Meryl Streep was in London today for the unveiling of the poster for The Iron Lady with the film’s director Phyllida Lloyd. Streep’s portrayal of Margaret Thatcher is expected to earn her yet another Oscar Best Actress nomination. I wasn’t really feeling the teaser trailer that was released in July. As I noted at the time Full Story

Ringer Season 1 Episode 8 recap So…we come in on Bridget, terrified, watching this ultrasound, which is amazing.   Also, if it’s her ‘first’ ultrasound,  let me just say that this is an unusually genteel way to um, check stuff.  Thanks, preggo friends, for filling me in on that particular indignity. Full Story

Jacek and I were in London on Remembrance Day. We walked by the Field of Remembrance at Westminster Abbey. There are so many poppies. Too many poppies. It’s... quite an arresting visual.For the Royal Family this was a significant weekend as the symbols of a nation to lead their people in remembering the fallen. Full Story

Stephanie! I’m sorry I missed your birthday on Friday! HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY! How was Vancouver? And Whistler? BC boys are hot, non? Hope you had a wonderful west coast weekend! Happy 28th Birthday Heather with love from Megan who says…you’re not excited? Because of the number? WHAT??? How about a little “horn dog” Matt Lauer by request to get you out of your buzzkill? Obviously the first photo is my favourite because, in the background, look, it’s papayas! And for Carmela from New Jersey on your 26th birthday…and you have a test. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

November in London to me for the last few years has always been about Harry Potter. And today is the DVD release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. I was here last year for the beginning of the end. Now that the end is passed, it’s time to relive it. Always! For supergeeks like me, that means watching and rewatching the deleted scenes and the DVD extras.

Remember when you fist-pumped at Harry’s return to Hogwarts? When he emerged to confront Snape and they all gathered behind him like, “yeah motherf-cker? Do you want to go?”

Please. I have a lump in my throat just thinking about.

Here, in an exclusive clip from the DVD, they show you how that scene came together.

“Hogwarts will always be there to welcome you home.”

Dear Gossips,

As expected, most of your mail yesterday was about Mimi’s 30 pound weight loss resulting in her size 4/6 as IF body. Mimi being Mimi, there’s so much more.

Curiously, very few of you were yelling at me about Sienna Miller as an option for Princess Grace. In fact, support messages outnumbered the angry ones. I’m attributing this to Blake Lively. You’d now rather anyone over Blake Lively. Even Sienna Miller.

Re: the CMA Awards - most of the photos from the CMA event carpet will be posted directly to LifeStyle including Carrie Underwood, Nicole Kidman, Faith Hill, etc. Please hit up LifeStyle through the day to see those shots and for all of Sasha’s “Finds” posts today. There will be 3.

We’re saying goodbye tonight to Dubai. God I love the Burj Al Arab. I mean, we didn’t play tennis on the helipad or anything but it’s such a beautiful building, truly a work of art. Not only does it look like a sail, but in the daylight, you can almost see it moving. When something made of glass and concrete has that much texture, how can you not be awed? And at night? It’s glorious.

We also went to a rooftop bar where I felt like I was in a pub on Tatooine.

Next stop: London! And the Christmas lights are on now, right?

Please note that Jacek and I are wrapping up our holiday. As such, I will not be blogging tomorrow, Friday November 11th.  I am very, very sorry for the inconvenience and appreciate your understanding.  Next week it’ll be totally back to normal.

Have a great weekend!

Yours in gossip,

Here’s Gwyneth Paltrow at the Bambi Awards today in Germany.  I am writing this on the super-rush heading to the airport so I have no idea what she’s doing there, only that she’s wearing a sparkly green dress that shows off some chest bones and doesn’t really look that great. Today’s Thursday so you know it’s GOOP day and GOOP is giving us her latest Holiday gift guide. Full Story

The Snow White battle royale is over

And not because one project is better than the other. It’s over because they’re so DIFFERENT that comparing becomes pointless.If you’ve been living under a rock, an ongoing movie business story this year is the “Snow White war” being waged between Universal and Relativity. These two used to be financial partners and used to get along pretty well but obviously somebody ran over someone’s dog because they’ve had a falling out that has led to hundreds of millions of dollars in production spending. Full Story

No, actually, I’m not referring to James Franco although I don’t blame you for assuming that the pretension belongs to him since, well, obviously. And there is actually a line in this article that reads: (Ethan Hawke is) James Franco minus the meta-smirk.Here’s Hawke on the cover of the Winter issue of NUVO Magazine. Full Story
