Dear Gossips,

Was so nervous last night I couldn’t breathe. Then as soon as I stepped out onto the runway I saw her – my Chinese Squawking Mother, because she was dressed in red in the front row and couldn’t be missed – and then everything was ok. Am a 35 year old woman who still needs her mommy. She planned it this way.

The best though is that Duana and Michelle accepted the assignment to babysit. They now have stories of their own, and the experience was apparently so memorable, they’re considering starting a blog about it: On Squawking Chicken Duty.

The Heart Truth Red Dress Fashion Show was a standing room only event. Heart disease and stroke are the leading causes of death for Canadian women but most don’t know it. Although it’s traditionally perceived to be, it’s actually not a “man’s problem” and in fact, women are more likely than men to die of a heart attack or stroke. Please click here for more information.

Photos from the show haven’t arrived yet. Will post when they’re ready.

Wednesday – Madge and GP out together, identifying the Wolf Pack, and more smut all day.

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

PS. Ate fish & chips at midnight, woke up at 7am this morning and warmed up some fried rice. Today will be a good day.

PPS. Smack no kids is not James McAvoy and Anne-Marie Duff. Also not Taye Diggs and Idina Menzel.

Rossum FAIL

Her publicists must have begged for this. BEGGED. Because selling Rossum off as sexy is not just a stretch, it’s a tragic leap into a bottomless canyon. Dumb. This is Rossum in the new issue of Details playing off that old fantasy – good girl who’s a vixen in the bedroom. Please. There is no vixen in Rossum’s bedroom. Full Story

Country Bitch through security

Lainey Posted by Lainey at March 18, 2009 15:32:07 March 18, 2009 15:32:07

If I ever went through airport screening with my shades on, some security bitch would have my ass on the ground with my knees behind my back faster than you can say Carrie Underwood has an attitude problem. Celebrities have it so easy. Carrie Underwood absolutely can’t go through security without her sunglasses on, hell no. Full Story

Let your heart bleed for Posh

Becks dressed up for a night on the town at a charity benefit the other night with no date. As such, they all came roaring. Surrounded by lascivious ladies licking their lips at the prospect, the possibility of one night with a man who has strayed before… And worse still, he looks like he’s enjoying himself. Full Story

Pitt & Portman!

Variety is reporting that Brad Pitt and Natalie Portman will star together in a film called Artifacts – a romantic comedy! Finally! Too many serious movies. I could handle some Pitt in a lighter setting. Full Story

Back from a break

And we needed one from her, non? I did. Anne Hathaway was front and centre all through awards season. After Oscar she disappeared for a few weeks, resurfacing last night at the Valentino event, seated on the other side of the designer who – photo assumption! – seemed to be more interested in what Gwyneth and Madonna had to say. Full Story

MOW Romance

Today’s LeAnn Rimes/Eddie Cibrian Movie of the Week on set affair reminded Michelle about another MOW romance… What is it with the cheese tv weekly movie? Breeding ground for infidelity? Tori Spelling and Kevin Federline Jr met on the set of some sh-t called Mind Over Murder. They were both married to other people at the time…just like LeAnn and Eddie. Full Story

Naming the Wolves

Posted the first photos yesterday of Jacob and his pack. You Twilight fans have been emailing about names and characters. This morning’s fried rice is making me nice. So today, exclusively, here’s how the wolves break down: Taylor Lautner: Jacob Black Chaske Spencer: Sam Uley Tyson Houseman: Quil Ateara Alex Meraz: Paul Kiowa Gordon: Embry Call Bronson Pelletier: Jared Tinsel Korey: Emily Also… my favourite hate mail from yesterday. Full Story

High School Theatre

It’s so layered. And our tangential obsession this week was Brody Jenner’s (the director) cameo appearance. Right? So yeah, not the strongest episode. But the very end, the very end is very, very promising. Turning a corner for Springtime, hopefully… Chuck’s face said it all. Full Story

Bond’s jaunty hat

Lainey Posted by Lainey at March 18, 2009 07:44:31 March 18, 2009 07:44:31

This is for my good friend who shall remain nameless. Up until a few months ago, her lust was all about Daniel Craig. She, like me, is an anglophile. She has loved Daniel since his Bond confirmation. When I used to tease her about his Asian preference, threatening to move in there in Cannes or wherever, she’d always hiss at me and stick her finger in my arm: I will cut you! But it’s been a long time since Daniel has been top of loin. Full Story
