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

First publicity photo released of Nicole Kidman from the new Baz Luhrmann epic titled Australia. To me it looks like Madame Tussauds…others however have said she looks divine. Really??? Divine? Maybe it’s just me. source  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

Lindsay Lohan “candids” taken on minibreak in the Bahamas. Amazing how flattering she is from every angle, non? Amazing also how he’s kissing her while keeping an eye on the cameras, yes? Still…despite the alleged drugging, nice to see the Lilo isn’t emaciated. She looks good, actually. Full Story

Again, not my type (the mouth, remember?)…but I do know he’s yours. So you will love these new photos from GQ and also this quote: People say: how come you haven’t moved to Hollywood? What I hear is: if it were me I’d be over there making blockbusters, screwing starlets and counting the zeros. Full Story

Emasculating Dandy

As if Matthew Broderick wasn’t dandified enough…now it turns out Dandy is a Dandy because his wife insists on it. And she’s not afraid to share that fact with the public either. Says SJP - who recently took a shot at Gwen Stefani for pricing regular women out of her clothes, exorbitant of course compared to her own line Bitten retailing for under $20 an item – Matthew has no say in his wardrobe and her authoritarian approach to what he wears has resulted in a sort of style emasculation…as explained in the new issue of Glamour:"Before he knew me, he felt very confident about dressing on his own. Full Story

The King of Queens goes off the air after 9 seasons so Leah Remini, better known as Jennifer Lopez’s BFF and scientological life coach, is promoting a new project: an internet series called In the MotherHood.

Dear Gossips,

Ending the week off on a wonderful note – Friday Night Lights has been renewed!!! ‘Course I’m a cynical bitch, and seeing the way Grey’s has imploded, I fear a pristine, undefeated season could be soiled by a sophomore slump. But enough neurosis…the point is: Taylor and Tami and back!

Clear eyes, full, hearts… Can’t Lose!!!

Friday – am blogging while packing and prepping for a 2 week trip starting Sunday. Hard to sympathise but being away from my boys for 14 days – my husband and my Marcus – makes me sad. Bad news is I’ll be traveling on Monday, posting in between airports. The good news – instant smut from the trenches! More on that later.

Have a great weekend!

Yours in gossip,
Lainey

PS. Objectivity rules the day – kindness to the GMD…can you believe it?

PPS. Happy belated birthday to Lindsay W in Halifax! I know yesterday was your 29th, I know you’ve had a rough go of late but you have the sweetest friend in Allana and her gift is on the way! Big hug, hang in there...

Last time my Gwyneth looks this sh-tty she was pregnant…just saying. Love that she’ll go to Orso without a trace of makeup. But don’t love her Chef’s Costume (???) and those pants are cutting her off at the wrong place. As for the hair – you all hate the hair. I know. Full Story
