On Love & Other Drugs

As noted in my Colin Firth article earlier about The King’s Speech, I don’t know what it is about this time of year that makes me (we?) so much more receptive to the heart-swellers. It’s American Thanksgiving. And while I am not American and already celebrated Canadian Thanksgiving, it’s like a switch that gets flipped, perhaps around the same time as Christmas lights (cheese!), when “feelgood” becomes an unconscious motivation, when it’s easier for petty bitches like me to want the best for other people. Full Story

Harry Potter money buys toilet seats

Favourite photos of the day. Rupert Grint was photographed at Heathrow today carting along a Japanese Toilet Seat. No, for real. According to the photo agency, this Japanese Toilet “offers features such as slow closing, electronic bidet, and warm heated seat”. OMG. Is this what I need for my poo problem? Part of it is totally psychological for me. Full Story

Play the chords lower

Did you download Kanye West’s new album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy? I did. And I’m really into it. Haven’t been able to go through it over and over again yet, but on first play it’s good. Some would even say it’s great. Even the critics. Almost unanimously. Which is an accomplishment in and of itself since, well, he’s not exactly Mr Popular with the media. Full Story

Not a cash bar wedding

Lainey Posted by Lainey at November 24, 2010 12:44:07 November 24, 2010 12:44:07

I’ve bitched about it before: cash bar weddings. Relax. I’m not saying everyone has to pay for a splashy wedding. I’m not saying that if you marry in the church hall where your parents used to play and it’s a lovely, intimate affair that this applies to you. I’m just saying if you’re inviting a hundred + people, and that dress is a statement, and the venue is somewhere supposedly all class, and your wedding photography is choreographed like an advertisement for stationary, a cash bar wedding is the total sh-ts. Full Story

Leighton getting paid

Lainey Posted by Lainey at November 24, 2010 12:12:45 November 24, 2010 12:12:45

As you know, Blake Lively is considered the real superstar among the Gossip Girl actors, even though Leighton Meester’s Blair Waldorf is the heart and soul of the show. Since Leighton’s cut of fame is inexplicably – tits aside – so much smaller than Blake’s, it always makes me happy to see her getting some play, though I’m still not sure if this constitutes pity-happy or real-happy. Full Story

Sorry it’s been a little slow this morning. I had a monster shoot for etalk and E! Canada (launching on Monday!) as we’re trying to cram in my pieces before I leave for holiday next week. Anyway, I’m back now and blogging all afternoon. Here are some hits from my blogger friends.

Harry Potter & the Reusable Grocery Bag

Lainey Posted by Lainey at November 24, 2010 10:00:54 November 24, 2010 10:00:54

My trunk is filled with reusable grocery bags. Maybe too many. I worry that that defeats the purpose. But there’s a smugness to be derived from pulling up at the cash register and declining a plastic option, non? I mean, I can see my own smugness when it happens. And I can’t seem to stop myself. Full Story

Sesame Street for Tweens

Written by Duana I’ve been in the US for five days, feels like longer. When you’re on vacation you notice the differences more. I love Target and I wish there were more independent restaurants and I forgot about the level of familiarity that people have with their morning show hosts here. Full Story

He’s not a second guest

Lainey Posted by Lainey at November 24, 2010 08:00:29 November 24, 2010 08:00:29

He really isn’t. But the way the timing worked out yesterday at Letterman, Colin Firth had to be. Any show producer would have made the same call. After all, Jerry Seinfeld was there. And he delivered a short stand-up routine. And he spent time on the chair with Dave, talking about his trip to the White House. Full Story

Porny’s not pregnant

Lainey Posted by Lainey at November 24, 2010 07:19:51 November 24, 2010 07:19:51

At least that’s what she told Access Hollywood. The other day the bump-obsessed among you swore up and down that she looked rough at the airport in New York because she’s in her first trimester. Could be. But she says no. “There are no babies yet. Full Story

Riding back for cock

Lainey Posted by Lainey at November 24, 2010 06:30:48 November 24, 2010 06:30:48

No Cammie... why? Us Weekly was the first to report that Cameron Diaz and Alex Rodriguez were seen together at Soho House last week. And now there are photos to prove it. The paps caught the two – click here - luxuriating on a boat in Miami. So I guess she needed some cock for the holiday. Full Story
