Dear Gossips,

Weekend in Whistler wasn’t exactly TIFF training approved. Ugh. Will be a miserable 10 days ahead. Bland chicken breast and vegetables. Great.

It’s a late start today because I couldn’t stop reading last night.

Jane Bussmann’s The Worst Date Ever: War Crimes, Hollywood Heart-throbs and Other Abominations. Sounds like chick lit – don’t worry, it’s not chick lit. It’s a caustic bitch comedy writer former celebrity journalist turned foreign correspondent who actually ended up in war-torn Uganda because she was crushing on an activist John Prendergast and wanted to make him fall in love with her.

Bussman is merciless – on Hollywood, on Ashton Kutcher, on several douchebag dumb twat stars she’s interviewed, and yes, on the vapid celebrity culture that feeds this blog. She’s brilliant. And hilarious. And bitterly contemptuous. Love her so much. The Worst Date Ever - a perfect end of summer read. Full review in book section when I’m done.

Monday – am online all day. Also updated on Twilight business on the weekend. SCROLL DOWN to get caught up.

Yours in gossip,


Hayden, Harry, girls, and glasses

Hayden Panettiere is now dating Lindsay Lohan’s ex boyfriend Harry Morton. She went for a run today with some dude – all the paps keep saying it’s Harry. I forget what Harry looks like and don’t care enough to spend too much time on Google. But I do remember being creeped out by his face because at the time, with Lilo, he was wearing his hair longer and a stubble on his face and it reminded me of the real Chris McCandless of Into the Wild, all gaunt and lonely-eyed up in Alaska… Anyway, this boy, to me, doesn’t look like Harry. Full Story

And his moves are for sh-t. One of my favourite John Mayer stories is when he once revealed, pre-Jessica Simpson and Jennifer Aniston, that when he tired of f-cking hot girl groupies on tour, he’d dabble in the chunk now and again, because thick girls can be more grateful. And sometimes a cock needs a little variety. Full Story

Shooting today – Kristen Stewart’s “Bella” with her mom played by Sarah Clarke who arrived yesterday in Vancouver shooting a scene that’s supposed to be “Florida” at a beach house while “Edward” hides inside from sun. Tonya would not approve but excuse me while I pull out The Swears Full Story

Not sure why I find the manila envelope so hilarious with the TRAVEL DOCS in large black marker noted across it but it’s almost like a lunchbox. And an assistant probably prepared it for him, and tucked it into his backpack. Sorry. Am silly today because of Tonya’s email and The Swears Full Story

As you know, Kate Hudson is boy crazy. Manslinger’s always slinging a man. Manslinger however never slings a man at the expense of her girls. You know those girls? We’ve all known a girl or two who disappears with every new boyfriend. This is not Kate Hudson. Kate manslings constantly. But she is still a constant friend. Full Story
