Kim Basinger has been embroiled in a bitter custody battle with ex husband Alec Baldwin for years. And because Hollywood hates women over 40, her profile over the same period has been significantly lower while Alec’s career continues to thrive. But enough bra burning for one day… this is about Kim in Germany for some event yesterday showing off some serious thinnification. Full Story
Oh this is cute. SOOO cute! Check out Miss Zahara yesterday in NYC wearing her very own name tag. I’m a cold hearted children-hating cow but even I have to gush a little … As you were probably well aware, it’s been social awareness week for the Pitts with Brad speaking at the Clinton Global Initiative and pledging matching funds of up to $5 million for the Make It Right program and Angelina addressing a UN session on refugees.

One of the suckiest things about flying West/East is that it eats up your entire day. Am headed on an early flight to Toronto leaving at the crack of dawn but landing well into the afternoon so can only blog now in the middle of the night and then not again until regular blog schedule resumes Friday. Am sucking up to you with some birthday giveaways and an update on the Unfunny Douche. Please forgive?
In Toronto to celebrate a dear friend’s wedding and also tonight – participating in the Cues for Kids event in support of Street Kids International http://www.streetkids.org/ways_to_donate/cues_for_kids.htm at the Rivoli. Drop by and say hi!
Yours in gossip,
New issue of Hello Canada featuring George Clooney on the cover with an exclusive interview inside in which he discusses controlling his fame and public life, hanging out with his famous friends, and his growing social profile. The photos are delicious and as usual, he gives a charming, interesting interview, saying he can’t believe the craziness surrounding the Pitts, that travelling with them is a nightmare, and dishing on his mancrush Matt Damon with a cute little anecdote.

Rarely do both Simpson sisters look good together. Ashlee has been looking great for a while. Jessica’s taken longer to get there. But now that Harley Pasternak seems to be winning the war over Ken Paves, Jess is coming around. Here they are leaving lunch the other day, each with their own distinctive style, each looking pretty cute. Full Story
She is dating the infamous Rick Salomon of One Night in Paris. According to Page Six she is partying harder than ever before, worrying friends over her health, especially since she has Hep C. Wasn’t there a Page Six blind item a few months ago about a heroin-shooting humanitarian? Everyone at the time bought the easy bait and claimed Angelina Jolie. Full Story
For a refresher, please click here. A hometown disappointment continues to disappoint with his ridiculous behaviour and outrageous demands. Still shooting his new movie close to home, apparently he has to wear some kind of prosthetic or padding that makes him hot and is obsessed with trying to cool down. Full Story
I am officially obsessed with Gossip Girl. Surprisingly SO much better than the books which are actually kinda sh-t.
The show however is sublime. Perfectly cast with one irritating love him/hate him stand-out in particular: the boy who plays Chuck Bass. Something about the way he speaks – that sneer, how he doesn’t move his lips while he’s moving his lips – very Ryan Phillippe circa Cruel Intentions. Back when Ryan Phillippe actually mattered.
Sinfully enjoyable and definitely worth checking out – at least before it gets cancelled. Good shows always do.
My love and gratitude for all your well wishes – thank you, love you, owe you. And a few new giveaways to prove to prove it.

PS. Never take your birthday off…but always take the day AFTER off. To recover!
PPS. Hit ‘em with the same stick: with his driving record, why is Kiefer Sutherland still allowed to drive??? Why is Britney Spears still allowed to drive???
Seriously, this perv gets creepier all the time. Joe Simpson, interview with Roger Friedman. Joe is currently producing a new television series starring Angie Harmon. This breaks my heart. I adore Angie Harmon. Maybe it’s a Texas thing? No matter. The point is the douche has created for himself quite a career on the backs, or fronts, or noses of his children. Full Story
