Cam manslung her way through John last year while Jen hired Paul Sculfor to pretend to be her boyfriend and sell Smart Water. As you know, the two swapped beaus. Clearly Cam came out ahead. She and Paul are apparently still together, spotted in the Maldives Full Story

Brenda Walsh, that is. The CW celebrated the return of 90210 the other night and no one else mattered. Because Shannen Doherty showed up on the carpet. And even though she burned her skin in the sun, even though the lines on her forehead and around her eyes are deeper than before, even though it’s loose around chin and neck, those Brenda Walsh legs live on. Full Story

It makes my life: seeing the GMD “present” his Robo. And it’s even more welcome since it’s been so long - months maybe since we’ve seen the Presentation: he holding her hand ceremoniously, a princess introducing his well-trained princess to a hungry public, this time in matching black and shades. Full Story

Madonna opened Sticky & Sweet in Cardiff the other night and by all accounts did not disappoint. Even if she was 90 minutes late. Please. You expected her to care about your schedule??? The costumes and the choreography – “breathtaking”. The visual effects – state of the art. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Olympic Freebie Five has finally been fixed and updated. Newest addition: Eric Lamaze. Gold for Canada and redemption for himself. YAY!

On the subject of show jumping – for a dirty, extremely satisfying read, there’s no one better than Jilly Cooper. And Rupert Campbell-Black is probably one of the most endearing characters in trash literature.

It’s Friday! Leaving Seattle for home this afternoon, popping in for golf along the way. Perfect end to a perfect mini-break. Have a great, great weekend!

Yours in gossip,


PS. Nice to know I’m not the only one with a sick problem. Thank you for sharing your summer obsession struggles. We can be deranged together. If you missed it yesterday – click here for the Essence of the Annual Summer Crush.
