The Princess in Venice

Lainey Posted by Lainey at September 4, 2008 07:14:39 September 4, 2008 07:14:39

The British press are saying her dress was over the top. You? In Venice, like Cannes, there seems to be no limit to the overdress on the carpet. Toronto is a different story – it’ll be unlikely to see something so dramatic. On Anne Hathaway last night at the Rachel Getting Married gala premiere, I don’t know, I kinda liked it. Full Story

The Man Show is back

Never met a straight dude who didn’t like Entourage. Like it’s a handshake or something. Even if they don’t like it they have to like it. The show’s fifth season begins on Sunday on HBO and on TMN and Movie Central in Canada. Full cast and even Marky Wahlberg turned out on the carpet last night in New York. Full Story

Jen right at home

Jennifer Aniston continued to shoot for 30 Rock last night in New York looking healthy and relaxed, glowing on set, clearly reveling in being back on tv. That’s what coming home is all about. Jen plays a stalker on the show – something about being obsessed with Alec Baldwin. Easy, non? Like a continuous transfer: Brad to Angie to John to Alec. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

My mother came to the hotel last night, as she always does when I’m in Toronto, and, as she also always does, brought me a basketful of soup, fruit, juice, and too much of herself. A short visit turned into 90 minutes of ironing and scolding – me for having wrinkly clothes just out of a suitcase and the hotel for providing a sh*tty iron that’s beneath her laundering talents. She’ll be back tonight, using her own key, with her industrial press. Just in time for the start of the festival tomorrow. Joy.

So…did you go back to West Beverly? Thoughts? I’ve yet to see - early reviews have been promising but far from glowing. Only… I hear there was totally not enough Brenda. Unacceptable!

And after a few days in Vegas, Britney Spears returned to LA yesterday – they’ve denied a performance at the VMAs but word on the street is that something Britney is brewing. Keep you posted.

Wednesday – am online all day, check back often.

Yours in gossip,


B’s Iconic Ambitions

Beyonce on the cover of the new Marie Claire UK with a tiny little waist and inside the pages of the magazine again with a tiny little waist. She concedes though, unlike those other lying skinny bitches, that it’s hard work balancing those curves, insisting before arriving at the photo shoot that there be ‘no chips, no candy, no desserts, no junk food, no fried food’ available anywhere on set. Full Story

The Duchess in blue

People keep saying Keira Knightley is too thin. Can’t imagine why. She’s, like, so totally healthy looking, don’t you think? That said, I LOVE this dress. For her. It’s gorgeous. London premiere of The Duchess is happening right now – Keira brought her bones along with her pout and was kind enough to sign autographs for fans without cussing them out. Full Story

Michael Phelps has officially been anointed. He has met the Mighty Opes! Oprah’s Olympic special was taped today – have already heard from audience members lucky enough to be admitted into church … by all accounts it’s a great show. Another must-watch season opener from the most powerful person in the world. Full Story
