Dear Gossips,

I can’t help it. I love Drake. And not just because he’s from Toronto but because… what else do you want in an entertainer?  The Milwaukee Bucks played the Raptors in Toronto last night. The Bucks have been doing a kind of WWE-inspired pre-game routine.  Read Full Intro

Apparently these two have been a thing for at least six months. I don’t remember knowing about this but it’s also possible that I didn’t commit it to memory because it’s been a while since anyone cared about Adrien Brody. But he and Georgina Chapman are still a thing Full Story

Gwyneth Paltrow is taking precautions (remember, she was patient zero in Contagion). She’s heading to Paris Fashion Week, I would guess for Chloe. She’s been very tight with creative director Natacha Ramsay-Levi, even if the collaboration hasn’t been that exciting. Remember the yellow gown for the Met Gala camp theme Full Story

I feel vindicated today. Sasha’s been mocking my BTS obsession for weeks. This morning she texted, probably after watching them on Carpool Karaoke with James Corden. Her message:  “I do think my goal is to laugh as much as BTS.”  Exactly. That’s exactly why, as I wrote yesterday Full Story

Prince Harry was in Edinburgh today working with Travalyst, the sustainable travel initiative he launched last year. He arrived direct to Scotland from Canada where, as we know, he and Meghan Markle have been living since the end of 2019.  The Sussexes have been a major heatscore – they always are but, of course, right now they’re even more in the spotlight than usual because of Sussexit and everybody gossiping about whether or not they’re being ungrateful f-cks or sympathising with them wanting to cut loose out of the UK and the tabloid media, not to mention the backstabbers in the royal environment. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Did you see that tweet a couple of weeks ago, a marked-up Tom and Jerry essay that looked like it had been posted by an English professor and went viral? Super viral.  Teaching my first English course this semester has been rewarding but I don’t know what to do with this student  Read Full Intro
