George Clooney Stumbles His Way Into a Great Tequila Commercial

CasamigosLogoRemember the Hollywood movie Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice? Well, thanks to a wonderful Forbes Life piece by Jennifer Kamm, we now have the full script for Rande & Cindy & George & Stacy.

Kamm’s December 15 issue interview feature is all about the personal friendship of Rande Gerber and George Clooney, and how it produced their line of premium tequila. After an extensive R&D phase, the two drank a bottle of the ready-for-market Casamigos product at the Malibu end of Gerber’s Café Habana. Smashed, they safely made their way back to Gerber’s home, where Clooney was pointed to the guest room while Gerber crashed in his son’s room:

With no sign of Gerber at 2 a.m., [wife Cindy] Crawford decided to check the guest room, where she saw a man fully clothed, reposado on top of the covers. “She gets into the bed, rubs my back, and says, ‘Hey, babe, why don’t you get undressed and into bed?’ And with that, George turned his head, and Cindy saw that it was him in there,” Gerber continues. “George thought he must’ve stumbled into the master bedroom and gotten into our bed!”

Livingly Media Relaunches Lonny.com

In 1879, a certain Brooklyn brownstone was completed in what is known as the Clinton Hill neighborhood. Today, an article about the refurbishment of that brownstone (pictured, below) is part of a clean, crisp new-look version of home-design portal lonny.com. The complete overhaul of this five-year-old brand went live at noon ET today.

“We no longer felt the need to constrain our design to mimic the shape of a print magazine,” Livingly VP of content John Newlin tells FishbowlNY via email. “Several years ago, the idea of a magazine ‘replica’ helped us communicate our mission to readers and sell advertisements to clients and partners. But now, we’re seeing 35% of Lonny readers coming to the site on mobile devices (tablets or Smartphones), and that number is growing.”

Harry Morton Kind of Regrets Pink Taco Restaurant Name

The November/December issue of Haute Living Los Angeles magazine has Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber on the cover, looking resplendent against blue-sky Malibu backdrop. To go along with that cover story, there’s also a fun interview by Laura Schreffler with Harry Morton, the 31-year-old son of Hard Rock Hotel and Cafe founder Peter Morton.

Morton lives above the Sunset Strip and his twin properties, The Viper Room and Pink Taco Mexican restaurant. He says he’s shopping a documentary series about the former to pay cable networks and admits that in hindsight, he might have done things a little differently with the latter:

“If I could go back, I would change the name,” Harry muses now of his haute Mexican eatery [chain]. “It started off as a funny idea; it was a joke at the time. But now we pride ourselves on our ability to evolve, and the food speaks for itself.”

Cindy Crawford is Now a Vlogger

First off, the name of this particular sheknows.com corner is somewhat hilarious – Mommalogues. It’s a place “where moms come to raise their voices,” and continuing with the celeb factor that started with Candace Cameron Bure in January and Mayim Bialik in March, the site has added this month the great get of Cindy Crawford.

Each celebrity guest blogger is paired with a top-line commercial sponsor. So far, Crawford, the dazzling working mom of two and wife of Rande Gerber, has posted a pair of videos about the greatest compliment she has received from her offspring and how she tends to connect with other parents.

Sheknows.com allows readers to quickly rate videos like the ones Crawford is posting with the choice of LOL!, OMG!, BAM! and WTF! At press time, BAM! is the click of choice for both Crawford entries.
