Thank you for all of your emails re: Shenae Grimes at the Gemini Awards, all of you with remarks similar to the following: From Thomas T: Did you happen to see Shenae Grimes appearance at the Geminis? The poor girl definitely appeared to be more wired than a renovation done by Mike Holmes. She was practically vibrating. Full Story
Taylor Kitsch came home to Canada on Friday for the Gemini Awards honouring achievements in Canadian television. Yay Project Runway Canada!!! About Taylor – here he is all cleaned up, looking slightly bewildered and uncomfortable, and completely unprepared for what’s about to hit him come Spring. Full Story
Saturday night on X Factor – no variation on the routine, same sh-tty lipsynching, same lame choreography, and still technically inferior but the energy…there was a certain energy, an energy that has been building from Berlin to Paris and then London, an energy that comes from comfort perhaps, from owning a stage again, electrifying a crowd… She’s not there yet but it’s coming. Full Story
To Sharon – congratulations on surviving your visit to Chibougamau! Children and flu and 8 hours of driving… you are a great friend to Mandy who appreciates your sacrifice! And for Carla who was not only front row Friday night at the John Legend show in Toronto but pulled up onstage by the man himself for a dirty dance! Full Story
Wildly mixed reviews for Australia including enthusiastic praise from Roger Ebert and Variety, the Hollywood Reporter and the New York Times and on the other side, enthusiastic dislike from Entertainment Weekly, Rolling Stone, and USA Today. Needless to say, the critical dissention isn’t helping the movie at all.
Australia looks to be a flop in America, perhaps even around the world. At this point, it might even drop out of contention from the Oscar race which, actually, is kinda too bad.
Love Baz Luhrmann. Love the campy, overthetopness of a Baz Luhrmann feature. Australia is supposed to be campy and overthetop like that. In a sense then, that might work in Granny Freeze’s favour, like taking extremes to the next level. Will see Australia this weekend. Will you? Or will you be with the fangirls and fanmoms seeing Twilight for the 5th time. Don’t lie. I know you are.
Friday – am blogging all day until the radio. Am guesting on CBC On The Coast for three long hours (!) from 3pm to 6pm PT today. If you want to stream live, click here and choose “pacific”.
Have a great weekend!
Yours in gossip,
The most epic Would You Rather ever. Trust Hello Kitty to hire Emmy sodding Rossum to sell coffee. Of course. Only in Asia where they raise their girls as emotionally stunted stuffed toys could the Rossum be considered a pitch person. I’m sorry to start your weekend off this way. Truly I am. Because upon watching this you will, pardon the crass, feel anal raped by sugar. Full Story
She performed in Paris today, for a much more enthusiastic audience than the stodgy Germans in Berlin and the result was a major improvement. Britney’s finding her comfort level. She looked happy. She looked hype. She still can’t lipsynch for sh-t and the same routine offered the same boring choreography, and she’s obviously not the most articulate piece of fried chicken but still… It’s getting better and tomorrow night it’s X Factor and next week it’s America.

Kingston Rossdale doesn’t get enough love here. I’m sorry for that. He deserves it. Because he just might be cuter than them all. Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale took their boys to the park yesterday for some family time. 3 month old Zuma looks like he’s chubbing out and nestled happily with mom on the bench while his brother romped around in an adorable pair of patchy jeans under a red striped shirt.

Those Jonas Brothers were on Good Morning America today donating their coats and a $10K cheque. Ummm…that’s it? $10K is a lot of money for us. $10K is chump change for them. $10K is how much they spend on styling products. For real. And the cost is clear. Not one hair out of place on all three of them. Full Story
Now that his gag order has been temporarily lifted, in New York this week without Jennifer Aniston, John Mayer is back to doing what he does best: feeding his attention addiction, talking out of his ass. I’ll say this: he is entertaining. Douche was surrounded by paps and fans yesterday, signing photos, taking photos, even some cute bantering with a little old lady who didn’t have a clue about him but pleaded for an autograph anyway.

Some dumbass tabloid (probably Star Magazine) tried to make-a-story a couple of weeks ago, suggesting that Diane Kruger and Brad Pitt, working together on Inglorious Basterds, were having an affair. Obviously the story did not stick. As you know, Diane has been seriously involved the irresistibly adorable Joshua Jackson for 2 years and they now share a home in New York. Full Story
