Dear Gossips,

Now that we know who the winners turned out to be – damn it to hell that there was no show. Would’ve been nice to see Tina Fey, non?

Sigh. As my friend Duana wrote last night: I missed the silly pomp and the sillier circumstance.

Indeed, the No-Globes sucked ass. Awkward and cheesy and why do I need that simpering fool Billy Bush telling me that Cate Blanchett didn’t deserve to win because she was simply a “woman imitating a man”? It was a biopic, fool. In essence they were ALL imitating Bob Dylan. Who is a man!

And oh no Romo. Even though it was NOT Jessica Simpson’s fault the Cowboys ended the season in failure, Texas will blame the homegirl. This is what happens when daddy tells you to parade your new romance in a skybox during a football game. Time to Fire Daddy!

Chicken Fried weekend roundup, JT parties without Shelfy, and Little Sci makes an appearance… conveniently just before the Morton book hits the street.

Monday, live blogging, check back often!

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

PS. Happy 30th Birthday Alex!

Katie’s Legs

Lainey Posted by Lainey at January 14, 2008 15:35:05 January 14, 2008 15:35:05

Never been a fan of her legs but damn… lately, when she doesn’t look like a recluse, she’s been turning everything up a notch! Continuing her promotional whirlwind in New York today for Mad Money, Katie headed to Letterman this afternoon in a very short skirt and red coat. Am now very curious to see what’s underneath. Full Story

My Gwynnie is Good

For the two of you out there who, like me, don’t feel the urge to ram a stiletto into your eyeball when faced with Gwyneth Paltrow, here’s some news on what our girl has been up to. Shooting in NYC with Joaquin Phoenix and also, this weekend, Gwynnie dropped into Caroline’s Comedy Club for Susie Essman’s show with mom Blythe Danner AND Chris Martin (thanks K!). Full Story

D List Freeloaders

While the real stars kept out of sight during Golden Globe weekend, the D List was out in full bloom, with Tori Spelling and KFed Junior leading the way at a few of the gifting suites. Here’s Junior doing what he does best – freeloading off of someone else’s generosity alongside both his bank accounts: his eyesore of a wife, of course, and his son Liam. Full Story

RoboBride, Anna Wintour…or a Recluse?

Lainey Posted by Lainey at January 14, 2008 09:06:13 January 14, 2008 09:06:13

Seriously. 30 never looked so old! Or creepy! Check out Katie Holmes today at Good Morning America with her Anna Wintour bob, the huge sunglasses, and the overcoat looking like some kind of weird recluse. This is how I always pictured Greta Garbo in New York. Which I suppose is a flattering compliment but the Garbo of those sightings was a stately older woman, not a girl in her prime whose soul has been snatched by a megalomaniac. Full Story

Kingston’s Feet

Lainey Posted by Lainey at January 14, 2008 08:26:55 January 14, 2008 08:26:55

Not a baby person in the least but what I do like about them is their feet. So fat, like warm buns. Check out Kingston Rossdale’s cute feet yesterday with Gwen and Gavin at a park in Cali. At one point he grabbed mom’s sunglasses and tried to throw them in the pond. As you can see, King’s hair is getting longer. Full Story

Spice Cavalli

The Spices turned up on the runway at Roberto Cavalli’s mens’ show – as you can see, aside from Posh, Cavalli is clearly designing for Russian mail order eurotrash and Jessica Simpson these days. But Victoria looks fierce, doesn’t she? From the neck down, that is. The pantsuit is killer. Full Story

Chicken Fried British

Lainey Posted by Lainey at January 14, 2008 07:38:50 January 14, 2008 07:38:50

Britney lost her sh*t during a pap swarm this weekend and started cussing out photographers, all while holding the hand of her boyfriend who was on the other side of it two weeks ago. Brilliant, non? What’s most amusing though is that she also gave the paps an earful of her new British accent. Full Story

Pip without Shelfy…and Soul Glo?

Lainey Posted by Lainey at January 14, 2008 07:22:01 January 14, 2008 07:22:01

JT showed up at Villa at the weekend without his Shelf Ass who is said to be shooting a new movie in England. Wonder if his partying solo will make Shelfy insecure? No doubt she’ll be back in LA for a new convenient photo op as soon as she can. In the meantime, am all over Pip’s new straighter, flat to the head hairstyle. Full Story

Marion’s Double Gold

Lainey Posted by Lainey at January 14, 2008 06:54:34 January 14, 2008 06:54:34

Big weekend for Marion Cotillard. First, the LA Film Critics named her Best Actress, then the Hollywood Foreign Press Association did the same in the Musical/Comedy category making an Oscar nomination a foregone conclusion. Apparently Marion’s win over Ellen Page was considered an upset. Not that Juno wasn’t incredible and not that Ellen isn’t super incredible…but really??? Was it really an upset? Has anyone seen La Vie en Rose? Oh wait. Full Story
