I love her. Natalie Portman in NYC last night at a cultural event honouring Bjork, wearing a super sexy dress, virtually no makeup, and a pair of forgettable shoes. BUT – as someone recently explained to me, she won’t wear leather and so, given the more limited range, totally forgivable, non? No but seriously…look at that face. Full Story
The adorable Rachel Bilson the other day in a rare miss – those jeans are assy. Shame especially since she is usually so wonderfully on mark. The shoes though are lovely. Don’t know where hers are from but mine are almost the same from Marc by Marc Jacobs as attached but in turquoise, just a shade darker than hers, still available I think on Shopbop. Full Story
Justin Timberlake in Scotland trying to get out of a bunker. Not an easy shot with an uphill lie like that but it coulda been worse. It coulda been right up against that lip, which is what happened to me on Tuesday when I took a f&cking 9 on a par 5, using 3 strokes to get out of a ridiculous sand trap, ultimately screwing up what was looking like a career best round.

Unconfirmed reports out of London that Sacha Baron Cohen will play Freddie Mercury in an upcoming biopic. Negotiations are apparently underway with Sacha eager to flex his dramatic muscles and transition from Ali G/Borat to serious actor. Good move. And when time comes, he will be back on the Freebie Five. Full Story
Four out of five were together at Bluebell’s christening a couple of weeks ago, another four out of five were rejoined at David Beckham’s birthday dinner earlier this week, and just two nights later, Baby, Scary, and Ginger were out again giggling conspiratorially. UK gossips are already reporting that the deal for a reunion has been sealed and given their resurrected Girl Power, this time it would seem to be true…especially since Mel B and Geri seem close again.

Almost DList… Rumer Willis is on her way. Clubbing practically every night this week, always with ciggie in hand, looking very trim in a pair of black tailored trousers - Rumer seems happy, non? Happy that the plan is working. New hair, famous family, famous friends, stimulants, increased pappy attention, and possibly more if she’s able to keep up with an eating disorder… she’s following the playbook step by step, so far so good.

Bruce Willis in the current issue of Vanity Fair, photographed by Annie Leibovitz in the Caribbean during a family holiday with Demi and their three daughter and of course with Ashton Kutcher. Both Bruce and Demi say they’ve worked hard to make it work well, that things are as they should be, that they all care for and respect each other… which, forgive me for going all Oprah, is pretty damn cool. Full Story
Oh, I mean KatE. No eee. Just Kate. Née Holmes. Now RoboBride to GMD, under fire from Janice Min and Us Weekly and all gossips everywhere for being just that: a wife on automatic, controlled by her husband. And so the friends and supporters are lining up in her defense, most vocal of the lot has been Jada Pinkett Smith who, of course, has given an exclusive interview to – who else? - People Magazine, extensively extolling “Kate’s” virtues, repeating the KatE distinction over and over again, and emphasising what she calls Katie’s QUIET POWER, Katie’s QUITE THUNDER.

Brad Pitt in Prague while Angie shoots Wanted, spending time with his youngest. Damn - look at the lighting in these “candid” paparazzi shots. Amazing init? Even the most militant members of the MiniVan Majority will be hard-pressed not to quiver over these ones…and why not? Brad Pitt is classic Hotness. Full Story
Brad and Angie fight back with photos – obviously not breaking up but still workin’ the media, see?
And on a smut-free tangent for a sec... my first birdie yesterday! Made 2 on a par 3 chipping in from 30 feet, best feeling ever. Headed home today after a short holiday this week, posting all morning until we have to leave later in the day, sorry if it ends up a little light.
Yours in gossip,
PS. Five alarm panic for the McGoslings – Ryan Gosling dared to go to Miami with his boys…which must be the ultimate betrayal, right? Because anyone who goes to Miami, a party city, is a cheating horndog, right? And therefore Ryan Gosling is a cad? And therefore he is single?
Even though it is possible to be together without being photographed, even though privacy is actually possible for celebrities who want it bad enough, even though 2 weeks ago they escaped unnoticed, still the panicked, accusatory emails are flooding my inbox - serious serious dementia. But also the perfect illustration of why they’d encourage the split rumours anyway. Because who wants to deal with this level of lunacy and the impossible weight of McGosling expectation? I’m done.
PPS. My love and affection and hugs to new mother Emily A – I know what you’re doing when you’re nursing…and I approve!
Lucy Liu at a premiere this week rockin’ the wonky, same eye as mine. Though my wonky eye has an added attribute – it wanders as well as it wonks, so not only is it a tad smaller, it also kinda slides to the inside when I’m talking to you. But still…a huge honour to share the wonk with Lucy. Full Story
