GILBERT GOTTFRIED RIP — I first met Gilbert Gottfried at a charity-event at NYC’s Palm West restaurant (at their Celebrity Server event; where the celebs served as waiters). He couldn’t have been nicer or funnier. The Palm’s pr-man David Salidor introduced us and we talked for quite a bit. He sided up to Micky Dolenz and Tony Danza, also on hand, and they all began a huge friendship that would last for years. Danza was in a movie with Dolenz’s daughter Ami years back.
DYLAN McDERMOTT FBI MOST WANTED — Tuesday’s FBI: Most Wanted didn’t waste any time introducing Dylan McDermott as Remy Scott; the new team leader. He soldiered onto buy some pastries, then to an apartment he seemingly already had in NYC (plus an Alfa Romeo in storage). From there it was meeting his team and they were off.

81-years young Al Pacino dating 28-year old Noor Alfallah, who has been with Mick Jagger for years? God bless him. I hope she can keep up with him … Speaking of Palm West; is their former-amiable GM Chris Gilman returning? We hear he may end up at the East Hampton branch of the glittery-eatery. Stay tuned … And, I’m based in NYC and since this week’s tragic shooting, I’ve yet to see the police on a subway or in the subway station. I actually got off the subway last night, walked to the street and saw two cops sitting in their car. What does that do? Believe me, everyone here is on the edge.
