For Linh and her Little Man and 14 years of love, all love – this is the deal we make with our companions, right? We know that it’s inevitable, but we do it anyway …because why? Because it’s so f-cking worth it. It’s worth the look on his face in this photo. All the looks that you knew during your time together: when he was being a lazy slug, when he was happy to see you when you came home, when he was side-eying you for not patting him fast enough, when you woke up and he was there, and ready to be the best part of your day. Full Story

Amanda! Happy Birthday! By request, here’s your current crush, Taron Egerton. He’s adorable, I’m not here to kill your crush. But if you really want me to share a story, it’ll make me sound like an asshole. You were warned. We interviewed him a few years ago on The Social, Kathleen produced this. Full Story

HEZ! Happy Milestone Birthday! Whatever you’re doing – Vegas, dogs, taxidermy, podcasts – keep on it, because your best life sounds amazing. And I look forward to hearing about New York in September. You don’t need recommendations from me about New York. That’s the thing about New York, it shows a different side to everyone. Full Story

For those of you outside Canada, I work on a live daytime talk show here called The Social, just renewed for a 7th season. As I may have mentioned, our audience coordinator, Derek Forgie, is one of the reasons for our success. He is, no exaggeration, the best in the business. We have international celebrities telling us all the time that they’ve never seen anyone with this energy and ability to pump up an audience. Full Story

To Jen, on your 35th! You can be very proud of all you've accomplished so far. Your fave, Celine, is to earnestness and emotion as you are to hard work and determination. Love you the most. Diane From Lainey: this is the perfect time to revisit this video:     Full Story

For Bella and Bianco, for the last 3 months – he was a king in white fur and kings don’t crumble, so you honoured him in the best way. I know you let him go with dignity and, now that I’m looking at his face, that boy was DIGNIFIED. Look at that pose! Of course he was there for you at your lowest, and I know you said he gave you purpose, but don’t forget that it was his purpose too. Full Story

As some of you may know, I’m one of five co-hosts on a daytime talk show here in Canada called The Social. If you’ve been to The Social, you’ve probably met one of our MVPs, our secret sauce, one of the reasons our show is the most fun: Derek Forgie, our audience coordinator. Full Story
