David Zinczenko on His New 'High-Profile Life' and the Real Story Behind His Leaving Rodale - Posted May 8, 2013
I've been looking forward to today's Michael's lunch for quite a while. David Zinczenko, who I met in this very dining room many years ago, was joining me with his business partner Stephen Perrine... [FishbowlLA]

Isabella Rossellini's Animal Instincts - Posted May 1, 2013
There are lunches at Michael's and then there are lunches at Michael's. Today I joined Isabella Rossellini at Table One and had a fascinating conversation with her about aging, celebrity, fashion and gay geese. Stay with me ... these seemingly disparate... [FishbowlLA]

The Truth About Rachel Uchitel's Tweet and A Birthday Party For Ed Rollins - Posted March 20, 2013
When it comes to Wednesdays at Michael's, the early bird might not always get the best table, but today it did land me something of a timely scoop. Some time before noon, I spotted Rachel Uchitel, the woman whose texts to Tiger Woods helped bring down th... [FishbowlLA]

Joe Kernen Settles a Bet, Plus the Return of Michael Wolff - Posted March 6, 2013
Threats of yet another winter storm (We're begging for mercy!) didn't keep the faithful from Michael's today. In fact, the dining room was even more crowded than usual as some of the city's biggest hot shots cooled their heels at the bar and in the lounge as they waited to be... [FishbowlLA]

Naomi Campbell and Her Supermodel Castmates Dish About Their New 'Face' - Posted February 6, 2013
We were more than a little disappointed to learn that we missed Dan Stevens aka Matthew Crawley on Downton Abbey when he lunched with producer Paula Wagner at Table One on Monday. (Doesn't he know Wednesday is the day for lunch at Michael's?) Luckily, today's oh-so-fabulous lunch with the cast of... [FishbowlLA]

Shirley MacLaine Stops by a Birthday Party for Liz Smith - Posted January 30, 2013
I knew it was going to be quite the scene at Michael's today when a little birdie told me that there was going to be a lunch for Liz Smith celebrating the grand dame of gossip's upcoming birthday at Table One. Suffice to say I wasn't disappointed. ... [FishbowlLA]

Barbara Walters, Arianna Huffington and a Socialite Celebration - Posted August 1, 2012
We were so disappointed to hear we missed Alec Baldwin by a day. A little birdie told me Manhattan's most famous newlywed was in an extremely good mood yesterday as he dined with a mystery gal with a British accent (Attention Andrea Peyser!). Here's another tasty tidbit about the 30 Rock... [FishbowlLA]

Summer's Social Swans, Kim Kardashian's BFF and the Woman Behind Mad Men - Posted July 25, 2012
Where else could you possibly find friends of reality stars (Come on, you can't expect an A-lister sighting every week) and the last vestiges of Cafe Society all in one room? If it's Wednesday, at Michael's, of course. I couldn't even begin to do justice to the head-spinning scene there today,... [FishbowlLA]

Star Jones, Henry Schleiff & A Squadron of Spinmeisters - Posted June 13, 2012
After several back-to-back weeks of a somewhat boisterous SRO crowd at Michael's, it was a bit of a relief to find a more subdued dining room today. The dreary rain (will it ever end?!) seems to have kept some of the town car set at their desks. But, this being Wednesday,... [FishbowlLA]

A Regis & Kathie Lee Reunion, Plus Harold Ford Jr., Carl Bernstein and Star Jones - Posted May 2, 2012
I love it when Michael's is firing on all cyclinders. After a nasty bug kept me away from 55th Street last week, it was good to see the dining room jam packed with celebs of all stripes. Everywhere you looked there was a famous face -- Kathie Lee Gifford... [FishbowlLA]

A Party For Kate White and A Madoff Sighting - Posted March 21, 2012
It's the rare Wednesday when I don't leave Michael's with a fistful of business cards from some striver or media maven intent on making an impression. That's why it's so newsworthy when the exact opposite occurs. Today was the rare occasion when a famous -- make that infamous -- name did... [FishbowlLA]

Ed Rollins Talks Presidential Politics; The 1 Percent Toasts the Good Life - Posted March 14, 2012
We've gotten so used to the celebrity circus that has dominated Michael's lately that we did a double take when we found the dining room populated mostly by suits, well-heeled ladies and dandies who prefer to let their bank accounts (not publicists) do the talking. Aside from the usual boldface names... [FishbowlLA]

Katie Couric, Star Jones & the Fashion Week Flock - Posted February 15, 2012
The media A-list has decided that winter is over (did it ever start?) and came out of hibernation in a major way at Michael's today. Every square inch of the dining room was occupied by boldface names of every description from social swans (Amy Fine Collins... [FishbowlLA]

Ringing in the Holidays With Harold Ford Jr., Star Jones & Donny Deutsch - Posted December 14, 2011

Real Housewife Melissa Gorga Dishes on Her Sister-in-Law From Hell - Posted November 30, 2011
Slow moving holiday tourists and presidential motorcades be damned. Nothing could keep the faithful away from Michael's today. With the place decked out in its holiday finery, the mood was like a swanky office party on steroids. While the usual suspects and a cool visitor from California (producer/composer ... [FishbowlLA]

Tom Brokaw, Vernon Jordan and the Shy Divorcee - Posted November 16, 2011
It was SRO at Michael's today. The dining room was so jam packed every sqaure inch was occupied by a mogul (Mel Karmazin!), media heavyweight (Tom Brokaw, ... [FishbowlLA]

Al Roker, Barbara Bush and Peggy Siegal Fetes Elizabeth Olsen - Posted November 9, 2011
We were disappointed to hear that we'd missed seeing Wendy Williams who'd come by on Monday for lunch with her parents. A little birdie told me that the talk show diva issued this rallying cry to mom and dad before departing to face the lone papa... [FishbowlLA]

Caroline Manzo, Morgan Fairchild, Plus HarperCollins Fetes William Boyd - Posted November 2, 2011
One of the things I love most about chronicling the Wednesday scene at Michael's is the random celeb sightings that seem to come out of left field. On offer today: television stars of the past and present that represent the changing (and fickle?) tastes of the viewing public. When none other... [FishbowlLA]

Roger Ailes, Barry Diller & The Squawk Box Super Heroes - Posted October 26, 2011

Barbara Walters, Harold Ford, Jr. and Bravo's Chris March - Posted October 5, 2011
We could barely keep up with the steady stream of A-listers who poured into Michael's today. When we arrived a little before noon, there was a handful of power brokers quietly hunkering down to business over their Cobb salads in the back of the room. By the time Bravo's latest star,... [FishbowlLA]

Rachel Uchitel Creates A Stir at Michael's - Posted March 30, 2011
-- DIANE CLEHANE Having covered the scene at Michael's for some time now, I've been witness to plenty of Fellini-esque tableaus where the head-spinning mix of stars and strivers, masters of the universe, and alien-like actors never ceases to amuse and occasionally amaze me, but today was off the charts. What started... [FishbowlLA]
