Sounds like it’s coming. The real vampires arrived in town for Comic-Con this weekend in time for a new episode that aired on HBO last night. Did you watch? Did you PVR? You are devoted, right? It’s the best, non? Here’s the cast on the panel and Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer, and Alex Skarsgard out and about in San Diego and yes, Nelsan Ellis too, because he is so good, so electrifying, Alan Ball extended his time in Bon Temps despite the fact that he should have been terminated after Season 1.

At Comic-Con this weekend – nine months before the release of Iron Man 2 – Jon Favreau and Robert Downey Jr came back to the place that started it all. It was at Comic-Con 2007 where Favreau unveiled a rough cut clip of his first film that earned the approval of hardcore geeks everywhere and started the anticipation that led to its surprising success at the box office.

Gladly. This is Cate Blanchett with husband Andrew Upton arriving at the Sydney Opera House for the Helpmann 2009 Awards honouring the performing arts. Cate and Andrew are currently co-artistic directors of the Sydney Theatre Company and Cate was nominated, though did not win, for Best Actress. Love her so much. Full Story
Next headline: Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are terrible parents because they feed their kids McDonalds. Gwyneth Paltrow “would rather die” than put that sh-t in her kids’ mouths. And many in the judgy mom set totally agree. “You mean you don’t buy organic? (Tut tut!) You mean your children aren’t eating organic? (Tut, tut, tut!)” Go to Whole Foods right now. Full Story
Katie Holmes on So You Think You Can Dance – holy f-cking SUCK. And she spent all that time rehearsing? Hours and hours? And this is the very best they put together? OSCAR WORTHY???
Chicken Fried Britney’s half ass vaginal fondles at the MTV VMAs required more energy than what Robo delivered last night. Will elaborate later.
Twi-Hards congregated in San Diego yesterday for Twilight New Moon and screamed their tits off but it’s Johnny Depp’s worst kept secret surprise appearance to support Tim Burton that’s been the major coup of the convention so far. He is such a f-cking star. Laura had to lord it over me yesterday that she’s made him laugh before. Over the phone. It’s her favourite zinger and she uses it sparingly but it works every time. Bitch.
Friday. New articles all day. Have a great weekend!
Yours in gossip,
PS. Have been hotel hopping all week, still in Toronto and can’t wait to get home to Vancouver on Sunday but staying here at the new Hyatt Regency Toronto on King Street has been truly impressive. Many of you have emailed lately asking about a good place during TIFF. I’m a picky bitch. And my mother is even pickier. And she is threatening to move in for the weekend because not only is the bed perfect but the pillows are perfect and it’s so hard in a hotel to get perfect pillows but they’ve done it and almost everything else is right too, especially the wireless speed because some hotels have bullsh-t for wireless – except the Squawking Chicken’s only complaint (because there’s always one) is that they don’t have a microwave. Needless to say, she’s scraping. A big hotel that feels like a boutique hotel in a kick ass location. And the service is impeccable. See you during the festival? And for the benefit of you cynical crusty bitches out there – yeah, I’m paying.
PPS. Two girls in a limo is not Denise Richards and Pamela Anderson.
Bring it. You love it. I’d buy tickets and invite all of you to come watch. Megan Fox is at Comic-Con to promote Jennifer’s Body. At some point she picked up a Robert Pattinson/Entertainment Weekly pillow and posed with it, and of course you remember that there were rumours a few months ago that he f-cked her in LA, which made the Twi-Hards crazy because according to them Robert Pattinson’s sparkling penis only dazzles for Kristen Stewart.

We are helping? As imaginary friends of Jessica Simpson, I think our work is working. No more articles on People.com from “friends” describing that she’s sad and mopey and a total loser sitting on her mom’s couch drunk texting Tony Romo. Instead, two sightings in a row that reflect a more pulled-together, more positive, more defiant Jessica. Full Story
Stop reading here if you can’t handle the spoilers. Sex & the City the second movie – a few exclusive plot details. You ready? Ugh. My sources tell me that JailBait Miley Cyrus, as of this week, is confirmed to be on set for one day. Not known yet exactly what she’s playing but f-ck, it’ll make her head bigger and mashed mouth even more annoying. Full Story
Heh. Cruz has a hawk. And Becks is showing off a new cut too. I love. I die. While Posh was sitting stiffly on a swing yesterday, David Beckham took his boys shopping – I guess this is how they parent? Because Victoria takes them shopping with her all the time too. Like there’s no other way to entertain children. Full Story
It’s a book by French author Corinne Maier called No Kids: 40 Good Reasons Not To Have Children that caused a sh-t storm in her country when it was published last year and will be available in Canada (and the US I’m assuming) on August 4th – can’t wait to read it – and inspired the recent cover story in Maclean’s Full Story
