Young, Hot, Single, Friends

Manslinger Kate Hudson last night giggling on the carpet with her good friend Liv Tyler – both single, both young, both hot, and clearly ready to party at the Burberry opening in Beverly Hills. Love. After a rough year and some suspicious weight loss too, Liv looks amazing. And healthy. And am all over what she’s wearing. Full Story

Lara messaged me last night during Gossip Girl – apparently another wildly satisfying episode. GG is like porn for her. And nothing turns us on more than Blair and Chuck cruel intention-ing each other to the point of blue ball frustration. Gah! Can’t watch til Sunday! In the meantime, will just have to enjoy (shamefully) these new photos of Ed Westwick on set wearing a sequined tuxedo jacket which is actually less ridiculous than Ed Westwick in jeans tucked into his boots. Full Story

The GMD and Robo attended a private party last night at the Hermes store in New York similarly dressed, both sexless and devoid of personality. They did however take the opportunity to show off their one tired move: the Presentation. If he wasn’t so hellbent on suppressing his gay, he’d be able to find a little more creativity. Full Story

Man Influential

Askmen.com has just released its annual list of Top 40 Most Influential Men as voted by men themselves. The #1 spot isn’t much of a surprise and a huge boost for Michael Phelps at #3 is a nod to his determination and subsequent historic accomplishments but… Cristiano Ronaldo? At #9? Really? The dude who rolls with eurocheese? Cristiano Ronaldo ahead of Usain Bolt who came in at only #21??? Men… please! Big love for RDJ who’s ranked #4. Full Story

A rare, modern Keira

Speaking of Keira Knightley the Russian favourite – here she is on set in New York filming a movie called Last Night. It’s almost always period pieces for young KK, she has acknowledged it herself, so it must be a treat to work on something contemporary for a change. Perhaps this is why she’s actually looks jovial here, gamely showing off her razor blade teeth. Full Story

My Gwyneth dragged her skinny sanctimonious little ass out in the rain last night to promote her new film Two Lovers at the London Film Festival again without Joaquin Phoenix who hasn’t been seen in ages and no one seems to want to talk about it. Oh it’s tingling alright. But since this happened Full Story

Becoming mainstream?

It’s no secret in smutty circles – the suggestion has been swirling for years undercover but as is the case with stars of his stature, no one wants to take the risk of openly challenging his alleged heterosexuality. Like his good friend the GMD however, some secrets cannot be stifled. Will Smith is gay??? Shocker, right? You mean it’s not Jada in his trailer? Please. Full Story

October 21, 2008 – Smutty Shout-Outs

All the best to Diva Q, competing at the Jack Daniels Invitational – the most prestigious BBQ competition in the world! Yes… girls can grill too! Have fun in Georgia and please do kick ass. Happy Birthday Judith N! Heard you’re Canada’s answer to Fiona Shackleton? Amazing. And Madonna needs you. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Tina’s the best but Amy’s the greatest. And the best and greatest were both on SNL this weekend, both brilliantly satirising Sarah Palin. Le sigh….what will Saturday Night Live be without Tina Fey and Amy Poehler in November, even if Kristin Wiig is coming on?

Poehler’s Palin rap was a swan song to remember. If you haven’t had the pleasure, click here. Is it just me or was your smutty sense tingling over the fact that Tina Fey and Sarah Palin did not exchange a word, not even during the finale? Barely shared screen time?

Sorry I’m late. Was in flight all Sunday. Blogging schedule will be different this week as I can never figure out time differences and am in Paris and London on assignment for eTalk, covering the Grey Goose Arbiter of Cool celebration and the Characters and Cocktails fundraiser in London to benefit the Elton John AIDS Foundation.

Best Paris arrival story… we literally walked to the top of our block and ran right into a classic French romantic drama. A lovers quarrel in the middle of the street. She was screaming, sobbing, then threw herself against a wrought iron gate, crumbled to the ground, with her control top hose exposed at her ass, heaving with pain, as he smoked a cigarette, wearing flame hued sneakers, making accusations while she denied them.

Amazing.

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

PS. Catherine Zeta-Jones isn’t using a lap band  … that I know of.

PPS. How about my dad? He turned 60 last weekend, then ran his third half marathon yesterday finishing at 2 hours 30 minutes – 10 minutes behind his best time but only because his ankle’s been busted all year. No one met him at the finish line though. Why? Because my mother was playing mahjong. What? You expect a Chinese Squawking Chicken to wait among the throngs. Please.

A Loyal Friend

Never, ever understood why she dated him, but totally respect her for staying so tight with him. This is Mandy Moore on Saturday at Friendly House’s awards luncheon with her friend and former boyfriend DJ AM. It was a topic of discussion the other night: what happened to Mandy Moore? Why isn’t she more famous? I argued that it’s because she has no “it”. Full Story
