Every day I receive emails campaigning for Viggo Mortensen on the Freebie Five. Don’t hide. I know you’re out there. So this is for you. One of the most highly anticipated gala premieres at the Toronto International Film Festival this year is David Cronenberg’s Eastern Promises starring Viggo and Naomi Watts. Full Story

Tickets on sale now at As legend would have it, shortly after splitting from Nick Lachey, Jessica Simpson showed up at lead singer’s hotel room wearing nothin’ but a trench coat. Full Story

Hot and Cheese Douche

John Mayer shopping in NYC. You know, it’s really too bad about the attitude. And the peeing. And the fact that he’ll be performing on a f7cking Carnival Cruise. Because if you take away the cheese from the douche, JM is admittedly attractive. He even wears pants well. But the peeing cheese cruising is irremovable. Full Story

Someone or No One?

Drew Barrymore oddly glammed up at Jet in Vegas on Sunday night on the arm of a dark dashing man. Can’t place him at first glance…can you? But even though it’s only a side shot, it’s plain as day – this dude is almost the hotness. Almost. It’s the jeans again, gossips. Full Story

Purging Ebola

As hypothesised the other day – Nicole Richie appears to be phasing out Hollywood Ebola and in doing so undramatically, she leaves Paris no opportunity to use the end of a friendship to fuel her own agenda. If true… Well played, well played. Full Story

Who is What?

Sorry to be crass but it’s like comparing sh-t to diarrhoea? Between Britney and KFed, who is what? On one hand Britney – eternal trainwreck with stinky feet, seems incapable of handling her boo boos, alleged drug use and erratic behaviour, and on the other hand a punk ass golddigger who’s only earning potential comes from exploiting his ex wife. Full Story

Am overcome with jealousy. Ross Matthews, the “intern” on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, is name dropping Gwyneth. Bitch. I wish I could name drop Gwyneth. The two have been fast friends since he saw her on a carpet and asked her, “Will you be my best friend.” She said yes and promptly emailed him. Full Story

Canadian Idol and Sass Jordan Forever

So I went to Canadian Idol last night. My first time, wanted to check it out. And I know you what you’re thinking because I was thinking the same. You go in there thinking you’re too cool. You go in there thinking you’re above the screaming idiots. Full Story

Sienna & Sean Bean?

Lainey Posted by Lainey at August 14, 2007 07:06:48 August 14, 2007 07:06:48

That’s the word coming out of the UK…because of course the two are filming together and Sienna’s skank is always attached to her co-stars. Apparently she can’t stop drunk calling him and invited him over for dinner recently and made him beef stew. Random! Anyway, Sienna is 25, Sean is 48. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Because my husband is addicted to coffee, can’t start his day without one, my mother has been terrorising Starbucks locations in Toronto this weekend asking for a Wendy Boe. Unfortunately, many of our local baristas don’t know Wendy Boe, especially when a Chinese Squawking Chicken is asking for it.

A Wendy Boe is a Venti Bold. In the way that Chinese people can’t eat with their mouths closed, so it follows that they also can’t pronounce the consonant at the end of a word.

Stand up becomes Stan Up. Venti Bold is Wendy Boe. And she’ll be ordering them in Toronto until Monday August 20th. Heads up if you work at Starbucks.

Weekend smut: Britney going bra-less but feeling the heat. And Hollywood Ebola is now attacking our children. It will never die.

Monday, blogging all day long, refresh often.

Yours in gossip,


PS. The Beyonce Vancouver ticket giveaway ends tomorrow (Tuesday)! Another concert opportunity coming later …stay tuned!

PPS. Tonight. Finally. The Hills Season 3. I am a shallow person. Yes…I watch. But you know what’s even better? The Hills Aftershow on MTV Canada… so popular and so deliciously dishy it has now been picked up by MTV in the USA. Dear America, you will LOVE The Aftershow. And you will love that sexy bitch host Dan Levy. Promise.

Iconic Overstatement

A huge honour. It is Vogue’s biggest issue, its most prestigious issue. And Sienna Miller has been chosen to grace the September cover. The timing, of course, is perfect. Sienna is currently making a big push for her fashion line Twenty8Twelve. In spite of the dark eyebrows, which appear to have been lightened since the shoot with the magic of photoshoppe, I actually like this cover. Full Story
