Rossum and the Astronaut

Lainey Posted by Lainey at August 9, 2007 09:10:48 August 9, 2007 09:10:48

Seriously…this is all time. All.F&CKING.TIME. The most nauseating Rossum ever!!! Is that redundant? First, Rossum at some party last night wearing red and waves and her trademark teacher’s pet smile. Full Story

Making Kiki Cool

Lainey Posted by Lainey at August 9, 2007 08:51:53 August 9, 2007 08:51:53

Simon Pegg…that’s how. Check out Simon and Kiki shooting How to Lose Friends and Alienate People in NYC this week. Simon plays Toby. But of course he does, which if you ask me is a HUGE compliment. Also attached – Kiki meandering around the city without support, letting her ladies loll about with abandon, looking far from glamourous – the antithesis to Victoria Beckham. Full Story

Best New Look

Can’t get enough of the new Mischa Barton, pictured here in NYC. Dark hair, jagged layers, pale skin, clear complexion, big eyes, the most wonderful nose, and a healthier body…love, love, love. I know it seems like a photo shoot but it’s not. At least not an “official” one. Full Story

The Chosen One in Chicago!

Angelina Jolie arrived holding the Chosen One to resume work on Wanted in Chicago but only after celebrating Maddox’s 6th birthday at the weekend dressed in camouflage with matching face paint. Am jealous. My parties always involved cheap Chinese relatives who made a habit of re-gifting lame presents. Full Story

G’s Worst Cover

Lainey Posted by Lainey at August 9, 2007 07:12:11 August 9, 2007 07:12:11

W Magazine – super arty and high fashion, so it’s not unusual, the Beckham sex spread notwithstanding, for the publication to not only render its over subjects virtually unrecognisable but also often embarrassingly unattractive. But still… this is an all time achievement in ugly. Full Story

Britney: Bares Boobies, Could Lose Boo Boos

Lainey Posted by Lainey at August 9, 2007 05:35:24 August 9, 2007 05:35:24

I’m sure by now you’ve seen Us Weekly’s newest cover…but have you seen the rest of the series? Cut to a couple of a weeks ago, after her infamously pathetic attempt at a video shoot, during which she twirled clumsily around a stripper pole and stared listlessly off into space with her dog, Britney rounded up several extras from the set, including an opportunistic college punk, and took them back to the Standard where she ran around topless and drunk off her tree. Full Story

The Model Parents

Tony Almeida was Lindsay Lohan’s bodyguard from 2002 – 2005 and is graciously dishing on his former charge after what had to be a rather enticing offer from In Touch Magazine. But still…even though the story has been procured by a paycheque, it’s hard to deny its validity: Tony says the Lohans sucked ass as parents. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

It’s a long weekend in Canada. Am away from home on a short family getaway with limited internet connection. As such, only short postings today – see below – and, barring major Hollywood disaster, nothing regular until Wednesday.

A thousand apologies for the inconvenience. Am so sorry for screwing up your smut and grateful for your understanding.

Thank you, love you owe you,

Yours in gossip,

As is the case with LaineyBooks, we are still awaiting certain tech upgrades before properly launching the LaineyMovies page. But if you can forgive the anticlimactic introduction, here’s the inaugural movie review written by Michelle Crespi, a properly educated journalist and not some smutty internet hack. Full Story

Alli Makes the Difference?

Lainey Posted by Lainey at August 6, 2007 11:07:42 August 6, 2007 11:07:42

Since the disastrous OK Magazine meltdown, the tawdry story of her video shoot hysterics, and her dramatic scuffle with the paparazzi in Vegas, Britney has scaled back her crazy, abstaining from the every night club schedule that usually precedes a breakdown and reconnecting with cousin Alli Sims. And it would appear that Alli’s reinstatement into her life has resulted in some improvements. Full Story

Lilo in Long Island, now Utah

Lainey Posted by Lainey at August 6, 2007 12:00:00 August 6, 2007 12:00:00

Not in rehab but on Long Island… Lindsay Lohan has returned home, staying at her mother’s house with her sister, actually succeeding at flying out of LA undetected into NYC. You see? It IS possible. As you would expect, Dina has told the press that Lindsay is doing “fine”. And the father wants to see her. Full Story
