Katie Holmes was let out of the GMD’s clutches for a very good reason yesterday: to attend the premiere of Hairspray starring none other than church-mate John Travolta. And free from the diminutive influence of her husband, Katie as you can see is workin’ the carpet hard, giving us a sad glimpse of what could have been. Full Story
Virtually every critic has slammed her special with every disparaging adjective possible. Meanwhile, the British papers are salivating over the savage reviews, gleeful in their premature assessment that the Beckham defection has not gone unpunished. And though the numbers have yet to be announced (at press time), going purely from print at least, it would appear that Victoria Beckham’s one hour debut was a colossal failure. Full Story
Nowhere near complete but it’s a start. As always, your feedback is appreciated and valued. But before you email to complain, could I trouble you to read through the Site Brief first? Just a quick and dirty explanation of who and why and what and how and when…
Please also forgive typos and grammatical errors (ie. It’s instead of its etc). There are a few introductions to new features I wasn’t able to write myself or that I’ve yet to have the time to go back and proof. A little bleary-eyed, appreciate your patience?
Finally, a huge acknowledgement goes to Ed and Erwin Choi and JS for their hard work on the re-launch. All I did was sit back and bitch – everything else was in their hands. And of course to all of you for making LaineyGossip.com a part of your smutty social.
Thank you, love you, owe you.
Monday – live blogging, check back often…and NB: New posts today will appear UNDER the Site Brief.
Yours in gossip,
Some of the names you"ve requested this morning/afternoon have now been added. If there is someone you want, email me - I"ll input when I can.

As such, it has been a challenge to limit the types of candidates available. Full Story
How utterly original. No wonder they’re married. Because what says made for each other like matching public spittle? And on an album cover no less? Can you picture Avril’s quiver? This is Deryck Whibley of Sum 41. This is their upcoming release – watch out you don’t choke over the artist genius. Full Story
B’s father manages Destiny’s Child and his daughter’s solo career and that of Kelly Rowland. Wonder if poor Kelly is getting the shaft. Or perhaps it’s a case of Lindsay Lohan disease? Kelly was performing at the ThisDay Music Festival Sunday in Nigeria and collapsed on stage and was taken to hospital. Full Story
Mandy Moore had that problem with that DJ, now Kate Hudson. From Chris Robinson to Owen Wilson – total upgrade. But from Owen Wilson to Dax Shepard? Not a universal improvement aesthetically by any stretch. In fact, under certain light, with the right character and the right script (The Royal Tenenbaum’s) his nose can actually be kinda hot.

First full weekend in Los Angeles, Victoria and David spent most of it undercover but for a very, very high profile visit with the boys to Toys R Us. First though – Posh paid a visit to Jay Leno on The Tonight Show on Friday, smiling a lot, giggling a lot, but through it all, always completely posed, every angle perfect, every movement practised, every expression planned from the moment she walked out on stage.

Kev Paves has returned, and just behind him, so has Jessica Simpson’s tranny. Banished under the classier eye of Harley Pasternak, The Tranny has been resurrected by her tacky ass stylist – both in Miami to celebrate the launch of her new swimwear line. As you can see, Ken brings out the cheap. Full Story
