HEY, RYAN GOSLING: WHATEVER HAPPENED TO EVA MENDES?

Well, HERE’S a couple you’re lucky to see once every six months. Six years and two kids after they first met, Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes are rarely seen together in public. And Eva seems to have given up her acting career – the last time she worked was in 2013 in The Place Beyond the Pines, directed by Ryan. While Ryan continues to make movies right and left, Eva has worked on her fashion collection for NY&C, but basically been a stay at home mom, as far a we know…

KENNY LOGGINS STILL KNOWS HOW TO CUT LOOSE

Never paid all that much attention to Kenny Loggins of Loggins & Messina, but the 69 year old singer/songwriter performed in New York recently and he looks darn good. We didn’t realize he’s made a fortune by doing movie soundtracks for films like Top Gun and Footloose. In fact, he earned the title King of the Movie Soundtrack – not a bad way to make a living!

LONG TIME NO SEE: WHITE HOUSE PROVOCATEUR MONICA LEWINSKY

In 1998, Monica Lewinsky, now 44, was one of the most famous people in the world, yet she wasn’t able to parlay her fame into a profitable career. It turned out she wasn’t as innocent as she claimed – Monica had an affair with her married high school drama teacher before Bill Clinton. And Hillary Clinton’s condemnation of Monica instead of her husband has left a black mark on her own character. Bad decisions all. Today Monica is still single and says she has a hard time getting a job although she is educated. She devotes a lot of time speaking out against online bullying. For some reason, we have a hard time feeling sorry for her…

RIGHT SAID FRED BROTHERS ARE STILL TOO SEXY FOR THEIR SHIRTS

Who didn’t love that Right Said Fred song back in the ‘90s “I’m Too Sexy?” English brothers Fred and Richard Fairbrass were both musicians who spent far too much time working out. (Gym queens?) However it inspired this popular and hilarious song that probably made them a ton of money over the years in movies and commercials. The musclebound brothers are touring again with a new album called “Exactly.”

LONG TIME NO SEE: JACQUELINE BISSET

One of our all-time favorites, Jacqueline Bisset, walked the red carpet in Cannes to promote her new movie L’ Amant Double. She speaks fluent French and seems to do more films in France than the US these days. She was the object of many male fantasies, and through the years we documented her long-term romances, but she was never interested in marriage. “Too independent.”

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.

WILL & GRACE TEN YEARS LATER

At last – some good news! The Will & Grace show IS coming back – for real. (At least 10 episodes!) It must have been SOME job getting the whole cast as well as the very important creative team on the same page at the same time. NBC pulled it off by having everyone resume their contracted salaries and the good deals they had when the show went off the air ten years ago. The show aired for eight seasons and we think it jumped the shark when Debra Messing got pregnant and her skinny character Grace had to conceal the weight gain. Can’t WAIT to see Will, Grace, Jack, and Karen again ten years later and find out what they’re doing NOW!

OUT OF THE WAY! HERE COMES VAL KILMER!

Fans of Val Kilmer, 57, will be happy to see that the mysterious actor, who’s been out of sight for a long time, finally turned up at the W magazine Golden Globes party at Chateau Marmont, and he looks healthier. His physical condition has been a big issue and the fact that he’s a Christian Scientist made people wonder if he was getting medical attention. Val insists that he IS, and said he did not have throat cancer, but was suffering from a “swollen tongue.” And his neck is no longer wrapped up. At least he’s feeling well enough to party and after a two year absence onscreen, he has a few movies lined up for 2017.

Above, fans and paparazzi got very excited to see Val and mobbed him!)

NEIL SEDAKA IS STILL ON THE ROAD

Old school singer/songwriter Neil Sedaka popped into Craig’s for dinner and left with a doggie bag. The Breaking Up Is Hard to Do singer had a string of hits in the 60’s but feels The Beatles ruined his performing career by changing musical taste. He went on to great success as a songwriter with songs like Where the Boys Are. At 77, he still tours and performs in the US and around the world. In fact, he’s appearing at the Saban theater in Beverly Hills in January. We fondly remember his Scopitone video of Calendar Girl. Did you know he’s only 5’5” tall?

NINA HAGEN: STILL CRAZY AFTER ALL THESE YEARS!

And that’s a GOOD thing. Nina Hagen celebrated the 45th anniversary of her eventful career in London and proved she‘s still got what it takes. The German born singer /songwriter was a huge underground favorite in the late 70’s and 80’s years of punk and new wave. (She earned the title “Godmother of Punk”) Her theatrical attire and extravagant – sometimes operatic- vocalizations made her infamous. We remember back in the 80’s, we had a yard sale with friends and were thrilled when Nina stopped by to shop! She picked out the most outrageous clothes she could find and we were happy to see our stuff have a second life with her.

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?
