Dear Gossips,

Dirty Sexy Money. Great title, great show, announced yesterday at the CTV Upfronts with Donald Sutherland on hand to support. Starring Peter Krause, debuting this Fall, Dirty Sexy is one of next season’s most highly anticipated new shows. Had the opportunity to interview Sutherland, was super nervous – me I mean – but he is a legend and the sweetest ever.

Also a member of the cast present yesterday – Samaire Armstrong, best known perhaps for playing Anna on The OC, one time some time friend of Lindsay Lohan…with hopefully not too much in common anymore? She’s adorable but, well, she seriously wasn’t lookin’ too good.

PS. Did you know it’s pronounced Sameerah?

And then there’s Gossip Girl based on the books – latest offering from The OC’s Josh Schwartz. Have a thing for high school shows, and Gossip Girl is 100% a high school show: 90210 in NYC for the Facebook generation.

Will there be another Friday Night Lights? Will another series achieve perfection? Doubtful. But they say Dirty Sexy Money is the next Sopranos…stay tuned.

Had the pleasure of joining Proud FM in Toronto this morning for a radio chat. Morning segment is hosted by Ken Costick and Mary Jo Eustace. Mary Jo Eustace, formerly of What’s for Dinner, and more notoriously formerly of KFed Jr. Seeing Mary Jo in person, 40 is the new 30, SO beautiful even at the crack of dawn with nary a trace of makeup, and funny and sharp and reserved in that waspy, classy way…

And all passed for Tori Spelling?

Golddigging greed can clearly make a man deaf, dumb, blind, and straight up f*ckin’ stupid. Yes, Junior, I’m talking to you.

Finally, Shemar Moore kissed me in an elevator (watch eTalk tonight) and had the pleasure of hangin’ with the cast of Degrassi. Here’s Shemar with eTalk host Tanya Kim and me with my girl Du and the adorable Lauren Collins…aka Paige.

My dress is The Poem – Joyce Ma for Sweet Chemise. Keeps the wobbly bits in check.

Tuesday – live blogging all day, check back often for fresh posts.

Yours in gossip,
Lainey

Oh.My.sh-t. Now THIS is for the Hall of Chav!!! This is what Victoria Beckham chose to wear to the Glamour Women of the Year Awards in London. Ha! Look closely y’all. WARNING CRASS…but look closely at the cooch. It’s heave on one side. Yet another attempt to usurp attention away from everyone and anyone else. Full Story

My Gwyneth eats pizza???

Must be organic, made from ingredients grown on some mountain, sprinkled with heavenly rainwater and blessed with a lotus. Check out my Gwyneth the other night and the scraggly hair you hate so much looking freshfaced and casual with a take out bag after dinner at a pizza joint. As you can see she’s leaving with a doggie bag. Full Story

Still Employed…but starving?

Apparently Enrique Iglesias was joking when he said last week that he was divorced and single. Which is about as funny as his other jokes about having a small penis. Anyway, here’s Anna, rumoured to still be his wife and therefore still employed, at the 22nd Sports Spectacular the other day, not that she could ever have been called a professional athlete, but even less so these days given her alarmingly little body. Full Story

Criss Angel – Cam’s new dude, another one of those extreme illusionists going to the brink of death in order to make headlines, turn a quick buck. Latest stunt involved him in a locked box and cement, can’t be bothered to care what exactly he was doing… just know that prior to kicking off his gimmick, he sent a media-friendly message to his lady, guaranteeing him more column space than had he kept his mouth shut: “This is dedicated to my new girl. Full Story

The Ultimate Love Letter

Total cheese…but I can’t help it. Am swept away. And it wasn’t even for me. A little over the top of course but the Pitts have a message to convey, a conveniently timed f&ck you to the tabloids who insist their love is on the rocks. Au contraire, Brad Pitt is clearly in love with his baby mother, or at least wants you to believe it, and to show her, and us, he commissioned a love letter engraved in gold, enclosed in a gold envelope, delivered on the occasion of the couple’s triumphant trip to Cannes. Full Story

Am embarrassed. Call me Cruise but have to be honest… since his haircut, John Mayer has been crossing the Hot/Not Spectrum, gliding from Nasty Pasty to Surprisingly Sexy. Am I off my tree? Is it clever photography? Have a look – promo shots of a much prettier John…not enough to quiver but certainly enough to stare. Full Story

Over…already? Or over…for now? Kate Hudson and Owen Wilson came out recently, just weeks after getting comfortable with beign photographed together in public, suddenly split because she was reportedly tired of his commitment-phobe bullsh-t. Word is it happened around Memorial Day but while some reports indicate finality, others say it’s another case of John Mayer and Jessica Simpson – make up break up all the time. Full Story

Miss Pageant Not So Perfect

So it was Vanessa Minnillo – playing and posing with knives alongside Lindsay Lohan last year, reflecting an image far removed from the sweetheart Miss America hanging off of Nick Lachey’s arm. The photos were taken last year and while Nessa may not have been partaking in whatever it is that pins Lilo’s pupils, safe to say the girl has a dark side – a side that doesn’t necessarily jive with the polished white teeth and the tacky ass pageant gowns that regularly make us Rossum and a not so inner diva that appears to be raging its ugly head. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Do you f&cking LOOOOVE Sarah Silverman??? Do you???

With Hollywood Ebola in the audience at the MTV Movie Awards, Sarah straight up called Paris Hilton a down and dirty criminal whore…and they ate it up, gossips. Thunderous approval, unanimous ridicule, everybody hates Paris, Sarah Silverman is the baddest bitch EVER, and as of Sunday night, just before midnight local time, Paris is now behind bars doing her time. More on that later.

Am on assignment with eTalk in Toronto for a week. CTV Upfronts are on Monday and Canada’s Walk of Fame next Saturday. Show hosted by Eugene Levy, inductees this year include Nickelback, Jill Hennessey, and Catherine O’Hara. Love Catherine O’Hara. Had my first Barbara Walters moment earlier this year when she cried during our interview. Catherine O’Hara is a DOLL. Canada’s Walk of Fame ceremony airs on Sunday, June 10th on CTV.

My thanks and appreciation to the brilliant Joyce Ma designing for Tension Clothing and Sweet Chemise for styling the entire trip. Will be covering the red carpet on the Walk of Fame in a caramel-coloured dress she calls The Courtesan, I call it the Cover-Up. Her dresses camouflage all the loose bits… love, love, love.

As for the weekend – Ryan Gosling was in Vancouver. First hand observations to follow – see below.

MTV Movie Awards will likely take up much column space, could fill more than the home page. Don’t forget to scroll down, click on “View More Articles” to make sure you get all caught up.

Monday – on junket and Upfront duty, will post on the fly.

Yours in gossip,

PS. Janine from London – what’s up darling? Will be in the UK 3rd week of June. Fancy a drink or several?

PPS. Quick reminder – blog works in reverse chronological order. Recent posts appearing at top, older posts further down. Again, click on View More Articles at bottom of page, make sure you get everything.

Turned herself over last night after the MTV Movie Awards, is now supposedly behind bars at a facility in Lynnwood, a plan devised the sheriff’s office to limit pappy intrusion. That’s probably why she’s crying. And leaving the windows down so photographers can see her crying. Same old sh-t. Full Story
