Keira Knightley’s brother was married in Glasgow this weekend. Keira was a bridesmaid. Even a movie star can look ordinary in a bridesmaid dress, non? My ma picked out the dresses that my bridesmaids wore. That should tell you the whole story. If I could do it again, I’d say wear your favourite black cocktail. Full Story

I was at the airport in Vancouver getting ready for my flight to London on Friday when the news crossed my blackberry that Lindsay LOHAN was sentenced to 120 days in jail. Once upon a time that would have been, like, breaking and urgent. Now it’s just a *kanye shrug*. But big f-cking ups to Judge Stephanie Sautner for giving it to her in the ass. Full Story
Happy Birthday Vanessa in Toronto from your sister Ursula who lives far, far away south of the border! Good luck to Twilight’s Charlie Bewley who is running the BMO Vancouver Marathon on Sunday May 1st.

It’s a long weekend in Canada and I’m heading to London tonight for the next week to cover the Royal Wedding for CTV. Will be blogging from there starting Monday. So it’ll be a lighter one today, just a few quick hits.
Have a great weekend!
Yours in gossip,

The Bang Bang Club screened at the Tribeca Film Festival today. Malin Ackerman, Ryan Phillippe, and Taylor Kitsch were all present. I don’t know what’s happening with Taylor’s hair but it’s hurting me, like actual physical pain. Obviously not his best showing. Having said that, yay for him hanging out with DeNiro on red carpets!
