of course sex is a big deal -- thinking about it, doing it, thinking about the next time he’ll get to do it. But I feel like the way they’re pre-packaging young stars these days, they’re supposed to be androgynous. Because, I dunno, our society is afraid of sex? Which might explain why it was almost jarring to read Harry’s comments about sex and his first time: “The first time I had sex, I was scared I got the girl pregnant. Full Story

Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard announced yesterday that they’re expecting a baby. I’m staying at Duana’s right now in Toronto and when I told her this on Monday morning she got all giggly and happy and immediately started researching due dates. It’s a Veronica Mars thing. As you know, Du and I disagree on K Bell -- she adores her and I find her insufferable. Full Story

Last Friday No Doubt posted the music video for their new single, “Looking Hot”. In the video Gwen Stefani and the other members of the band dress up like cowboys and Indians and frolic amidst teepees and an Old West jail. Stefani hangs out with a wolf, makes smoke signals, and dresses in a variety of native-stripper themed outfits. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

I saw Flight this weekend. The film’s 77% and 76% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and Metacritic respectively surprises me. I didn’t think it was all that great. And the soundtrack was so...obvious, wasn’t it? But that’s not really the point.  Read Full Intro

Nicole Kidman showed up at Derby Day in Melbourne in a My Fair Lady dress by L’Wren Scott that was inspired by Audrey Hepburn. Theory: it’s impossible to look youthful in race spectator clothing, isn’t it? It’s not exactly the freshest aesthetic. Putting granny in granny gear was an ill-advised move. Full Story
