Dear Gossips,

Am suffering from Olympic withdrawal.

For two weeks, my husband and I leered together at the television every night. Me – swimming. Him – every event featuring scantily clad female athletes with the exception of the Chinese gymnastics team and their merry band of 5 year old leapers.

Final edition of the Olympic Freebie Five – new entries: Canadian bronze medallist Priscilla Lopes-Schliep with the gorgeous skin and the killer abs. And the tenacious Simon Whitfield who dug deep to bring home silver. Love.

At the very top though, dethroning my boyfriend Michael and even Usain Bolt, who else could it be but Matthew Mitcham – achieving the impossible by defeating the Chinese. Don’t think my main ‘mo Darren has been able to drag himself out of bed since Matthew tucked and piked his way to gold. His gay parts are probably still aching.

Can you blame him? Matthew Mitcham is a bonafide flaming quiver. For more of Matthew Mitcham click here.

And now we wait four years for London 2012. David Beckham represented London 2012, reminding me that he’s been neglected for much too long. For half the summer, in fact, in favour of The Dark Knight and Michael Phelps.

That ends tomorrow. Tomorrow the Freebie Five will be restored. Becks will return to his rightful place at the top. He is helping me with my Phelps fixation.

Monday – am blogging all day. Check back often!

Yours in gossip,


PS. Vanessa Hudgens performed last night at the PNE in Vancouver and apparently the audience could barely hear her weak little warble. Sass Jordan played a show at the PNE in Vancouver Friday night and rocked the house hard. That’s all.
