It kills me. All over it. And a wonderful answer to Why Ryan Gosling? He’s hot to look at sure. But the bonus is so much personality. Sigh. Wish it was me he took on a date to Disneyland. Not me. Obviously. It was Kat Dennings – click here for a refresher Full Story

They should date. No clue if they’re compatible, not sure if they get along. But their names sound good together. And the combination is like a hotness explosion. This is Christian Serratos, ridiculously attractive, yesterday in Vancouver shopping with a friend. Quick check of Christian’s IMDB shows no bookings after the Twilight Saga. Full Story

Tilda Swinton is in Venice for the film festival promoting a film called lo sono l’amore. Don’t care what it’s about. Tilda is all that matters. She also walked the carpet for Michael Moore’s latest Capitalism: A Love Story. Early reviews for Capitalism are positive. Of course. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Last night in my sleep the complete dvd set of True Blood Season 3 arrived at my house for my birthday. The entire dream revolved around my efforts to sit down and watch, thwarted at every turn by a series of interruptions – the phone, my mother, my husband, my dog – and when I finally found myself free from distraction, in front of the tv, remote in hand, ready to press play, the goddamn alarm went off.

F-ck.

My dreams are rarely so vivid. Wonder what it meant.

Many of you have written to ask about Jane Bussmann’s book The Worst Date Ever – here’s what I noted about it earlier in the week: 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.

Bussmann 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.

I was sent a review copy from the UK. Unfortunately, it’s not available here. Am continually baffled by the way publishing works between countries. No doubt some smartass will send me an email today lecturing me about the process. Doesn’t change the fact that as of right now, The Worst Date Ever has not been acquired by a North American publisher…but Lauren Conrad can sign a 3 book deal???

This is why you cannot find it in a North American store. You can however buy it here.

It’s Friday and it’s the long weekend! Have a great long weekend!

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

PS. Will you be my TIFF BFF? Last day to send in your submissions! Many thanks to P&G GET UP CLOSE for supporting the contest. Click here for more details.

I am not an Oprah Winfrey fan. But I am definitely a fan of how Oprah responded to Chris Brown. Background: After Chris Brown beat his girlfriend, tried to force her out of his car, punched her repeatedly, and choked her until she almost lost consciousness Oprah dedicated a show to all “the Rihanna’s of the world” focusing on domestic violence, victims of abuse, and treatment for abusers and the abused. Full Story

Jessica Simpson was the special guest model at the Ozlem Suer fashion show in Paris today. Yes, I hate the dress too. And the shoes stink of hooker-wear. Having said that, big ups to the designer for putting a body on the catwalk that isn’t allergic to food. Because aside from the assy styling, Jessica looks great. Full Story
