Where was Cate?

Many of you wrote during awards season – Where’s Cate Blanchett? She is an awards season staple. It was weird not to see her. But she received no nominations. And Brad Pitt alone was enough to promote Benjamin Button is Boring. Besides, Cate had better things to do. As the co-artistic director of the Sydney Theatre Company alongside her husband, Cate stayed home to rehearse. Full Story

After appearances promoting Marley in Paris and Rome, Jennifer Aniston and Owen Wilson were in Germany on Saturday, first at a photo call and then on the show Wetten Dass where Jen showed off those fabulous at 40!!!!! legs in a short white pouffy skirt under a well cut jacket teetering on a pair of hot heels. Full Story

Life is Breezy

As you’ve heard, Rihanna and Chris Brown are back together, staying at Diddy’s mansion in Miami. I have not written about Rihanna because it’s sad smut. Still sad smut. What happened to her is heartbreaking. Her choices are heartbreaking. And while I may not agree with them, at all, at the same time, in my opinion, she doesn’t deserve the scorn. Full Story

Dear Gossip,

I was up a little last night at the blackjack table until some idiot sat down and started staying on 15 against face and hitting on 14 against 3. As far as I’m concerned, this is like someone coming into your house and chewing with their mouth open at the dinner table. Wrong.

Still…there’s nothing better than waking up and knowing a casino is just below you. And, while I don’t play the slots, hearing the ping ping ping of the machines as the elevator opens is like an angel’s harp to my ears. LOVE Vegas.

Finally, it’s Friday! New articles all day and then I go back to work at the Wynn…or maybe we should hit up a skeezier joint? At least degenerates know how to gamble. Besides, I’d be with my people.

Have a great weekend!

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

PS. Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez are not anorexic.

Flying solo…and commercial?

Brad Pitt at JFK today heading out alone…somewhere. And flying commercial? Not sure but he would not have been so easily photographed if he was using the private jet. As you know, it’s the Brange’s usual travel choice. So anyway, my husband needs a new suit. He has, like, the WORST WORST WORST style EVER. Full Story

Overheard in my inbox

My mail just started downloading. Maybe because it’s Friday and we’re all a little silly but there have been some exceptionally funny messages today. Thought I’d share a few and since you love them, will include the best hate ones too. As you’d expect, they come from the Holy Trinity of Crazy Fan Groups: Brangelunatics, Aniston freaks, and Twi-hard losers. Full Story

Back to black and Vanna White

Lainey Posted by Lainey at February 27, 2009 11:33:39 February 27, 2009 11:33:39

Seriously – it was like this yesterday too – why is she constantly Vanna White-ing all over Owen Wilson? It’s weird, right? The way her hand is displaying him like a vowel? Anyway, this is Jennifer Aniston today at the Rome photo call for Marley & Me back to basic black and boring sh-t, a far cry from the refreshingly vibrant appearance she turned in yesterday at the Paris promotional stop in Balenciaga and Loubs. Full Story

As reported yesterday, Jeremy Piven was in New York for a hearing where he was expected to defend himself against a grievance filed by the producers of Speed-the-Plow alleging that he bailed out on the production not because of mercury poisoning but because he was bored and partying too hard. Piven spoke about his illness in front of a panel of ten consisting of 5 actors and 5 producers. Full Story

My webmail has been down for 3 hours. Haven’t been able to access email. I feel like I’ve been abandoned in the middle of the ocean. Will Twitter make me feel better?

Shelfy comes rushing in? Cameron Diaz was photographed happy and lovely yesterday in New York heading to a meeting – regardless what you think of them, Cammie D (unlike Jessica Biel) makes movies that actually get released in theatres! – just a few days before appearing on Jimmy Fallon’s first week at Late Night. Full Story
