In the month or so since the divorce, Perelman has announced several major business deals, including the $750 million acquisition of the film-processing firm Deluxe films. A friend of Perelman’s says he’s not dating (“He just got divorced; give him time to heal”), but “Page Six” has linked him to a former hedge-fund marketing executive named Rachel Rosen, who is said to resemble a young Ellen Barkin, and to former model turned magazine editor Kelly Killoren Bensimon, whom “Page Six” dubbed “younger and hotter” than Barkin.
For the next phase of her Hollywood career, Barkin is trying to produce her first film, The Easter Parade, a remake of one of her favorite books, the 1976 Richard Yates novel of the same name. The story is about two sisters. It spans some 40 years and starts with the following line: “Neither of the Grimes sisters would have a happy life, and looking back it always seemed the trouble began with their parents’ divorce.”
