Donatella Versace
Versace has branded a new biopic about Donatella Versace "a work of fiction."

She tells New York Magazine, "It's more fun to look super-gnarly (ugly) tha...

Gina Gershon: 'Only Young Guys Come On To Me'

Gina Gershon
Gina Gershon is convinced she can't get a date with a man her age because 40-something guys are too intimidated to chat her up.

Gershon, 47, has written off men of her generation, insisting they weren't raised to appreciate strong, career-minded women.

She tells the New York Post, "I'm available. Single... But eligible guys are hard to find. I know amazing professional women who can't get guys. Only young ones come on to me. In their 20s, they're emotionally available and more polite. Those my own age don't want strong women. The ones in their 40s were raised wrong."

Hugh Hefner
A dark cloud loomed over the Playboy Mansion. Hugh Hefner was dumped by not one but three babes simultaneously. Before you drown your all-my-heroes-are-geezers sorrows in Chivas and Cuban cigars, remember: You should never doubt Hef. He’s already frolicking with three new blondes (two of them twins) in the grotto. But it does make us wonder. Is it time for Hef to pass on his proverbial baton to some other stud?

CBGB Fans Protest Outside Defunct Rock Venue

Angry music fans protested outside New York's new John Varvatos store last week - because the clothing store had taken the place of punk mecca CBGB. The East Village live music venue closed its doors in 2006 after CBGB boss Hilly Kristal lost a lease battle with his landlords.

The space is now shared by rock art gallery Morrison Hotel and designer Varvatos' new clothing store.

A movie that begins with two people hoping to erase all traces of each other from one another's minds potentially heralded two hours of mud slinging. Instead, Winslet and Carrey work wonders together as a c...
