As you know, Lynne Spears wrote a tell-all complete with juicy details on Britney’s plummet called Through The Storm: A Real Tale Of Fame And Family In A Tabloid World. Details from her memoirs have now been leaked – nothing that would shock you, all things considered, except the tragic reality that her recollections won’t serve as a valid explanation so much as a roadmap for every other exploitative parent out there who thinks she has a Britney/Miley enrolled in pre-school. Full Story

Whose side are you on? Background: Toby Young’s book How to Lose Friends & Alienate People has been made into a movie starring Simon Pegg and Kirsten Dunst. If you’ve read it, you know Toby. Toby is a tool. Like possibly the most irritating, shameless, embarrassing fool…ever. And not even endearing. Full Story

If motherhood is so rewarding, and what she’s been waiting for her entire life, why is it that there is no evidence of motherhood in her home? Particularly accessories. Pottery Barn doesn’t sell baby bottles. Which could be why she insists on banning them from the house? How does she feed her child when there are no bottles in the house? Well… it’s because she doesn’t feed her child. Full Story

Forgot one thing in the list up above in the opening cut: VMAs, TIFF, Fashion Week…and NFL Week 1. To celebrate the kick-off of the season, Usher, Natasha Bedingfield, and Keith Urban were trotted out for the media yesterday. Really? Usher? But let’s not remind him again that he’s not T. Full Story

The British press are saying her dress was over the top. You? In Venice, like Cannes, there seems to be no limit to the overdress on the carpet. Toronto is a different story – it’ll be unlikely to see something so dramatic. On Anne Hathaway last night at the Rachel Getting Married gala premiere, I don’t know, I kinda liked it. Full Story

Never met a straight dude who didn’t like Entourage. Like it’s a handshake or something. Even if they don’t like it they have to like it. The show’s fifth season begins on Sunday on HBO and on TMN and Movie Central in Canada. Full cast and even Marky Wahlberg turned out on the carpet last night in New York. Full Story

Jennifer Aniston continued to shoot for 30 Rock last night in New York looking healthy and relaxed, glowing on set, clearly reveling in being back on tv. That’s what coming home is all about. Jen plays a stalker on the show – something about being obsessed with Alec Baldwin. Easy, non? Like a continuous transfer: Brad to Angie to John to Alec. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

My mother came to the hotel last night, as she always does when I’m in Toronto, and, as she also always does, brought me a basketful of soup, fruit, juice, and too much of herself. A short visit turned into 90 minutes of ironing and scolding – me for having wrinkly clothes just out of a suitcase and the hotel for providing a sh*tty iron that’s beneath her laundering talents. She’ll be back tonight, using her own key, with her industrial press. Just in time for the start of the festival tomorrow. Joy.

So…did you go back to West Beverly? Thoughts? I’ve yet to see - early reviews have been promising but far from glowing. Only… I hear there was totally not enough Brenda. Unacceptable!

And after a few days in Vegas, Britney Spears returned to LA yesterday – they’ve denied a performance at the VMAs but word on the street is that something Britney is brewing. Keep you posted.

Wednesday – am online all day, check back often.

Yours in gossip,

Lainey
