Heidi! Happy Belated Birthday! Hope you had a happy Christmas in spite of the fact that the crazy Toronto ice storm clusterf-cked the city. Helena wanted to send this earlier but she didn’t have any power. She and her dogs were thinking of you though – and Ramon too! And for Sam from Beth – Happy 22nd Birthday! Here are David Hasselhoff and Paul Newman to celebrate you. Full Story

Christmas On The Coast
2nd place: Oh Come All Ye Faithful
On Sunday night, Christmas On The Coast did not win the Oscar. It came in third. Instead, the Academy chose Santa Cleared For Takeoff with Christmas Cottage a close second. Let’s play again next year?
We have a few gossip items to tie up today but it’ll be a light blog. There will be no posting tomorrow but I’ll be back on Thursday through the rest of the week and the only day I’m not writing next week is New Year’s Day. Come by if you’re stuffed.
Stay warm, stay safe, and be loved.
Happy Christmas! Happy Holidays!
Yours in gossip,

Christmas is the holiday of Mariah Carey. Do you know how much money Mimi makes from Christmas? Count all the times you’ve heard the song. Now multiply it across the world. Christmas is Mimi’s personal holiday. Don’t call her an idiot when you consider she went out and basically wrote a Christmas classic that will ensure that dembabies never have to walk a day in their lives. Full Story

Two years in a row… The Avengers was the biggest movie of 2012. Iron Man 3 is the biggest movie of 2013. That’s $1.2 billion in global box office.

Worst because of all those “intervention” reports. Sure, sure, let them blame the girl, Hemsworth. Let her take the hit while you had January Jones straddling you at an Oscar party. But best because… Well… Can you imagine breaking up with someone and then her face is, literally, EVERYWHERE? Liam Hemsworth could not escape Miley Cyrus in 2013. Full Story
She came back to us this year, Julia Roberts. We wrote more about Julia in 2013 than we ever have here at LaineyGossip.com. And in a totally “Who’s NATALIE???” way. When a Gossip Year includes Julia Roberts, there’s nothing to complain about. The best part is – there will be more. Full Story

Angelina Jolie and all the children boarded a private plane out of Sydney on Friday to begin their holiday break. France? New Orleans? Los Angeles? Queensland. The Family Brange in its entirety was photographed boating on the Coomera River yesterday, perhaps a belated 50th birthday celebration for Brad and a fun Christmas outing for the kids. Full Story
This is for Keely and others who are going through a tough week – they say it’s the most wonderful time of the year, but for many, it’s also the loneliest. That only intensifies surrounded by happy assholes. By request, here are some shots I never ended up posting of Taylor Kitsch leaving LA last week, presumably headed home for Christmas. Full Story
The first trailer for Johnny Depp’s Transcendence was released this weekend. Johnny Depp doesn’t wear fake teeth. Or a wig. Or cartoon makeup. And he doesn’t speak in an accent. Jesus, how long has it been? It’s so nice to hear his “regular” voice – a deep drawl, more suited to a rock star than a scientist, but let’s not complain. Full Story
