Now that Lindsay Lohan has been kicked out of the Chateau Marmont for not paying her $46,000 bill, it is time for her to pack her bags and move Eastward. Surprisingly, the LAPD is letting her do this, despite the fact that up until yesterday she was the prime suspect in yet another jewel-swiping case. And what of The Canyons? Will no one think of The Canyons?
Just when you hoped that New York City had successfully dodged its last heat-seeking paparazzo after Los Angeles’ native Kim Kardashian left the Gansevoort, the New York Daily News is reporting that LiLo is moving to Tribeca and rooming with her assistant.
But where will she ultimately be hanging her temporary hat? We have some ideas.
“Normal guy” Brett Cohen punked a bunch of Times Square tourists recently when he hired a crew of cameramen, bodyguards and assistants to follow him around 42nd Street and pretend like he was somebody special. It totally worked! People thought he was famous and tried to get his autograph or have him pose for a picture while pretending to know who he was or why they should care about him. Because, you know … sheeple.
Except, here’s the thing. Well, here’s the video, and then here’s the thing.
James Franco, the real voice of our generation, has taken time out from his busy schedule of Art and Teaching and also Learning to begin a Huffington Post diary. It’s about time!
So what important issue of our times is Mr. Franco tackling? President Obama’s stance on gay rights? The construction of Marina Abramovic‘s performance space over on the Hudson? His new album, perhaps?
Those are all great guesses, but James Franco is actually here to talk to us today about a matter close to his heart: Haunted tours in New Orleans that he took with his Nana. (Which is the name of his Japanese hairdresser, not his grandmother.)
Much has been made the last several days of the secretive nature of Jay-Z’s conversations while sitting in the front row of basketball games (Knicks and Nets). He covers his mouth to avoid lip-readers, has a secret handshake for friends like LeBron James, and may be using some form of covert CIA-level cryptology to alert his posse that he needs more popcorn.
Our long national nightmare is over and a time of miracles has come. Alec Baldwin, of the Amazing Flying and Words With Friends-Playing Acting Baldwins, has returned to Twitter. Baldwin left the social networking site and his half-million-plus faithful followers bereft of his gruff but avuncular presence in early December after his storied blowup with American Airlines. Mr. Baldwin would not comply with a flight attendant’s commands to turn off Words With Friends, reasonably noting on Twitter at the time that the plane wasn’t even moving yet. American Airlines responded swiftly to the incident but for the famously crotchety actor didn’t seem mollified. For his own mysterious reasons, Baldwin shortly thereafter tweeted that he wanted everyone to unfollow him.
It’s rare that Kanye West is not speaking out against one thing or another, but he remained strangely silent yesterday when visiting Zuccotti Park.
New York’s Fashion Week wasn’t exactly a picnic for Lindsay Lohan. In a single night she managed to throw cocktails at a cameraman in the Boom Boom Room and a photographer in Electric Room, while also causing a commotion when a woman sitting next to her started bleeding profusely. The next day, she was Read More
In the late summer of 1987, actor George Hamilton swung open the door of Elizabeth Taylor’s suite at the Plaza Athenee Hotel in New York to greet two guests. The actress made an entrance down the stairs and offered a buffet supper and Champagne to John Block, then the director of jewelry at Sotheby’s auction Read More
Paz’s problems started with a stiletto.
“Oh I’m sorry…” the endlessly leggy Ms. de la Huerta cooed, or rather warbled, to The Observer. We were standing with her at a Playboy party, under the High Line, and with one shoestrap broken she leaned on us, palms flung around the nape of our neck. She Read More
