Hot stuff celebrities love

Anyone ever tell you look like someone famous? Barack Obama? Dan Marino? Sandra Bullock? Someone incarcerated or in rehab? Figure out your “face soul mate” at findyourfacemate.com. Star watchers can upload selfies, and they’re entered into a database of thousands of celebrities from sports figures and politicians to actors and singers. Why go through the trouble? Bragging rights (one would hope).

Drink

Kenny Chesney is from Tennessee, but he feels at home on the beach — where he spends much of his off time, kicking back with a cocktail. It was only a matter of time before the country star came out with a rum, called Blue Chair Bay, after his song “Old Blue Chair.” “I wanted to create something I could be really proud of,” he told Forbes. “Not just take a check and a piece of a company, but make the rum I truly wanted to drink.” Two coconut flavors and a white version (mellowed in casks in Barbados) are on shelves at Crown Wine & Spirits in Coral Gables. $18.99.

Read

Johnathan Hillstrand, of “Deadliest Catch” fame, is an old softie. The grandfather of two has come out with his second children’s book, “The Adventures of Joey and Andy Crab: Crab Day Afternoon.” The co-captain of the F/V Time Bandit wrote and illustrated the book — about two crab brothers who skipped school and end up in (literally) hot water — after breaking his ribs during a failed bull riding attempt last summer. The message: Behave! $14.95 at shop.timebandit.tv

    Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Kirstie Alley no longer speak: Is it because of Scientology?

    Que paso? Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Kirstie Alley used to be so close. They met as partners on Dancing with the Stars and stayed in touch but these days they no longer speak. “She stopped getting along with me,” Chmerkovskiy told Andy Cohen on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live. “I got a message now that I am associating with other people that she can't be associated with, I am no longer to be spoken with, and sorry, but it is what it is.” Jennifer Lopez, rumored to be dating the dancer, is besties with Leah Remini, who recently left the Church of Scientology, and that perhaps doesn’t sit well with Alley, who remains loyal to Tom Cruise’s church.

    At 88, Hollywood legend Lee Grant looks back in ‘I Said Yes to Everything’

    Actress Lee Grant came that close to washing Shampoo out of her hair when co-star Warren Beatty told her how to play the scene when she learns he has seduced her character’s daughter. The matter got resolved after she spoke to the actual director, Hal Ashby, and then to Beatty again. Not only did she win an Oscar for the role, but she and Beatty became great friends, even sharing a few passionate kisses after filming ended.
