Page Six - 1.7.10

JUST ASKING

WHICH action star was lying when he said recently he'd never have plastic surgery? The actor has obviously had his eyes done in the last year or two, judging by the way his crow's feet magically disappeared . . .
WHICH best-selling, but slow-writing, author had some help finishing his latest novel? A translator for one of the potboiler's foreign editions noticed from the shifting syntax and sentence structure that the book was penned by at least two writers . . .
WHICH heiress who married a mob-connected artist years ago is now claiming to old friends that her husband is conspiring with shady lawyers and doctors to declare her insane and seize all her money?

#1 - Sylvester Stallone? He has had so much work done it is horrifying!

#2 - Stephen King?

#3 - ???

I'm not sure about 1 & 3, but I thought Dan Brown for the 2nd

I think Dominick Dunne for #2. His last novel was way past due, took him way long to write. He was a NY society figure too, more likely Pg. 6 would know this.

Dan Brown for #2!

Except Dominick Dunn is dead.

#1 - Vin Diesel
#2 - Dan Brown
#3 - Tinsley Mortimer (recently seperated from her shady hubby)

hahahahaha isuckatblind items!

I guess Brown or King for #2. Don't care about the others.

#2 - Thomas Harris?

#2 maybe dan brown but I really don't think poor dominick dunne. He is dead; I think they stop writing blinds about you when you die(?)
#3 not Tinsley Mortimer. She is not an heiress-married money.

#1 is Bruce Willis. In a November interview he said he would never have plastic surgery.

No ideas about the other two items though!

#1 ewan McGregor?
#2 Dan Brown, the last book sucked big time
#3 No idea

# 2 is NOT Stephen King... the last thing he is is a slow writer. That guy turns out 500 page novels like they're mindless telephone call doodles. Dan Brown is a hack, it wouldn't surprise me at all if he had ghost writers helping him.

#1 I think Bruce Willis. He's obviously had work done but won't admit it. no clue on #3.

1. Bruce Willis for sure -- like someone said before, he did an interview in November saying he would never have it, and he's an action star (technically).

3. Can't be Tinsley -- her husband has more money than she did and he's incredibly well-known in the NY socialite world. No way he'd be a mob-connected artist without anyone knowing..

to anon above: look at my post above...I already posted that about Tinsley Mortimer...not sure if people read other posters first?

sistah2 said...

Who says the subject of a blind can't be dead?
Listen people , its the NYP and they only write about peeps that are in NY and well known to Manhattan. Dunne just died recently, and believe they'll be talking about him for years to come in certain NY circles.

No, I did read your comment, but as other people continue to add their $.02, I thought I'd reiterate it..sorry?

Gabby said...

1. Bruce Willis
2. Dan Brown
3. Kim Kardashian--she was married to Damon Thomas

Rachel said...

Number two is definitely Dan Brown. As an English teacher, I can attest to the frustration I felt reading "The DaVinci Code" with its grammatical errors and inconsistent tenses and story devices. I HATED the book. It's written at a 6th grade reading level, which is what most of America is comfortable at, and even written at that level, its horrid writing.

Chaos said...

Agree with Rachel - #2 is Dan Brown - read it all in a weekend, and the tone changes noticeably towards the end. Still like being hit on the head with a blunt object saying 'stop reading', 'stop reading' every page, but worse.

Mark said...

#1 - Willis or Cruise (who have both have had plastic surgery)
#2 - Dan Brown, whose new book I've heard is terrible
#3 - Zsa Zsa dahlink

Maiken said...

Thank you, Rachel, for saying that Dan Brown's book was badly written. So far I have had to run into a wall every time I try to explain how the book has poor grammar and I will not even get into the plot itself... And I am normally all for a good thriller-suspense story...
