It’s a Kard-astrophe! Only 72 days after reality entertainment star Kim Kardashian and her husband Brooklyn Nets (if that is their real name) NBA star Kris Humphries tied the knot, the duo is now filing for divorce.

Vince Rizzo (Andy García) is a corrections officer and a father of two (three, if you count his long-lost, ex-con son, played by Steven Strait) who secretly runs off to acting Read More
It’s been an “unusually active but brutal” season on Broadway, Bloomberg reports.
Of the fall’s many anticipated productions, only A Steady Rain (with Hugh Jackman and Daniel Craig), appears to have made much money. Among the casualties: the extensively analyzed Simon revival, and at least half of the Read More
Considering A Steady Rain, the new drama about two Chicago cops facing excessive precipitation and other forms of dissolution, we must pause first to acknowledge its genius. That is not to say that this, the New York debut of playwright Kevin Huff, which opened last night at the Geral Schoenfeld Theatre, is a brilliant play. Read More
Chef John DeLucie has been serving celebrities at Graydon Carter‘s exclusive Waverly Inn since November 2006. Lately, he’s been soaking up the spotlight himself.
