Jennifer Aniston is in New York picking up on some of Katie Holmes’s style tips. As you can see, Oprah’s favourite is the latest to put on a pair of boyfriend jeans. And if she’s doing it, it means the MiniVan is doing it. Which means the trend is, like, officially lost its edge. Boyfriend jeans = boot cut jeans Thank you Jennifer Aniston. Full Story

August 22, 2008 – Smutty Shout-Outs

Happy Birthday Anita - the most "informative" big sister there ever was. If I don't know something or need some edu-mation, you can be sure to cover all of the angles in your explanation...and then some. (Looking forward forward to having) many detailed conversations about such things as "snail trails" and "Rossuming/sugar raping" while lunching at the spa. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

It was fortuitous we arranged our travel to Seattle for yesterday afternoon. Managed to avoid the baby deluge. Everyone was either giving birth, announcing they had already given birth, or announcing that they will soon be giving birth. Am grateful to have escaped. Am not curious in the least about Ricky Martin’s sudden double fatherhood. How else does a gay man become a daddy? Why is that still a secret?

Sigh. Radiohead. The best. THE BEST. But am dead bagged today because we only got back to the hotel at 2:30am. Typos ahead.

Still…for two hours last night, for the first time in two weeks, I quivered for someone other than Michael Phelps: Jonny Greenwood.

Thursday – am blogging all day from Seattle. Refresh, refresh, refresh!

Yours in gossip,


PS. For your many, many emails of support re: this and what’s come with it – am so grateful for your acknowledgement. Thank you, love you, owe you.

Jailbait Miley Cyrus is turning 16 soon. She will be celebrating at – where else? – Disneyland and she is inviting a “limited number” of her fans to join her. The price? Only $250. Jailbait is becoming a global brand. Full Story

Together again, inseparable, and PDA

It’s hard to leave them alone when they’re just so damn cute…and super super PDA too! As I was the first to report earlier this week, Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams are back together and so so SO happy in Toronto. They’ve been sighted at local hangouts in town every night and day, hands linked, always smiling, beaming at each other – the flush of first love all over again. Full Story

Same place, same time

For the first time in several years, former lovers Katie Holmes and Joshua Jackson, Joey and Pacey, are in the same city at the same time. It means nothing. Though she may be tempted, in the deep reaches of her soul that have yet to be completely eradicated by Xenu, to see her old friend, Katie’s heart is not unlike Kay’s – frozen by splinters from the troll mirror in Hans Christian Andersen’s Snow Queen, his personality cruelly transformed and entranced by the Snow Queen’s kiss, his memory paralysed, his loves forgotten, his family left behind. Full Story

BBQ at The Brange’s!

Rumour has it the Pitts are inviting their French neighbours over to the chateau for a backyard bbq in order to ingratiate themselves with the community. Supposedly they were advised by the town mayor – invite the local folks over, charm them with your children and your hospitality, and perhaps they will do as you request and leave you alone. Full Story

Chicken Fried Playdates

Britney was seen leaving a recording studio last night with mom – still working hard, still on a good track. So good, her sons have been accepted into a very elite baby circle: little Kingston Rossdale was allowed to come over and play with SFP and JJ. Kingston, as you know, is super tight with The Chosen One Shiloh. Full Story

No Porny! No no!

It’s like… it’s like she’s never, ever been to a sleepover, you know? The truth reveals itself much too often: Jessica Simpson has no girlfriends. No true girlfriends. No true back up. No girls with whom to discuss strategy – either via group session at lunch, or these days on IM, and as we do lately, via Skype. Full Story

The Essence of the Annual Summer Crush

Lainey Posted by Lainey at August 21, 2008 08:02:00 August 21, 2008 08:02:00

It happens every summer. Every summer I develop a sick ass crush – an embarrassing crush for a 15 year old let alone a woman about to turn 35. Like scripted daydreams. Like scripted detailed daydreams about how we meet, what we say to each other, what I’m wearing. Sometimes I change the outfits. Full Story
