It’s Beyonce, of course, and this is the title of her new double album: The first: I Am… The second: Sasha Fierce. Sasha of course is what she calls her alter ego, the gyrating performer who is released on stage. In private, Sasha retreats and cedes the spotlight to B who, apparently, is much more sedate and doesn’t talk about herself in the third person. Full Story
Whitney Port is getting her own “reality” spin-off. She moves to New York, she gets a “job”, there’s boy drama… and all the activity happens AROUND her instead of ABOUT her. At least that’s what it looks like from the new trailer. Whitney stands around with her mouth open while other people live their lives. Full Story
Duana: So the idea that we Canadian folks are supposed to be the tough ones who can handle cold is a myth. Because I have seen British girls out on the town. I walked past a club yesterday, freezing, clad in boots and scarf and full-on coat – and stared at the party girls blithely strolling around in backless tops and microminis. Full Story
Not that this should be any surprise but the golddigging famewhoring KFed Jr is apparently addicted to reading about himself on the blogs. My blog! Thanks to all of you who emailed after seeing him being interviewed last night on E!'s Daily Ten - he actually REFERRED to the fact that his real name is KFed Jr and that "someone" started calling him that soon after he managed to swindle that hag and her bank account into marrying him.

To Tricia – sorry about your sucky week and missing Madonna. As for cheering you up with sexy boys… not sure about you but I’m partial to Steve Yzerman, recently named Executive Director for Team Canada 2010 going for Olympic gold at home and one of the nicest people in hockey, to say nothing for the hotness.

We had dinner last night at the Jules Verne. This, of course, is where the GMD proposed to Katie Holmes. Our sommelier, a lovely man called Roberto, showed us where it actually happened – like the exact spot. Thought you might want to see?
As it happens, Roberto bore a striking resemblance to Tom Cruise, and since Renata* at 5 ft 11 stood inches taller, we decided to reenact the moment to further enhance the description.
Here they are, at the Eiffel Tower, with the Parisian night lights twinkling in the background, and Xenu shining his light in approval...that’s how it happened.
It’s a travel day today en route to London. Am also tied up with shoots for part of the day and am sorry for the wonky sched. Duana will be pinch hitting a little to make up for it and to try and numb the memory of walking away from Chanel this morning right before we left. She and I fell in love with a pair of tights. The most amazing tights. Full black in back, full nude in front. But also 300 Euros. So like US$400.
We almost did but we didn’t.
Yours in gossip,
PS. SJP chose body over face but not body over baby. It’s not Kelly Ripa either.
*Renata Clingen, the renowned bartender at The Rushton in Toronto, is the Canadian winner of the Grey Goose Arbiter of Cool competition whose signature martini will be featured at the Characters & Cocktails event tonight in support of the Elton John AIDS Foundation! British celebrities sipping maple syrup!
If she’s really sick…my bad and I won’t speak of the sad smut. But this is Hollywood. And she’s a child star. And she parades around on the red carpet desperating herself into stardom. Right now it’s open season. Especially since her rep AND THE DOCTOR had to issue a pre-emptive strike about her “near fatal condition”. Full Story
But not close enough. This is for Laura – we miss you! And this is for you – Colin Firth tonight here at the London Film Festival screening of Genova. We were hoping he’d show up later at the Grey Goose Characters & Cocktails party but the best we had was some British race car driver called Jensen Button who sucks sh-t right now … Does it matter? Look at him. Full Story
Girl sh-t is the best sh-t, right? It's even worse in Hollywood, especially when so many of them are fighting for everything: headlines, attention, and ultimately the work. This is about the work. And the power plays they pull to get the work over their competitors. Bitch #1 has been backstabbing for a while starting a few years ago when she was vying over a then-coveted role in a major blockbuster with lucrative potential. Full Story
