Post Source Gurgles Up More Beyoncé-Jay Z Claims

ShutterstockBeyonceJayZ2004OscarsVulture recently asked: “Who is the Post‘s Jay Z-Beyoncé Source?” The website ran through a brief list of possibilities and invited readers to chime in via the comments with their theories on who is spilling the beans about the couple’s alleged marital problems.

Over the weekend, that source (or source(s)) was at it again. They suggested to Page Six that the pair’s “On the Run” tour – in San Francisco this week after weekend stops in LA – may not make it to Paris. The Post tattler also had this very forward-looking media tidbit:

“They’ve had discussions lately about the inevitable sit-down interview when they finally do split, and Jay’s been adamant that he doesn’t want Beyoncé sitting down with Barbara Walters or Oprah Winfrey pretending to be the victim,” the source said.

Page Six: Shia LaBeouf’s Night Quickly Went from Weird to Worse

The details of Shia LaBeouf‘s strange behavior at last night’s performance of Broadway play Cabaret are all over the Internet and TV morning shows. However, it is what happened afterwards that, if confirmed, is going to land the actor in more perilous Mel Gibson territory.

From a Page Six report by Larry Celona and C.J. Sullivan:

At the Midtown North station house, LaBeouf allegedly became belligerent, demanding the cuffs be removed. “F**k you. I’ll f**k you up!” the 28-year-old LaBeouf said, according to the sources.

Johnny Carson Musical Moving Forward

Cover_JohnnyCarsonIt was during an interview with Mediabistro last fall that Johnny Carson‘s former attorney Henry Bushkin first publicly revealed his plans for a musical based on his book Johnny Carson:

“We are in the midst of some very interesting and confidential discussions about a Broadway play with music centered around a particular year, like 1980, in Carson’s life and my life. Like a snippet. All I can say is that there’s compelling interest in that. The Broadway audience is Carson’s sweet spot. The entertainment value of it is going to be significant.”

Observer Checks In with Disgraced Page Six Reporter

All these years later, Jared Paul Stern maintains that this clothing venture was at the heart of his discussions with Ron Burkle about money. Not some sort of scandalous payola to ensure that the billionaire would receive favorable Page Six coverage.

UrbanDaddyDrivenLogoToday, Stern is the editor of Urban Daddy’s auto blog Driven. He also freelances. If one goes by Observer contributor Ben Widdicombe‘s Kennebunkport impressions, the former Post writer’s demeanor does not quite sync up with the bravado:

Today, Stern, 43, describes his life as being at “a new pinnacle.” He has toned down the film noir wardrobe and attitude – no more fedoras – but maintains a flair for haberdashery.

NY Post Says NY Post is Good for You

According to The New York Post, the New York Post — specifically, its gossip section Page Six — is good for you. Why? Because Dr. Samantha Boardman, an assistant attending psychiatrist at the Weill-Cornell Medical Center, wrote it on her blog.

“About 65 percent of people’s discussions involve gossip, and there is an evolutionary explanation for our fascination with other people’s lives,” explained Boardman. “The theory is that natural selection favors knowing as much as you can about other people in your social network, whether they are an authority figure, potential partner, teacher, friend, political ally or enemy.” Therefore, “You don’t have to feel guilty about reading Page Six anymore,” added Boardman.

So there you go. Feel free to talk behind peoples’ backs as often as possible. And read more Page Six, not less. Find out “Where it all went wrong for Rob Kardashian” right away. The more you know about rich strangers, the better off you’ll be.

In Touch Feeds the Alec Baldwin Media Beast

Shutterstock_AlecBaldwinWhat exactly did Baldwin do this time? Well, according to the In Touch Weekly exclusive, he was handcuffed by some NYPD after biking the wrong way through Manhattan and then, when stopped, not having ID.

At the end of its “still developing” story, In Touch shares two very different eyewitness accounts. For Baldwin’s sake and, in large part, our own, let’s hope the first of the two witnesses quoted is the accurate one.

Page Six has GPS details of both the arrest – East 15th and 6th Avenue – and alleged nearby two-wheel infraction:

“Alec was riding his bicycle the wrong way on Fifth Avenue this morning and, when he was stopped by police, he didn’t have ID, so he was handcuffed and arrested.”

Novelist Recounts Her Ascension to Darren Star-dom

ShutterstockDarrenStarIt started in earnest last August. As author Pamela Redmond Satran delightfully recalls in an Indiewire guest post, that’s when she was bulletin-ed into a fever pitch of professional excitement:

Google Alerts informed me that TV Land was “fast-tracking” the series Younger by Darren Star, based on the book by Pamela Redmond Satran. I was floored, because not only was the show moving forward, but they actually mentioned me and my book!

My LA agent Dana Spector had just gotten married, my NY agent was on vacation, so all my initial news came from Page Six. The fall brought more news: Sutton Foster was set to star, an inspired choice for a role that demands freshness, combined with soul and serious acting chops. Then the adorable Hilary Duff was tapped for the role of the younger colleague, giving the show big-time Hollywood cred, with Debi Mazar as the main character’s best friend – perfect, as I’d always thought of Debi as my secret best friend.

Ronan Farrow Racks Up Three Quick Strikes

RonanFarrowDaily[The following is a transcript from the FishbowlNY play-by-play booth.]

“Now batting… Ronan Farrow, the handsome young son of Mia Farrow and Frank Sinatra. Check that… Our statistician has just informed us that contrary to information circulated earlier, Ronan is in fact the son of Farrow and Woody Allen. Our apologies.”

“OK; Farrow steps into the national media box. Here’s the first pitch and, whoosh! Farrow swings for the fences and misses. Ratings for his Monday MSNBC debut averaged just 46,000 viewers.”

“Farrow is back in the box… for a called strike two! We’re not sure about that one; it looked a little outside. According the the Daily News, this unproven celebrity farm system prospect “doesn’t yet pop off the screen with the kind of distinctive personality that sets the likes of Bill O’Reilly, Rachel Maddow or Anderson Cooper apart.”"

Page Six Editor Gives NPR the 300 Sandwiches Update

By FishbowlNY’s calculations, the bread-and-butter courtship of a certain lucky guy by Page Six senior editor Stephanie Smith will be completed – assuming no holiday breaks – on January 29, 2014. Just in time for a logical, return Valentine’s Day gift.

By then, also, who knows how many media appearances Smith will have logged. Not quite 300, like the number of daily sandwiches she is famously making for her boyfriend. But certainly in the dozens, if she so chooses.

This week, Smith dropped by NPR’s NYC studios to connect with Tell Me More host Michel Martin. Responding to the Internet criticism aimed at her engagement-ring efforts, Smith urged critics to actually read her blog posts. If they do, she suggested, they’ll understand the spirit of it all:

“It’s not just a girl making all this food to earn a man’s love. This is a journey between the two of us as we continue on towards engagement. And I don’t think I’m less of a woman or a hard-charging career woman because I want to do something nice for my boyfriend.”

Richard Johnson Gets New Gossip Column at NY Post

Richard Johnson, the veteran New York Post Page Six editor, is returning to New York to start a new gossip column. In a memo obtained by Daily Intelligencer, Jesse Angelo, the Post’s publisher and editor-in-chief, said Johnson’s column “will be a mix of gossip from both coasts, society news, business and politics in the legendary style of Neal Travis.”

Johnson left his spot at Page Six in 2010 to lead the now-shuttered The Daily’s gossip section. When The Daily shut down operations, Johnson stayed in Los Angeles and acted as a correspondent for Page Six.

Johnson’s return to New York won’t lead to other changes at the PostEmily Smith remains the Page Six editor and the column maintained by Cindy Adams is staying as well.
