Dear Gossips,

Am still fangirling over JK Rowling after watching the 1 hour special last night on ABC chronicling the year of her life before and just after the launch of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Love her SO much.

I understand the doc aired a while ago in the UK. Sigh. We should all live in the UK.

Thanks to YouTube however we can watch without the annoying Elizabeth Vargas voice-overs. I’ve embedded Part 1 below, and from there you can access the rest. Jo is smart and funny and interesting and humble. So humble. Now this is a worthy idol. But I’m still not about to tattoo her initials all over my ankle.

It’s Friday. Am blogging all day with a quick break in between to Studio 4 for a visit with my favourite Fanny Kiefer, and then a weekend of golf and paintball. Oliver’s birthday party, our nephew is 11. Yesterday he was a baby. F-ck I’m old.

No Doubt on Saturday night! See you there? And – fingers crossed – will be in New York again for the early part of next week on another super exciting assignment that I’m afraid to jinx. Positive, positive, positive charms, positive spells…

Have a great weekend!

Yours in gossip,


Jakey’s beefy but not serious

Too muscle man for my taste here…but has the first official photo of Jake Gyllenhaal in Prince of Persia, Disney’s highly anticipated big blockbuster next summer – by the time it’s released in 2010 it’ll be 2 years since filming. Full Story

With your short salt and pepper hair, and even though it’s bad, so bad, so unhealthy, I’d be lying if I didn’t think that ciggie hanging out of your mouth is sexy as f-ck. Because you are sexy as f-ck. And here you are in London, shooting London Boulevard, with Ray Winstone, who I ran into last year at the Carleton in Cannes with my broken arm and the first thing he said to me was – were you drunk!?!? Because this is what every British person asked me and I’m telling you this because I’m twisted enough to think that maybe if you knew I’ve had a half conversation with your co-star you might want to have a half conversation with me too. Full Story

Man hugs

I love it when men hug in soccer. In Europe they always hug and rub each other on the head. Very erotic. Last year I wrote about Becks & Iker: A Love Story. Some of the best photos ever taken. Click here to see. Full Story

Shrek Diesel DVD

Already? Didn’t seem like that took very long. Fast & Furious is now on DVD if you like that sort of thing – dumbasses not obeying the speed limit led by a grunting Shrek with big muscles also known as Vin Diesel. Ugh. He’s disgusting. Shrek showed up on the carpet last night because the event was also an opportunity to screen his short film Los Bandoleros. Full Story

Sookie in New York

Emmy ignored True Blood. So it’s my duty to remind you that a new episode will air on HBO and HBO Canada on Sunday. My husband asked me yesterday: is there sex, are there breasts? It’s all he needs to know. And the answer is yes and yes. Oh and it’s funny as sh-t. Here’s Anna Paquin in New York – last night at Letterman in a black dress and today on Regis & Kelly. Full Story

July 17, 2009 – Smutty Shout-Outs

To Nora – happy birthday! And enjoy your secret weekend. I would give you a hint but Tash and your boyfriend will kill me! To my friend Kelsey - when your other friends aren't there for you, I am and so is the smut. Love, Dani  Full Story

Dear Gossips,

I’ve watched the Whip It trailer 3 times since last night. Love it so much. Scroll down or click here to catch up on the late post. Finally some Ellen Page. Yay!

As for Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince - $22 million grossed from the midnight showings alone, surpassing TDK’s record last year. You have your tickets for the weekend, right? Little Harry’s box office is very, very big. And it looks like Warner Bros decision to push back the film to the summer was, in the end, the right one.

But please don’t do that with Deathly Hallows 7A. Right now it’s November 2010, far enough away as it is.

So have you seen HP6 yet? Please continue to send your thoughts. And if you skipped it on Monday, my thoughts were posted here.

It’s Thursday. Am blogging all day. Waiting for golf tomorrow and hoping for good weather through the weekend. We’re celebrating our nephew’s birthday playing paintball. Does it hurt?

Ryan's summer hair

These are file photos of Ryan Gosling from around the same time last year in Washington at the American Progress' national conference. He’d buzzed off his hair. And he’s buzzed it off again. Click here to see Full Story
