My friend Lara is in love. She and Ryan have been together a long time. But they fell in love 3 weeks ago with Lucky. This is Lucky. Lucky is half lab, half beagle. A rescue dog. Lucky is lucky to have found Lara and Ryan. And ZadieSmith is lucky to have found Duana. Duana adopted ZadieSmith a few months ago. Full Story
Is Gerard Butler your go-to quiver? If so, it might be time to give him up. Not only because of the carby face and the pants problem and the bubbly moisture that gathers at the corner of his mouth…but because he could actually be infected with the most deadly disease in Hollywood for which there is no cure.

Does he eat anymore? It’s probably the stress. The stress of salvaging a career. Or perhaps the stress of holding back his gay – his costar Thomas Kretschmann is quite the sexy beast. This is the GMD last night in New York at the Valkyrie premiere without KatE who was probably stuck on Broadway but who hooked up with him later on at the afterparty lest you think she was anything but supportive of her man.

Chris Weitz, director of About a Boy and the Golden Compass, has been confirmed as the new director for New Moon, the sequel to Twilight. My sources tell me he arrived in Vancouver on Sunday and has spent the last couple of days beginning pre-production, in meetings with local crews, and starting to scout locations in preparation to shoot in March which means, ugh, my city this Spring will be taken over by screaming AssLight superfans and their equally, um, enthusiastic mothers.

The hell of Christmas shopping. And we’re still not done. It’s children’s Christmas shopping that’s the worst. Christmas shopping for a 6 year old girl, our niece. The most soul-sucking, demoralising experience, sanity-threatening experience. Somehow my husband turned into his father in the Bratz aisle at Toys R Us, sputtering “whores!” over and over again when he was introduced to the one that helps you with your nails…? Then I found myself at my favourite Vancouver children’s bookstore where a woman was looking for new reading material for her 12 year old granddaughter. The girl’s mother had requested a classic so, naturally, Little Women was suggested. And the grandmother’s reply?
“She’s just finished Twilight… I don’t think Little Women would appeal to her”.
God save the children.
It’s Monday – am blogging all day. Check back often. Final riddle of the year – it’s a double.
Yours in gossip,
Oh but those dumb Hollywood twats never will. Like…even her name kicks my ass. Meryl Streep. Meryl. Streep. We get assigned randomly on junkets at eTalk. If they assigned me to a Meryl Streep junket I swear I would flat out refuse. Why pollute her air with my smutty stank? No. Kramer vs Kramer was on tv the other day. Full Story
Well this is a new Sherlock. Couple of stills from Guy Ritchie’s upcoming Sherlock Holmes movie have been released – RDJ looking like he’s in the middle of a scrap with his shirt off showing off his tight abs. That’s what I’m talking about. LOVE the way his belt sits on his waist. Full Story
Those of you who watch Friday Night Lights already know the amazing amazingness of Taylor Kitsch. Those of you don’t… well why not?!???? Come May, you will.

It not being about the money? Please. What happened is the British press firmly planted on the side of their homeboy against the aging American superstar who happens to be a tough ass bitch. Which is why, now that the financial – or as John Mayer would say the “pecuniary” – details of their divorce have been settled, Madonna has instructed her mouthpiece Liz Rosenberg to release the figures.
