PBS Gets 'Vicious' | Ian McKellan and Derek Jacobi Shine

PBS Gets ‘Vicious’ | Ian McKellan and Derek Jacobi Shine

  Despite savage reviews by British television critics, something tells me that American fans of British comedies may well find a new favorite in PBS’s new six-part sitcom, Vicious starring acclaimed actors Sir Ian McKellen and Derek Jacob. Why?  Because, after previewing the first five episodes of season 1, I  most certainly found a lot...
Me and Mademoiselle C

Me and Mademoiselle C

If you, like me, have an unabashed fervor for all things fashion, then it is highly unlikely that you’ve not on some level become enamored of Carine Roitfeld. If not for the singularity of the vision she brought to French Vogue for a decade, then perhaps for the fact that she was the muse for...
Bob Sinclar: The Pied Piper of Paris Nightlife

Bob Sinclar: The Pied Piper of Paris Nightlife

I’ve spent more nights than I can count (and certainly more than I can remember) dancing the night away in any number of those dim, uniquely Parisian bars that are short on light and long on the kind of fun that goes on past dawn. And more often than not, the rhythmic hooks of Bob...

In Pictures: Holiday Cheer with Olga Valentina

Olga Valentina may be relatively new to Hollywood, but she has certainly not let any grass grow under her high-heel clad feet since touching down in Tinseltown.  In the space of a few short years, the self-proclaimed ‘beauty from Moscow’ has completed a year-long conservatory program at the acclaimed Lee Strasberg School in West Hollywood and...

supperclub The Restaurant | A Dinner Spectacle

supperclub The Restaurant | A Dinner Spectacle

My first ever brush with the supperclub experience took place in London when one of my smartest friends invited me to his birthday celebration at the Notting Hill-based outpost of the hotspot. It was at the time still such an underground secret that even the generally extremely knowledgeable London taxi drivers had no idea where...
LivingWells Playlist | Movember-ish

LivingWells Playlist | Movember-ish

I’m always getting asked how I fill all the hours I spend on the road and my reply is always a quick ‘quite pleasantly actually’.  I may be rare in this respect, but the time I spend on planes, trains and even in airports is as close to downtime as I usually get and one...
Mindy Kaling's “Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me (And Other Concerns)”

Mindy Kaling’s “Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me (And Other Concerns)”

Some might say that I’m on the late train here, but I have recently fallen madly in love with audiobooks. And when I say ‘in love’, I really mean obsessed! As a writer I have always had a certain reverence for the written word, but with the amount of time I spend in my car...

San Francisco, Cate Blanchett Shine in Woody Allen’s ‘Blue Jasmine’

On a Power Trip with Jackie Collins

On a Power Trip with Jackie Collins

There are days when even I think I’ve picked a pretty good gig in this life, and this is definitely one of those days. As I sit down to write this week’s blog, I am contemplating what a journey life can be. It really is sort of a—well, trip, when you think about it. When...
Do You Know The Way To Ojai?

Do You Know The Way To Ojai?

Do you know the way to Ojai? Robert Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon do. Ojai might only be about 85 miles outside of Los Angeles, but it couldn’t be more different from its glitzy Tinseltown neighbor.  While Los Angeles is a classic example of urban sprawl, tiny Ojai, California (pop: 7,862) is the epitome of small...
The Village Inn – The Ultimate “Holiday Inn”

The Village Inn – The Ultimate “Holiday Inn”

  It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas and for lovers of classic films, Christmas looks a lot like Sonoma County’s Village Inn. When Paramount Pictures put Irving Berlin, Bing Crosby, and Fred Astaire together back in 1942 to lens the now classic holiday film “Holiday Inn,” little did they know that they were...
VIP Lounge: Johnny Weir

VIP Lounge: Johnny Weir

When I met Johnny Weir at a photo shoot in Hollywood, he wasn’t at all what I expected—a revelation that the well traveled, two-time Olympian has become all too accustomed to hearing. He was smaller than I had imagined, but then again most celebrities are. His voice was neither boisterous nor demanding, but instead disarmingly...

While for the rest of the world the most wonderful time of year may fall somewhere between Thanksgiving and December 31, in Hollywood there is no more glittering space of time than the weeks leading up to the Academy Awards.
