Friday, July 18th

Before Brinkley goosed Cook, she was famously married to Piano Man Billy Joel (though when that marriage ended, Ms. Brinkley spared us the “sexy time” habits of the man she was divorcing), and tonight Mr. Joel plays Shea Stadium, which is apparently moving or ceasing to exist or something like that. (Frankly we’ve been too busy reading about Cynthia Rodriguez to care; bravo, sister girlfriend!) Mr. Joel’s Wednesday show was the fastest sellout of Shea in history (there are a lot of people on Long Island), prompting him to announce a second one for tonight! Our guess is that his comely 20-something cookbook authoress wife won’t be making the trek to Queens.
