    They have Page Six, which is grittier, so it's not like they're abandoning gossip.

    Strangely, she was kind of like the first blog before there were computers.

    Talk about being born at the right time. Something tells me she'll be fine.

    Caught the blind item Tuesday about "an actor doing coke in a bathroom at an Oscars party while a recently slimmed-down stoner star was smoking pot outside (figure the last one was Seth Rogan). The best was number three about a morning cable hostess who recently returned after getting her eyes and chest done.

    They'd cut back LS's frequency, a few years ago, as it was.

    Meanwhile, Cindy Adams rolls on.

    Mika? She was gone to "the south of France" for a few days.

    Do you think more than 10 people read Cindy Adams a day?

    Frankly, yes . . . my belief is that CA's stuff is very well-read . . . unlike Liz, who has
    disintegrated into little more than a shill for her special pets (Cruise, Travolta,
    Madonna, et al) in recent years. It's obvious that certain people have an enormous
    amount of clout in terms of getting mentioned the "right way" in certain metro area
    gossip columns, but to maintain optimum reader interest, you'd think it would be
    wise to spread the plugs around, just a little bit.
