Some guy was stabbed in the stomach last night at Goldbar while John Mayer was there. Don’t these stabbers have any respect for celebrity? The Beautiful Life’s producers are making Mischa Barton stay away from booze and boys following her stint in the psych ward, and all the poor thing has left to do is “smoke cigarettes.” Chace Crawford and Bar Refaeli have been slinking about the Fashion Week tents together and were spotted together at 1Oak Friday night. Kanye blogged an apology to Taylor Swift after bombing her VMA acceptance speech last night, eloquently noting in all caps, “I’M SOOOOO SORRY.” Swift described the situation from her perspective: “Well, I was standing onstage because I was really excited because I had just won the award. And then I was really excited because Kanye West was onstage. And then I wasn’t so excited anymore after that.” Condé Nast staffers basically ruined Eric Ripert’s “Page Six” item about the party for his new PBS show, Avec Eric, by talking to the reporters about Condé Nast cost cuts.
While Madonna was busy prepping for the VMAs, Jesus Luz hit up the Y-3 show. Speaking of Madge, the boss of her Raising Malawi charity quit his job to move in with Madge’s trainer, Tracy Anderson. All that gyrating must be paying off. And speaking of adoption, Elton John and his partner want to adopt a 14-month-old Ukrainian orphan. Lily Allen is threatening to quit singing and become an actress.
After allegedly beating and biting a Miami hooker in March, the ShamWow guy (a.k.a. Vince Shlomi) is trying to revamp his reputation and launch a swimwear line. So he’s been hanging out at Fashion Week events with infamous PR girl Lizzie Grubman, who was also charged with a felony and served jail time. Julian Schnabel is unloading his art collection (including works by Braque and Man Ray) to finance his divorce from wife No. 2. Gisele put both her West Village penthouse triplex and Barrow Street townhouse on the market last week, but then her broker pulled the listings for the sake of Bündchen’s privacy. And after Megan Fox trash-talked Transformers director Michael Bay, referring to him as “Hitler” on set, the film’s crew retaliated with a letter defending Bay and calling Fox “dumb as a rock.” But now Bay says he doesn’t mind that Fox dissed him, and that her “crazy quips are part of her crazy charm.” Apparently being hot lets you get away with a lot. Jon Gosselin was strolling solo in Soho, probably looking for the Ed Hardy store.
