Am writing this from my Blackberry. Due to my absence today, I"ve asked my brilliant and talented friend Duana to guest write a piece. Du is a screenwriter which means she"s a real writer - not some trashy chinese internet hack who babbles incessantly. Thanks Du - love you! So. Entertainment Weekly’s 100 Stars we love right now. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

At eTalk, I never ask for assignments. If they send me, it’s cool. If not, it’s cool too. But apart from being a gossip for life, I am above all things a proud Potter-head through and through. And so I begged, begged my producer Laura way back in March for a chance to cover a little bit of Potter-mania leading up the premiere of the fifth movie. When the schedule came out, she put me on it… am now indebted to her for life.

Attended the screening for the OotP on Friday and interviewed the kids on Saturday. Due to a press embargo, I unfortunately cannot say much more about the film beyond this: far, far, far from disappointing. Exhilarating in fact. You will love.

Am still in London, beloved London, shooting all day for eTalk on Monday, posting intermittently.

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

PS. To Ellie and Hilary – much smutty love for the lovely evening on Saturday. Thank you, love you, owe you. Ended up in Mayfair at a club called the Funky Buddha where blonde girls in casual uniform give massages at the drop of a hat…for a fee, of course. Cheesy and pervy – my favourite combination. Big hug for Kathy and the girls who led me there. Look forward to more wildness Wednesday night.

PPS. Only 24 hours left ‘til the Monster returns. Enjoy it while you can.

English Gorgessity

Seems fitting. Am in London. Am in love with London. Am in love with Kate Winslet. Kate Winslet’s new ads for Lancome… Total gorgessity. Also the first still of her and Leo from Revolutionary Road. Look at him. Look at him looking at her. Look at that quiverating hotness. What I would give if he looked at me so. Full Story

Bumpwatch wrong again

Supposedly she’s been pregnant since March. Hmmm…really? This is what happens when expectant speculation is based on an overcoat and an indulgence at lunch. Here’s Demi wearing a rather fitted shirt the other day and showing very little sign of bulge and baby though more than enough sign of a chill. Full Story

Hittin’ it Young

Colin Farrell’s new piece – she’s 22. Just a shade older than Lindsay Lohan who once famously tried to pick him up on a studio lot when she was still only 17. Legend has it that he passed at the time, though hard to say if he would do so now. Bet your boob job she’ll be up on that soon as she gets out of rehab. Full Story

Little Pip is a Dick

At least according to the Swedes. Ego tripping wanker with an over-inflated sense of entitlement and a hypocrite too – that is Justin Timberlake. According to locals, when he and his Shelf Ass were in Goteborg, he was rude to fans calling out for him at his hotel, shouting out “Are you calling me a f&ck face? Go F*ck Yourself” to people below. Full Story

Bitter Gaycist needs a job

Isaiah Washington, that’s who. He was fired from Grey’s Anatomy, tried to walk away classy, gave a few good comments to Entertainment Weekly, and then refused to let the story die. I’m thinkin’ he needs a new job. Because he’s screaming at the top of his lungs, pointing fingers, accusing people of collusion when if you recall, and as he admits, it’s because HE was the one who uttered The Word, the F word, during an argument. Full Story

And a lot less cocaine. Here is Kate Moss the other day in mid-canter, showing off some serious weight loss and the corresponding skin sag that can go with it. Hate to sound like a petty bitch but looking at this on a Monday morning makes me very happy about the crème brulee I wolfed down last night along with a glass of champagne at 1am and too many flavoured nuts to count. Full Story

The Kids

Interviewed all three and the director of OotP and Imelda Staunton on Saturday for eTalk. Imelda is actually TINY. But of course you wouldn’t know it from her ridiculously fantastic turn as Professor Umbridge. As for the kids…obviously no longer kids. Full Story

Comeback vs Comeback

First… No Doubt. Rest of the band joined Gwen Stefani on stage 2 nights in a row for a surprise reunion signalling their intention to record a brand new album and tour together once again. Love, love, love. It’s a comeback met with overwhelming positive response and even a little bit of grudging admiration. Full Story

Hollywood Ebola and The Geriatric

Probably a result of public disappointment, for fear of backlash and ridicule, NBC killed its plan to pay Hollywood Ebola a million dollars for her first post-prison interview. Barbara Walters, that senile old bag, in a moment of lucidity, also rejected the opportunity, likely bombarded over the last two weeks by emails from disbelieving viewers about her transparent defence of Paris on The View. Full Story
