Dear Gossips,

Finally… last day at TIFF and can’t wait to head home. But not before one last blast – Lindsay Lohan and Samantha Ronson are at Ultra Supper Club tonight together in Toronto. Will there be drama? Let you know Monday.

Mickey Rourke > Brad Pitt?

Details to follow.

And to Gab Free, the party bully, also my girl crush – Girl’s Night was unforgettable. Thank you for approving our invitation… Will you next year?

Have a great weekend!

That squint. Those naughty eyes. Don’t even mind the v neck smarm… This is for Ms E, who always emails mid-quiver at new Ed Westwick photos. Never a better time than on a Friday afternoon with still a long night ahead. Ed was shooting Gossip Girl today in New York as the show’s numbers remain steady while Anorexic 90210 plummeted in week 2. Full Story

I worked out every day during TIFF Wednesday to Sunday and felt like I was going to die. Have not done anything all week. Am happy. Although I'll pay for it when I get back to Hayley my trainer in Vancouver. But this is Madonna today, after a rock out, full energy show, on heels, dancing her tits off at Wembley, dutifully reporting to the gym for her daily workout. Full Story

You’d think that she, of all people, would be more precious with her body. Not only because it’s so beautiful but also because she worked so hard to actually keep it. But behind the face and up the nose, there is a serious, serious problem with blow. It started because she needed to keep her weight down, it has continued because she’s a full blown addict, devoting half her time to so called philanthropy, and the other half to hardcore happy. Full Story

Every year it's like this - so much hype going in surrounding a few projects and what comes out is a dark horse surprise, none more surprising than Mickey Rourke's The Wrestler which has been the talk of TIFF and has placed Mickey in the early lead in the race for Oscar. Yes. Mickey Rourke. His performance is apparently so layered, so moving, and so monumental he's now becoming the new comeback story after Britney Spears. Full Story

It’s over. And like so many who came before him, I am ashamed. Ugh. Every guy I’ve ever dated, with the exception of maybe, like, three – one of whom I married – has been a mistake. Huge mistake. Hate them all. Like revolting. Like I wish I could take it back. And while Michael and I never dated, I do regret now. Full Story

She continues to soldier on – promoting her country album Do You Know at almost every stop in New York. Last night it was Letterman and two wardrobe changes. First a black Herve Leger and peep toe Loubies which she wore on the show and then a long sleeve bore as she was leaving. I like the Herve. Full Story

Madonna played Wembley last night and attracted a rather famous list of ladies to her show including her bestie and mine Gwyneth Paltrow who was seated next to Kate Hudson who happened to be seated next to the divine Marion Cotillard who was just two spots over from Penelope Cruz. On Gwyneth’s other side was a friend she’s taken to the Oscars before – a member of some European royal family. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Last night was one of my TIFF favourites: the Joe Fresh party for Patti Smith’s movie Dream of Life at the Gardiner Museum where she performed for an intimate crowd of 200. Amazing. Like there was a sense, collectively, that these moments are dying, that today’s artists simply can’t and won’t sing live, without a machine warbling their voices and several menacing bodyguards keeping the crowds away.

Can you imagine Vanessa Hudgens doing the same?


Counting down to Saturday – I miss Marcus. Marcus can only beat his bestie Kona to the ball if we give him a pity toss. Like an asshole, when he does win he likes to flaunt and taunt. F*cker.

No one parties hardier than Benicio del Toro.
