No Madge, but can she hang on to GOOP?

Not long ago Tracy Anderson was the sh-t. She was training with Madonna, touring with Madonna, featured by GOOP, opening her own gym in NYC. But no one in NYC seemed interested. Stagnant membership, bad press due to her shady past, accusations that her methods were not realistic, and now the fatal blow… Madonna has discarded her. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Am still buzzing from the Meryl Streep/Johanna Schneller night of girl worship at the Royal Ontario Museum on Wednesday night. And here are some photos from the event courtesy of the ROM. You’ll note the face. A face that’s been allowed to age on its own, without interference. Streep said it herself, of Botox, and of course her 4 words succinctly sum it up for everyone.

“It interrupts the energy.”


Small details keep coming back to me from the evening. Like what she refers to as “My Mythology”, the Meryl Streep reputation, the preparation, the accents, the character submersion…

She, in that way of hers, almost brushes this off too. The best technique, really, according to Meryl Streep, is to simply show up. And when magic happens it’s when you show up as a “blank slate”. This is why Madonna can’t act, see? Madonna overthinks it and can’t let go of it.

The Vanity Fair Portraits exhibit at the ROM runs until January 3rd. You’ll love it. I’m going again in November.

Friday – am back in Vancouver, Twilight exclusives coming up, and the most egregious case of Photoshop f-ckery maybe ever.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING CANADA!!!!!!!!!!

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

PS. I was rushing out of a meeting and checked my Blackberry on Wednesday. 2 minutes later, somehow my trainer Hayley managed to secure my commitment to participating in the Turkey Trot on Monday. The Turkey Trot supports the Vancouver Food Bank. See you there?

Who’s the other one?

LOVE this video. Chris Rock and Nia Long are promoting his documentary Good Hair. During this random, hilarious interview, somehow the discussion turns to white dudes dating black girls. And then Justin Timberlake comes up. And then Marky Mark. And then Brad Pitt, at which point Chris reveals that he knows for a fact that Brad has bedded at least 2 black women. Full Story

JailBait Miley Cyrus abruptly shut down her Twitter this week after posting the following: “FYI Liam doesn’t have a twitter and he wants ME to delete mine with good reason” Liam is the new boyfriend and her co-star in The Last Song and shortly after that tweet, JailBait’s Twitter was deleted, prompting many of her fans to launch a “comeback” campaign imploring her to change her mind. Full Story

Scabby home for turkey?

It’s Canada’s pride and joy Scabby at LAX this morning to catch a flight… Coming home for Thanksgiving? Not sure where she’s going but she’s poor these days, despite refuting tabloid reports that she’s broke ass and can’t pay her renovation bills, no doubt this is still a girl on the hustle. Full Story

It’s Dina Lohan’s mantra. She was in New York yesterday promoting the Shoe-Han. See I don’t have much faith in mankind. Some idiots WILL actually buy this sh-t. After all, there are f-cking losers out there who are also buying Ebola Paris Hilton’s lame sh-t. People suck. So ss you’d expect, Dina was asked at the event about Michael Lohan’s shocking “revelation” Full Story

Jim & Pam. “Frankly, it’s a different sensation.” Entertainment Weekly’s recap summed it up best, the writers did indeed pull it off. And they accurately judged that stupid real life YouTube wedding dance too: embarrassing, desperate, disgusting – in other words, perfect for the staff of Dunder Mifflin. Full Story

The cover of the new issue of FASHION Magazine has been taken over by a member of the Twilight New Moon cast. Noot Seear is Canadian, from Vancouver, and holy f-cking sh-t what a goddamn face. It would have to be, right? Heidi in the book is the ultimate draw: ridiculously beautiful and irresistibly sexy. Full Story
