Crikey! Are We Getting Madonna Back?
Madonna and Guy Richie may or may not be breaking up because Madonna “lost respect” for Richie when she found out he embellished his working-class roots. The upside: She may be moving to NYC! Matt Lauer has foolishly agreed to be roasted by the Friar’s Club. Donatella Versace is appearing at Barneys today to tout her menswear line. Foxy Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin and Representative Anthony Weiner totally acted like a couple during David Paterson’s swearing-in ceremony in Albany yesterday. Mary-Louise Parker is bad at giving directions to people in the West Village, even though she lives there. Cindy Adams thinks both Andrew Cuomo and Michael Bloomberg will make runs for governor.
Anthony Kennedy Shriver, Live at the Audi ForumLast night’s Best Buddies party at the Audi Forum was one of those late-summer classics — great air-conditioning, good cocktails, medium turnout. Georgina Bloomberg drifted around, looking at expensive cars with her boyfriend and fellow equestrian, Cian O’Connor. Lauren Bush arrived just before her boyfriend, David Lauren (who was, mind-bogglingly, wearing a zippered Ralph Lauren sweatshirt with a giant pony on it). And polo-playing Polo model Nacho Figueras posed listlessly with his Amazonian wife, Delfina Blaquier. Anthony Kennedy Shriver, nephew of JFK and head of the Best Buddies charity, told the crowd that the Audi–Best Buddies partnership was born when the chairman of the car company sat next to Shriver’s wife on a plane. “He was hitting on her for nine hours over the Atlantic!” he cracked. Then, gesturing at his own slightly kooky attire, he added, “I’m wearing these pants and shoes so David Lauren will see me and offer to buy me a new wardrobe.” Zoinks! A Kennedy comedian — who knew?
