Is that Tom Brady?
At a relatively swanky Victoria's Secret book party Tuesday night in Manhattan, I'm getting a drink at the bar when a buzz ripples through the crowd around me. A two-time Super Bowl MVP towering over a crowd has that kind of effect.
Tom Brady, sporting a new military buzz haircut, was hanging out with some non-athlete friends. He couldn't have picked a better party to show up at.
Among the women circulating were pregnant Heidi Klum (but without question, the hottest pregnant woman I've ever seen her purple skirt was maybe eight inches long and didn't come close to reaching mid-thigh), Sports Illustrated cover girl Karolina Kurkova, the amazing Alessandra Ambrosio, the stunningly gorgeous Adriana Lima and, as Conan O'Brien put it, "the most beautiful woman in the world," Gisele Bundchen.
Brady, who was without girlfriend Bridget Moynahan, was surprisingly approachable when I went up to him.
The Patriots' quarterback spent the next couple hours mingling Klum stopped by on her way out and Kurkova stopped by for an extended conversation before departing. Quarterbacks, they still get all the girls.
After the night of hard-partying, Brady hopped on a plane Wednesday and returned to Boston in time for the "Fever Pitch" premiere at Fenway Park. There, he walked on the red carpet among other celebs including Johnny Damon, David Ortiz, Doug Flutie and, of course, the stars of the movie, Drew Barrymore and Jimmy Fallon.
Celebrating in style
Tennis prodigy Maria Sharapova makes the transition from attractive teenager to sexy adult miraculously, that transformation suddenly occurs once the clock strikes midnight on her 18th birthday. Everybody wants to know if the Palm Beach Post is hinting that there could (stressing could) be a budding romance between American tennis star Andy Roddick and Sharapova. Does that make it true?
Well, you may recall Roddick's initial foray into the celebrity dating world in 2002, when he began romancing just-turned-18 actress/singer Mandy Moore. Sharapova turns 18 on April 19, so perhaps we'll have an update then.
90210 lives forever
What might make them scamper over to Beverly Hills? How about the presence of Mr. Beverly Hills, Brandon Walsh!
An on-the-ball reader e-mailed us a link to these pictures of Jason Priestley and his fiancee strolling through Beverly Hills and shopping up a storm. He's recovering nicely from that near-death auto accident, and likely wondering if "The O.C." will ever take the place of "90210" in the pantheon of teen angst-ridden dramas; she's a bustier, leggier, version of Scarlett Johansson. Nice work, Brandon!
Paris: She's back!
There was concern and downright outrage last week when we neglected to inform the viewing public at the latest haps of the indomitable Paris Hilton. It's probably best to chalk it up to technical difficulties.
Far be it [for me] to pass sartorial judgment on a fashion plate such as Paris Hilton, but folks ... she's hot!
While you line up for "Star Wars," I'll be looking into advance tickets for "House of Wax."
Jose Canseco goes the reality route
Who's more likely to knock Omarosa out? Janice Dickinson or Canseco?
Big Ben: Golfin' with his girl
In the event you didn't get your fill of the Natalie Gulbis/Ben Roethlisberger coupling in the last three months, there's a tiny update.
The two are playing coy about their relationship, which, to be honest, is the way to go.
That's not to say there's isn't any news. Since we sent golf and football fans buzzing with the news of their relationship, the best read comes courtesy of Alan Shipnuck, who sat in on corporate meetings with Natalie, and her hilarious father (stage dad, what?), as she makes the transformation from mere golfer to celebrity.
Eli Manning loses to an '80s movie star
Finally, we can rest easier: 18-year-old starlet Lindsay Lohan wasn't brushing off New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning for no reason it looks like she had her eye on an older man, Christian Slater.
Leaving no "Star Wars" joke left unturned, the circle is complete. We have pulled off the holy trinity of celebrity mentions: Britney Spears, Paris Hilton, and Lindsay Lohan, all in one entry.
