Dear Gossips,

There’s a headline on right now titled “Meet Kate Bosworth’s new guy”. Really? Can Kate Bosworth “make” someone just by dating him? This is how you know it’s a slow week in a slow month.  Read Full Intro

I don’t know what it says on an iPhone, but on my Blackberry, when the phone rings, it’s either “answer” or “ignore”. This is Jennifer Lopez on the Georgia set of What To Expect When You’re Expecting looking down at her cellphone and my first assumption was - it’s Marc, IGNORE, let it go to voice. Full Story

Sarah from Cinesnark wrote about the sucking of the Oscars earlier - click here if you missed it - and then I saw these photos of Roberto! Benigni today in Italy shooting Woody Allen’s The Bop Decameron and, well, it reminded me of the best Oscar moments, the ones that are spontaneous and authentic, like when Roberto! almost stepped on Steven Spielberg’s head on the backs of chairs on his way to collect the Best Foreign Film Oscar from Sofia Loren. Full Story

Hathaway as Catwoman

Lainey Posted by Lainey at August 5, 2011 12:44:11 August 5, 2011 12:44:11

Warner Bros released the first photo of Anne Hathaway as Catwoman today. It’s a little underwhelming. I mean, I know Christopher Nolan doesn’t do cheese so her cat-mask is more like a set of goggles and I don’t see any pointy ears which, fine, because camp has never been the tone of this particular iteration of the franchise but if that’s the case, when you’re introducing her to me for the first time, at least give me some idea of why she’d be called Catwoman, some sense of her pussy-themed personality because otherwise, this is just a badass stuntwoman going Lara Croft on a boss looking bike, you know what I mean? Also… The image, obviously, is from a scene in the film so, you know, it can’t be too posed and perfect, I get that, but I look at that background and all I can think about is how much I hate the paint colour and who’s going to pull the fire alarm? They’re still shooting the movie. Full Story

That Pippy sure is gracious

There’s a post on Cele|bitchy today about how kind Justin Timberlake was recently at a club to one of the servers. Not! Pips ordered a glass of champagne, then barked at the poor girl because it was too flat. Full Story

Written by Duana There’s a guy I knew in university. We were buddies, but he’s moved away. We don’t really keep in touch, per se, but every year, without fail, he posts some Buffy-related item on my wall on my birthday. That kind of kindness means we should probably talk more. Full Story

Gwyneth, Madonna, Harvey, Obama

Interesting lead item that appeared in Page Six today - there's to be an Obama fundraiser in New York next week at Harvey Weinstein's. For the privilege of sharing an intimate discussion with the President, celebrity guests are paying over $71,000 a couple. Full Story

I should have known this would happen

Written by Duana I don’t have foresight. FIRST, my friend and colleague Shelley showed me a video wherein Kristen Bell irked her (and/or got in the way of enjoying her TV boyfriend Craig Ferguson.) THEN I said she should send it to Lainey, who would no doubt feel the same way. Full Story

George Clooney’s modest standards

With all due respect to Stacy Keibler... Because I’m sure she’s very nice. But come on. I had to google to answer the question: What is a Stacy Keibler? Apparently a wrestler. And she was on Dancing With The Sh-ts which I don’t watch so I’d never heard of her. Some other tabloid reported that she’s now George Clooney’s new piece. Full Story

The Oscars go KABOOM in 2012

Lainey Posted by Lainey at August 5, 2011 07:35:00 August 5, 2011 07:35:00

Written by Sarah I cannot stop laughing. The Academy, in all their tone deaf glory, has hired Brett Ratner to co-produce the Oscar telecast in 2012. Are you a fan of Rush Hour? How about Rush Hour 2? Or X-Men: Last Stand—you know, the one where they threw out everything good and interesting about Bryan Singer’s previous two movies? Does the upcoming Tower Heist Full Story
