A new review. Life on the Refrigerator Door By Alice Kuipers I had heard mid-summer about six weeks before its Canadian release date that Alice Kuipers’ novel was the buzz of the season among the “literati”. Word is there was a bidding war, word is international publishers and editors were losing their sh-t and very keen to acquire the rights. Full Story

I wonder – do the paps hang out at church? They must do because here’s Bridget Moynahan, who wants all to know that Tom Brady wronged her, dutifully at church yesterday carving out a new image: devout single mother walking with the Lord. Do you smell Denise Richards? I smell Denise and maybe Shelf Ass’s rep for good measure. Full Story

Atonement is a beautiful film. I loved every minute. Especially since it could have been a disaster given all the pressure of adapting it from such a brilliant book. Thankfully the movie is outstanding – wonderful cinematography, wonderful performances. Another winner from Keira Knightley who has managed to tame her pout and answer the call as one of the most talented actresses of her generation. Full Story

I’d hobble around on crutches for him too. As you’ve probably heard, George Clooney and his flavour of the month Sarah Larsen were involved in a motorcycle accident on Friday. He suffered a rib fracture, she some cuts on her face and a broken foot. But still they hit the town last night night in NYC. Full Story

Only Britney could reduce a story this “SHOCKING!” into something so mundane. So her bodyguard, claiming he’s acting on the best interests of Britney’s two boys, has come forward, not only making a statement the divorce court but also selling his statement to the News of the World and yapping about his statement to anyone who will listen including the Today Show this morning. Full Story

So VB went out without her spanx corset the other day and while I’m not saying she’s my size, she also certainly doesn’t look quite the emaciated plastic femmebot we know and love. I think I actually see a small but sexy love handle and even some sucking in. Can you imagine? Victoria Beckham has to suck in? Victoria Beckham isn’t concave without breath intake? Am floored. Full Story

Can’t get enough of this sh-t. Nothing more delicious than a shameless bitch. Mariah Carey at the VH1 Save the Music Foundation gala last week required the attendance of not one, not two, but NINE assistants to address her every need, including adjusting her breast tape, periodically brushing away stray hairs, and having heated hot rollers on the ready just in case a section of hair needed some more body. Full Story

Check it out – Little Sci with her grandparents (from her mother’s side) in Germany. Looks like the GMD is actually granting them some access. She is seriously the cutest ever. Meanwhile her parents made yet another dressed up appearance at dinner the other night. It’s so old school I kinda love it. Full Story

She’s crazy…but still, am impressed. Doesn’t sound like something a spoiled diva would do, does it? Charlotte Church opted for the homebirth on Thursday. Her daughter, little Ruby, arrived the new old fashioned way with media outlets reporting Charlotte had two midwives with her for the ride and did not have to leave the comfort of her own home. Full Story

Valentina Paloma Pinault. Now that’s a good name. Salma Hayek and fiancé Francois Pinault are now the proud parents of a baby girl born some time after Thursday in LA. Interesting, non? That everyone not from LA is giving birth in LA? Salma, Naomi Watts, Isla Fisher looks like she’ll go into labour there too… Maybe the doctors in Cali are second to none. Full Story
