Congratulations to the organisers, the volunteers, and the sponsors who came together last night at the Giller Light Bash in support of literacy programs at Frontier College. Thanks to those who came to gossip – had a great time meeting you, had a great time yelling at the yappy crowd, and can’t wait to do it again next year. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Mad Men the Season 3 finale on Sunday night – as usual, the writing was strong, the acting wonderful, and it set up an intriguing 4th year, more excellence from the reigning Emmy Award-winning best drama. So 2.3 million viewers rewarded Mad Men for its efforts, a full million LESS than that Kardashian business and the wedding episode featuring Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom, making it the most watched telecast ever on the E! network among women 18 – 34.

Women 18 – 34 would RATHER watch that Kardashian bullsh-t than Mad Men…is that the message? And if that is indeed the message, if Mad Men can’t beat a Kardashian then what kind of a chance does Jon Hamm have at the Sexiest Man Alive? They’ve probably never even heard of Jon Hamm. They can name all ten thousand Kardashians but they likely don’t know Jon Hamm. I hate people.

On that cheerful note – it’s Tuesday, am online all day until the Giller Lite Bash tonight. We are promoting literacy. And, clearly, there’s an entire generation that needs it. Finally found my dress from Shrimpton Couture. It’s reworked vintage. Love it so much. Even Rachel Zoe shops at Shrimpton Couture these days. And Shrimpton Couture is Canadian.

See you tonight at the Giller Lite.

Yours in gossip,



PS. Heads up Vancouver: I hear often from many of you looking to break into show business and now the Insiders are sharing their knowledge. On November 16th at the Stanley Theatre, several industry players from film and television will be sharing their insight at an event to support the Performing Arts Lodge with a few surprise high profile guests that just might make you squeal. Click here for more information. As for your Twilight fans, this could be a good place to investigate the possibility of the 4th film Breaking Dawn coming back to Vancouver.

He flew in to see Katie Holmes in New York. Showed up on set today to visit her, and the paps too, wearing plaid and a big smile. Of course. He looks good. Because I can’t see his tits. Top Gun was on the other day. Not sure what it is about Top Gun but whenever it’s on, I have to watch it. Full Story

Hearing Meryl Streep

After my post on An Evening With Meryl Streep at the ROM many of you asked if there was video. This was the interview with Johanna Schneller during which Streep offered many, many memorable insights including the one about being “capable”. Full Story

Scabby needs a special light

Scabby was in Florida last week to launch her perfume (?) and I remember thinking to myself at the time that she did indeed look a lot less filthy in the pictures – attached. For starters,her outfit is almost decent. And it doesn’t appear like she just came from a session with an entire football team. Full Story

Gwyneth runs

It’s good for the mind. And they say hers is troubled these days. This is my Gwyneth in London with Moses and his little bear. He looks so different with short hair. After mom time, G went for a run. I like those running pants. I need a pair like that, all the way down to the ankles. All of mine stop at the knee. Full Story

I’m almost there. To the point where I’ve started writing a screenplay in my mind. How James Franco and I meet cute, and exchange snappy dialogue, and I sort of know what I’m wearing except I can’t decide on footwear. It’s been a long time since I’ve found a Summer Crush Full Story

The Twi-Hards have turned them into monarchs, waving from balconies and blessing their public. Check out Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner, and Robert Pattinson in Paris with New Moon director Chris Weitz greeting fans from the balcony of their hotel before heading off for more promotion. I can hear my friend Emily’s Sapphic hard-on for Kristen all the way from Vancouver… Totally agree. Full Story
