An email arrived in my inbox yesterday titled: Calgary Comic Expo Hayden Panettiere Release. And the details: Hayden Panettiere, award winning actor and vocalist, has been added to the Calgary Expo's growing roster of media and creator guests for the convention which runs April 27-April 29, 2012.This reminded me of when I was in Toronto in August staying at a hotel downtown. Full Story

Oh hey Crusty! How’s this? A smile during an interview? Some good humour on The Today Show? But you hate the dog and pony show! As you know, I’m kinda tired of Daniel Craig’s whinging about the media and publicity and spotlight and attention paid to his personal life. I’ve already written about it at length here Full Story

Engagement #3

Lainey Posted by Lainey at December 16, 2011 18:28:39 December 16, 2011 18:28:39

Does the first one count as an engagement? Or did they just go straight to wedding and then annulment? Let’s call it a second engagement then. Britney Spears is engaged to marry Jason Trawick who proposed in Vegas on his 40th birthday. Britney just turned 30 earlier this month. Jason used to be her agent. Full Story

For my cousin Cat and all of you, and thank you for your emails, who love the Rafa posts and photos...Check out Rafael Nadal with his longtime gf “Xisca” at the Juntos Por La Integracion charity gala organised by his foundation in Barcelona last night. I love her. She is SO cute. Sometimes I worry though that they’re too young to have been together for so long. Full Story

Christian Bale has been in China promoting The Flowers Of War. I’ve written about the film here and here, the “first time a domestically-funded Chinese movie has placed a Hollywood actor in a leading role” with the transparent intent for the Chinese film industry to go aggressively global, much like many of its other industries. Full Story

I keep reading these little items, cleverly tucked into a magazine or a blog post here and there, about how comfortable Blake Lively is in the kitchen. About how she cooks and bakes, this hot leggy blonde cheerleader surfer girl, naked under an apron, who can sauce and soufflé as well as she can spread and strut. Full Story

Dear Sabra, Thank you for your lovely, honest letter. And Happy Birthday! How much do I love you for namechecking Dorian Gray? How much do I admire you for the courage you’ve demonstrated in facing the people who’ve never been kind to you, not your whole life? It sounds like you’ve had a lonely few years. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Well, there was no glaring “The Tourist” moment when the Golden Globe nominations were announced this morning. But that doesn’t mean the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, like I said yesterday, didn’t prioritise the Brange. I wonder if that’s tops the agenda of their selection committee: how can we guarantee Brange’s attendance? Sort the categories accordingly.  Read Full Intro

Happened way too often this year: single women emerging after serious relationships only to rebound into the arms of gross dudes. Like, over and over and over again.  Elizabeth Hurley & that vile Shane Warne - why are his lips always gooey? I admire those of you who tend to look for the best in every person/story/situation. Full Story

Girl sh-t is the best sh-t, remember? Oh yeah! Madonna also directed a movie this year! And, yes, the Hollywood Foreign Press, as they did with Angelina Jolie, found a way to include Madonna on their Golden Globe Guest List by giving W.E. two music nominations which, hilariously, is kinda like reminding Justin Timberlake he’s a musician and not an actor. Full Story
