Harley’s back! Tranny’s gone! Check out Jessica Simpson the other day wearing super short daisy dukes and cute little top hiked up to show off a fit, taut, and toned body courtesy of celebrity trainer Harley Pasternak, whose influence always reverses Ken Paves’ cheap and trashy effect. Full Story
Laura Wasser left her because she is uncoachable and uncontrollable and both attributes were fully on display yesterday. As news broke that a judge deemed her a “habitual and frequent” drug user and ruled she is to undergo drug testing twice a week, embroiled in a nasty custody battle over her boo boos, as the court of public opinion has already ruled her an unfit parent, Britney still insisted on going out last night, first stopping at Winston’s and then dropping in on Hyde.

Unlike what happened in Toronto, the barricades did not crumble over Brad Angelina hysteria last night in NYC at the premiere of the Assassination of Jesse James. As you can see, the Pitts once again arrived in coordinated gorgessity – he in another well cut dark suit, she in a boring textured LBD. Full Story
At the Unity for Autism event yesterday, met a delightful young man called Lee with encyclopaedic knowledge of entertainment and a newfound obsession over Barry Manilow. Lee informed me that Barry has a new record out today – his greatest hits from the 70s – and insisted we profile the album on eTalk. I told Lee that Barry’s probably not the show’s demographic. He implored me to do what I could.
Then I come home to get updated and it turns out yesterday’s Queen Fight involved Barry refusing to do The View, basically telling Elisabeth Hasselbeck, and by extension Barbara Walters, to jump up his ass.
Lee, you see, clearly has his finger on the pulse.
Tuesday, will be online all day, check back often for new posts.
Yours in gossip,
New details are emerging from the Spears/Federline custody battle and TMZ is now reporting that the judge in the case determined yesterday that “there is a habitual, frequent, and continuous use of controlled substances and alcohol by (Britney)." As such, Britney must now be randomly tested twice a week although in spite of the findings, the custody split remains at 50/50 even though KFed is pushing for 70/30 in his favour. Full Story
Oh but she’s good. Very, very, very good. So good we almost didn’t notice. Maybe even better than Biel. Turns out Katherine Heigl is mayjah player on the publicity front. The new Aniston indeed. So here she is, just one day after winning the Emmy, conveniently at The Ivy, where no one goes without a purpose, for lunch when stopped by the paps – of course – and a gaggle of fans screaming for her autograph.

Us Weekly says Reese and Jake, on the heels of their big TIFF debut for Rendition, have called it off again…and for good this time. Fact? Fiction? Or diversion? I’d wait before pulling the plug definitively on their love. Michael Clayton party last week in Toronto at the Design Exchange - my sources tell me that security snuck a giggly and tipsy Reese (apparently “she was havin’ a good time that night!”) in to the bash.

Loving Justin in public continues to open doors for Jessica Biel. Elevated only on the strength of her Shelf Ass and the Pipsqueak association, Jess continues to relentlessly climb the Hollywood ladder and her latest accomplishment is yet another feather in the cap of her brilliant publicist. A meeting with Dreamworks? A meeting with a movie mogul? If not for JT, how the f&ck else would Jessica Biel get a meeting with Jeffrey Katzenberg??? Have a look – the other night, Justin pulls up at a hotel in Beverly Hills with his girl beside him, dressed rather appropriately for a business dinner. Full Story
Tina Fey created 30 Rock. Tina Fey produces, writes, and stars in a show just anointed Emmy winner for Best Comedy. As such, Tina Fey is the quintessential example for strong women in showbiz: that you can be smart without sacrificing sexy and without sucking someone off Tina Fey delivers the word. And you will recall, Tina Fey openly, without hesitation, went on Howard Stern and called Hollywood Ebola Paris Hilton Full Story
Fired by her powerhouse lawyer Laura Wasser – who not surprisingly is insisting that the termination of her representation means nothing – and also fired by her management team, Britney has been abandoned by her professional allies and, worse yet, banned from the Chateau Marmont for dragging her chicken fried grease all over the establishment.
