    Jessica Simpson Has the Same Crummy Friends As the Rest of UsJessica Simpson got totally pissed at Eva Longoria for hanging out with her ex John Mayer at GoldBar. MSNBC pundit Lawrence O’Donnell, who plays a lawyer on Big Love, bashed Mormonism on The McLaughlin Group on Sunday. Richard Belzer says he’s “hurt” his role on Law & Order: SVU has been cut back. PETA has dubbed the Olsen twins the “Trollsen Twins” because of their affinity for fur. Among the items in J.Lo’s gift registry for her twins are a Balmoral enameled black carriage for a $3,495 and a $289 suede play mat.

    Terence Koh, the ‘Naomi Campbell of the Art World,’ to RetireArtist Terence Koh, apparently unimpressed by the contemporary-ness of Art Basel this year, momentarily found a voice on the Times Website today. In an interview on their Moment blog, writer Alex Hawgood asked the lurid superstar whether the Miami festival is more about the art or the parties. Koh explained, “Art is a party. Why bother otherwise?” “I am the hostess with the mostest,” he added, describing a launch party for Daddy magazine that he threw at a strip joint. “We had three grand in one-dollar bills that we handed to our friends to give to the dancers. I didn’t remember anything the next day except for the stains.” Oh, Terry, still up to the same high jinks. Koh, who made his beginnings with the Website asianpunkboy.com and after four years of meteoric success now sells works all over the world, says he made more “filthy money” this year than last. Which was sure to assuage at least some of the chafing feeling left by the festival (which he described on his Website thusly: “MIAMI SUCKS LIKE A COCK IN AN ASS THAT HAS BEEN TURNED INSIDE OUT”), but may not be enough. Terence, who described himself to the Times as “the Naomi Campbell of the art world,” said that his post-Miami plans include “retiring from art.” Not that we believe him, but still. For a moment we were worried about where we were going to get our fix of gold-plated poop next year. Basel Player: Terence Koh [NYT] Related: Is Terence Koh’s Sperm Worth $100,000?

    Art Basel Miami: Brought to You by These SponsorsIn one sense, it’s a very good time to be an artist. There’s a lot of money out there, collector and corporate, to fund new work. Companies are using art to get publicity for their business ventures; the overwhelming memory of Art Basel 07 is one of corporate logos, hard-sell pitches and luxury branding.

    In Miami, Fashion Continues to Invade Art WorldSince half of creative New York has moved down to Miami this week for Art Basel, we sent reporter Alexandra Peers down with them to peek at the art, beauty, and elitism on the beach. She’s been filing reports to New York’s Vulture blog, but she sent us this dispatch for our very own. The e-mail buzzes on my BlackBerry: “We would love to have you come by to pick up something — for the Miami dinner celebrating the Emilio Pucci house of design.” What? Sorry, fashionistas, snobby art-worlders don’t borrow clothes. My outrage is first personal — has someone dished my Bloomie’s little black dress? — then, political. It sounds Fascist.

    Steve Tisch, Billionaire Baller?Newly divorced billionaire and New York Giants co-owner Steve Tisch might be dating women on both coasts. Martha Stewart created a special Christmas tree for Sirius Radio’s office, complete with Howard Stern cookie ornaments. Former NYSE head Dick Grasso left CNBC’s Charles Gasparino a creepy “merry Christmas” message on his answering machine, despite the fact that Gasparino’s new book takes Grasso to task for the $190 million kiss-off he took after leaving the Exchange. John Mayer has had a crush on Ricki Lake for two years (Ed. note: WTF?!), and actually got her digits at the wonderfully successful Sunshine Sachs Christmas party. Lance Armstrong picked up the tab for dinner with former flame Sheryl Crow. Jorge Posada and Mariano Rivera hung out together at the Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year party. Andy Samberg, Amy Poehler, and Seth Meyers had lunch together.

    Who’s Inspiring Booth Envy at Art Basel Miami?“It’s too early to tell,” says bewhiskered Upper East Side art dealer Robert Mnuchin, a little more than an hour into the blockbuster and busy Art Basel Miami fair. But, in one sense, it isn’t too early; a quick sprint across the floor of the Miami Convention Center shows some artists who’ve already hit the jackpot because powerhouse dealers are displaying them alongside bigger names.
