Despite current internal strife over strike authorisation, the Screen Actors Guild nominations were announced today, most of it lining up as expected but for one or two surprises. Leonardo DiCaprio for Revolutionary Road was left off the ballot in favour of Brad Pitt. Full Story

Lainey Posted by Lainey at December 18, 2008 07:37:04 December 18, 2008 07:37:04

Last night in LA at a club called Bardot – Lindsay Lohan, with Samantha Ronson, Kelly Osbourne, and Kirsten Dunst, all present and accounted for, all with their own rehab history, at the same places too! Lilo and Kelly both chose Promises. Lilo and Kiki both chose the Cirque Lodge. Lilo’s like the Kevin Bacon of treatment facilities, non? And she has spent the better part of 7 months, since the Cannes film festival, attending party after party, hitting up lounge after lounge, like this will help with her completely stalled film career. Full Story

What’s up Piv?

Jeremy Piven decided to use his hiatus time from Entourage for a very well received stint on Broadway in Speed the Plow but he bailed on Tuesday and Wednesday and then took off for LA on Wednesday night, citing mercury count as the reason – something about his doctor ordering him to take off. Playwright David Mamet is not impressed, and doesn’t sound like he believes the Piv either: "I talked to Jeremy on the phone, and he told me that he discovered that he had a very high level of mercury. Full Story

Happy 34th Birthday Rebekah! Yes… I did dream of being taller. Even 5 ft 5 would have been good. Sorry about your cold but am sure the boyfriend will more than make up for it when he’s home. Tuck in and get cosy! Watch Love Actually! To Sarah J – thanks for taking my gossip from law school to Fergus, congratulations on your move and on your partnership (!). Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Thank you for sending your pet pictures in response to the post yesterday re: the BC SPCA and LOVE the photos!

Pets > People.

And the GMD rehabilitation machine continues. Last night it was Letterman and the Top 10 List. The topic?

Top 10 Craziest Things People Say About Tom Cruise on the Internet

Needless to say, none of them addressed the Xenu or the gaygay (because the truth ain’t crazy), but he did manage to pronounce Blagojevich properly. Bonus points for the Midge. Video is below. If you watched on HD last night you would have noted the similarity between his face and his ex wife’s. Amazing.

Yours in gossip,


PS. Cuba is not Christian Bale. Chocolate is not Keith Urban. But I love that you guessed him. Heh.

Legs + nipples

Jennifer Aniston at Letterman today… She arrived in pants, then changed for the show into a short dress to show off those legs. She’s been working those legs a lot lately. Perhaps the legs have replaced her permanently erect nipples? Or is it a one-two punch? Marley & Me needs to be a hit for her. Full Story

UPDATE: see below... That is not her boyfriend. Because her boyfriend is not that cute. And hopefully not a relative. This is my girlcrush Kristen Stewart last night leaving a store although it totally looks like a gifting suite. Not sure who the dude is but she was also with her bestie and Twilight’s Nikki Reed. Full Story

Best of 2008: Girls Like Us

By Sheila Weller. My parents were immigrants. Their Western musical knowledge when they arrived in Canada was limited to the Beatles, Doris Day, and Elvis. Eventually my dad discovered Simon & Garfunkel and he karaoked Bridge Over Troubled Water (don’t you laugh!) at my wedding. So I did not grow up in a house with a vast library stocked with the classic albums, with the rock gods, the R&B pioneers, the jazz greats. Full Story
