Chicken Fried Farewell?

Britney’s much ballyhooed appearance on How I Met Your Mother last night – a stroke of casting genius. There were people (like me) who don’t even watch that show who made sure to set the DVR. I tuned in for Britney, I came out with a major hard-on for Sarah Chalke. Still… it’s true: Britney is a booming business. Full Story

Thoughts on The Hills

Many of you have emailed recently about Us Weekly and Janice Min’s fascination with the girls of The Hills – cover after cover, week after week… what’s the story? Obviously the premiere was last night, and judging by the buzz online and among my own friends leading up to it – The Hills are alive. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Easter is a big deal for our Polish family. And so, last night at our 10 course Easter feast, as I ate away all the hard work my trainer has imposed upon my body, our nephew Noah – 7 years old – interrupted my gluttony by asking me for a job.

He said he needed to start working because when he’s 15, he’ll be too busy with his girlfriend.

Is this a reflection of the Miley/Lindsay/HSM generation? That at the ripe old age of 15, the presumed preoccupation will be dating and romance and not much else? By the way, Noah also said that he “hates Britney Spears because she wants her picture taken all the time”. He followed this up by posing like a practised celebrity for my blackberry.

Noah’s career aspirations and musings on Britney were then interrupted by Veronica’s performance. Our 5 year old niece proceeded to entertain us by delivering a moving rendition of Vanessa Hudgen’s Gotta Go My Own Way from High School Musical, complete with facial expressions and heartfelt gasps. It was only too bad Zac Efron wasn’t around to overact. Have you seen the video?

Happily I was able to sing along too. I have this job, and therefore all of you, to thank for that.

10 year old Oliver finally brought us back to earth by engaging us all in a game of living room hockey.

But the point was made: Gossip is insidious, see? Even on holy holidays.

The Top 5 List of Smutty Break-Ups was updated this weekend and will reach its conclusion later today. Click here for an unromantic review.

Things to look forward to this week: a new riddle, a very, very generous Juno Swag Bag giveaway, Calgary party details, and more embedded clues.

Monday – live blogging all day, check back often! And I posted on Friday - SCROLL DOWN!!!

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

PS. Daniel Craig is not having staffing issues.

The poster for American Teen, the much hyped documentary due out July 25th that was the toast of Sundance this year, examining the lives of five students at an Indiana high school. To promote the project, they decided to channel John Hughes. Full Story

The Gift That’s Too Tight

Eva Longoria keeps yapping about her pregnancy rumours but the thing is… I can’t remember any pregnancy rumours about Eva Longoria. I just remember her talking about pregnancy rumours. Which is probably how the rumours got started. Does a rumour constitute a rumour if you keep debunking the same rumour you started? Mindtwister. Full Story

Pip Gives

Justin Timberlake dropped in in lowkey fashion at the Memphis Rock ‘n’ Soul Museum and the Memphis Music Foundation on Thursday donating $100,000 to each organisation in support of local programs encouraging young people in their music studies. Unlike his famewhore of a girlfriend, Pip made his gifts without much fanfare, popping in and out quickly, presumably because he’s been shooting long days and night on his new movie The Open Road. Full Story

Flying with The Rossum

Seriously…how many sick bags would you need if you found yourself on an airplane flying next to Emmy Rossum? Fortunately for Angela H, she was able to hold back her nausea. Unfortunately for Angela H, The Rossum ended up destroying her magazine. Here’s how it went it down: Angela was a on a flight last week from Houston to Orange County browsing through the latest issue of Elle. Full Story

America For America

Understatement: There is a serious shortage of positive role modelling in young Hollywood. With the likes of Lilo and Ebola and Britney running around, skeezing it up in an effort to become the next Pamela Anderson, how refreshing to see someone like America Ferrera not shaving her pootie and putting it up for consumption. Full Story

How Could He Resist?

Page Six today ran an item about John Mayer’s internet proclivities. Ever the famewhore, who cannot refrain from blessing the world with his words, John replied on his own blog. Almost immediately. A screen cap is attached. Is John Mayer capable of turning the other? Or is he too addicted to the stank of his own sh*t? Thing is, this’d be kinda funny coming from George Clooney. Full Story

Shame Screw in Blue

See what I mean about Ed Westwick being a Shame F&ck? Here he is last week on the set of Gossip Girl in a blue suit – the cheese face, the long torso and the too short legs, the horribly unattractive gait, and the worst… his turned-out feet. Full Story
