Sixty minutes of contrived emotion - not just when Jennifer Aniston comes to visit but Oprah"s show in general. It"s textbook, non? Here"s when you"re supposed to get choked up with emotion, here"s when you"re supposed to pump your fist in the air and feel *empowered* because you are a strong woman, roar roar roar, and when you love yourself enough, you can make great. Full Story

Dear Gossips, REAL TIME BLOGGING continues this week - Monday to Friday. Please check the site throughout the day for new posts and get caught up if you fall behind by hitting the archives for old items from the day before. PS. This is for my father who, at the age of 58, just ran and completed his 2nd half marathon with a killer time of just under 2 hrs 15 - an outstanding accomplishment for anyone, let alone a man who has the uneviable task of sharing a house with the open-market-loud-mouth-squawker otherwise known as my mother. PPS. To all you McGoslings…y"all need to chill. I appreciate your fervour, I appreciate how intense it must be for you these days: no photos, tabloid break up rumours swirling non-stop, threatening your Notebook fantasies, giving you all kindsa grief. But as I told you last week, they"re still together, making out furiously, and going for coffee on lazy Sunday afternoons. New Toronto sighting below with exclusive photos on eTalk on Monday. CTV 7pm and if you don"t live in Canada, check it out on broadband. Feel better now?

Ok McGoslings...have you seen the photos yet? Do you believe? All is right again? As I"ve been telling you for weeks, these two are solid but the real question is: why do you still believe Life & Style? Thanks to Sara K who sent in yet another description from their weekend in Toronto, this time on Saturday. Full Story

Woah. They said she was workin" out like mad...and they did NOT exaggerate. First sighting since the arrival of KFed"s second cash deposit - name still unconfirmed, rumoured to be Sutton Pierce but according to Kevin, unless *he* tells you it"s legit, you best not believe it yet. Whatever. Truth be told, I"m not totally down with the Reese Witherspoon imitation but that said, it is a remarkable improvement, and we should always reward small steps. Full Story

Johnny & Kate: fleeting, fiery, fantastic, but looking back - so f-cking good. And too beautiful to last. Thank Goddess for Annie Leibovitz who captured them during they halcyon days, now reprinted in her new photography book for a nice bit of nostalgia. Ultra cheese moment coming up, I know, but don"t they make your heart break. Full Story

Jen & Vince: Damage Control Overdrive

Seriously ... Brad needs to give these two a lesson in Press Planning because what was a molehill has turned into a mountain and getting the lawyers involved isn"t exactly helping. This just in - Vince is suing the New York Post, The Sun, and The Daily Mirror for suggesting that he was passionately kissing another woman in London last week after printing "misleading" photos of him with a blonde at an industry party. Full Story

The Transformation of Ben Affleck

I"m not going to start fanning myself like they do on Oprah but this is pretty frickin" cute: Ben Affleck and Violet enjoying a father/daughter at the beach. Though he looks just a little bit awkward, I think it adds to the charm - the "awwwwww" factor few woman can resist. Imagine that. Only 3 years ago Ben was allegedly getting manual at Brandy"s in Vancouver which, of course, prompted an intense media firestorm which, of course, led to the cancelled JLo wedding wedding which, of course, subsequently signalled the end of Bennifer. Full Story

My love and thanks to Jo C who sighted them and sent in the following description - hopefully this will alleviate the McGosling hysteria over rumours of a split. For the last freakin" time y"all…they are STILL together. Unedited below: So I was casually enjoying the loafing ways of my sunday afternoon in Toronto. Full Story

Tom & Katie: pitch presence, pitch pants

Have you ever seen 2 people smile so bloody hard? In analysing the hetero campaigning efforts of the GMD, I"d actually place his constant pitch presence on the side least offensive. Sure the cameras are always there, sure it"s a convenient way to assert his virile fathering capabilities, sure it"s catering to the MiniVan Majority and yet there has never been any reliable gossip about his shortcomings as a parent. Full Story

I suppose it was inevitable. Rumer Willis wants to be an actor…or maybe she just wants to be a star, but with three A-list parents - can you blame her? Rumer is 18 and for an 18 year old, Lindsay Lohan must seem like the ultimate role model. Notorious beyond belief, boyfriends left, right, and often inside her, new clothes every day, parties every night… it"s an intoxicating lifestyle, especially tempting for someone with such a vaunted pedigree. Full Story
