You’re right. Many of you have complained that I don’t give Mad Men enough love. True. I should. And many are even more upset that Jon Hamm isn’t allotted enough quiver space. Not that I dispute it if he’s yours but Jon Hamm isn’t my particular loin poison. However, after watching him host Saturday Night Live this weekend, one thing is for sure: there is finally an heir to George Clooney. Full Story
Can you stand it? Can you wait ANOTHER 8 ½ months? If you haven’t seen this trailer, it’ll be harder once you watch. There IS NO EQUAL. Trailer below. And Laura – please, please, PLEASE send me. Full Story
At the 30th Anniversary of the Carousel of Hope Ball the other night - Nicole Richie looking so healthy and so beautiful, with lovely luscious boobs and hips too! After Harlow the fear of course was that Nicole would stop eating altogether. And while she might not eat much, she does certainly eat, and needless to say, this is a good thing: Nicole Richie does not want to become Lara Flynn Boyle… who also happened to be there. Full Story
There are maybe, like, two of you still sitting on the fence about Shelf Ass Jessica Biel’s insatiable appetite for fame and the increasingly embarrassing, not to mention ruthless, ways she’s attempting to achieve it. If this applies to you, I predict you’ll have changed your mind by the end of this post. Full Story
After spending several months in London shooting the Prince of Persia, Jake Gyllenhaal was home with Reese Witherspoon this weekend looking relaxed and relieved too. They made it work through a summer apart – my sources say they promised each other they wouldn’t go more than 2 weeks without seeing each other, which of course involved Reese flying to visit Jakey undercover every fortnight.

Kick off a new week with a little Viggo delight. Here he is in Rome for the Rome International Film Festival promoting Appaloosa which was well received enough but for Renee Zellweger who, terribly miscast, spectacularly sucks it up snapface style. As always though, Viggo delivers a strong performance. Full Story
To Justine – I know things are going to get better and better! Love, Liz Happy Birthday Elaine B from Canmore/Banff, AB or “the other Lainey” with love from your bestest friends. Heard it’s been somewhat sucky lately. Am attaching a reminder of a fun night from not too long ago to hopefully cheer you up just a little. Full Story
So far we’ve managed to stay out of Topshop and Uniqlo. But now it’s the weekend and it’s become unavoidable.
Forgot to mention yesterday something we heard at the Grey Goose Character & Cocktails event the other night. We were on the carpet interviewing arrivals. Elton John’s husband, David Furnish, who was hosting the event, was asked by the intrepid journalist right next to me what he thought of gay witchhunting. The follow up question was about Will Smith: there’s been a report this week that Will Smith is gay and that he’s hiding in the closet because he knows people won’t accept him. Can you comment on that David?
David’s intriguing answer?
When I saw them at our White Tie & Tiara Ball they seemed happy, professional, and very committed.
Interestingly generic choice of words, non?
Thanks for your patience this week during travel and time differences. Blog will be totally regular by Monday. Also appreciate the emails! Am sorry not to reply but am definitely reading everything.
Have a great weekend!
Yours in gossip,
PS. Rihanna and Beyonce are not warring bitches. Also not Liv. Liv has never had to make the leap.
PPS. He’s back! Will Ferrell’s Bush was CLASSIC. Now add Tina Fey’s Palin… it made our lives, non? Patritised!
My favourite game! Drawing conclusions based on nothing but the analysis of a photo – last night in New York at the Fashion Group International Night of the Stars awards… JLo looking very Maid in Manhattan, sucked in snug and sexy with her Spanx, arriving with her husband Marc Anthony. Check her out, soaking up the spotlight, preening for the cameras. Full Story
A bonus blind riddle for this week. Short and smutty. They’re best friends and they say best friends only… But they sleep in the same bed when they’re on holiday. Duana and I have been sharing a king bed during our European travels but that’s because we’re poor. If we could afford it? Please. Full Story
