Dear Gossips,

How civilised.

Madonna and Guy Ritchie, a quickie divorce, reportedly not battling over money, and agreeing to share custody of the children. And of course the British press giving Guy all the credit for managing the situation without much McCartney-style drama. He went out for dinner last night with his two boys. A few pap agencies happened to be there. Coincidence or conspiracy?

Well played Guy Ritchie.

Thank you to everyone who emailed about RDJ’s lunch box – late day post yesterday, scroll down to get caught up. Apparently it’s a pelican case, used to protect camera equipment. He also happens to be wearing a scarf that comes free in the December issue of UK In Style. Why is this cute to me? For more on the scarf, click here.

It’s Friday! New articles all day. Have a great weekend!

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

Sh*tty writing and no lesbians = great ratings!

I haven’t watched Grey’s Anatomy since they killed off the lesbian story to kowtow to the MiniVan Majority. Clearly I’m in the minority. And the MiniVan always wins, continuing the recent trend and perpetuating what’s becoming the truth: Good taste is dead. But bad taste makes more money. Full Story

Please… please don’t suck. Like, you’re so amazing now because you make movies. And that is SO great. But there’s always the beginning. And the beginning was the best. The beginning was the Bluth. And the Bluths were killed too soon. But now they have new life. And you are apparently the only hold out. Full Story

Expected to be a major blockbuster over the holiday season – because what we need over the holiday season is to see a doomsday movie! – promotion is just kicking off now for The Day the Earth Stood Still with Keanu Reeves and Jennifer Connelly who has been out of the spotlight for quite some time. Full Story

The cast of Twilight dressed up for In Style. What I said in my movie review about Rob Pattinson as Edward arriving at school in sunglasses announcing his new status as Bella’s boyfriend – this photo of him with Kellan Lutz pretty much captures it. Full Story

John and Emily and the Buffalo Mozzarella Test

The internets are buzzing that John Krasinski and Emily Blunt are dating. It originated from Star Magazine. Repeat: it originated from Star Magazine. So they were at the same party one night and maybe approached the bar five minutes apart? Anything is possible, and it could totally happen once a year that Star nails a story, but the prudent thing to do would be to wait for another report, non? But John and Emily would indeed me amazing. Full Story

Am about to have a very smug moment. If you can’t stand it, click away quickly. Wasn’t intending on writing about the New York Times piece titled “Angelina Jolie’s Carefully Orchestrated Image” because, well, why is this news? But I keep getting the emails so… Go through the archives of this blog and you will find that message repeated repeatedly: when it comes to the Pitts, they are the masters of the game. Full Story

Gerry for Kylie?

Have these two been linked yet? Clearly the words “economic crisis” don’t exist for the folks at the Atlantis Palm Resort and Palm Jumeirah in Dubai. Some say they spent $20 million alone on travel arrangements for celebrities. And it was an eclectic celebrity mix too. Even the rather low key and elusive Chris Tucker showed up. Full Story

Lilo & Sam: Dust-up in Dubai

At the huge party in Dubai last night, the grand opening of Atlantis, The Palm Resort and the Palm Jumeirah (crazy amounts of money thrown around, holy f-ck) I’m told  that Lindsay Lohan and Samantha Ronson got into a HUGE argument at 5am and their screaming match quickly turned physical as both girls were seen pushing each other around, unable to take their disagreement behind closed doors. Full Story

Winona Ryder collapsed the other day on a flight from LA to London and was met at Heathrow by ambulance. Her people insist that the story was entirely exaggerated. That she felt sh-tty but then recovered and begged off about the hospital but the airline insisted anyway and it turned into this thing. British gossips however report that she had suffered from an overdose of tranquilisers. Full Story
