Seal / Jossip

Wed / 14 Sep 2005

• It’s time to disembark from hating on Gwenyth Paltrow for naming her daughter Apple — we’ve got bigger issues with Heidi Klum and Seal‘s naming abilities for their new son: Henry Guenther Ademola Dashtu Samuel. Somebody’s going to have an ego complex.

• Somehow Sir Richard Branson think he’s the one to de-snob the wine industry. This, coming from a man who balloons around the world for recreation.

Victoria Gotti crashed the homecoming party of just-released Julius Nasso, who used to work for her father John. He’s been trying to steer clear of his mob ties, but Victoria’s on the hunt for anything that’ll land her some press.

• Fashion editors didn’t feel so worthy at Yigal Azrouel‘s fashion show on Saturday, thanks to clueless door minders who only recognized the socialites to let through the door but not the industry scribes.

• Even its executives grow exhausted from Richie Rich and Traver Rains. Top Heatherette exec Elissa Bromer ditched after six months on the job (and just days before their Bryant Park show), though rep Aimee Phillips says that’s merely how long she was signed for.

Martha Stewart‘s Martha debut faired better than The Tyra Banks Show, with a 2.4 household rating versus Tyra’s 1.3. Though we’re still going to harp on both.

• Like Milla Jovovich, we just hate it when we grab a size two by mistake.

» More Heidi Klum, Seal

Heidi Klum went pop! Just as we were recovering from those false Britney Spears birth rumors, we’ve got Seal’s new baby boy to deal with.

Klum unloaded her placenta mess last night at an L.A. hospital and, while her publicist doesn’t have much to say, she did ring in the cheerful announcement with this all business, all the time soundbite: “[Heidi will] hopefully be ready for the Emmys.”

Yes, that would be this Saturday, where Heidi is nominated for her Project Runway. And we expect her to at least be down to a size zero by then, too.
