Dear Gossips,

Calgary rocks.

Thanks to all of those who made it out to BLVD last night. Hope you had a great time. I had a great time. And to Alison – if you’re still talking to me – hope there are no hard feelings? We never did catch up again about the riddles and more guesses. Look forward to your email.

Photos from Calgary gossip night to come on Monday but suffice to say – Cowtown showed me a great party. Thank you, love you, owe you. And see you at the Junos!

Friday – am blogging all day. Am also wicked hung over. Please forgive typos?

Yours in gossip,


PS. Everyone seems to be hating on Madonna’s new video because she looks touched up beyond belief. What ISN’T touched up beyond believe these days? Have you seen the ladies of Sex & the City? Click here for their new promotional shots. Madge vs Carrie’s Crew… I call it a draw. And I totally love 4 Minutes to Save the World. Love, love, love. Love the crazy one hand drop she does on the dance floor, love the styling, love her Mary Kate hair. Love how uncomfortable I feel when they start undressing each other. And I especially love the fact that she’s still killing it after all these years. To watch 4 minutes to Save the World, click here. Look forward to reading you all complain about her plastic surgery. Hee.

PPS. Many, many thanks to Cathy Downey at Grit Communications who pulled together a party in less than a week and who coordinated an event that would have impressed, yes, even Madonna. Cathy from Calgary is WORLD CLASS PR.

Young royals hit up Mahiki last night with Hot Harry leading the way along with Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie. I love the name Eugenie. If a female dog is in my future, her name will be Eugenie. This is a compliment. Am also all over her blue polish. Like that it’s flat and not shimmery. Eugenie is Harry to me. Full Story

Our favourite game! Making assumptions based on one photo – just like the tabloids! Ready to play? This is a series: nauseating Katherine Heigl with her husband yesterday shopping, then big smiles when the paps come around. What are you inferring? Especially from the shots of them stone faced waiting for their car? Maybe Josh is offended by her coat? Because I’m certainly offended by her coat. Full Story

Everyone’s boyfriend next door John Krasinski stopped by The Today Show this morning to promote Leatherheads opening today. There’s the trademark sheepish look – the one that makes us quiver. But …. I hate his hair. John can’t “do” his hair. His hair just won’t get “done”. Full Story

So… The entire eTalk team is at the Saddledome right now in Calgary working on the show. We are busy. We are frantic. There are a million people running around, writing script, running cable, adjusting lights. Not old hags like me but young cute gays, girls, and boys, hipsters who probably summer in Williamsburg. Full Story

Seriously… Kimmel is the new king of late night comedy. Am sure you’ve heard about the pregnant dude on Oprah – so last night on his show, Jimmy Kimmel offers up a different interpretation. Screen caps are attached. Are you losing your sh*t?  Full Story

Yesterday’s news that Anne Hathaway’s boyfriend was arrested should have come as no surprise. Raffaelo Follieri stanks of shady sh*t. And it’s not the first time he’s been called out for dirty business dealings. Even more sinister when you consider the rumours that he has something cooking with Harvey Weinstein, not exactly a bastion of honour either. Full Story

Why She’s So Cranky

She isn’t eating. She hasn’t been eating for weeks, hellbent on losing what she calls some extra padding but what everyone else calls … nothing. There is nothing to lose. But still she needs to lose it. Started dieting furiously a couple of months ago but wasn’t seeing results quickly enough so she’s cut back the food and as a result has turned into a total hag, chewing people out during production meetings, yelling at catering staff for daring to bring food near her, and getting into a little shoving match with her own publicist, who has the unfortunate position of having to attend to her as she ramps up promotion, over scheduling. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Thanks for all your messages – yes! Friday Night Lights is officially officially coming back for a 3rd season… but only beginning Winter 2009. As in January. Which means those of you STILL not watching have 9 months to catch up! Do it for Taylor Kitsch! Do it for your loins!

Jude Law just arrived in Vancouver, on the same day Verne Troyer aka Mini Me collapsed on the set of The Imaginarium of Dr Parnassus. Johnny Depp was supposedly not feeling so great while working briefly on the movie as well. Like that film needed anymore setbacks. Hopefully a taste of Jude will turn fortunes. Seeing him again after a long low key absence… he looks well rested and, I daresay, almost cute. Almost. Photos below.

Thursday – am in Calgary! Blogging between eTalk shoots all day. Check back often.

Yours in gossip,


PS. Hayden Panettiere is not off sick.
