Dear Gossips,

My girl crush Gab Free sent me Chelsea Handler’s book a few months ago – Are You There Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea. Of course Gab’s recommendation was right on. And of course Chelsea Handler is amazing … but if you don’t have time to read the book, her six minute interview with T.I. (for whom I harbour achy burns) will give you a great snapshot.

She calls them on their celebrity bullsh-t, and they keep coming back. T.I. was totally game, which is cool, but can you imagine if more talk show hosts were willing to be this straight up in your face candid? Love her.

The part when they’re discussing “his situation”? It will make your life.

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

PS. Salma Hayek and Penelope Cruz are not besties in bed.

PPS. B1 is not Scarjo. B2 is not Anne Hathaway.

He’s been silent for so long I almost missed him. Then he started writing again and I’m sorry I ever said that. John Mayer, who else? John Mayer Douchebag has written for the Huffington Post Full Story

Tom & Will declare themselves…and whisper together

It’s the 2nd PSA following the highly successful Don’t Vote video. And there are a few hidden gems. Look for the GMD and Will Smith whispering together looking awfully comfortable doing it. The GMD also tries to be sarcastic. In the end he ends up the way he always is: a one note actor. And of course… Pipsqueak’s ego makes an appearance. Full Story

Another reason not to eat

Once upon a time, Armani was the man. Then he made the ugliest dress for Katie Holmes’s wedding and now most of the designs coming out of Armani Prive look like they’ve been inspired by Tina Knowles. It’s embarrassing. One blip of a bright light? Becks starring in the underwear ad campaign. Full Story

Interview on Triple C

Triple C: Coffee, cigarettes… and coke? This is a very cranked up Shenae Grimes on the set of the new but not improved 90210 being interviewed about her current show and her old show. As you can see, she’s talking out of her veins. Need a nap just looking at her. Worse: Shenae sounds dumb. Full Story

Chicken Fried in rehearsal

We’re lucky these days if we see Britney papped once a week. She’s undercover, working hard, prepping for Circus…and it’s a super smart strategy. Chicken Fried Stupid finally not so stupid. Because what’s she doing is she’s posting photos on her own site instead. Photos you can’t get anywhere else. Full Story

Bloomingdales sells de Sh-ts

Yesterday in New York, Beyonce launched her House of de Sh-ts dress collection at Bloomingdales. Bloomingdales. Dillard’s I totally get. But Bloomingdales? Really? Check her out, wearing one of her mother’s designs ripped off from Marciano which in and of itself is problematic, only Marciano’s price tag is closer to it’s nasty ass quality. Full Story

LOVE the name Archie! LOVE Will Arnett and Amy Poehler! LOVE their low key but very elegant birth announcement the other day in the Globe & Mail, Canada’s oldest national daily paper – thanks Julia for sending! Archibald William Emerson Arnett… Cute, right? Good time to revisit the video below – they predict Archie will be Sean Penn! File photo from Splashnewsonline.com Full Story

Porny at Macy’s

Lainey Posted by Lainey at October 29, 2008 07:12:45 October 29, 2008 07:12:45

She must be surrounded by backstabbers. Surrounded by them. How else can you explain? Why else would she walk out the door wearing this? The fur collar. And the wrap. And the silver. And the hair. Porny looks like a 50 year old divorcee, she looks like Ivanka Trump…WTF? This is Jessica Simpson last night on the Macy’s red carpet, as usual, styled from the ass. Full Story

Old Bag out of touch

Every year Barbara Walters puts together a list of the Top 10 Most Fascinating People. The show usually airs in late November or early December, the first position cloaked in secrecy until the very end. Last year the formidable JK Rowling occupied the top spot. This year, it’s very possible. It could be another woman, albeit one who is decidedly less… Less everything. Full Story
