Ryan Lochte attended the premiere of The Expendables 2 last night in Hollywood. But not before shopping at Ralph Lauren on Rodeo Drive. Hollywood is his playground now.  As you know, LA Lochte is doing 90210 and wants to be considering for Dancing and The Bachelor. According to the photo agency, this dude he’s posing with is someone called Chris Harrison. Full Story

Written by Lorella (Lainey: some of you have written to say that you don’t agree with the perceived pro-Kristen Stewart position Duana and I have taken on the cheating scandal and the subsequent cover. For analysis then on the Jodie Foster defence of her former co-star, I’ve asked my friend Lo to weigh in, as we have slightly differed on our perspectives of the situation although where Foster is concerned, I’m with Lo on this one. Full Story

That is a truly bizarre sentence to write. The last time Jake G had a movie in theaters was nearly eighteen months ago, last spring’s Source Code. Since then, he’s kept a relatively low profile as he recalibrates after his Movie Star dreams died a slow, inexorable death in 2010. For reasons I will never understand, you people wouldn’t let him be a Movie Star (I say “you people” because I fully supported him as a blockbuster star and will always slightly resent everyone else for pushing Jake G aside in favor of Channing Tatum), so he has gone back to his roots in character-driven indies. Full Story

Colour Me Good Ryan Gosling comes with the following back cover instruction: "Use your felt tips to colour in Ryan Gosling driving, eating, kissing, standing, walking and all manner of handsome activities!"  Hilarious, right? Ish. Full Story

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

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

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
