Cher is coming out of retirement and she’s hitting the talk show circuit to promote her new tour. Seriously… is she hard up for cash? Why do you these people promise to hang it up only to take it down five minutes later??? Anyway, this morning on Good Morning America, Cher revealed that she once dated the GMD. Full Story

Dear Emily – HAPPY BIRTHDAY! It’s been forever and I imagine life with Lizzie is only getting busier. Perhaps we’ll arrange a night off for you when I’m next in town? Big hug, have a lovely day. To Erin E in Camas, WA – Jenn in Connecticut can’t wait to see you at the baby shower! For Heidi in India from your sister Kirsten in Texas – it WILL happen soon. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

If the Oscars are scaled back this year due to the unresolved writer’s strike, Madonna’s star-studded Raising Malawi event last night in New York will stand as the carpet of the year, bar none. Super A List attendees, even some who were once hostile, and yes… the GMD too! No gay man can resist Madonna!

Many, many photos to come… including my Gwyneth back in pink!

A lovely, lovely way to kick off the New Year, if only that Chicken Fried Family could get it together, just once.

Thursday – blogging all day, check back often.

And Happy New Year!

GUNG HAY FAT CHOI! May the Year of the Rat bring you health and happiness. May the Year of the Rat bring all of us good, fun, juicy smut!

Yours in gossip,


PS. Happy 40th Birthday to Erik! Love, Estella

PPS. To Drea on your 31st birthday and the first with your 6 month old son… big hug and best wishes for the most amazing year ahead.

PPPS. The following was sent to me from Kevin who requested the message be posted as such: "my girlfriend Jessica is obsessed with your site and she"s turning 24 tomorrow so I know she"d love it if you wished her a happy birthday." The Boyfriend, Kevin

PPPPS. Sean Penn is not looking for good help. Neither is Colin Farrell. Or P Diddy.

Best Friends Gift Chanel

Jennifer Aniston turns 39 on Monday and her BFF Courteney Cox has gifted her with a pretty sweet present. It’s the Chanel bike – valued at approximately $12K complete with signature Chanel quilting and of course the Double C. Apparently Courteney presented it to her last week and she can’t wait to start riding it, especially since the very weight conscious Jen has been dogged by pregnancy rumours all year, now that she’s not obsessively Zone-dieting all the time. Full Story

Have received a boatload of emails about this today – oh the dreaded, unreliable Bump Watch. Ugh. But still… many of you are convinced Kate Hudson is pregnant because she’s been wearing baggy clothes of late, including this number last night at the Madonna Malawi event. According the baby fever fanatics, she also looks a little bloated in the face – supposedly a sure sign. Full Story

When Charlize Lets Loose

SO beautiful! Love what she"s wearing...but for the hair. She"s has never had great hair... Charlize Theron received the annual Hasty Pudding Theatricals Woman of the Year award from Harvard University today and in university tradition, hammed it up for the crowd. Charlize, of course, is a “serious” actor these days, conveniently and successfully putting her model beginnings behind her, only game for meaningful and artistic endeavours these days. Full Story

Diddy Dillard’s

Diddy showed up at Madonna’s Malawi Gucci event last night and in the wake of so many super elite arrivals, no one really cared. Poor Diddy. Or Sean. It has to be the constant name changes – makes for bad luck. After all, if you can’t even hang on to a name, if you can’t even own your identity, why would your career be any more stable? And this is why Diddy has suddenly become very much a B list player, a subtle difference but a palpable one nonetheless. Full Story

Fashion Judgment

Front row at Vera Wang today – Anna Wintour and Andre Leon Talley, faces full of judgment. On normal people, these expressions could most certainly be interpreted as negative reviews. Given that these two only smile once a year, however, in this case it’s much more difficult to say. I will always have nightmares about Andre Leon Talley at the Oscars last February. Full Story

There are few exceptions to my Celebrity Baby Theory. Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber, definitely. And most definitely Elvis Presley and Priscilla. Both beyond beautiful, their offspring escaped the ugly curse though the same can’t be said in other areas. Full Story

They’re a bit dated but have never been addressed here and in spite of the vulgarity, it really is too good to ignore. Especially since it’s George Clooney, the George Clooney idolised as the perfect man by women everywhere. NOT SAFE FOR WORK! Remember this? Full Story

Angelina Un-Hollywood

Angelina Jolie travelled to Iraq this week, risking her life to fight for the rights of displaced refugees. As you can see, she looks bunk. Super tired, super weary, battling through pregnancy sickness while trying saving the world. The most beautiful woman, arguably, in Hollywood during an interview with CNN waved off the makeup artist, appearing on international television – and you know this will get aired everywhere – to urge the global community to do what’s right by victims of war. Full Story
