Mika Brzezinski, Miss USA and a Mysterious Stephen Baldwin Sighting

1003_mockup.gifMaybe it was today’s dreadful weather (Will this winter from hell ever end?) or perhaps some boldface names can’t bring themselves to leave the sunny West Coast after the Oscars, but the scene at Michael’s today was pretty much a celebrity-free zone unless you count the random sighting of Stephen Baldwin. The more low-key Baldwin made a curiously brief appearance in the dining room (he didn’t even sit down) before leaving, so we never got the chance to ask him what he thinks about brother Alec Baldwin‘s war with The New York Post, but we did try. There was, however, an interesting mix of bold faced names including police commissioner Ray Kelly and the newly crowed Miss USA Nana Meriwether who, despite leaving her sash and crown at home, looked every inch the pageant winner. Being almost six feet tall certainly helps stand out in a crowd.

I was joined today by Woman’s Day editor-in-chief Susan Spencer and Hearst executive director of public relations Mimi Crume Sterling. Having never met these smart, savvy gals before, we bonded over a talk about our daughters. Susan, like me, is mother to an elementary-school-aged daughter adopted from China; Mimi has a little girl and is about to give birth to her first son any minute (we had our fingers crossed she’d make it through lunch!). We all agreed parenthood is an unending source of material.

Susan Spencer and Diane Clehane

Since joining the magazine in February of last year from Time Inc.’s All You, Susan has made some interesting changes to the magazine. “I’ve fallen in love with the reader,” she says. This is not your mother’s Woman’s Day, although Susan is mindful of the generational connection between readers of the 75-year-old Hearst title. “Some readers have been reading the magazine for 60 years, and now their daughters and their daughters’ daughters are reading it,” she explained. When asked just who is the Woman’s Day reader, Susan told me: “She’s the ‘Average Josephine’ — the receptionist, the administrative assistant, the teacher, the nurse. These are the women who I consider to be the backbone of America.” That doesn’t mean, however, these women (more than half work outside the home) are not interested in fashion and the good things in life. Just the opposite. “These women have a lot of joy in their life. They embrace positivity,” says Susan. “That’s why the title of the magazine is so perfect for them. It’s about her day and the joy she gets out of it.” To tap into that, Susan retooled the fashion pages focusing more on value in all its iterations. “Our reader doesn’t want to see a great shoe and then find out it’s $300 or even $150. It has to make sense for her life.” In fact, “Value Tags” appear throughout the magazine to highlight steals, deals and all-around great ideas.

Sharks in Venice…No Not That Venice – The One in Italy

Our thanks to Buzzfeed for bringing this to our attention.

Look it’s Stephen Baldwin. He’s not in Canada. He’s in ‘Venice’ where all the ‘Italians’ have generic foreign guy accents.

We’re just happy to see people working. Ahem.

Stephen Baldwin Promised to Move to Canada

Stephen Baldwin swore that if Barack Obama won the election, he would move to Canada. We offered it was because Baldwin thinks Canada is a refuge for anti-intellectual zealots…like he’s confusing it with Alaska.

Anyway, there’s nothing on Baldwin’s site about him packing boxes or anything. Maybe he’ll just ride out the next 70 or so days of the Bush administration before he heads north.

Because, gee, we’d hate to see such a talented actor and sincere Christian go back on his word and stay in the country. That would really be horrible.

Godspeed, Steve!

Sarah Palin on SNL

Just in case you missed it. This is the first of two sketches Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin was in at SNL. Alec Baldwin also made a cameo. Palin says that Stephen Baldwin is her favorite Baldwin brother. Stephen Baldwin has been saying he’ll move to Canada if Barack Obama is elected. He thinks Canada is a refuge for anti-intellectual, neo-conservative zealots…like he’s confusing it with Alaska.

Anyway, there’s also the Sarah Palin Rap by Amy Poehler. It’s what she’ll be noted for 50 years from now. Amy…not Sarah.

The Boom! Studios Party

comiccon01.gif We were told the Boom! Studios party was ‘where everyone was going to be’. We got there — no open bar — no food. Can it be called a ‘party’ if you’re just telling people to meet you at a bar? Ron Hogan of GalleyCat says no.

Anyway, we spotted Stephen Baldwin. We didn’t actually go looking for him he just paraded around the room a couple of times. We didn’t find him on the schedule. Saturday, Adam Baldwin (no relation) is on a panel for the series Chuck. We don’t know what Stephen is doing here. Didn’t ask. Actually, now that we think of it…don’t care.

Hard to believe, but Celebrity Apprentice was greenlit before the WGA strike. And the “celebrities”? Trace Adkins, Carol Alt, Stephen Baldwin, Nadia Comaneci, Tiffany Fallon, Jennie Finch, Nely Galan, Marilu Henner, Lennox Lewis, Piers Morgan, Omarosa, Tito Ortiz, Vincent Pastore and Gene Simmons.

Omarosa to win in a final bout with Lennox Lewis. He’s too pretty to want to get beat up by her.

MTV gets Randy Jackson Presents America’s Best Dance Crew from Warner Horizon Television. The live weekly show is slated to premiere in first quarter 2008. Shot in Los Angeles, top hip-hop dance crews with face off each week.

A&E shot a pilot for Celebrity Garage Sales. Host Illeana Douglas helps her buddy celebs put on a garage sale, with all proceeds going to charity. Tom Arnold was the celeb in the pilot. Cuz who doesn’t want a piece of the magic?
