Dear Gossips,

Is there a course you can take for sleeping elegantly on a plane? No matter how cute the travel outfit, it doesn’t make a difference when you’re tired and flying. I was givin’er yesterday on my flight back to Vancouver. Like head back, open-mouth drools, and even some twitching, passed out so intensely that when I came to at the end, the flight attendant welcomed me back from the brink.

Am thankful Colin Farrell wasn’t on my flight.

He is however in Vancouver. Arrived yesterday to begin shooting Dr Parnassus. Was at the Roosevelt pool the other night while we were there having dinner. Details to follow today and also about Ben Affleck’s absence at the Oscars.

Back in Vancouver on regular blog schedule for the rest of the week. Am headed to Montreal tonight to host the final “Evening of Hot Experiences” party sponsored by Secret. Hope to see you there?

Wednesday – all day posting, check back often.

Yours in gossip,


PS. Yes, am wearing leggings on Oscar night under my dress. Tanya was actually wearing yoga pants under hers. It was drafty up there on the balcony and we were only shot from the waist up anyway. Wish I could tell you I’m one of those twats who’ll freeze for the sake of fashion but that night we wanted to be warm. Forgive?

PPS. Diva bitch at the photo shoot is not Katherine Heigl, not Jennifer Lopez, not Madonna.

PPPS. Eva Longoria is not arguing about her eggs in public.

The news of Scarlett Johansson’s musical aspirations was initially met with much scorn. Another actress trying to be a singer…not exactly the best track record. Now comes word that David Bowie contributed, literally, a few “oohs and ahhs” on Scarjo’s album and Bowie himself has written that Scarjo’s upcoming Tom Waits cover is “really, really good…and Scarlett’s performances are mystical and twice cool. Full Story

Sean Penn and Heath Ledger were supposed to co-star in Terence Malick’s new feature Tree of Life. Brad Pitt has now stepped into the vacated role and shooting will start in Austin Texas like right now which isn"t the best timing. SXSW will kick off in 2 weeks - major paparazzi presence to begin with. Full Story

If George Had Taste…

If George Clooney had any taste, he’d be all over my Marion. As it happens, George Clooney prefers his girls deep on the cheap and tawdry side. And although he’s trying to whitewash her in the mainstream media with cute little details about their Oscar night to People Magazine and the like, Sarah Larsen at the end of the day will always be the girl who danced for Nine. Full Story

Pipsqueak or Owen?

There was a lame report that surfaced at the weekend – some bullsh*t about Kate Hudson and Justin Timberlake secretly dating for a year but she didn’t want to go public because she feared embarrassment and heartache a la Cameron Diaz. I mean really… Don’t they know Kate? Don’t they know Kate the unabashed maneater? Why would Kate Hudson bother for more than one night with JT and his pipsqueak? Why would Kate Hudson be embarrassed by anyone? Please. Full Story

Have received emails from many of you re: Ben Affleck’s absence at the Oscars but there really is nothing smutty to report. And even if there was, do you really think Taupe would let that go? Since marrying Ben and birthing Violet, ingratiating herself to the Mommy Majority, Jennifer Garner’s career is hotter than ever. Full Story

Colin by the Pool

Monday night at the Roosevelt – team farewell dinner by the pool, Colin Farrell is sitting a few feet over on a pool couch talking intently to another man. But first… Colin at the Oscars. To be honest, he wasn’t a stand out. Sorry. Because as hot as he is, and he is hot, he was also sharing a carpet with Daniel Day-Lewis, Johnny Depp, and Javier Bardem. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Remaining Oscar posts have been added below - scroll down -  including Johnny and Vanessa and Javier and Marion.

Today"s gossip including details re: John Krasinski and flirting with Zach Braff to come.

Oh and Colin Farrell was at the Roosevelt pool bar last night. More on that later.

Am writing furiously but while you"re waiting - here"s an Oscar weekend riddle:

Eggs in Public: at an Oscar party on Sunday night, he"s been drinking, she"s been nagging. Turns into a huge, embarrassingly loud argument about the most personal of matters: she wants babies, he doesn"t, and they proceed to yell at each other about it in front of a large audience.

More coming soon!

Yours in gossip,


Annyong David!

Remember Annyong Bluth? Snort. David Beckham arrived in Korea today on a promo tour with the LA Galaxy which means he will miss the final Spice Girls concert tonight in Toronto. Family members have flown in from around the world to support the Spices but it’ll be a Becks-free show at the ACC when Posh takes her final bow. Full Story
