The Places Celebrities Love
"I come here like it's an event. Some people go to the art museum; some people go to other cultural activities. For me, this is the cultural event of the season—coming to Bergdorf's...It's a cultural extravaganza!"
"The water—thick, almost like a fireman's hose—comes down on your head and it relaxes your shoulders. It hits you on your head and the back of your neck, and literally, the water takes the tension away from your body."
Belle Gray is the brainchild of another celebrity—Lisa Rinna of Melrose Place fame! Lisa and her husband, former L.A. Law heartthrob Harry Hamlin, named the store after their two daughters. Harry says, "It really came from our hearts as a joint effort, and I think that's why the vibe...is so great."
"I want them to come in here and like the atmosphere and like the clothes and have a good experience."
Here's to clothes!
"But this is the reason why we opened the store," says Harry. "She's such an addictive shopper, I figured, what better thing to do than to get it all wholesale?"
But Central Park is only Sting's second favorite place to be, he says. His favorite place to be is in his wife Trudie's arms!
"I think it's a very romantic place. When I brought the women from The Bachelor here, it gave a chance for us to have great conversation. I definitely started to really factor in how I felt they would fit into my life.
"This place has been a part of my life for so long, and I'd love to be able to share it with someone."
The Plymouth Theater, in particular, holds a special place in her heart. As a child, Rosie would wait by the stage doors at the theaters to see the performers, and would dream of becoming a movie star. Now, she's the producer of the musical Taboo, starring Boy George! Taboo opens November 13.
Sette Mezzo is like "a piece of Italy," Oprah says. Since she first discovered the restaurant 12 years ago, Oprah's always gotten the same meal: scallops and artichokes. And even though her best friend Gayle has tried to encourage her to try new restaurants, Oprah says she "always ends up right back here, sitting in the front window, because it's the best. It's the best. My favorite."
Across the street from the St. Louis Cathedral, where he and model Jill Goodacre married, sits the world-famous Café Du Monde. It's known for its coffee and beignets—fried fritters covered with powdered sugar. For brunch, Harry always goes to Brennan's, where he gets sherry-infused turtle soup, eggs hussarde covered with Hollandaise sauce, and bananas foster, which was invented at the restaurant! And, if he's got some room for more, Harry heads to Acme Oyster Bar, where he loads up crawfish.
