You couldn’t miss Nicole Richie on the beach in Santa Monica yesterday with her husband and kids. How are the ratings for Fashion Star anyway? Last I heard it was hovering around 4 million which isn’t horrible but is far from a runaway hit.God her kids are SO cute, right? I can’t stand it how cute her kids are. Full Story

What to make of this? The Daily Mail, which is full of sh-t daily, reported yesterday that Carey Mulligan’s hen night happened two weeks ago. Carey is engaged to Marcus Mumford. And, obviously, a hen night usually precedes an actual wedding. Full Story

It was Kristen Stewart’s birthday yesterday. She’s now 22 which... I’m pretty sure is not a milestone number or anything, at least not in these parts, but whatever. A big ass embarrassing deal was made of it, and it was out of her control.  In honour of Kristen’s Special Day, her Snow White And The Huntsman cast-mates were made to record personalised birthday messages for her. Full Story

Smash Season 1 Episode 10 recapSo the thing is that my PVR brings in the last 90 seconds of Dancing With The Stars.  And I can't criticize that show anymore because it's so much better and more professional than, you know, the people on the show about professional singers and actors. But this week's episode of Smash isn't even really about the ins and outs of being a professional, except inasmuch as you decide how much you like getting yelled at during the course of your job. Full Story

Did you watch Scandal?

Lainey Posted by Lainey at April 10, 2012 15:03:27 April 10, 2012 15:03:27

Shonda Rimes created Grey’s Anatomy, Private Practice, and wrote Britney Spears’s Crossroads (!). Her new show, Scandal, premiered on ABC last Thursday. Did you watch? I saw the pilot episode at the TCAs in January and enjoyed it. But the version I saw was before it was given the network treatment. What happened on Thursday was. Full Story

After a break: Paula Patton

Remember Paula Patton in yellow at the Golden Globes? Click here if you can’t, although this would surprise me because she earned the Sit DOWN award of the evening. Fortunately, after that, Paula went away, kept a low profile, and was not seated front row at any other award shows. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

“Try to smile with your mouth closed.”

Really. It’s the small details. When a man’s family consists of daughter-wives, well, that’s why they all look like daughter-wives. And isn’t that exactly the girl who would be bent over in the bowels of a boat by Theon Greyjoy?

Too mean? Please. You know what happens to the naive in Game Of Thrones, right? I feel like that’s the expectation they put on their viewers too: kindness will not (often) be rewarded.

It was a busy weekend in gossip, and I’ve some catching up to do from taking Friday off. A very full column is ahead. Please check back often. Blogging from Seattle today as we’ve been here all weekend in advance of the Radiohead show at Key Arena tonight. Clam chowder is the best breakfast ever.

Yours in gossip,


Tom Cruise is my Rainier

Tom Cruise is really, really good at going super stealth undercover. Not unlike Johnny Depp. And the Brange. When he doesn’t want to be found, he will not be found. I wonder why his wife takes a different approach. There are several possible answers, of course, but I haven’t decided which one I like best. Full Story
