Buble & wife shop for baby in Wynwood

Michael Bublé and wife Luisana Lopilato were seen shopping for baby gear Sunday afternoon at the new Genius Jones store at 28th Street and Northeast Second Avenue in Wynwood. The Canadian-born crooner and his Argentine, lingerie model wife posted a video on YouTube in January announcing that she’s pregnant with their first child. The couple, who jumped out of a chauffeur-driven black SUV, looked at strollers and cribs but didn’t buy. Bublé asked her if she wanted to buy anything and, like a typical superstitious expectant mother, she said she just wanted to have a look around.

President Bill Clinton was spotted having dinner with a large group in the private wine room Saturday at Zuma. As he left, he was seen leaning over the Robata kitchen to thank the chef.

Also spotted at the restaurant were Rosie O’Donnell and wife Michelle Rounds, sharing a quiet night out on Friday.

    Mag: Lindsey Vonn and Tiger Woods’ ex wife are friends

    No bad blood here. Though Elin Nordegren is unlikely to befriend one of her ex-husband Tiger Woods’ conquests (even though we’re sure that Perkins waitress was/is a great human being), Us Weekly is reporting Nordegren has no issue with Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn. In fact, the two are friends. Not besties by a stretch, but after spending time doing parental things, the two have found they get along. A source tells the mag: “You'd think it would be weird, but ... they talk all the time. Elin likes that Lindsey is a strong woman.”
