Patrick Dempsey: Healthy Ego or Egomaniacal?

Lainey Posted by Lainey at January 12, 2007 12:00:00 January 12, 2007 12:00:00

On the cover of Details this month – a rather candid interview in which he discusses his re-ascent and his future. As you know, I’m not a huge fan. Not that I particularly dislike him (those sentiments are reserved for the stone-faced wife), I just don’t particularly care. There’s no swooning, there’s no sh-t-losing, and there’s definitely no panty ripping …unlike my eTalk producer Jennifer who has plastered his face all over her desk. Full Story

Michelle Williams: Double Standard

Lainey Posted by Lainey at January 12, 2007 12:00:00 January 12, 2007 12:00:00

Oh look! A pappy photo of Michelle Williams on the set of her new movie The Tourist with Hugh Jackman and Ewan McGregor. After threatening a fan site with legal action and forcing it to close down, objecting to its inclusion ONLY of purchased promotional and red carpet images, this picture has shown up on People Online so the question is: Will she sue People too? Somehow I doubt it. Full Story

Junior Goes for All-Time Rossum

Lainey Posted by Lainey at January 12, 2007 12:00:00 January 12, 2007 12:00:00

People is apparently devoting weekly updates on Tori Spelling’s pregnancy. Between the utterly tasteless yardsale and the “Reproposal” and now her gushing ad nauseum about her body and her how it’s changing for her child, the magazine is clearly reporting from inside her ass, probably eager to land the exclusive opportunity to actually be INSIDE the delivery room when it happens. Full Story

New Angels on the Town

Lainey Posted by Lainey at January 12, 2007 12:00:00 January 12, 2007 12:00:00

Grainy photos but they do the job: Cam and Drew and a smug-l0oking Lilo on Wednesday night, proudly gloating about her two new BFFs even though the Barrymore effect appears to be a slow and steady approach - as evidenced by Lindsay’s still dirty, still rough as ass face the next morning. Here she is at some Golden Globes freebie suite, greasy, baggy-eyed and wonky with the forehead of a 40 year old and no signs of slowing down. Full Story

Claire Danes: Homewrecker Moves On

Lainey Posted by Lainey at January 12, 2007 12:00:00 January 12, 2007 12:00:00

Tired of clinging to a man who didn’t want to marry her, Claire Danes has found herself another boyfriend – British actor Hugh Dancy who bears a curious resemblance to Billy Crudup…maybe not a bad move given their inauspicious beginning, she might not want to be looking over her shoulder every five minutes, you know? Still…the payback effects of homewrecking run deep. Full Story

Dina Lohan: finger follies

Lainey Posted by Lainey at January 12, 2007 12:00:00 January 12, 2007 12:00:00

Crude? Yes. But I’m not the one getting pleasured under the table in front of a roomful of dinner patrons – so says Page Six. According to their sources, Dina was a the Kobe Club the other night, skirt hiked up and givin’er with some dude who had his hand shoved underneath her napkin … because every mother with a problematic, alcoholic Hollywood child star should be getting fingerf*cked while her daughter cokes up her eyeballs all the way across the country. Full Story

Posh & Becks: Chav to America

Lainey Posted by Lainey at January 12, 2007 12:00:00 January 12, 2007 12:00:00

Inevitable…but also a little sad. As I’ve said over the last few days, the Beckhams are the essence of Excess, and while their blatant, unapologetic tackiness will most certainly blend in beautifully in Los Angeles, it is also undeniable that the soul of the celebrated Beckham Chav is 100% British - removing it from its foundation could have unforeseeable consequences. Full Story

Wednesday, January 10, 2007
Dear Gossips, They are “The People”. And who cares for prestige when The People have spoken? People’s Choice Awards last night – the MiniVan Majority’s annual opportunity to throw Jennifer Aniston a bone – never an indication of truly discriminating preference, as evidenced by The People’s selection of Best Picture: Click. Yes…THAT Click. Starring Adam Sandler. Now I’m all over Adam Sandler, I love stupid humour as much as the next, but have you seen Click??? I haven’t…though not for lack of trying. Believe me, I tried. I rented that sh-t. I took it with us to a weekend retreat on the island. Nothing but movies and Oreo cookies and I couldn’t stomach more than 25 minutes. But The People have spoken. Still…was nice to see McDreamy honoured. Was nice to see him grateful for a second chance, and to say as much. Was also interesting to see that many of the major players were most definitely saving their best frocks for next week. Fashion was rather underwhelming, non? Style wrap up below and please…never mind my raging bitch. In Toronto til the weekend, going on 5 days living under my mother’s roof and I’ve already had to endure two personal concerts in our kitchen listening to her practice Chinese Opera which, in and of itself is bad enough, but when attempted by an amateur Squawking Chicken, whose voice on the best of days could be used as biological warfare…I’m telling you, without exaggeration, people have killed themselves for a lot less. Wednesday, blogging throughout the day, check back often for new posts, check archives for late posts missed from yesterday, and note a slight adjustment to the site: the home page now includes more than one day’s worth of articles, keep scrolling and hit the next arrow at the bottom to search for articles along conventional blog format. Yours in gossip, Lainey

Fresh Freebie Five...Finally

Lainey Posted by Lainey at January 10, 2007 12:00:00 January 10, 2007 12:00:00

Leo at #1 for weeks and, as you know, I couldn"t figure out how to officially change it until now and even then I had to cheat. Nevertheless, as you can see, the Freebie Five has been shuffled. Yes...George Clooney is gone. No...George Clooney is not Digits. Nor is he gay. At least not when he goes to Mexico and spends the nighttime with the ladies. Full Story

Joshua vs Ashton: Good Growth, Bad Gary

Lainey Posted by Lainey at January 10, 2007 12:00:00 January 10, 2007 12:00:00

At a party thrown by Martin Sheen the other day for the cast of Bobby - now you know why I call him Gary because next to a fellow who can actually grow a proper beard, Ashton"s patchwork looks even more pronounced. Still. Full Story

Sienna presents

Lainey Posted by Lainey at January 10, 2007 12:00:00 January 10, 2007 12:00:00

Just announced as expected, Sienna Miller has been added to the slate of presenters at the Golden Globes on Monday, dutifully making her rounds in LA (seemingly always chaperoned) in support of Factory Girl which, so far, has received a rather lukewarm - at best - reception from critics. Sienna"s performance however has elicited a positive response, though it appears at this point that Harvey"s big push for an Oscar nomination is not going to come to fruition - if the SAG nods are any indication, Penelope Cruz and Meryl Streep will be spoiling the all-UK party. Full Story
