Hugh Jackman likes his java, so much so that he opened a NYC shop, Laughing Man Coffee & Tea, devoted to all things caffeine. You can also browse for brands from all over the world on his new website, where 100 percent of profits goes to various charities. The “Real Steel” star says he was motivated by the late actor/philanthropist Paul Newman and his Newman’s Own all-natural line of foods. 212-680-1111, @livelaughingman.
Jennifer Lopez really doesn’t sit still for a minute. The actress-singer’s latest venture: a health and wellness company for women only called Body Lab. On the website you can shop for products like a “decadent” fudge protein shake with fat-burning capacity, recipes such as “JLo’s Favorite Sea Bass Ceviche” and read an advice column written by her expert pals. One topic: how not to break New Year’s resolutions like, “I want to be like Jennifer Lopez.” 800-396-5812, bodylab.com.
Dana Loia went from a cubicle job as a photo editor to pursuing her dream of being a “pastry magician,” as she calls herself on Twitter. These days this intrepid soul runs NYC’s Dana’s Bakery, putting fun twists on traditional French macaroons using any flavor combination that Loia fancies. Think peanut butter & jelly, Fruity Pebbles and S’mores. Mon dieu! We hear Shay Mitchell and Whitney Port are gobbling up these macs — oh so daintily. 800-477-1816, danasbakery.com.
The show must go on, though Joan Rivers will no doubt be dearly missed. E!’s “Fashion Police” is back 9 p.m. Monday with Kelly Osbourne and Giuliana Rancic as well as two new cops on the block — acerbic comedian Kathy Griffin and celeb stylist Brad Goreski. “Kathy just feels right, and Brad brings a fun, new voice,” executive producer Melissa Rivers shared with fans. “I’m excited to see where this panel takes this series my mother so adored in this next incarnation.”
