Flat boots and pompom hats!

Lainey Posted by Lainey at October 20, 2008 08:57:56 October 20, 2008 08:57:56

They’re my favourite. Polka dots and pompoms, stripes and pompoms, plain pompoms, I have them all. Pompom hats in the winter are the best and it’s all about flat boots. This is a very smartly dressed Matilda Ledger in Brooklyn the other day going for a walk to the corner café for a coffee (mom) and a bagel (Matilda). Full Story

Are we there yet?

Seems like Ashlee Simpson has been pregnant forever but she still doesn’t even look that big to me. How much longer? Are we there yet? This is Ashlee leaving after dinner the other night with an expression that a shrew like me can only interpret as: Ugh. Get this thing out of me. My friend DT is due in January with her second. Full Story

Little Sci goes for ice cream

Let’s play Photo Assumption, shall we? Little Sci went for ice cream with her dad the other day and spent the entire time trying to get away from him while he tried in vain to look like the doting-est father in the history of fatherhood…which is a totally baseless assumption, I guess, because it’s not unusual for 2 year olds to get a bit squirmy? That’s what they tell me. Full Story

The Goldigger and Duchovny

Lainey Posted by Lainey at October 20, 2008 08:21:55 October 20, 2008 08:21:55

Middle aged man, another cliché… It’s one thing to be at the centre of a scandal, but for someone like David Duchovny, to be textbook is almost worse. On the heels of their separation announcement, a separation that occurred well before his stint in rehab for sex addiction, it’s now emerged that David Duchovny was allegedly having an affair with his 28 year old tennis coach. Full Story

Mr and Mrs Beckham found themselves in the same city at the same time on Friday night – it’s been hard for the couple to spend quality time together these days…so they took the opportunity to go out for dinner and get photographed in London. Knowing however that the tabloids have been consumed these days by Madonna’s divorce – the Beckhams made it past the cursed 7 years – Posh pulled out the conversation stoppers, just in case added insurance was required for publication. Full Story

War on Madge

Lainey Posted by Lainey at October 20, 2008 08:03:00 October 20, 2008 08:03:00

As you know, the Madonna/Guy Ritchie divorce is being played out publicly on an hourly basis in the UK tabloids. Conflicting reports are being released every day – some in favour of Madonna but most in favour of Guy: that she’s a control freak, that there’s no tv allowed at the house, that her family members are only permitted to graze on spelt and flax seed, that she forced the Kab down everyone’s throat…and the list goes on. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

My mother spent 48 hours this week stressing out about her gynecological report. They called on Tuesday, said the doctor urgently needed her to come in on Thursday before he leaves for holiday … Never a good sign. When she arrived though, they were puzzled to see her. Apparently it ended up being a clerical error.

As you would expect, the Squawking Chicken was too elated with relief to pull out the full might of her chicken squawk and punish them for their error. As I should expect, by the end of the whole ordeal, it’s me who’s out several hundred dollars and a trip to Niagara Fallsview Casino (because the slot games are the most interactive there) as a “make me feel better” present for something that wasn’t wrong in the first place.

In other words, I am paying for their incompetence.

My mother, meanwhile, is treating the experience as though it were a new lease on life. After surviving kidney failure, a kidney transplant (touch wood), and now an almost gynecological clerical scare, she truly believes she’s now one of the enlightened few…which brings me to my point:

She should start writing for GOOP, non?

I posted late in the day yesterday – please scroll down to get caught up.

It’s Friday! Yay! New articles all day! Have a great weekend!

Yours in gossip,


PS. Victoria Beckham did not install a lap band. Knowing her she probably did the drastic gastric.

Hot Harry on a Horse…on a motorbike!

Vroom vroom…yum yum! It’s f&cking pouring here in Vancouver. It’ll pour here for the next 5 months. Am thankful for a little hot Harry to lift my soggy spirits. Hot Harry hopped on a bike today to participate in the Enduro Africa 2008 Motorcycle Rally to benefit UNICEF, Sentebale and the Nelson Mandela Children's Fund in South Africa. Full Story

What it’s like to meet Johnny

I’ve been fortunate enough during my time with eTalk to have the opportunity to interview and observe celebrities, to exchange war stories with journalists, to have a glimpse at what it’s like behind the People Magazine bullsh-t…and as you’ve probably gleaned from this column, assy celebrity behaviour is not the exception but almost the rule, and more often than not, it’s not shocking when they’re dicky, but it is when they’re nice. Full Story
