Dear Gossips,

This is how Johanna Schneller opened An Evening With Meryl Streep:

In a time when almost everything is unpredictable, we can always count on Meryl. For art.

And thus began 90 minutes of amazingness. That Meryl is a master goes without saying. But last night it was more than Meryl. It was Meryl with one of the most esteemed journalists in the field demonstrating that journalism too is an artistic endeavour, especially when pursued with the kind of subtle skill and technique that Johanna Schneller was able to deliver authentically and without pretension – a fangirl who is not a sycophant, and at the end of the day, a reporter who always finds her answer, even when a wily Meryl Streep tries to elude her.

Meryl and Johanna, they are the sh-t. Sorry to be crass but I would eat their f-cking sh-t.

More on Meryl later.

It’s Thursday – am blogging until my flight home this afternoon. My mother has somehow talked me into a drive to the airport. A ride with her never comes without a price.

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

Viggo’s Manbag

Lainey Posted by Lainey at October 8, 2009 14:07:20 October 8, 2009 14:07:20

Written by Jacek Manbags are a touchy area for any straight guy. For most straight guys, I’d say it’s a no go zone (even if they wanted to – which for most guys isn’t even an issue). But under certain conditions, it can be done. However, the dude has to wear clothes well, have good style in general, and has to be comfortable in his own skin. Full Story

Heading to my flight with a smile courtesy of Taylor Swift and Daniel Craig and Lae who forwarded me the link – thanks Lae! Taylor posted this on her Twitter a few days ago. Check out Daniel Craig mugging in the background. His expression! KILLS me! Bond is totally Posh-ing it. Full Story

Manslinger’s Fall Classic hopes

Lainey Posted by Lainey at October 8, 2009 11:21:06 October 8, 2009 11:21:06

It’s on. The American League Division Series is underway, game 1 was last night with the Yankees taking it 7 – 2 over the Twins as New York is favoured, predicted to meet up with the Phillies in the Fall Classic. Kate Hudson was in the stands to cheer on her man, seated beside Jay-Z and Guy Oseary, happy, glowing, and cheering… ARod has had an impressive year. Full Story

Smutty Tingles

Hi gossips…helping smooth out the flight schedule. Me Tingles. She writes. We post more Lainey. And I might finish the day with a little more if I can muster some energy after this morning’s Kunis-Portman overload.  Jacek

An Evening with Meryl Streep

Lainey Posted by Lainey at October 8, 2009 09:05:00 October 8, 2009 09:05:00

Last night at the Royal Ontario Museum, in celebration of the ROM’s Vanity Fair Portraits exhibit, Meryl Streep took the stage with Johanna Schneller to discuss “The Question of Celebrity”. 90 minutes of full-on girlcrush. WORSHIP. I met up with 2 friends afterwards and this is how Gabrielle explained it: What are you great at? The one thing you do that is better than anything else you do? Think about what it is and then know this – it’s still not as good as Meryl Streep’s acting. Full Story

Double Freebie Gorgessity

Jacek will have difficulty focusing today. Two members of his Freebie Five went out last night. Together. Crazy combination of gorgessity. Sick. At the American Ballet Theatre Fall 2009 Gala, Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis arrived arm in arm, co-stars and new BFFs working together on Black Swan currently shooting in New York. Full Story

Twice this week

Look judgy moms! She’s walking again! Little Sci spent the afternoon in Boston yesterday with her mom and grandma and she even ventured out on foot. This is important because many of you have been writing about the fact that she’s always being carried around in photographs. As you can see, Little Sci can indeed amble around on her own. Full Story

Gird yourself

This will be a very immature article. If you’re looking for cerebral content for adults, you should probably skip to the next. But given his wanky ass treatment of his (ex?) girlfriend Carey Mulligan the other night, it totally seems appropriate. Full Story

Granny and her hairpiece

Lainey Posted by Lainey at October 8, 2009 06:45:42 October 8, 2009 06:45:42

Granny Freeze is the official spokesperson for Omega. So here’s Nicole Kidman at the Omega event last night in New York, a striking figure in black, with an Omega appropriate Stepford hairpiece attached to the back of her head. Amazingly enough, Gran’s third lip appears to have tucked itself back under (mostly) her other lips. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Frances Bean Cobain has a hate-on for Ali Lohan. So she posted a vitriolic diatribe on Twitter (her account has since been closed) raging on Ali’s 40 year old “talentless” ass. Not sure what elicited Frances’s fury but, um, while I don’t disagree with the sentiment (of course I agree with the sentiment), the sentiment would perhaps be more effective if, well, if the girl could actually spell.

Like, a 17 year old should be able to spell “career”, right?

Click here to read Frances vs Ali. It’s not a fight until it ends up on Twitter.

And there’s no loser like a Twilight loser.

Some of you are still skeptical about my Twi-Hard Hate Mail. Twi-Hard Hate Mail is alive, widely distributed, and as f-cked up as ever. Anne Helen Petersen is their latest target. Visit her site here and laugh your ass off.

Wednesday – have completed my cameo for the new Degrassi movie, am online all day until An Evening with Meryl Streep (and Johanna Schneller – gah!) at the ROM tonight. Can’t wait!

Yours in gossip,

Lainey
