Dear Gossips,

Go Uno!!!

For the first time ev-er year in history of the Westminster Dog Show, a beagle – a regular, everyday dog, “the people’s” dog as opposed to an arty dog – took home Best in Show to a standing thunderous ovation at Madison Square Garden, also unprecedented.

Not gossip and totally lame, yes. But I have a 15 inch beagle too.

And it’s officially official – no more strike. Big press conference expected today re: Oscar presenters. Word is, the show this year will be bigger and more over the top than ever. So have you filled out your ballot?

It’s the annual contest thanks to Mercedes-Benz and, as mentioned yesterday, almost $2,000 worth of killer prizing on the line, including a Miu Miu bag!

Wednesday – blogging all day, keep coming back.

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

PS. Justin Timberlake does not need good help. He has his mother. Besides…he can sing and dance but the Pip canNOT act. And Rachel McAdams is not blowing her  heartache away on holiday.

Uma Glow & Colin Firth

There was a little something extra in Uma’s face tonight in London for the premiere of The Accidental Husband co-starring Colin Firth and Jeffrey Dean Morgan. Uma and Colin – great onscreen pairing, non? Me likey. Unfortunately he probably won’t get the girl. The Accidental Husband is about a power woman in her safe power relationship with her safe Steady Man (Colin) who has to choose between her boring life and the exhilarating but unpredictable possibilities with The Wild Card (Morgan). Full Story

Chace Crawford and Leighton Meester of Gossip Girl are in Toronto today for the Virgin Mobile launch with Richard Branson. As mentioned last week, now that Blake Lively can’t style herself out of the Mall Closet, Leighton is now officially The One. And she is gorgeous. GORGEOUS! Look at that skin! And that smile. Full Story

Getting You To Friday…

Lainey Posted by Lainey at February 13, 2008 12:10:27 February 13, 2008 12:10:27

Does it seem like a long week? It’s been dragging on forever, non? Here’s a little treat to get you to Friday. Speaking of treats – Marcus had minor surgery 2 weeks ago and was doped up on morphine, knocked right out, sleeping under the covers in our bed. By mistake I said the word “treat” when deciding if I should order take out. Full Story

Even When He’s Not…

James McAvoy is f&cking hot. Hotter still because he married his brain mate just as his career was taking off. Anne-Marie Duff is an accomplished stage actress recently acclaimed for her performance as Joan of Arc in the National Theatre’s production of Saint Joan. Photo attached. In other words, James’s loins lust for the cerebral and mature. Full Story

Isla After Olive

It’s been four months since the arrival of baby Olive. Here’s Isla Fisher in New York last night for the premiere of Definitely, Maybe which according to advance preview audiences is adorable. Word is Isla has slimmed down quickly for her wedding. She was cute in an interview recently, when asked if she’ll invite her Wedding Crashers co-stars, she said she would not on purpose just to see if they’d end up crashing it anyway. Full Story

Christina & Max

Looks like People Magazine outbid the others for the first photos of Christina Aguilera with her baby Max. How much is that baby on the magazine cover? I wonder if she nurses him at home with a full face of makeup. Am now obsessed with seeing what Christina looks like these days without it caked on. Full Story

Madge the Director

Madonna makes her directorial debut at the Berlin Film Festival with the premiere of her movie Filth and Wisdom, about an aspiring Ukrainian actor who survives by cross dressing for a hetero clientele. Sounds promising. Here she is defying 50 at the photo call today. Reviews have yet to be published but let’s be thankful she’s not acting anymore, shall we? Madge’s trip to Germany marks yet another public event without Guy Ritchie who was also not by her side last week for her big Malawi Gucci affair. Full Story

Carpet Opposites

Lainey Posted by Lainey at February 13, 2008 08:55:49 February 13, 2008 08:55:49

Kate Hudson lit up the carpet in London last night at the Elle Style Awards, not because she’s blonde but because she simply pops. Kate Hudson – warm and fuzzy, fresh baked cookies and giggles. And super thin in white, though I gather from my email that the bump-obsessed have already pulled out the magnifying glasses to analyse her the burger she has in her belly. Full Story

Bar’s Real Curves

Lainey Posted by Lainey at February 13, 2008 08:24:54 February 13, 2008 08:24:54

A curvy model – can you believe it. No… but like a REAL curvy model. You know I love Gisele but it’s laughable when they characterise Gisele as curvy. Gisele is not curvy. Leo’s Bar Rafaeli on the other hand is legitimately curvy. Thin but curvy. And definitely something to grab on to. Full Story

Definitely Rachel Weisz

Lainey Posted by Lainey at February 13, 2008 00:00:00 February 13, 2008 00:00:00

Rachel Weisz was total gorgessity last night at the premiere of Definitely, Maybe in New York. Not sure what she’s wearing but it looks so good, I don’t blame her if she wants to keep it. In fact, she probably will keep it. Rachel is currently working on the film adaptation of The Lovely Bones. Full Story
