I won’t lie - if this had broken in January, in the heat of award season, this story would get a smutty tingle and not its own dedicated post. The subjects of this report know this too. I guess that’s the point. Late last week, Debra Messing announced that she and husband Daniel Zelman had separated earlier in the year. Full Story

I mean on paper for him it’s been a great year: three movies, several more to come, major acclaim, a new meme every week, the actor onto which every thinking woman can project all her mate ideals. On the contrary, I think I have Ryan Gosling fatigue. Oh but we are hard to please. I want to go back to the time when I didn’t know that Ryan Gosling takes his girls to Disneyland. Full Story

Happy Birthday Brianna! I know it’s been a rough year and because of that, you’re not looking forward to the next one. I get that. So does Michael Fassbender. Look, he’s feeling sad for you too. But not for long. Indulge your mood for the next few days. But promise me, starting Sunday night, you’ll be ready for a new outlook. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Gwyneth Paltrow’s Vogue cover in 2008 was the magazine’s worst selling in many years. It was a headline people were very, very quick to celebrate. That’s how it is with Gwyneth though. We love to make big news of her shortcomings and totally ignore the good headlines.  Read Full Intro

Jessica Simpson has said she’s having a spring baby. Beyonce’s supposedly due like right now. This is why, though I’ve never given birth, I believe it when they say that every pregnancy is different. And that’s also why I don’t understand why some women still persist with the “well, when I was pregnant, this and this happened so that must mean that this and this happens to EVERYONE”. Full Story

For the 7 or 8 of you who care...I was obsessed with the supermodels of the late 80s and 90s. Yes, I know I sound like a grandma when I say that what we have now is nothing compared to Christy, Linda, Tatjana (my favourite), Cindy, Naomi, etc. George Michael’s girls indeed. But also Gianni Versace. Versace’s runways were the best. Full Story

Page Six reported the other day that Kristen Wiig and her new young lover Fab Moretti were all over each other again on a flight to LA from NYC last week. Two things excited me about this story: first that they’re still hooking up and second that she was “wearing massive f-ck-me Louboutins” at the time. Full Story

I considered calling it “Best & Worst” but I’m not sure “worst” is the right word. And besides, to see Connie Britton’s face when Kyle Chandler forgot to thank you - it was the kind of eyeroll reserved for a family member, the kind of eyeroll Tami Taylor gave Eric. A lot. Like, OF COURSE he’d forget me. Full Story

It’s the final week of Hugh Jackman’s hugely successful run on Broadway. Did you go? Only 4 performances left, not including today. And, as anyone who has seen it will tell you, soooooo worth it, which is why he’s been breaking house records and charming crowds and critics. Here’s Hugh with his family on Christmas Day in New York before that evening’s show. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Many thanks to the major players for their Christmas kindness - no eloping, no divorcing, no adopting, no getting caught cheating, no super scandal to interrupt the long holiday weekend giving the gossip business an extended break. Is Matthew McConaughey considered a Major Player anymore? Was he ever? Not being facetious. Just really curious about how you’d rank him. In some conversations, “Major Player” includes a Kardashian. I’d like to believe that that sh-t peaked in 2011.

It’ll be a light week of posting until everyone resumes a normal schedule right after the New Year. For those of you who keep asking about Blake and Ryan though, and there are a lot of you, yes, I do have exclusive details about their multi-destination Christmas. More on that later.

Wouldn’t it have been great to have been in Ireland, at the entrance to St Stephen’s Park in Dublin, to see Bono and Glen Hansard busking for charity on Christmas Eve?

Yours in gossip,

Lainey
