Debbie cooled off later in the dressing room where a photographer from a French magazine convinced her to take everything off for some pictures he was doing of her, explaining in broken English that ze panties take away from ze symmetry of ze photographs. How do you say ze snake oil in French? Meanwhile, the model Roshumba, also in the dressing room, yelled at the male editors and photographers skulking about, "This is not a peep show -- get the hell out!" And they did. Hail, Roshumba!
As for the lovely Maria Snyder, maybe her romance with Michael Mailer hasn't cooled, just been off the burner for a while. Mailer's been in Los Angeles for the last few months writing "The Butcher Store," a movie about boxing he's trying to get papa Norman to direct, but papa is a busy man. Whatever, at Maria's party after her show, there was Michael, all smiles and superlatives about the show. The two even indulged in a bit of public display of affection. Thank you for that.
Shakira and Michael Caine are in New York for a whirlwind few days, Michael to hit the talk shows in conjunction with his just-completed NBC miniseries, "World War II: When Lions Roared" (Michael plays Josef Stalin, of all cuties), while the lovely Shakira hit the Donna Karan show. They both hit Jackie Mason's "Politically Incorrect" Broadway show, which has audiences hysterical with laughter and rolling on the floor. Today, Michael leaves for Florida to search for a Sunshine State residence, where he and Shakira can bask and bathe in the sea without benefit of ze paparazzi.
