Gossip Cop Shoots Down Kris Jenner Response to Daniel Craig

On a veracity scale of one to a hundred, it turns out this particular story does not even merit a 007.

UK rag mag Heat sparked an Internet firestorm with an item about Kris Jenner angrily responding to some Kardashian sisters criticism voiced by actor Daniel Craig in the January 2012 issue of British GQ. Something about the need for a real-man apology.

Rather than re-purpose the harangue and pass it on, Gossip Cop did something novel; they contacted Jenner’s camp to confirm-deny:

A rep for Jenner tells Gossip Cop the story is “100 percent NOT TRUE.” We’re told Heat “just made up that whole article.” Gossip Cop has reached out to Heat for comment.

Tablet Editor Jesse Oxfeld Takes On Theatre Reviewing Duties At The Observer

observerlogo.jpgJesse Oxfeld, the current executive editor for online Jewish magazine Tablet and former editor at Mediabistro.com, Gawker and New York magazine, is taking on a new title: theater critic.

Last week, New York Post theater columnist Michael Riedel revealed that Oxfeld would be assuming the critic’s role at The New York Observer, after the paper’s longtime theater critic John Heilpern stepped down from his post.

Oxfeld, a self-proclaimed “theater obsessive,” told FishbowlNY that he “fell backwards” into the Observer‘s critic spot, “which is ridiculous and fun and a classic Broadway plotline,” he said.

Earlier this year, Oxfeld jumped at the chance to do theater coverage for the Observer as part of the paper’s plan to expand its culture coverage under new editor Tom McGeveran. But since the summer is a slow time in the theater world, Oxfeld only had the chance to write one review before Heilpern decided to depart. Now instead of playing second fiddle to Heilpern, Oxfeld will primarily take on meaty Broadway show reviews.

New ‘Bond’ Not Shaken Or Stirred

The new James Bond flick, “Quantam of Solace,” is not exactly bowling the critics overrQuantumofSolace.jpg. After “Casino Royale” introduced Daniel Craig as the new, suave, stunningly spectacular Bond, his follow-up is leaving the critics cold.

Variety’s Derek Elley sums it up nicely: “Played with a cold, mechanical efficiency that recalls the ‘Bourne’ movies, with almost no downtime or emotional hooks, ‘Quantum’ will find some solace in beefy initial returns but looks unlikely to find a royale spot in Bond history or fans’ hearts.”

Directed by Marc Forster, the film is still expected to blaze the box office. Perhaps not with the same power as the last one.

This Bond fan, however, will most assuredly go.
