Dear Gossips,

A brief but bonus Sunday post today with so many photos piling up and so many photos to come as the Teen Choice Awards go down tonight, am attempting to lighten the blog load for tomorrow’s column.

All the screaming, all the adolescents, all the cougar mothers… is this why Posh flew back from Denver? To make sure Becks isn’t too tempted by an 18 year old who will do anything for fame?

More on Victoria below.

Also in this short special weekend edition: LipGloss to LA, and yum… some Jackson Rathbone. That’s enough, non?

Yours in gossip,


PS. Could not resist posting these when I saw them. A throw back to the day. Big Daddy Kane performed at Celebrate Brooklyn 2009 yesterday. It’s ’88. Time to set it straight.

Not sure what this latest f-ckery is all about except to say that it was no ordinary dinner with the moms. After all, it’s John Mayer. In a monogrammed jacket with a friend and their moms as their dates, surrounded by paps, no doubt another John Mayer inside joke that only inhabitants of clever cleverland will understand. Full Story

Vampires flying

Twi-Hards are on high alert today. Several members of the cast, including Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, will be present, front and centre, at Teen Choice tonight. Given the intrigue lately surrounding Stewart and Pattinson’s rumoured romance, Twi-Hards are clutching their books to their bosoms extra tightly getting moist at the prospect of real life love between Bella and Edward. Full Story

LipGloss goes home…

Lainey Posted by Lainey at August 9, 2009 09:31:00 August 9, 2009 09:31:00

He’s been in Vancouver for a few weeks working on Charlie St Cloud, keeping a very low profile, head down, working hard, trying to avoid exposure as much as he can, not unlike his hero Leonardo DiCaprio – discretion and mystery, Leo said. And so LipGloss follows. But while Leo made the decision to ignore the teens at the height of his fame post-Titanic, that decision is much harder for Zac Efron though he’s been slowly plotting his exit, he is still tethered to the Disney rope for now. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

For all the money they spent on marketing the movie, GI Joe desperately needs a big box office win this weekend. As part of the promotional strategy, the studio also deliberately withheld the film from critical review claiming they wanted “the audience to define the film”. Which means, no surprise, that it probably sucks.

And that also means it’ll make a sh-tload of money this weekend.



Because good taste is dead.


If, however, you’re in the mood for something else, something much more delightful, something well written, something that does not insult your intelligence, and not a dumbass chick flick, remember that (500) Days of Summer opens in wide release today. It’s amazing. And you’ll want to see it again and again. I’m sorry I forgot to embed the video yesterday. See below.

Friday. Finally. New posts all day…until it’s time for golf. Have a great weekend!

Yours in gossip,


PS. For those of you reliving your 80s after the news about John Hughes – have you seen this? Click here to read about his pen pal. And thanks to everyone who sent the link.

Work out together, hang out together

Several Twilight cast members left Vancouver today to head to the Teen Choice Awards in LA. Last night they once again gathered together for a group dinner, walking in a row downtown, reminds me of that press shot of Friends…was it Season 7? By request, Twi-Hards, by request, the photos are attached. Full Story

Hand clasp or finger link?

Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry went out last night. So perfect. Ugh. Anyway, note the way they’re holding hands. We talked about this backstage at a live show recently, Dylan and I. A live show is a lot of standing around. At eTalk they get us all dressed up and made up hours before so we can shoot next day links and then we end up waiting for hours until we go to air. Full Story

Lilo on the cover of UK Elle, the photoshoot where those jewels went missing. But the best is what the editor Lorraine Candy has written about the experience in her standard address: "Lindsay Lohan wrote me a note during this month's cover shoot. It read: 'Let's do it again some time. Full Story

Facetime for Elizabeth

Lainey Posted by Lainey at August 7, 2009 12:28:18 August 7, 2009 12:28:18

Often overshadowed by younger castmembers – the kids, you could say – so before the weekend begins, a little facetime then for Elizabeth Reaser, shot in Vancouver yesterday afternoon. Cast has been busy training, it’s getting much more physical for most characters this go round. Still prepping, wigs, wardrobe, etc but they break for the weekend as usual and also the Teen Choice Awards on Sunday, airing Monday. Full Story

Spittle figures it out

She’s boring. Had to laugh when I saw these photos. Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler on set in New York and Spittle is yawning…because, as my mother would say, being with her it’s so f-cking dow Full Story
