Chelsea Lately and Tonight Show contributor Ross Mathews has a book coming out May 7. For younger readers, a book is an app made out of paper.
Titled Man Up!, the light-hearted work features a forward by Mathews' pal Gwyneth Paltrow and an afterword by friend Chelsea Handler. Described as touching, funny and very revealing, Ross followed a theme of celebrating everything that makes you different. Upon release, Target stores across the country will be selling limited-edition copies autographed by Ross himself, featuring an entire extra chapter just for Target customers.
I asked if it focused on why one should never wear red when shopping at Target, and Ross told me he had learned that lesson a long time ago. When I'm bored, I put on a red shirt, go to my nearby WeHo Target and act rude to people who ask me for help. It's cheaper than a gym. Of course, I'm kidding—I don't own anything red. You can catch Ross live at Largo at the Coronet on May 13, or if you're heading up to San Francisco, he'll be at the Regency Ballroom on May 16.
Ross has completed a talk show pilot, which was produced by boss Chelsea Handler. Hoping to be picked up any day now, it will feature him chatting with guests and audience members about current trends and topics.
If you live near the Americana at Brand shopping complex in Glendale, you could be Ross' new neighbor. He and partner Salvador just bought a home three times larger than the one you saw made over on Interior Therapy with Jeff Lewis. I really admire anyone with the skills or medication to let Jeff Lewis and Jenny Pulos spend the night in their home. As the couple can actually see the beautiful Americana retail complex from their new abode, I suggest Salvador hide the credit cards. Congrats, guys.
Fashion Police's George Kotsiopoulus has written a style book called Glamorous by George, which will be released by Abrams next January. George says it will expand people's sense of fashion in what they wear to focus on luxury in the world around them. George says, "Everyone likes waking up to pretty things. Clothes and fashion are just part of looking good." Yes, those "Pretty things" certainly include George himself. I just hope the book goes into detail about his superpower. We chatted 30 minutes after he'd left the gym, and he looked like he just left a fashion shoot.
