N.Y.C. Marathon: Kenyans Win Men’s and Women’s Races

Originally posted 11/03/2013 12:45PM

In a double victory for Kenya, Geoffrey Mutai has successfully defended his New York City Marathon title and Priscah Jeptoo rallied to win the women's race.

Mutai set the course record the last time the NYC Marathon was held, in 2011. Sunday's race returned after last year's cancelation because of Superstorm Sandy.

Security was also heightened after the bombings at April's Boston Marathon.

On a windy morning, Mutai had an unofficial time of 2 hours, 8 minutes, 24 seconds, well off his mark of 2:05:06 set in nearly perfect conditions.

Usher Bids $80,000 on Photo at N.Y.C. Auction, Loses to Lorraine Schwartz

Usher isn't afraid to cough up dough for charity.

The singer bid $80,000 on a Richard Avedon photograph at the Gabrielle's Angel Foundation Angel Ball in New York City on Tuesday night. But unfortunately for him, that wasn't enough!

Celebrity jeweler Lorraine Schwartz, who designed Kim Kardashian's engagement sparkler, outbid the hit maker and forked over $85,000 for the piece.

And it was all for a good cause. Money from the auction will help fund cancer research, and celebs all came out to support the foundation.

Simon Cowell's Romantic Visit to N.Y.C. for Lauren Silverman

We're used to seeing Simon Cowell, 53, as the career-driven, hard-nosed judge on The X Factor, but recently he's given us a glimpse of his softer side.

He carved time out of his busy schedule this week to visit Lauren Silverman, 37, the woman who is pregnant with his child, in New York.

Cowell, dressed in his signature white tee, alongside Silverman who was slightly more glammed up in jeans and stilettos, stopped by the Tracie Martyn penthouse spa on Tuesday. "The couple looked relaxed and happy," an onlooker says. After receiving their treatments, "they walked out of the spa looking fresh."
