Sean...Sean: Madonna's Wedding Dress Is Up For Grabs Comments (0)

Madonna

The big Julien's auction of many Madonna items is coming in November. Looking through the catalogue, I was most interested in those newly-leaked (apparently from here!) Herb Ritts portraits, mainly wondering where they came from. Of course, the gem of the auction is Madonna's first-wedding dress, which I have it on good authority comes from...Sean Penn. Maybe to raise cash for Haiti?

Check out the auction here.

Hold Me Closer, Tony Danza: A Trip To The Broadway Flea Market Comments (0)

PackageJudging from the front view, I'd say there was some truth in advertising.

I had fun at today's Broadway Flea Market, where hundreds of thousands of dollars are raised in a single day for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, but I did have a particularly nerdy problem that sort of blew me away momentarily.

I went because (1) You can always find fun stuff to buy, cheap and (2) They always have stars selling autographs and photo ops. This year, the only two stars I wanted were Patrick Wilson and David Hyde Pierce, and both were in the first block, meaning they were signing autographs from 11AM to 11:50AM, then would be posing for photos (you're supposed to pick one or the other...never been a fan of how this is organized).

Got there early, stood in line, then was told—SURPRISE!—Tony Danza had shown up and would do photos for 50 bucks! So worth it. Never met him, often...thought of...him growing up. Who's the boss? Tony Danza was, more than once, in my gaydreams. So I signed up for all three and they pulled me to get David (at first they said he would only pose with Bebe Neuwirth, whom I've already met, and then when they saw my money slipping away, they locked him in for a single). Took forever because for some reason, they were escorting people up to get their autographs done during the photo period. I kept looking around and saw Andy Mientus and others doing their photo ops, but was resolute I would not miss Patrick or Tony.

When it came time, no one wanted to say, “Miss Neuwirth, please step out of the picture,” least of all I (has anyone ever said that???), so I got her free.

I went back into the line, only to be told Tony had done his very few photos and was done. I freaked out, offering to pay extra, and they confirmed he'd left. I was so mad. I know, I know—focus on getting a job and paying for food, Matt...Tony is around often, Matt—but it was disheartening. I felt like “Angela” almost getting a kiss from “Tony” in an early episode, unaware it wouldn't be consummated for many seasons. So then I said, “Well, when is Patrick doing his?” “Oh, he's done, too.”

I lost it.

DragI was wigging out when told Tony Danza had exited the area.

Losing it inspired the harried volunteers to find it—they charged me double (so much for the free Bebe!), but they got me a dedicated pic with Patrick.

Patrick Wilson is just a handsome creature and a strapping guy. We did our shot and I cooed about Little Children, a stunning film, and then I had to tell him the one Patrick Wilson story I have:

HEALTHY Price Tag Comments (0)

Madonna-Healthy

Madonna's iconic HEALTHY/SWIMMER crop top from the mid-'80s was apparently gifted by her to her ex-manager Freddy DeMann's daughter at the time. The all-growed-up recipient just auctioned it off with Julien's Live, and the lot (a pair of shoes she maybe wore in the Who's That Girl film were included, and are of nominal value) realized a winning bid of $15,000.

It's cheap if you have the bread and want the shirt. The shirt.
