Talking Points 12/2 Michael Phelps goes all Animal House, Anna Wintour looking even more pinched than usual and other notables from around the NYC web

French Where's Vogue E.I.C. to supplant Anna Wintour at the mag's U.S. counterpart? Anne Hathaway when you need her? Listen, if that's what it takes to keep smart media afloat nowadays, we say, slush away, The New York Observer is bankrolled by an illicit slush fund set up by the editor's daddy? Charles Kushner. Michael Phelps, Atlantic City card shark? Apparently the Olympic wunderkind parked himself at the tables and rocked 10-20, no-limit hold-'em all weekend, when he wasn't mainlining tequila and - gasp! - womanizing. Shouldn't a nice boy like him be home with his family on Thanksgiving? And so the backlash begins. Proving once again that the French totally wish they had an Obama to get their culottes in a twist over: Very familiar-looking posters plastered all over Paris, except with Sarko's leering mug instead of Barack's. Hmm. Have you been following the casting of the It's going to be a has-been fest! Who says you can't live forever? Fame remake? …& ICYMI (or you didn't, but the video just makes you smile): Men's bras are selling like hotcakes - weird, flat-cupped hotcakes - in Japan.
