A Little of the Old In and Out
In: The La.com blog has this little chestnut:
"That sexy, offbeat couple that hooked up on a cult-y TV show have been joining fellow Angelinos in that favorite weekend sport: hitting open houses. Friends and star-watchers in the know have interpreted this extracurricular behavior as a sign that a sometimes bouncy relationship may be moving toward the settling-down stage, to be followed by the raising of pretty, spoiled, therapy-bound rugrats. But that's definitely not the whole enchilada. These quirky lovebirds are just trying to spice up their relationship--they're such a pair of thrill-junkies, they've become addicted to pulling stunts like having quick sex in out-of-the-way rooms, guest houses and even attics of homes for sale, all the while fearing/hoping they will get busted. And recently, they got their wish. More than a few high-end realtors and home sellers are tricking out their prized properties with security cameras, in hopes of catching thieves and scammers who have been hitting open houses lately. But when our two lovebirds got caught on camera doing some oral gymnastics in an upstairs children�?s bathroom, they were asked by the real estate agents to vacate the premises pronto. How long before that tape turns up on the web?"
Anyone wanna guess? The board is saying The OC power couple Adam Brody and Rachel Bilson, who, as it happens (The Corsair smiles), have very publicly been shopping for houses. Just how public is what Enquiring minds want to know.
Out: Vice President Hillary? Matt Drudge is so bad on accuracy, so wide of the mark in execution, and so often off in pitch, that he once, rather famously, predicted that Disney was going to buy Apple Computer (The Corsair softly chuckles). And there's no accounting for the scurrilous Kerry intern piece he hustled. Well, now he does himself one better, predicting that Hillary Clinton -- the Senator from a state he already has in the bag -- will be his Veep running mate:
"Official Washington and the entire press corps will be rocked when Hillary Rodham Clinton is picked as Kerry's VP and a massive love fest will begin!
"So predicts a top Washington insider, who spoke to the DRUDGE REPORT on condition he not be named.
"'All the signs point in her direction,' said the insider, one of the most influential and well-placed in the nation's capital. 'It is the solution to every Kerry problem.'
"'There are three issues that this campaign will be decided on-- national security, health care, and the economy, not necessarily in that order.'
"'Kerry believes that no one is better on national security than he is, he served in Vietnam after all, so he has that covered and the suggestion that he needs to strengthen the ticket with someone who has national security credentials is dismissed as foolish.'"
In: NY Post cutie Elisa Lipsky-Karasz's new gossip column iswonderful. Herr most recent column let us know that Paul Burrell, the man P Diddy wants to replace Farnsworth Bentley, Diana's rock, wore an $18,000 diamond earring that shocked the WASPs. And that Karen O is dating Spike Jonze, "meanwhile she's still shacking up with her former boyfriend, rocker Angus Andrew." But the best scoop was this one:
"Al Sharpton's wife, Kathy, was caught hoarding the free shoes from the storage closet at Kimora Lee Simmons' Diva shoe party. 'But I need shoes for my babies!' she told the shocked staff when they accosted her."
Out: Publicists: Do not lie to Page Six, people. They will catch you and make a Fourth of Julybarbecuee out of your lying ass. For the past two days and running the Sixers have been humiliating smarmy, lyingpublicistss; a veritable Bonfire of the Vanities has been going on. Today, Damon Dash's publicist, Amanda Silverman of PMK/HBH got a beating. And yesterday, Barbara Hutson, of the ironically titled p.r. company Truth Be Told Inc., was busted on lying. Just tell the truth when the Sixers come calling.
In: Christian Slater. He's like the newBritanyy Murphy, his antics are so crazy. According to that significant cultural artifact The National Enquirer, Slater visited a, uhm, femme de la nuit:
"... the young woman says at first she didn't recognize the actor when he walked into the London brothel at 3 a.m.
"He was wearing scruffy jeans and a crumpled shirt.
"It was only after the Hollywood hunk picked her out that, she said, a security guy told her who her famous 'john' was. Soon they were in his fourth-floor suite at one of London's fanciest hotels, she claims.
"Right off the bat, Slater told her that he is married to TV producer Ryan Haddon and has two kids, she says.
"'He came across as really nice' said the woman, who may be the world's most starstruck prostitute.
"'I was puzzled when he told me about his family, but I guess he was just being honest. He was very experienced and knew exactly what to do.'"
Out: Naomi Campbell brings out the beast in men (The Corsair howls at the moon). According to British Vogue, things got rather dodgy in the mysterious land of Sardinia:
"NAOMI CAMPBELL had to be rescued by police yesterday when a crowd of about 4,000 men overwhelmed security guards as she filmed her latest ad on a beach in Sardinia. Desperate to catch a glimpse of the British supermodel in her bikini, the crowd ignored the metal barriers which had been erected around the Cala Cipolla beach, near Cagliari, for the filming of a new ad for TIM mobile phone operators. According to Italian news agency Ansa, the sight of a scantily-clad Naomi, carrying a phone and flanked by an enormous black dog, was too much for her Italian fans to ignore."
