Eva Green, Audrey Tautou, now Emily Blunt… Euro brunettes are the hotness. Emily Blunt, here in Vancouver with boyfriend Michael Buble. She supported him at his album release party the other night and yesterday, False Creek, they had lunch at Provence where she was head to toe perfection. Her skin alone is making me mad with envy.

Helen Mirren is The Queen. An Oscar-winning performance that swept awards season and provides some insight into what Queen Elizabeth II is really like. Did you know she can drive? And does drive? And stomps around in wellies? The Queen DVD comes out on April 24th, I have five copies to give away. If you’re interested, send an email to Lainey@laineygossip. Full Story
I know there are a few hold-outs. Those of you who still fondly recall Matthew McConaughey from A Time To Kill, from Sahara, from before his post-Sexiest Man Alive decline and cling to his quivering past. But it’s been a year, girls. It’s been a year of incessant cheese, sweat, and slime. Full Story
LOVE it. LOVE her without red lipstick. Gorgeous Gwen Stefani in the pages of Bazaar without the severe crimson, with softer muted shades – “pretty” isn’t a word usually associated with Gwen. But Gwen really is so pretty. Pretty in a good way. Pretty in a way that’s not generic. Full Story
Nicole Kidman actually looks less immobilised than usual. And the top of her outfit is fantastic. So is Granny Freeze giving Botox a break? Nicole received the Order of Australia yesterday, honoured for her philanthropic endeavors, advocating for improved medical services for women and children in addition to encouraging funding support for cancer research.

Britney actually looking kinda cute out shopping yesterday with that budget ass wig. You will note though... by Britney standard – which is regrettably a lower one – kinda cute is all relative. No, the shoes don’t work. And the straw hat is so damn bumpkin it hurts me. But I do like the dress and I especially like the pose – some old school Britney sass…nothin’ wrong with that. Full Story
Hardcore Lopez fans keep insisting she hasn’t and will not go with the Xenu, even though she recently admitted that her father has gone with the Xenu for 20 years. They assert that she is simply friends with Leah Remini and the Robobride, that she is pragmatic about her relationship with the Gay Midget Dwarf and has her own motivations for sharing his limelight.

Needless to say, I am not the most profound person. I don’t watch Oprah and live the light and sell positivity and keep my heart pure. I judge. I’m shallow. I’m superficial. But even if I wasn’t all those things, even if I was a more evolved person, I still don’t think I could ever ever ever bring myself to make a sexy time with Pete Doherty. Full Story
She’s headed back to Malawi – official reason is because she is “overseeing the building of a children"s health care center” but gossip is already swirling about her intentions to adopt another child. This time a 3 year old girl called Grace. Funny that. Isn’t the newly christened Pax Thien Jolie, brother of Maddox, Zahara, and the Chosen One, also 3? Like last time, her rep is vehemently denying the reports. Full Story
There was a moment last night, during the Friday Night Lights season finale, when Kyle Chandler was looking at his onscreen wife Connie Britton in the most intimate of scenes between two people, even more intimate than sex, and I think I actually believed for a second that no man has ever loved a woman the way this FICTIONAL man was loving this FICTIONAL woman.
It’s pathetic, I know. To get so Notebook’d about a tv show. To get so Notebook’d about anything, actually. But that is Friday Night Lights. Will say it til I’m blue in my Chinese face:
Friday Night Lights is without equal.
Thursday – blogging all day today, check back often for fresh posts.
Yours in gossip,
PS. The New Bitch is not Katie Couric, not Meredith Vieira. MUCH younger, entirely different industry.
And I love them all! My Gwyneth, Kate Hudson, Liv Tyler, an adorably pregnant Naomi Watts, and of course Julianne Moore. Julianne Moore who does NOT have an Oscar and the equine Hilary Swank has two? WTF??? On a tangent for a sec: was having a discussion with a deliciously hunky homo called Nelson a few weeks back and we were lamenting Julianne’s Oscar-free bookcase, both of us agreeing that Charlize Theron’s Monster was nothing next to Julianne’s Far From Heaven because, as Nelson asserted, if you switch the two, if Julianne played Monster, she’d have been just as outstanding…but could Charlize have played a 50s housewife married to a ‘Mo? With such subtlety and precision? Hell. Full Story
