Wintour loves Winona

Lainey Posted by Lainey at July 18, 2007 12:00:00 July 18, 2007 12:00:00

Me too! Anna Wintour certainly has her favourites and Winona Ryder has long been one of them. Also helps that Winona is also a favourite of Marc Jacobs which explains the dress on the cover and her devotion, even before he was “Marc Jacobs”, to his designs. After several tough years, it appears Nonie is one her way back. Full Story

Diaz and the Desperates

Lainey Posted by Lainey at July 18, 2007 12:00:00 July 18, 2007 12:00:00

The new cover of Us Weekly examining why Hollywood’s most eligible women can’t find love. Jennifer Aniston – easy,she’s pathetic. Jessica Simpson – also easy. She’s a tranny. Two Desperates who can only be defined by a Man. But Cameron Diaz? Does Cameron Diaz deserve the same categorisation? Does she deserve to be lumped in with the weakness when of all things, Cam is clearly not weak? Besides, since when did being single suck more than being compared to Aniston and Simpson? Seriously… source Full Story

Mrs Beckham joins the MiniVan Majority?

Lainey Posted by Lainey at July 18, 2007 12:00:00 July 18, 2007 12:00:00

Though she’s loved by gays and gossips, Posh knows the key to America is the MiniVan Majority. And still she can’t shed the stilettos. Love. Her. So here she is with the boys at soccer practise, cuddling with Cruz as Brooklyn imitates Dad, playing sideline mom along with all the other sideline moms and hoping for a feature on the cover of People Magazine. Full Story

Protecting his Property

Lainey Posted by Lainey at July 18, 2007 00:00:00 July 18, 2007 00:00:00

At dinner with my cousin Cat last night – two grown women well into our thirties and when the subject of David Beckham came up, still we had to squeal. And she’s not really the type. But on pure physical loin-pounding quiveration…seriously, who’s hotter than Becks? And what’s hotter than Becks protecting his property – also his wife’s privates – as she descended from their car the other night. Full Story

The gay vote is unanimous. Every ‘mo I know loved Hairspray. And many, many girls too. So if you’re into musicals, be assured Hairspray is not the colossal bore that Dreamgirls was. Scientologists are invincible, non? Still, his success also means Michelle Pfeiffer’s triumphant comeback. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Was it Major??? F&ck the critics… I thought it was Major. And judging from your emails, you did too.

By the way – was that Marla Maples? More on the Posh special later.

Thanks for all your kind words and not so kind words re: the new site design. It is still a work in progress – will continue to keep you posted on improvements.

Most of your Freebie Five nominations have been added for your personal lists. Some of the bugs you’ve forwarded on have also been corrected.

You’ll note that in keeping up with Harry Potter week mine has been updated as well. Alan Rickman is a sexy beast. And Severus Snape is a sexy Slytherin – I still believe.

Am in and out of meetings today, will post on the fly.

Yours in gossip,


PS. All new posts will continue UNDER the Site Brief.

PPS. Will be on TSN’s Off the Record with Michael Landsberg today – check it out!

Gisele Insecure or Bridget’s Wishful Thinking?

Lainey Posted by Lainey at July 17, 2007 12:00:00 July 17, 2007 12:00:00

Trouble is apparently plaguing the world’s most beautiful couple – word is Gisele and Tom are rowing because Bridget Moynihan is scheduled to deliver Tom’s son on Friday which is also Gisele’s birthday. Even though his family is vacationing with the two of them, some say Gisele is becoming increasingly insecure and the tension is spilling over in public. Full Story

Katie Holmes was let out of the GMD’s clutches for a very good reason yesterday: to attend the premiere of Hairspray starring none other than church-mate John Travolta. And free from the diminutive influence of her husband, Katie as you can see is workin’ the carpet hard, giving us a sad glimpse of what could have been. Full Story

Posh: the Primetime Debut

Lainey Posted by Lainey at July 17, 2007 12:00:00 July 17, 2007 12:00:00

Virtually every critic has slammed her special with every disparaging adjective possible. Meanwhile, the British papers are salivating over the savage reviews, gleeful in their premature assessment that the Beckham defection has not gone unpunished. And though the numbers have yet to be announced (at press time), going purely from print at least, it would appear that Victoria Beckham’s one hour debut was a colossal failure. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

You likey?

Nowhere near complete but it’s a start. As always, your feedback is appreciated and valued. But before you email to complain, could I trouble you to read through the Site Brief first? Just a quick and dirty explanation of who and why and what and how and when…

Please also forgive typos and grammatical errors (ie. It’s instead of its etc). There are a few introductions to new features I wasn’t able to write myself or that I’ve yet to have the time to go back and proof. A little bleary-eyed, appreciate your patience?

Finally, a huge acknowledgement goes to Ed and Erwin Choi and JS for their hard work on the re-launch. All I did was sit back and bitch – everything else was in their hands. And of course to all of you for making a part of your smutty social.

Thank you, love you, owe you.

Monday – live blogging, check back often…and NB: New posts today will appear UNDER the Site Brief.
