Star Sightings: Heroes
The stars were shining across the country this
week, and "Extra’s" got all the details.
First up, holding on for a hero: what a
"Friend" Matthew Perry turned out to be.
British reports hail the actor for saving a drowning 2-year-old
at a friend’s barbecue in Hollywood. Perry reportedly spotted
the toddler lying in the pool, dove in and dragged him out
to safety. Perry's people can't comment on the story.
Meanwhile, it was a coming-out party for legendary singer
Diana Ross. The supreme diva was back on stage and
looking better than ever after a DUI landed her behind bars
for several days.
"Extra" was there Thursday as Ross rocked her hometown
of Greenwich, Connecticut, where she gave a special free concert
to benefit the local Arch Street Teen Center, where kids like
her own 15-year-old son, Evan Naess, hang out. "It’s
more comfortable for mom here because we know everyone,"
Evan told us.
And in the Big Apple, Beyoncé was teaming up with Tommy
Hilfiger to launch her new fragrance "True Star."
"Extra" was alongside the superstar Thursday night
in New York City, where she told us she loved the idea of
her line: "I love the name. The perfume was a reflection
of my personality, and a lot of women out there, so it’s just
Beyoncé’s been busy with the new scent and her role in the
upcoming "Pink Panther" remake starring Steve Martin.
"It’s been a joy," Beyoncé said of working on the
movie. "Steve Martin is so professional; I can’t wait
to see it."
And you can see some of the songs Beyoncé sings in the film
when MTV’s TRL Time Square Film Festival kicks off on Monday.
Who will be "The Palms Girl?" The search starts
this weekend at Sin City's hottest hotel, as "The Palms'"
owner George Maloof goes on the hunt to find that special
face for his hotel.
"We will pick one girl that represents
The Palms in our advertising and in media," the maverick
mogul told us when he stopped by our studio. He also revealed
that the girl who gets crowned will be able to cash in with
a $100,000 contract. "And she’ll be given a car allowance
and designer clothing allowance," Maloof added. Now that’s
what we call living it up, Vegas style.
