No match for a Queen

At the GQ Men of the Year Awards last night in London, Lily Allen was overdressed and overdrunk, arriving in an inexplicably over the top massive gown and getting progressively more licked as the evening wore on, so drunk she dared to disrespect Elton John on stage. They appeared together, with Lily attached to a bottle of champagne. Full Story

To Linda in Geneva, IL - Happy Belated Birthday! And yes, you must punish him! A mom day sounds about right: no time limits, no spending limits, and the kids hang back with the husband. Enjoy it! Happy Birthday Diane with love from Frances who can’t wait to see you this weekend. And Jasia – thanks for the photo from the MMVAs. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

I knew it would be serious pain when my trainer, the indefatigable Hayley McGowan, insisted on running the 10k with me. Running at my own pace would not acceptable.

Which is why I shaved 10 minutes off my practice time!

Please. An hour and 4 minutes is still totally turtle, but finishing is what counts…right?

High fives to all of you around the world who participated in the Nike Human Race on Sunday!

No fives for Helen Mirren. Ugh. The Queen is like a Filthy Scab. Crushing disappointment.

Tuesday – it’s a travel day. Am blogging on the fly, en route to Toronto for the film festival where I’ve just learned… no Clooney. Latest is that he’s not coming. Boo.

Yours in gossip,


Where she belongs

As you know, Jennifer Aniston is guest starring on 30 Rock, back on tv where she belongs…truly a tv girl forever, in the wise, bitchy words of my Gwynnie. First shots of Jennifer shooting with Tina Fey have been released. They appear to be recreating the fountain shots from the opening credits of Friends. Full Story

The Duchess premieres in London tomorrow and will also screen at TIFF. The film is already receiving early Oscar buzz and Keira Knightley is once again on the first list of potential Best Actress nominees. They say she is magnificent. They say it’s her best work. The Duchess tells the story of Georgiana Spencer, Diana’s great x 4 aunt. Full Story

Judging by your emails, you enjoyed it last night, yes? Season 2 premiere of Gossip Girls and the next battle of Blair v Chuck – delicious, right? And proof that in spite of the proliferation of garbage like America’s Got Sh*t Talent, quality can still exist on television without compromising dishy, dirty, and Chuck Bass’s black heart. Full Story

Natalie in Venice

Duana and I disagree on many things – Michael Phelps, her hair, my hair, Anne Hathaway – but we are most diametrically opposed on the subject of Natalie Portman. Duey can’t bear Natalie Portman. I, on the other hand, worship Natalie Portman. Here she is, at various engagements during the Venice Film Festival, looking impossibly beautiful and natural and effortless, dressed down or dressed up. Full Story

Miss Zahara’s turn

Last week Maddox and Pax joined dad in Venice – now it appears to be Zahara’s turn to travel. Seen here – Brad Pitt with his first daughter in Cannes… could Zahara be Toronto-bound? Z to ward off the clingy ex-wife…and tabloid insinuations of a clingy ex-wife hookup? Seems a bit early though, keep you posted. Full Story

It’s ok to love Entourage without loving Adrian Grenier. At this point, it’s actually a requirement. Because it’s now totally NOT ok to think of Adrian Grenier as anything but a douchebag. It all started a year ago, of course, when he first became infected with Hollywood Ebola. The effects of the disease are clearly irreversible, incurable. Full Story

He Comes to Her

I reported last week that Sienna Miller, two weeks separated from Balthazar Getty, was going mad with insecurity. Anxiety temporarily relieved. Balthy came to her this weekend, flying in to London where the two were spotted outside the Groucho Club in Soho. Full Story
