At last night's Cinema Society after-party for Sleepwalking at the Soho Grand Penthouse, Rachel Zoe took a few seconds between smokes, air kisses, and her BlackBerry to chat with the Cut. She was one of the few revelers uninterested in Spitzer speculation.

Although her musical attempts have never really made it past the Internet-leaking stage and her dance work has been confined to the banquettes at Teddy's, Nicole Richie has apparently been offered the part of Roxie Hart in a Broadway production of Chicago. "It would give her a reason to really show her talent," a "source" told Us Weekly. The source, who is clearly not a publicist for Richie or anything, added that "people are really excited about Nicole right now … 2008 is going to be really exciting for her." Not to mention for us! The presence of the Richie-Maddens in New York could jump start the celebrity diaspora that Angelina and Brad stunted when they left town in October. There's one potential fly in the ointment, though: "You have to be able to act, dance and sing," to be on Broadway, Robert Viagas, founder of Playbill.com tells Us. "If you pull off all three, the entertainment world notices." And if you don't, everyone notices.

The cast of Spring Awakening likes watching the parody video "Celine Dion Is Fucking Amazing" before taking the stage. Jamie Johnson'sThe One Percent, the second movie he's made about rich Upper East Siders, premieres tonight. Alice + Olive designer Stacey Bendet got engaged to Eric Eisner, son of former Disney chief Michael Eisner. Entertainment Weekly canceled its annual Oscar-night viewing party at Elaine's.

We were delighted by Tuesday's news that Paris Hilton's first major humanitarian effort involved encouraging people to stop making alcohol available to a roving gang of binge-drinking elephants in India. Given Paris's countless inarticulate, heavy-lidded avowals that she would devote her post-prison life to charitable work, it seemed poetic than one of Hollywood's most visible drunk party animals would gravitate to staging an intervention for actual drunk animals. Tragically, her publicist debunked the rumor, but it was too late: We were already reminiscing about the Summer of Legal Shenanigans, wondering how the midterm report cards of our favorite famous celebrity miscreants would look — and whether, as they promised, things are going to be different this time.
