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

Talking to Dad

A very good friend of mine - her father is as hilarious as my mother. He once objected to her attending a sleepover during middle school because "what if father is rapist?" Amazing, non? Similarly, when I was visiting my parents in Toronto last year - I was 33 at the time - my mother insisted on staying on the phone with me the entire ride. Full Story

Lara – this is for you. It’s our shamef&ck, Ed Westwick, at the Sisterhood premiere last night oozing his signature smarm. I can’t… I can’t… I can’t look at this without covering my face. And grimacing. Because the feet. The turned out feet. And the short legs in skinny jeans. Full Story

The Best Blake

Maxi dress on a tall girl…makes such a difference. Even though I wish I could see her feet. Check out the best Blake Lively in a while last night on the carpet at the Sisterhood premiere. She glows, yes, she glows all over. But for me it’s the hair. Braids are my thing. A new variation on braids! Squee! Blake was supported last night by several co-stars including Leighton Meester who, at only 22, clearly understands girl code better than Victoria Beckham. Full Story

Ridiculous, crazy gorgessity. This is America Ferrera at the NY premiere last night of the Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants 2. Have you read them? The Pants are the anti-Hills. The anti-Paris Hilton. And the Pants aren’t boy crazy or shoe crazy. The Pants are all about your girls. I love the Pants. Full Story

Maternity fashion is so cute these days. Here’s Naomi Watts, pregnant with her second, out with her first yesterday in New York. Naomi, of course, is/was besties with Nicole Kidman, who seems to be having a hard time convincing you that she really was pregnant. Naomi on the other hand…well, for starters, Naomi’s face actually moves. Full Story

Remember that killer episode of the Office was when Michael assigned Dwight to pick (slash) the Health Benefit plan? In typical moron Michael fashion, he tries to sell it as a big surprise and when his big surprise is finally revealed, naturally everyone tells him to take a hike. So he changes track and promises the real “big surprise” at the end of the day. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Yet another child star became unhinged this weekend, trying to kill people with his car. Yay for child stardom! Perhaps an exception to the rule though – Natalie Portman…and child stars raised outside of North America. Away from Hollywood.

What are the chances Emma Watson will NOT be popped for DUI one day. I say pretty good. You? Here she is, soooo promisingly beautiful, at some hoity toity polo event this weekend in London, surrounded by eligible bachelors.

Sigh. November 21, 2008 … do we really have to wait so long for the Half Blood Prince?!?!?

It’s Monday, am back home in Vancouver and blogging all day. Check back often.

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

PS. Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis are not in crisis.

PPS. Bad hair and bug-eyed is not Shia LaBeouf. Also not Joaquin Phoenix.
