A Little of the Old In and Out

In: Miuccia Prada.When not Baptizing boats in Valencia, Miuccia Prada -- a favorite among Conde Nasties -- parties with 1500 of her nearest and dearest friends. From Fashionweekdaily:

"Nearly three years after Miuccia Prada hosted a grand party at her SoHo Epicenter locale�celebrating her then partnership with jeweler Fred Leighton�the revolutionary designer continues to prove that no one can quite pack �em in like she can.

"... Holding court on the wooden steps on the massive wave stage, Miuccia enjoyed a birds-eye view of the sweeping scene. With a seemingly never-ending supply of buffet counters bearing shrimp cocktail, raw oysters, and enough alcohol to supply Manhattan until 2010 (including a delicious Ginger Cooler), Andr� Balazs (with daughter Alessandra in tow), Amy Sacco, Amy Wesson, Grace Hightower, Iman, Richard Gere and Carey Lowell, Jane Mayle, Lindsay Lohan, Anna Wintour, Glenda Bailey, Damon Dash and Rachel Roy, Kelly Klein, Jeff Koons, Matthew Modine, and Jacquetta Wheeler all flocked downtown for a first look at the more than 100 different skirts from the last 17 years on display, and, as Dash put it so matter of factly, 'to give Miuccia props.'"

Indeed. More here.

Out: Lindsay Lohan. We were somewhat confounded at the rationale behind having Lindsay Lohan appear for a third time on SNL. Isn't that supposed to be reserved for near-legends? Granted, the drastic weight differential between her first and second visits made for some riveting viewing, but, now, really. (Exaggerated cough suggesting feigned detachment) According to MedialIfeMagazine:

"Lindsay Lohan is still hot stuff in the tabloids, but her popularity as a TV guest seems to have cooled right along with her flagging movie career.

"With Lohan as host of 'Saturday Night Live' over the weekend, her third such stint in two years, the show averaged just a 5.1 metered-market household rating. That�s down 18 percent from a 6.2 for Lohan�s last appearance on the show, when she hosted last year�s season-ender in May.

"It�s also well below the averages posted by less-publicized hosts such as Jack Black, whose appearance with Neil Young in December averaged a 6.1, and Steve Martin, whose 14th hosting gig in February averaged a 7.0."

Alos Out: James Blunt. Jesus, we loathe this shmaltzy ratbastard. And he keeps on practcing his wanton ratbastardy, inmolested. (The Corsair sparks a Cohiba Esplendido) We loathe him on the perfectly justifiable logic of jealousy, that great motivator of the blogiverse. On popbitch tday, the lead quote is, "'It didn't get me the girl back but it did get
me laid.' - James Blunt, on You're Beautiful." MotherFuck--! This, coming after his public dumping over, in part, his cheating on his ex with the comely Tara Parker-Tomkinson and, quite possibly, tsunami survivor Petra Nemcova.
