Miley Cyrus First Wrecking Ball Comments; Defends Video (listen!)

Will Robert Pattinson Film Explore James Dean’s Secret Gay Life?

Robert Pattinson’s new movie about the relationship between ’50s film icon James Dean and celebrity photographer Dennis Stock would be remiss if it didn’t explore Dean’s homosexuality. But so far no word on whether that topic will be included. Dean personally kept his sexuality clouded during his short Hollywood career. He even had a high profile romance with actress Pier Angeli. But privately, especially before he became famous, Dean was linked to affairs with a number of men...

Jon Stewart Returns, Learns Carlos Danger Running for Mayor

Jon Stewart was back in the anchor chair at Comedy Central, after a summer-long stint in the Middle East for a film project. He required a little cultural re-assimilation before catching up on the news. Yes, Carlos Danger really is running for New York City Mayor. John Oliver, who subbed for Stewart while he was off directing the Iranian political feature, “Rosewater,” had his hands full bringing Jon up to speed. First, though, he had to ween Stewart, who had gone native, of his Middle Eastern mannerisms....

Michael Douglas: Catherine Zeta-Jones Separation Overblown

Michael Douglas refuted reports that his recent “time off” from wife Catherine Zeta-Jones was a prelude to a divorce. He told reporters in Germany today (Sept. 2) that they are “fine” and implied no permanent split is imminent. The news threw more than one tabloid for a spine. Most reports claimed the marriage was all but over. The split, so the story went, was symptomatic of long-simmering problems in the marriage exacerbated by Douglas’s recent bout with cancer, Zeta-Jones continuing problems with a bi-polar disorder and differences over Douglas’s incarcerated son, Cameron....

Steve Martin Has a Wild and Crazy Deal for You on St. Bart’s Villa

Comedian Steve Martin has had a not so funny time trying to sell his sprawling Caribbean villa on St. Barts, and island frequented by the rich and famous. It’s on the market for a bargain price $11.4 million, but he’s also renting to all comers for fairly reasonable price, relatively speaking of course. The home, known as Villa Au Soleil, is situated on a hilltop overlooking St. Jean Bay in the town of Lurin, St. Barthelemy. It’s a picture-postcard setting. Martin bought the property at the height of the real estate market in 2008,...

Horrific New York City Cab Crash Raises Safety Questions (video)

A horrific crash involving a New York City cab that injured a bicyclist and severed a pedestrian’s foot raises fresh questions about the competence and training of drivers behind one of the most ubiquitous vehicles on Manhattan streets. I know. I was involved in more than one incident involving a taxi cab as an avid bicyclist and as a motorist, including a hit-and-run accident. A taxi-cab driver ran a stop sign and sideswiped my car, then brazenly drove off when he saw me getting out of my car. Most New Yorkers have their own horror stories, tell them below in the comment section. ...

Simon Cowell, Lauren Silverman Scandal Splits Exclusive Hamptons

Simon Cowell’s torrid sex scandal with Lauren Silverman has turned the normally publicity shy Hamptons on its ear. Not since the 2008 divorce of Christie Brinkley and Peter Cook has the exclusive playground of the rich been so divided. True Hamptonites hate publicity and even the whiff of scandal. But the Cowell-Silverman sexcapade has blown the lid off the tony beach community. “It’s really beyond the pale,” said one Hamptons resident who asked not to be named. “Can you believe they really carried on like that?”...

How Simon Cowell Got Played by NY Socialite Lauren Silverman

Simon Cowell has it all a booming career, substantial wealth, and at 53, he’s holding up fairly well in the looks department. But wily socialite Lauren Silverman played him like an “American Idol” wannabe. The only question is, why did he fall for it. Silverman’s pursuit of Cowell is no surprise. It happens every day in New York City’s wealthy enclave. Polished women sharpen their stilettos and prowl for wealthy older men in bars, clubs, posh hotels and the tony Hamptons. Like NBA groupies, the goal is to get pregnant and cash in on child support, which can range from $20,000 to $50,000 a month depending on the individual....

Anthony Weiner’s Megalomania Is So Uncool; Enough Already

Anthony Weiner’s sex scandal has provided some dicey diversion during an uneventful New York City summer, keeping gossip mills churning from Hamptons’ beaches to Katz’s deli. But really, enough is enough. Megalomania is so uncool. The pol doesn’t know the meaning of the word “quit.” Under different circumstances that might be a good thing. But not when it stems from a psychopathological disorder....
