Dear Gossips,

Am road-weary and slightly hung over but ready to blog all day from West Hollywood! Dashed in and out of Portland yesterday after visiting the set of Twilight  – more on that coming soon and tune into eTalk this week to watch the interviews with the cast including Robert Pattinson (Edward), Kristen Stewart (Bella), and Rachelle Lefebvre (Victoria). If you haven’t yet heard of Twilight…you will and get ready. Based on the series by Stephenie Meyer, the film is scheduled for release in December and you know, movies don’t open in December unless they are expected to be huge. Trust.

And Pete Wentz says Ashlee Simpson isn’t expecting anything… except desperate publicity for her album and her new line of clothing. Since news of their engagement barely stirred, how sad they had to pull out the baby hoax. And then vehemently call it a baby witch hunt... but STILL nobody cared!

Sit DOWN Pete Wentz.

Voting closes today at 5pm ET for Media Idol. Am so excited and honoured for your support so far. Please click here to help me get through to the finale where hopefully I can win $1,000 for Covenant House and match $1,000 of my own. Thank you, love you, owe you, and apologies for sounding so sh*t.

Yours in gossip,


PS. This is not Bono. Feel better?

In the Minority

Not a popular sentiment but I LOVE Lily Allen as a blonde. Love it. Love the red lips, love the skin, love the hair … am all over it. This is Lily at an art show tonight in London looking glum and sullen. Because she’s not drunk. Yet. Photos from Wenn.com Full Story

Miley’s Mouth

An irrational pet peeve, I know. Similar to the way I feel about turned out feet… but still. Miley’s mouth makes me crazy. Like bat sh*t, not in a good way, medieval crazy. Like she deliberately put some kind of contraption in there to make it stay open. Ugh. If there was a 3 way Rossum contest between Miley Cyrus, Carrie Underwood, and the Original Rossum Emmy herself…who would win? Here’s Miley at the CMT Awards last night falling more in love with herself every day. Full Story

With a Mother Like This…

You still like Hayden Panettiere’s chances of NOT becoming Lindsay Lohan? Really??? Check out Hayden and her mother yesterday on set in Vancouver. Next to her mom, finally, Hayden actually looks her age. Endearing too. Feel sorry for her now…especially seeing the face – or the new face – of her parent. Full Story

Xenu Hates Losers

His name is Jason Beghe. Once upon a time he worshipped at the altar of Xenu. Now he’s cut ties with the Church and is launching a vitriolic attack. Click here Full Story

Love on the Move

They are serious – Kate Hudson and Owen Wilson. And judging by the looks of things, her year of manslinging is officially over now that they’ve reunited and recommitted. Kate joined Owen in Miami while he there shooting Marley & Me, then she began work in NYC on Bride Wars, now I hear they spent last weekend in Boston together, seen walking up Mt Vernon street arm in arm on Sunday. Full Story

Welcome Back Nelly

Lainey Posted by Lainey at April 15, 2008 08:38:31 April 15, 2008 08:38:31

It has been too long. Too long since Nelly put out a video. Too long since Nelly frolicked in the shower with a dance floor ho. Too long since Nelly dragged on a joint on a baseball diamond with strippers in go-go boots. I love Nelly. And Nelly is finally back! Here’s Nelly at TRL yesterday promoting his new video with Fergie Ferg. Full Story

Anna Loves Gwyneth

Lainey Posted by Lainey at April 15, 2008 08:22:10 April 15, 2008 08:22:10

It’s unanimous. Gwyneth’s new cover for the May issue of Vogue, as my husband would say, licks balls. Not even I, a Gwyneth worshipper through and through, can find an ounce of golden goodness in this goose. It’s horrid. But it doesn’t matter. It doesn’t matter that you hate it. Full Story

Go ‘head and flaunt it

Who wouldn’t? Fergie and Josh Duhamel went out for dinner last night in NYC and as she was leaving, Fergie proudly displayed that engagement ring. Lucky bitch. She also showed off a remarkably attractive face. Call me Cruise but …has she been getting better and better looking the last year or so? Or is it like numbing to an eyesore? Can’t decide but either way, Fergie is clearly no longer a Donatella Versace. Full Story

Mommy Daddy Date Night

Lainey Posted by Lainey at April 15, 2008 07:41:36 April 15, 2008 07:41:36

JLo JLo JLo stepped out with Marc Anthony for dinner at the Waverly with a fresh blowout in white studded Louboutin mary janes ready to amaze the world with her rapid post-twins weight loss. She does look incredible, non? Full of life and glow, maybe a little tired around the eyes, but very, very real. Full Story

Granny Grows… a Little. I think?

Lainey Posted by Lainey at April 15, 2008 07:28:00 April 15, 2008 07:28:00

Last night at the CMT Awards, Granny Freeze Nicole Kidman looked beautiful. Seriously beautiful. Like a statue or an artifact polished and presented, like any inanimate work of art, stunningly beautiful without the blush of life. Here’s Gran with Keith basking in her expectant glow, slightly, I think, bigger in the belly than the last time we saw her, and clearly freshly returned from a Botox, Restalyne, Collagen touch-up. Full Story
