It sucks that Madonna fell. Thankfully the injuries are not serious. Also sucks for her longtime publicist Liz Rosenberg who is repeatedly asked to lie for her client. About adoption, about divorce, and now about a horse. As reported yesterday, Madge’s team initially blamed her accident on a pap and the pap retorted by saying he was nowhere near her when she bailed.
The police are now backing up the photographer and Sgt Herbert Johnson from the Southampton Village Police Department went so far as to clarify that “there is no mention of photographers. It's a matter of spin control that went out of control. If they felt there was something else, they would have written 'paparazzi' in the form -- if they felt there was a problem." Click here for more details and here for the police report.
Madge’s failed sympathy grab makes me sad. Like she keeps trying so hard: to stay forever young, to out-adopt Angelina Jolie, to save the world Kab-styles, and more money, more money, more money…is Madonna even fun anymore?
Tuesday – am blogging all day, check back often.
Yours in gossip,
Very, very strong episode last night. Because it was funny! Great timing, great chemistry between (most of) the actors, and as we concluded in the end – no Vanessa = good show. Poor V. Nobody missed V. In place of V enter Gabriel. Bland, taupe, but with a secret Poppy plotting against Serena. It’s the people around Serena who make Serena interesting. Full Story
Rachelle Lefevre in Vancouver the other day enjoying the weekend sunshine before getting to work on New Moon. Never knew but as you can see, she has an amazing ass. It’s hard to tell behind all that hair. She also looks like she knows about good photo ops, stopping for a homeless person to give him some change. Full Story
Christian Bale and Mark Wahlberg have signed on to a new biopic called The Fighter about Irish Mickey Ward. Bale will play Marky Mark’s half brother who ends up training him. As E! pointed out, the director is none other than David O Russell who, like Christian, had a meltdown on the set of I Heart Huckabees in a tirade against Lily Tomlin. Full Story

My beloved cousin Cat is pregnant. Over pregnant. Cat is little, and her baby is big. And he’s taking his sweet time and she’s uncomfortable. Cat also loves Rafa. She’s at home, and she checks a few times a day, so I thought maybe the sight of him, his abs all sweaty, and so sweet in pink at a presser at the Conde de Godo might help the baby along. Full Story
She’s happy and I am happy for her. Her husband, after pretending he was all punk as f-ck, came back for her on his hands and knees. Mandy Moore is worth it. Which is why it makes me sad to see an orange Mandy, photos from this weekend, in Vegas, borrowing Lindsay Lohan’s spray tan to give herself a dirty face. Full Story
Most of Harry Potter is shot on a soundstage outside of London. I had the extreme pleasure of spending a day there on junket last year – sat in the Great Hall, in Umbridge’s office, in Dumbledore’s office, at the Ministry of Magic… It made the top 5 list of best days of my life. Full Story
