What do Lance Armstrong and Jared Leto have in common? Both were born in 1971. And both may have tapped Ashley Olsen! Ashley and Lance, as you know, hooked up a few times in New York last fall just before Lance ran the marathon. This weekend at the Art of Elysium benefit, sources tell me exclusively Ashley made a beeline for Jared and worked it hard. Full Story

Look Who’s Hot Again

Ben Affleck with Taupe and Violet are back in Cali after an extended stay in New York. Check out the family this weekend looking busy being a family. And check out Ben looking hotter than he has in a long, long time. Like almost Lopez-era hot. Yum. Ben of course is coming off a comeback year. Gone Baby Gone was a critical success and Amy Ryan’s performance, under Ben’s direction, is considered a lock for an Oscar nomination. Full Story

Chicken Fried Recyle

Things are heating up with Adnan – apparently they’re inseparable. And perhaps the owner of a new Mercedes? Britney took him car shopping over the weekend… wearing the same short lacy dress she wore during her wedding reception and showing off a surprisingly nice back. Her choice of attire of course left everyone debating its intended meaning, sparking rumours about her future with Adnan: will she do the unthinkable and marry him hastily and convert to  Islam  Full Story

Dear Gossips,

The Shelf Ass has re-emerged. And she’s kicking off 2008 looking like… sh*t. Seriously, seriously awful. More on that later.

Browsing through the new issue of Us Weekly last night, reading through the Britney Time Bomb article but the best part was – guess what the other paps call Adnan? They refer to him as:

A-Fed!!!

Do you love it, or do you LOVE it?

Also today – see the Alba Bitch sneering at KatE.

Friday, blogging all day, don’t forget to refresh!

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

PS. Happy 24th Birthday Jessica! I hear it’s your first away from home. Wishing you the loveliest Saturday and all the best.

For Blair

Lainey Posted by Lainey at January 11, 2008 00:00:00 January 11, 2008 00:00:00

Some of you have written to argue that too much praise has been lavished on Blake Lively’s Serena van der Woodsen and not enough has been bestowed upon Leighton Meester’s Blair Waldorf. This is true. You are right. I am sorry. Both are incredible. Unlike Brenda and Kelly from the 90210 days, when Brenda was CLEARLY way more interesting than Kelly, Blair and Serena, Leighton and Blake, are equally amazing in different ways. Full Story

It’s been a career year for Josh Brolin thanks to his scene stealing turn in No Country for Old Men. Josh has indeed made mention of it in recent interviews, describing his long, patient ride to recognition and how it feels to finally be known not for who his father is married to, or who he’s married to, but who he is on his own. Full Story

A Three Whiskered Atonement

Lainey Posted by Lainey at January 11, 2008 00:00:00 January 11, 2008 00:00:00

We believe in getting our fortunes told. When I was 19, on a lark, I had my palm read by a shady lady who was still studying the art. She sent chills down my spine when all she told me was: Do more charity work. Do more charity work. This usually means that the fates are conspiring against you, that you or your family members might die a young death or suffer unspeakable tragedy, and doing charity is a way to beg for mercy. Full Story

About the C Word

Lainey Posted by Lainey at January 11, 2008 00:00:00 January 11, 2008 00:00:00

Keira Knightley says in this issue of Entertainment Weekly that the C-word – referring to female genitalia – is “not as big of a deal (in England) as it is in America.” Totally agree. In North America it’s arguably the worst word ever. But if you’ve seen Atonement, you probably came away from the experience with a newfound sensual appreciation for “C” that never existed before. Full Story

Trainwreck at the Superbowl?

Lainey Posted by Lainey at January 11, 2008 08:24:09 January 11, 2008 08:24:09

This HAS to happen. It HAS to. TV Guide columnist, the brilliant Michael Ausiello, is reporting that Paula Abdul will perform at the Superbowl. And that it will be LIVE. Apparently Paula cut a new song with fellow judge Randy Jackson and has been rehearsing a new video. Even though it’s been years since Paula’s been anything but a judge on American Idol, even though on American Idol she can barely string together a sentence, even though she’s loopy as sh*t… Paula Abdul, in front of millions and millions of people, on US television’s biggest night, will take the stage. Full Story

Marc Loves Posh

More ads from the new series of Marc Jacobs ads featuring Victoria Beckham – cheeky and fun and more reason for you to worship her. Again and again, she is endlessly entertaining. As for conceiving the idea behind the campaign, Marc said he was aware what the initial reaction would be, and decided to play that up:“People will think it"s an odd choice for me to have made, and people will think it"s odd for (Victoria) to do. Full Story
