THE WORD, OFF WISTERIA
What happens when Desperate Housewives
get together? Girl talk, of course! As the castmates gathered in L.A. Nov. 19 to fete their costume designer Cate Adair's line of handbags, FELICITY HUFFMAN trotted over to hug costar EVA LONGORIA
and gush, "You look gorgeous!" BRENDA STRONG said the same about an almost-five-months-pregnant MARCIA CROSS, who told Insider when it comes to cravings, "I'd love vanilla milkshakes every day. But I don't do it because I have to be on-camera."
DIDDY'S PINK PARTY
Still meaning to buy DIDDY and KIM PORTER a baby gift? Fear not: The $88,000 Mercedes hasn't been purchased from their registry. Nonetheless, there were gifts galore from Ga Ga Designs—a chandelier from DENZEL WASHINGTON
, cribs from LL COOL J—at their Nov. 19 baby shower in N.Y.C. As Diddy, expecting twin girls next month, told Insider, "I'm so excited to have girls, but I know I'm in trouble!"
On Nov. 14 RENEE ZELLWEGER
(above) followed up the Children's Defense Fund awards in Washington, D.C., with a stop at the 18th and U Duplex Diner, where she shared pigs-in-a-blanket with pals—then tipped $100.
Computer tosser DENISE RICHARDS
got some good-natured ribbing from her Blonde and Blonder costar PAMELA ANDERSON
. "I bought her a laptop," Anderson said at the release party for Baywatch
on DVD in Hollywood Nov. 16. "I said, 'Don't throw this at anybody.'"
What's going on with JESSICA BIEL
(left) and DEREK JETER? "They looked like they were on a date," says an onlooker at Social Hollywood Nov. 15. But when Insider later asked Jeter if he was single, he replied, "Hell, yes!"
