Dear Gossips,

Olympic Freebie Five has finally been fixed and updated. Newest addition: Eric Lamaze. Gold for Canada and redemption for himself. YAY!

On the subject of show jumping – for a dirty, extremely satisfying read, there’s no one better than Jilly Cooper. And Rupert Campbell-Black is probably one of the most endearing characters in trash literature.

It’s Friday! Leaving Seattle for home this afternoon, popping in for golf along the way. Perfect end to a perfect mini-break. Have a great, great weekend!

Yours in gossip,


PS. Nice to know I’m not the only one with a sick problem. Thank you for sharing your summer obsession struggles. We can be deranged together. If you missed it yesterday – click here for the Essence of the Annual Summer Crush.

Don Cheadle anytime

Anytime. Don Cheadle with Guy Pearce? Please. It’s an automatic. Here they are last night in New York at the premiere of Traitor. Don has been in New York shooting Brooklyn’s Finest. He makes every movie better. Like Out of Sight. Remember Out of Sight? Remember Jennifer Lopez and George Clooney in Out of Sight? Has Jennifer Lopez made a good movie since Out of Sight? Don also has a film with Mos Def coming up. Full Story

It was only 3 weeks ago when I condescendingly told my cousin Cat to get a handle on herself. She was losing her sh*t over an infant called Rafael Nadal, couldn’t stop texting me about his arms, his girlfriend, his loyalty, his sweetness. Obviously, Michael Phelps has now proven me a hypocrite. Full Story

Two Become One

Lindsay Lohan and Samantha Ronson – out for lunch, then shopping, in great spirits yesterday, and starting to become one person. Almost. White tops, contrasting wayfarers, and Lilo’s thinnification too. Sam still has the edge on the little legs, but Lilo’s not too far behind. My favourite couple of the summer shared a tender moment inside the shop, critiqued each others’ clothing selections, and happily showed off Lindsay’s flouncing breasts. Full Story

In a few months, all five Spices will be moms, as the one lone abstainer has succumbed to the epidemic: Sporty Spice is pregnant. She announced it on her site today. Mel C says the father is her boyfriend of six years Thomas Starr. All together now: But I thought she was the gay one??? Gay, not gay, don’t care. Full Story

My boyfriend gets around

He says he wants to elevate the popularity of swimming in North America to what it’s like in Australia, do perhaps what Tiger has done for golf, what Becks is trying with soccer. As such, there is a price to pay. Sorry, kid. Comes with the territory. Besides, I need to know who’s sharing your bed if it can’t be me. Full Story

The Break-Up Sisters

Anne Hathaway and Emily Blunt, close from the days of Prada, are now both single at the same time after suffering serious disappointment, not to mention public humiliation, thanks to their former douchebag boyfriends. Anne of course broke up that shady business dude who kept writing bad cheques and ripping off charities. Full Story

Never a leader…

Jennifer Aniston is in New York picking up on some of Katie Holmes’s style tips. As you can see, Oprah’s favourite is the latest to put on a pair of boyfriend jeans. And if she’s doing it, it means the MiniVan is doing it. Which means the trend is, like, officially lost its edge. Boyfriend jeans = boot cut jeans Thank you Jennifer Aniston. Full Story

August 22, 2008 – Smutty Shout-Outs

Lainey Posted by Lainey at August 22, 2008 06:38:01 August 22, 2008 06:38:01

Happy Birthday Anita - the most "informative" big sister there ever was. If I don't know something or need some edu-mation, you can be sure to cover all of the angles in your explanation...and then some. (Looking forward forward to having) many detailed conversations about such things as "snail trails" and "Rossuming/sugar raping" while lunching at the spa. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

It was fortuitous we arranged our travel to Seattle for yesterday afternoon. Managed to avoid the baby deluge. Everyone was either giving birth, announcing they had already given birth, or announcing that they will soon be giving birth. Am grateful to have escaped. Am not curious in the least about Ricky Martin’s sudden double fatherhood. How else does a gay man become a daddy? Why is that still a secret?

Sigh. Radiohead. The best. THE BEST. But am dead bagged today because we only got back to the hotel at 2:30am. Typos ahead.

Still…for two hours last night, for the first time in two weeks, I quivered for someone other than Michael Phelps: Jonny Greenwood.

Thursday – am blogging all day from Seattle. Refresh, refresh, refresh!

Yours in gossip,


PS. For your many, many emails of support re: this and what’s come with it – am so grateful for your acknowledgement. Thank you, love you, owe you.
