Dear Gossips,

Cannes 2019 isn’t over yet but the festival’s biggest story is and will likely continue to be Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time …in Hollywood. So the Cannes love affair with QT continues. They adore him there and, apparently, since the reviews have been outstanding so far, he’s delivered on the Croisette once again.  Read Full Intro

Dear Gossips,

I’m sorry we won’t be posting today. There’s been a family emergency and I won’t be online for most of the day. We are hoping that we’ll be able to stabilise the situation later in the day so, right now, I’m fully expecting to resume our regular gossip schedule tomorrow. 

Apologies for the inconvenience. We never, ever want to skip a day’s worth of content in the middle of the week as we know the privilege of your visits over the years and we are so grateful that you make LaineyGossip a reading destination – thank you so much in advance for understanding. We hope to catch up on everything as soon as we can. 

Yours in gossip,

I tried to write a dedicated post about this couple because, yeah, totally, one of them is a Major Star. And when they first started dating, it was a thing. Perhaps because HE may not have known whether or not it would be a thing – if you recall, there was apparently someone else in the picture at the time too. Full Story

  Game of Thrones concluded this week, and we will discuss its finale for a long, long time. But it’s not the only HBO show that wrapped up on Sunday night—it’s not even the best HBO show that wrapped up this week. Full Story
