Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 9, 2012 15:06:37 May 9, 2012 15:06:37

Prince William and Catherine were out last night in London. Will was invited to speak at a meeting of The Thirty Club. Apparently The Thirty Club is super elite and top secret. No one knows what goes on in there but its members are among the most powerful media and marketing players in England.  Will’s been invited several times but finally accepted this year on the occasion of his grandmother’s Diamond Jubilee and his upcoming 30th birthday. Full Story

ExclusiveRyan Reynolds took Blake Lively to Nanaimo on Vancouver Island this week. His brother lives and works there. They stayed with him during their visit and played basketball on his block on Monday night. It’s cute, right? Ryan and Blake, all Hollywood and sh-t, running up and down the street of an unassuming neighbourhood, giggling and chasing each other. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Dress porn takes priority. So we’re covering the Met Gala first, then everything else after Smutty Tingles. It will be a heavy day on the blog. Very heavy. So if you’re visiting late in the day, please scroll down and click VIEW OLDER to get caught up. This opening and a many of the early posts were written through the night so if there are new photos that are worth seeing, I’ll get those up later. We’ll try to load the pictures and the articles to the site as quickly as possible but given that there is commentary that accompanies each set, I may be slower than some of my peers. Will try to be worth the wait.

As always, please do send your thoughts. Every message is read, eagerly. And I look forward to the unspoken arguments, raging through the ether, from your inbox to mine.


Yours in gossip,


PS. The Desert Dogs took out the Predators! And I love being wrong if it means the Country Bitch isn’t going to the Stanley Cup.

Where was Chanel last night at the Met Gala? Why was Karl so underrepresented? E! News is reporting that Chanel No 5 has signed Brad Pitt as the face of the fragrance. Apparently the deal is worth 7 figures and he’ll shoot the ad in London some time this month. Full Story

Her name is Joan Smalls. She is a model. She accompanied Balmain designer Olivier Rousteing to the Met Gala. I’ve received several messages today about this, specifically re: Zoe Saldana, and why no one is talking about her from last night.No one is talking about Zoe Saldana because SHE WASN’T THERE. Full Story

Smash Season 1 Episode 14 recapI know it's going to make you fall off your chair but "Previews" was the episode I liked best in awhile. There was a plot that moved from A to B to C, and that's more than we've had to hang onto in a long while. Also, we saw actual production numbers in the show, and for the most part, they're pretty flawless. Full Story

Hot Harry was in Washington yesterday to receive an award in recognition of his work with wounded servicemen. He was surrounded by military men. He seemed very comfortable. And he looked perfect in his tux. And he may or may not be bootycalling Chelsy Davy. UK gossips say the two are sneaking around again but not “officially” back together. Full Story

Girls Season 1 Episode 4 recapThe naming of Jessa's young charges on this show is a triumph. I'm not being tongue in cheek at all. Lola and Beatrix. The names fit perfectly. Demographically, historically, the names are even well spaced, as they would have been popular at the exact times each girl was born. Full Story
