The Reinvention of Kirsten Dunst
Irina did an amazing job on this story in this week’s Observer about Kirsten Dunst’s downtownphilia: Ms. Dunst’s open courtship of the downtown scene has resulted in typically jaded New Yorkers’ own fascination with her. There she is! Among us! Just sort of there, hanging out! “She hasn’t been around here in like a year, and then she was nowhere, and then she just shows up in New...

perpetua: skeetonmischa: Has the power of Don Draper made the whole world forget about the awesomeness of “The Wire”?

I attribute my success in no small part to my extreme aversion to walking home from Jay and Tillary streets.
The Jonas Brothers OMG!!!!!

Anyway, for anyone who thought that the Jonas Brothers were strictly a Middle America phenomenon, I think that this $1500-a-person fundraiser at the Ross School in East Hampton proves otherwise.

First Bernie Mac, now Issac Hayes
maura: bg5000: I don’t think Morgan Freeman is out of the woods yet. I’d actually say that Samuel L. Jackson should head to his doctor tout de suite. Um, I actually just got a PRESS RELEASE that began: Doree: Yesterday, it was Bernie Mac. Today it was Isaac Hayes. Could Samuel Jackson be next?

Anyway, the dog kept humping her leg. He would go at it for 30 seconds or so, stop for a minute or two, then go at it again. There were maybe five people standing around outside and we were all staring. The chick kind of...
How Rumors Get Started
So. Right after I left Gawker last September, but before they cut off my access to tips@gawker (heh), we got an anonymous tip that John Edwards was cheating on his wife. This is what the email said: John Edwards is cheating on his wife. This news must be revealed. There was a blind item in Page Six recently… however: My sources come from inside J.E’s little production group that was...
