It’s looking like Chelsea Handler and zoologist boyfriend Dave Salmoni have split. “Up until a couple weeks ago, I was working very intimately with the Animal Planet, but unfortunately, that contract was terminated,” the E! talk show host said, riffing on her personal life in a Sept. 1 monologue. “However, I enjoyed being in bed with them and may hook up for an occasional project.”
LADY KILLER: Multimedia comedy juggernaut Chelsea Handler—one of the only females in America to be nonplussed by being asked on a date by Justin Bieber—brings her stand-up tour to the Prudential Center in Newark. Despite having signed on to write a book on Handler’s own imprint, the comedienne’s dog, Chunk, will not be joining her. Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang is at 8PM.
SMALL WONDERS: At first blush, John Cameron Mitchell—he of Hedwig and the Angry Inch and Shortbus—may seem an odd choice to direct a moody film (Rabbit Hole, in theaters December 17, adapted from David Lindsay-Abaire's Pulitzer-winning, Tony-nominated play) about a couple grieving their child. Mitchell is joined by his stars, Nicole Kidman and Aaron Eckhart, to talk about the movie and why the story is so resonant for him, at a special presentation at the Apple Store Soho. 6PM.
EVERYBODY CUT: To create Our Footloose Remake, screening tonight at 92YTribeca, the 1984 gotta-bust-a-move-in-this-small-town classic that put Kevin Bacon on the map was divided up into 50+ different scenes, and each scene was handed to one of nearly 60 filmmakers all over the planet-each of whom did something decidedly different with it (animation! puppets!). 8PM.
