I am not an Oprah Winfrey fan. But I am definitely a fan of how Oprah responded to Chris Brown. Background: After Chris Brown beat his girlfriend, tried to force her out of his car, punched her repeatedly, and choked her until she almost lost consciousness Oprah dedicated a show to all “the Rihanna’s of the world” focusing on domestic violence, victims of abuse, and treatment for abusers and the abused. Full Story

Jessica Simpson was the special guest model at the Ozlem Suer fashion show in Paris today. Yes, I hate the dress too. And the shoes stink of hooker-wear. Having said that, big ups to the designer for putting a body on the catwalk that isn’t allergic to food. Because aside from the assy styling, Jessica looks great. Full Story

Ellen & Joe

Two days in a row of Ellen Page, love it. Love it even more because it’s with Joe. So rare the Joe candids. Ellen and Joseph Gordon Levitt were photographed yesterday in LA on the set of Inception. Joe has enjoyed a great summer. (500) Days of Summer has just surpassed the $25 million mark, now considered a major success, especially since the film’s budget was only $7 million. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Chris Brown’s lawyer performed very well on Larry King last night, non? After all, he did most of the effective talking for his inarticulate client, and aside from an innocuous little blip during which, oh, he might have giggled about that morning when he first received the phone call alerting him to a new celebrity client who beat down his celebrity girlfriend – these are laughing matters, right? – Mark Geragos was masterful. And Chris Brown needed him to be. Because Larry King, surprisingly, had him on the ropes.

Indeed, Larry actually pressed. He pressed him on the violence, he pressed Brown on the what happened, the why, and the how, and then he ran out of time on his conduct since, although credit him, he did make a pointed comment about how Chris’s joyriding on a jetski did not look good.

Clearly Larry does not like Chris Brown. He could barely hide his disdain.

But the ticker told the tale.

The ticker at the bottom with viewer comments, many of them disgusted, not believing Brown’s apology. But there were also those who have already forgiven, who believed his insincere babble, who are convinced he made a mistake, does not deserve the grief, and wish him well going forward. They are convinced of his contrition.

What contrition?

Last night was not about apologies, not about helping others, not about anything but promoting Chris Brown.

From his outfit (baby blue and styling is not actually understated, serious, or sorry), to his diamonds, to his mamma by his side and his lawyer calling him a “son” at the very end, it was a message heard loud and clear: I look good, I feel good, I’m still on top of the world, and you need to keep me there. Please don’t. Let this motherf-cker taste some sh-t for a change. Then we can talk about forgiveness.

It’s Thursday and Rocco is in the spotlight.

Yours in gossip,


PS. This is for Stan. Remember the night my ass was hanging out going up the stairs and we stopped for “tea” at that Chinese restaurant and stumbled home at dawn? Will miss you. Stay in touch.

He looks…

Not gross. Can hardly believe it. Candid photos of Ed Westwick that don’t make me want to turn out the light. Shamef-ck? Is that really you? Your feet are not disgusting me. I don’t see your chest hair. What’s happening? Ed and Leighton Meester walked to set together continuing to shoot the new season of Gossip Girl. Full Story

Listening to Leo

LipGloss Zac Efron has maintained a very, very low profile in Vancouver while working on his new film Charlie St Cloud. Stays away from party places, is smart about his movements, and is focusing all his energy on his role. He is professional on set, rather aloof but polite, and eager to learn, clearly intent on modelling his career after his idol Leonardo DiCaprio. Full Story
