Vacation

THE BRADY BUNCH IN PORTOFINO

America’s picture-perfect family is vacationing in Italy and the other tourists are delighted to see them there. Believe it or not, visitors tend to ignore Gisele Bundchen and beg Tom Brady for selfies -he amiably obliges. And SHE is the most successful Supermodel in the world! The Bradys have 2 kids together- Vivian, 9, and Benjamin, 12, and they couldn’t get enough of the Italian ice cream. Gisele indulged also. Tom has another son, Jack, 14, with actress Bridget Moynahan. That’s quite a story-Tom had split from Bridget and started dating Gisele when he learned Bridget was pregnant. Gisele hung in there anyway (says she loves Jack) and she and Tom got married. Happy ending – Bridget married someone else too.

KRISTIN CAVALLARI’S PRE-DIVORCE VACATION FAILED

It looks like Kristin Cavallari arranged to take a pre-divorce vacation with her husband Jay Cutler just like Jennifer Aniston did before she filed for divorce from Brad Pitt. Jennifer had used her beach vacation with Brad to clarify her unhappiness with their marriage, and explain why and how their split should be handled. He was blindsided, but later admitted he had gotten lazy about their relationship and had it coming. Their split would have been relatively painless but Brad started his next movie immediately after he returned from that vacation. His costar Angelina Jolie entered the picture way too soon and swept lonely Brad off his feet. Still, their divorce was totally civilized – no accusations or name-calling. Apparently Kristin and Jay’s Bahamas vacation (during quarantine) wasn’t as productive and accusations have only just begun…

SIMON COWELL IS IN NO DANGER OF DROWNING

Year after year, like clockwork, Simon Cowell, 59, spends the Christmas holidays in Barbados. In years past he vacationed with various girlfriends, but since they’ve been together, he spends his winter vacation with Lauren Silverman, 41, and their four year old son Eric. Funny thing is, he never takes off that life vest. Every day Simon enjoys the beach and occasionally jet-skis, but he seems to have developed a fondness for that vest and never takes it off. (We see paparazzi photos daily) He usually has a New Years Eve party at the Sandy Lane Resort there, so we assume he will surrender the vest for that occasion…

ELTON JOHN’S FANCY SCHMANCY VACATION

Elton John and David Furnish took their two boys Zachary and Elijah to St Tropez for their yearly vacation. Elton is looking very blonde – the foursome and their entourage spent time on fabulous billionaires’ yachts (hence the life vests) and evenings in fancy restaurants. The kids would probably rather be at Disneyland.

Speaking of Chevy Chase, his costar in those National Lampoon vacation movies, Beverly D’Angelo, looks delightful in this photo taken at an event this week. (She is the mother of Al Pacino’s twins, by the way.) She and Chevy make an appearance in the new Vacation movie starring Ed Helms as their grown up son Rusty. Even more interesting, Beverly and Chevy filmed a sitcom pilot for ABC about a pair of selfish retired baby boomers whose lives are turned upside down when their grandchildren move in with them. Don’t know if it’s been picked up yet, but we bet that Beverly has some interesting stories about Chevy.

VITO SCHNABEL: TAKING HEIDI KLUM FOR GRANTED?

Photo removed by Google
We’re not saying the thrill is gone, but most men would NOT have their eyes glued to their phone while sunbathing with a topless Heidi Klum. Heidi and her younger man Vito Schnabel basked in the warm Caribbean sun in St Barth over the weekend. A couple dozen photos of their tanning session have surfaced and in every picture, Vito is staring at his phone, NOT his supermodel girlfriend. (In spite of her jam-packed work schedule, Heidi is rarely seen on her phone.) We published the most modest photo of Heidi.

Maybe Cameron Diaz had a premonition, but she timed her European vacation with boyfriend Benji Madden perfectly, Right after she finished promoting her movie “Sex Tape “ she left for a beach vacation. And she MISSED all the disappointment and embarrassment when the movie flopped in a massive way. Above, she’s returned to New York and she’s coyly avoiding the press.

AMERICAN TOURISTS NICOLE RICHIE AND FAMILY ARE VACATIONING IN THE SOUTH OF FRANCE

Looking like a typical American family on vacation in Europe, Nicole Richie and her musician husband Joel Madden and their kids Harlow and Sparrow took in the local sights. They did all the touristy stuff – sailed on a yacht, had a carousel ride, ate some ice cream, shopped, and took plenty of photos of each other.

WILL THE NEW “VACATION” BE TWICE AS FUNNY – OR HALF AS FUNNY AS THE ORIGINAL?

Looks like Christina Applegate will slip into Beverly D’Angelo’s shoes in the reboot of the 1980s family comedy Vacation. Ed Helms of Bachelor Party fame is signed to play the Chevy Chase “Dad” role. The reboot will be updated in that the son Rusty (originated by Anthony Michael Hall) now grown up and married, will take his wife and kids on a vacation similar to the one he remembers with his family in the 80’s. Ed Helms will play the grown up Rusty and Christina will play his restless wife. The original Vacation was written by John Hughes and directed by Harold Ramis – it will be interesting to compare the two.

Madonna aims to keep her young boyfriend happy. She’s made a yearly event out of flying his family from Marseilles to the exclusive Hotel du Cap in the French Riviera for ten days in August. Brahim Zaibat, was happy to see his mother Patricia Vidal, 47, (seven years younger than Madonna) and his cousins all together for a vacation. Madonna was there with her four children, Lourdes, Rocco, David and Mercy. Brahim lives in New York now with Madonna and she knows he misses seeing his family. These yearly weekends usually cost well over $100,000. Lourdes reportedly has a crush on one of Brahim’s cousins.
