Jason Sudeikis and Olivia Wilde recently broke up. Unknown is, Olivia used to invest her off-hours addressing spirituality. She’d speak at an Upper East Side Christian service program.
Years back, in Italy, Jason’s sister Lindsay was a Catholic nun who later taught theology at the Upper East Side’s Dominican Academy.
In 2011, Olivia frequently did boyfriend Jason’s sister a favor and gave talks at this academy’s Christian service program. Her theme being kindness, goodness and doing and giving charity.
Lindsay eventually broke away, stopped wearing the habit, went into plain clothes and on to found online academy Omnia Sancta — OmniaSancta.org — in which she teaches and practices alchemy, faith healing, “ancestral” healing, Jewish mysticism and unorthodox Catholic mysticism.
Be thankful for your furry pals
Thanksgiving. Mt. Pleasant Animal Shelter in East Hanover, NJ, reminds us: Do not feed Fido from the table. Give him his own feast. No itsy bones within reach. No hot containers that can tip. No eating garlic, onions, salty foods, grapes, raisins, macadamia nuts, chocolate, coffee or anything with yeast. This no-kill shelter within our NYC backyard reminds us that with the holiday and COVID, we sometimes leave our advice in the doghouse. These are the pets we love. Pay attention.
Bits & pieces
Nice Thanksgiving gift is Hollywood pop culturist Nikki Haskell’s newie, Star Shooterz. A novel all-in-one smartphone case with built-in stand, zooming selfie stick, LED vanity lights and charger … Good holiday host Ellen Easton reminds us Audrey Hepburn, “who had a perilous childhood under the Nazis and whose unloving mother was like an iron fist in a velvet glove, always put forth the most delicate elegance” … And to enjoy a favorite turkey part, there’s Ben Affleck’s tender thought: “I prefer white meat. I should really prefer dark meat because, actually, I’m more of an ass man.”
Tori Spelling: “My holiday favorite’s my mother’s Jell-O” … Tama Janowitz: “The stuffing. Must include chestnuts. An hour for cooking. Boil a half-hour. Then make a little ‘X’ on them so you can peel them, which takes another half-hour. Also, Brussels sprouts.” … And per Plimoth Plantation in Massachusetts: “Pilgrims didn’t even eat turkey. They ate lobster, rabbit fricassee and Indian corn pudding.” So shove that cranberry sauce, about which Alan Cumming said: “I love it. I like to spoon it into my mouth directly from the can.”
Biden’s birthday. Celebrated in his Delaware HQ. Big table. Enough room for Donald’s lawyers. The Three Bears were there — Kamala, Pelousy, Schumer. Pelosi, with the leftover tip from her hairdresser bill, sprang for a plant. Small, small plant. Schumer brought cheesecake. Brooklyn’s world-famous Junior’s. No candles. The fire chief worried that with one for every year, it could create a fire hazard.
This Thanksgiving’s a real turkey for us — so at least feast on some new releases: “Dreamland.” 1930’s criminal on the lam Margot Robbie cons a lovestruck dude into helping her flee. Is she a killer or isn’t she? … “The Last Vermeer.” WWII stolen art story. Guy Pearce plays a flamboyant dealer who’s maybe cozy with Nazis … “Sound of Metal.” Riz Ahmed’s a drummer who loses his hearing, career and identity … “Happiest Season.” Victor Garber, Mary Steenburgen, Kristen Stewart — about half a closeted couple who go home to family for the holidays.
City Hall plans to improve NYC’s bad neighborhoods. They’re going to tear down those old nabes and, in the mayor’s honor, put up a slum.
Only in New York, kids, only in New York.
