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

Taupe finally confirmed herself yesterday what we’ve now known for months – she’s pregnant with her second. She’s also, unintentionally of course, using it to her advantage with the MiniVan Majority. Check out Jennifer Garner yesterday at the Baby Einstein 10th anniversary event yesterday wearing curtains. Full Story

Have been riding the Demi Ashton love train for a while now. Demi and Ashton make sense. Right and perfect. Even more so now since silly schoolgirl Michael Phelps daydreams rule my life. Only problem – few of us infant-coveting cougars have Demi’s genes. Yes, yes, and money and her surgeon too. Full Story

Rumey’s Family, Rumey’s Man

Last night at the LA premiere of The House Bunny, Rumer Willis’s entire family showed up in support. Yet another occasion illustrating how Demi and Bruce have turned divorce into harmony. Even this blogger bitch from hell can appreciate that. Love that everyone allowed my Rumey to have her spotlight. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Freebie Five is still broken. If it were working, today’s new additions would include Alexandre Despatie and his hunk of silver hotness and the gorgeous Lolo Jones, so gracious in defeat she’s in a class all her own.

More to follow on my exclusive from yesterday re: the McGosling reunion and am heading to Seattle today for Radiohead!

Also big ups to Nina Dobrev of Degrassi who stars in MTV’s The American Mall from the producers of High School Musical. Nina dropped by TRL the other day, shared a mutual gushy moment with the Jonas Brothers, and then paid a visit to Regis who seems these days to have trouble remembering his own name. As a friend of mine said recently, Kelly Ripa is not given enough credit for saving him from his senility every morning on live tv.

Yours in gossip,


Friday Night Girls

My favourite show. But no one watches. Or not enough of you, although I’m very proud there have been so many converts. The new NBC strategy? To attract move viewers, they’re sexing up the ladies. Check out Minka Kelly, Adrianne Palicki, and Aimee Teegarden c*ckteasing in the pages of GQ on a football field in Texas with an old pick-up in the background. Full Story

Granny Freeze: like Mimi at the Hotel

Lainey Posted by Lainey at August 20, 2008 11:05:24 August 20, 2008 11:05:24 has just posted an article listing the worst celebrity hotel guests ever. Not surprisingly, Amy Winehouse makes an appearance with her bloody cuts and her food fights. Also Johnny Depp and Kate Moss, when his head was a mess and he decided to trash a hotel room. Full Story

The new 90210 will premiere on September 2nd. You may recognise one of the stars of the show Shenae Grimes from Degrassi. Or not. Because Degrassi is enjoyed by millions and egregiously unrecognised in Canada. Here are Shenae and Jessica Stroup shooting scenes at The Komoko, location for the Peach Pit. Full Story

Cage Match: Dina Lohan vs Debbie Phelps

Back in 2004 when she was still cute and not yet anorexic or a junkie but well on her way, Michael Phelps was asked about a celebrity crush. He answered Lindsay Lohan. These days, his celebrity crush is Cameron Diaz. Unfortunately, Lilo won’t let him go. Lilo was texting Billy Bush (???) the other day during Access Hollywood’s interview with Michael’s mom Debbie Phelps. Full Story
