Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick Make Nice for the Cameras

sjp2 Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick Make Nice for the CamerasLast week, Star reported that Matthew Broderick was cheating on wife Sarah Jessica Parker with a 25-year-old redhead, whom he wasn’t very nice to. (It hurts us to discuss the sordid details; read them only if you must.)

And last night, presumably in an effort to appear as though everything in their relationship was just peachy, the couple made an outing to midtown looking very much together, according to the Daily Mail. Ms. Parker and Mr. Broderick, who are often described as a "private couple," walked out of a Chinese restaurant (could it have been Szechuan Gourmet, recently given two stars by Frank Bruni in the Times?), smiling for photos and walking arm in arm.

According to anonymous "sources" quoted in the Daily Mail, the couple have been living separate lives and has only stayed together for their son. "Sarah and Matthew have been struggling for years. Now they have decided to make things work – especially for the sake of their son, James," added the "source."

"They have never had a conventional marriage, but it works for the two of them. Sure, they fight like other couples but they love each other and their little boy," said another unnamed source. "They are so private and hate all this silly gossip."

STAR OF DAVID OR 'PLAIN STAR'?   If you thought "CP Time" was impolitic, on July 2 Donald Trump posted a picture on Twitter of a Star of David on top of a pile of cash next to Hillary Clinton's face. You'd think after the aforementioned crime stats incident (or after engaging a user called "@WhiteGenocideTM," or blasting out a quote from Benito Mussolini, or...) Trump would have learned to wait a full 15 seconds before hitting the "Tweet" button. But not only was the gaffe itself bad, the attempts at damage control made the BP oil spill response look a virtuoso performance.  About two hours after the image went up on Trump's account, somebody took it down and replaced it with a similar picture that swapped the hexagram with a circle (bearing the same legend "Most Corrupt Candidate Ever!"!). Believe it or not, it actually got worse from there. As reports arose that the first image had originated on a white supremacist message board, Trump insisted that the shape was a "sheriff's star," or "plain star," not a Star of David. And he continued to sulk about the coverage online and in public for days afterward, even when the media was clearly ready to move on. This refusal to just let some bad press go would haunt him later on.
