Dear Gossips,

Maybe we do need to start recapping Scandal next season. We currently don’t have a conventional network show on the roster anyway. And, like I said last week, soap opera for soap opera, Scandal >>> Downton Abbey. Because, among other things, it knows exactly what it is. ANY QUESTIONS?!?!?

Heads up re: SMUT 2013!

Here are the dates for this year’s SMUT Soirees...

June 3 -- Vancouver
June 5 -- Calgary
June 25 -- Toronto

Tickets for Vancouver and Calgary go on sale on Monday, May 13. The SMUT Soiree Instagram is here. Follow @thesmutsoiree on Instagram for a two hour lead on purchasing that day. Toronto tickets will be available soon. I’ll let you know in a couple of weeks. Heading to Vegas today for a junket and to, hopefully, buy some SMUT shoes. I’ve been in a shoe slump since September. The column has been pre-written to account for my flight time and I’ll resume posting as soon as I land. There should be no interruption to your gossip schedule.

Have a great weekend. And HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!

Yours in gossip,
