IUC Spotlight: Rumor mill has it that Brad and Ange live apart most of the time. One of my Hollywood reporter friends who has covered the duo for years recently told me, “they either have some sort of arrangement or they need their space. The love is nowhere near intense as it once was.”
Thanks to everyone for the incredible support for my new book. Bobbi Kristina will be missed. She was a great kid who unfortunately got into the wrong crowd. A big loss!!!
IUC Travel: Tel Aviv (Part I) I’ve been on the road all summer directing a new film due out in November. Along the way I stopped in Israel for a week. Tel Aviv is a city with gleaming cultural centers, revitalized architecture and a young, hopping crowd that continues to propel the ancient city forward. When it comes to hotels, Tel Aviv has become a world class force. The hotel I stayed at is the best boutique hotel I’ve ever checked into – and I’ve stayed at many. It packs more wow and more class than any other boutique hotel I can think of. Alma Hotel, located in the top location in the city center steps away from the bustling bars and cafes on Rothschild Boulevard, is an architectural gem that has emerged as the top spot to stay in the city center. Visitors can take in the elegant yet laid-back atmosphere that combines the friendliest staff and breakfast any traveler can dream of. Alma is a great alternative to the cramped hotel stretch on Tel Aviv Beach – it’s classy, quiet and only a 10-15 minute walk if you want beach. The immaculate building was designed in 1925 and redone as a boutique hotel in 2012 with 15 incredible suites and rooms. All the rooms are very well thought out with intense detail, classy, opulent with an artsy feel. I had a room with two balconies, extremely comfortable bed and a huge bathroom complete with bathtub in middle of the room. Alma’s incredible breakfast is as iconic as the hotel itself. By far, Alma serves the best breakfast in Tel Aviv. Alma is the place to stay if you crave something exceptional while visiting a city that rocks 24/7. Toda Alma!!!
IUC Blind: I was in L.A. a couple weeks ago and had the chance to interview a former publicist to an A-lister most people on this site are familiar with. The publicist revealed to me that the star she reps was recently admitted to a substance abuse center for abuse of prescription pills and depression. Can you guess who?
IUC Survey: What is the funniest film you saw this summer? Let us know which film and why? Look forward to your comments.
IUC Travel: Just discovered a hotel smack in the middle of London that provides the very best hospitality mixed with the most luxurious accommodations and the most attentive service I have seen anywhere in England. Radisson Blu Edwardian located on Bloomsbury Street a block from the British Museum is splendid, offering luxurious rooms and suites that are the finest and most reasonably priced in a city in which hotel rooms are normally tiny and sterile. Not at Radisson Blu Edwardian! In an atmosphere of class and calm, this architectural gem offers a rare preciousness and elegance that delight. The savoury cuisine of the Steak&Lobster restaurant is mouth watering and extremely price affordable. The lobster was out of this world and the caesar salad with salmon on top was a great starter. Great wine and ambiance made this a most enjoyable place to dine.
When you visit London this gem is the place I recommend you stay at. It offers guests a sophisticated combination of characteristic elegance and modern technology combined with extremely well decor rooms. A remarkable, elegant contemporary hotel with exquisite charm!
IUC Tuesday: An A-lister recently told his car dealer that he’s only into “leasing, not buying – wish I could turn back time and apply that theory to my wife”, he said. Can you guess who???

Here’s a pic from the exclusive first interview with GMA.
I am humbled and floored by the outpouring support I received the past few days after my publisher announced my new book. A heartfelt thank you to all. Your presence means a lot to me. Your kindness motivates me. I am so grateful.
Whitney brought an immaculate sense of musical proportion and beauty to everything she touched. When she gave birth to Bobbi Kristina it made her life complete. The tragic misfortune the Houston family suffered the past few years is heartbreaking. Pre-order your copy of The Deadly Price of Fame here: Amazon

IUC Travel: When visiting Oslo I had the pleasure of talking to The Thief`s guest relation manager Dominic, a man who grew up in Wimbledon and is probably one of the best versed people one can ever meet in the hospitality biz. He is proud of how successful The Thief has become in its short existence and admitted it has one of the most expensive and cutting edge art collections any hotel could dream of. The thief has become the destination spot for some of the world`s top A Listers, including Bill Gates and The Rolling Stones. Prior to my trip to Oslo I had no idea how good a hotel The Thief actually is. But on my extended visit there I quickly came to the conclusion that this architectural gem is one of the finest hotels not only in Scandinavia but in all of Europe. A must stay for travelers who crave comfort mixed with class and and first class detail all the way.
When I visited Turku, Finland I had the chance to stay at one of my favorite spots, The Radisson Blu Marina, located on the river. Stunning views, amazing spa and breakfast Radisson Turku is a delight in every which way. One of the friendliest staffs I have ever encountered during my travels. The restaurant on the first floor is a culinary delight. The filet steak was world class.
