The Heartache Diet

When I saw Jessica Simpson in Cannes, she was already tighter than she’d been in months. Told me she was back on her extreme diet and work out plan in preparation for Major Movie Star which starts shooting in July. Shame to waste such energy on a sure box office bomb but as you can see, her hard work is paying off. Full Story

Trash hits Toronto

No clue why she was invited. No one has a clue why she was invited. Maybe she offered to pay her own way? MMVAs, Tara Reid was a presenter, seemed so out of it she could barely string her words together. Or walk. And word is at one of the after parties, she was a total total bitch. Observed to be totally off her tree – the adjective used to describe her was quote… METHY. Full Story

The MuchMusic Video Awards

A block party/awards show – the MMVAs in my hometown Toronto last night, a long standing summer staple and they never ever disappoint. Shocker of shockers, Avril was almost tolerable, making it through the event without putting up her middle finger or spitting – can you believe it? And then came the virtuoso acceptance speech for her People’s Choice Award. Full Story

Works for me… On the heels of last week’s media contract debacle getting in the way of overwhelmingly positive reviews for A Mighty Heart, check out Angelina Jolie on two occasions this weekend out and about with the famed Chosen One. Full Story

The Supportive Wife & Her Supportive Friends

Miss a marquee match? Never. Miss a major photo opportunity? Madness. A hot pink belt just in case we miss her? Always. Of course Victoria turned up to support her husband yesterday. And of course she brought along two very high profile guests – none other than the GMD and his RoboBride: he intently watching footballers with large muscular thighs running up and down the pitch, she wistfully remembering what could have been. Full Story

The Beckham Boys

Between Brad and Becks…delicious daddies everywhere. Same haircut all around and the same shade of dark blonde – here are the boys and their dad dressed in the same uniform, celebrating their father’s big win. Sigh. Time flies. Cruz Beckham is already 2. Cruz is walking, Brooklyn is a little man, and Romeo is still my favourite. Full Story

Farewell in Victory

Quite a way to cap off his European career – after getting dumped by England and benched for the early part of the season, Becks regained form and became a key part of his team’s championship run, inspiring talk yet again of repping his home country for Euro qualifiers and possibly at Euro 2008 in Austria and Switzerland. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Justin said Wha????

You will LOVE, LOVE, LOVE his words for the Shelf Ass. And so what if it was printed in an unreliable British tabloid?

Angelina Jolie interview with Larry King – I’m sorry, I have no idea what she said. Because I was too busy laughing at Larry King. The man is a geriatric BUFFOON! And he needs to join Barbara Walters beside a pool in Palm Beach where they can natter away at each other for the rest of their lives!

Seriously…it was pure comedy. Angie’d be goin’ off about shooting emotionally charged scenes, about Mariane Pearl and her indomitable spirit, and suddenly old Larry interjects with the most inane questions ever. And grunting at the oddest moments. Like at one point he asked her about filming the pivotal scene when Pearl finds out her husband has been murdered. Jolie explained what it was like in that house, on set, how the entire crew was gutted about the fact that they were interpreting something so terrible, so terrifying that had actually happened to an actual person…and she gives this detailed, sensitive answer and the next thing know, Larry jumps in with…

Yeah so how many takes did you have to do?

Killed me. Best comedy ever… The man is barely surviving on the fumes of his career.

Friday, live blogging, check back often for fresh posts.

Yours in gossip,

She WILL be a star. I mean Rumer Willis of course. Rumer who wants so badly to be one. Rumer born to Bruce and Demi, who hangs with Lindsay and pines for the flossy flossy life and everything that comes along with it. Rumer who is now a regular at Winstons and Teddys but claims not to do drugs… Rumer who is now capturing the interest of the pappies… Now Rumer has a job. Full Story

This Is Why

Said it time and again – the reason Johnny Depp is not on the Freebie Five is because Johnny Depp is a Lifetime. More than just one night of raucous rockin’ of your headboard, with Johnny, why and how would you say goodbye? Check it out - a clip from Julia of Johnny promoting Pirates in the Land of Hello Kitty, with Junior Hello Kitties, at once absurd and yet adorable, Johnny the guest of honour attending a children’s performance meticulously choreographed and rehearsed on his behalf. Full Story

Pregnant for Freedom?

Rumours have been swirling for a week or so now – that Nicole Richie is pregnant, based first on a photo of her with a bulgy belly (always a reliable indication) and then because some tabloid pushed the story forward. Ever the clever publicity whore, Nicole has remained silent on the issue, much in the same way she remains silent on most of her issues knowing more people will talk about them if she doesn’t talk about it them herself. Full Story
