Dear Gossips,

Tina’s the best but Amy’s the greatest. And the best and greatest were both on SNL this weekend, both brilliantly satirising Sarah Palin. Le sigh….what will Saturday Night Live be without Tina Fey and Amy Poehler in November, even if Kristin Wiig is coming on?

Poehler’s Palin rap was a swan song to remember. If you haven’t had the pleasure, click here. Is it just me or was your smutty sense tingling over the fact that Tina Fey and Sarah Palin did not exchange a word, not even during the finale? Barely shared screen time?

Sorry I’m late. Was in flight all Sunday. Blogging schedule will be different this week as I can never figure out time differences and am in Paris and London on assignment for eTalk, covering the Grey Goose Arbiter of Cool celebration and the Characters and Cocktails fundraiser in London to benefit the Elton John AIDS Foundation.

Best Paris arrival story… we literally walked to the top of our block and ran right into a classic French romantic drama. A lovers quarrel in the middle of the street. She was screaming, sobbing, then threw herself against a wrought iron gate, crumbled to the ground, with her control top hose exposed at her ass, heaving with pain, as he smoked a cigarette, wearing flame hued sneakers, making accusations while she denied them.


Yours in gossip,


PS. Catherine Zeta-Jones isn’t using a lap band  … that I know of.

PPS. How about my dad? He turned 60 last weekend, then ran his third half marathon yesterday finishing at 2 hours 30 minutes – 10 minutes behind his best time but only because his ankle’s been busted all year. No one met him at the finish line though. Why? Because my mother was playing mahjong. What? You expect a Chinese Squawking Chicken to wait among the throngs. Please.

A Loyal Friend

Never, ever understood why she dated him, but totally respect her for staying so tight with him. This is Mandy Moore on Saturday at Friendly House’s awards luncheon with her friend and former boyfriend DJ AM. It was a topic of discussion the other night: what happened to Mandy Moore? Why isn’t she more famous? I argued that it’s because she has no “it”. Full Story

Here’s Nicole Richie after lunch at La Conversation Café the other day. The accessories catch your eye? Well they should have done because she designed them all. The headband, the bangles, the rings – all pieces from her new collection House of Harlow 1960. Will you buy? Photos from Wenn.com  Full Story

Flat boots and pompom hats!

They’re my favourite. Polka dots and pompoms, stripes and pompoms, plain pompoms, I have them all. Pompom hats in the winter are the best and it’s all about flat boots. This is a very smartly dressed Matilda Ledger in Brooklyn the other day going for a walk to the corner café for a coffee (mom) and a bagel (Matilda). Full Story

Seems like Ashlee Simpson has been pregnant forever but she still doesn’t even look that big to me. How much longer? Are we there yet? This is Ashlee leaving after dinner the other night with an expression that a shrew like me can only interpret as: Ugh. Get this thing out of me. My friend DT is due in January with her second. Full Story

Little Sci goes for ice cream

Let’s play Photo Assumption, shall we? Little Sci went for ice cream with her dad the other day and spent the entire time trying to get away from him while he tried in vain to look like the doting-est father in the history of fatherhood…which is a totally baseless assumption, I guess, because it’s not unusual for 2 year olds to get a bit squirmy? That’s what they tell me. Full Story

The Goldigger and Duchovny

Middle aged man, another cliché… It’s one thing to be at the centre of a scandal, but for someone like David Duchovny, to be textbook is almost worse. On the heels of their separation announcement, a separation that occurred well before his stint in rehab for sex addiction, it’s now emerged that David Duchovny was allegedly having an affair with his 28 year old tennis coach. Full Story

Mr and Mrs Beckham found themselves in the same city at the same time on Friday night – it’s been hard for the couple to spend quality time together these days…so they took the opportunity to go out for dinner and get photographed in London. Knowing however that the tabloids have been consumed these days by Madonna’s divorce – the Beckhams made it past the cursed 7 years – Posh pulled out the conversation stoppers, just in case added insurance was required for publication. Full Story

War on Madge

As you know, the Madonna/Guy Ritchie divorce is being played out publicly on an hourly basis in the UK tabloids. Conflicting reports are being released every day – some in favour of Madonna but most in favour of Guy: that she’s a control freak, that there’s no tv allowed at the house, that her family members are only permitted to graze on spelt and flax seed, that she forced the Kab down everyone’s throat…and the list goes on. Full Story
