Way to go Life & Style. There was an article I posted a while back about tabloid hierarchy. Click here if you’re new to the site and have not read it. Halle Berry’s faux pregnancy is a good recent example of why I call Life & Style a bottom feeding rag. Full Story

I wrote yesterday that U2 fans have been keeping up with the Bono motorcade while they’re in town and a lucky fan was invited inside his SUV the other night for a photo. Her name is Marley. The photo is attached. And the story is the cutest. In Marley’s words:Hey! I'm the fan that bono invited into his SUV! It was definitely the most exciting experience of my life and he was so incredibly nice. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Jacek left yesterday. Home to Marcus. Here he is after getting picked up. He likes riding shotgun. Even in profile you can still see his prick face. Like he was born to be in the front seat. We live with Beagle Entitlement every day.

But poor Jacek took off a day too early. Because Natalie Portman showed up on the red carpet at TIFF and everyone saw heaven. He’d missed a member of his Freebie Five by just hours. In person she is glorious. More on Natalie Portman later and also, as promised yesterday, all about Colin Firth.

I posted late Wednesday too. SCROLL DOWN to get caught up on Jennifer Lopez etc.

It’s Thursday – and Shelf Ass Jessica Biel and Jessica Alba continue to track the same career path.

But first…

Remember the No Kids article? A controversial defence of those, like me, who have no interest in children? Click here for a refresher.

That piece was inspired by a book called No Kids: 40 Good Reasons Not To Have Children by French author Corinne Maier who is hated by the MiniVan and judged unfit by the sanctimonious Super Mom. The article, like the book, prompted an unprecedented response.

I have received many emails of encouragement from likeminded couples (thank you!) but also many, many emails vilifying our decision – accusing us of tax evasion because their kids would be paying for us in the future (???), blaming us for the decrease in population that will eventually lead to the demise of the human race, and attributing every social ill onto “selfish” people like us who, in deciding not to have kids, are contributing to the erosion of a value system that has long upheld the morality of the human race. For real. And this is nothing compared to Corinne Maier who wrote the book.

She was in Toronto yesterday on promotion. I have 5 signed copies of No Kids: 40 Good Reasons Not To Have Children to give away. If you’re interested, please email inquiries@laineygossip.com with the title NO KIDS by 11:59pm Pacific on Wednesday, September 23rd, 2009. Standard terms apply. Good luck!

Yours in gossip,


Colin & Tom

Please. These men. These suits. I love so much. Colin Firth was in the lobby the other day waiting to exit. I only saw him from behind at first. Noticed the suit. And the height. He is a tall, tall man. And he carries himself so beautifully it’s instantly recognisable. Stationed at the side entrance so as not to be mobbed by the throng outside, his publicist led him out to the sedan waiting to pick him up. Full Story

Pretty-off: Clearwaters vs Cullens

Lainey Posted by Lainey

Vampires are supposed to be breathtakingly beautiful but have a look at these photos of Julia Jones and BooBoo Stewart arriving in Vancouver… Depends on how they style them, I guess, because the Cullens and all their f-cked up wigs are nowhere near as pretty as these two and their onscreen mother. Full Story

Jacket, shoes, pants, bag, body, everything Gwen I want. Gwen Stefani arrived at a studio today in LA, as always, immaculately put together. Gwen’s latest spring collection for L.A.M.B. was presented at NY Fashion Week a few days ago, this season a heavily 80s inspired theme that featured the harem pants she’s been wearing so often lately and also acid wash and studs, well tailored jackets, and some really great accessories. Full Story

This comes as no surprise. For many reasons. Us Weekly reports that Avril Lavigne and Deryck Whibley are done. That she told him she wanted out and that divorce papers will be filed imminently. He is apparently “crushed”. Full Story

How to party with U2

Champagne. Apparently they like their champagne. U2 played Toronto Wednesday, a well timed 2 show stop on their tour to coincide with the festival. They came in a couple days earlier, hit up Colin Farrell’s Ondine premiere, Bono and The Edge popped into the Masonic Temple for a quick visit – photos attached – and post concert last night they celebrated at an exclusive afterparty at ONE where they cleaned out the restaurant of its entire supply of Moet. Full Story

Chace Crawford trying to be Zac trying to be Leo (Popeater)

Charlize Theron almost always delivers. She's a frosty bitch but when it comes to style, she will cut most down handily, no contest. Without much effort, it's what Victoria has to work for hours to achieve. Charlize is in NY to promote her new film The Burning Plain. She arrived at the premiere wearing blue/green and these on her feet. Full Story
