New Yorker Puts a Holiday Stamp on Redskins Fracas

The noun “kerfuffle” is one of those words that makes you want to look up the etymology. When FishbowlNY did just that, we came upon the following citation example: Don Imus has thrown the capital into a kerfuffle.

Epic Recipe Battles: Gwyneth vs. Martha

We didn’t want to head into the weekend without touching on People magazine associate editor Michele Corriston‘s fun item posted Thursday night.

JailbirdCake

She notes that in the realm of Thanksgiving double (recipe) entendres, the gang at Goop appears to have slyly fired back at Team Martha Stewart Living for that recent conscious uncoupling dig. In the form of instructions for “Jailbird Cake:”

“The folks at Goop know how to have some fun, too,” a source close to Paltrow tells People. “If Martha served up the appetizer, the Jailbird Cake is just desserts.”

Reporter Remains ‘Livid’ About Spiking of 2005 Bill Cosby Expose

RobinMizrahiPicThe Bill Cosby news stream continues to unfurl at a furious pace. And from an inside-media perspective, one of  the biggest headlines remains the business explored by Mark Ebner and now, The Guardian.

New York-based Guardian reporter Ed Pilkington spoke to Robin Mizrahi (pictured), the journalist whose National Enquirer 2005 expose was spiked after pressure from Cosby attorneys. (Details of this pressure and editorial flip, which resulted in the piece being replaced with a more straightforward Cosby denial, were documented in the Andrea Constand civil lawsuit.) The original Enquirer story centered around the civil suit’s “Jane Doe No. 5:”

Mizrahi made contact with Beth Ferrier, who alleged that she too had been drugged and sexually molested by the entertainer. The Enquirer brought Ferrier to Los Angeles from her home in Denver, where she was then working as a model, and Mizrahi interviewed her and arranged for her to undergo a lie detector test.

Transplanted Photographer Fashions Unique Rogues’ Gallery

For many years, Tom LeGoff was based in New York City and making a large part of his living with celebrity portrait work. However, now that he’s an MFA student at the University of Louisville, he has pointed the camera at some famous folks there.

Running through December 4 at Mo McKnight Howe‘s Revelry Boutique Gallery, “Louisville Noir” filters notable locals – including the mayor, Greg Fischer – through the prism of familiar film noir characters. From a recent report by WFPL 89.3 FM:

LeGoff started shooting portraits for this collection in October 2013 after he working on a darker project for a magazine. LeGoff said the magazine’s editors ultimately wanted him to change his vision to something more open and cheerful.

A Long Way from Knoxville in a Nutshell

When Chris Whittle co-founded the magazine Knoxville in a Nutshell with Phillip Moffitt and several others, the Etowah, Tennessee native could only dream of The Hamptons. All these years later, Whittle, who went on to serve as publisher of Esquire, is responsible for what is being reported as the area’s dreamiest residential listing yet.

WhittleEstate

Per the Wall Street Journal and The Real Deal, Whittle and his wife are selling the East Hampton property they have owned since 1989 for $140 million:

The 11.2-acre estate includes a 10,000-square-foot, six-bedroom Georgian Revival shingle-style house and more than 1,100 feet of water frontage.

Who Should Play Helen Gurley Brown?

It’s still a long way from a big-screen sure thing. But as reported by Deadline EIC Mike Fleming Jr., Fox2000 has optioned the 2015 HarperCollins book Enter Helen: The Rise And Reign Of The Original Cosmo Girl, by Brooke Hauser.

CosmoBrownSlide

The editors of Cosmopolitan reacted by noting some of the great quotes (like the one above) that are first-draft worthy. We’re more fixated on which star should-could play Gurley Brown.

The possibilities are almost endless. Reese Witherspoon, gathering awards momentum currently with Wild, could die her hair. Shannen Doherty might engineer a career renaissance by combining some facial resemblances with Oscar-worthy hair extensions. And Nicole Kidman could drop the accent.

Now Boarding: A Michelin Three-Star Chef

AndreasCaminadaSwissAirlinesThe last few tweets from this airline account are all extremely convincing reasons to @FlySWISS.

Aboard a Swiss International Air Lines flight from Zurich to New York arriving at JFK around 12:30 p.m. today is Michelin three-star chef Andreas Caminada (pictured). He was recruited to personally oversee in-flight food and drink worthy of his establishment Schauenstein Schloss, set inside an 18th century castle 90 minutes outside of Zurich and rated one of the world’s Top 50 sit-down joints by Restaurant magazine. Sure beats a bag of peanuts and a can of “that will be one Euro, please” soda.

From a recent Q&A with Caminada:

The Financialist: What would you consider your most surprising dish?

Caminada: Sometimes our restaurant guests are wary of certain ingredients. We don’t force anyone to eat anything, but we do encourage them to be open-minded about foods they may only think they don’t like. For instance, we have a halibut with onions prepared five different ways on the menu that has converted some guests who were suspicious of onions. They realize that as long as you don’t eat them raw, onions are mild and very pleasant, whether sautéed in red wine, whole roasted, or fried to a crisp.
