I know you’re out there – the Gerard Butler fan club. I know he’s your quiveration. And while I’m not a beefcake girl myself, I can understand why he might set your loins afire. But dude… This is all kindsa wrong. Gerry at the Victoria’s Secret show last night – as you can see, as Bridget’s mother would say, he’s so orange he’s practically purple. Full Story
Two songs, two outfits, and of course a change of clothes for the carpet – it’s not about the music, but it’s all about the Spice. So f*ck the British critics this morning who are calling it a disappointment. Since when were vocals part of the comeback criteria? Feast your eyes rather on the military themed ensembles for Stop and the custom Cavallis for Headlines (Friendship Never Ends), their new bland song that requires only posing and puckering, and also note what the girls chose for the press line before beginning the show.

Confession: I am stupid. SO stupid. To have waited this long to enjoy My So Called Life?
But almost better, I think. Because watching it in your 30s for the first time is better. Not that I ever doubted it was great, I just never bothered to confirm that it was great. And 17 years later, it is still great. 17 years later it still stands up.
Cracked open the box set yesterday on a rainy, bloated, blah evening – husband at the hockey game – me at home with Chinese take out…was the perfect setting. And the perfect pilot episode. So on the off chance you’ve been as stupid as me… don’t be.
Congratulations to the winners of the My So Called Life Collector’s Edition DVD set: Joanne C, Karolina K, Meghan L, Janelle B, and Sarah B. Also to Melissa D for winning the Miss Sixty fragrance.
And attention Patty R. Are you Patty R? Do you know Patty R? Your Gemini Swag Bag is waiting! Please get in touch or if you know Patty, please tell her to get in touch!
Thursday – live blogging, check back often.
Yours in gossip,
PS. Happy belated birthday to Erin W – you’ve been reading a long, long time. And you started the Facebook group too! Hope yesterday was fantastic. Thank you, love you, owe you.
PPS. Many of you wrote to ask about the Alice + Olivia dresses I wore during TIFF. Specifically the black sequined strip tank that ends in a bubble, also worn several times this season by Sienna Miller, and the white sparkly feather number earmarked for Colin Farrell but for a sudden rainstorm. Images attached.
Well here’s your chance if you’re looking for holiday party fashion. To accommodate extra stock for the Christmas rush, Kiss & Makeup is kicking off Christmas with a food drive and trunk sale this weekend only including fashions by Alice + Olivia, James Perse, Cynthia Vincent, and Eugenia Kim (best hats ever). Bring a can of food, get 10% off…bring 4 cans, get up to 40% off. It’s a sweet, sweet deal. And if you don’t live in Vancouver, call them. They will ship. I’m going Friday morning for a first crack before the hordes. I am prepared to fight!
PPPS. Mute Stones is not Nicole Kidman. Or Charlize Theron. Those two have won Oscars. But while Mute"s family and her husband may be decorated, she herself ...not so much.
She served 84 minutes in jail today, checking in at around 10:30am this morning and getting released just before noon, getting credit for community service and whittling away her 4 day sentence to less than 2 hours behind bars. 2 hours for getting coked up and driving madly down the highway and threatening to run a bitch over.

As far as celebrity love monikers go, this one is my favourite. Hayden-Milo…Halo. Speculation about the true nature of their relationship has been rife since summer and there’s nothing unusual about that except… he’s 30 and she just turned 18 in August. And while the two have not yet been caught by the paps sneaking in and out of each other’s homes, they did share a suggestive touchy feely moment at an awards show a while back and have been evasive about it ever since.

Do they deserve privacy when they conveniently parade their personal lives to their advantage? Conveniently when there’s a movie to promote or a tv show to premiere? Some do it better than others. Bet your boob job Harvey Weinstein gave Hayden Christensen the order – bring your girlfriend to the premiere. Full Story
Ugh. Dear Alba Bitch, We get it. Your beauty is a curse. You don’t want to be known for your body. Because you are an actor. No, honey. Julianne Moore is an actor. You, sweetheart, are simply a pretty face. And a first class bitch, no matter how hard Harvey Weinstein has been talking you up. And no one will see Awake if you’re not getting naked. Full Story
Another great gift…this one is sitting on my dining room table begging to be opened. Which means it needs to leave my house right now. The Village Voice called Gilmore Girls the “sweetest show on TV” and while that descriptor may inspire a Seventh Heaven frown, rest assured GG, unlike SH, is beautifully written and beautifully acted.
