First we’ll start with a celebrity. Actor James McAvoy was M Night Shyamalan’s annual Halloween bash called Shyamaween, which was held Saturday night at The Fillmore, at the Foundry. McAvoy is starring in the upcoming M Night film called “Split”; it was during that shoot he met production assistant Lisa Liberati
Since the filming ended nearly a year ago, James has been spotted all over town, in Northern Libs, around Rittenhouse Square at 30th Street Station. I like that he’s smitten with a
Philly Girl.  Split opens January 20, 2017

No more AMOR at the Art Museum, Grace Kelly Museum News, Celebs in Philly & a Halloween Question

Good super Sunday morning. Get out, no really get out and enjoy this day. I’m going for a walk right now, then heading to Ian and Jamie’s Wedding. What a great day for a White Wedding!
Let’s chit chat Philly Gossip Sunday Morning

 

Amor

No more AMOR at the Philadelphia Art Museum
Unceremoniously the Philadelphia Art Commission has removed the AMOR by Robert Indiana Margot Berg, the city’s public art director, told me earlier this month
that the beloved sculpture would appear at the Sisters City Park and Logan Cafe in 2017, probably with a terrific ceremony.

The Grace Kelly home will not be a public museum.
It’ll be restored and will then can be seen by appointment only especially for visiting Monégasque citizens a family member tells me.
The Prince enjoyed seeing the house on Tuesday, and remarked to those gathered that it was exactly how he remembered it but much smaller.

(BTW Kristin Foote is not my source, I just liked her FB post.)

Philly native and former NBAer Cuttino Mobley stopped by Rumor last night, and posed for a photo with legendary doorman Tee Fish.

Martin Short finally got to perform on the stage of the Academy of Music stage this past weekend, after his show in January at the Academy Ball was cancelled because of nearly 20 inches of snow. He was joined by good friend Steve Martin and they both posed with Alicia Vitarelli who had a cameo in their production.

 

Amor

Dish of the week: Octopus at Fine Palate. Plus get the Baked Alaska for dessert.

I ran a question on my FB page for the best time to cut off trick or treaters. Looks like everyone agrees 8PM.
Monday I will have a post of notables in the best Halloween costumes.

Taylor Kinney with South Philly Girlfriend Alanna DiGiovanni Photo Emerges, Loving,

Happy Thursday Afternoon, and welcome to another edition of Philly Gossip. Since I posted the Page Six article yesterday on all my social media about Lady Gaga’s ex-fiancé Taylor Kinney and his “new” girlfriend, South Philly’s Alanna DiGiovanni, I’ve been bombarded with photos and stories from people who know her. A lot of people tell me she’s a home town girl, close to her family, super nice and everyone said she’s a good friend.  First I said she was a radiologist, wrong, that’s a doctor my readers tell me. She actually works in radiology. OK
(Don’t try and look for her on Social Media, she’s completely deleted her online life, even her 2nd name which was still active over the weekend as i found her friends tagging her in photos.)

Taylor

They also tell me Taylor and her are just friends. They met last July 2015, when Taylor and Lady Gaga were in AC for a Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett concert. Taylor and Alanna began
following each other on instagram and kept in touch that way. At some point they began seeing each other in person. Last weekend Taylor, and a friend, and Alanna and her friend went to Austin, Texas, together to attend the Formula One race and Taylor Swift concert where the above photograph was taken. That’s Taylor and Alanna on the left. She kinda looks like Lady Gaga. BTW I bought Joanne, and I LOVE IT. It’s a different genre of singing, but it’s deep and compassionate. The Daily Mail reports that Lady Gaga and Taylor are working to get back together, and I hope that is true. None of the other photos indicate that the Taylor/Alanna friendship is anymore than that, even though it is a bit odd that he’s hanging out with a gal he met at a club last summer, shortly after he broke off his engagement to a gal he was in love with for 5 years.

Taylor

My friend at the Union League tells me they caught the guy who broke the Union League steps at the junk yard. The 6 foot piece of brass would only have
brought in $40 because it was hollow, plus there was concrete inside which was there to make it more durable in case people sat on it. Can you imagine
how heavy it was to carry. Sadly the steps will cost $100ks to fix, and it’ll take time, at least until spring of 2017. BUT there will be celebrations and dedications when it
comes time to unveil the brand new railing and brand new pictures .

Taylor

Congrats to Philly’s Kristen Welker, she’s from my neighborhood Fairmount.

In 1967, Richard (Joel Edgerton) and Mildred (Ruth Negga) Loving took their case to the Supreme Court after violating a Virginia law that prohibits interracial marriage. The movie on their battle opens next Friday, November 4.

Speaking of Fairmount, what are you and the kids doing this weekend?
