Dear Gossips,

With two lawsuits filed against John Travolta, even ass-kissy PEOPLE Magazine had to devote an article to his masseur situation yesterday. It ended up being the ΓÇ£most readΓÇ¥ piece on their site and a massive shock to the MiniVan Majority. As I noted yesterday in my coverage of the story - click here if you missed it - a lot of people donΓÇÖt know. As many of you wrote to corroborate, for a lot of people, it was almost impossible.

ΓÇ£But heΓÇÖs married!ΓÇ¥

Thing is, IΓÇÖm not even sure itΓÇÖs up to him anymore. WeΓÇÖll get into the specifics later but it must be a delicate situation to report on if youΓÇÖre PEOPLE or Entertainment Weekly or any of the publications that rely on super friendly relationships with celebrities to exist. You canΓÇÖt not acknowledge the legal drama, but do you indulge in the details? When a star gets married, PEOPLE presents the minutiae, a precise accounting of all the elements of the wedding, down to the exact shade of lavender worn by the mother of the bride. IΓÇÖm guessing that they wonΓÇÖt be including the part about John allegedly lifting his ass in the air, hands on both cheeks, calling attention to the magic spot he wanted rubbed out during his version of massage therapy.

As mentioned yesterday, IΓÇÖm in England on assignment for etalk for a few days. Today is particularly tricky as I flew to London on the red eye and have to cover The Dictator premiere right away. The early part of todayΓÇÖs column was written in flight, Sarah will be contributing a couple of posts, and IΓÇÖll try to do the rest over blackberry. Depending how things work out, and with the time difference, it may end up being a light day with Jacek on Smutty Tingles. Tomorrow is looking wide open though and IΓÇÖll make up for it then. IΓÇÖm sorry for the inconvenience. Thanks for your patience.

Yours in gossip,

Lainey
