Elizabeth Hurley has a new boyfriend. His name is David Yarrow, 48. He’s a billionaire (obviously). He made his money in hedge funds and is now a photographer. So the good news, I guess, is that she’s no longer with that gross Shane Warne. The bad news… I look at this man’s ripped jeans and his Simon Cowell sweater and, well, I already have an opinion. Full Story

When Andrew Garfield didn’t show up at the Oscars, one of the theories was that something had happened between him and Emma Stone. Then he was accused of being a dick during Oscar rehearsals and bailing on Batkid. Then he was exonerated. So it’s fine. All fine. They’re fine. And we have photos as confirmation. Full Story

Last week it was WE Day. They sat in the audience together and made it very clear how close they are. And tactile. Click here for a refresher. Yesterday Harry took Cressida to a rugby match. So another public appearance and she’s looking up at him adoringly and we’re getting acclimated now to the fact that they're out there, in the open, increasingly comfortable in the open, because, if the reports are to be believed, they’ll be official soon – a new royal engagement to distract us. Full Story

If you’ve been reading my blog long enough, you know this has been near the top of my Gossip Genie wish list. Maybe even at the very, very top. For a while there it was looking unlikely. But lately… Oh lately… They tease. I hope they’re not teasing. Because this is my happiness. Full Story

Drake’s been on tour in Paris. And…Rihanna also happens to be in Paris. Ohhhhh realllllly? There was a dinner the other night. Last night they were both at Club 79 – where Robin Thicke was groping strange women not too long ago – and some are saying they were on it. I just got an email telling me that they were hooking up all night. Full Story

A friend of mine said to me the other day, “I hate Jennifer Lawrence”. I could not understand it. This friend loves Emma Thompson, dogs, sports, and the Royal Family. To me, Jennifer Lawrence totally fits that equation. But in her mind, Jennifer Lawrence doesn’t go with Emma Thompson, dogs, sports, and the Royal Family. Full Story

Earlier this week, the full text of Graydon Carter’s piece on Gwyneth Paltrow, deliciously titled “The Paltrow Affair”, was posted on Vanity Fair’s website. You can read it here. Carter writes about the genesis of the Paltrow article – how in an editorial meeting, they were all talking about her polarising image, so he spent an hour on GOOP and decided it was worth a story and assigned Vanessa Grigoriadis to it and then G found out and told her friends not to talk to the magazine and it all blew up. Full Story

Drake was supposed to be on the cover of the new issue of Rolling Stone. The magazine decided to go with Philip Seymour Hoffman instead. And Drake decided to rage about it on Twitter. What initially set him off was that he claims that he didn’t disrespect Kanye West in the interview.
