Hollywood Ebola: prison fellatio pays off

Lainey Posted by Lainey at July 13, 2007 12:00:00 July 13, 2007 12:00:00

Oh reeeeally? The LA Sheriff’s Department is investigating allegations brought forward by the members of the for Los Angeles Deputy Sheriffs that Hollywood Ebola was given preferential treatment, allowed to use a cordless phone when others have to wait in line for the public pay phone and also receiving a brand new uniform instead of a hand-me-down. Full Story

All Smiles…even Posh!

Victoria Beckham doing a Hello Kitty smile!!! Love, love, love. For those of you unfamiliar with Hello Kitty Asian culture – for some reason, my homeland people (the girls in particular) can’t pull off a full frontal grin without hunching forward and throwing their hands straight up in front of their faces like all cutesy cutesy stick a needle in your eyeball. Full Story

The Little Sci Bob

Little Sci and Katie in Germany playing at a park – as you can see, Katie’s yummy mummy style is fashioned after Mrs Beckhams. Perfect ensemble for a kiddie romp, non? The First Family of Scientology is in Berlin to shoot Tom’s controversial new movie and Katie was expected at Berlin Fashion Week but arrived so late they shut her down at the door! Hangin’ off of Xenu’s ride with his Robobride – the GMD can’t get no love from Germany. Full Story

No Photos don"t mean No Love

Who said they broke up? Just because they hadn’t been photographed together for a few months? Rubbish. Joshua Jackson and Diane Kruger were adorable in Cannes, they were equally adorable in London the other night at the Serpentine Gallery party – normally the best party of the summer but decidedly short on star factor this year. Full Story

Holding her own…

Umbrella. Ella, ella, eh, eh, eh. Sorry. But seriously…are you shocked? A celebrity holding her own umbrella? How often does that happen? Here’s Penelope Cruz looking gorgeous on her way to a photo shoot in NYC battling the rain. Yes…I too love the jeans. Pene has been working on Woody Allen’s latest with Scarlett Johansson. Full Story

Shelf Ass Needs a Stylist

Or a new one. Or maybe it’s just her. It’s the curse of the B List, you know? No matter how clever the publicist and how famous the Pipsqueak boyfriend, Jessica Biel is simply a Shelf Ass and a tv girl. And tv girls can’t own the carpet. Last night at the premiere of Chuck & Larry… Jessica wearing something Jennifer Love Hewitt would wear and trying to suppress her ManTran. Full Story

Beckham Landing

Lainey Posted by Lainey at July 13, 2007 12:00:00 July 13, 2007 12:00:00

Clusterf*ck at LAX last night as the Beckhams landed. Fans, photographers, people screaming their balls off… was told it was quite the scene and even the Beckhams themselves seemed taken aback which in itself is a surprise. They flew commercial, they pretty much announced their travel plans, they sent the boys to be taken away first, and then made a slow walk themselves to the car, making sure there was enough time for the paps to cover their arrival… not exactly subtle. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Just in from the red-eye, am in Toronto for a week to host a party for Bacardi Breezer at This is London on Saturday night. More on that later.

Forced to endure my mother again for at least a few days. Right now I can hear her chewing in the kitchen. Am convinced it’s a Chinese thing: for anyone raised in Hong Kong it appears to be a cultural inability to eat with their mouths closed. Have tried to tell her time and again it’s ironically “low classy” of her and I did the same today. She told me it was low classy to criticise one’s mother and then remarked that I’m not aging as well as she did, blaming it on my father’s genes.

A week of this feels interminable so forgive the extra crusty column?

Thursday, live blogging, check back often.

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

Jessica Simpson with Harley Pasternak > Jessica Simpson with Ken Paves. But still… no matter how much better she looks lately, Jessica Simpson will never be my kind of girl. The kind of girl girl"s girls can relate to. Because while she may be a girly girl, she is also a boy"s girl. A girl who lives for a boy, a girl who is validated through a boy. Full Story
