No surprise here that the West End musical version of "Desperately Seeking Susan," set to Blondie's back catalog and based on the 1985 movie of the same name, will close on Dec. 15, just one month after the show's opening night at the Novello Theatre. Just one look at the lead actresses in "character" and you knew this was coming.
In the play's defense, however, it did last longer than Debbie Harry's one and only Broadway show. "Teaneck Tanzi : The Venus Flytrap," which co-starred the least funny person of all time, Andy Kaufman. The 10-round "wrestling match" opened with the matinee and closed after the evening performance back on April 20, 1983, at the Nederlander Theater. If any of you happened to see this (there were also 13 previews that Deb swears were great -- "it was really hysterical. I’m telling you, it was really funny" -- I'd love to hear from you. (Playbill)

It seems I'm not the only one who celebrated a milestone birthday this year. Wilhelmina Models hit the big 4-0, and it was a beautiful people only crowd at the big event, yesterday at the Angel Orensanz Foundation in New York:

Sorry for the lack of blog posts today. It was a "good news/bad news" combo that knocked me out of commission late last night. The good news was it looks like I sold another one of my essays and I was busy doing edits on it for this publication's January issue. (I'm completely thrilled!) The bad news was my cable went out as I was finishing up the rewrites, so when I went to start blogging I couldn't connect to the Web. I just got woken up (this is early for me -- I work nights!) by a repairman who was here to fix my intercom, but I'm thinking of jumping back in bed for awhile (Larry needs a nap!). More later ...

UPDATE: See what a couple of real gay dads think of the ad here.

TMZ seems to insert images from its postings into advertisements, like this one for T-Mobile, above ... Brady Quinn hawks EAS Myoplex (I've been drinking these since 2000 and my body has never looked anything like this, below.
'Cause I always have to beat everything into the ground, here's a very fun interview and behind-the-scenes look at this photo layout from Men's Health. In it, we learn that Mr. Notre Dame finds it hard to find pants that fit "such long legs and a small waist" (Polo usually works), he loved vacationing in the Cayman Islands, and "Varsity Blues" and "Rudy" are two of his favorite movies. The best part is when he lets his Midwest roots slip out and calls soda "pop" -- but then quickly catches himself. Very cute!

I don't know about you, but ever since Brady Quinn went from being a big fish in a collegiate pond to a small fish in the NFL pond, I haven't been seeing enough of his handsome mug (oh, or his hot bod). Lucky for us the hunky Cleveland Browns backup quarterback is putting his telegenic looks to good use as the spokesman for a new Gillette promotion with Facebook. In the campaign, Brady shows us how he puts his "game face" on -- using Gillette products on his baby face, of course -- and invites his fans to submit photos or videos showing how they get their "game face" on, too. Four lucky winners will get to spend some face-to-face time with the dreamy QB in New York (Chelsea, perhaps?).

Ever wonder what would happen if everyone -- not just the cuties who work at the entrance -- walked about Abercrombie & Fitch shirtless? (The best part is when two of them actually get kicked out while trying to buy $45 shirts!)
