Ben & Casey at the Salon

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 29, 2008 06:11:02 May 29, 2008 06:11:02

Ben and Casey Affleck were in London yesterday promoting Gone Baby Gone and also found time to drop in at The Return of the Salon hosted by Esquire Magazine held at the Sanderson Hotel. My only memory of the Sanderson Hotel is from last summer. We went there for drinks while working on the Diana Concert special, a group of us on the patio, when this woman (a full blown adult) stood up in a hurry after drinking too much and literally, no joke, sprayed puke across our table. Full Story

May 29, 2008 – Smutty Shout-Outs

Happy 28th Birthday Lori, perhaps the only woman to emerge uninfected from a company-mandated handshake with Hollywood Ebola. Share your secret with the world! As for you Lisa… can’t say I’m with you on the Paul Rudd love (there’s a weird head/body proportion thing going on there that doesn’t work for me) but just for you – am attaching new photos taken yesterday of Paul shooting a movie with Jason Segal called I Love You, Man. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

The healing power of good hair…

Haven’t had good hair since breaking my arm. Aside from no golf, one of the worst downsides to a gimpy arm is that I can’t wash my own hair. As such, my husband has been washing my hair. And it’s really not as sexy as it sounds. Because I spend the entire time fighting with him about how much product to use. He squirts out a dime sized dollop on his palm and thinks it’s enough. Next I get a lecture about wasting shampoo. The next 10 minutes is about me pleading with him not to be so cheap. At the end of a very unsatisfying scrub he’ll douse my head in too much conditioner. For some reason it hasn’t been drying the same either.

Bad hair leads to bad everything else: felt dumpy, didn’t want to get dressed, didn’t even want to exfoliate. I normally love exfoliating. But looking cute seemed impossible.

Then, on the advice of the ladies in my book club on Monday night, I went for a blow out yesterday. Totally made my life.

It is the power of good hair. Good hair can move mountains. Good hair could end conflict. Jennifer Aniston has good hair every day. And still she always manages to find something to cry about. This has always confounded me.

SJP has good hair often too. She had great hair last night on the pink carpet at the NYC premiere of Sex & the City. Photos to follow.

And don’t forget, Kim Cattrall is joining us live in studio at eTalk today to answer audience questions and dish on the movie. To be part of the exclusive experience, email [email protected] or call 1-866-460-4797.

Here’s Kim in Vivienne Westwood last night.

Wednesday – am posting all day, check back often to get caught up!

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

I Miss Her Already

People Magazine is going ahead with it too… that means it MUST be true. Or that George Clooney is ok with us thinking it’s true. Either way, Sarah Larson is not spending the summer in Milano. No Como. George is a gentleman though. Full Story

George & Sarah Over: Fact or Faux?

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 28, 2008 13:04:00 May 28, 2008 13:04:00

Anything is possible, it could very well be true. And even though it’s not impossible for In Touch to get it right, the fact that it comes from In Touch Weekly is suspect enough. Still… anything is possible. Another problem though is that the magazine says George Clooney and Sarah Larson are done. Full Story

Granny Freeze Conspiracy Theories

She might be Australia’s princess but not all Aussies are enamoured with Granny Freeze. Turns out the smutmongering is in overdrive Down Under about Nicole Kidman’s curious bump and her crazy botox. The speculation is delicious. Here are my two favourites: 1. Gran’s sister, the very fertile Antonia, is apparently keeping a very low profile. Full Story

Posh’s Perfect Day

She posed and pouted at the Chateau Marmont for a photo shoot – see attached. Then her son Cruz decided he just had to drop by Marc Jacobs. So they went shopping. Afterwards, he rewarded her with a trip to Pink Taco during which she sipped at water, tried not to breathe in the heady fumes of food, and watched him eat. Full Story

Granny Freeze vs Xenu?

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 28, 2008 08:07:07 May 28, 2008 08:07:07

A glimmer of hope for Nicole Kidman. Perhaps we can love her again… Is she finally telling Xenu to shove it up his sparkly ass? Is she finally willing to declare war against the GMD? Sigh… Before you get too excited... probably not. The following report comes from Heat Magazine which is notoriously always full of sh*t. Full Story

The It Couple in New York

After giving each other hickeys and jumping on the lesbian love train last week in Cannes, Lindsay Lohan and Samantha Ronson were in New York last night and the drama was as hot as ever. Lilo apparently put in some face time unwillingly with her mother and her sister for a while, then dashed away as quickly as possible, and spent the rest of the night screening Dina’s phone calls. Full Story

Katie Can’t Play

Best rumour of the day… OK, second best. Especially considering what’s coming up next about Nicole Kidman. Stay tuned. Probably full of sh&t but you love it anyway. Apparently Katie Holmes wanted desperately to have a night out at the Sex & the City premiere last night, especially since all kindsa fashion people were attending. Full Story
