Tweet It wasn’t on my bucket list but, in hindsight, it feels like it should have been: “I want to irk Gloria Steinem and cheer Miley Cyrus in one day!” Imagine telling someone that! I’m sure the response would be “Not a chance.” Despite the odds, on Saturday, I managed to achieve both of these […]

Tweet Hip-shaking cover girl Shakira is wearing my rose-quartz Venus ring in a feature in the April 2014 issue of Women’s Health. Exciting! Ah, I remember when Shakira’s video for “Whenever, Wherever” came out in 2001 — I couldn’t take my eyes off her! I’ve never seen her in concert but I did see her […]

Tweet Every year, the Vanity Fair Oscar party is the Best!Party!Ever! Last night was no exception. We walked in right behind Paula Patton, who is quite tall and looked RADIANT without that up-to-no-good Robin Thicke by her side. I couldn’t get over her perfect skin. Paula, Glenn Close, Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck all had […]

Tuxedos are getting lively! I liked the blue tuxes worn by Kevin Spacey and Jason Sudeikis, and the burgundy one worn by Michael Strahan.  E! red […]

Tweet In my paean to Elizabeth Taylor’s relationship with jewelry, written after the star’s death in 2011, I mentioned that celebrities today are sometimes paid to wear jewelry, unlike Dame Elizabeth, who owned her own diamonds. March’s Vanity Fair — the Hollywood issue — has more information on the price of red-carpet representation. Here is […]

Tweet I wrote about Eurythmics member Dave Stewart in 2007, mentioning that I’d interviewed him in the mid-’90s. During the photo shoot for the story, we — Dave, me, the crew — got thrown out of a hotel ladies’ room. This week, I stumbled across the Daily News item that ran after the bathroom “scandal.” […]
