Is Jane Seymour—last seen as Lady Brett Ashley in The Sun Also Rises—putting on royal airs? Nope, she's merely attending Muppeteer Jim Henson's third annual masked ball at New York's Waldorf-Astoria. The man behind the not-so-bonny Prince Charles mask is her own Prince Charming, husband and business manager David Flynn.
Can it be? Joan Rivers blushing? Well, perhaps—she did just peek under the skirts of a couple of Marilyn Monroe impersonators (one of them male). The tableau heralded a video shoot at New York's Area nightclub for Boy George's longtime pal, a guy named Marilyn, who recently had his blond-tipped locks cropped short. "The hair was too camp," he says. "I don't like looking like an arch-gay. Now masculine is in." Apparently, the singer now wishes to be regarded as just another macho guy named Marilyn.
Wall of fame
Used to be, fellas hung moose heads on the wall. These days, it's rock 'n' roll trophies. That's why Eddie Van Halen—with wife Valerie Bertinelli looking on—donated his customized Kramer guitar to N.Y.'s Hard Rock Cafe, whose walls abound with rock memorabilia. Although Van Halen is currently taking a break from touring, his guitar will continue on without him to other Hard Rocks in London and Stockholm.
Attending the L.A. premiere of Turk 182! were Timothy Hutton—the film's star—and his rubber-lipped pal, actress-comedienne Sandra Bernhard. A sentimental tale set in New York, Turk was proclaimed a turkey by the critics. Bernhard, alas, agrees. "It is not a great movie," she says, although she thought Hutton was "fantastic." And in real life? Theirs, says Bernhard, is "a burgeoning friendship."
