Of all of Michael Moore’s movies, this one hit closest to the heart. Less inflammatory but no less shocking, the crux of the matter is health care, or the lack of an adequate health care system and a current iteration that is failing millions in the United States. People are sick and they are not getting help. Full Story
Between Granny Freeze Nicole Kidman and Granny Grease Meg Ryan, I don’t know what’s worse. Meg Ryan showed up at the 18th Annual Courage in Journalism Awards last night not as scary looking as she has in the past but still oddly plumped, like the skin’s been inflated underneath – a grotesque rendering of what was once an extremely appealing face.

The mop is gone! Chris Martin was sighted in London yesterday freshly shorn and actually kinda cute. This is for my friend Michelle C who met him backstage at the Juno Awards 2 years ago and lost her mind. While rumours continue to swirl about Chris’s marriage to my Gwyneth, her rep insists they make a point of never being seen together publicly and so speculation of strife stemming solely from the absence of photographs is said to be unfounded.

French Canadian Cheese has landed in London! Hope she"s still there when I arrive on Friday. Check out Celion Dion heading to the BBC for an interview today to promote her new album Taking Chances, slowly making her way for a publicity blitz in America. It’s been a while since we’ve been treated to the lunge and thump and the husband and child gushing ad nauseum. Full Story
Such as, like, such as, like you know, everywhere, such as, the Eye-Rack? Remember MIss South Carolina? And then there’s Britney. Britney called in to Ryan Seacrest this morning and, well, of course it was hilarious. In two minutes, she said “You Know?” – by my count anyway – 21 times in the first 2 minutes. Full Story
You will love this. As you know, for the last couple of months, George Clooney has been squiring around a young lass called Sarah Larsen. Sarah has been identified as a one time Vegas cocktail waitress and Fear Factor contestant who has taken leave at her job to accompany her john around the world. And john really is the operative word. Full Story
Only she can get away with dressing like Barbara Walters and still look so beautiful. Angelina Jolie attended the International Women’s Media Foundation 18th Annual Courage in Journalism Awards last night swimming in a black pantsuit and Louboutin pumps. Still…there’s that face. A face gaunt and tired and maybe even a little queasy from possible pregnancy but still a world class face nonetheless. Full Story
Another assistant speaks! This time a more sympathetic portrayal of Britney from a girl who spent 3 months with her non stop from soon after her split with KFed right up to when she was admitted to rehab. Kalie Machado met Britney at her house in early December 2006 as part of a hair styling team hired to put in Britney’s weave. Full Story
"They"ve called me a whore, a gold digger, a fantasist, a liar, the most unbelievably hurtful things, and I"ve stayed quiet for my daughter." Ummmm…really? Does a tearful appearance on GMTV constitute as quiet? And how about the legal leaks? How did details of her baseless allegations against Paul McCartney manage to make their way into the papers? And still Heather Mills is complaining that she’s been vilified and nearly destroyed by the press, even while she uses the press to achieve her objective. Full Story
He’s 36, she’s 21, and apparently she was sitting on his lap on Monday night sucking his face off – Lance Armstrong and Ashley Olsen, that is. Not hard to see why he’d be attracted. Ashley is gorgeous – seen here last night leaving the Waverly after dinner with Sting and Slash and Owen Wilson and a few other not so notables. Full Story
Is The Second Coming on the way? More on that later.
Am officially terrified of and totally infatuated with Iman for Project Runway Canada. The way she cut that designer off the show last night, putting a dagger through the poor girl’s heart, twisting it sideways, and then pouring whiskey onto the wound before finally sending her away with two kisses … perhaps Yeats said it best: A Terrible Beauty is Born.
And I wonder if Iman couldn’t scare Britney straight.
It’s Tuesday, am online all day so refresh often!
Yours in gossip,
PS. My love and thanks to the always brilliant Joyce Ma at Sweet Chemise for putting me in her Mystique – see attached – the black dress I wore at the Geminis on Sunday night. Loved the cut out neckline…loved even more than I could eat which is a testament, of course, to Joyce’s limitless talent.
Much appreciation also to Kiss & Makeup for the accessories. Couldn’t help but puff the chest out a little when Anne Heche eyed my earrings and then asked where to get.
PPS. It’s not Courteney Cox who"s backstabbing Jennifer Aniston.
