You’re about to get really envious of Carole Radziwill. The Real Housewives of New York City star, who once dated George Clooney, also seems to have had a fling with Ralph Fiennes.

A bureaucratic error has put a Catholic church on an NYC street named after George Carlin. The comedian skewered the church in his act and gained fame with his foul-mouthed “seven dirty words” routine. After he died in 2008, fellow comedians proposed naming the stretch of 121st Street where he grew up George Carlin Way. The New York Times reports that priests at Corpus Christi Church objected; under a compromise, one block was to be named after Carlin — not where the church is. Due to a clerical error, it’s two blocks long and includes the church. City officials say the mistake will be corrected.
