People paid upwards of $14 million to nab the first cover shots of the dynamic newborn duo, and the issue features “19 pages of intimate family photos and the full interview with Brad and Angelina.”

This news comes to us via Just Jared, and has yet to be confirmed (so, sort of similar to John Edward’s alleged love-child news coming to us via the National Enquirer, one supposes). Anyway, the pictures will not be published this week and needless to say, all the money is probably going to charity.

We’re guessing that spring break with the kiddies kept more than a few bold face names we’ve become accustomed to seeing away from 55th and Fifth today. Luckily, some of our favorite regulars were on hand — along with the first ever (at least since I’ve been at my perch) Wednesday Anna Wintour sighting — kept us more than interested in the goings on in the dining room. But, we hear, the really big doings will be taking place this Sunday night when The Rolling Stones are coming to party with Martin Scorsese, who directed the documentary Shine A Light about the iconic rockers. If you haven’t gotten your invite, it probably just got lost in the mail…
Here’s the rundown on today’s crowd:
1. Frank Gifford and his charming daughter Cassidy enjoying a pre-theater lunch before seeing The Little Mermaid (again!). I’d met Cassidy once before when mom Kathie Lee Gifford brought the incredibly well-mannered 14-year-old to Michael’s this summer. Today, father and daughter dined alone (she sipped a Shirley Temple while he flipped through what looked like a Tiffany’s catalog!) On the way out when they stopped by to say ‘Hello,’ I asked Frank when there would be word of Kathie Lee’s all but imminent arrival at Today. Putting his hands up in mock protest, he turned to his daughter and said, “Diane wants me to talk about things I can’t talk about.” But Frank, you know I’d never tell anyone …
2. William Morris’ Wayne Kabak and a pal.
3. “Mayor” Joe Armstrong, who was nice enough to introduce me to guest, longtime pal and fellow Texan Sarah Gray Miller. The dynamic duo worked together when Joe was the founding publisher of Garden Design and Saveur and Sarah, now editor-in-chief of Oprah’s O At Home, was a media maven in training. Mr. Mayor, who knows everyone, lunched yesterday at Michael’s (where else?) with another one of his favorite Texans Lance Armstrong. He said the two of them spent part of the afternoon dishing over the stunning reports that Dick Cheney is a “distant cousin” of Barack Obama, and Hillary Clinton and Angelina Jolie are branches on the same family tree. Perhaps, says Joe, he and Lance are related to jazz great Louis Armstrong. To commemorate their possible kinship, the Mayor presented Lance with a mini statue of their may be ancestor. Between bites of his burger, Lance howled with laughter. “We love to laugh,” says Joe who is off to Texas to visit his mom Dorthadele. See you when you get back!
4. Über agent Ed Victor (looking quite literary in a black turtleneck and jacket) with Alan Grubman.
On the heels of Angelina Jolie‘s depiction of Daniel Pearl widow Mariane Pearl in A Mighty Heart, Glamour is planning a book based on the “Global Diary” columns Marian has written for the magazine. The book, In Search of Hope, is due in November from Brooklyn-based powerHouse books and will include a foreword written by Jolie. Glamour says all of the proceeds from In Search of Hope will be donated to charity.
Unlike recent egregious examples of magazine photoshoppery (see Angelina Jolie, Andy Roddick) Star‘s art department didn’t focus on Jennifer Aniston‘s guns; rather, her sunglasses and an art catalog from Los Angeles Modern Auctions.
Another day, another magazine photo-doctoring faux pas. The latest: In Touch, which apparently photoshopped out Angelina Jolie‘s veins for its latest cover. Editor Richard Spencer is unapologetic: “You’re right, we softened those veins. The arm was very, very veiny. … I think they can forgive it for the cover — unless it is a story specifically about their body. This was about her plans to expand her family.”
Meanwhile, an insider tells the New York Post that Men’s Fitness‘s doctoring of tennis star Andy Roddick‘s guns has led to an uproar in the art department, with design consultant Mary Anne Bulter resigning and staff design director John Gilman threatening to leave.
Yesterday, NBC announced that Stone Phillips would be leaving the network — a cost-cutting move that, according to USA Today, favors more versatile on-air talent than the one-dimensional Stone. Versatile, like Ann Curry, who showed some of that versatility today on Today: she made Angelina Jolie cry.
Maybe if Stone Phillips had been able to make, say, Brad Pitt cry, things would’ve been different.
Earlier this week, the revered newsweekly ran a photo exclusive showing Angelina Jolie‘s visit to the Oure Cassoni refugee camp.
Yesterday, the magazine’s Web site featured a story in which Peter Andersen, author of The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Body Language, searched photos of President Bush’s visits with Latin American leaders “for clues about the man and his mission.”
