Festival Ebola

There’s a stank around Toronto this morning and it has everything to do with the fact that Hollywood Ebola Paris Hilton has arrived. She’s screening a movie tonight called Paris Not France and came in with Benji Madden yesterday to host a party at Ultra. Here they are at the airport – my sources say they were met there by 5 bodyguards who were ready to escort her out a side entrance to avoid the paps. Full Story

So where was Josh?

Many of you have emailed today about Joshua Jackson. He was originally confirmed to walk the carpet last night at TIFF for the One Week gala and did not show. UK tabloids today are reporting that he visited Katie Holmes this week with a bouquet of flowers after seeing photos of her looking wan and sad. Full Story

Of course

Of course it was. It was silver and big, it was the opposite of subtle, it was a princess at the ball – it was Kate Beckinsale who can never manage to scale it back… ever. This is Kate on the carpet last night at the TIFF screening of Nothing But The Truth. She looked lovely, yes. And she’s a pretty woman, yes. Full Story

Mom in NY by day, by night

Nicole Richie took Harlow out for a stroll yesterday – look at the chubbs! Those little feet are like fresh hot buns! Would you have believed a year ago? That between Nicoles, it’s Richie who seems a more normal mom? That it wasn’t Nicole Richie who beat her body back into starvation within days of giving birth? Shocking. Full Story

Exclusive. Guess who happened to be in Toronto while Jennifer Aniston was in Toronto? None other than Matt Felker, with whom she was linked immediately after breaking up with John Mayer. Remember Matt Felker? Click here Full Story

Posh Crops!

Posh had been rocking her bob for over a year – it was getting stale, it was time for a change. And of course, in true Posh fashion, she chose to debut the change in dramatic fashion, pretty much stealing the spotlight at the Marc Jacobs show in NY for fashion week alongside Jennifer Lopez. Check them out upon arrival: Victoria and the Lopez pretty much eclipsed everyone else, engaging in a fierce pose-off for photographers in contrasting black and white. Full Story

September 9, 2008 – Smutty Shout-Outs

Happy Birthday to Rona O in Galway City, Ireland! Emma is missing you so much for vino and “a little something” to gobble on. Hope the sun came out today? And for Leila P – had a GREAT time last night, as evidenced by our blue clubby photo! We’ll have to take another one tonight? Full Story

Dear Gossips

Do you prefer your Chicken Fried crazy? Or do you prefer your Chicken Fried boring? Because while her body rocked the sh*t (like ROCKED the f&cking sh*t, right?) that pre-taped opening wasn’t fooling anyone. And the weave… and the dress…

But it doesn’t matter. Because Britney won. Britney was happy. Britney did not fling her fake nails into the crowd…and if you have sex before marriage, it means you’re a slut. Sit DOWN Jordin Sparks.

Like… why did the VMAs totally suck?

Random high points? Did Russell Brand kill you? Russell Brand killed me. Even just standing there. Like in a Michael Scott, I can’t stop watching in abject horror with my hands over my face compulsion. Apparently I’m in the minority. And the Twilight freaks are losing their tits! Russell cut off Rob Pattinson. Russell hates Twilight! Love Russell Brand! Also love Pink’s onesie. Do they sell them at Petit Tresor?
Rihanna makes my life. McLovin’!

But those were few and far between.

Remember when the VMAs actually mattered??? Seriously, why were the VMAs so low budge? The entire set was like Sesame Street. Xtina lipsynched! Boo!

It was a stacked weekend. And like last year, the Roof Lounge at the Park Hyatt is once again the place to be during TIFF. Tales from the top to follow and Brad, Jen, in an elevator with Kate Hudson, and Lilo comes to Toronto with SamRo. So much smut to catch up on. Keep refreshing. Please excuse typos? Bleary-eyed blogging…

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

PS. Angelina Jolie does not ban bottles. Neither does Salma Hayek.

PPS. Jessica Alba does not need anger management.

PPPS. We could talk about Beyonce’s assy weave. We could talk all day. And Miley Cyrus singing just might rival Rossum in Rossum. It would be an epic round of Would You Rather. But my mother-in-law is a breast cancer survivor. My cousin lost her father much too early. And most of you have been profoundly affected by the disease. So all those ladies sharing the stage, Mimi agreeing to share a stage with the others, Beyonce agreeing to stand by RiRi with a JailBait in between them… it’s a good thing.
