Dear Gossips,

This is probably the last time you’ll read the open before the Royal Wedding tomorrow so I just want to get in a few reminders off the top. I am part of CTV’s Royal Wedding coverage – 7 hours live, from 7 locations (the most of any outlet in Canada) along the procession route, including two at Westminster Abbey, two at Buckingham Palace, and cameras at Trafalgar Square, Hyde Park, and the Duke of York steps, right on the Mall, which is where I’ll be, and my spot is uncovered so, please, please, please, wedding gods, please don’t rain.  Read Full Intro

We'll be posting photos in real time tomorrow morning London time during the Royal Wedding! As soon as they're available on the wires, you'll see them here! No sleep - it's the Wedding of the Century! Posh, Becks, Guy Ritchie, royals, royals, royals, and of course, as soon as The Dress is released, you'll see the images here. Full Story

Scooping the Dress

So we're less than 24 hours away from the wedding. And the big scoop, the big get right now is confirming the designer of Kate Middleton's dress, and of course scoring the first exclusive shot of it. Not when she arrives at Westminster Abbey, because by then two billion people will be seeing it at the same time. Full Story

Red Hair hid the Nails

All the attention yesterday was focused on Blake Lively's new red hair following her appearane at the Time 100 Most Influential People of 2011 gala. So much so that it obscured another detail. Thanks to Lorraine for the email pointing this out. Look at her nails. Is Barbra Streisand coming back? This how my ma wears her nails. Full Story

Nicki Minaj: West Coast to Royal Wedding?

Nicki Minaj arrived in Vancouver yesterday to kick off the Canadian Leg of her tour. As you can see, her face is ready. And her ass! People keep asking me if it's real. Looks really real to me. Tiny little body, bombastic big ass. Amazing. So here's an example of how the British tabloids can drop some dumb sh-t. Full Story

Online shopping, wedding dresses, and more bags

Written by Sasha Hi Sasha. It took me ALL winter but I've finally lost 24 lbs and I am absolutely frothy at the bit to start replacing everything in my wardrobe! Trouble is, I live in a very remote part of Canada so, unless I use my entire new clothing budget to travel to some major shopping opportunities like TO, I'm going to have to restrict myself to ONLINE experiences. Full Story

Katie Holmes > Ashton Kutcher

Lainey Posted by Lainey at April 28, 2011 12:05:26 April 28, 2011 12:05:26

A few weeks ago Star Magazine put Katie Holmes on the cover. It was a scandalous headline about drugs but on the inside it was really just an article about some Scientology method and that she’s really into it, much like some people can be really into running marathons, or activities of that require similar ridiculous effort. Full Story

Colin Firth makes it 5

5 what? It wasn’t intended to be this way when I started writing this morning but somehow every post so far has been about the British. So I thought I’d round it out with 5 straight and move on. You ok with Colin Firth? Or are you going to bitch about it because you “don’t care about the Royal Wedding and why don’t you just stop writing about it Lainey because none of my friends are going to watch, and you keep going on about a non-story?” I’ve received maybe a dozen or so emails like this. Full Story
