Dear Gossips,

I checked the Vanity Fair website first thing this morning to prep for an upcoming Gwyneth Paltrow post (coming later) but look what I found instead:

20 years after his passing, it’s a new book that examines his final days and River’s career in the context of the Hollywood of his time, including interviews with those who knew and worked with him. River and Hollywood in the 90s. Please. I’ve already pre-ordered it. Why did I never know that River’s name is anagram for “Viper Heroin X”? For those of you who don’t believe in superstition and the supernatural, science can’t explain that.

Yours in gossip,
