Homeland Season 3 Episode 9 recap Well, it happened. We knew it was coming, of course. Carrie and Brody, reunited at last. Dana Brody, still a thing on this show. Saul Berenson, finally fighting for his gig. It’s all here. A different show would have had this be the season premiere. Full Story

What’s missing from Rihanna lately, have you noticed? In her videos, on her Instagram, on Twitter, on HER, around her… What is it? MEN. Instead, Rihanna is surrounded by her best friend, Melissa, a steady crew of girls, and she’s doing it for them, for herself. When she’s dancing on a pole, it’s not for an audience of dudes.

So basically she’s been f-cking with this the entire time. That crying cat is now the symbol for why I don’t worry about Miley right now. Miley is conscious. That’s not to say that she’s perfect – because she’s not, and she’s made some mistakes, many of them, and will continue to. Full Story

Taylor Swift is always good for it. It was just a year ago that Swift and Harry Styles were making Burberry hearts at duck ponds and in the English countryside. Last night they were both winning awards and ignoring each other, as that Kardashian he may or may not be f-cking sat one row behind him. Full Story

I went to bed not knowing what was going on with Lady Gaga and R Kelly last night. I woke up still not knowing. Was it carry-over from Saturday Night Live? A lost sketch repurposed for the AMAs? Am I jet-lagged from New York even though it’s the same time zone? Did I shop my brain away? Am I too deliriously in love with my new coat? It’s a great coat Full Story

I’m not sure she was singing live. Frankly, I don’t care. She was good enough – great enough – at everything else to make me not care. JLO’s performance last night at the AMAs was everything. It had everything. It had costume. It had flair. It had HAIR. The energy – she put it all on stage last night. Full Story

Is he? Did he just…? No. No he isn’t. He can’t be. He wouldn’t. Of course he would. Justin Timberlake thinks he can do anything. Justin Timberlake tried on a Bajan accent last night while accepting his award while reminding people that he can’t be “genre-d” because he was nominated for “pop, rock, and soul r&b”. Full Story
The Walking Dead Season 4, Episode 7 recap Name correction from last week’s episode. The lady the Governor hooked up with is Lilly, not Melody. Chronic name blindness strikes again. Also, this week’s episode is titled “Dead Weight”. That’s not, like, foreboding at all. Full Story
Kirsten! Happy Birthday with love from Heidi! THANK YOU for reading my smut for all these years. Trying to make today’s column extra long in your honour. There’s certainly enough material from the AMAs. Hope it’s worthy of you! And for Nikki and GossipCon – congratulations on the event on Friday in New York! Was lovely seeing all of you, talking sh-t with all of you. Full Story
We interviewed Amy Tan yesterday on The Social. I’ve been a fan a long, long time. Tan is currently promoting her new novel The Valley Of Amazement. It is once again a portrait of a mother-daughter relationship set in a courtesan community in Shanghai over a hundred years ago. So it’s a story about family, sex, and gossip. Obviously I’m all over it. Because the book is good (am currently about half way through) but also because Amy Tan is awesome.
She’s saucy. She’s cheeky. She’s hilarious. She’s super, super stylish. Did you see her in head to toe Issey Miyake, whaaaaaaaaaaat? Also, did you know she’s in a cover band called The Rock Bottom Remainders with other writers like Stephen King and Mitch Albom? They only play for charity. She’s the “lead rhythm dominatrix”. This KILLS me.
Have a great weekend!
Yours in gossip,
