Dear Gossips,

This fall I read Sheila Weller’s new book The News Sorority about Christiane Amanpour, Diane Sawyer, and Katie Couric. SO good. Empowering and dishy at the same time – like good gossip? A debate for another day.  Read Full Intro

Lady Gaga has been touring all over the world, dressed in a variety of crazy ass outfits for attention because, well, the Gaga hype isn’t what it was, is it? After a while, none of it is all that remarkable anymore. The more outlandish the costume, the less I care. So here she is, home in New York today and NOT wearing something stupid. Full Story

In addition to Benedict Cumberbatch, Reese Witherspoon was also one of the surprise names left off the list of Independent Spirit Award nominees. Reese is considered to be in the second position, after Julianne Moore, for Best Actress Oscar nominee for her performance in Wild. And if we’re working on the McConaissance plan (his agent, Jim Toth, is her husband), ideally she’d be at the Spirits the night before Oscar Sunday. Full Story

That Aaron Sorkin/Steve Jobs biopic has had a busy few weeks. First Christian Bale was in —  confirmed by Sorkin himself! But then Christian Bale was out. Then Michael Fassbender was in talks to play Jobs—he’s still attached to the project but nothing is official yet. Full Story

Angelina Jolie is in Paris today. She was photographed at Vivement Dimanche in black, smiling at the crowd. Obviously she’s out there promoting Unbroken. And talking about her marriage too. You know that’s what all the entertainment reporters want to discuss. Like, if I was assigned to the Unbroken junket, I’d probably have to get off a question about the wedding too. Full Story

Not officially. But it could totally be an option. A new family portrait of the Cambridges is now online that hasn’t been widely circulated until now. The picture was taken in March and was distributed as a thank you card on their Australia and New Zealand tour. Big G was 10 months old at the time. Full Story

Someone emailed me yesterday wondering about old beef between Gwyneth Paltrow and Jennifer Lopez. The question came up because G posted a shot of JLO on Instagram from her performance – without a song – at the American Music Awards. JLO trains with Tracy Anderson now. So, if you think she’s looking better than she’s ever looked, it’s probably because she’s using the Tracy Anderson Method. Full Story

Everyone was expecting The Imitation Game and Benedict Cumberbatch to be called when the Independent Spirit Award nominations were revealed yesterday. Cumberbatch is considered a top 2 contender for Best Actor Oscar and then there’s the Harvey Weinstein factor. Remember what he did with Silver Linings Playbook? But Cumberbatch, The Imitation Game, and, really, Harvey overall were totally shut out of the Spirits. Full Story

Jurassic World: The park is open for business

Sarah Posted by Sarah at November 26, 2014 14:15:55 November 26, 2014 14:15:55

It’s been 22 years since Jurassic Park failed its safety inspection, and Jurassic World, the culmination of John Hammond’s dream for a living-dinosaur theme park, is now open for business. What could possibly go wrong? I mean, besides the dinosaurs getting loose—again—and eating people touring the park—again—and then escaping the island—again—and eating people on the mainland—again. Full Story
