ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS: THE MOVIE


Appropriate for their big screen debut, Edina Monsoon and Patsy Stone (Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley) are still oozing glitz and glamour, living the high life they are accustomed to: shopping, drinking and clubbing their way around London's trendiest hotspots.

But when they accidentally push Kate Moss into the River Thames at an über-fashionable launch party, Eddy and Patsy become entangled in a media storm surrounding the supermodel's untimely demise and are relentlessly pursued by the paparazzi. Fleeing penniless to the glamorous playground of the super-rich, the French Riviera, they hatch a plan to make their escape permanent and live the high life forever more.

ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS: THE MOVIE reunites Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley as the iconic Edina and Patsy along with the rest of the original cast that includes Julia Sawalha as Saffy, Jane Horrocks as Bubble and June Whitfield as Mother. The award-winning team behind the camera …

ROMANCE FOR TAYLOR SWIFT & TOM HIDDLESTON

Image
Double dates are fun, but one-on-one is where the sparks can really fly!

Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston might know a little something about this. Last night, the new couple went on a romantic dinner date to Ruth's Chris Steakhouse in downtown Nashville, and E! News has exclusive photos and details from their "intimate" night out.

Taylor, 26, and Tom, 35, "seemed very comfortable with each other," says an onlooker. Unlike the previous night of dancing at Selena Gomez's concert alongside Taylor's longtime BFF Abigail and her boyfriend, Wednesday night "was an intimate solo dinner date."

The singer and Thor star were seated in a small area off to one side of the main restaurant which seemed to be more private than the general dining area. Taylor and Tom "were by themselves on the date, but surrounded by security," says an onlooker.




At the end of the evening, The lovebirds walked out of Ruth's Chris holding hands. And, like a compl…

Manhattan Moonshine

What should you buy for the father that has everything? Treat them to a bottle of Manhattan Moonshine. A soft, approachable Whiskey with incredible complexity, Manhattan Moonshine has been carefully crafted to be the perfect Whiskey for cocktails and for the warmer months.


Unlike the darker Whiskeys that can be cloying in the warm weather even over ice, Manhattan Moonshine is barely aged in oak, meaning that its flavor is lighter and softer and is refreshing even on the hottest, most humid summer days. Because of this lighter flavor, Manhattan Moonshine can make an almost endless variety of cocktails, from Manhattans to Mint Juleps to Margaritas, meaning it can easily replace the liquor in your father's drink of choice. Pick up a bottle today and if you are lucky, maybe he will share!

Manhattan Moonshine’s unmistakable 750 ml Art Deco decanter retails at the MSRP of $39.99 and is available at selected locations throughout New York …
