Dear Gossips,

Better Helio than Marie but in the end the MiniVan still couldn’t stomach Mel B. But seriously, sweet Xenu, please end the writer’s strike already…

And did Xenu get to Andrew Morton? The book, our hope, the truth… has the GMD shut it down? Sigh. Like Paris Hilton, Tom Cruise cannot be felled. More on that later.

Wednesday – new posts all day, check back often!

Yours in gossip,


PS. Am off to Toronto tonight to host the launch of Secret’s new Because You"re Hot campaign.  Click here for your chance to win a night of hot experiences!

PPS. Happy Birthday to Allison on your 33rd

PPPS. And to Katrina too – Happy Birthday and thank you for reading the site for as long as you have.

PPPPS. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie rarely keep swag, if ever. They do however thoughtfully donate the items to local charities. Therefore Angelina is of course not Cheap & Crafty. Wrong year.

No Country Quiveration

No Country for Old Men is the most critically film of the year positioning Javier Bardem and a surprising Josh Brolin as possible Oscar contenders. Javier always. But Josh? Yes…Josh. Now no longer known as just Barbra Streisand’s stepson and Diane Lane’s husband who may or may not be a wife beater stemming from an incident during which the cops were called to the house on domestic abuse claims, Josh is finally the centre of his own attention. Full Story

Angelina vs Marion?

Biopic vs Biopic. Will it be Angelina’s Mariane Pearl vs Marion Cotillard’s Edith Piaf come Oscar night? Here’s Marion last night at the Gotham Awards – stunning, stunning, stunning. Love, love, love. Both performances were world class. But at the risk of waking the Brangelunatic beast, Marion’s was truly transformative. Full Story

There is a thin line between sad and absurd. Many of you will find this story sad. And I can see why for you it would be the case. But when I close my eyes and picture it, when I picture being there and this sh*t going down, I … I… I’m sorry. I’m terrible. But I giggle. This is not kind, no. Full Story

Only because they cuss with such abandon and beauty, a degenerate dirty gossip lover like me can’t help but love it. Oh…and Colin Farrell and Ralph Fiennes together don’t hurt either. Why do I love it when Ralph drops the C bomb? It’s the trailer for In Bruges, Colin’s new movie that will open Sundance in January. Full Story

Bond Betrothed?

Daniel Craig’s girlfriend Satsuki Mitchell was wearing a mother of a diamond on her ring finger yesterday prompting speculation that he has proposed and they are to be married. My producer Laura is probably getting a rope ready to hang herself right now. But in spite of Laura’s woes, Daniel and “Sats”, they are a great match, non? Photos from Wenn Full Story

Ebola Upstaged and Wants to Spawn

Love Ellen but what the hell is she doing contaminating her show with Hollywood Ebola Paris Hilton? Ebola was on Ellen today using Nicole Richie for attention, dishing on Nicole’s pregnancy and the baby shower and telling the world that she intends to procreate, thereby assuring that her disease will be perpetuated indefinitely. Full Story

Lovely Body, Cheese Pose

Christina Aguilera showing a beautiful baby bump on the cover of the new Marie Claire. All good…but the pose. The one hand behind the head pose? So weak. So Beyonce. So should be outlawed, don’t you think? source  Full Story

Chicken Fried Pregnant…Again?

Why is trash so fertile? In Touch, the last bastion of truth (snort!), is reporting that Britney is 4 weeks along and that the father is JR Rotem, that greasy extremely unattractive music producer with the unfortunate name who loves riding her for publicity. The magazine also claims Rotem has confirmed their report, telling the publication that “It’s True”. Full Story

The Re-Thinnification of Lilo

Lainey Posted by Lainey at November 28, 2007 08:12:06 November 28, 2007 08:12:06

Reports have surfaced that Lindsay Lohan is drinking again. That she is drinking because alcohol was never her problem. That drugs were always her crippling vice. Her rep of course disputes the claim. But does her body? Remember when she practically disappeared two years ago? In the space of 6 weeks, after an inadequately explained hospital visit, Lilo and Nicole Richie thin-offed all over NYC and LA. Full Story

Downsized for Marc?

Lainey Posted by Lainey at November 28, 2007 07:49:19 November 28, 2007 07:49:19 is reporting that Victoria Beckham is indeed the new face of Marc Jacobs for Spring 2008. Chav is in for 2008! This is of course a mayjah coup for Posh given Marc’s reputation and his popularity. And a mayjah slap in the face to British pundits who prematurely pronounced the Beckham’s American arrival a failure. Full Story
