MEET FAYE DUNAWAY’S “COMEDY COACH”

After insisting on being the one to name the Best Picture winner while paired as a presenter with Warren Beatty at the Oscars, Faye Dunaway ignored his hints and blurted the wrong name. During the melee that followed, Warren actively tried to examine and explain the mistake while Faye made a hasty retreat and refused to talk – leaving him holding the bag. Not very supportive. This reminded our friend Beth Lapides, who runs an alternative comedy show called Uncabaret on Sundays, of a story one of her comics told. His name is Mike McDonald, and he was Faye Dunaway’s “comedy coach” for a short time. You MUST listen to this – click below!

JAMES CORDEN’S ADVENTURES IN LA LA LAND

James Corden, 38, and his wife Julia dropped off their impossibly cute kids at school together. His Late Late Show started with low expectations, but now he’s being hailed as the new King of Late Night TV thanks to his Carpool Karoake videos. Corden’s songfest with Adele in his car was the most watched video on YouTube in 2016. He proved that TV ratings aren’t everything. After James dropped off Max, 6, and Carey, 2, at school in Brentwood, he and Julia drove away in his black Aston Martin convertible. This Brit is livin’ the LA life….

WHAT POSSESSED HALLE BERRY TO WEAR THIS AWFUL WIG TO THE OSCARS?

Halle Berry is lucky that the Best Picture mistaken identity episode occurred at the conclusion of the award show – otherwise everybody would be talking about her wig! She wins WORST HAIR at the event – hands down – and we pity everyone who had to sit behind her at the show! This wig was stiff as a board- didn’t move when she did, and sat on her head like a hat. Halle’s dress onstage was lovely but she changed before she and her WIG went to the Vanity Fair party (above.) Why she didn’t take the WIG off when she had the chance, is a mystery.

WARREN BEATTY: BLAME PRICE WATERHOUSE FOR THAT OSCAR DEBACLE – NOT ME!

Whatever you do, don’t blame Warren Beatty for the Best Picture Oscar debacle on TV last night. The real culprit is Price Waterhouse Cooper – the company responsible for calculating the Oscar results and keeping the winners a secret. The Price company was on talk shows all last week bragging about their super security – they said they have TWO complete sets of winning envelopes delivered to the award show to make SURE the envelopes arrive safely. THAT explains why Emma Stone still had her winning envelope while Warren was handed the duplicate for Best Actress INSTEAD OF Best Picture. Upon opening it, Warren was visibly puzzled and showed it to Faye, probably hoping she would agree to stop the proceedings and ask for the RIGHT envelope. But she paid NO attention and blithely announced La LA Land as winner, leaving him up the creek. Too bad (or maybe not!) La La Land people were already into their speeches when the correction for Moonlight was made. Sam Rubin was among those careless reporters who scornfully speculated that Warren and Faye’s AGE had something to do with the error. (Ageism?) No, it was Price Waterhouse Cooper’s error and we don’t blame Warren for being insulted and carrying around that wrong envelope all night to prove it. However, this mistake DID provide a slam-bang ending for the show!

JUSTINE BATEMAN: LONG TIME NO SEE!

Anyone growing up in the 80’s fondly remembers the popular show Family Ties starring Michael J Fox. Justine Bateman starred as his petulant sister Mallory and the show made her a tabloid favorite. After the series ended in 1989 she drifted out of sight and later confessed that she suffered from anorexia and bulimia. She wasn’t kidding – we remember writing a story for Star magazine about her passing out in a rigorous exercise class – she claimed she hadn’t eaten that day. While her younger brother Jason Bateman developed a successful career, Justine occasionally guested on shows, but didn’t seem all that happy in show business. She got married and had two kids but most important- at the age of 50, she graduated from UCLA with a computer science degree. Yesterday she turned up at the United Voices anti-Trump rally in Beverly Hills.

YOU CAN HAVE THIS OUTFIT WORN BY AMAL CLOONEY

Apparently Amal Clooney shares our passion for vintage – and especially mod 1960’s clothing. This dress and coat combo looks like it could have been designed by Courreges in the swinging 60’s. (And it works for a woman expecting twins.) The original version was paired with white go-go boots, but Amal chose tasteful ankle boots. If you love this look, YOU can have it – and at a more affordable price. The original vintage coat and dress by Lilli Ann are currently listed for sale on eBay. Use this link to find it:

EVERYBODY WANTS TO BE MALIA OBAMA’S FRIEND

Malia Obama’s internship at The Weinstein Co is the talk of the town in NY. She started out reading scripts and will gradually earn more responsibilities. Malia seems to be enjoying her new friends at the film company. After work they often go out to restaurants and bars. Malia’s security are always behind her but she’s 18 and prudently sticks to drinking Red Bull. New interns are even being lured to the company with promises of possibly running into Malia. She’d better get accustomed to the paparazzi…

JARED LETO UNDERCOVER – NOT HIS BEST FASHION MOMENT

We’re not sure if Jared Leto is wearing this crazy outfit to fool and repel fans or he piled on the layers so his suitcase wouldn’t be so heavy. Either way he succeeded – we would NEVER have recognized him at LAX – he only has around eight square inches of skin showing. We have to congratulate the eagle-eyed paparazzi who actually spotted him.

ASAP ROCKY IS NOT LIKELY TO DROWN IN MILAN

Rapper ASAP Rocky is in Italy’s fashion capital, Milan, with his entourage for fashion week and he turned heads in the famous shopping district with this bright yellow attention grabbing outfit. He looks like he’s a non-swimmer on his way to a yacht party in that “inflatable” puffy vest. He’s wearing his favorite $2600.00 Gucci sweatshirt underneath. Yes – that’s what a Gucci hoody costs! Rocky is a nice looking guy (in our opinion without his grill) and he loves fashion, but nobody gets it right ALL the time…

MATTHEW PERRY’S CHIN HAS DISAPPEARED

Believe it or not. Matthew Perry, 47, was the youngest one of the Friends cast but he’s probably aging the worst. Granted, he had some health problems and ended up in rehab a few times, plus he smoked (still does?) so he didn’t lead the healthiest life. Somehow his chin receded into his plump neck and it’s time to take action. After all, he IS an actor. There are new procedures to eliminate double chin that don’t even involve surgery. Time for a visit to the Med Spa.

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT: LOOK WHO’S NOT TALKING ABOUT HARVEY WEINSTEIN !
    |

    We love every one of Harvey Weinstein’s female accusers – but what about the actresses who AREN’T talking? One actress who won an Oscar in the 90’s has been CONSPICUOUSLY SILENT about the casting couch scandal. It’s because SHE has had a long-term “arrangement” with Harvey in which she traded sex for showbiz favors and it must have been awful, but her career prospered. Now this A-lister is horrified at the prospect of being found out! And, guess what – she’s NOT the only one who’s conspicuously silent!
    Any guesses?
