Dear Gossips,

Did you go to temple this morning? Did you give thanks to the heavens? Today is the Chosen One’s second birthday. Brangelunatics the world over have declared an international holiday. And why not? Just being in the same 10 mile radius as the Chosen One last week accelerated the healing of my broken elbow. I am now officially typing two handed. Praise Shiloh. Jolie-Pitt.

And now we know, despite the initial controversy surrounding the premiere dates – that the film premiered in London and Berlin BEFORE New York – why the producers of Sex & the City chose today as their Big Apple launch. The Chosen One is shining on Carrie & Company. Can Sex topple Indiana Jones this weekend?

Red carpet is tonight. Should be a big spectacle with SJP’s ensemble taking centre stage.

Tuesday – am online all day…refresh, refresh, refresh!

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

Is She Done With Him Yet?

Kate Hudson reported back to work on the set of Bride Wars in New York today with blue hair and Uggs, fresh off her romantic Riviera romp with Lance Armstrong. Wonder if he’s out of her system yet. Would be amazing if he kept calling her and she froze him out. It’s more than a little complicated that little hook up, especially as it relates to alliances. Full Story

Rachel Films a Cameo

Because it’s so hard to get any good gossip on her… My sources tell me exclusively that Rachel McAdams was in Vancouver briefly last week to shoot a cameo for a very low profile Canadian tv show called The Guard, which is another reason to love her: that she takes time to support Canadian projects that are grossly underfunded. Full Story

The Thinnification of Colin Farrell

They say it’s for a movie role…but my smutty sense is tingling that it’s something more sinister. Smutty senses can be wrong. Let’s hope. This is Colin shooting a movie in Ireland, painfully thin. Look at his legs. Look how his eyes bulge. Suddenly I don’t want him for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Full Story

Meet Samantha Jones

Tonight is the NY premiere of Sex & the City. Immediately after the red carpet, Samantha Jones aka Kim Cattrall is coming home to Canada and she’ll be joining eTalk  on Wednesday live at our storefront studio to answer audience questions. Full Story

What Tom Wants to Hear

I loved Will Smith. Will Smith was perfect. And then Will Smith drank the Xenu juice. Will Smith hasn’t been the same since. So Will dropped by Ellen’s yesterday to promote Hancock – did you watch? Sigh. Made me sad. Once upon a time, Will Smith wasn’t so… contrived. Nowadays it’s like he’s taken a page from the GMD: totally rehearsed, pandering, maybe not so creepy, but also completely devoid of spontaneity. Full Story

Hilary is not Jessica

There is a high waisted difference between the two… although the Duff does look better from the front than she does from the side, non? This is the catch, I think, with the high waist issue. Unless you’re ten feet tall, inevitably, there’s an angle that ends up being unflattering. Especially if big tits are involved. Full Story

Shelfy Stomps Her Feet

Who’s the little Shelfy pouting in the corner? There’s the little Shelfy who needs more attention. Poor little petulant Shelfy has spent weeks off the headlines. That’s why the little Shelfy is stomping her feet. And putting her publicist right back to work. You see, Shelf Ass Jessica Biel has been stuck on a movie set with Jake Gyllenhaal who apparently read her the riot act, telling her in no uncertain terms that she was not to pull her usual paparazzi shenanigans and arrange “candids” from the set of their movie Nailed which has been filming over the last several weeks and recently shut down production reportedly from lack of funding. Full Story

Golden Girl & Lonely Boy hold hands

SPOILER! Was totally over Serena until the season finale of Gossip Girl but the fact that there’s a promising summer ahead without Dan Humphrey is definitely winning me back. How f*cking amazing was it that the show ended with the words: I"m Chuck Bass. But while their characters may be at an impasse, Blake and Penn Badgley are clearly still going strong despite their denials. Full Story
