Will you miss Alec Baldwin on Twitter? Don’t answer that. The volatile actor told Vanity Fair he will “never” tweet again because Twitter is “a waste of time.”
“I went to Jimmy Gandolfini’s funeral, and when I was there I realized Jimmy Gandolfini didn’t have Twitter,” said Baldwin. “Jimmy Gandolfini was so beloved as a person, and he was so admired as an actor, and he didn’t give a f---k about social media.”
Time will tell. Where else will the soon to be new father vent?
Meanwhile, Gandolfini left millions. In a will dated Dec. 19, filed Tuesday in Manhattan Surrogate’s Court, it is said that Gandolfini’s son, Michael, is to get the largest chunk through a trust set aside for him until he turns 21. He’ll split his father’s Italian property with his half-sister, 8-month-old Liliana, when she turns 25.
The paper says the remainder of Gandolfini’s $70 million estate will be split among his wife, sisters and daughter. He left $200,000 each to his personal assistant and secretary.
It’s a good thing Shakira keeps track of her emails. The Colombian singer filed a personal declaration in Los Angeles County Superior Court saying her ex, Antonio de la Rua, admitted in writing he never had a stake in any of her companies (he is suing her for $100 million). “I am not a partner in any of your companies. You are the sole owner of all of them," he allegedly wrote in a related email to Shakira dated Jan. 15, 2011, and provided to the court. Shakira, 36, says in her filing that she hired de la Rua as a “business advisor” who was duly paid for his services.
Lost and found
There are honest people still around, or perhaps star struck? A stranger found Steve Martin’s wallet on a Wilkes Barre, Penn., street and, amazingly, returned it. Martin apparently lost it while bicycling before performing Tuesday night. Inside was Martin’s driver’s license and credit cards but no cash.
If you enjoyed Marie Osmond’s talk show, don’t look for it on the Hallmark Channel. A statement says there will be no second season. Marie is going into syndication as originally intended. New and repeat episodes of Marie will air on Hallmark through September.
