He might be a philandering greedy arse married to a set of concrete tits, but once in a while it"s nice to know he doesn"t think only for himself.... Thanks to all of you who forwarded the article in the Toronto Star, of David"s phone call to a very sick 19 year old from Hamilton, Ontario - at times too weak to talk and fighting for her life - who received a spark of hope in the form of a phone call from the world"s most high profile footballer. Full Story

I’ll admit it…I am a SHAMELESS fan of figure skating – have been for years and I still can’t get past Lipinski beating out Michelle Kwan for gold in Nagano. I don’t dispute it but I do mourn it. But seriously – for any smut addict, figure skating is the perfect sport. The intrigue, the backstabbing, the homewrecking, the catfights, the laughter, the tears, the dance routines – what’s not to love? To say nothing of the outfits? ESPECIALLY the outfits! And you know what’s weird about figure skating when you grow up watching figure skating? For some reason – and this is a mystery worthy of a Ph. Full Story

Most of you know Zhang Ziyi from Memoirs of a Geisha: Sayuri competes with Hatsumomo under the wise tutelage of Mameha and wins the heart of the Chairman. Check out ZZ with her new man at a basketball game the other day – very little, if any, makeup and absolutely beautiful. Better stripped down in fact than dressed up. Full Story

Amid widespread speculation that her marriage is in trouble, Madonna trotted out the husband and the children last night in London for the premiere of Arthur and the Invisibles. But first… Rocco kills me – do you love him or what? I love him. And remember, 15 years from now, wait for the MaddRoc…Maddox Pitt and Rocco Ritchie, best friends and band mates – the future of gossip. Full Story

In Florida last night after his show, maybe it’s just me but I see shame in his eyes. The eyes, the body language – this is not a man who is proud of his conquest or particularly happy to associated with it. Rather, this is a man who is bearing a heavy sense of embarrassment, the same look you’ve likely seen over and over again – on your own face or the face of a friend, after a night of wild partying and drinking, it used to happen all the time for us in university. Full Story

Dear Gossips, Forget community service and a charitable donation – rehab appears to be the new celebrity PR quick fix. Whether you’re a racist or an obnoxious 20 year old with an irresponsible mother or a womanising country music star married to a Freeze Face or an actor who hates the gays, clearly the message in Hollywood these days is to blame the sauce or the drugs and get your ass into treatment as soon as the sh-t hits the fan…COINCIDENTALLY as soon as the sh-t hits the fan. In a word? Weak. Thursday – busy day, live blogging, check back often for fresh posts. Highlight of the week? Definitely Paris Exposed. On the off chance you haven’t heard – she was moving, she put her belongings in storage, she forgot to pay the measly $200 bill, her stuff was auctioned off, purchased by a few entrepreneurial fellows, catalogued, scanned, and posted on the web for your viewing pleasure…at a price, of course. I’m too cheap to fork over $39.99 for the privilege of seeing Paris coked up and doped up and naked and probably taking it up the ass 24/7 but hey – you might enjoy it. And if you do…SEND DETAILS. For a taste before you buy – click here for the trailer…yes, half the free world has goosed her and YES, she absolutely does tell the camera that: I get f*cked in the butt for coke. For clips and screencaps, hats off to the wickedly dirty Jesus Martinez at Drunken Stepfather for gettin’ his smut on so quickly with the coverage. CAUTION: Not safe for work…but seriously, if there was ever any, any, any doubt about Paris Hilton, about just how f&cking nasty she really is, about whether or not she too is a frequent “bathroom visitor” much like Britney and Lindsay, you really should check it out…because Paris Hilton is ROCK BOTTOM. Yours in gossip, Lainey

So she’s being introduced at that reading event yesterday at Sundance and the kids were like: is that Britney Spears? As expected, my girl gracefully took it in stride and promised to work on her dance steps before launching into a song from Oliver! and pulling out Apple’s favourite Seuss. By the end of it, the kids were clamouring to sit on her lap – People Magazine was conveniently there of course – but not before she extolled the virtues of reading: "If we can"t read and don"t enjoy it, life isn"t as interesting. Full Story

Keira Knightley: a protesting jaw?

Uhhhh… NOT sweet. And yes, I get it that celebrities can’t always looked glammed up the ass every day. But that jaw? That jaw scares me. That is what I call a Bulimic Jaw – my girlfriend Beth, a doctor, can attest to that kind of jaw: jutting out at the corners as a result of too much heaving…though of course, let’s clarify in light of her lawsuit that the mere suggestion of an eating disorder on her part is absolutely absurd right??? After all, those photos of her on the beach a couple of weeks ago, cut abs, not an ounce of fat – those photos are simply the result of working out, eating well, and TOTALLY NOT torturing her own body, right? How could anyone even suggest such a thing??? But that’s exactly what a British rag did at the time, which has resulted in her suing for damages, because NO ONE, NO ONE other than the editors of said publication would, in their right mind, be so Cruise to assume that she’s anorexic, right??? Here’s Keira, in London with her equally overnourished boyfriend, cutting a fine line with their cheekbones, their hippy chic, and of course their love of food. Full Story

It has been a while…and the rubber face at the Globes didn’t help either. But here’s a candid we can all quiver over – Brad in NOLA picking up Maddox from school, Angie playing perfect mommy as well. As you know, the First Family has now settled in New Orleans, I’m told Maddox is now thriving in a regular schedule, parents at the immersion school were sent letters a few weeks ago, informing them of the arrival of the Pitts and new security measures that were instituted in preparation, resulting in a change of entrance and exit routes for students in and out of the facilities. Full Story

Also at the Armani show rockin’ a darker, different look. Pink hair swept up, smoky eyes, paler than usual…is your smutty sense tingling? Mine is – stay tuned, will update you as soon as I can.
