Rendered deliriosu from Baby Fever, several outlets jumped the gun last week reporting that Jennifer Lopez had checked into a Long Island hospital to give birth. Obviously not. Her father, the Scientologist, did confirm yesterday however that she is indeed expecting twins. Definitely looks like it too. Full Story

After their hook up on the set of Factory Girl, Harvey Weinstein tried to capitalise on the brief fling between Hayden Christensen and Sienna Miller. Unfortunately, their attraction quickly turned into animosity and given that Hayden allegedly refused to cooperate, he quickly went from being Harvey’s goldenboy to sitting in his sh*thouse. Full Story

It rarely works, and it works only on a select few. The red lips, the frizzy hair, the earrings, the makeup… for anyone else my mother would be screeching low classy. On Kylie Minogue, it’s perfect. Love, love, love. Kylie showed up at the Golden Camera Awards with some horse teeth too – unlike Hilary Swank, Kylie’s chompers are the cutest. Full Story

Presenting Hilary Swank, here at the Golden Camera Awards in Germany. Like Sarah Jessica Parker, Hilary with her equine dental work is starting to resemble Helen Gurley Brown, the original Fun! Fearless! Female! Blech. Blecher still is the fact that this bitch has not one but TWO Oscars… the second one thanks in large part to Clint Eastwood’s tireless campaigning. Full Story

Holiday with Bar Leo

Leo loves models. And really… can you blame him? He is after all a total dude. A dude who once trolled the club scene with what was known then as his “p*ssy posse”. At the very least, he has a certain aesthetic standard. And as you can see, Bar Rafaeli very much lives up to it. Bar and Leo have been enjoying a bit of down time on vacay, lounging by the pool, soaking up the sun, doing jack f&ck all the way rich people do. Full Story

By now you’ve heard she’s made the cover –a lengthy expose on what went wrong. The article is better than what you’ll find in People, Us Weekly, In Touch – all of them. It’s well researched, with quotes from legitimate NAMED sources… and while many of you may be sympathising with Spears of late, considering the constant daily updates from the TMZ psych ward (is there such thing as patient confidentiality anymore?), the Rolling Stones portrait is part neutral but also very critical – of her management team, of the media, of society, but especially of Lynne and Jamie’s relentless exploitation of their children, and above all judgment of Britney herself, asserting that she has been complicit in what’s become of her, hell bent on proving to the world that she is not the angel she was sold to be. Full Story

Rapidly. All of a sudden since the show went on strike hiatus, it’s like she can’t style herself anymore. Blake Lively is falling! Help her! This is Blake Lively turning into Jessica Simpson at Letterman yesterday quickly turning into a generic blonde mall girl. Even the eyeshadow is going to sh*t. Full Story

I met her during the Toronto International Film Festival in 2006 at an after hours party. She seemed cranked up on something – possibly ecstasy – and was fully buried in oblivion on the dance floor by the time we arrived, grinding up on 2 different men, spinning around suggestively, and still the sweetest girl ever. Full Story

Once upon a time, some people actually cared about Heather Graham. Then they figured out she can’t do much but open her eyes wide and look pretty. It was over quickly. Credit to her, she still persists. Still making her way in Hollywood, with a lifetime membership on the C List, and resorting to tactics like these for attention. Full Story

Perhaps it wasn’t sad smut for my Gwynnie after all! Following her hospitalisation last month, initial information centred around a heartbreaking loss. The “official” explanation from her camp, via friend Mario Batali, was a gastrointestinal problem that was quickly solved. However, am now hearing from new sources that her people are trying to rearrange her schedule through the spring, including shortening her shooting days and reworking her planned trip with Mario on their food tour to lighten her load given her commitments prior to the Iron Man release … because she’s expecting her third?!? Apparently the evening at Caroline’s Comedy Club that I reported Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Few quick Superbowl details that aren’t so smutty but kinda interesting nonetheless. Gavin Rossdale and Roger Federer arrived together at the tailgate party, not stopping for interviews but walking the carpet. Both dressed in grey and both really, really, really hot. And tall. That Roger is tall is not surprising. But Gavin isn’t too much shorter. Come to think of it, neither is John Travolta. Then again, I’d been looking at Ryan Seacrest all day. Next to him, everyone is tall.

The best is when Seacrest wrapped up his pre-show for E! With Travolta as his guest standing beside him, Ryan signs off:

And we’re out!


Oh and Gisele… Gisele came in the celebrity entrance and then practically ran down the carpet, causing the biggest stir. Hair was unwashed, wearing skinny jeans tucked into black suede boots, and a fitted black shirt, gorgeous of course but she looked tense. Looked tense the whole game. And I remember seeing her, dressed so somberly and thinking – I hope she’s wearing red underwear because again, just like the hair cut, it’s terribly bad luck. Case in point: Tiger Woods always wears red for his final round. You don’t mess with red.

Tuesday – am home, have returned to regular blog schedule until the Oscars which means am posting all day (check back often!) in between bouts of mad dash cleaning and scrubbing. Chinese New Year in 2 days – if you have cleaning to do, including laundry, you better do it before Thursday. Otherwise, no cleaning til Sunday!

Yours in gossip,


PS. Just As She Is: not about Kevin Bacon or Harrison Ford or Ben Affleck who doesn’t exactly qualify as non-scandalous.
