Melissa McCarthy is a whole new person in her upcoming movie Can You Ever Forgive Me? and it might be the best role she’s ever had. She plays a real person in this true story – a curmudgeonly failed New York writer named Lee Israel who became a literary forger out of financial necessity. (Her cat needed expensive surgery.) She’s also an alcoholic with a dour personality and no interest in fashion. But she’s clever, and starts forging amusing letters, supposedly written by Oscar Wilde, Dorothy Parker, and other notables – they sell to collectors for a high price. Her adventures and eccentric friend played by Richard E Grant make for a smart and amusing comedy/drama.

Lady Gaga can take a look – any look- and do it BIGGER and better than anyone else! And usually, FUNNIER. It looks like Gaga stole one of David Byrne’s BIG SUITS from the raging 80’s – note the huge shoulders. Funny that Gaga chooses to dress rather like a man for the 25th Annual Elle Women in Hollywood Celebration. SHE certainly has a lot to celebrate – thanks to A Star is Born, she is now officially an ACTRESS, and probably reading a lot of scripts…
If you had a not-so-perfect childhood (isn’t that MOST people?) the movie Wildlife will bring you back to some very uncomfortable experiences. It’s set in 1960 and pretty housewife Carey Mulligan thinks she’s already over the hill at 34. She and Jake Gyllenhaal’s character have a 14 year old son who watches all their drama unfold, much like YOU did at home. Jake can’t hold down a job and he’s too “proud” to take one beneath him, so he volunteered to fight wild fires threatening his small Montana town, leaving his wife and son to fend for themselves. Lacking job experience, Carey’s practical housewife does what she figures she has to do – she gets a job teaching swimming and starts flirting with a wealthy single older man. The son is tormented by his parents’ actions and you can’t help but identify with him. It’s a wonderful script, beautifully directed by Paul Dano – a must-see if you appreciate sensitive films.

Wow – you ‘ve got to give some credit to the adorable I Dream of Jeannie star Barbara Eden – she’s 87 now and still active in show business. Barbara turned up in Berlin at some event called Vivid Grand Show with her usual enthusiasm. Her Jeannie series was only on TV from 1965 to 1970 but it made her one of the most loved TV actresses – and a gay icon…
Talk about “born lucky.” Elizabeth Hurley’s lookalike son Damian is only 16 years old and he already has a modeling contract and has appeared on The Royals TV series. Businessman/playboy Steve Bing, whose family fortune is estimated to be 600 million, is Damian’s father, and Bing was NOT happy about it. After dating Elizabeth on and off for 18 months, she told him she was pregnant and he demanded a DNA test. After the test proved that Bing IS the father, Liz was so insulted that she refused to take any child support from Bing and she demanded full custody. Damian has no relationship with his father, but Bing set up a trust and Damian will be a multimillionaire when he turns 18!
Tom Holland is suited up in his new Spider-Man costume while filming a scene in New York with his on-camera love interest, Zendaya. They’re just wrapping up the last scenes for Spider-Man: Far From Home. In some scenes it’s very apparent that 5’ 10” Zendaya is quite a bit taller than her leading man – especially when he’s rescuing her from one thing or another. Height is no problem in real life – it’s entirely possible that Zendaya and Tom are a couple, but their lips are sealed.
Always one of our favorite actresses, Mira Sorvino was one of the early and brave women who accused Harvey Weinstein of sexual improprieties. Mira won a Best Supporting Oscar for her ditzy character in Woody Allen’s Mighty Aphrodite, but few people realize she is actually very intelligent and educated. She graduated with honors from Harvard and has a degree in East Asian studies. We were so happy for her and Ashley Judd when Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson came out and admitted that Weinstein had said the actresses were “a nightmare to work with” and advised him not to hire them, thus blacklisting them and derailing their careers. Happy ending: While Mira’s acting career waned, she married her dream man and had four children, and now she’s back at work.
Actually, the budding friendship of Kourtney Kardashian and Grown-ish actor Luka Sabbat is a match in PUBLICITY heaven. (Luka was also a Yeezy model.) Kourtney loves being photographed with handsome young men and Luka just plain wants to become famous. Everybody knows that the best (and maybe easiest) way to become famous FAST is to date a Kardashian! And a 19 years OLDER woman is even better! Luka is a young fashion influencer who really wants to be noticed, so he and Kourtney turned up at the Virgil Abloh fashion party at the Gagosian Gallery in Beverly Hills.
Above, Luka and Kourtney slip out the back door at the gallery.
Richard Marx and Daisy Fuentes have been married for three years and they’re still affectionate like newlyweds. Richard has been trying to sell the lakeside 30,000 sq ft mansion near Chicago that he shared with his first wife Cynthia Rhodes – they divorced four years ago and the house has been on the market since then. He originally asked 18 million for it but gradually the price has gone down to 9 million. We’re thinking the reason is: location. It’s in Lake Bluff, Illinois, and the lake view is nice, BUT that ice cold wind blowing off the lake makes winters bitter and miserable. Richard and Daisy now live in Los Angeles and today they were seen happily holding hands on their way to the Med Men cannabis dispensary in West Hollywood.

Andrew Dice Clay must cringe every day when he hears the news because there’s always another word or reference he’s got to leave OUT of his stand-up act. In fact, we wonder if he still HAS a standup act because his early act would be entirely unacceptable today. We saw him at the Hollywood Bowl around fifteen years ago and the Diceman character insulted women and gay people in dozens of different ways. The guys in the audience loved his horrifying and filthy act – they swilled beer and cheered every diss. It got so rowdy and obnoxious that we chose to leave. Since belittling women and gays has fallen out of favor, we suggest that Andrew stick to acting!
