Tamara Mellon’s been there, seen that. In the her memoir, “In My Shoes” (Portfolio/Penguin, $29.95), read about the luxe life of the founder of billion-dollar fashion brand and “Sex and the City” fixture Jimmy Choo. Believe it: the 46-year-old mogul was a high-school dropout and spent time in rehab. Juicy tidbits include Oscar mishaps with Julianne Moore, curtsying for the Queen of England and of course hanging with her biggest fans like Liz Hurley, Georgina Chapman and Cate Blanchett.

    Attack of Sharknado 2: Oh yeah, there’s another one

    The idea of making a movie about a tornado that scoops up thousands of sharks and sends them flying through the air to chomp their way through a bevy of people, places and things sounds totally ridiculous. That didn’t stop Syfy from moving ahead with Sharknado, a movie that became a pop culture phenomenon last year. The mania reached such a fevered level that a sequel, Sharknado 2: The Second One, was ordered. It premieres at 9 p.m. Wednesday on Syfy.
