My comfort food - mentioned it in an article a while back. Since then, many have written for the recipe. Recipe is below. But not in a Martha Stewart way. My people, we don't learn to cook like that. There were no measuring cups back in the village. And beef and tomato is all about the village. It's village food. Full Story

Taking credit…for everything

After performing at the Grammy’s Pip said he was solely responsible for the show’s amazing ratings. After endorsing McDonalds, Pippy boasted he was solely responsible for the company’s overall net gains. Curiously enough, after The Love Guru stank up the box office, Pippy did not take accountability for its failure. Full Story

Kanye TV?

Love him. So talented, so obnoxious, so insufferable, so unapologetic, and SO entertaining… Which is probably why HBO wants so badly to give him his own show, enlisting the services of the producer from Curb Your Enthusiasm to work on a “single-camera series that would follow the busy life of the Grammy-winning artist and his relationship with family and friends. Full Story

The Players Played Out

Disappointing…but really no surprise. Three months is about right for lust to wear off anyway. In the end, the battle between two practiced players ended in deadlock. Us Weekly is reporting that the summer romance between Kate Hudson and Lance Armstrong is over. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

So Jennifer Aniston showed up at Villa on Saturday night with John Mayer. At Villa! Where the girls from The Hills go to party. Wonder if she was seated next to Lauren Conrad? This totally makes my life. I would pay to watch Jennifer Aniston squirm and touch her hair incessantly at Villa.

Here’s her boyfriend yesterday shopping at Fred Segal. British tabloids have compared his new look to David Beckham’s.

Please!

It takes more than a buzzed head and a few tattoos to make up for the limp dick lyrics and the whiny bitch who lives inside.

Tuesday – new posts throughout the day. Remember to refresh!

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

PS. Tobey Maguire’s commitment is not in crisis.

PPS. Mike Myers is not bad haired and bug-eyed. Also not Jonathan Rhys Meyers.

Rounding out the Sisterhood

And finally... the fourth piece of the Pants – Tibby, played by Amber Tamblyn who is following the recent jumpsuit trend but maybe not with the results of Gwyneth and Maggie before her. Still…the Sisterhood is not about style. Simply put, the Sisterhood is about 4 girls who love each other. Full Story

This is Tom Riddle

If the name means nothing to you, skip to the next. You won’t care. But many, many, many of you DO care. Because we love Harry Potter. And the brand new trailer for the Half Blood Prince drops tonight. Yay! Among the juicy reveals – a first look at Tom Riddle. Creepy, right? Of course. This is the boy who will go on to become the Dark Lord Voldemort. Full Story

Before Hayden…

There was Alexis. Alexis and Milo Ventimiglia, remember? Many of you feel about Gilmore Girls the way I feel about Friday Night Lights. Including my friend Duana. I think she still has episodes of it on her PVR. And even though I was too late to the bandwagon, I can understand the devotion to a beautifully written, underrated underdog and, by extension, the actors you grow to love on those shows. Full Story

Australia’s true queen

Granny Freeze likes to think of herself as Nicole Kidman, Queen of Australia but please…we all know the truth. And the truth is this: Gran isn’t even worthy of holding Cate’s umbrella. Cate Blanchett and her husband Andrew Upton attended the Helpmann Awards the other night – as you can see, Cate is clearly still breast feeding. Full Story
