Dear Gossips,

Last night I saw it. Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. Have been in Harry Potter heaven ever since – humming the theme, daydreaming about quidditich, wishing for a potion to cure my cold. This is why I am in New York. I begged to be in New York. Once a year it’s the only assignment I beg for at etalk. And I start early. Like months and months ahead. I compliment Stan every day. I send him random emails telling him he’s a handsome, wonderful father. When I’m in Toronto, snacks are known to end up on his desk, and other goodies throughout the day. He’s number 1 on the Freebie Five…

Because I am not normally the junket girl. My colleagues are so much better in junket situations, and junkets can eat up your day, same goes for the travel, and I hate to be away from my blog.

Harry is the exception though. For Harry I beg. Especially when there’s the opportunity to see the film AND to interview the cast!

Am interviewing the cast this afternoon for etalk – Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint, Michael Gambon, and David Yates the director. Videos will begin airing on etalk next week.

But… I have no papayas! F-ck.

It’s Friday. Am blogging all day until the junket and tweeting when I can’t be online. Check my Twitter here.

Have a great weekend!

Yours in gossip,


PS. Am working on the HP6 movie post. It’s long, will take some time. Trying to get it done before the end of the day. If you need something to go on in the meantime, I tweeted about it last night. Don’t fight me on Alan Rickman. I will cut you.

It’s a Harry Potter day but it’s also an I Hate People day. Because some people are so f-cking dumb. And I’m not referring to a Twi-Hard. Tyce Diorio choreographed Katie Holmes’s upcoming number on So You Think You Can Dance – a tribute to Judy Garland. Said Diorio of Robo’s performance: “The thing that is so awesome is that you won’t know, you don’t know what to expect … but then when you sit and watch it, it’s amazing. Full Story

If you post her they will pap

Wednesday I pitted Monica against Penelope. Today, these shots come out of her on the beach with some dude in Ibiza. Coincidence? Yes. But let’s run with the belief that if we keep writing about her, the paps will continue to follow her and feed us the goodness that I bring to you in full color below. Full Story

Smutty Tingles

Lainey’s stepping away to interview the Potter kids and will be tied up for a bit but will try to Tweet when she can. So here’s the plan Gossips. I’ll do Tingles one more time (properly this time I hope) and post one article that you’ll have to excuse me for cause it has to be done. And after that we should be able to finish with a little more of Lainey’s writing to the relief of many of you I’m sure.


So here goes…

Jude showing Rob how to avoid the crazies (Dlisted)

Megan Fox…expanding implants and the dreaded skinny jean/ballerina slipper combination. No thanks. (Hollywood Tuna)

Homewrecking goes mobile (Just Jared)

What did I say happens when I do Tingles? This time more than a slip. (The Superficial)

If I had a male Freebie 5, he’d only be second to Kobe Bryant (PopSugar)

Eobla in court for neglecting movie commitments? Shocking. (INO)

Elle Macpherson looking fine in a tight dress (Drunken Stepfather site NSFW)

Two random pics a week apart and a love triangle story is made! (Cele|bitchy)

Ben on how JLo nearly ruined his career (ASL)

How about this for hot pregnant bikini shots?? (The Blemish)

Edward Anthony Masen Cullen

Robert Pattinson? He doesn’t matter. Apparently, according to Jackie A from New York, what matters is Edward Anthony Masen Cullen. Who is divine. So the real Robert Pattinson, who wants to be an actor, apart from the Twilight hysteria, is irrelevant? This may not be the perspective of every Robert Pattinson fan, but it certainly is the perspective of a great many Twi-Hard. Full Story

Weekly crack tweets

Best way to kick off the weekend – with some incoherent crack babble courtesy of Lilo’s Twitter. Last night she was at it again, obviously desperate for attention, and bored, and cranked, with her blackberry in hand and a mind understimulated by constant shopping. First this post:Some guy just grabbed my waist-2hands-both sides. Full Story

Entourage Season 6 and DVD giveaway!

The boys are back this Sunday – the 6th season of Entourage kicks off this weekend (Sunday, July 12 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT on HBO in Canada and the US) and judging by the screener of the first 2 episodes they sent over, all signs point to a more thoughtful, less frivolous direction. Still fun, but not so random. Full Story

Pippy the superhero?

Hollywood f-cking shenigans… I don’t understand why they haven’t already offered this to Bradley Cooper. Instead, he’s one of three on the shortlist, alongside Ryan Reynolds and … Pipsqueak Justin Timberlake! His balls haven’t fully dropped and he’s supposed to convince us he can fight danger and save the world? Please. Full Story

Granny Freeze: no love, no loyalty

Word is Granny Freeze Nicole Kidman has fired her publicist of 15 years. That’s a long, LONG time. The reason? Gran is blaming Catherine Olim for the current suckassness of her career. As you know, her box office has been dismal, and Australia was a massive, embarrassing, and expensive example of it and so Nicole is looking for a new rep, a new direction, like it’s everything to do with strategy and nothing to do with the fact that her face doesn’t move and she’s a fraud for f-cking with it? That may be what she’s telling herself but it’s certainly not an accurate assessment of her own image. Full Story

6 weeks ago the tabloids caught him with a woman’s legs wrapped around his waist in New Orleans, there on location shooting Jonah Hex. Josh Brolin’s rep denied any wrongdoing on his part but the photo –and the thigh – speaks for itself. Click here Full Story

Back to real life

Because their real life is so grueling. Posh and Becks were celebrating their 10th wedding anniversary in the Seychelles but returned today, touching down at Heathrow looking coordinated and perfect, with their grim faces on for the paps like they’re sad to see them. Oh please. After picking up the kids in France somewhere David, I think?, is expected to return to LA for the Galaxy’s new season, just in good time for the release of The Beckham Experiment on July 14th, a new exposé on the superstar footballer’s move to America and the f-ckery behind the scenes. Full Story
