Jen & Courteney: Payback is a Lesbian

Lainey Posted by Lainey at January 23, 2007 12:00:00 January 23, 2007 12:00:00

Literally. Eager to help out her BFF, in appreciation for the hours and hours and hours of weeping poor Courteney had to endure as her fragile friend tried to pull herself together after the divorce, Jennifer Aniston has not only agreed to guest star in Dirt, she apparently is also willing to to swing Sapphic in the process – clearly a shameless ratings gimmick but actually rather intriguing. Full Story

Mandy Moore: Non-Pregnancy Glow at Sundance

Lainey Posted by Lainey at January 23, 2007 12:00:00 January 23, 2007 12:00:00

Ran in to Mandy Moore at the Delta Lodge while waiting for Keri Russell – man does she have great skin, and I mean really, really great skin. Didn’t see DJ AM, thank Goddess, she wearing a cream coat with toggles but aside from the complexion, the most remarkable fact is that Mandy is TALL. And she wasn’t wearing heels. Full Story

Keri Russell: Pregnancy Glow at Sundance

Lainey Posted by Lainey at January 23, 2007 12:00:00 January 23, 2007 12:00:00

Again, was never a huge fan of Felicity, therefore rather indifferent, but having met her yesterday, I now understand why her supporters are so loyal. Keri is a doll. First the girly details – the big plus is that she doesn’t, like so many of her peers, lie about her height. She is listed at 5 ft 4 and she is indeed 5 ft 4. Full Story

Oscar: the nominations announced

Lainey Posted by Lainey at January 23, 2007 12:00:00 January 23, 2007 12:00:00

Babel, Little Miss Sunshine, The Departed, The Queen and Clint but no Dreamgirls…do you love it, or do you LOVE it? I love. I love a LOT. And I LOVE Ryan Gosling’s recognition too. Slim chance against Forest Whitaker but still, it’s nice to know that sometimes, a performance with virtually NO campaign behind it can still earn a nod – can hardly believe it’s possible in the current Hollywood climate, non? The lock of the year? Has to be Jennifer Hudson – which means you DO NOT want to be on staff with Beyonce this morning. Full Story

Monday, January 22, 2007 Dear Gossips, Sundance – the Swag is obnoxious and the Poseurs are obnoxious but Sundance is also the great equaliser. In a town where, theoretically, it’s too cold for famef&ckers to toss their tits and bits about for attention, bundling up means concealing the flesh, and when your eyes aren’t drawn to sensory skank overload, it actually means the Boys have a chance. And Sundance is FULL of pretty boys. Beautiful boys. Famous and not famous milling about Main Street and not all of them gay… Heaven. Still…back to the famef&ckers – seriously, I love them. Women of all ages and sizes trying like ass to get in, sneak in, bribe their way in anywhere THEY happened to hanging, no matter what the cost or consequence. Saturday night we were at the MySpace/Tao party – Pharrell and Mos Def scheduled to perform, Diddy showed, Sienna showed, almost everyone showed – and these tramps were crashing the door, literally crashing the door, begging security with the most pathetic but creatively inspiring promises, willing to offer their first born for the privilege of partying with the blessed… It’s the kind of shameless blowing you can’t help but admire. Full Sundance report below and more… Monday – live updates in between travel. Check back often for fresh posts, scroll below for late articles from Friday. Yours in gossip, Lainey PS. Much appreciation to Mackage for the warmest, most beautiful coat ever – so gorgeous even the girls at the Fred Segal lounge were impressed. Tune in to eTalk tomorrow to check it out. And also to Shelley and Gina from the MAC Cosmetics Pro Team, providing makeup services for celebrities at Sundance, for getting my face on for a full weekend of partying. Thank you, love you, owe you! PPS. Canada – be proud. We are represented in fine fashion this year at Sundance with Sarah Polley leading the way. The film is called Away From Her and is already generating lofty expectations for a possible Award Season run in 07/08.

Victoria Beckham: behind the concrete tits

Lainey Posted by Lainey at January 22, 2007 12:00:00 January 22, 2007 12:00:00

CAUTION: NOT SAFE FOR WORK You love them and you hate them – the manifestation of the patented Beckham Chav sitting like a shelf on the Posh chest, obnoxious yet irresistible, the very formula for our fascination about her everything: her body, her clothes, her c*cksucking pout, her ridiculous play for attention every time she goes out. Full Story

Sienna at Sundance

Lainey Posted by Lainey at January 22, 2007 12:00:00 January 22, 2007 12:00:00

In town to promote the upcoming Interview, constantly attended by Harvey Weinstein who, of course, is here for purchasing purposes (already scooped up John Cusack’s Grace is Good) in addition to making sure his Golden Girl is on her best behaviour, and for the most part, she’s been keeping her ass clean…if not her nose, not that I would know anything about that. Full Story

Bitches at Sundance

Lainey Posted by Lainey at January 22, 2007 12:00:00 January 22, 2007 12:00:00

Hands down, without a doubt, the two biggest bitches at Sundance – Teri Hatcher and Kristen Bell aka Veronica Mars. First Teri – saw her hangin’ off her man (ex boyfriend of Eva Longoria) arriving at the Village at the Lift where the Fred Segal suite was open for business. Pappies were flashing, she seemed smug and sated about finally finding herself a fool willing to date her, and at the same time desperately aware of the absurdity of the situation – he is, after all, a decent looking man with prospects. Full Story

Quiveration at Sundance

Lainey Posted by Lainey at January 22, 2007 12:00:00 January 22, 2007 12:00:00

Scott Speedman, Ryan Reynolds, John Cusack, and surprisingly James Franco. Let’s start with Canada: was never a fan of Felicity, in fact I never watched. Also not particularly fond of Underworld and when I saw him at TIFF he was more hirsute than he was hot which is why at the Slamdance premiere of his new movie Weirdsville on Friday, costarring Wes Bentley, the return of the cleanshaven Scott Speedman was a welcome change. Full Story

Classic Quiveration at Sundance: Kevin Bacon

Lainey Posted by Lainey at January 22, 2007 12:00:00 January 22, 2007 12:00:00

Source In town to launch his new project Six Degrees, a social networking site encouraging philanthropy. Not your generic Hollywood hunky leading man…Kevin never was. But there has always been something about Kevin, non? I’m telling you, after all these years, the man is campy walking sex – coming out of a shoppe on Sunday afternoon, a huge crowd gathered outside, wearing a black leather jacket and fitted, fitted tapered jeans, Kevin saunters down the stairs, totally nonplussed by the attention and takes his time so everyone can get what they want without much mayhem. Full Story

Single at Sundance: Adam Brody

Lainey Posted by Lainey at January 22, 2007 12:00:00 January 22, 2007 12:00:00

I know there’s a huge teenybop following – I can respect that. I can see the quirky, geeky god appeal, the skinny lanky kid with a smart mouth and great personality and very good bone structure. Intellectually I understand. Loiningly though? Seriously…he looks like he’s 10 years old. Shopping on Main Street, a huge crowd gathered around the store, when he came out I swear, several girls just about lost their sh-t, and a few grandmas too… WTF??? Anyway, Adam is indeed long and youthful, a great face, a wonderful nose, but sooooo skinny. Full Story
