Michelle Obama has a delightfully chic new coif, which has the potential to gain as much of a following as her biceps. Alexandra Richards thought no one would notice when she got a pedicure while deejaying at Surf Lodge over the weekend, but Sean Avery did. Sporting ripped jeans and a baseball cap, Ruth Madoff held up the La Guardia Airport security line en route to visit Bernie in North Carolina. Condoleeza Rice invited Rob Lowe to a weekend getaway at her house in Northern California. And it looks like J.Lo’s going to be hitting up Florida more often: Hubbie Marc Anthony just signed on to be a part owner of the Miami Dolphins. Andre Balazs spent the weekend canoodling in Miami with Kelly Killoren Bensimon.
Here’s a shocker: Anna Wintour is being “completely controlling” regarding publicity for The September Issue, and even though she’s attending the film’s New York City premiere, she’s skipping out on its Hamptons debut. Former Merrill Lynch CEO David Komansky turned a few heads when he power-breakfasted at the Regency with the firm’s former Global Wealth Management group head, venture capitalist Kenneth Langone, and municipal-bond guru Alexandra Lebenthal, creating buzz that he’s taking over UBS’s Wealth Management division. And speaking of advantageous career moves, Megan Fox thinks she’s too cool to be the next Bond girl, so she turned down the role. Sienna Miller called an Australian radio host a douchebag when he asked about her on-and-off relationship with Balthazar Getty. Then she told him to “piss off.” And the Brits are buzzing that Michael Jackson has a 25-year-old secret love child (who’s now supposedly getting a DNA test) and that his three other kids are actually his surgeon’s, Dr. Arnold Klein.
While Katie Lee Joel rebounds from Billy via her upcoming West Village burger joint, he’s dating Alex Donnelley, of The Young and The Restless. Matt Damon dined at Da Silvano, and Missy Elliott had some brunch-time Cristal at the Gansevoort. Demi Moore, Jennifer Aniston, and Nicole Kidman’s psychic, Laura Day, is newly single and on the prowl. Nicolas Sarkozy and Carla Bruni spend more than $1,080 per day on flowers for the Elysée Palace. Nicolas Cage and Jerry Bruckheimer had befriended a homeless guy who often stopped by the set of The Sorcerer’s Apprentice. They all hung out outside the film’s wrap party at Greenhouse. Contrary to the Post’s report yesterday, Jennifer Love Hewitt is not officially engaged.
Kiefer Sutherland and his girlfriend had an intense make-out session on the Hudson River Park’s lawn while one breastfeeding mother squealed, “Go Kiefer!” Britney Gastineau says she was just joking when she announced in Bruno that Jamie Lynn Spears should have had an abortion. Gloria Vanderbilt celebrated her undoubtedly too-graphic novel, Obsession: An Erotic Tale, at the Diane von Furstenberg store. And Robert Pattinson checked out some brunette at the East Village’s Lil’ Frankie’s. We hate her.
