ROMA’S FAMILY VACAY
Malibu beauty Roma Downey has been stepping into spring with a little jet setting R and R with the family. She’s been saying “cheers” to London and “bongiorno” to Venice and Rome. She treated her kids to a tour of the usual sights like the London Eye and and a private water taxi trip on the Grand Canal of Venice. And, oh yes — there was that audience with the pope!
As we all know, Roma is a wonder woman and even managed to make it back to Malibu for her birthday party on Cinco de Mayo. Olé!
CRUISING WITH FRAN
While Roma was soaking up the sights, her close pal Fran Drescher was away at sea. Fran was busy organizing a Cabaret Cruise to benefit her Cancerschmancer organization.
The glittering New York City skyline served as the backdrop for the cruise an exclusive, all-VIP experience with cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, dinner with Fran and some of her dearest friends, followed by a night of New York’s finest cabaret talent. They were all aboard the luxurious Hornblower Infinity, one of the city’s premiere concert venues.
BO GOES TO THE DOGS
Animal lover Bo Derek has spent the last few months working on her latest “pet” project. She’s been howling the praises of the first annual Beverly Hills Dog Show. See the fur fly as she looks over 166 breeds competing for best in show. Whether it’s Allie the Pembroke Welsh Corgi or Ripcord the Doberman Pinscher, these are top dogs to watch.
A BOLD FRONTIER
Malibu’s Pierce Brosnan has been busy with work, but he did manage to squeeze in a little “me time” with longtime love Keely.
The two took a romantic trip up to Santa Barbara wine country where they looked at some wonderful architecture, drank some great wine and “just listened to the sounds of each other’s voices.” No wonder they’ve been married so long.
One reason for the short getaway is that Pierce has been busy on his new western production called “The Son.”
At 63, the former Bond man looks as good as ever. His new television drama is his first since the old “Remington Steele” days of the 1980s. In this sure fire western, Pierce plays Texas cattle baron Eli McCullough.
As a boy, Eli was held captive by the Comanche. Now, in 1915, he knows where the money is and that’s in oil.
Based on the New York Times best seller and Pulitzer Prize-nominated novel, “The Son” is an intriguing multi-generational saga which spans 150 years and three generations of the McCullough family, which moves from good-natured innocence to calculated violence.
So, if you want a taste of the old frontier, tune in and see how Eli’s ruthless quest for power spans the generations and make the McCulloughs one of the richest dynasties in the Lone Star State. Yee-ha!
