In the long tradition of the strong friendship between Britain and the U.S., Park Avenue's Martin and Jean Shafiroff hosted a cocktail party for The Honorable Harry Herbert of Highclere Castle recently.


For the cognoscenti, almost the whole world knows that Highclere is better known as DOWNTON ABBEY of the famed TV series. Harry, second of three children of the 7th Earl of Carnarvon, was on a flying visit to tell the Yanks about his Highclere Racing Stud. Oh yes, the reason to mention Harry being second son means, of course, in England where primogeniture rules on inheritance, his older brother is …

ROBERT DAVI'S 'NEW YORK CITY CHRISTMAS'

Image
Robert Davi New York City Christmas


Robert Davi has one of those faces — constantly recognized but not always placed in context. He’s been seen in well over 100 films and TV shows, most often as a bad guy (Jake Fratelli in The Goonies, Bond villain Franz Sanchez in Licence to Kill, mob associate Leonard Marks in The Iceman, among so many others). He was FBI agent Bailey Malone in the successful TV series Profiler that ran on NBC from the 1996 through 2000 seasons. In addition, Davi is a trained and highly skilled singer. And the contrast between his acting choices and music is most interesting.



He describes his Long Island childhood: “I grew up in an Italian-Catholic home. We worshiped two people. The Pope and Frank Sinatra. Not necessarily in that order.” His first movie role was in 1977‘s Contract On Cherry Street, Sinatra’s first made-for-television movie and it was Frank Sinatra who cast him. Since then, he's work with most of our top directors and actors and is constantly busy.…

PEREZ HILTON COMES CLEAN ABOUT LADY GAGA

Perez Hilton On Wendy Williams



Celebrity gossip columnist, Perez Hilton, today shot back at Lady Gaga's recent comments in a Howard Stern interview about their falling out, telling Wendy Williams that his former friend has serious substance abuse issues, uses people and that there's no chance of a reconciliation between them.


"She said in an interview recently that I was a 'fake friend'. Now if you know anything, or one thing about Perez Hilton, I think, is that I am not fake and I keep it real. And, I viewed her as an IRL friend - in real life friend. I viewed her as more than just a friend. I jokingly nicknamed her 'my wifey'. To me she was that kind of friend."


"She hasn't really gone in depth about her issues. She said recently, over the last couple of years, she's had issues with drugs and alcohol. When we were filming that [interview] she got obliterated drunk, amongst other things." After they turned the cameras off while filming…

She has two booming fashion lines, best-selling books, and a destination website under her belt. In her interview with Cosmo, Conrad dishes on all of this and more.



On her engagement to fiance, musician and law student William Tell: “I had no idea it was coming. I thought he would wait until he finished law school.”


On her engagement ring: “He didn’t even ask my friends, which was a bold move. He said, ‘I know you, and I know what you like.’ And I love it. It’s perfect.”


Cosmo: You’re engaged! What would you say to readers who feel pressure to get that ring?


LC: “You have the rest of your life to be married. Enjoy falling in love. When girls get caught up in the timeline, it becomes more about the wedding than the marriage. You should be with someone with whom you could elope this weekend and be…

KEVIN KLINE'S 'RHAPSODY UNITED AIRLINES' DEBUT

Kevin Kline


Kevin Kline has two bad habits. Making boring movies is not one of them.


The debut issue of Rhapsody, United Airlines’ brand new lifestyle and literary magazine for its premium-cabin passengers, features a rare, in-depth profile of the legendary actor. Kline speaks candidly about smoking, gambling, and his favorite and not-so-favorite roles. Below are select quotes from the piece:


On his two major vices: “You know, I smoke cigarettes occasionally. And I curse sometimes, use bad words.”


On his worst films: “Once or twice I’ve seen the movies and thought, ‘This was exactly what I thought it would be when we made it. This is crap. I knew it was crap.’”


On retirement: “A lot of people retire too early. They’re forced to retire or they decide to retire. But unless they have really vital things that they love to do, it’s terrible.”


On watching The Big Chill for the first time: “When they screened it for me and Glenn [Close], I just remember we thought, ‘It’s a great movie to dance to.…

LADY GAGA TO CLOSE NEW YORK'S ROSELAND

**** THE GLORIOUS CORNER

Lady Gaga



Gaga at Roseland --- Somehow it’s fitting that Artpop-babe Lady Gaga will play the final performances at NYC’s Roseland: When the famed Ballroom shuts its doors this April, it will certainly go out in style. Gaga will close out the venue with a string of four concerts -- on March 28, 30, 31 and April 2 -- it was announced last week.


The 3,500-seat theater is a big undersell for Gaga, as fans will get to see the New York native in much smaller confines than normal. Members of the her fan community LittleMonsters.com will have the first crack at presale tickets; randomly selected members will receive invitations and codes to purchase tickets this Thursday. Again, what a tragedy for this fabled venue; but, at least it will exit with a scream, rather than a whimper.
