Dear Gossips,

What’s up New York!?!?!?

It was epic! EPIC!!!

We were on the field at the Superbowl last night as eTalk had access on the sidelines - standing next to the New England tunnel during the team introductions, I swear I felt Tedy Bruschi’s sweat hit my arm when he rushed the field. But I told my producer Michelle right off the get, as soon as we saw Tom Brady … He cut his hair. Bad move.

Watch eTalk to see me frolicking on the field at the Superbowl, making snow angels in confetti during the Giants’ celebration, and crazy moments from the end zone – all that tonight on the show.

And also on the show tonight … finally, me and a son of Xenu! An encounter with John Travolta! Funniest sh*t ever. Details coming…

The Freebie 5 has been updated. John Krasinski in person? May-jah quiver. More on that later.

Monday – blogging on the fly headed back to Vancouver. Check back often for Superbowl smut. I’ve a 5 hour transfer and will be posting the whole time. Refresh!

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

PS. Happy Birthday Melanie T in Victoria – all the way from someone who adores you in Squamish.

PPS. And Happy Birthday also to Holly and Kelsey, cousins who share a 26th birthday today.

PPPS. To Lynn in Costa Rica and now Zara too – congratulations!

PPPPS. Just As She Is is not about Eric Bana. Not Tom Selleck. Not Ashton Kutcher. Not Eric Dane. Not Matthew Broderick.

Sexy House

Ok now I get it. See I don’t watch House. As such, I’ve no appreciation of the hotness of his character and by extension, the hotness of the actor who has so brilliantly created him. Having seen Hugh Laurie take the piss at awards shows however, his sense of humour is already well known. Full Story

Supergay at the Superbowl

John Travolta hosted some party on Saturday night in Scottsdale while the rest of us were at the Mondrian. It was the CAA and CTV bash that night, ran into Spike Lee and several others in the lobby and throughout dinner at Asia de Cuba, and George Clooney was apparently holding court at a private affair across the courtyard. Full Story

Junior’s Supergrowth Super Sperm

So here’s the latest “candid” photo of Tori Spelling and her husband Kevin Federline Junior out for a family walk and showing off a remarkably large baby bump. Remarkably large because just a month ago, she was somehow photographed in full maquillage working out kick boxing with her goldigger. Full Story

Krasinski In Person

Lainey Posted by Lainey at February 4, 2008 08:36:29 February 4, 2008 08:36:29

The best hotness is the kind that takes you by surprise. Sure - he"s cute in that college backpack kinda way but - at least for me on tv - not in that rip your panties passion. Until you see him in person. In person, cute becomes quiver. In person there"s a quiet confidence that gets real sexy real fast. Full Story

Loving Alicia Keys

Lainey Posted by Lainey at February 4, 2008 06:35:16 February 4, 2008 06:35:16

Am so in love with Alicia Keys. Interviewed her yesterday on the red carpet at Ryan Seacrest’s party before her pre-game performance. There are those who are fake and phony. They give canned answers and contrived reactions. Still there are others who are too far up their own asses to bother being interesting… like Laurence Fishburn. Full Story

Worse than Ken Paves

Lainey Posted by Lainey at February 4, 2008 06:10:37 February 4, 2008 06:10:37

Or maybe it is Ken Paves. It certainly looks tacky enough to be, non? What the FACK is wrong with Katherine Heigl’s head??? This sh*t hasn’t worked beyond the trailer park since 1983. And in combination with the red dress and the reptile print shoes – it’s tacky ass all over, though I bet you some rich ass 3rd wife here in Scottsdale thinks Katie’s ensemble is the very definition of style. Full Story

The Second Coming in Santa Barbara

Lainey Posted by Lainey at February 4, 2008 05:46:36 February 4, 2008 05:46:36

The Pitts took their porn to Santa Barbara this weekend as Angelina Jolie was honoured by the festival for her body of work. Of course we all only care about the speculation surrounding the Second Coming – a riddle Brad and Angelina clearly and deliberately enjoy spinning. Once again, as was the case at the SAGs last week, Angie arrived in a bump-covering ugly ass dress. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Posted late in the day yesterday, please scroll down for missed articles.

Busted up my knee at the NFL Experience yesterday trying pathetically to kick a field goal. Was being coached by my colleague Jesse Palmer for eTalk etalk.ctv.ca – remember him? Jesse is a former NY Giants back up QB and is now a commentator for ESPN and TSN but of course is best known for being a “Bachelor”. Totally gorgeous, now a special reporter with eTalk, my partner for the weekend, and we were shooting a segment for the show airing today with Jesse putting me through a few NFL drills.

I managed to get the ball 4 feet off the ground and off to the left. Wicked. But seriously, if you ever get a chance, the NFL Experience is the funnest place ever.

Last night – P.Diddy/Daddy/Sean John’s Super Thursday party, details to follow but Tommy Lee up close and personal? It’s frightening. And he smells like fish. Not kidding. As soon as he arrived, it was salmon and tuna sashimi. Also… Julian McMahon. Sexy, sexy, sexy beast but, um, might want to work on the personal space invasion issues. More on that later and thoughts on Vanessa Minnillo in the flesh.

Friday – online all day, check back often…and have a great weekend!

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

PS. To Cheryl Z – a very happy birthday from Heather L!

PPS. Just As She Is: not Alan Rickman, not Antonio Banderas, not Johnny Depp, not Keith Urban who isn’t even in the same neighbourhood as squeaky clean, though the thought of a Sapphic Granny Freeze kinda makes my life. Finally, it’s not Will Smith. Entirely possible, of course, but not the purse you’re looking for.

PPPS. Happy Birthday Laney! You and Judson have been reading a long time. And our husbands both have the same initials. Not that that"s particularly interesting... Big hug!

 

A New View of Nessa

Some people are way better looking in person than in photos. Petra Nemcova is a good example. Not that she doesn’t look good in photos, only in person, she’s more than just a freakishly beautiful, garden variety supermodel. Vanessa Minnillo is also of this category. And you know already my thoughts on her pageant fashion pageant fashion Full Story
