Gallerie Sparta on the Sunset Strip was the place to be Thursday night. It was opening night for Richard Grieco’s collection of “abstract emotionalism” paintings and he drew quite an eclectic crowd. Johnny Mathis left before we got there and that was a HUGE disappointment. Mickey Rooney, of all people, was in a wheelchair but looked quite happy to be out and about. Mickey Rourke was expected but we never saw him – too bad. Presumably Richard (“If Looks Could Kill”) had consumed some cocktails or had sold a few expensive paintings before we chatted with him – hence the robust hugs. We asked if he was single and he said he had never been married but had dated among others, Madonna and Sharon Stone awhile back (who KNEW?) Right now he has a girlfriend but we never saw her.

    Most people would say: Who is Janet? Who is Richard? Who really cares?

    Better than running another Kardashian or Jlo press release though!

    He probably would have aged nicely, being Italian. He should not have messed with his face.

    I love Richard griecos art, visit his website, it’s mesmerizing.

    And Janet’s outfit is cute. I know it’s a matter of taste but I like it.

    And yes, I prefer a story like this versus a Leann rimes or ktrash story.

    Is this openly gay TV personality who already suffered a painful loss, headed for another stay at heartbreak Hotel? He has a new YOUNG boyfriend and he’s doing everything he can to promote the lad’s career. But, BEHIND HIS BACK, the conniving cutie is having a fling with the personal trainer they both share! Our unsuspecting TV guy doesn’t have a clue because the hunky trainer has a green-card marriage and plays it straight.

    Whodunit?? Guess who.
