Blake’s “First Choice”

Blake Lively is beginning promotion for Savages. This, allegedly, is the film that will really prove that she belongs in the same conversation as Carey Mulligan, Keira Knightley, and the others. Remember 2011? Remember my favourite question? How did she DO that? How did Blake Lively get Leonardo DiCaprio on his knees in Verona? How did she convince him to get papped with her so many times, including handholding in Monte Carlo? How did she make him look like a chump when she bailed on his ass as soon as Ryan Reynolds opened the door? How did she DO that? Blake is featured in the new issue of BULLET. Full Story

As expected, PEOPLE Magazine outbid everyone else for the first photos of Jessica Simpson’s baby Maxwell Drew. There’s also an exclusive interview. Since everyone goes crazy over babies and everything baby-related these days, they expect this to be a big seller which is why Maxwell’s first job as a Baby Pimp earned her mother a million dollar paycheque. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Welcome back to those of you in the US returning from your long weekend. We posted on a regular schedule here yesterday - please scroll down to catch up on any stories you may have missed.

Am convinced that the purpose of Twitter is to make people feel old. When I fired up the Twitter this morning, still not quite alert, “Die In Your Arms” was trending. I suspect it probably still is. My reaction was, “OMG, Cutting Crew is trending?!?”

Obviously not Cutting Crew.

Die In Your Arms is the title of Justin Bieber’s new song...which, um, no, I don’t hate and if Tom Hardy asked me to slow dance to it I totally would. But it’s not Cutting Crew. Nothing quite compares to 80s cheese rock.

Yours in gossip,


Kate recycles for the Queen

Ten days ago, Queen Elizabeth hosted a reception for world royalty at Windsor Castle. Princess Catherine wore a pink dress with a pleated skirt. Click here to see. The Queen’s annual garden party happened today at Buckingham Palace. And Kate wore the same dress. Full Story

Colin could have been Tom vs Jeremy

Every morning I scan through photo agencies to get an idea of what I might want to write about. When I saw these new shots of Colin Farrell in Philadelphia yesterday I wondered how I’d be able to work Tom Hardy into a post about him... because this is what happens when you have a Summer Crush Full Story

You know what I always say: Girl Sh-t Is The Best Sh-t. It is the fuel of gossip. Girl Sh-t lives in the heart of every great smutty story. From the Brange-Aniston Triangle to all the Twi-Hard in-fighting, Girl Sh-t is pure entertainment and, ultimately, if you want to get profound up in here, Girl Sh-t is where celebrities are at their most relatable. Full Story

Charlize Theron left LA yesterday to make the morning show rounds in New York today. Snow White And The Huntsman opens on Friday. My review will be posted later this week. I saw the movie a few weeks ago in England while on the junket. We were about 90 minutes outside of London, a small town called Arundel, where stands an old castle that they used as the backdrop for the interviews. Full Story

Girls Season 1 Ep 7 recap We're back in New York - Bushwick, to be exact - in one of the strongest episodes of the season. Girls is, like any other show, finding its legs and what's important to its storytelling, and is progressing into something interesting, if not something new and never seen before. Full Story

Is this Johanna Mason?

There’s a random rumour circulating that Glee’s Dianna Agron is a potential candidate to play Johanna Mason in Catching Fire, the sequel to The Hunger Games. Please note however that I can’t find ANY legit source to support this report. Dianna Agron? Would you buy Dianna Agron as the cunning, savvy Johanna? Maybe she’s been limited on Glee. Full Story
