- I watched the opening night of Season 12. Finally, KUWTK looks like quality tv. It had much better storyline and tension than previous seasons. After watching hundreds of episodes to research my book, my mind almost turned to mush. I guess the execs at E huddled and decided to up the ante to make the show more respectable. It worked. If the first show was a sign of things to come Season 12 should be the best – by far!!!
- My book Kardashian Dynasty has been receiving great reviews from the media. Read this LA Weekly
IUC Restaurant of the Month: If I had to make a bucket list of NYC’s must-try restaurants, Mamo – Italian with a French flare – easily makes the cut. This newbie dining delight craftily combines elegance with one mouth watering dish after another. Among the impressive dishes at Mamo are the mind-blowingly, orgasmic truffle ravioli and the truffle pizza. The cocktails are next to none and the deserts will make you salivate. The panacotta was one of the best deserts I’ve had in NYC. Mamo is a must for quality foodies. Thanks to the incomparable Norah Lawlor, one of NYC’s top publicists, for suggesting Mamo.
If Donald wins, Melania would be the first presidential spouse since Louisa Adams, wife of John Quincy, to be born outside the United States. Mrs. Trump would also be the first for whom English is not a native language. Melania would be the only known first lady who once posed nude. In 2000 she took it all of for the British edition of GQ, on a bearskin rug on Trump’s private jet. Melania has been the target of many jabs by the media, often described as a gold digger, escort and porn star. The media have also accused Donald of cheating on Melania, including being with other women when Melania was preggo with their son Barron in 2006.
A NY media personality who is close to the Trumps tells IUC exclusively that the Slovenian beauty has told the flamboyant Donald several times “You’re Fired”, and has wanted to end the marriage. “They love each other but they also argue until they’re blue in the face,” the longtime NY TV host said. “They certainly have more issues than the average couple. Now that Donald seems to be a shoe in for the White House Melania will stick by him. But my sources who know her predict that after Donald’s term as President she will leave him and start a new life. She’s been miserable for a long time.”
Another source told IUC that if Donald fails to beat Hilary his marriage is all but over. “Melania’s a very smart cookie,” the source said. “While Donald’s busy running around the country campaigning Melania is making plans in case her man doesn’t win. The only thing that is keeping them together is Donald’s quest for the White House. If he fails I think his marriage is all but over.”
Do you think Melania and Donald will last? Let us know.
Sources in the Republican Party told IUC today that a juicy political scandal about Donald Trump is about to erupt. Historically, we’ve seen political scandals involve sex, greed, cronyism, corruption and false information. The voters feel betrayed while late night talk show hosts have a field day. Is Trump above the law? Can a fresh scandal cripple his career. Previous scandals that Trump has faced over the years include:
1) Lying about his net worth. Financial experts suggest Donald’s fortune is much less than he says.
2) Accusations that Donald raped his ex wife Ivana in 1989.
3) A lawsuit claiming Trump University defrauded thousands of students out of millions of dollars.
4) Trump’s 1970 discrimination lawsuit where the Justice Department sued Trump for refusing to rent his rental units to minorities.
5) Trump’s ridiculous comments about Senator John McCain not being a war hero. “He’s not a war hero. He was a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren’t captured.” McCain is a known war hero. Trump’s comments sparked national outrage.
6) Trump’s failed marriages. He’s now on marriage number four, and not all seems too well in the Trump household. Several people close to Trump and his wife Melania, 24 years his junior, claim the marriage has been rocky and Melania has threatened to leave numerous times because of Donald’s narcissistic ways.
7) How Trump dated numerous bimbos after his failed marriage to Marla Maples. Stay Tuned!!!!
IUC World Exclusive: A person once close to Republican Candidate Donald Trump told IUC that the former Apprentice host has “hidden treasures” all over the world. When asked to elaborate the former New Yorker who now resides in Palm Beach replied, “the world will find out sooner than later. I love Donald, he deserves to win the Republican leadership. I’m just afraid when all this comes out it might override his attempt to become the next commander in chief of our country.” Developing….
Oscars blind controversy: A former Oscar winner told friends she was snubbed by the Oscars this year because several jurists don’t like her kids. Mmmm….who can it be???
IUC travel: Recently, I stayed at the luxurious The Opera Hotel in Kiev. I haven’t experienced many hotels in my travels that rival their opulence, elegance combined with amazing amenities (spa and pool were amazing) and A-1 service. Despite all the war and insecurity in the Ukraine, Kiev remains one of the most interesting cities to visit. The Opera Hotel is the place to stay for travelers seeking a first class experience and location in the heart of the city.
Last week I was back in Medellin at the hotel I consider the best in Columbia, Hotel Dann Carlton. Dann is more than just a hotel, it’s a home away from home. Every detail is covered, including spa, amazing outdoor pool, two first class restaurants and the friendliest staff I have ever encountered during my travels. A pianist plays in the lobby daily in the early evening. Dann’s location is the best in Medellin, in between Park Jeres and the popular Santa Fe Shopping center. A must stay for anyone visiting Columbia.

IUC Travel Spot of The Month: Recently, I had the pleasure of staying at another Radisson Blu property that dazzles both inside and out. Radisson Blu Hotel Berlin is colorful, fun with an extremely friendly staff. Its rooms boast modern furniture, extremely comfortable beds and amazing views. Look too quickly, and you may think its breathtaking AquaDom, the world’s largest cylindrical aquarium which serves as a unique centerpiece in this stylish and ultra modern hotel, heads straight into the Mediterranean. Home to 427 rooms and suites with upscale amenities, Radisson’s Berlin location is smack in middle of the bustling, multicultural hub of one of Europe’s most exciting cities. Take breakfast in Restaurant Heat – its sprawling buffet is next to none. At night, Heat serves up the best beef, fish and ambiance one can dream of experiencing. Everything is first rate – no cutting corners. Heat is a must for dining experience for foodies and fans of culinary delights. The properties crowning jewel is its amazing spa and fitness center coupled with the best service I’ve seen at any hotel. The staff here will do whatever it takes to make your trip most enjoyable. Bravo Radisson Blu Berlin, can’t wait to go back!!!!
Jackie Collins made a difference in the world. She leaves a lasting legacy. The sheer force of her writing, incredible stamina and infectious personality will be missed forever. She was renowned for her literary explorations of steamy Hollywood fiction long before 50 Shades came on the scene. Back in 2002, Jackie nominated my book Bad&Beautiful as book of the year in an article she penned for the Mail on Sunday. The most shocked person was myself. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever imagine a person of Jackie’s stature and success would read one of my books, let alone nominate it for book of the year. I sent her flowers and kept in touch with her over the years. Without Jackie’s endorsement. I don’t think I would have lasted in this cutthroat biz. Jackie exuded grace and gravity. Jackie, there will never be another you. RIP!!!!!
IUC Travel: The new 1Hotel in South Beach looks incredible. After undergoing a 200 million buck renovation the place is once again hopping. On Saturday night I chowed down at Beachcraft, Tom Colicchio’s stunning, always fresh food seaside grill. Colin, one of the managers, was most gracious and accurate with his menu suggestions. Organic bubbly, fresh fish, a skirt steak that was next to none and incredible desert made this a true culinary experience. The side dish of corn was mouth watering. Next time you’re in South Beach this place is a must!
After Beechcraft I Ubered a few blocks south to the recently opened Fire&Ice, Miami’s impressive first Ice Vodka bar and breathtaking lounge that recently opened. The vibe at Fire&Ice was off the charts as bartenders mixed up killer cocktails to a very cool crowd. If you’re a barfly who craves watching mixologists perform their acrobatics behind the bar, this place is for you! Having been to several ice bars around the world, I have no doubt that this unique concept will be a roaring hit in Miami for many years to come. Fire&Ice is certainly at the top of the list of this season’s bar openings in South Beach.
