Farrah, Bonnie, and a night with Don Rickles!
I’ve been thinking about how dumb it was to leave out a tribute to Farrah Fawcett at the Oscar’s. Whoever made that decision is an idiot. Farrah did plenty of movies, plus she was a pop culture icon. Shame on the Academy – of which Farrah was a member.
A lot of you have been asking about my movie Paris Connections. It’s an original story I came up with featuring one of my favorite characters, Madison Castelli. I wrote about Madison in “L.A. Connections,” “Lethal Seduction,” and “Deadly Embrace.” She’s a strong, feisty female – a journalist with plenty of integrity and style. In my movie Paris Connections she’s played by the very talented Nicole Steinwedell, who was one of the stars of that terrific T.V. series “The Unit.” I love Nicole, she really captures the essence of Madison, and the love scenes with the very sexy Anthony Delon (French and major hot!) steam up the screen!
Paris Connections is a made directly for DVD movie, which will be sold exclusively at Tesco in England for three months before being released in America. It’s such a fun movie, all shot in Paris, and revolving around a fab fashion show and a murder!
My brother Bill arrived from London to stay with me for a couple of weeks. He’s the best. I shall try not to drag him out to dinner every night! But you know I will! It’s all research.
I was on “The Bonnie Hunt Show” last week. Bonnie is warm and hilarious, and apart from Chelsea Handler, the best female talk show host on T.V. Craig Ferguson is the best male one, I never miss his show, and I always get a buzz appearing on it.
To end a great week I went to an anniversary party for the legendary Don Rickles and his wife Barbara. A very fun evening, with many old comedians getting up to speak, and a funny bit from John Stamos and Bob Saget. Quite a night!
Weather in L.A. is coming up hot and balmy, so have a great one!
