As we look forward to the multitude of possibilities in 2009, it's important to keep in mind that the future, while exciting, is difficult to predict. We can approach our goals with a carefully plotted precision, but even in the most calculated circumstances, sometimes things go horribly wrong. Take late night talk shows for example. The hosts do their best to keep the shows funny while maintaining the standards and practices enacted by the FCC, but that doesn’t mean they always maintain control. Sometimes the proverbial “crap” simply hits the fan.
Following Monday night's Costume Institute Gala at the Met, the big names continued to roll into NYC the following evening, as TIME magazine hosted its annual 100 Most Influential People party. While many new faces adorned the TIME party, a few select individuals had the honor of attending both.
Guests at the prestigious event included Michael J Fox, Cate Blanchett, Martha Stewart, and John Mayer - to name a few.
Martha Stewart has bailed ship in her attempts to trademark the name of her "hometown" -- Katonah. According to NY Post reports, "Stewart couldn't stand the heat she's been getting from her upstate neighbors - so she got out of the kitchen."
Apparently, Martha failed to show up at a church engagement in Bedford for a benefit signing of her book "Homekeeping Handbook" - but sent her apologies at the last minute.
