Tom Cruise: Hollywood Voldemort Vindicated

Lainey Posted by Lainey at March 2, 2007 12:00:00 March 2, 2007 12:00:00

If you don’t read Harry Potter (why the hell not???) you probably won’t get the reference but as far as things go in Hollywood, you can’t deny the tenacity and sheer…… UN-killableness of Tom Cruise. Just a few short months ago in the summer, after being dumped by Paramount and embarrassingly admonished in the Wall Street Journal by Viacom Chairman Sumner Redstone, the GMD was flat out on the mat at 7 ½ - what (spoiler!) Meredith was before being ridiculously resuscitated by her mother and the pressure of Christina’s hands on her feet. Full Story

Oscar Appreciation

Skip to the next if you don’t care for my thank you’s but there’s a giveaway involved at the bottom that you might not want to miss. Like an idiot I forgot to take my camera to the carpet on Sunday so screen caps will have to do. Luckily the Cargo girls who did our makeup took a few shots from Friday when we taped the show from the red carpet. Full Story

Biel Fashion Week continues…

Lainey Posted by Lainey at March 2, 2007 12:00:00 March 2, 2007 12:00:00

An early exit at Stella McCartney but just a day later, Jessica Biel is front row at Chanel and YSL… WTF??? Note also that none of the usual big time players were attendance which probably explains why she was gifted with such an honour but still... her presence still confounds me. Apparently she fashions herself a style “It’ Girl now. Full Story

The Travoltas Sell Wild Hogs

Lainey Posted by Lainey at March 2, 2007 12:00:00 March 2, 2007 12:00:00

Pimping kids for publicity and profit – the new sales strategy in Hollywood and it looks like the Travoltas are the latest to hop on the bandwagon. Here they are from a couple of nights ago at the premiere of Wild Hogs – I cannot for the life of me understand why the brilliant William H Macy accepted this script…I mean is he poor??? Sorry I digress. Full Story

Britney: the fedora is back!

Lainey Posted by Lainey at March 2, 2007 12:00:00 March 2, 2007 12:00:00

Source On another supervised outing from Promises yesterday. One week and counting and more good news – the fedora is back. Have always loved Britney with the fedora - during the old days I mean and NOT during the Carol Channing, Britney-on-the-run with a bald head days. Full Story

Kate Moss: Hanging on to Pete

Lainey Posted by Lainey at March 2, 2007 12:00:00 March 2, 2007 12:00:00

At the NME Awards yesterday, she was scheduled to present but left early instead after Pete was spotted tucking a spoon into his sleeve, prompting security to question him about drug use. Huge fight ensued, she laid into him for embarrassing her, some people say she was sauced as well, everyone thought it’d be best for them to leave…so off they went into the night and someone else had to step in to take her place…or so “they” say. Full Story

At work with Daddy

Of course The Chosen One had to be the rare exception to my Celebrity Baby Theory. Of course, she did. But seriously…who can resist? Check out chubby little Shiloh hanging out with Daddy Brad on the set in New Orleans today, pretty much an exact replica of both her parents’ faces without looking like a weird Conan O’Brien mash-up. Full Story

Thursday, March 1, 2007 Dear Gossips, As you now know, VBTV is officially official – concrete tits on display in an attempt to court the American public, on network tv no less. And while she thinks she’ll be able to talk her famous friends into making appearances to boost interest off the top, many insiders belief someone like Jennifer Lopez will bail on her at the last minute. And Katie’s participation isn’t exactly lock solid either. But if what we’ve seen from YouTube so far is any indication, Posh will be a stateside Star…and the haters are already predicting that her new brand will offer David a backdoor exit out of his marriage. As for Paris Hilton facing jail time for driving with a suspended license – though nothing would make me happier than to see that sh-t locked up, somehow that virus is going to mutate her way out of prison too. Don’t doubt the evil power of Hollywood Ebola or the baffling existence of those who worship her – I saw them at clubs, at the lounges, every night at Teddy’s, little clones of each other snorting coke in the bathroom after maxing out their credit cards at Lisa Kline. I’m telling you, eradicating Paris would be like wiping out LA – ain’t gonna happen. So the way I see it, the only way to fight that bitch is to hit it where it hurts the most. Paris can handle being hated. What Paris won’t be able to handle is being replaced. Watch. Thursday – blogging all day, check back often for new posts. Yours in gossip, Lainey PS. Friday Night Lights continues to impress. Unlike Grey’s Anatomy which just sucks ass, period. Did I mention we walked by the Grey’s set last week in LA? Stood outside the Seattle Grace doors, where Bailey receives ambulance patients. Then the Chief and Isaiah Washington show up without fanfare, both in scrubs, Isaiah said hello to everyone, recognized me surprisingly from when I interviewed him back in November, seemed like he was in an excellent mood. And so he should be. After all, he still has a job. And given that they’re shooting the final episodes of the season, it’s a good bet he’ll still be around come May…and beyond. So weak. So lame. So not Friday Night Lights. So why aren’t you watching??? PPS. Maureen M from Toronto is the winner of the Balmshell Oscar Contest! Congratulations!

Jen and Violet in the Suburbs

Lainey Posted by Lainey at March 1, 2007 12:00:00 March 1, 2007 12:00:00

She’s in White Rock, about 45 minutes outside of Vancouver, a quaint affluent little neighbourhood with a beautiful beach and a super cute boardwalk. I’m told she passed over staying in a swank downtown hotel in favour of one less exposed, that she enjoys playing at the local park with the incomparably adorable Violet every day, that a certain PUB has been catering her meals, and even though her requests are specific, they are not excessive or extraordinary. Full Story

About Jessica Biel

I’m sorry… I don’t mean to mean. I’m sure she’s lovely. I really do think she has a lovely bum. But…um…like… what’s with the recent overkill? A movie that died at the box office, in which she was hardly remarkable, and weekly photos of her showing off her muscles at the beach, and all of a sudden JT is tapping that ass and Oscar wants a presenter? I’m telling you – it’s the Paris Hilton factor. Full Story

Michelle & Heath: the next split?

Lainey Posted by Lainey at March 1, 2007 12:00:00 March 1, 2007 12:00:00

The NY Daily News says things are rough going between the two – something about Heath being at Teddy’s without her on Valentine’s Day, just chillin’, not mackin’ on anyone but still she freaked out. Having said that, the NY Daily News also said in today’s column that Orly and Penelope were givin’ er at a party on Sunday night after the Oscars which immediately smelled to me like a plant, considering I saw him that night with my very own eyes, accompanied by a giggling gaggle of young girls…one of whom looked curiously like her sister. Full Story
