Dear Gossips,

Tuesday was a travel day: Cannes to Nice to Frankfurt to Toronto to Vancouver. Am actually writing from Toronto, 3 hour wait, the last leg of what will be a 24 hour trip home. Miss home.

As such, am bleary-eyed and mildly brain dead. Please forgive typos and incoherent babbling? Detoxing from Cannes is a bitch.

Wednesday, promise, will be back to normal as soon as I sleep it off.

Also want to acknowledge all of your emails over last 2 weeks. I read each and every one and though I’m terribly rude not to reply, please know how grateful I am that you are supporting the site, reading the smut. Thank you, love you, owe you.

Yours in gossip,
Lainey

In Poor Taste or In Great Jest?

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 29, 2007 00:00:00 May 29, 2007 00:00:00

Nicole Richie’s Memorial Day BBQ invitation – her rep says she was being sarcastic. I actually believe this. But sarcastic or not…are her words in poor taste? Or does she have a wicked sense of humour? Some are calling it irresponsible – some say given that young girls out there are starving themselves to look like her, writing something like this does nothing to deter the alarming thinnification of our youth. Full Story

Faith Pays Off?

Many of you have ripped my head off for believing in Britney. Indeed, it’s been a tough sell. And still, it’s like a compulsion. Which is therefore why it’s so gratifying when she actually does something not entirely stupid. An open letter posted on her website with a candid, though at times incoherent explanation of her “reality”. Full Story

2nd Time Promises

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 29, 2007 00:00:00 May 29, 2007 00:00:00

As expected and as you already know, Lindsay Lohan is back in rehab…this time not at Wonderland, that f*cking joke of a treatment facility, but at Promises, where Britney did her time and countless others too. Including Ben Affleck. As expected, her publicist is asking for media distance to allow her client to straighten herself out, which would certainly be a noble request if her client didn’t actively pursue the attention to begin with. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

After 16 days in Cannes, finally leaving for home tomorrow and not soon enough. Am ready to detox and dry out…which just goes to show – am old and lame. Because for some, for the Eurotrash jetset and for Lindsay Lohan, full time partying is a lifestyle, though in Lilo’s case, that lifestyle is about to come to an end…hopefully behind bars.

Cannes Film Festival closing weekend – saw Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson the other day, still very much in love and another case of misguided gossip based solely on a lack of photos. As for Diane… I think, for the first time, I think I finally get it.

Monday, back to live blogging, check back often for new posts.

Yours in gossip,

The Line Between Smut and Sad

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 28, 2007 00:00:00 May 28, 2007 00:00:00

At a certain point, it ceases to be fun. At a certain point, it becomes dangerous…and very, very sad. Britney came close, Britney came extremely close. And now Lindsay Lohan is verging. I looked at these new photos and the snark was gone, replaced only by… pity. Once upon a time, a beautiful young actor died on Sunset Boulevard, and while Lilo isn’t a fraction of what he was, at the same time, it would suck if she doesn’t get the chance to try and fail miserably. Full Story

Daniel & Elaine

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 28, 2007 00:00:00 May 28, 2007 00:00:00

As you probably know, Lainey is the nickname, Elaine the one. And when Daniel Craig says Elaine… my loins, my loins, my loins. He pronounces it properly too. “Ell-laine” as opposed to “eeee-laine”. Love, love, love. Also love, love, love Darren, my Main Mo who misses me dearly, sent me a clip of this hilarious sketch for Comic Relief in the UK – Daniel with the incomparable Catherine Tate. Full Story

Piss … or Bust

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 28, 2007 00:00:00 May 28, 2007 00:00:00

Jessica Simpson and John Mayer on a minibreak in Cabo the other day having what looks like a very serious discussion. She seems like she’s protesting the piss, he appears to be insisting on it as exchange for having to dumb his ass down. Apparently no resolution to the impasse. Is she finally growing a spine? Is she standing up to the Golden Shower and saying N-O, love me for who I am? Not for what you can urinate on? If so… respect. Full Story

The Thinnification of Rumer Willis

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 28, 2007 00:00:00 May 28, 2007 00:00:00

Rumer out and about with Hayden Panettier, the next child star trainwreck waiting to happen. Appears to be some thinnification going on here so let’s play! End of May, Rumer Willis looking still within the normal spectrum but – to my smutty anyway – increasingly thinner than we’ve seen in the past. Full Story

My Gorgessity

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 28, 2007 00:00:00 May 28, 2007 00:00:00

Gwyneth leaving the gym the other day looking freshfaced and beautiful and toned and grumpy. My girl took a lot of heat the other day while picking up Apple from her daycare and covering up Wacko Jacko style. Now ordinarily, the sh-t that comes out of her mouth is indefensible. I’ve also wanted to kick her in the teeth on occasion and you know I worship her snotty snot and her better-than-you attitude. Full Story

The Supportive Wife

Pretty adorable, non? Ashley Judd cheering on her man, hot Scot Dario Franchitti this weekend who won the Indy 500. As you can see, she is clearly is #1 fan – and looking at him, who can blame her? Ashley has scaled back work over the last couple of years, focusing on getting her head right and on tackling some lifelong demons, bolstered by his unfailing encouragement. Full Story
