Dear Gossips,

Sorry about the late start. Was bitten by something last night, probably a spider, and had a bad reaction. The good news: Antihistamines really work. Brange also works. I like waking up to new photos of them looking badass.  Read Full Intro

The FIFA World Cup opening ceremony is happening right now. Teams have been arriving through the week. I wrote earlier in the Brange article about the Athlete Group Suit Shot, remember? How hot it is when they travel in business attire en masse and how I’d take this any time over athletes in underwear? Well now we have an examples. Full Story

Best gossip you’re going to read all week, I promise. Molly Bloom has written a book. She’s the woman who hosted high stakes poker games in Hollywood, known as the Poker Princess. Bloom not only organised the games, she also allegedly arranged for “massage therapists” to come in when players were tense. Full Story

Kerry Washington made her first public appearance since having a baby yesterday at the Crystal + Lucy Awards in LA yesterday with Shonda Rhimes, the mother of Olivia Pope. I wrote about Shonda earlier this week. About her wonderful commencement speech at Dartmouth. About her approach to the Work and her attitude about the Dream. Full Story

Pregnancy is not private: Mila Kunis edition

Mila Kunis covers the new issue of MARIE CLAIRE. She’s pregnant with Ashton Kutcher’s baby. And Ashton Kutcher is some kind of hero because he isn’t “judging” her for her body changes. Click here for a refresher. How f-cking gross is it to know that people talk like this? That there’s someone out there who said those words and felt like it would be a compliment instead of punching themselves in the face? If someone said that to me I would punch them in the face. Full Story

It’s the name of a Coldplay song off the album Viva La Vida Or Death And All His Friends. The first time I heard it I thought of Steve Winwood. But perspective is a gift. Because I’d rather listen to Lovers In Japan than the embarrassingly sh-tty Magic or A Sky Full Of Stars. Anyway, Chris Martin arrived in Tokyo yesterday. Full Story
