Kate Hudson was photographed yesterday leaving ARod’s apartment and heading to an acting studio. With Tupperware. An acting studio? Why? She makes the same movie with Matthew McConaughey over and over again. You may have heard, Kate’s ex-husband Chris Robinson is expecting with his girlfriend. Full Story
Am mortified that Lainey called when I was watching America’s Next Top Model and that I had to own up to it. Yes, I’m a complete reality TV junkie whether it involves a bachelorette, castaways on an island, or a group of 12 losers locked in a house. Don’t act like you’re above it. Full Story
Several of you have emailed about George Clooney’s tasty new piece and her resemblance to Cindy Crawford. Cindy happened to be on Good Morning America and The View yesterday to promote her new clothing line at JC Penney. Perfect timing for some side-by-side and recent comparisons. You’re right.

Ran out of time and wasn’t able to address this yesterday, am sure you’ve heard – the Ungaro announcement that Lindsay Lohan has been named the brand’s “artistic adviser”. Based on what? Even Women’s Wear Daily can’t hide its disdain. The news actually leaked a few months ago. Full Story

What’s a good interview?
It’s an honest one. Like the one Antonio Banderas gives on Ellen today when he addresses his wife Melanie Griffith’s addiction and rehabilitation.
Two weeks ago it was announced that Griffith had been admitted to Cirque Lodge, and at the time her publicist, instead of simply requesting privacy, offered a dumbass Hollywood statement attempting to sugarcoat the situation, depicting Melanie’s struggle as a “routine” one.
It’s Antonio who has handled it beautifully, gracefully, and meaningfully. Click here, read his comments, and try not to fall in love with him. Banderas just wrote the lesson plan. If only the Lohan Family would pay attention.
We’re headed for Toronto today as TIFF begins tomorrow. It’s my 4th year. Am still a novice compared to Shinan Govani. Shinan can get into any party, so beloved that Holt Renfrew and Hello Canada are throwing him one during the festival to celebrate his launch. Shinan is invited on every trip, to every opening, every premiere, and doesn’t have enough column space to report everything he sees. What do you with so much stored up smut?
Shinan wrote a book. A book filled with celebrity scandal, very thinly veiled, like a blind item novel, told from the perspective of a diminutive gossip columnist who has been left alone too many times pretending to be asleep in the backroom with Oscar winners while they swingf-ck their best friends.
Bold Face Names by Shinan Govani will be released on September 12th. Five copies to give away. Interested?
Email email@example.com with Bold Face Names as the title by 11:59pm Pacific on Wednesday, September 16th 2009. One book per winner by draw. Contest rules apply. Good luck.
Wednesday – am blogging until our flight. Hate travelling west to east. You lose so much time. And the suckiest part is that I’m missing Glee. PVR anxiety is the worst.
Yours in gossip,
We have to run to catch our flight to Toronto. While we’re en route, please visit my friends. Will blog more if I can when we land. It’s just that… my mother somehow always manages to find her way down to the hotel and she’s a time sucker.
Full day of posts tomorrow to kick off TIFF!

Emily Blunt at LAX yesterday out of Los Angeles and you can see the engagement ring presented to her by, of course, her fiancé (because it sounds so much better when someone else says that word) John Krasinski. Love her travel style. Cute sweater. Emily has been back and forth between New York and LA working with Matt Damon in NYC, flying back to LA for down time while Damon’s in Europe promoting The Informant! Her film The Young Victoria is closing TIFF so she’ll also be in Toronto at the end of the festival though it’s doubtful that John will come with. Full Story
