Dear Gossips,

Interesting conversation over dinner last night with marketing folks from around the world, including Moscow and Mexico – somehow the discussion veered towards celebrities. Funny how that happens.

Greatly enamoured by the Russians? None other than Keira Knightley. They think she’s the most beautiful woman ever…BECAUSE she never smiles. Because her bulimic jaw is full of drama. Amazing, non? And according to them, Cate Blanchett is ugly as ass. WHAT!?!?!? Blasphemy!

Also…Leonardo DiCaprio was rubbish in Blood Diamond but truly defined as a man in The Departed. This point was passionately defended. As was their love for Titanic.

Perspective is fascinating, non?

Am blogging from Paris today – no idea what time it is anywhere. All I do know is that I am afraid to go out. If I go out I’ll spend all our savings on something frivolous, like a pair of black Valentino scalloped jewelled booties and maybe a leather jacket from Nina Ricci and please get me the f&ck out of Colette because we want to buy a home next year and it won’t happen because Paris is evil… EVIL.

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

PS. Kate Beckinsale did not choose body over baby … like that. Also not Jessica Alba.

Donatella or BitchFace?

Patrick Dempsey showed up at the Whitney gala last night without his scowly wife. Replacing her on his arm was none other than Donatella Versace who…well… you know what I’m about to say, I don’t have to say it, because all of you are feeling it: she’s raping your eyes. Full Story

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
