Are very well trained. In the art of media manipulation and pimping their employer out as a desirable woman. Oh Jennifer Aniston. All those self help books and still the desperation gives her no peace. To the point now that she’s resorting to letting her security team work her PR. According to X17 Full Story

At the Sex & the City DVD launch party last week – three girls showed up, one was missing… The official reason for Kristin Davis’s absence was that she was working, something about shooting a commercial. And here’s what’s being offered at the other end of the smutty buffet: Rumour has it, Kristin bailed because she supposedly demanded a $100K appearance fee from Warner Bros and was rejected. Full Story

Kevin Bacon is 50. And he and Kyra Sedgwick have been married for 20 years. Amazing. And still going strong. They don’t whore out their relationship, they remain relatively private, I have no idea what their children look like, and I can’t recall off the top of my head where they last went on family holiday. Full Story

Had dinner with the girls recently… Julie is pregnant, Erin is a doula, and she suggested that before the baby comes, we all get together for some kind of chick bond. Something about feeling and sharing. I asked her if she wanted me to bring my spirit drum to ring in the joy, to help us dance around like no one’s watching. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Emmy night. Jeremy Piven said it best: the 5 host format sucked large ass sh*t. I spent the first 10 minutes hating Howie Mandel. Howie can’t not talk over everyone.

Of course the only contribution Heidi Klum could manage was to strip off her tuxedo. Thankfully the Klum was balanced out perfectly and immediately by Tina and Amy, the best of women in showbiz.

It’ll be a long, long column today. New posts fast and furious with an Emmy wrap and catching up on weekend gossip that includes the GMD’s curious NY whereabouts with an appearance by his white wedges! Oh, and some new Christian Bale photos – JS, it’s for you!

Check back often!

Yours in gossip,


PS. Justin Timberlake does not demand the star treatment. Neither does Tom Cruise.

PPS. Catherine Zeta Jones does not need anger management.

PPPS. Many thanks for your encouragement during those sleepless TIFF nights.

Minka Kelly once dated Taylor Kitsch – first season of Friday Night Lights. It’s hard to follow up on Taylor Kitsch. And her subsequent romance with John Mayer failed in that regard. Happily their hook up was shortlived. And like Jessica Simpson before her, Minka too has found herself a athletic upgrade even MORE impressive than Porny’s. Full Story

SNL’s mistake was giving him too much to say. The key to Michael Phelps is to shut his mouth, take off his clothes, and focus on everything below the head. The Emmy pre-show hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, learning from Lorne’s mistakes, did just that, using the Olympian wisely, leaving the talking to the professionals and finally forcing him to not wear flipflops for a change. Full Story

Catherine Zeta Jones is. Hate to be bitch (actually no I don’t) but if I looked like CZJ, it would greatly distress me every night to have my supple body, that classic face, those pouty lips tied to this for the rest of his life. I know love is more than skin and bones…but can love make lust for skin and bones? This is Michael Douglas, thin skin and oldy bones in New York for the ringing of the Peace Bell at the UN on Friday. Full Story

Gwen Appropriate

Gwen Stefani is a clothes horse. A fashion plate. A style maverick. But only on her own days. In other words – the anti Posh. Gwen and Gavin Rossdale went to a wedding this weekend. Instead of trying to outshine the bride in an extravagant gown that would have been the Mrs Beckham signature move, Gwen wore black and heels and respected the occasion, hanging back with the ladies, not making a spectacle of herself in the middle of the lawn with a wind machine she brought from home…. Full Story

Of course she does. She’s perfect, didn’t you know? And she speaks Spanish, some Italian, can do a brilliant British accent, is adored by Sir Anthony Hopkins, and Steven Spielberg, and Jay Z, and Madonna, and European royalty…but she’s still tight with her high school friends too. Full Story
