SO revolting…have you ever seen anything so revolting? Hollywood Ebola facing temporary vaccination, facing 45 days behind bars, doing whatever she can to escape that fate, and now resorting to exploiting her pets, those poor poor pets subjected to a lifetime of captivity with the skankest ho in Hollwood – there really is no bottom when it comes to Paris Hilton, non? Here she is, juggling three dogs – accessories to be toted out whenever convenient and then ignored the rest of the time, deprived of genuine love and affection that comes with a real animal lover instead of the part-time convenient caring that comes with being owned by Hollywood’s most frivolous beast. Full Story

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, two of the biggest, if not THE biggest players in Hollywood, and if they all play the game, if it’s a level playing field, it’s undeniable then that when these two bring their A Game, they play it better than anyone else. Angelina on promo for A Mighty Heart – there is some buzz that they are trying to push for an Oscar (although smart money early in the race is on Cate Blanchett for The Golden Age) and in the face of so many conflicting and sometimes malicious reports in the tabloids, Angelina is carefully choosing how to pimp her message… first an interview alongside Mariane Pearl Full Story

Penny & Lenny???

Indeed…that’s the story. That Penelope Cruz has moved from Josh Hartnett to Lenny Kravitz and the two are making Spanish rocker sexytime prompting the usual conundrum whenever she hooks on to someone new: is she Bearding or Where’s the Purse? All thanks, of course, to the Gay Midget Dwarf. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

LOVE New York! Arrived late last night, back briefly in Vancouver before heading to Edmonton this afternoon – a few quick lingering thoughts re: Costume Gala etc first…

And had the honour of interviewing the most amazing woman yesterday for eTalk. Her name is Brandusa Niro (no stranger to the fashion cognoscenti out there) editor in chief of The Daily which of course is devoured by every style know-it-all during New York Fashion Week twice a year and editor in chief of the Fashion Mini – like an Us Weekly for the fashion industry, fashion gossip for the fashion insider – now published every month but up to this point sold only in select cities in the US…until now. Available in Canada starting July…love, love, love.

It’s Wednesday, live blogging, check back often for new posts.

Yours in gossip,
Lainey

PS. Re: Cate Blanchett…yes, I’ve seen the photo printed by the UK tabloids accusing anorexia, and I’ve read your emails blasting me for saying she looked great at the Gala. Believe whatever you want but that photo was taken from a ridiculously bad angle under the most terrible light inside a white tent with every kind of weird glare bouncing from side to side and up and down. Girl is naturally slender anyway and also naturally pretty pale. Because she’s not Jessica Simpson obsessively on a tanning bed! Anyway, at one point, I was standing 5 feet away from her. She was not shockingly thin, she was not deathly thin, no one gasped – as suggested by the rags. There were no “murmurs” of alarm about her frame and everyone I was around seemed to be in agreement with her gorgessity, including members of our crew that consisted of a non-fashion dude cameraman who doesn’t know a Stam from a Birkin - even he was impressed by her beauty. But that’s boring right? Stick thin sells papers, period…but nevermind that last Fall she signed onto a film called Cancer Vixen based on Marisa Acocella Marchetto"s real life battle with the disease. By the way – did you know that Christian Bale lost 65 pounds for a movie called The Machinist and no one lost their sh-t? Sorry, I digress. All I’m saying is give her some credit. It’s CATE BLANCHETT and not some learning impaired Hollywood starlet battling the Hollywood standard. You think the formidable Cate Blanchett would succumb to vain starvation? Please.

Hate It

Becks newly shorn – still hot, always hot… but I like the shock blonde way more. This way he looks – gasp! – almost ordinary, non? source  Full Story

Told to be Contrite

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 9, 2007 00:00:00 May 9, 2007 00:00:00

Is it contrition if it"s ordered? You know what the scary thing is? The scary thing is there are some idiots in the world who will actually believe that she means what her lawyer told her to say. The good news however is that finally, finally, finally, Paris Hilton is beginning to understand the cold, hard truth: that she is universally despised, that she is universally regarded as – what Tina Fey called – a piece of sh-t. Full Story

The Bimbo Man-Over

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 9, 2007 00:00:00 May 9, 2007 00:00:00

Not that I don’t think that he’s hot without the shaggy, because he totally is… but wow! Look at the cheekbones and the carefully tousled hair, even a little pout action goin’ on – the new John Mayer with a Hollywood Bimbo Makeover, here at the Costume Institute Gala and last night at the Time Magazine event, MUCH more stylish than that tranny he keeps pissing on, aesthetically definitely a huge improvement but… doesn’t that make the Simpson sting even a little more painful? First she spoiled his talent, spoiled his reputation as a cerebral, sensitive rocker, turning John Mayer into just another musician who thinks with his dick. Full Story

Dying? Starving? Really?

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 9, 2007 00:00:00 May 9, 2007 00:00:00

Cate Blanchett Tuesday night at the Time Magazine event… As you can see, she doesn’t have an eating disorder, nor is she dying, or starving, or emaciated, or frightening. Hate to say it but...told you it was a bad angle photo. Again, in person, at the Gala, she was fine, more than fine – she was lovely. Full Story

Hollywood Ebola Hollywood Ebola shedding tears… and rolling down her window to make sure you see her! Here she is, feeling sorry for herself leaving an attorney’s office yesterday. Apparently she’s hired a new lawyer, rehired her old publicist Elliot Mintz, and is offering to blow appealing to Governor Arnold to avoid a prison sentence. Full Story

Child Pimping Pays Off

How to Make a Career out of Pimping Your Kid – Dina Lohan’s life story. Not content to mother a cokehead (Lindsay) and an aspiring one (Ali), at this rate anyway, not satisfied with not having to work or to worry about money, likely not paying attention to any of the other children, Dina Lohan scored a job with Entertainment Tonight, acting as their exclusive reporter at the Georgia Rule red carpet in New York City last night. Full Story

Forgot to post this about Gisele and Tom at Costume Institute Gala... The arrivals area was tented heading into the main doors of the Met. Members of the press were lined up along both sides of the staircase but as limos and SUVs pulled right up to the front, it’s generally understood that celebrities can take a moment without being photographed for a moment to adjust, touch up, get a pep talk from a publicist before heading onto the carpet. Full Story
