Dear Gossips,

Clear eyes..

Full hearts…

Can’t lose.

Oh but they can. Especially on network television. Tonight could be the last ever, ever, ever episode of Friday Night Lights. Why? Because you aren’t watching. Because instead of watching a show loved by the likes of Tina Fey and Jenna Fischer, America is watching losers suck ass on American Idol. Because good taste is dead.

If however you are interested in reviving good taste, perhaps you’ll tune in tonight… otherwise Friday Night could be lights out forever.

As for what tonight’s episode will be about…spoiler alert! Fans of the show, you’ll recall the other day I reported on my interview with Jason Street who said that he is the subject of tonight’s cliffhanger. Now TV Guide’s Michael Ausiello is dangling a pregnancy. So did Street knock up that waitress who saved him from the girl who wanted him to pee on her?

Now read that sentence back. Sex, pregnancy, boys, girls, and golden showers…. Read it back and tell me again if you aren’t watching FNL – why the hell not???

Oh and forgot to mention – one more thing that Jason Street/Scott Porter said about Taylor Kitsch: I asked him whether or not TK would be at the Superbowl and any of the parties. He said no way. He said Taylor hates “the scene”, he never parties. Which is what Taylor said himself when I spoke to him in December. An actor who isn’t a liar? Shocking.

Posted late in the day yesterday – please scroll down for articles you may have missed.

Friday – am online all day. Have a great weekened!

Yours in gossip,


PS. Jack Nicholson is not having trouble with the help. Neither is Toby Maguire. Or Sean Penn. Or Jake Gyllenhaal.

Sienna in a Sling

At the Awards Of The London Film Critics" Circle tonight in London – Sienna showing yet again that she’s super cute casual but totally assy on a carpet, probably not wearing Marchesa but unfortunately just as sh*t. It’s the detailing around the shoulders and chest – looks like a Breast Sling. Full Story

Orange Posh on the Runway

Now her dress matches her skin. This is the best of Victoria Beckham today in NY at the Project Runway finale. She’ll be using her style expertise as a judge and as you can see she’s taking the responsibility very seriously. LOVE that photo of the four of them – note that Kors, Klum, and Nina are all laughing but all Posh can manage is half a smile. Full Story

Salma Hayek took her man and her baby and the paps for a walk yesterday in New York, giving photographers a safe glimpse at Valentina and giving us an image that is sure to sell the world over. Check at Salma bundled up and chic and her fiancé Francois caught in a passionate embrace. He reminds me of Daniel Craig. Full Story

Pippy’s New Movie

Sweet Xenu… is there no such thing as an audition anymore??? That Justin Timberlake is an accomplished and talented musician is undisputed. Because although Pipsqueak’s balls may not have dropped, he can certainly sing. And dance. And write. And produce. All at the same time. But an actor he is not. Full Story

Weekend Quiveration

The new cover of Entertainment Weekly featuring the two sure bets at for this year’s Oscars. It seems a foregone conclusion that Daniel Day-Lewis will take Best Actor and Javier Bardem will take Best Supporting… Even George Clooney has conceded: “If you want my honest opinion, I think it’s going to be Daniel Day-Lewis. Full Story

There Could Be Oscars!

The LA Times is reporting that they’ve reached a deal and should it pass the vote this weekend, Hollywood could be back to work as early as Monday! Which means that television will be back to normal in about 6 weeks! But that still doesn’t totally save Friday Night Lights. Sigh. If however NBC decides to be kind and finish off the season, production could begin in time to complete 22 episodes for a definitive send off… unless the show is picked up by another smaller network. Full Story

Kate & Liv

Lainey Posted by Lainey at February 8, 2008 08:17:25 February 8, 2008 08:17:25

I love that they’re friends. I love that Liv was holding Kate’s wrist while they were talking last night at the Calvin Klein party. I love that they are so great to look at individually, and ridiculously amazing to look at when they’re together. What I don’t love is the baby fever – a fever that is continuing to build with every Kate Hudson public sighting. Full Story

New Dark Hair, Same Dirty Face

Lainey Posted by Lainey at February 8, 2008 00:00:00 February 8, 2008 00:00:00

Lilo went dark yesterday, seen here leaving the James Blunt concert, and looks much, much better. Unfortunately the Dirty Face still persists. Seriously, what is wrong with this child and her foundation/self tanner/bronzer/blush issues??? As you can see, Lindsay is rockin’ a little bloat around the face… which actually could be a good thing. Full Story

The GMD & Cher

Lainey Posted by Lainey at February 8, 2008 00:00:00 February 8, 2008 00:00:00

Cher is coming out of retirement and she’s hitting the talk show circuit to promote her new tour. Seriously… is she hard up for cash? Why do you these people promise to hang it up only to take it down five minutes later??? Anyway, this morning on Good Morning America, Cher revealed that she once dated the GMD. Full Story
