"Victoria’s character whipped out her baton to hit me and came close to impaling my eye," James says. "For three 15-hour-long days, we were fighting, pulling hair, doing wire work, being thrown into walls, punching, kicking, shoving each other — it was pretty fun! We decided we were going to make our fight scenes the best fight scenes and I got to run up the wall a couple of times and jump off doing back-spinning kicks. You never grow up thinking you’re going to do something like that, but then all of a sudden you are doing it and it’s incredible!" Sure, sure. And so what if your back aches all the way to the bank?

Katie Couric, Chappy Morris, Lauren Thierry and her husband, Jim Watkins, are co-chairing an evening they are calling "Pillow Talk." The party will be held at the Abigail Adams House on May 20 and will honor famous interior designer Mario Buatta. The idea is to raise money for the NYCLI School, one of the nation’s premier institutions for the education of autistic children. The night will feature an auction of luxurious pairs of pillows from fabrics and trim donated by Schumacher and designed by those such as Howard Slatkin, Joanne de Guardiola, Richard Mishaan, Victoria Hagen, Matthew David, Lisa Jackson and Jamie Drake. Among the sponsors are Architectural Digest and Time Warner, and the committee includes Chuck Scarborough, Rosanna Scotto, Sue Simmons, Royce Pinkwater, Elizabeth Vargas and Al Roker of your TV and mine.
