How utterly original. No wonder they’re married. Because what says made for each other like matching public spittle? And on an album cover no less? Can you picture Avril’s quiver? This is Deryck Whibley of Sum 41. This is their upcoming release – watch out you don’t choke over the artist genius. Full Story

B’s father manages Destiny’s Child and his daughter’s solo career and that of Kelly Rowland. Wonder if poor Kelly is getting the shaft. Or perhaps it’s a case of Lindsay Lohan disease? Kelly was performing at the ThisDay Music Festival Sunday in Nigeria and collapsed on stage and was taken to hospital. Full Story

Mandy Moore had that problem with that DJ, now Kate Hudson. From Chris Robinson to Owen Wilson – total upgrade. But from Owen Wilson to Dax Shepard? Not a universal improvement aesthetically by any stretch. In fact, under certain light, with the right character and the right script (The Royal Tenenbaum’s) his nose can actually be kinda hot. Full Story

Posh & Becks: the choreographed first weekend

First full weekend in Los Angeles, Victoria and David spent most of it undercover but for a very, very high profile visit with the boys to Toys R Us. First though – Posh paid a visit to Jay Leno on The Tonight Show on Friday, smiling a lot, giggling a lot, but through it all, always completely posed, every angle perfect, every movement practised, every expression planned from the moment she walked out on stage. Full Story

Kev Paves has returned, and just behind him, so has Jessica Simpson’s tranny. Banished under the classier eye of Harley Pasternak, The Tranny has been resurrected by her tacky ass stylist – both in Miami to celebrate the launch of her new swimwear line. As you can see, Ken brings out the cheap. Full Story

Having worked with at-risk youth at Covenant House Vancouver, having watched so many of them go in and out of treatment, I understand that relapse is a part of recovery, that every clean break means clean time, and clean time is an achievement unto itself – a good foundation our kids can hopefully add to over time. Full Story

Some exclusive dirt on Hollywood Ebola. Last week – a photo shoot spanning a few days at her house for German GQ and her own clothing line (WTF??? – more on that later). Apparently she has huge, huge, huge portraits of herself hanging from the walls. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

I’ve lived a deprived life, I think. Because up til yesterday I’d never ever peered inside a Hooters. But it’s summertime in Toronto and Hooters on John Street is open to the sidewalk so for the first time, I saw for myself the Orange Shorts. Amazing. Must dine there today.

It’s Friday – the LA Galaxy will “present” David Beckham at what they call a “low key” ceremony this afternoon. Something like 400 journalists expected, not known if Victoria and the boys will show but it’s not like her to pass up an occasion, non?

Finally the weekend! Enjoy!

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

PS. This is for Vee: the evil C can kiss my Chinese ass. Stay positive… am thinking of you.
