Sienna still has a friend

Thanks to her affair with Balthazar Getty, Sienna has become persona non grata in Los Angeles as Rosetta Getty’s powerful female network quickly mobilised against the other woman. At home in London though, Sienna still has friends. And she still has a friend in Keira Knightley. Here they are arriving hand in hand and bone to bone yesterday at the British Independent Film Awards in London. Full Story

No Spanx in NOLA

The Brange spent Thanksgiving in New Orleans but only allowed themselves to be photographed on Sunday when Angelina took Maddox shopping in the French quarter. As you can see, the Jolie has almost lost all her pregnancy weight. But having birthed the Chosen One and most recently the Holy Twins just 5 months ago, she doesn’t have rock hard abs. Full Story

For The Record

What’s the breakfast of champions for southern girls? According to Jamie Spears…it’s cheese grits! Perhaps the only amusing minute during 90 minutes of behind the scenes Britney. And at the very least, she seems to have finally found an assistant who actually cares about taking care of her which is more than can be said about most of the people who keep saying they care about her. Full Story

No eating disorder at the Geminis

Thank you for all of your emails re: Shenae Grimes at the Gemini Awards, all of you with remarks similar to the following: From Thomas T: Did you happen to see Shenae Grimes appearance at the Geminis? The poor girl definitely appeared to be more wired than a renovation done by Mike Holmes. She was practically vibrating. Full Story

Riggins at the Geminis

Taylor Kitsch came home to Canada on Friday for the Gemini Awards honouring achievements in Canadian television. Yay Project Runway Canada!!! About Taylor – here he is all cleaned up, looking slightly bewildered and uncomfortable, and completely unprepared for what’s about to hit him come Spring. Full Story

Chicken Fried X Factor

Lainey Posted by Lainey at December 1, 2008 06:08:28 December 1, 2008 06:08:28

Saturday night on X Factor – no variation on the routine, same sh-tty lipsynching, same lame choreography, and still technically inferior but the energy…there was a certain energy, an energy that has been building from Berlin to Paris and then London, an energy that comes from comfort perhaps, from owning a stage again, electrifying a crowd… She’s not there yet but it’s coming. Full Story

December 1, 2008 – Smutty Shout-Outs

To Sharon – congratulations on surviving your visit to Chibougamau! Children and flu and 8 hours of driving… you are a great friend to Mandy who appreciates your sacrifice! And for Carla who was not only front row Friday night at the John Legend show in Toronto but pulled up onstage by the man himself for a dirty dance! Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Wildly mixed reviews for Australia including enthusiastic praise from Roger Ebert and Variety, the Hollywood Reporter and the New York Times and on the other side, enthusiastic dislike from Entertainment Weekly, Rolling Stone, and USA Today. Needless to say, the critical dissention isn’t helping the movie at all.

Australia looks to be a flop in America, perhaps even around the world. At this point, it might even drop out of contention from the Oscar race which, actually, is kinda too bad.

Love Baz Luhrmann. Love the campy, overthetopness of a Baz Luhrmann feature. Australia is supposed to be campy and overthetop like that. In a sense then, that might work in Granny Freeze’s favour, like taking extremes to the next level. Will see Australia this weekend. Will you? Or will you be with the fangirls and fanmoms seeing Twilight for the 5th time. Don’t lie. I know you are.

Friday – am blogging all day until the radio. Am guesting on CBC On The Coast for three long hours (!) from 3pm to 6pm PT today. If you want to stream live, click here and choose “pacific”.

Have a great weekend!

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

Would You Rather: Rossum vs Diddy

Lainey Posted by Lainey at November 28, 2008 14:23:04 November 28, 2008 14:23:04

The most epic Would You Rather ever. Trust Hello Kitty to hire Emmy sodding Rossum to sell coffee. Of course. Only in Asia where they raise their girls as emotionally stunted stuffed toys could the Rossum be considered a pitch person. I’m sorry to start your weekend off this way. Truly I am. Because upon watching this you will, pardon the crass, feel anal raped by sugar. Full Story

Better crowd, better Britney

She performed in Paris today, for a much more enthusiastic audience than the stodgy Germans in Berlin and the result was a major improvement. Britney’s finding her comfort level. She looked happy. She looked hype. She still can’t lipsynch for sh-t and the same routine offered the same boring choreography, and she’s obviously not the most articulate piece of fried chicken but still… It’s getting better and tomorrow night it’s X Factor and next week it’s America. Full Story

Little Zuma and his brother`s patchwork jeans

Kingston Rossdale doesn’t get enough love here. I’m sorry for that. He deserves it. Because he just might be cuter than them all. Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale took their boys to the park yesterday for some family time. 3 month old Zuma looks like he’s chubbing out and nestled happily with mom on the bench while his brother romped around in an adorable pair of patchy jeans under a red striped shirt. Full Story
