Sheryl Crow reportedly had a hand in setting up John Mayer and Jennifer Aniston, and now, according to Life & Style, Crow has found a new flame for herself, too.
The magazine reports that Crow, who has a 1-year-old son named Wyatt, has been quietly dating a restaurateur from Birmingham, Ala. “They’re enjoying getting to know each other,” an insider told the magazine.
The special guy is said to be a pilot who “has been flying his plane to Nashville to see her.” The couple have kept things low-key, but the magazine reports that she might be stepping out with the new beau when she plays a May 23 show in Pelham, Ala., which isn’t far from Birmingham.
No Stern wedding ... yetNope, no nuptials yet for Howard Stern and Beth Ostrosky. Rumors that the couple might be headed to the Hamptons to swap “I dos” began to heat up when earlier this week when fans of Stern’s radio show noted that the shock jock confirmed that his wife-to-be had settled on a designer for her wedding gown. And on May 15, Stern was mysteriously absent from his radio broadcast (Stern show gadfly Ralph filled in and hosted a best-of show).
As it turns out, piecing the incidents together was nothing beyond wild conjecture. “They are not getting married this weekend,” Stern’s rep, Don Buchwald, said.
‘Lost’ star plays coy about the future
The first part of the two-part season finale of “Lost” made it clear who is and who isn’t part of the Oceanic Six, and Jin, aka Daniel Dae Kim, is part of the latter group.
No matter. Kim looked as relaxed as could be while trying on True Religion jeans at the Lucky Club in NYC. (This, despite Rainn Wilson yelling, “Those jeans make you look fat!”) “It’s been an amazing season,” Kim said. “The show is expected to be full of surprises, but things have really been surprising.”
Should fans worry about Kim’s future on the show? Kim’s only response was a coy shrug of the shoulders ... and then he was off to play “Guitar Hero” (and yes, he’s pretty good).
Denise Richards explains reality-show stance
In preparation of the May 26 premiere of “Denise Richards: It’s Complicated,” Richards spoke to Us Weekly about her decision to do a reality show, and whether it is appropriate for her daughters to be part of it.
Her ex, Charlie Sheen, legally objected to her involving daughters Sam and Lola in the show, but Richards says she just didn’t see anything wrong with involving them as other celebrities have with their kids.
“I wanted them to be represented. No one said anything when Kimora Lee Simmons put her kids on her show. Besides, we never shielded them from the media — Sam was on an episode of ‘Two and a Half Men’ when she was 8 weeks old.”
Richards said she wants the show, which will air on E!, to be a truthful representation of her life. “ I want people to know the truth: I'm a woman juggling dating, working and being a mom to two young girls. Now people can see me and judge for themselves. I have nothing to lose.”
Weekend box office
This weekend is a no-brainer: The only large-scale release is “The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian.” The fantasy flick opens in a whopping 3,800 theaters, and thanks to two weeks separating the release of “Caspian” and “Iron Man,” “Caspian” won’t lose much audience to the Robert Downey Jr. flick.
