Never thought I’d hate on the 80s. But Gossip Girl did the 80s a disservice on Monday night’s episode. Worst episode of the year. So no wonder it’s been rumoured that they’ve killed the Lily spin-off. Because who really cares about Young Lily? Especially when she’s played by Brittany Snow? It wasn’t all Brittany Snow’s fault. Full Story

Posh arrived at Heathrow after a couple of days in Milan with David Beckham. As you can see, she’s carrying a huge white Hermes bag that’s probably empty. She’s also wearing a pair of skinnies that don’t actually make her look invisible. Chill. It’s not like I’m saying she’s not thin. Full Story

A very pretty birthday

He really did look extra pretty on his birthday. Especially the close up on his face, see? Framed by his hood, mouth closed in a semi pout, Robert Pattinson quivered the loyal fans waiting outside in the rain last night as he celebrated his birthday at Glowbal in Yaletown. He did not disappoint, gamely signing autographs and posing for photos before leaving. Full Story

Penelope Cruz has the Oscar. Some would argue her sister has the face and the legs. Monica Cruz is labelled an “actress/model/dancer”. She and Pene represent Mango. Apparently she’s been in a few movies. This week she was posing on a car in Berlin promoting her latest Jerry Cotton. As you will see, this is a girl who knows what she’s doing. Full Story

George Clooney knows it. If Daniel Day Lewis is in the running for an Oscar, everyone else can pretty much take the night off. From the looks of the new Nine trailer, he’s assured of at least a nomination next awards season. DDL stepped into the role originally confirmed for Javier Bardem who dropped out due to exhaustion. Full Story

A job. A real acting job. Hollywood is all about 5th chances. And this is Lindsay’s – confirmed to star in an indie comedy about a grad student doing research on a remote island and the characters she encounters along the way costarring Woody Harrelson, Alanis Morissette, Giovanni Ribisi, and Dave Matthews. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

I resent the fact that I’m being forced to know about these Jon and Kate 8 baby people because almost every tabloid insists on putting these two famewhores on the cover. Apparently they’ve run out of Brad Pitt/Angelina Jolie pregnancy/breakup/adoption/cheating/voodoo/brother lover/threeway with Jennifer Aniston stories. What? Impossible!

Am not blogging about the crazy octo-parents. Why? Because civilians are not celebrities. Also...too many babies. Don’t like babies to begin with, especially not 8 of them. Ugh.

Wednesday – home from Vegas, blogging all day. Scroll down for late posts from yesterday afternoon including... Harry on location!

Yours in gossip,


PS. The Venus Embrace look book updated tomorrow! Click here to catch up if you haven’t checked out the previous looks.

It’s been four years since Jennifer Lopez worked on a movie. And finally, today, she was back on set to start shooting something called The Back-up Plan about a single woman pregnant with twins via artificial insemination who falls in love on the day the babies are conceived. Not to be confused with The Baster starring Jennifer Aniston about a single woman who gets pregnant via turkey baster only to find out 7 years later her best friend used his sperm to make it happen. Full Story

!!!!!!!!!! It was announced today that Kings of Leon will perform for the first time on MTV at the Movie Awards. For sure Caleb’s voice will hold up much better than Chris Martin’s last year. Ugh. Do you remember that? Like, quit jumping around if you can’t sing and jump at the same time. Full Story

My husband has been on me all day about featuring Shu Qi because he’s been stalking her on Getty. He thinks he’s an Asian specialist now, he can actually tell us apart. And right now he’s all about how hot she is. Can’t get over how hot she is. Me I’m partial to Maggie Cheung. Full Story

It begins. Another Cannes Film Festival. And at tonight’s opening gala, a goddess arrived. Her name? Tilda Swinton. Please. Who else? I LOVE how far she has to bend down to greet that woman. I LOVE how graceful she is. I LOVE how beautiful she is. Beautiful but not delicate. And this is good. Full Story
