The war between the city’s tabloids warmed up last night when Confidential, the Daily News‘s gossip page, posted an item refuting “new stories making the rounds” that ex-Gov. Eliot Spitzer and his political operative girlfriend got frisky in a public hot tub on their recent trip to Jamaica.
Later in the night, the Post posted today’s front-page story alleging that Mr. Spitzer sucked on the toes of a topless Lis Smith in front of children at the resort where they stayed over the weekend.

The first time The Observer met Mandy Stadtmiller at her Chelsea studio, the contents of her trash were strewn all over the floor. While Ms. Stadtmiller had been at a friend’s art opening, Samsung, her rescued pit bull, had thwarted his owner’s quickie attempt to clean up. Before we could examine the contents of the mess, Ms. Stadtmiller ushered us into the hallway to wait while she located a trash bag in a cabinet next to a pair of high heels and picked up the refuse.
Inside, her crystal collection sat on a shelf above a bin of bras. A couple of stuffed animals, inspirational sayings and books with titles like Use Your Body to Heal Your Mind decorated the room.

Ashley Dupre, Eliot Spitzer’s high-paid call girl-cum-New York Post love advice columnist (hey, we’re living in the era of MisAdvised, so we’re barely judging) announced to–where else?– Page Six today that she’s Jimmy Choo backless flats and pregnant. And no, it’s not the former governor’s, so let’s just get that right out of the way.
Poor Alec Baldwin! Not only is the recent Vanity Fair cover guy better known for his hot head than for his new, cool marriage to Hilaria Thomas or his role on 30 Rock, but it turns out most of the country refuses to accept Mr. Baldwin as the last word on their lord and savior as well!
xoJane.com beauty writer Cat Marnell has left Jane Pratt’s site after refusing to kick her extremely well documented drug habit. The former Lucky beauty editor recently returned from rehab, as mandated by xoJane.com parent company SAY Media, but sources told The New York Post she was still high all the time.
Remember how Alec Baldwin was supposed to elope with yoga instructor fiancee Hilaria Thomas after the Cannes Film Festival? Whatever happened with that?
Well, the date may finally be set on the New York ceremony, and according to new gossip, it sounds less like an elopement and more like a full-blown Hollywood wedding. Oh, that wily Alec.
