Joel Sherman and Carl Banks

With a local teamster at the wheel, Brooke Shields made a beeline from the Brooklyn set of her new TV series Lipstick Jungle to hit the opening of the new Nat Sherman Cigar emporium on East 42nd Street. No the sexy mom of two hasn’t taken up puffing a stogie.The Shermans are old family friends – she and Nat Sherman’s daughter went to the tony Dwight School together and have remained best friends since. The glowing Brooke had nothing but praise for her teamster driver and working in New York again.Lipstick Jungle is based on another hit novel by Sex and the City author Candace Bushnell, While Sex and the City followed the exploits of four single women looking for love in New York, Lipstick Jungle tracks three powerful career women who are willing to do almost anything for success in the business world: Wendy Healy (Brooke Shields), president of Parador Pictures, Victory Ford (Lindsay Price), a high profile fashion designer, and Nico Reilly (Kim Raver), editor-in-chief of a hot selling fashion magazine named Bonfire Magazine. Their thirst for achievement is sure to get them where they want to go--but at what personal cost? Unlike the Sex and.the City gals, folks on set say Brooke, Kim and Lindsay get along great!
