Surprise! Just a day after news broke that Denise Richards is once again accusing Charlie Sheen of being a pervert and trying to position herself as the better parent, all while the financial terms of their divorce hang in the balance, the paps miraculously captured her playing and laughing with her daughter Sam. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

I don’t like Justin Timberlake. But the Pip deserves his due. Killed it on Oprah yesterday. As usual, very impressive…the performance, I mean. The boy is like Beckham: no talking preferred.

Still…that JT is a true artist is indisputable. More than enormous talent, it’s also the versatility. Whether grooving with Snoop and Fiddy or grinding with Madonna or harmonising with Reba McIntyre, he always belongs in that musical moment. And unlike that punk ass poseur Avril Lavigne, Pip actually does write for himself and everyone else these days. If only a little humility, non?

But here’s the thing - Justin could totally save Britney Spears. And he would too. If only to fuel his massive ego…can you imagine? After boasting about saving the Grammy telecast and bragging about increasing McDonald’s share prices by almost 25%, can you imagine how much bigger Pip’s head would grow if he reached out and put life into the lifeless?

I hope and pray.

And one final note re: Justin on Oprah – who are those women??? The women who were NOT teenagers. The women who were near 30, if not older. The women ACTING OUT THE LYRICS to his song? Who are you? Who does this??? Who does this and is NOT embarrassed?

Justin sang: Should"ve known better when you came around that you were going to make me cry and they panned to some broad bouncin’ around in her seat, making a crying “boo hoo” motion with her right hand… I promptly lost my sh-t and had to hit rewind on the PVR. Having a dance party over a great beat I can totally understand. Singing along to a wicked jam is cool too. But ACTING OUT THE LYRICS???

Stop. This is why Oprah stopped being relatable.

Yours in gossip,


PS. To Bess in Santa Barbara who just got engaged to her beloved Matt… Congratulations! On both counts! Much love and all the best.

As hilarious as this is – Jessica Simpson trying to act – I’d STILL take it any day over Rossum. Yes indeed. Jessica Simpson, tranny or not, trumps Emmy Rossum. So here’s Jess at work on the set of Major Movie Star yesterday. Full Story

Quiver your loins over this – a casual Clooney in NYC. Look how he wears his pants. The Clooney wears pants well. Very, very well. And he wears salt and pepper even better. Seriously, he’s so handsome I can hardly breathe. So if Jakey G is to be the heir to the George, the pants issue really needs some work, non? Time to get rid of that bubble butt. Full Story

Shameless self promotion for a good cause… click away if you don’t care. Mendocino is celebrating its 20th anniversary and to commemorate the occasion the retailer has launched a limited edition t-shirt series in stores now featuring 10 Canadian female personalities photographed by celebrity photographer Dustin Rabin to support The Jocelyn Foundation, created in memory of Canadian Jocelyn Juriansz, raising awareness and promoting constructive and open dialogue concerning violence against women through education, support and fundraising initiatives. Full Story

At the GQ bash two nights ago - B darkened her hair. I love it. I think she looks great. I also thought at first that it was Meagan Good (attached) who is the total hotness…have you seen Stomp the Yard? I watched it twice back to back, then I kept the dvd and refused to return it to Blockbuster – that’s how much I love Stomp the Yard. Full Story

Wow. Robin Wright Penn the other night at the premiere of Into the Wild – she looks unbelievable, non? That body, those legs – love, love, love. Am surprised their relationship has made it this far, this long. There have long been reports of volatile behaviour and there was some suggestion of straying on her part a few years ago…never substantiated. Full Story

She might be a demon bitch but Jessica Alba is also undeniably beautiful. Which is why it’s so tragic that she insists on dressing like Barbara Walters. Apparently she wants to be taken seriously. If that’s the case, maybe a movie like Good Luck Chuck isn’t the best of career decisions…I’m just saying. Full Story

My cousin Cat hates when I post hot picks of Becks. She finds it difficult to concentrate, she emails me to complain that she gets distracted, she has to ban herself from my site until after work hours, but even then she can’t help herself. And can you blame her? Here’s David Beckham the other day picking up an iced coffee in a beautifully tailored suit. Full Story

Or any semblance of a career, Denise Richards’s only two moves are A. to call up the paps whenever a moment with her girls comes up and B. to continue to portray herself the victim against Charlie Sheen. Hungry for sympathy, starving for attention, Denise is at it again. This time it’s a repeat of the same allegations she levelled against Charlie when they initially separated – something about him demonstrating deviant behaviour – accusations he vehemently denied but that were mysteriously leaked to the media and never substantiated. Full Story
