The new 90210 will premiere on September 2nd. You may recognise one of the stars of the show Shenae Grimes from Degrassi. Or not. Because Degrassi is enjoyed by millions and egregiously unrecognised in Canada. Here are Shenae and Jessica Stroup shooting scenes at The Komoko, location for the Peach Pit. Full Story

Back in 2004 when she was still cute and not yet anorexic or a junkie but well on her way, Michael Phelps was asked about a celebrity crush. He answered Lindsay Lohan. These days, his celebrity crush is Cameron Diaz. Unfortunately, Lilo won’t let him go. Lilo was texting Billy Bush (???) the other day during Access Hollywood’s interview with Michael’s mom Debbie Phelps. Full Story

Sorry… interrupting gossip for an Olympic moment. Because we just watched the 200m live – SPOILER AHEAD – and Usain Bolt is sick. Sick. Is there any man more aptly named? Usain Bolt just won gold in the 200m setting a new world record in the event which means he is the FIRST MAN IN THE HISTORY OF THE OLYMPIC GAMES to own world records in both the 100m and the 200m. Full Story

The manliest elf in Hollywood booted around New York yesterday on his bike, dropping off girlfriend and model Miranda Kerr. But In Touch reported that she and Orlando Bloom were bust? As usual, In Touch is full of ass. Clearly, Orly and Miranda are fine. And still all over each other in public too.  Full Story

The Gossip Boys shooting in New York yesterday – Chace Crawford, his hair meticulously tousled just so wearing green and navy stripes and a denim wash that only the very rich or the very low classy seem to prefer (why is that you think?) alongside Chuck Bass in a cardigan dotted with what looks like, to me anyway, little flags with arrows that point to a pompous douche. Full Story

He’s a nice kid. He works hard, he has great manners, he’s intelligent, he seems sweet…but he does have that baby face. And a baby face on a 19 year old boy trying to be a man is regarded as a curse. Which is probably why he’s trying out the facial hair. Problem is… Daniel Radcliffe is follicularly challenged. Full Story

As I reported exclusively yesterday - Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling are back together. Monday night it was dinner in Toronto. Tuesday they ran errands in Yorkville, seen at the Manulife Centre, strolling hand in hand on Avenue Road, and at one point smiling broadly as they ducked into a store. Full Story

Happy 33rd Birthday Jill with love from Lauren. Moisturisers and marathons? Much better than Botox. You should share that with Granny Freeze! Congrats to KirstO on your big engagement from LindO. To Meghan – Happy 29th Birthday! How was Thom Yorke last night?  Full Story

Dear Gossips,

“Am I need to say something? How beautiful am I?”

Yelena Isinbayeva last night on NBC’s Olympic coverage. Amazing. Finally a Russian diva to entertain at the Games. No one does drama like a Russian diva. Just ask Svetlana Khorkina. Watching Yelena own that Bird’s Nest last night, prancing around the track like some kind of Jolie scripting her own film… it was the best thing ever. Love, love, love, LOVE her.

And also Canada’s Ian Millar, 9 time Olympian, 61 years old, who brought home silver for Canada and dedicated it to his late wife. He lost her in March. Ian is headed to London in 2012.

Freebie Five is screwed up. Will fix soon.

Tuesday – am online all day, refresh often!

Yours in gossip,

Lainey
