Everyone here in LA is buzzing about the battle royale on the red carpet on Sunday – Jen and John and the Brange at the Oscars? Perhaps John Mayer is hoaxing. Hopefully not! Academy seating plans! What to do? Anyway, thanks to Noelle for this delicious little blast from the past. A John Mayer interview with Rolling Stone Full Story

Grey Goose Twilight, Mamma Mia, and more

It was supposed to be a quiet night last night at the Grey Goose party – the first of three this week. Dylan and I were planning on easing into the festivities. Not quiet, no easing. We should have known when we walked in right behind Jimmy Kimmel and Sarah Silverman, inseparable all night. Sarah in person? GORGEOUS. Full Story

Filthy Scab Fashion Week

Lainey Posted by Lainey at February 19, 2009 10:07:20 February 19, 2009 10:07:20

She modeled for Richie Rich …if you can call this modeling. I call it spraying skank. But why quibble over definitions? This is Pamela Anderson in all her Filthy Scab glory classing up the runway. Was Anna Wintour in the front row? Please, someone, send me a photo of her face! Anna can shrivel with her eyes…and there’s an abundance to hate on where the Scab is concerned, even when she’s covered up. Full Story

Gwynnie super mini!

Coldplay performed at the War Child show last night in London so of course Gwyneth was there to support her husband wearing a killer jacket and of course a super mini to show off those Tracy Anderson legs. As you can see, GOOP is glowing, happy to have hurdled their recent marital hump. Per usual, the two were not photographed together. Full Story

Shelfy > Posh too?

Lainey Posted by Lainey at February 19, 2009 08:20:52 February 19, 2009 08:20:52

Oh Posh. Losing out to Blake Lively for a Vogue cover. And possibly Katherine Heigl. And now…perhaps the ultimate insult… Shelf Ass Jessica Biel??? You see? This is the power of the Pipsqueak. This is why his Herm will never, ever, EVER let go. Because her movies tank, she isn’t working on anything, she’s a tv girl period, but still, after her boyfriend Justin Timberlake introduces her to Anna Wintour, suddenly Shelfy might cover Vogue. Full Story

Have you seen this before?

Lainey Posted by Lainey at February 19, 2009 07:31:53 February 19, 2009 07:31:53

Oh look! It’s Sienna Miller looking busted at the end of the night getting into a cab! She’s young, she was leaving the War Child after party, she clearly enjoyed a few drinks…nothing wrong with that. Come on, she’s not working on some woman’s husband for a change. Let her have her fun. Full Story

The Hoff at the Brits!

Lainey Posted by Lainey at February 19, 2009 07:21:00 February 19, 2009 07:21:00

Don’t ask me why he’s there. Don’t even bother sending me whatever explanation about a movie or a tv show or some dvd or even worse, a new album. I don’t care. There is only one reason The Hoff ever shows up anywhere and that is it to provide the cheese. Don’t ask me who he has with him. Full Story

Can Cheryl Cole conquer America?

Lainey Posted by Lainey at February 19, 2009 07:15:08 February 19, 2009 07:15:08

It took Victoria Beckham 3 times and several years… You all in the UK keep telling me: Cheryl Cole is it right now, and Girls Aloud won big last night, and even though in North American they haven’t quite connected, many people believe that Cheryl has the potential to cross over. She’s been to LA on a couple of exploratory trips the last few months… things look promising, and some predict there’s a possibility she might succeed with less time and less desperation than the Posh. Full Story

Kylie kept changing!

Lainey Posted by Lainey at February 19, 2009 07:06:36 February 19, 2009 07:06:36

And why not? She cohosted the Brit Awards last night so she decided to wear a new dress every time she was called on stage. I think I like the red best… You? LOVE her. LOVE how – corny moment ahead – her happiness is palpable. Like I can see it. Kylie Minogue seems really, really fulfilled in life. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Am heading to LA today – it’s eTalk at the Oscars!

Ugh. That diseased Ebola. It was her birthday yesterday and she sent a plague from between her legs. Now have a MASSIVE pimple on the left side of my chin that will not heal by Sunday. F-cker.

Anyway, forgive the shameless self promotion and skip ahead if you don’t care but eTalk is the only Canadian spot on the red carpet during Oscar arrivals, and one of only two networks in the world – the other being ABC – to have a balcony position which for the third year in a row, is where Tanya Kim and I will be, perched just above the entrance to the Kodak theatre. Celebrities will mount the stairs to our level before shuffling into the auditorium. Last year I nearly ran over one of the Coen brothers on my way to the press room. And this year I’ll be live blogging from the press room!

Also… asking your questions?

Winners will make their way backstage. So if there’s something you really want Penelope Cruz or Taraji P Henson or Mickey Rourke or Sean Penn or Meryl Streep or Kate Winslet to answer… send me a note that night. I’m there. More details later this week.

eTalk at the Oscars, the live red carpet broadcast begins at 6pm ET/3pm PT across CTV/A Channel/Star!/and Fashion Television. Check your listings.

Several days of sleepless nights begins now. Are you ready? Academy voters have submitted their ballots, voting has now closed. Entries are still being accepted however for The Annual Contest. Win that Stella!

Wednesday – blogging on the fly, as often as I can get a wireless signal!

Yours in gossip,


PS. Scowl Face is not cheating on Patrick Dempsey. Nobody this crusty is having that much fun on the side. Russell Crowe is not being cuckolded either.
