Dead Eyes, Faux Glow, and a Perm Request

Katie Holmes last Thursday with her owner at the Lions for Lambs premiere – am all over the dress but she’s totally overmade. Too much blush? Or foundation? Makes her look old, ages a fresh face…and perhaps that’s the point. Otherwise, next to the GMD, she’d look like his much younger sister. Full Story

The GMD trotted out all his friends last Thursday for the LA premiere of Lions for Lambs. Among them, David Beckham, and as you can see from the expressions on both Katie’s and Tom’s faces, Becks is definitely ballsdown their favourite. See how Katie absolutely glows looking into his eyes? And see how Tom can’t take his own eyes off Victoria’s husband – coveting him, wanting him, undressing him with his Xenu imagination… Strange the Cruises don’t look like that at each other, non? Haven"t seen Katie this happy, in fact, for over 2 years! source Full Story

At Hogwarts with Harry

Harry Potter & the Order of the Phoenix comes out on DVD this week in the UK and on December 11th everywhere else – very cool special features. I even cried during the 43 minute behind the scenes documentary when they talk about how love saves Harry. Sob. To promote the DVD release, journalists were invited to interview members of the cast – who are now working on the Half Blood Prince – on the set of the new film. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

When did it become OK to go “ho” for Halloween? What once was “scary” has now become “skanky” with Ebola and Chicken Fried leading the way. All class.

And then there’s Heather Mills. Just a day after her media blitz, during which she again proclaimed victim status and likened herself to Princess Diana, comes word that she’s in possession of an audio tape that proves Sir Paul abused his first wife Linda.

Stella McCartney is going to lose her sh-t.

The existence of the alleged tape was leaked several months ago – just one in a series of leaks coming out of Heather’s court filings, miraculously landing in the hands of the British press. Conveniently enough, “unnamed witnesses” claim that Heather played the tape (recorded secretly mid-argument with her ex husband) yesterday when the cameras weren’t rolling during one of her interviews…

In other words, she was at a tv or radio station, with dozens of journalists present, and she played a tape incriminating Paul as a wife beater, and somehow only “unnamed witnesses” were present for the hearing?

Every reporter lives for the big get, the big story, the big kill. And yet none of them seized the chance to break this sh-t open? Because British journalists don’t love scandal?

And how about the hypocrisy? Phil Hall was former editor of a tabloid called News of the World – you may have heard of it? One of the tabloids at which she raged yesterday for slandering her name? How conveniently hypocritical.

The thing is, that slag is so crazy not even a former tabloid editor will work with her now. Mr Hall resigned from her team over Heather’s decision to go postal on television explaining “We are still mates but I am not working with her any more. Yesterday she said she wanted to do this TV campaign attacking newspapers, but I have a good relationship with newspapers and my business depends on feeding that good relationship. She wanted me to orchestrate this campaign and make calls to newspapers but I have got friends and mates in national newspapers and it didn"t seem right to make those calls and attack them”.

So Heather Mills was repped by a dude whose job it was to “feed good relationships” to the papers…coincidence or conspiracy?

Bitch… please!

Thursday, blogging all day, check back often for fresh smut…and a cute couple goes trick or treating. Details coming up.

Yours in gossip,

PS. To Kim – 40 is the new 30. Happy Birthday and let’er rip in Miami!

PPS. Quick programming note: there will be no column tomorrow (Friday November 2nd). As a reporter for eTalk, I have only once begged for an assignment – to cover the Harry Potter Order of the Phoenix junket in June. I begged again and again it was for Harry – am off to London for the Harry Potter 5 DVD junket (it comes out in December) and will be interviewing the kids ON THE SET of the sixth movie! Flying out late tonight Vancouver time, will not arrive til afternoon Friday in London. As such, won’t have a chance to post. However, a full report is coming Monday. Sorry for the inconvenience… Only Harry Potter could take me away from gossip. Please forgive? Thank you, love you, owe you…

Not that you need any more reason to love him, not that it’s necessary to defend why he’s Lifetime as opposed to Freebie Five but still…why pass up an opportunity to adore Johnny Depp? Currently starting promoting for Sweeney Todd Johnny was asked by Entertainment Weekly about his daughter’s illness earlier this year. Full Story

Earlier this week, Rumer Willis talked about being famous and opened a can of sh-t all over her own ass. The good news – Rumer has landed another post on Us Weekly’s website. The bad news – the post is poll asking visitors whether or not Rumer constitutes “famous”. Full Story

Radiohead laid down the gauntlet with In Rainbows both creatively and strategically, now Coldplay is expected to drop their 4th album by summer 2008. But where the band’s first two releases earned long-lasting affection, their last effort X+Y fell far short after time, even with their most hardcore fans. Full Story

Maroon 5’s Adam Levine as Brad from Fight Club for Halloween, pretty much pissing on Pitt’s legacy. As if. As if a helium-voiced little douche could come close to the quiveration. Maybe, just maybe, if he could actually perform live. But as it so happens, Adam’s ball-less screeches fall far short of the hotness, though his ego is still inflated from f&cking Jessica Simpson last year. Full Story

After making out with Ashley Olsen two nights in a row, Lance Armstrong turned up at the Roberto Cavalli Halloween party on Wednesday looking kinda stylin’. All over the longer darker coif and the suit, though the shoes are way too “straight dude” but then again, an athlete from Texas probably can’t rock a Beckham/Ford pointed toe, non? Always a player, now a well dressed one… He really is perfect for Jennifer Aniston. Full Story

Few things are more delicious than Euro Cheese. But Euro Designer Cheese is a whole other level of amusement. Roberto Cavalli – do you love him, or do you LOVE him? Cavalli is currently on a major pimp tour – not only promoting his own line at H&M but also pushing out a new vodka range (???) called “Roberto Cavalli Vodka”. Full Story

Reese & Jakey Halloween

Now Reese would NEVER slut it up for Halloween. Reese and Jakey went trick-or-treating in full costume last night with her kids in Brentwood– she as a witch, he as a gorilla. Apparently the two were deliriously happy, holding hands and flirting and kissing and nuzzling and still desperately trying to save their movie and the DVD in a few months? Reese loves campaigning with her family – she earned an Oscar that way, though I wonder if this doesn’t sting just a little for Ryan Phillippe. Full Story
