Dear Gossips,

Sweet Xenu… did you see David Beckham on Leno last night? The man can wear a suit. And how. In fact, he can wear a suit so well, it makes up for that voice. Yes, it does!

Becks was teased about his Armani undies ad, he remembered to call it “soccer”, told the story – again! – about how he and Victoria met, how he wanted to marry her the first time he saw her on the telly, and… oh who the f*ck cares what else. He looked hot. That’s all.

Click here and here for the clips.

Calgary – tomorrow night at BLVD Lounge! See below for details. And thanks to the incomparable Cathy Downey at Grit Communications for making it all happen - a world class communications/marketing and public relations consultant based in Calgary who has been a lifesaver. Thank you, love you, owe you.

Wednesday – am here, am blogging…remember to refresh!

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

PS. Brittany Murphy is not off sick. Neither is Ellen Page.

PPS. Hilary Swank is not being held.

50 vs 50

Sharon Stone and Madonna were both born in 1958 – 50 years old this year. Who looks better? I’m fence-sitting this one out. Both are pretty fierce, although Sharon might be a little more postal. Here she is in Paris shopping with her dog today. She wears black jeans better than most. These bitches are redefining 50, non? She and Madonna and Demi Moore should make a documentary: plastic surgery success stories! Photos from Splashnewsonline.com Full Story

Matt Damon is shooting Green Zone right now in London – based on Rajiv Chandrasekaran’s Imperial Life in the Emerald City which is a fascinating read if you haven’t already. Matt and wife Luciana have been in England for several weeks now, seen often at Nobu, as he was the other night and graciously posed for and with paps. Full Story

His Best Moment in Years

The new Ryan Phillippe is a humourless cheating cheese dick… but on occasion there is a glimpse of undouchiness. Jimmy Kimmel seems to bring that out in a lot of people. It’s a great attribute. Ryan was on Kimmel last night and had to address the issue of a sex tape – the one that he made with Kimmel’s security guard Veatrice. Full Story

Madge on Sex, Becks, and Face

Another cover – Madonna is hittin’ hard to promote Hard Candy and after all these years, she is still interesting in an interview. New issue of UK Elle, Madonna discusses her marriage, her children, and her face, and as you would expect, is always good for a sound bite. Love that’s rough and tumble: "I had to marry a challenge because otherwise I would just get bored. Full Story

What Tom Has

Ew. Why is Eric Bana still on the Freebie Five? I just can’t… the lips… the too thin lips that look like they’re eating each other… just can’t do. And it doesn’t seem right. That those lips are on there when Tom Brady isn’t. Check out Tom Brady, arriving at LAX the other day with Gisele. Full Story

Hot Harry on a Horse Hump Day

Lainey Posted by Lainey at April 2, 2008 07:30:00 April 2, 2008 07:30:00

Here he is last weekend in South Africa with Chelsy and her family apparently rather preoccupied with his crotch. Or am I just dirty? Hot Harry is 23… just one year shy of my Gay Math threshold. Is it ok to lust him? What’s a year anyway?!?!? And how do you resist? Look at him. Happy Hump Day. Full Story

Granny’s Best Friend

Granny Freeze had lunch with Naomi Watts yesterday in Australia and surprise! The paps found her and we have pics! Word is, Naomi didn’t seem too happy about that. And why not? Because Naomi Watts does not create photo opps. Granny Nic on the other hand can’t live without them. It’s been ages since Nicole Kidman has been seen with her bestie. Full Story

Mrs Bee Z?

People.com broke the story yesterday – on April Fool’s Day – and Us Weekly followed shortly after: that Beyonce and Jay-Z applied for a marriage license yesterday morning in Scarsdale, NY and now have 60 days to get married. Full Story
