Net Neutrality!!

"The Belle from Hell" clue

http://www.laineygossip.com/ArticleDetail.aspx?ID=2274

Courteney Cox isn’t friendly?

Shocker of all shockers! Sources on the set of her new movie filming in Toronto are reporting that Courteney is actually the opposite of warm and fuzzy. “Borderline rude” is how it was described to me. You know how you always hear about certain stars who are so sweet to their co-workers, the crew, everyone involved? Renee Zellweger comes to mind. By all accounts, one of the nicest, most professional superstars in the world. Sandra Bullock also has the same reputation. Courteney on the other hand can be surrounded by a room full of people and still won’t be bothered to acknowledge anyone around her. Lovely, isn’t it? Another Hollywood illusion blown to pieces. No wonder she and Jen are such great friends. Frauds of a feather flock together…

"The Belle from Hell" revealed

http://www.laineygossip.com/Lynda_Carter_looks_younger_than_Courteney_Cox.aspx

It’s Wonder Woman!

Lynda Carter showed up at the launch of some video game yesterday. A lot of stars actually showed up for the launch of that video game. Video gaming is a lucrative business these days…perhaps even more than movie making.

Sorry, I digress.

Wonder Woman used to be my life. My mother used to wear her hair like Wonder Woman. She’s always had great hair. After she moved out, I used to watch it and imagine my mom was doing the same – out there saving the world. Or yelling at someone really loudly. She left some of her clothes behind and I remember sticking my little feet into her heels and hobbling around like a grown up, wondering why Wonder Woman was allowed to wear her underwear outside…

Lynda Carter is well into her fifties now. But here she is, posing with one time Botox Courteney Cox, and looking just as young, if not younger. And DEFINITELY younger than Granny Freeze Nicole Kidman.

But Courteney looks ghastly, non?

What’s the point of working your tits off at the gym and staying away from fries when your face precludes anyone from looking down anyway? Or maybe it’s a case of Karma Face. This belle is a beast. And now she’s showing it on the outside.

Body or Baby?

http://www.laineygossip.com/Body_or_Baby_blind_item.aspx

A couple of years ago, I was the first to write about the celebrity IV diet – many of them would admit themselves to hospital under the care of a proper physician for 10 days, 2 weeks or so, eliminating food in favour of an IV drip chock full of essentials to keep one alive while starving. Click here for a refresher.

Mainstream outlets only picked up on this last month.

Needless to say, the IV diet presents some major health issues. It’s also not that convenient. How many weeks on end can you disappear in a given year without arousing suspicion, to say nothing of the limitations on actually having a real life – who wants to spend weeks at a time away from home?

This is why she chose something, for her anyway, that was more … flexible. In more ways than one.

She was always super thin before baby. But after baby it’s been hard to lose the last 10. And to her credit, she did try hard. But nothing was working. And drastic measures had to be taken. Which is why she’s had one of those “lap band” things installed. Like gastric bypass (stomach stapling) only much less invasive.

But it’s typically for the morbidly obese. Not for an already slender women wanting to be more slender who is carrying around an extra few pounds.

Whatever. This is Hollywood. And this is a woman who needs to keep up.

So the weight came off. She’s stick thin again. And all’s good, right?

Well… the problem is that they’ve always wanted to add to their family. And it’s apparently recommended that the device be deflated or however they render it ineffective when a couple is trying to conceive. So he’s been like – ok, you’re done, you’re back to where you wanted to be so let’s get going!

But she’s too scared to stop the band thing, she’s addicted to the skinny, and her body over baby choice is now threatening her marriage.

SJP this morning taking James Wilkie to school more dressed up than usual for the daily routine. James’s hair is starting to resemble his mother’s. Very cute.

Not so cute are his mother’s scrawny legs. They’ve always been scrawny. Like the rest of her. She says it’s simple genetics. That she’s always been a rail.

Oh really?

Have you seen Honeymoon in Vegas? Go back and watch it if you’re ever curious. Back then she had an ass. She was thin and she was fit, but look at her in the white dress. Those are some curves.

I’ve attached a compilation video. Never mind the music. Just note the body. Like it’s completely foreign to her now. Yeah. It totally must be simple genetics.

Because somehow SJP got tiny.

And she’s also been keeping a very, very low profile these days.

Mr Dandy Matthew Broderick on the other hand, well he showed up at the Project ALS benefit gala at the Waldorf Astoria two nights ago all by himself. Sarah Jessica Parker passed up the opportunity to walk the carpet in a special dress at a charity function? But she loves the carpet!

Maybe they couldn’t find a sitter?

Sorry to make you feel badly about yourself on a Friday but it’s Gisele Bundchen shooting a music video yesterday on Melrose, proving once again that all things are not equal. I have pored over three agency photos of this woman. She does not take a bad picture. Not one.

The video was apparently co-directed by Kevin Connolly and Lukas Haas. I’m sure it was a bitch to get up for work.

Interesting the Lukas Haas connection. Lukas is one of Leo’s boys, a member of his legendary pussy posse. Things must be rather civilised between G and Leo. And from her perspective, why not? Tom Brady is a f&cking stud. It’s a pleasant improvement, a no brainer, on so many levels.

http://www.laineygossip.com/Leonardo_DiCaprio_Parade_Magazine_interview.aspx

Softer, gentler, a little more grown up.

Certainly Leonardo DiCaprio has his flaws and like most celebrities he can’t help but be a hypocrite on some level. At the very least though, as it relates to privacy and ulterior motives, unlike Shelf Ass and Pipsqueak, when Leo says he abhors the paps, he truly does abhor the paps. He truly does go out of his way to stay away.

For someone as famous as he is, and he is VERY famous, there are precious few candid pictures taken far apart and very infrequently, quite an accomplishment when you consider the success of Titanic. He was hunted, he was idolised, he was pushed into a hearthrobby little box and he managed to bust out.

So as far as child stars go, Leo is certainly an exception.

Speaking to Parade Magazine, Leo attributes all of this to his parents:

“All I have left are my parents. I know that if one of them had been any different, it would have sent my life into a spiral of misunderstandings and insecurities about the world and about the relationships I have. Ninety percent of the people I meet are dealing with issues they can’t overcome because of bad parenting. That’s the truth.

There’s that side of you that says, ‘Time to get over the hurt and move on. It’s hard to do. So you just hang on to the emotion that this one didn’t love me, or why didn’t that relationship last? That stuff stays with you forever. You want to say, ‘Get over yourself! Come on! Time to grow up!’ Some people are able to do that, but a lot of us remain victims of it. So I was fortunate with my parents. Without them, I would never have been able to be as level-headed as I am, considering everything that’s happened to me.”


Having said that, even though he prefers the path of the actor over the movie star, unlike that f&cking ingrate Katherine Heigl, Leo ultimately appreciates what Titanic brought him:

“I am proud to have been in Titanic. I’m grateful for the possibilities it’s given me. If it hadn’t been for that movie, I wouldn’t have been able to take control of my career. It was during that time that I started to think about things that meant more to the world than this glorified, superficial media exposure of me, something I never felt was justified.”

With great power comes great responsibility, right?

And professionally too, Leonardo made choices that allowed him to actually mine his own talent for more than an epic romance. Even if you hate him, you have to admire that he doesn’t make sh-t. He carefully picks and chooses his projects, he doesn’t release a film every 6 months, and the result has been a very impressive resumé:

"When I choose to do any movie, I certainly take into account the values it expresses. I like to think that I choose a film on more than just the opportunity to work with a certain director or group of actors. When I read a script, I look for a certain amount of truth about humanity in the storyline. That's what I respond to. That's why I've done the movies I've done, and that's why I've steered away from other types of projects. What I respond to are fundamentally truthful characters, and to a script that says something pertinent and honest about the world we live in. And I can't help responding that way."

For a Parade article, it’s actually a rather insightful interview. Leo speaks candidly about losing his grandmother, about love and relationships and yes…

He alludes to the end of his Pussy Posse era, admitting that the days when he said he’d never settle down are now over. That he does see marriage in his future. That it was immature to say in the past that he’d never ever settle down. That love is all important.

Makes my smutty sense tingle. Did losing Gisele Bundchen change his player ways? I think so, yes.

You?

Yum. I think he needs to go back on The Freebie Five.

Are very well trained. In the art of media manipulation and pimping their employer out as a desirable woman.

Oh Jennifer Aniston. All those self help books and still the desperation gives her no peace. To the point now that she’s resorting to letting her security team work her PR.

According to X17, the other day Jen went to Leonardo DiCaprio’s to shoot a PSA. Leo is tight with Tobey Maguire who is married to Jennifer Meyer who is part of the Aniston-Courteney Friend circle. It would mean that this would not be the first time Jennifer Aniston and Leo D found themselves together.

Besides, it’s not like they were alone.

Tobey’s there too, and also Kate Bosworth, and Seth Rogen, and Selma Blair, and even Usher to round out the big party.

Just a few nights before it was confirmed Leo and Bar Rafaeli had not split…

In other words, no one was suspecting anything. Period.

But Jen’s bodyguard seemed fixated, stalking around the paps, warning them: “You’re not going to start rumours, are you? Don’t start any rumours”…to the point that the photogs made the observation that it “seemed as if someone told Jen’s bodyguard to talk to the paps about The Story – just to make it one in the first place!”

Is Stephen Huvane running out of tricks?

He must be.

Who the f&ck in their right mind would believe that Leonardo DiCaprio could ever possibly be interested in Jennifer Aniston?

Again…now that we’re back to this…

Hello John Stamos?

He is her lobster!!!!

Caution right off the top – if you’re the prudey type, some details here are not for you. Click away or hold your peace. Don’t be emailing me with a lewd complaint since you were given ample warning.

Celebrities are surrounded all the time by beautiful women. Especially him. He boasts an impressive track record, minus one infection, and so you would think, for a regular, non famous girl, even a really, really beautiful non famous girl, it would be an insurmountable obstacle to catch his eye…right?

Not so.

But just because it’s easy to attract him doesn’t mean it’s easy to … pleasure him. Turns out his libido doesn’t quite match up to the legend. And his prowess isn’t exactly the smoothest either. SO disappointing.

She and her girlfriends found him at a club in Vegas recently. Danced in front of his booth and eventually caught his eye. He sent over the bodyguard, they were invited to join, and soon everyone ended up in his suite, even though he’s supposed to have a sexy steady. On this night however he was playing single.

First he asked his evening’s target to give him a massage. She obliged. Eventually they ended up alone in his room. Making out turned to sex. He used a condom and went through the conventional motions. Highly unimaginative and even a little… gross?

Apparently our superstar superstud releases the most unpleasant sound effects. Grunts and groans and straight up no rhythm pounding, making it clear that without a cinematographer and a world class director, he isn’t exactly the undercover loverboy we all believed he was.

Like, no moves whatsoever.

Needless to say, his lame technique wasn’t getting him anywhere, so in relief he asked her to fondle his boys instead. By boys I mean balls. A gorgeous, willing girl in his bed, game for anything… and in the end he could only finish in his own hand in front of her.

Too much champagne, I guess. But still… dude… if this is how you stray, you might need to work on your alcohol to erection ratio. This kind of thing is an embarrassment.

Ashley Judd attended the World Youth AIDS gala last night wearing this. What is that? Why is that? Why would anyone wear that?

Ashley’s career has slowed down dramatically the last few years since she married – perhaps by choice but also by reality. Head to head among her peers like Julianne Moore or Laura Linney, Naomi Watts, Salma Hayek, Halle Berry, Kate Winslet, Cate Blanchett, my Gwyneth, Renee Zellweger (and the list goes on and on and on) the truth is how would Ashley Judd ever out-act any of those ladies just mentioned?

Her next feature is Tooth Fairy with The Rock…B List At Best, right?

And then there was that curious little trip to rehab for emotional problems. Ashley said it changed her life profoundly and that she emerged from the experience a happier, more whole person. The stones must have helped too.

Ashley will start shooting Tooth Fairy in Vancouver soon. Last time she was here the stones helped her find her me space. Something for the crew to look forward to.

UPDATE: I've been schooled and I'm an ignorant hag. Ama W emailed to say this is not a designer dress but a traditional African one to honour African culture and fabric.

Amazing her work with disadvantaged parts of the world. This must be why she needs her quiet time on set.

Sean Penn and Robin Wright Penn showed up last night at the premiere of What Just Happened in New York last night, both gorgeous, especially Sean with shorter hair and having taken a bath. He’s not universally hot but there’s something about what smolders underneath.

It’s been almost a year since the two announced their split and then took it back, deciding to reconcile after filing for divorce…which means their commitment should be totally renewed right?

Thing is, he wasn’t exactly hiding his female companions late at night when he headed the jury panel at Cannes back in May. At the VIP club on at least one occasion, Sean was flanked by two beautiful ladies and they weren’t just talking. And it wasn’t a secret either.

Hollywood marriages aren’t conventional. Theirs clearly clicks on a different sort of beat.

http://www.laineygossip.com/Janet_Jackson_taken_to_hospital_cancels_Montreal_concert.aspx

As you’ve probably heard, Janet Jackson was supposed to play Montreal last night. Instead, at the last minute, she fell ill during sound check, was taken to hospital, released 2 hours later, leaving thousands of fans without a show.

Promoters have promised to make it up.

Meanwhile, Janet is said to be fine, and getting ready for her next stop in Boston.

Is your smutty sense tingling?

EVERYONE’s smutty sense is tingling. No one seems to be buying the “fallen ill” excuse, especially since Janet pulls the sick trick rather often…

Not to say that it wouldn’t suck if she truly was suffering but then again, she is a Jackson. Most of the time, the sick is in the head. And none of them seem to have come out of high school either. High school builds character. The Jacksons raised an entire family of limp, insecure freaks.

So there was an item yesterday in Page Six… something about Janet’s boyfriend Jermaine Dupri mixing champagne and tequila (ew!) and throwing up, literally, into her lap. In public. At a club.

Obviously mortifying.

Next thing you know, she doesn’t want to play Montreal.

Like teenage drama, right?

Remember when something sh*tty would happen at school? Like you hit a bad note during your solo or when Martin called you a yellow-bellied chink in Grade 7 during recess because you liked Olivier instead? Or when that hot guy 3 years older told everyone you went all the way when it was totally just making out in the bathroom?

Remember how tempting it was not to show up the next day? Remember how relieved you were when you did show up and realised it wasn’t so bad? Remember that weak morning when you couldn’t come up with the courage?

Was it like that for Janet Jackson this morning?

Attached – Janet tour photo and with Jermaine taken the night the alleged puking went down.

Shamef&ck, GayFace, and the other one

The boys of Gossip Girl on the cover of the new Details.

At best Penn Badgley is an afterthought. At worst, he's a no thought. An afterthought > a no thought but still, it's like the pasta dish at a steak restaurant. Does anyone ever really?

Chace Crawford? Marginally more interesting because of what he likes to do in the city, something he addresses but doesn't exactly deny when discussing his "GayFace" which he actually does in the article. The thing with Chace though, having observed him on more than one occasion and most recently at the MMVAs in Toronto - what's totally offputting is the constant and carefully choreographed "brooding", almost as though he's repeating "James Dean, James Dean, James Dean" over and over and over again in his head.

Ummm...not even close, sister.

Which brings us to Chuck Bass. Ed Westwick had a girlfriend. Ed Westwick is now single, despite that random hook up with Drew Barrymore last week, and is the recipient of more phone numbers than he knows what to do with but hopefully whatever he does do is dirty and hurts a little but not too much. Gah! I'm old! He's an infant!

However, there are new discoveries that rank along with the turned out feet and the fact that he's wee. Perhaps not quite dealbreakers but lame attributes nonetheless.

It's his tattoos.

He has one on this chest that says HEARTBREAK HOTEL and another under his shoulder 21 GRAMS.

Child... please. That's cool to a 14 year old but maybe for 5 minutes.
Are you rolling your eyes?

But that's the appeal of the Shamef*ck isn't it? He's f*cking disgusting...and yet you can't help yourself. To further this point - watch the video that Details filmed during the boys' cover shoot. Hear him speak. It's a shot to the loins...

And more?

Paris Fashion Week. Balenciaga. Salma Hayek arrived with the big boss and her baby daddy Francois Henri Pinault. He runs the company that owns the brand. Apparently the two have been spending a lot of time together this week, definitely friendly, though not openly affectionate, and comfortably at ease around each other especially with their daughter Valentina, prompting speculation that they will reunite.

Or perhaps it's just not ugly because it was always a business relationship to begin with?

Even at the beginning, it seemed like for Salma it was pragmatism over passion. And word is, these days she prefers life as an executive over life as an actor. For most actors, the power range is limited and Salma supposedly likes to wield her bitch stick across a wider terrain, which likely means that a high profile, lust fuelled affair with George Clooney is probably unlikely.

Pity.

http://www.laineygossip.com/Rumour_has_it_Kristin_Davis_demanded_100K_to_attend_Sex_and_the_City_DVD_launch.aspx

At the Sex & the City DVD launch party last week – three girls showed up, one was missing…

The official reason for Kristin Davis’s absence was that she was working, something about shooting a commercial.

And here’s what’s being offered at the other end of the smutty buffet:

Rumour has it, Kristin bailed because she supposedly demanded a $100K appearance fee from Warner Bros and was rejected. The studio wasn’t cashing up for anyone else and it certainly wasn’t about to cash up for her…

Not to be mean but it’s not like Kristin’s career has been hopping since the series ended. In fact, attending the release probably served her interests better than theirs. Worse still, she thought people would care when she didn’t show and … no one did. So now allegedly she’s all contrite, fearful she may have f&cked up any opportunity to be in the sequel. After all, what’s left for Charlotte anyway?

Now there’s a shake up I can agree with.

As for the launch party itself – word is Warners put in almost $1 million to celebrate the DVD release which was rather poorly attended. Even Variety mentioned that SJP didn’t bother to join the main area of the event, preferring to head straight into VIP and wonder about her husband…

http://www.laineygossip.com/Because_he_ignores_her.aspx

Another week, another riddle involving a coke fiend. Everyone does it, but it's not the doing that's intriguing, it's the who's doing that's intriguing. Especially since her reputation is supposed to be so civilised and enlightened: a doting mother, a successful business, an artist (debatable), and an icon to many a MiniVan member. ironic as it may seem considering the original spirit of the inspiration.

The situation is actually even more shocking considering her past. Having had that kind of experience with addiction though, perhaps there are only 2 roads: to shun drugs fiercely or, as it is in this case, to embrace them dangerously in her time of need.

It's not just genes that keep her so thin.

Turns out it's a habit that's making her very sick. Friends and family are becoming concerned. They're saying "she's not doing well", observing that her use has dramatically escalated, that she is becoming increasingly anti-social and withdrawn, removed out of embarrassment from her usual circle, and when forced out in public, looking awkward and seemingly unable to cope in social settings where she was once comfortable.

The reason?

It's not those laughable rumours of infidelity. It's actually because he ignores her. Never the child, but always her. Not deliberately but because she has no part in his life. It used to be he'd show up for the professional events, at the very least. Now she has to beg. And then it's only a maybe. He's not spiteful about it, he just doesn't care. Even on the forced holiday he could barely bother to acknowledge her and when they came home, he couldn't wait to get away.

So she retreats and she escapes and he still doesn't notice. When confronted about it by close confidantes, he insists there's not a problem. And he probably truly believes that, completely oblivious is he to her problems.

As such, her team is desperately trying to get her some new work, something else to focus on instead of moping around at home weighed down by disappointment.

Artistically though, it may be bad news. Forcing a project on the heels of something already forced is probably just going to lead to more sh*t.

Having said that, if it saves her, in the end, I guess that's what friends would do.

Thankfully, Chuck Bass is not that kind of boy in the city. When you think about it though, he is EXACTLY Drew’s kind of boy in the city: young, quirky, not empirically goodlooking, oozes attitude and sex appeal, and not gay…

So it’s no surprise.

NY Magazine spotted the two of them last night making out hardcore in New York after a concert, continuing on to the Bowery and at one point, Ed had Drew straddled over his lap. They spent many long minutes grinding away with no regard about who was watching.

Amazing.

As you’d expect, he left all smug and Chucky…

Love, love, love.

Granny Freeze: the working mom

When Gwyneth was on Oprah last week, she talked about going back to work, or rather choosing not to work, after having children, explaining that her focus as an “artist” now has been to look for and take on supporting roles instead of leading parts so that she does not have to spend so much time away from her children.

My Gwynnie says it’s the 14 hour days that can break your heart. Leaving for the set before the kids wake up, coming home from an all day shoot after the kids are already in bed.

That’s the life of an actor and since she has the luxury of being able to maintain her lifestyle without a job, Gwyneth was quite honest about not wanting to miss a day. As she put it “you can never get that time back”.

I’m a baby-hating bitch of a shrew but even I can appreciate that sentiment.

And then there’s Nicole Kidman. Granny Freeze barely waited a month before heading to Sydney for Australia reshoots and then it was straight to London to prepare for Nine. As such, Sunday Rose has been living on a film set while mom devotes much of her time to satiating her ambition, chased relentlessly by the fear that she’ll become irrelevant if she takes a break both from the botox and from the camera.

Is it fair to judge a woman for wanting a family and a career?

Perhaps not.

But Gran has already reached the summit of star success, non? She has an Oscar, she is regarded as one of the finest in the business, she has worked with the finest in the business…

So really, what’s left that can’t wait until after a baby break? Especially since this is a woman who publicly wailed about her difficulties conceiving, who wistfully described her desire for a bucolic utopia in Nashville with her musician husband and daughter, who plaintively complained of a life deprived of privacy, who said that family is the priority over her profession…

It’s like when Jennifer Aniston kept saying she wanted babies with Brad Pitt and then took 6 movie roles in succession after the conclusion of Friends.

Begs the question: do you really?

Granny – do you really?

This is Nicole with Sunday and Keith, out for her weekly pap appearance and then again, as Sunday stayed behind presumably with the nanny, husband and wife were seen leaving the Wyndhams Theatre after a performance of Ivanov – yet another in a series of high brow pursuits during which Keith was undoubtedly riveted.

It’s when he’s away from her, surrounded by his boys, that he can truly enjoy himself. Rumour has it they call her the golden handcuff. Snort.

Worst Emmy 2008: Not Alyssa Milano

This is the only photo I could find. Which is shocking. Worst dressed photos sell almost as briskly as best dressed ones.

…the f&ck was she thinking???

Am most offended by the small details. Like those shoes. Those Asian massage parlour shoes. Jessica Simpson shoes. Shoes for women with two names - Betty Lou, Connie Sue, Sally Mae, Peggy Lee – who aspire to aging like Dolly Parton: garish makeup, bleached out hair, frosty blue eye shadow, and two pigs fighting under a blanket that make up her ass.

Alyssa Milano chose those shoes.

And a FAN SHAPED PLASTIC CLUTCH to match.
UPDATE: Even though the photo agencies tagged it as Alyssa Milano, apparently it's not Alyssa Milano but some woman called Christina de...something. Which is actually almost worse. It's one thing to wear it and look like sh*t, it's another to not wear it but be identified as someone else wearing it looking like sh*t.
Might be time for Alyssa Milano to shake up that career, non?

Dear Gossips,

For my dear friend Michelle C who stole Adrien Brody's booth. HAPPY BIRTHDAY! And a busy year ahead? Miss you.
All my sons opened on Broadway last night and the GMD was greeted by about 2 dozen protesters holding up signs.

F&cking amazing.

As you would expect, he remained undeterred, almost levitating out if his seat with excitement, assaulting everyone with enthusiasm about how “proud” he when the performance was over. Early word is that Katie is good, “holding her own” next to her more experienced co-stars. Unfortunately she looked like sh*t. Tired, spent, gaunt, looking old in old lady pants but bravely smiling as he led her to dinner afterwards, his hand gripped around hers as usual, totally the perfect couple…right?

Sigh.

Her face makes me sad.

And my friends make me jealous. In Toronto last night as NKOTB kicked off their tour! It was 13 all over again. A giant estrogen sing-along. The boys have been well behaved while they’re in town, with family joining them for the kick off so no late night fun in the sparkly part of the city… just yet.

Friday! Need sleep!

Have a great weekend!

Yours in gossip,

Lainey
