Because of rain, it took sexy German bad boy Nicolas Kiefer seven hours to finally beat 29-year-old wild-card Marc Gicquel of France 6-0, 6-1, 5-7, 3-6, 11-9. Sadly, it was barely 50 degrees outside and Kiefer didn't take his shirt off to celebrate ... (AP)

Did you catch Nick Lachey's sexy new commercial for Axe Click body spray? It shows Nick out and about using a clicker to count each time a woman flirts with him (and many women are flirting -- presumably because of his 1980s-style musk scent Axe body spray rather than his muscular body and cute face!). At the end his pride is ruined, though, as an unknown young man displays the count on his clicker, a number that puts the former Mr. Jessica Simpson to shame.

My on-again, off-again, on-again favorite comedian ever Kathy Griffin is back on the publicity tour, promoting Season 2 of her Bravo reality show, "Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List" (premieres June 6). In case you missed it, the N.Y. Post had a nice interview with her in yesterday's paper, where she revealed that her life hasn't changed much since landing a prime-time television gig:
Griffin, like most of us, looks on with a mixture of awe and envy when celebrities are showered with gifts by their grateful networks. The four stars of "Will & Grace," for example, at the end of their breakout first season in 1999, each were presented with a brand new Porsche Boxster.
What did Griffin get as a "thank-you" for her first season on Bravo's "Kathy Griffin: My Life On The D-List"? "I got an iPod," says Griffin. "And for the second season, I got speakers for the iPod. I got my ass on Apple.com in two seconds to see how much it cost, and it was $59."

Blondie was inducted into Hollywood's RockWalk last week in Hollywood. RockWalk is the only sidewalk gallery dedicated to honoring those artists who have made a significant impact and lasting contribution to the growth and evolution of rock 'n' roll, blues and R&B.
UPDATE: As I reported, Blondie was inducted into Hollywood's RockWalk on Monday, May 22, 2006. Jimmy Destri missed the bus the first time out, but he added his own handprints on Tuesday, Aug. 29, 2006! Congrats to Jimmy, but when is he going to come clean about why he's (apparently) disowned his fellow Blondies? He was in the thick of the "No Exit" reunion (he penned their great comeback hit "Maria"), but by the time the tour for "The Curse of Blondie" finally happened, he had long since been replaced on the road. Where's "Behind the Music" when you need a follow-up?

It was a rough day in Paris to be one of my fave male players as Robby Ginepri, Andy Roddick and Marat Safin all got knocked out (Tommy Haas managed to advance). On the women's side, Martina Hingis flew through her opening round match.

Sexy James Marsden stars as Cyclops in the new X-Men movie, but in real life the dashing young actor is a married father of two with really great taste in cereal. Talk about your heart belonging to daddy ...

If you saw the indie gay flick "Eating Out" a couple of years ago then you know what a treat it was. The film was well-written and well-acted -- and the guys were smoking hot. (And having it set in Tucson made it even more fun for the Arizona boy in me.) Now I see over on OhLaLaParis that there's a sequel in the works, the aptly titled "Eating Out 2: Sloppy Seconds," and the hunk quotient has been lifted even higher this time ...
Brett Chukerman and Marco Dapper get to know each other.

Michael and I had a great time at the Pal Shazar show last night at The Living Room (what a great venue, btw!). Pal looked and sounded great, even bringing out hubby Jules Shear (of "If She Knew What She Wants" and "All Through the Night" fame) for the last two numbers.
I got a chance to talk to Pal after her set and boy was she a complete doll. I gave her a copy of the CD my friend Greg and I had made of her old band's two albums that we converted into one disc. She seemed really tickled and said that it would be "so fun to listen to on the drive back home" (to Asheville).
She's a real gem and what a renaissance woman: in addition to her introspective brand of music, check out her paintings and her line T-shirts over at palshazar.com

If the great Cyndi Lauper had spent her time reading Nabakov instead of the pages of a Blueboy magazine, or watching Bergman instead of Big Time Wrestling, she might have become Pal Shazar.
Come see the Woodstock-based singer/songwriter in an hourlong showcase at 8 p.m. tonight at The Living Room, 154 Ludlow St., Manhattan (map), promoting her new album, "The Morning After."

Model/occupational therapist Julian Fantechi is hot-hot-hot! Not only is he good-looking, he's got his Master's degree from NYU and specializes in working with mentally disabled children. Sounds like this hunk's heart and brain are as big as his pecs ... woof!
