La Fromage: Au Revoir Vegas

Lainey Posted by Lainey at December 17, 2007 07:32:56 December 17, 2007 07:32:56

C’est fini! Celine’s Vegas run is officially over and, as expected, because she is Celine, she exited the stage with an extra helping of super cheese overload giving her fans what they came for. Only Celine Dion could perform on a stage with Santa Claus riding a bike. And only Celine Dion could screw her face into these expressions without bursting out laughing. Full Story

Granny Freeze: Aussie No

All that Botox must be freezing her style receptors…because Nicole Kidman has never, ever been so off the mark. Holy sh*t! Check her out, front and back, at the Australian premiere of the Golden Compass at the weekend. The hair has been geriatric frizz for a while now but what the ass is up with the silver granny suit? WTF??? No one in their right f&cking sh*t is going to say this is cute. Full Story

Kylie Minogue: Aussie Yes

Lainey Posted by Lainey at December 17, 2007 07:00:22 December 17, 2007 07:00:22

Kylie has said that since cancer, she’s had to live with a new body, that the shape simply won’t go back to what it used to be. Judging from her appearance on the X Factor finale the other night, this is a good thing. Because not only is she alive, she is also workin’ some serious, serious curves. Full Story

Chicken Fried Unwelcome

First – the Piece of Me video. In case you haven’t seen it, click here. Better than the Gimme More disaster, yes. But that’s like comparing sh*t to diarrhoea. At the end of the day, it’s still sh*t and the saddest part is, there are glimpses - small, small flashes - of her former brilliance that seem unreachable no matter how hard she tries. Full Story

Why Xenu Loves Will

Will Smith once said that he owns the 4th of July, referring to his impressive Independence Day box office record, not only with the title film’s impressive performance but with most of his summer blockbusters, regardless of how well or how poorly they’re reviewed. Suffice to say after this weekend, Will Smith not only owns the 4th of July, he now also owns Christmas, with I Am Legend securing the best December opening ever, making Will Smith the most bankable movie star in the business. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Britney’s video for Piece of Me premieres tonight on 20/20 and will be YouTube-able 30 seconds later. Click here for a  brief clip – apparently Britney gets back at the paps and the tabloids for messing up her life and then dirty dances on a bar. How original.

On the plus side, like Gimme More and most of the tracks on her album, the song is good. In fact, Blackout is good. So good Rolling Stone named it to the list of Top 50 albums of the year and put Piece of Me 15th on their ranking of top 100 songs of the year. Of course she deserves none of the credit but still… Chicken Fried’s new material is more than a little listenable.

Friday! Blogging all day – refresh refresh refresh. Scroll down and click on VIEW MORE ARTICLES for posts you may have missed, including the Best of 2007.

Have a great weekend!

Yours in gossip,


PS. To Stephanie – 21 today? Happy Birthday!

PPS. And to Sabine from your friends who love you – get ready for Saturday night. Happy Birthday!

PPPS. Madonna is not on Holiday Detox. Neither is Reese Witherspoon. Also not Drew Barrymore. Wrong riddle.

The Daily Bitch… Please!

I mean seriously… Mischa Barton is in Belfast to promote Closing the Ring. So she decides to invite a pap up to her luxury hotel room to take unflattering photos of her posing on her bed wearing an outfit not even I can excuse. The animal print is unflattering. And what the ass is up with that vest? Did she raid Pocahontas’s grave and send it to a gay tailor? Look at the sequins! The sequins! And the feather fur! WHAT THE FACK??? Why not just have her publicist arrange a little stroll down the street? Or position him outside a restaurant? Why invite the dude to your room for glam shots? Bitch… please! Jennifer Love Hewitt doesn’t even smell this desperate! Photos from Wenn Full Story

Marion Cotillard: Best of 2007

Lainey Posted by Lainey at December 14, 2007 13:14:36 December 14, 2007 13:14:36

Sorry. I’ve been harping about her for months. But if you’ve seen La Vie en Rose, you know why. And non-English speaking actors are often ignored. Marion Cotillard’s performance as Edith Piaf is nothing short of extraordinary. Even legendary. Some critics have described it as “monumental”, a performance that should, and will, stand up for all time. Full Story

Gay Biker Chic: Best of 2007

John Travolta had a lot of fun promoting Wild Hogs – leather pants rubbin’ up on his privates all day. It’s only too bad they made him leave the studded dog collar and leash at home. But still…how can you not look at this and giggle? 2007 was quite a year at the box office for the reformed Sci, having strayed from the Church in Toronto during too many a male massage therapy sessions. Full Story

Chicken Fried Fourth Grade

Damn. KFed’s lawyer is the business. And Britney must be paying a lot of money for him to be defending her ex husband. Poetic. So as you know, Britney bailed on her deposition the other day claiming she had fallen ill, unable to leave her hotel home due to anxiety, but getting papped at 2am at a gas station and zooming around town, begging the question: how sick could she have been? She was also seen out and about yesterday oblivious to her responsibilities. Full Story

Junior Hits Paydirt: Worst of 2007

Lainey Posted by Lainey at December 14, 2007 10:46:33 December 14, 2007 10:46:33

Sweet suffering Xenu… KFed Jr knocked up Tori Spelling and we had to endure the debut of his bank account. One Rossum photo after another Rossum photo, but this one has to take the cheese. Look at them. Look at Tori all sweet and mothering and still ugly. And Junior holding his tiny child, trying to look contemplative and transformed. Full Story
