…but late enough in the week to pass it along to you.

From the New York Times piece on Paulina Porizkova and her good friend Ali Wentworth (aka, wife of George Stephanopolous)…emphasis added…:

    Ms. Porizkova and Ms. Wentworth met on a television pilot and have been close ever since, even with Ms. Wentworth now living in Washington. They wasted not a moment catching up. With these two, there was no story too gross, no moment too humiliating to rehash. Most are unprintable here.

    The semi-sanitized highlight reel? Ms. Wentworth’s husband still wants to make love daily, and every year for Christmas he gives his wife a trainer even though she’d rather smoke to be thin. While both women have weathered career peaks and valleys — Ms. Porizkova at 18 was Sports Illustrated’s youngest swimsuit issue cover girl, but she made some forgettable films — they’re now each at a juncture: Ms. Porizkova is in the public eye not as model or actress, but as dancer and novelist, and Ms. Wentworth’s new television show, “Head Case,” premieres this month on the cable channel Starz.
