Let’s Call It What It Is

If it’s totally acceptable to call Katie Couric a cougar for dating a man 17 years her junior and Helena Christensen the same for dealing with Heath Ledger who’s younger by a decade, then how about taking Milo Ventimiglia off your Freebie Five and labelling him a perv? Because he and Hayden Panettiere are slowly, slowly crawling out publicly. Full Story

How to Help Your Man

Gisele Bundchen is a supermodel, by profession and genetic jackpot, understandably one of the most narcissistic creatures on the planet. And still, Gisele is capable of putting her ego away when a game is on the line. When her man Tom Brady needs to focus on the job, Gisele knows it’s not her time. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Hope you had a lovely holiday break. Am back in North America after enjoying a Hello Kitty Christmas in Hong Kong with the parents where my husband asked the question that has baffled Asians and non-Asians alike for years:

What’s up with the double peace sign pose?

I’ve no doubt you’ve seen it. Two Hello Kitties will stand side by side for a photo, cock their bodies to the side, with both hands spread in the peace sign framing their faces and their bad teeth. If you’ve never had the pleasure, head to any tourist attraction near you and give it 5 minutes. Trust.

Last day of an epic year. Final Best of 2007 moments to come in today’s column and hope you’re ready and well rested for 2008! Awards season kicks off in days and the Family Pitt is on campaign trail!

By the way – not even Sean Penn was immune to Hollywood Ebola Paris Hilton. It will destroy everything, see? Next victim: hopefully Kevin Federline.

Yours in gossip,


PS. Happy Champagne Birthday to Erin K – you will love your 30s. Promise!

PPS. Uma Thurman is NOT on Holiday Detox.

PPPS. Eddie Murphy is not getting gay with it in his trailer.

And finally… the best moment of the year. Could there really be another moment to top this? Did we all not stand up and cheer and cackle and get rip roaring drunk on June 8th when Rocky Delgadillo hauled Ebola’s diseased ass back to jail? Let’s recap the best day ever, shall we? So Paris is in jail. Full Story

Presenting Katie Holmes: Best of 2007

2007 was the year we were introduced to the new Cruise patented move: the Presentation of Katie Holmes. Red carpet after red carpet, the GMD would arrive at some event with his robobride in tow, and like a proud father at the cotillion, Tom would “present” his wife with cameras flashing. It is at once awkward, and weird, and creepy, and f*cking hilarious. Full Story

DeQuivering ManFight: Best of 2007

Remember when George Clooney, the ultra cool, ultra classy George Clooney turned into a whiny bitch and tussled with Fabio? Not his best moment but still one of the funniest memories of the year. Seriously ... George…dude… you let Fabio get under your skin? Fabio??? Of course Fabio came out of the situation the big winner. Full Story

Made up and Contrite

Mischa Barton will not be hosting a NYE party tonight but she does want to look depressed about it. Mischa was “seen” yesterday with her dogs, beautifully made up and morose, trying to appear contrite about attempting to kill people with her car the other night when she was driving it drunk off her tree. Full Story

A year and a half and still going strong! Joshua Jackson and Diane Kruger were spotted in New York at the weekend shopping at Bergdorf’s. Total gorgessity together – he in a tan jacket with a brown scarf, she was wearing a black bomber over jeans tucked into black boots. Love how he’s a total fashion man with her. Full Story

Dr Karev on the town

Justin Chambers is the quivering hotness. And Karev, along with Dr Bailey, remains one of the few redeeming qualities of a show that has turned to sh*t. Check out Justin the other night hitting up Goa in Hollywood. Justin of course is married with several children. He is sexy and famous and rich. And prowling the club scene in LA. Full Story
