What is it about being sick that makes you corny? Was so happy to see new photos of Whitney Houston today in London, looking great and lucid and healthy and positive and ready to come back. The new album drops in September and her greatest supporter Clive Davis is already busy engineering what he’s hoping will be her return to the top. Full Story

Channing Tatum’s GQ spread this month in time for this starring role in GI Joe scheduled for release in August. Looks like a horrible movie. And since Sienna Miller is a PR disaster, they need to push out Channing or “Chan” as he likes to be called that much harder. Taking his shirt off is a good start. Full Story

Michael Jackson has been dominating magazine covers. And Jennifer Aniston wants a piece of the action. Every day the paps have been all over the set of Bounty starring Jen and Gerry Butler. She knows this. The entire crew knows this. So in between filming, just after eating – you can see a paper plate and a fork in his hand – Jen and Spittle decide to go for a stroll arm in arm giving the tabloids a story for next week: Jen and Gerry falling in love! Jen decided to make the photo even sweeter by recreating the exact same body position she once held with Brad Pitt in Anguilla on the day their divorce announcement was released. Full Story

This is the title of the email I received from Michelle a short while ago sent to me and Duana. Because the Toronto International Film Festival has just made its first major announcement about the features this year. And Colin Farrell is coming back to TIFF. Last time he eyef-cked Sasha and she walked away. Full Story

Bruno won the box office this weekend with a $30 million opening, further securing Sacha Baron Cohen’s status as a major power player in Hollywood. Did you see Bruno? I have not yet. Will do this week. But I did receive this very interesting message from Ljubica below: So, my husband I went to see Bruno on Saturday (we live in Phoenix, but we are from Toronto). Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Harry Potter, Bill Nighy, great food at Frank, sequins, socks, and accessories at Topshop, skinny jeans at Uniqlo, a great travel sweater on sale at Ted Baker…five days in New York could not have been more fun. Except when I arrived at the airport on Sunday afternoon, they told me my flight was cancelled. Oh. Poor me, stuck here.

So if you’re reading this on Monday morning, I’m most likely on a plane, headed back to Vancouver. Straight from the airport, I’m heading directly to a shoot – and even Jacek can’t wait for this one: will be demo’ing EA’s new games, and going head to head against Venus Williams and Dwight Howard. Will need some Felix Felicitas.

As such, am pre-writing the first part of today’s column to be posted while I’m en route, and will continue blogging when the shoot is over. Articles will include thoughts on Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince and my interviews with the HP cast from Friday. Also… meeting Bill Nighy. I am in love.

Yours in gossip,

Lainey
