W: July Issue

0707_cover (Small).jpg

Kevin West, in July’s W, explores celebrity chefs as they wend their ways westward. Tom Colicchio, Mario Batali, Carolynn Spence, Laurent Tourondel–they all love the long growing season, the stars, the weather. But do they love us?

West also spends some time with Mr. Show Tunes himself, John Travolta. Travolta’s in Hairspray the musical, was in Grease, and grew up loving musicals. Travolta is pretty candid about Scientology, and West doesn’t suck up.

There’s also very cute chart/dartboard on Billionaire Bachelors, data complied by Ana Maria Wilson. Google’s Larry Page isn’t quite the richest, but he’s the most attractive, which isn’t saying much. The 24 year old prince is cute, but sort of a lightweight. Looks like he might love show tunes.
