Dear Gossips,

Something Britney was indeed brewing! As announced yesterday afternoon, the VMAs will have a Chicken Fried opening, and while Britney is confirmed not to be performing in the conventional sense, our girl has always had a flair for the theatrical. On Sunday night, there is nothing else but the VMAs…a lthough if you ask the egomaniacal Pip, he’ll tell you that the entire universe will revolve around his William Rast presentation the same night in New York.

Fashion week, TIFF, MTV… after a long, dry summer, gossip is getting moist again, led by the Republican party’s Vice Presidential nominee and MiniVan Majority-courting Sarah Palin who is receiving the kind of smutty coverage from mainstream respectable news outlets usually reserved for proper celebrities. Everyone speaks smut…do you LOVE it, or do you LOVE it?

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

It's not just Russell Crowe who has anger issues...only he was stupid enough to beat down a dude who didn't have to survive in the business. This ferocious lady who in these circles has always been known to be a difficult bitch keeps her attacks, with a few exceptions (like if you make the mistake of not getting out of her way quickly enough at the airport), restricted to those who have to work around her. Full Story

The Parent Pimp Handbook

Lainey Posted by Lainey at September 4, 2008 09:20:39 September 4, 2008 09:20:39

As you know, Lynne Spears wrote a tell-all complete with juicy details on Britney’s plummet called Through The Storm: A Real Tale Of Fame And Family In A Tabloid World. Details from her memoirs have now been leaked – nothing that would shock you, all things considered, except the tragic reality that her recollections won’t serve as a valid explanation so much as a roadmap for every other exploitative parent out there who thinks she has a Britney/Miley enrolled in pre-school. Full Story

If motherhood is so rewarding, and what she’s been waiting for her entire life, why is it that there is no evidence of motherhood in her home? Particularly accessories. Pottery Barn doesn’t sell baby bottles. Which could be why she insists on banning them from the house? How does she feed her child when there are no bottles in the house? Well… it’s because she doesn’t feed her child. Full Story
