Anne Hathaway made the cover of People last week – the Princess and the Con Man, describing how Anne was duped by that shady boyfriend she recently broke up with. The one who kept writing bad cheques and stealing money. Anne and her Get Smart (the movie that beat Mike Myers in the ass!) co-stars were in Rome yesterday to promote the film and she was asked by an intrepid journalist, “Was the separation from your ex-boyfriend painful?" It was an awkward moment – she wasn’t angry but she was very uncomfortable, until Steve Carell jumped in to rescue Full Story

Just a quick note about the smuggling food challenge I posted in the Halle Berry article. Many of you have come with very admirable accomplishments. A plate of spaghetti is most memorable so far. Full Story

This is why Ed Westwick has to get out before dawn. And he can’t meet my friends. He can totally come back when they leave, but when he does leave the shame will roll in like crashing waves before a storm. Relentless and consistent, one embarrassing memory after another flooding the conscience. Full Story

Peeing Douchebag talking to me?

Inbox flooded this morning from those of you who attended the John Mayer concert in Toronto last night where he addressed the “sh*t talking” he gets from the media, specifically mentioning that he’s consistently referred to as a “douchebag” and even that little urination fetish I’ve been smutting about for ages. Full Story

Stand by the Madge

My Gwyneth, followed by baby David Banda and his nanny, showed up yesterday at Madonna’s apartment for a visit and some girl support. Maybe even a tongue kiss. According to the tell-all being peddled by her brother, Madge and Gwyneth necked one night in front of a roomful of people at a party. Big f&cking deal! Tell us whether or not Sean Penn really tied her to a chair for 12 hours! Anyway, am told pap-shy G’s appearance yesterday at that time was deliberate, giving photographers the best light and maximising coverage of her arrival – friends don’t let friends get accused of homewreckery without standing in solidarity. Full Story

Drew Barrymore is single again. And if you’ve charted Drew’s romantic resumé over the years, this is not a surprise. Drew finds love often…but it’s not often lasting. So she and Justin Long are no more – confirmed by her rep. Of course they’re still friends. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Please would you indulge me a moment? Because I did it.

6 weeks ago I broke my arm. And still my incomparable trainer Hayley McGowan would not let me use the gimpy-ness to get out of Seek the Peak.

So I "seeked" the peak. And it was a bitch. From the beach to the top of a mountain, 16km and 4100 ft of elevation, I stank in ways I never thought possible. At one point there were six cramps pulsing in each buttock at the same time. But Hayley pushed me through. As did the sight of the 70 year old man who blew past us right before we reached the summit. And my good friend Kiu too who signed up in solidarity, just because.

So I can"t walk today. But I can blog.

First Euro, now Rafa owns Wimbledon. Nadal vs Casillas - who"s in your fantasy bedroom? He looked cute in his tux at the Wimbledon ball, non? As I said a couple of weeks ago, I am a Rafa.

Hola España!

Spain is all the rage. By the way - did you know my Gwyneth spent summers in Spain, did a tour of Spain last summer with Mario Batali, and speaks Spanish?

Of course she does.

It was an epic match on what felt like an epic weekend that started off with George Michael in Vancouver. The old girl still has it! My main gay Darren and I, we had the best time, dancing in the aisles for two and a half hours, and then it was off to Stanley Park to see if Georgey might drop in for a late night pick up. Didn’t see him. Maybe he finally bought a computer, discovered the modernity of a chat room to spice up his sex life.

It’s Monday, am blogging all day, refresh often!

Yours in gossip,


PS. Kevin Costner does not have another woman.

PPS. Ed Westwick is not one of the boys.
