A Little of the Old In and Out

In: Moon Unit Zappa, the Wierdest Celebrity Name. According to Ananova (via Sky satellite's Family Active -- can't find link):

"Moon Unit, the daughter of US rock star Frank Zappa, beat Fifi-Trixibelle, the daughter of Bob Geldof and the late Paula Yates, into second place.

"Paula has three children in the top 20. Peaches, her eldest daughter with Geldof, was seventh while Tiger Lily Heavenly Hirani, her daughter with Michael Hutchence, was 12th.

"Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow's daughter Apple was fourth, just behind Woody Allen and Mia Farrow's son Satchel.

"Next came Daisy Boo, daughter of celebrity chef Jamie Oliver and wife Jules, ahead of Rumer, (daughter) of Bruce Willis and ex-wife Demi Moore (Incidentally, "Moore" on whom, later).

"... Both Beckham children, Brooklyn and Romeo, made the list, at 14 and 20, and Moon Unit's brother Dweezil was 13th."

The rest here.

Out: And, speaking of Brooklyn -- not Beckham's, the verdict is still Out on Kos. Fashionweekdaily writes, "WHAT: KOS, a new lounge founded by Denzel Washington, Lenny Kravitz and Lenny's cousin Kevin Conner. KOS is short for Kosciuszko, the street name in Brooklyn where Lenny Kravitz and Kevin grew up."

But, Page Six wrote a while ago:

"NIGHTLIFE in Manhattan is getting even livelier. Lenny Kravitz and Denzel Washington's long-awaited members-only club, Kos, reportedly is close to opening. Kravitz's cousin, Kevin Connor, who is also the club's managing partner, confided to a PAGE SIX spy that 'Kos' is actually a racy Persian slang term. Who knew?

So, The Corsair asks -- what is Kos?

In: Mike Tyson. Via Gawker Stalker:

"I'm not sure if this is cool or lame, so I'll just let you decide. I was eating lunch with a friend at Katz's Deli on Sunday around 1:30, when who should come over and sit at the table right next to us but Mike Tyson. He's just as scary in person, even with that stupid tattoo on his face. He was with 4 or 5 other guys, who were all very nice to the wait staff and tourists who came over for pictures and autographs. I offered my friend $100 to sing 'I Think I Can Beat Mike Tyson' to him, but unfortunately he was too scared."

The Corsair would actually take that bet in light of that beat down at the hands of journeyman Danny Williams.

Later on:

"... in front of a bodega near Marquee, 2:30 a.m. Mike Tyson, standing on the sidewalk with bodyguards in front of his limo. He was clearly shitfaced and was stuffing potato chips into his tatooed face. It's only a camera phone shot without a flash at night, but I did get a photo."

Out: Middle Aged Welsh Nudists. According to the 3AM Girls:

"Demi Moore could be in for a shock when she shoots beach scenes for her new flick Half Light.The star is filming in North Wales not far from Llanddwyn Sands, a beach that's popular with middle-aged nudists. Nice.

"Dem, who's still dating toyboy Ashton Kutcher, sees the film as her comeback. Our mole confides: 'She wants everything to be perfect and naked people wandering around in the background won't go down well.'"

Oh, joy, just what we need: Wee Dangly Welsh bits flapping in an offshore Outer Hebrides breeze obstructing our view of milfy milf, Demi Moore.

And something tells me -- call it a hunch -- that these people don't look like The Corsair's other favorite Welsh dish, Catherine Zeta Jones.

In: Tom Ford. In an interview with Fashionweekdaily:

"Fashionweekdaily: Will he and (his companion, Richard Buckley, director of Vogue Hommes) marry?

"Tom Ford: We have spoken countless times of this sacred right that America will be forced to give us sooner or later. If I were to die suddenly, my companion would not have the right by law to anything that we have built together and this is an intolerable discrimination.�
