Hilary Duff‘s boyfriend, Good Charlotte frontman Joel Madden, knows the way to her heart: a good cup of java. “Most of the time we’re in hotels and stuff, so he’ll order whatever he knows that I like,” she says. “Or we ll go on walks in the morning to Coffee Bean. He’s a great boyfriend.”
And even though the couple’s conflicting schedules sometimes keep them apart, Duff and her rocker at least will spend Thanksgiving together. “I’m actually going to be home on Thanksgiving, but then Thanksgiving night, Joel and I fly to Brazil because he has some shows there,” she told us at a recent party in London celebrating Stella McCartney’s new H&M fashion line.
The actress-singer has been busy promoting her Most Wanted album in Europe, and she doesn’t have any downtime planned in the near future. “I have to fly to New York twice and do some work in L.A. Then I tour Australia for two weeks. Then I come back and do some promotion for the movie that my sister and I have coming out Material Girls, she says. “Then I do a four-week tour in Canada and then Asia.” Lucky she’ll have a good cup of coffee to keep her going.
Something to Talk About
Kathie Lee Gifford and Regis Philbin are getting back together. No, Gifford isn’t returning to her old morning-show stamping ground with Reege. But she’ll be interviewing her former cohost for The Insider in a segment airing Nov. 3. We got a sneak peek of their chat – including whether Donald Trump should name his baby-to-be after Philbin. “I will tell him that a lot of people think he should, including Kathie Lee Gifford,” Philbin says. “Regis Trump, I love it. Regis means king and Trump is the king.”
Caught in the Act
• Bono, dining at Washington, D.C., restaurant Caf Milano. The U2 frontman wore his signature sunglasses while dining on pasta and risotto.
• Taye Diggs, playing basketball at the Reebok Sports Club/NY in New York City.
• American Idol star Constantine Maroulis, hanging out at the Bradley Bayou fashion show at Smashbox Studios in Culver City, Calif.
