Widely criticised yesterday for trying to control the press, Angelina Jolie revealed on Jon Stewart that it was a move made by her lawyer and her representatives and not something she knew about. As you would expect, her attorney has also stepped forward to admit that he went overboard in his attempt to protect his candid client and that she in no way had anything to do with trying to get members of the media to sign a contract prohibiting them from asking personal questions and saying negative things about her. Full Story

Launched her denim line in NYC yesterday – as you can see, Victoria brought the full-on Posh. Love how she has to jam her feet into all her shoes, love how she’s now adopted the Celine Dion Lunge as part of her signature pose, love how you could stick a sausage in her mouth and not get lipstick smeared on the sides, and especially love her ski jump nose. Full Story

Shelf Ass Who???

Pip has a HUUUUUGE ego. And most of the time, his ego is total Rossum. But on occasion, especially when his ego doesn’t appreciate getting trumped by an overzealous publicity team for a B List actress, Pipsqueak’s ego is extremely entertaining. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

So they’ve finally removed Paris Hilton from that cushy little room at the infirmary and transferred her back to Lynnwood where she’ll likely serve out the remainder of her sentence in solitary, on a hard little bed hopefully with her head beside a festering toilet.

Our last days of joy before her disease lashes out in freedom, stronger than ever, with that greedy little fool Barbara Walters shoved half way up her ass. Enjoy it while it lasts.

Sorry… have been distracted the last few days trying to get over a new book and it’s time for a new recommendation anyway. The Post Birthday World by Lionel Shriver – an extremely uncomfortable read, as is the case with everything else she writes including of course We Need to Talk About Kevin. She has that gift of sneaking up on you, subtly forcing you to confront the worst parts of yourself, the parts so easy to suppress during a dinner party as you collectively rage against the common enemy only to realise later on that you have more in common with it than you think. Definitely NOT a beach read but a read that stays with you for ages.

Thursday, posting all day, refresh browser often.

Yours in gossip,
Lainey

PS. Thanks to what seems like the entire city of Calgary for the thorough, insightful description of Cowboys. Hot girls who rub up against dude for big tips – as much at $10K during Stampede – and who apparently get half a boob job paid for if they stay six months … sounds like my kind of place. Am headed to Calgary late July…will have to drop in.

I went for a walk with the dog yesterday through the forest. My legs haven’t been shaved in 3 days, I have two zits on my chin that I can’t stop picking, and wore the wrong underwear so I had to keep picking my wedge. However, I am not shooting a reality tv show. Leaving her hotel this afternoon for a “walk” in the park, trailed by cameras for her one hour special, here’s Victoria dressed for the occasion. Full Story

Barbara Walters was presented with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame today. And guess who made an appearance? Kathy and Nicky Hilton. Coincidence or conspiracy? Esteemed journalist or senile cow with media favours at the ready for anyone rich enough to afford her friendship? Old Bag… please! Full Story

Angelina Jolie out and about in NYC today, face made up, lovely pink lips, dressed in white with matching bag and shoes, and clutching what appears to be an older model Blackberry. Am sad and pathetic to have even noticed. Anyway, Angie will be on Larry King Live tonight and also on The Daily Show with the one and only Jon Stewart. Full Story

Cate’s Coat

And her man too. It’s winter in Australia, right? Cate at a screening during the Sydney Film Festival with husband Andrew Upton. That coat is a f&cking treasure. And her hair, and her glow, and her smile. And no…he’s no Brad Pitt. And clearly she’s definitely a bigger person than shallow, superficial, petty me. Full Story

Her Best Look

She came on the scene in 2004 – Jude Law’s new arm candy with shoulder length wavy unkempt hair and a cool boho style. From one season declared a style icon even though it’s the only look she does well. High glam is clearly not Sienna. But wispy and vagabond definitely is. New layers and a shade darker, looks kinda hung over, check out Sienna in London the other day back to her roots. Full Story

Did you read it? Did you love it? I loved it. Fiercely loved it. And I don’t understand – why must a book become a movie? I remember being at work and not working. Reading instead and crying over my keyboard at the end, and Erin sitting next to me rushing me through. And two days later she did the same thing. Full Story

“Stable” condition? Oh please. So Hollywood Ebola has ADD and is claustrophobic. The way they’re talking it’s like none of the other inmates have suffered any worse. But still it warrants VIP treatment and coddling, conveniently from some power player who may or may not have received financial favours from her grandfather… And still the sympathy train continues: Poor Paris is deteriorating, poor Paris is on the verge of a nervous breakdown…who the hell is buying this sh-t??? How about Poor Paris just needs a double bump? A line of coke and a c*ck come next week, when she gets out, and all will be right again. Full Story
