Hot stuff celebrities love

 

Try

A Knork is like that old Bryan Adams song, “Cuts Like A Knife.” This funky, sharp-edged eating utensil was thought up by young pizza lover Mike Miller of Kansas, who wanted a polite, user-friendly way to cut his slice. Simply put: You can try out Knork’s entire stainless-steel flatware line at Chef Allen’s in Aventura and Mezes Greek Tavern in Pembroke Pines, or buy a four pack starting at $20 at Kohl’s, Beth, Bad & Beyond. www.knork.net

Listen

Too bad, so sad: Most South Floridians can’t see Chris Noth at Carnegie Hall on Monday narrating a family concert called “Angel Heart.” It’s based on a new CD storybook about a girl whose heart is broken then healed on a journey with some fantastical creatures. What we can do is buy the CD package narrated by actor Jeremy Irons. A sort of bedtime story for the digital age, “Angel Heart” comes with an iPad app. $13.86 at Amazon.

Drink

Apparently “Fifty Shades of Grey” author E.L. James has a thing for wine-making as well as inducing female readers around the world to swoon for a fictional Christian Grey with a twitchy palm paddle. James teamed up with California’s North Coast winemakers to personally blend the FSOG Red Satin and White Silk wines. Both feature the advertising tag line “You are mine.” Handcuffs not included. $17.99 at www.FiftyShadesWine.com

    Amber Valletta comes clean: I’m a raging addict

    Amber Valletta isn’t playing the blame game. The model-actress (Hitch, Revenge, Transporter 2) talked candidly in a video for MindBodyGreen.com and takes full responsibility for her addiction to drugs and alcohol. In the clip, Valletta says she started young, sniffing markers while growing up in Oklahoma, then graduated to the hard stuff when she began posing for magazines. Even though she has been sober for 25 years, the self proclaimed raging addict still has moments when she wants to “distract herself” because she’s “uncomfortable being a human being.” The 40-year-old mother of one, who is married to volleyball player Chip McCaw, credits looking inward constantly to stay healthy.
