Paul Simon Says Ex-Wife Carrie Fisher's Death Came 'Too Soon'
Huffington Post - about 2 months
Paul Simon isn’t taking the news of Carrie Fisher’s death well. The musician, who was briefly married to Fisher in the 1980s, expressed his condolences in a tweet early Wednesday morning.  "Yesterday was a horrible day. Carrie was a special, wonderful girl. It's too soon." -Paul Simon — Paul Simon (@PaulSimonMusic) December 28, 2016 The beloved actress and author died Tuesday following her hospitalization last week. She was 60. Fisher and Simon met while Fisher was filming the first “Star Wars” movie, which debuted in 1977. “Once they saw each other, no one else mattered to either of them,” Peter Ames Carlin wrote in this year’s Homeward Bound: The Life of Paul Simon. The pair moved into an apartment near Central Park almost instantly, but their relationship was complicated by Fisher’s heavy drug use and fears that she wouldn’t live up to Simon’s reputation as a musical virtuoso. Hoping marriage would solve their problems, they wed in 1983, but divorced the ...

Liz Smith: Lindsay As Liz -- Oh, Come On, Let's Give Her a Chance! Also, How Skyfall, Argo and Ralph Saved Hollywood
Huffington Post - over 4 years
"THERE IS no deodorant like success," said Elizabeth Taylor. I DON'T know about you but I've seen the movie trailer to the coming Nov. 25th Liz & Dick and although I know it won't be a patch on the real-life Burtons of movie fame, I just can't wait to catch Lindsay Lohan as Elizabeth Taylor! Since I traveled with Elizabeth and Richard back in the day and wrote about their tempestuous passionate marriage in London, Paris, Rome, New York, L.A., and Leningrad, I feel like a minor authority. But, consider the fallout from the recent Lindsay Lohan-nixing of a Barbara Walters interview on ABC's 20/20? Who knew that umpteen years ago, in 2006, at a pre-Oscar party in the home of super agent Bryan Lourd, I was the person who went across a crowded room and corralled a young actress named Lindsay, saying to her, "There is someone here you need to meet"? Lindsay came with me willingly and I took her to the fireplace where I said, "Lindsay, this is Barbara Walters!" S ...

Jay Weston: Build - Geeks at the Geffen!
Huffington Post - over 4 years
I have never been one to play video games, not since Atari's Pong, which came along in the early days of the Internet. I have an addictive personality, and I knew that if I started playing the many exciting video games that were coming online, I would be hooked, and the limited number of hours in the day would be severely limited even further. So no shooting at aliens, animals or villains for me -- even though the video game industry has now become a multi-billion dollar industry, far overshadowing the movie industry in volume and appeal. I have deliberately stayed away from these games. And then I went to the Geffen Playhouse (10886 Le Conte Avenue, Westwood (310)208-5454) and realized that I was absolutely right to do so. At the smaller, delightful Audrey Skirball Kenis Theatre at the Geffen Playhouse, I saw the new show, Build, by Michael Golamco, and enjoyed it in a limited way. Frankly, this is a show for geeks, friends and families of geeks, and those who wish to ...

Ioannis Pappos: The Art Market's Dead Reckoning
Huffington Post - over 4 years
It was brunch time on a sunny Saturday in New York's West Village. Julian Schnabel, the celebrated artist and filmmaker, was holding court at Sant Ambroeus' main table. The larger than life New York artist was surrounded by seven friends, most of whom cowed by Schnabel's towering personality. Dressed in one of his signature pajamas outfits, he introduced "Paolo!," his "favorite waiter," to the crammed table. Rula Jebreal, the stunning Italo-Palestinian journalist (and Schnabel's life partner), was squeezed to his left, and folding chairs were added so Lou Reed and Laurie Anderson could fit in. Power-agent Bryan Lourd stopped by, dangling a baby over eggs crostino so the artist could cradle the newborn for a second or two. Downtown fixtures gave quick greetings while the artist nodded behind his sunglasses. Schnabel "had" the room. Nothing could upstage him. Then this happened: A modest-sized limo pulled up outside the restaurant and Henry and Marie-Josée Kravis stepped o ...

An alternative version of this article will appear in the July issue of Avenue Magazine. Wednesday, May 16 I have hitched a night flight on Lisa Marie Falcone's G5 to Nice and arrive at Teterboro early enough to sneak three trunks filled with 10 Marchesa gowns onto her plane. Lisa arrives two hours later. She is making her maiden voyage to the 65th Cannes Film Festival as a producer of the hot film,Mud. She arrives with gargantuan Vuitton luggage that fills the fuselage. We are now part of 200,000 filmmakers, dealmakers, studio execs, stars, journalists, models, hookers and yachtsmen ready to see 22 films in competition and party till dawn for 12 days. Festival executives affected by the global financial crisis are delirious with numerous fashion houses acting as major underwriters and allow them to brand and control the press coverage on the red carpets, sometimes overshadowing the very films the festival is presenting. Sponsors who control the after parties a ...

Encino Patch - almost 5 years
Who's making the list of the $40,000-a-head dinner of 150 guests at George Clooney's party today? And nothing can happen there, not with "Iron Man" and "Spider-Man" on the guest list. (Of course, Clooney was Batman, too.) Here is what we've been able to find so far. * Barbra Streisand (who hosted bigtime Democratic fundraisers before) * Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man) * Tobey Maguire (Spider-Man) * Leonardo DiCaprio (J Edgar) * Wolfgang Puck (Working it as caterer) * DreamWorks Animation Chief Executive Officer Jeffrey Katzenberg (Lion King) * Ellen Degeneres (Obama appeared on her show, shot in the Valley) * James Brolin (Mr. Streisand) * Andy Spahn (political consultant) * Steven Spielberg (War Horse) * J.J. Abrams (Armageddon) * CAA's Bryan Lourd * ICM's Chris Silbermann The list is being kept top secret, and these guests will be bused in. Others on the speculated elite list (but not confirmed) include: * Scarlett Johansson * Hal ...
