Gandolfini Attacks #1 Fan! See who else he's a #1 Fan of..
Sporting a grizzly beard and wary with jet lag, Gandolfini had just stepped off a red-eye flight from L.A. after Sunday night's SAG awards when autograph hound Jason Ertischek, 24, of Brooklyn approached him with a piece of paper and pen in hand. "Can I be a 'Sopranos' baby?" Ertischek asked the star in a whiny, tough-guy accent. Gandolfini, with new wife Deborah Lin by his side, ignored Ertischek as paparazzi snapped away. Then the hulking actor suddenly whipped around and smushed the man's face with his hand. Click here for the rest of the New York Post report.Two weeks ago this same opportunist gave Katherine Heigl a gift of Nicorette patches. Check out the video with the #1 fan handing her the boxes. (I think TMZ is making a fortune off this kid) http://www.tmz.com/2008/01/16/katherine-heigl-ready-to-patch-things-up/
I wrote about this same "autograzzi" last July after the last celebrity he stalked told me about the incident you won't believe:

GUCCI AND HUGHE GO GAGA FOR NEW YORK
Confessions is winding down as we gear up for NYC's Fall Fashion Week 2008. I have been sending letters to the houses day and night, doing extensive research to determine all the right parties for me to cover and preparing my equiptment for intensive coverage for my agency and for my readers. One of the most exciting events I hope to cover is the Gucci/Mawli/Madonna event next Wednesday. I haven't heard if I am in yet, but my fingers are crossed.
With its largest flagship in the world opening on Fifth Avenue during New York Fashion Week, complete with a sparkling charity bash hosted by Madonna on February 6, the Italian house launched today an online valentine to the Big Apple. The site, with a cute URL of Gucci Loves NY, offers a preview of the massive retail temple--designed by Gucci Creative Director Frida Giannini and celebrity architect James Carpenter. It also features Madonna's "I Love New York" as soundtrack; a Google map with Frida and designer Mark Lee's favorite shops, eateries, nightclubs and other haunts; pics and entries from established bloggers and, well, whomever wants to contribute. Gucci will add the best entries to the map and the four top posts will score a limited-edition Gucci Loves NY handbag.
As usual I will try and do entries of my days events, although they might not always include photos. I leave on Thursday to pick up my credentials at the Tents. Oh and I am attending the DVF show with my friend Kati.

HEATH LEDGER DEAD, it's not supposed to be his turn
from 1/28/06 entry- BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN WITH HEATH LEDGER & JAKE GYLLENHAALNEED need I say more. Saw it 2xs. The 2nd time was much better as I really paid attention to what they were saying. I saw Heath Ledger at the premiere, but missed a good shot when he was signing for the autograzzi's and ignored the one fan truly there for him, I do have a nice picture of his and Michelle's back and head. A few frigid weeks later I saw him leaving GMA. He had just been nominated for a Golden Globe a few minutes before, I wished him well (I was proabably the first fan to do so, do I get a toaster? (BB should win for best picture) The best line in any romance movie has to be “I wish I knew how to quit you,” a frustrated Jack Twist (Jake Gyllenhaal) tells his not-so-easy lover, Ennis del Mar (Heath Ledger).

NYC FASHION WEEK FALL 2008 IS UPON US, BUT WHERE'S HEATHERETTE on the SCHEDULE?
Besides photographing the going ons every fashion season, I also trade in 50,000 points to attend my favorite show during Fashion Week... "Put your finger on a map of downtown New York City and you can feel the pulse of Heatherette. Richie Rich and Traver Rains have created a lifestyle brand that truly cultivates the popstar in everyone. Glitter, sequins, and dreams have driven Heatherette every step of the way, transforming them from the quintessential downtown buzz brand to a respected and revered player in the fashion industry. Heatherette will take you from the red carpet to the street, uptown downtown and every stop along the way. “THIS IS HEATHERETTE!”(AP Photo)

Trevor Raines and Ritchie Rich with a few young fans
This year they'll be no Heatherette, Richie Rich, Trevor Raines or Paris as Heatherette is not on the schedule. Say it ain't so!" Yours truly is done. I absolutely adore, adore, adore this collection and the show it is a highlight of Fashion Week. Reports have come in that the duo is not commenting on why they are canceling the show but are promising to return in September and will be around for their M.A.C. for Heatherette launch this Spring. There are also rumors of them having an after-party this season, even without the show. I think I need to lay down.
So this year I have opted for Diane von Furstenburg
Until September my Heatherette friends...

Britney Spears flees her family and flies to NYC
Looks like I might have to visit the Big Apple this weekend...
Britney Spears flees her family BY CORKY SIEMASZKODAILY NEWS STAFF WRITER Thursday, January 10th 2008, 4:00 AM Troubled pop tart Britney Spears skipped Los Angeles with her boyfriend on Wednesday night and flew here to avoid a planned intervention by her family later this week, sources close to her said. Pals said she hopped a private jet in Van Nuys with paparazzo boyfriend Adnan Ghalib and took off for Teterboro Airport in New Jersey, where the couple landed last night. Where they went from there wasn't immediately known.Britney is a huge seller. In fact just yesterday the LA Associated Press sent a memo to it's staff that if anyone has anything about Britney, be it a news article, a photo, a rumor, that it should be sent out on the wire. Sadly maybe it's a "Death Watch". In an internal email issued this afternoon, Los Angeles Associated Press assistant bureau chief Frank Baker notified his staff of a major policy change."Now and for the foreseeable future," he wrote, "virtually everything involving Britney is a big deal." OMG, did you hear? Britney is a BIG DEAL, y'all! Nervous breakdowns are totes the most efficient way to achieve household name status. (Source: Gawker)

PHOTO COVERAGE OF MAYOR MICHAEL NUTTER GREETING THE CITIZENS OF PHILADELPHIA
Newly sworn-in Mayor Michael Nutter hosted an open house at City Hall Tuesday to meet the residents of Philadelphia on his first full day in office. The meet and greet was scheduled from 4 p.m. until 8 p.m., but lasted much longer than the scheduled time ending at about 10PM. Those who attended had the opportunity to meet the mayor while enjoying performances from area school bands as well as Philadelphia pretzels and Tastykakes. Sightings include Joe Fraizer, the Philly Skyline team, and maybe Bjork?
