Not even divorce…

Can stop the show. While others would have cancelled citing a variety of excuses, like feeling fat, or migraines, or fried chicken laziness, Madonna took it back to the stage last night in Boston, her infamous emotional fortitude not shaken by divorce - a true, driven, control freak professional to the very end. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

We raised $4,000 for Raising Malawi last night – a small group of hardcore Madge fans, gathered in a large theatre that felt like our living room, remembering Blonde Ambition, celebrating Madonna on the big screen, and hopefully helping more little David Bandas…so intimate, I wish it could be every night.

I hadn’t seen it in a long while, Truth or Dare. And certainly not through 35 year old eyes. She was so much less…clenched… back then. And funny! And … free? Duana and I drove home singing Cherish together. Belting at the top of our lungs! For no particular reason, it’s not like it was playing on the radio or anything, but just because after all these years, it’s still a f&cking wicked song. I miss her wicked songs.

Now I’m waxing too deep. This, after all, is a gossip column.

And even last night, during the screening, Madonna gossip was breaking…

More on that later.

Thanks SO much for all who came, all who assisted, and to the extraordinary Iain Christiansen who did everything and who might still love me even though I did nothing. Our French kiss …yum!

Wednesday – blogging on the fly, headed for home. And there’s a new riddle too.

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

A couple of years ago, I was the first to write about the celebrity IV diet – many of them would admit themselves to hospital under the care of a proper physician for 10 days, 2 weeks or so, eliminating food in favour of an IV drip chock full of essentials to keep one alive while starving.

Split Speculation

They say there's a 7 year curse. Madonna and Guy couldn't get past 7. I'm arriving at 7 on November 2nd. Scary. Anyway, already rumours are swirling about the split. And Jennifer Aniston is right pissed that yet again, someone else is usurping her John Mayer thunder. Buzz is that Madge and Guy had worked this out long ago - that they would promote themselves, their marriage, stay in tact through the promotion of her tour and RocknRolla, and secure him the directorial position for Sherlock Holmes, in addition to the budget. Full Story

This is Marion Cotillard leaving Cipriani in London last night where she’s been working on Nine alongside Kate Hudson, Pene Cruz, Fergie, and of course, Granny Freeze Nicole Kidman, among others. Word is this may not be Marion’s only project with the Gran. The two could potentially work together again on a Steven Spielberg production called The Rivals about actresses Sarah Bernhardt and Eleonora Duse. Full Story

Taking out Tallulah Belle

Demi and Ashton took brought their youngest with them last night onto the carpet at the Glamour Reel Moments event and Tallulah Belle showed off her Louboutins. TB is 14. Bet your Botox she has more pairs than you do. Credit to the Willis/Kutchers though, at least Tallulah still looks like a teen. She has that awkward gangly vibe about her and the expression on her face – trying so hard to be older but only succeeding in looking younger – TB’s attempt at “sexy” actually brings out her remaining innocence, unlike that old hag Ali Lohan with “experience” written all over her 35 year old face. Full Story

Courteney Cox and Demi Moore posing together at the Glamour Reel Moments event last night. Courteney is 44, Demi is 46, Courteney “claimed” recently she’s only tried Botox once and hated it and Demi…well, Demi is a mystery because the work is just so good and subtle but we all just know, right? We all just know. Full Story
