Am en route to Cannes, on assignment for eTalk covering the Cannes Film Festival! Needless to say, if there’s any year to come, this would be it: Brad, Angelina, George and the Oceans cast, Jude, Natalie…and many, many more, including those who make the trip just because, just because it’s the place to be. Will have smutty radar cranked, keep you posted…promise.
Have to say… was actually impressed with how Lindsay Lohan handled the heat last week – the worst week to be out on Georgia Rule promo, coinciding with the News of the World exposé on her alleged drug use. Don’t get me wrong - girl is still high off her tree but she didn’t hide and she can actually put a sentence together during an interview…which is the difference between the Lilo and the Hollywood Ebola.
Notice the Media Strategy difference? That they haven’t been sending Prisoner Paris (at press time anyway) out for damage control speaking opportunities? And why not? Because this heiress clearly can’t think as quickly as she can get down on her knees.
Will still be blogging full time while I’m away, can’t wrap my head around time difference so check back often for new posts.
Yours in gossip,
PS. Font all wonky - can"t figure out why. Maybe Europe makes font wonky? Will try to fix...sorry!
PPS. A big gay flick of the wrist salute to Scott and Claudio – birthdays, parties, Madonna photos … love, love, love.
PPS. Heartfelt thanks to Todd Babiak of the Edmonton Journal for the lovely piece in Sunday’s paper. Click here for his take on the "the monster that is the global celebrity market".
The cutest ever. Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady in NYC, ran into a few of her fans who asked for a photo. So Tom Brady – three time Superbowl winner Tom Brady – had to take a backseat and play photographer. Love how Gisele obliged with the goofy posing… adorable, non? And then the genetically blessed couple walked off perfectly, hand in hand, his hand on her ass while waiting to cross the street. Full Story
You will laugh your ass off… so pathetically obvious, so pathetically cheese, so desperate, so contrived – only Paris Hilton, you know? Only Paris is capable of this kind of blatant Rossum. All because of 45 days in the slammer…do you love it, or do you LOVE it? Check it out – Hollywood Ebola in virginal white, with her Mommy and her Wittle Sister, hands clasped piously, leaving church yesterday as cameras just happened to commemorate the moment… can you believe this piece of sh-t? And what is it? Like the 10th day in the row she’s worn white? Can a new wardrobe save her from prison? Can a new wardrobe close the black hole between her legs? Undecided on the first count, absolutely NOT on the second. Full Story
Leave it alone already!!! You know when something is so wrong, you just know, you KNOW IN YOUR BONES it can never be right? A Point Break sequel is every kind of wrong imaginable. Every kind. But Hollywood is Hollywood and Hollywood will desecrate anything for the sake of a dollar. And this time they’re f&cking with Point Break. Full Story
It appears that the only way Avril Lavigne can make a headline is off the coattails of someone else – what I like to call a Fame Freeloader…and she does it every time. Every time she’s newsworthy it’s only because she’s comparing herself to Britney Spears. And now…and now Avril wants to be Angelina Jolie? Interviews in Australia, talking sh-t AGAIN about Brit…makes sense of course since Avril herself is charisma personified. Full Story
I LOVE Toni Collette. Loved her in Muriel’s Wedding and loved her in About a Boy – Fiona’s “yeti” coat just about killed me. So we just saw her at the airport in Nice, was standing next to her at baggage claim attended by 3 airport hostesses – the fanfare accorded to a jury member at the festival, I suppose. Full Story
Ten years ago, barely into her 20s, Kate Winslet was nominated for an Oscar, starring in the highest grossing movie of all time. Not exactly a low pressure situation. But for all the excuses made on behalf of Lindsay Lohan and the others – that it must be so difficult dealing with fame, that it can’t be easy living under a microscope…somehow, if acting is really what you’re serious about, it is possible to end up normal. Full Story
TMZ has obtained an exclusive open letter from Candy Spelling to Paris Hilton, a public lecture if you will on the merits of classy behaviour...this from a woman who raised another woman who stole another woman’s husband and openly waged war against her own mother. Rich, non? Wonder what Kathy Hilton is going to say about this. Full Story
Objectivity continued… As told to People Magazine- naturally – Katie Holmes is Miss Popular on the set of Mad Money in Shreveport, Louisiana treating the crew to cupcakes and goodies for the third week in a row. Last time it was ice cream, then there was special pizza flown in from Chicago while her husband, with Little Sci, was equally hospitable and friendly with everyone around them. Full Story
Sienna Miller and Jamie Burke in NYC the other day – starting to look a lot like co-star Keira Knightley and Rupert Friend pre-haircut, non? And I hear the parallels don’t end there, though both couples are shaking themselves out quite nicely…which is good to know. Still…between Jamie and Rupert, I think I take Jamie. Full Story
