Hot stuff celebrities love



Someone’s got a sweet tooth: Jennifer Lopez, in town promoting “Parker,” supped at Catch at The James Royal Palm. The singer-actress was overheard raving about her dessert, The Peanut Butter Cup Souffle, a recipe by Executive Pastry Chef Thiago Silva. The gooey, decadent treat, $12, contains Skippy’s, corn syrup, heavy cream, egg white and superfine sugar, and comes fully loaded with a Peanut Butter Cup Popsicle alongside. Don’t worry about J.Lo. She knows how to burn off the calories.


Pippa Middleton and other royal types love Knomo laptop bags because of all the spiffy add-ons. Think a cushioned compartment for your computer; a shockproof, protective pouch made from high density foam; even a tracker ID, in case you leave your prized possession at Kinko’s or the club. Makers say all styles are “torture tested” by being dropped 2,500 times while loaded with a 33-pound weight. We hear Pippa likes the tea-berry quilted Aurora, evocative of Chanel. $149.95, www.knomobags.com


Sleep is good, though often hard to come by. Hastens, Sweden’s oldest manufacturer of beds — since 1852 — feels your eye-drooping pain. They’re all about the power of rest, crafting durable yet stylish furniture and accessories. We’re loving the 100 percent duck down, rugged blue check travel pillows stuffed with cotton. Prop one on your seat to make flying the Red Eye a little more glamorous. They also double as cosmetics or shaving kit bags. $110. www. hastens.com, 212-505-8022

    Valerie Harper: I’m not ‘cancer free’

    Sounded too good to be true, and it was: Valerie Harper is not “cancer free,” as Closer Weekly reported. There is no cure for leptomeningeal carcinomatosis — cancer of the membranes around Harper’s brain. The veteran actress says in a statement that the magazine’s reporter misunderstood when she said her most recent full-body scan was clean and that the cancer had not spread.
