If you’ve heard this one already, don’t stop me because I want to hear it again myself. Nicole Kidman and Renée Zellweger are planning a very special Thanksgiving this year. Although they are in the countryside of Romania shooting a film about the American Civil War, adapted from the bestseller "Cold Mountain," they are determined to make a traditional hot meal for the cast and crew, which includes their costar, Jude Law. Nic and Renée are flying in frozen turkeys and all the trimmings, which might have proven a bit tricky since the Balkan country has strict rules importing food stuffs.

But the girls have used their considerable charms to get their way — whatever that means. Renée will make her special stuffing and Nicole is tying on an apron to bake fresh biscuits. Lucky Jude has only to eat and ogle. Yes, yes, I know he’s married.



News from Monaco. Charlotte Casiraghi, the beautiful 16-year-old daughter of Princess Caroline, is fast becoming one of the best equestrians of her generation. She has an abiding passion for the sport and dreams of competing in the Olympics one day. While she was training for the Grand Prix in Le Mans, France, last week, she was thrown from her horse and knocked unconscious, giving her family a terrible scare. The more so because her father, Stefano Casiraghi, was killed in a speedboat competition 12 years ago. Charlotte recovered quickly and competed the very next day, but she was off her mark and didn’t do as well as she wished. Still, the very fact that she got back on her horse shows what she’s made of. Princess Grace, the grandmother she never knew, would have been proud. Just a thought — has Prince William ever met Charlotte Casiraghi?



What’s all this about Fergie’s wanting more children? She already has two daughters, Beatrice, 14, and Eugenie, 12 — but says that’s not enough and she may even adopt, with or without a husband. That might be a sticky wicket but that’s never stopped her before, has it?



It was all terribly swell at the New York Public Library Lions Benefit Gala Monday night, with such chairmen as Annette and Oscar de la Renta, Princess Firyal and Lionel Pincus, and Liz and Felix Rohatyn. Brooke Astor was the honorary chairman for the evening and 500 guests showed up to honor Pulitzer Prize-winning authors Robert A. Caro and David Levering Lewis, Tony Award winner Julie Taymor, and choreographer Christopher Wheeldon. The glamorous standouts of the evening were Princess Firyal, as ever, Lynn Nesbit and Eliza Reed Bolen.
