(NON)DINING WITH CELEBS
This appeared yesterday in Cindy's column, so the link is already timed out; hence, no link. I decided to post it anyway. Cindy has a way with words, and I love hearing how *stars* starve themselves. Except Twitney Rears, that is. Makes you wonder why anyone goes to any trouble with food prep in Hollywood, doesn't it. I mean, think of all those starving Ethiopians who would positively die to nosh on those discarded salad fixin's which Joan Rivers wasted. And think of the wa$ted co$t of all that wa$te!
Cindy Adams on dining with celebs:
So let me tell you the thrill of dinner with Kathy Griffin, her husband and Joan Rivers. Joan, thinner than those scalpels the plastic surgeons use on her, doesn't eat after 2 o'clock. Her main dish was salad "without the bacon bits, ham, tongue, cheese and anchovies." Basically, we're talking grass and tomatoes. Her first course? Asparagus. She ate half. I vacuumed up the other half. With only iced tea, Kathy's entire meal was Caesar salad. And she had leftovers. Her computer consultant husband, Matt Moline, recently weighed 300. He's now 190. He lost it all in five months on a special diet plan. I spilled more than he ate.
Nobody had bread. Nobody had dessert. Nobody but me consumed over 11 calories.
