My apologies to Katja W who is very, very disappointed in me for removing Zizou from the Freebie 5. Fret not darling. I am a true gossip, a fickle bitch. Leo will last but a few weeks at which point Zidane will return. Promise. Remember - new posts coming, check the site throughout the day on Wednesday to keep up to date. Til then, I am yours in gossip, Lainey

Like I said - a super long shot and in poker terms, Matt Damon is holding Pocket 2s against Patrick"s Pocket Rockets and George"s Cowboys. But there is no glory in playing it safe. I think this is his year: Arguments for: 1. He"s a new husband and a new father - check check for the MiniVan Majority 2. Full Story

The biggest A of the A List among his crowd with the most impressive resume of any of his peers 3. Low scandal factor, high mystery quotient Arguments against: 1. Full Story

He"ll always be a contender…like a fine wine, right? Arguments for: 1. Reigning Oscar winner, the most charming man in Hollywood, everyone loves him, everyone wants to know him, and he calls his own shots. That, my fellow gossips, is called power. 2. Umm…he"s George. Aesthetic rationale not required. Full Story

If it was up to me, he"d have my vote…hands down, loins aquiver. Arguments for: 1. It"s Johnny Depp - do I really have to do this? 2. If I really have to do this, on top of the fact that he"s the baddest sexiest moefoe, like, ever… his movie owned the box office this summer. And money talks. Period. Full Story

Dear gossips, The Departed. Well… they didn"t soil it, which is a relief. Pretty good in fact. Bastardised by Hollywood with a neat Hollywood bastardised ending, but pretty good all the same. More on that later, along with the rationale behind Leo. REAL TIME BLOGGING continues on TUESDAY along with today"s post-Thanksgiving catch up issue. Check back often for new entries throughout the day, the most recent will appear at the top of the site, following the opening paragraph.

Some spices have babies and turn into stone: skeletal bones, hardened breasts, engorged lips all teetering on two pin thin legs and even thinner heels. Other spices have babies and turn in to Eddie Murphy-dating trannies. And then there are the spices who have babies and are much better for it. Full Story

The Alba Bitch is on the new cover of Elle. In the article, she talks about her style, her attitude, her religious outlook, and her ambition - to be taken *seriously* as a *serious* artist as opposed to a starlet with a *seriously* slamming body.   Hmmmm... Not likely but ok, whatever, I can roll with that. Full Story

Penelope Cruz is delightful...I am completely charmed by these photos taken recently at a Paper Magazine event to honour her new Almodovar project Volver, for which she is said to be in the running for a nomination. After her cruise with the GMD, I was hoping for good things. Matthew McConaughey looked good for a while until that turned gross and sweaty, and single Pene looked even better - focused, fit, free. Full Story
