Gabby so popular

Because everyone loves her. Because she’s so charming. Gabourey Sidibe, the star of Precious, hit up the Me & Orson Welles afterparty last night and chatted up LipGloss Zac Efron, some Hills twats, and even the incomparable Joan Collin who seemed rather taken with her Full Story

Selling to the hoarders

My friend Laura, the one with the Robert Pattinson problem, she also has a major fixation on hoarders. It’s her favourite episode of Oprah. I’ve never seen it but I feel like I have because Laura tells me about it all the time. She’s obsessed. Indeed it is fascinating how people are addicted to accumulating. Full Story

GMD: big gun, big heels?

That little Midgey, he’s in his element, isn’t he? Running around Europe shooting action sequences involving daredevil feats and manly man stunts, pointing a gun, clenching his jaw, delivering the most intense oneliner as if his life depended on it, followed by a toothy insane cackle… Just wanted to attach this again in case some of you missed it. Full Story

JailBait dropped the line

Few celebrity offences are more offensive than That Line. You know That Line. When they drop That Line it’s like a spotlight on the soul. Using that line implies conceit, unearned entitlement, arrogance, and disrespect. Users of that line believe they are better than the recipient, that the recipient should be more deferential, that the recipient should consider himself blessed to be in the user’s presence. Full Story

Same side in a booth

It’s a little unorthodox, sure. But you’re an unorthodox guy. And very, very intense. So if you were having lunch with a friend, and the conversation was a serious one, I could totally see you sitting side by side in a booth instead of sitting across. Doesn’t mean you’re f-cking her, right? Because ETonline.com Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Forgive the self-pimp but please click here - it’s my first byline in the Globe & Mail and the Saturday edition too. Jumpy claps! The article is a smutty reflection on Twilight in Vancouver so how appropriate then that while I was celebrating this exciting personal accomplishment on the weekend, a Twi-Hard decided to “chink”-bomb me on Twitter.  Read Full Intro

Natalie & Tobey, no Jakey

At the Brothers premiere in New York last night… Notably absent: Jake Gyllenhaal. They will be pushing Tobey hard for his performance in this movie during awards season. Perhaps scaling back Jakey’s involvement is strategic. There’s been very little buzz so far about Brothers but momentum is starting to build, quietly but it’s there. Full Story

Baby-free hookup

I can’t resist looking at pictures of pretty people together and imagining their lives are perfect. It’s shallow and immature but I write a gossip blog, you didn’t come here for profundity, right? And I know I’m not alone in this. The intoxicating lure of youth and beauty is just one of the reasons why Rihanna and Chris Brown came as such a devastating shock. Full Story

Hate, silliness, and delight

Robin Williams bumped into Cindy Adams today in New York and the paps took this photo and for some reason I couldn’t stop laughing. Next Stacy P forwarded me a link to Gawker’s brilliant post on Katie Couric’s dance photos and I lost it even harder. Click here Full Story

He still has his hair

Iceman I mean. Val Kilmer. Many men struggle with hair loss. It’s a major confidence killer. And Val, well, Val still has his. A lot of it. It’s thick and long, it’s well spread around his scalp, it’s something he can hang on to, it’s where he derives his mojo. Here’s Val at the American Music Awards last night, no idea why, fronting like it’s 1984 and he’s still Kazansky in uniform. Full Story
