Media-Whore D'Oeuvres



"The Naval Update Map shows the approximate current locations of U.S. Carrier Strike Groups and Amphibious Ready Groups, based on available open-source information. No classified or operationally sensitive information is included in this weekly update. CSGs and ARGs are the keys to U.S. dominance of the world's oceans. A CSG is centered on an aircraft carrier, which projects U.S. naval and air power and supports a Carrier Air Wing, or CVW. The CSG includes significant offensive strike capability. An ARG is centered on three amphibious warfare ships, with a Marine Expeditionary Unit embarked. An MEU is built around a heavily reinforced and mobile battalion of Marines." (STRATFOR)


"Meanwhile down at Michael’s it was back-to-back, and belly up to table. Super-agent Boaty Boatwright was at Table One with Christine Lahti. Micky Ateyeh was right next door with Reem Acra, the brilliant fashion designer. And next to her Mayor-a-Michael’s Joe A was lunching with David Zinczenko who’s off and running with his new media firm Galvanized Brands. Across from them, Da Boyz, Imber, Della Femina, Kramer, Bergman and Greenfield; Peter Solomon with Rich Rail; Diane Clehane with Liz Vaccariello of Readers Digest; Bob Friedman with Michael Gross who has just completed his next book about -- 15 Central Park West, due out next March; Jimmy Finkelstein with George Green; Chris Meigher of Quest with real estate exec Howard Lorber; Debra Shriver with Barbaralee Diamonstein-Spielvogel, Stan Shuman of Allen & Company; Jack Kliger of TV Guide; Carol Mack with Annette Tapert; Anne Fulenwider, the new Editor-in-Chief of Marie Claire; Wednesday Martin with Kelly Klein; Ed Herlihy Esq, of Wachtell Lipton."

"After winning one of the biggest settlements of all time in her child-support battle with Fran├žois-Henri Pinault, supermodel Linda Evangelista doesn’t need to rely on her Hard Rock billionaire boyfriend Peter Morton. The pair have split up, sources exclusively tell Page Six. Morton stuck by Evangelista through her bitterly contested child-custody battle with billionaire baby daddy Pinault, which was settled in May 2012. Details of Evangelista’s settlement with French luxury brand mogul Pinault — now the husband of Salma Hayek — were not released, but a source close to the model said that she wound up getting nearly $50,000 per month in child support from Pinault for their son, Augustin James. Evangelista had reportedly demanded $46,000 per month to cover expenses including nannies, chauffeurs and bodyguards. When Morton and Evangelista began dating in 2006, she was pregnant with Pinault’s child — but the father’s identity remained a mystery until it was revealed by Page Six and when Evangelista later took Pinault to court, in 2011. Morton and Evangelista — famous for coining the phrase 'We don’t wake up for less than $10,000 a day' — split once before, in 2010, after a string of arguments, and patched things up months later. Whispers of the latest rift with Morton came at the same time Evangelista attended the CFDA Awards this week as a presenter, and walked the carpet solo. She’s also been seen out and about without Morton in New York." (NYPost)


"Time’s latest issue features one hell of a cover. The illustration was created by the Chinese dissident/political activist/artist, Ai Weiwei. To produce the absolutely stunning art, Ai used traditional Chinese paper cutting. 'The image represents Ai’s acknowledgment of the country’s centrality in the world, while at the same time challenging China’s leaders to make the future a freer and more democratic one,' wrote Rick Stengel, Time’s managing editor."
