Being Kind to Fergie

Lainey Posted by Lainey at March 7, 2007 12:00:00 March 7, 2007 12:00:00

Sigh. A little piece of me has just died knowing that I’m about to write what I’m about to write. But … I think she looks good. Helps of course that the camera is so far away, far enough away so that the really frightening bits on her face aren’t magnified and still, in the spirit of objectivity, I gotta say the girl is fit. Full Story

The Daily Rumour: Reese & Jake?

Lainey Posted by Lainey at March 7, 2007 12:00:00 March 7, 2007 12:00:00

So this OK Magazine report that they were hooking up in NYC last week, clandestine visits in hotel rooms and now everyone is losing their sh-t over a potential new golden couple in Hollywood. Trust me, I wish for it too. Because aside from that brief bout of award sulk last year, Jake is actually hilarious. Full Story

Saving Britney: JT & Timbaland to the Rescue??!!??

Lainey Posted by Lainey at March 7, 2007 12:00:00 March 7, 2007 12:00:00

Apparently Timbaland wants to do it – record with Britney, “save” her career, take her away and make great music and make it all better. And he says that Pip is open to it too – so long as she’s serious and works hard. Hope, gossips. See? It’s called hope. If major players are still willing to go there, to lift her up, maybe exploit her a little (who are we kidding –they’d make a killing!) our girl ain’t dead yet. Full Story

Lindsay Lohan: Becoming Dina

Lainey Posted by Lainey at March 7, 2007 12:00:00 March 7, 2007 12:00:00

Lighter locks and the growing resemblance is frightening - mother daughter morph made even more alarming by Dina’s apparent quest to live vicariously through her kid. Lilo does have lovely extensions though, don’t you think? And NOT the work of Ken Paves. Maybe Jessica Simpson should defect? Oh and by the way – all this partying, almost every night, immediately after exiting treatment… she quite the Wonder Girl, don’t you think? When other patients are directed to change their habits and remove the influences, Lindsay can stay clean even in the drug-infested Hollywood clubworld by virtue of sheer will power alone. Full Story

Bearing the Little Sister Burden

Lainey Posted by Lainey at March 7, 2007 12:00:00 March 7, 2007 12:00:00

Her name is Hania, she’s Mischa Barton’s younger sister, also an actor, rumoured to have been admitted to rehab for addiction to prescriptions drugs and I can only presume that the Ashlee Simpson Syndrome is going on here, only instead of manifesting itself in the form of a remodeled nose, she’s chosen to handle it by eliminating food – or so it appears anyway. Full Story

The Cover Pitts

Lainey Posted by Lainey at March 7, 2007 12:00:00 March 7, 2007 12:00:00

Us Weekly and People have both put the Family on the cover, pimping the Pitts who are always good to sell at newsstands… and why not? Look at them! Nothing new in terms of content: it’s a boy, around 4 years old, they began the procedure months ago, could be a while yet before they bring him home – all things you already know. Full Story

Nick Cannon: the Backpack Dealbreaker

Lainey Posted by Lainey at March 7, 2007 12:00:00 March 7, 2007 12:00:00

Call me old fashioned but I’m not really down with a guy who likes the frills. At least not this way. And as cute as Nick Cannon is – he’s even cuter in person – I still object to the LV backpack. On anyone I would object…but especially a boy. If a boy wanted to take me out and showed up with an LV backpack, even if he looked like Leo and acted like Kyle Chandler, I’d still shut my loins and say no thank you. Full Story

Ashlee Simpson: the ultimate rejection

Lainey Posted by Lainey at March 7, 2007 12:00:00 March 7, 2007 12:00:00

Rejected by Ryan Phillipe? Oh shame. Saturday night at Les Deux, the story is that Ashlee apparently tried to work it on Ryan but was met with disinterest, which I find hard to believe. Not that she made a play for him but that he turned it down. This is Ryan Phillipe, remember? The same Ryan Phillipe carb face cheeseball who drops cheeseball lines on dimwitted 20 year olds impressed by big words and his cheeseball attempts at Shakespearean sonnets, who only hits on girls who see him hand and hand with his wife and children on the cover of a magazine and still allow themselves to be lied and devalued with a textbook line. Full Story

Tuesday, March 6, 2007 Dear Gossips, Thanks to all of you who emailed about the highliter/lipbalm dangling from Sharon Stone… or more specifically – not a highliter but a tube of lipbalm though equally as assy and really, when you think about, does it make the bitch any less loopy? Tuesday, live blogging all day, check back often for fresh posts. Yours in gossip, Lainey PS. Congratulations to Katerina F in Sweden who has claimed the Bambi Bangle and to Liz B in Toronto for winning the LaineyGossip Oscar Contest! More giveaways to come, many thanks as always for the support! PPS. Do you the headlines make you laugh? The daily dispatches about Britney in rehab? Because her family is worried that she’s “wavering in her treatment?” Because anyone going in to rehab is the essence of stability, right? Please. How is that insightful? And why in the world would that be out of the ordinary???

The Daily Warm & Fuzzy: the Princes and the Prank

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

Not usually one for royal gossip and probably total bullsh-t but I’ll play naïve and pretend it’s possible…because it’s just too damn cute. Word is the Queen asked William and Harry to help figure out her voicemail, apparenty the old girl is technology challenged. So they ended up recording this greeting, much to the chagrin of her personal secretary: “Hey Wassup! This is Liz. Full Story

The Daily Quiveration Encore: Gerard Again

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

Posting earlier today on Gerard Butler elicited quite the response. Now MANY of you are campaigning for his place on the Freebie Five. My friend Lola has been imploring me to see 300. Perhaps afterwards I might be swayed. Until then, feast your eyes on a special gift from Ange who had the pleasure of getting up close and personal with Gerard in Toronto for the film festival in 2005. Full Story
