\ We’ve seen the “Vagina Monologues” more than once. The script, as you would imagine, is frank. But it’s a play, not a public forum. So we’re kinda confused that Jane Fonda — God love her — doesn’t realize that the “C” word is probably not a good idea for network TV with its somewhat captive audience. In the theater, by all means, let ‘er rip. But on the Today Show? What was she thinking? If she hoped to be provocative, allow us to say that it came across as declasse, if not vulgar.\


\ It’s Valentine’s Day and our beloved better half met us this morning with a nice bottle of our fave French vintage. As a gift, not to drink with our coffee. Capeesh? We’ll also do a couple’s pedicure. Surprisingly fun, especially if it’s BYOB. We are never happier than when we are having spa services.\

\ Speaking of, our main man is a sincere devotee of John Varvatos. We think he has the SoHo boutique on speed dial, a fact that endears us, given our own retail proclivities. But what we really love are the Varvatos ad campaigns, which feature gorgeous black and photos of vintage rockers like Iggy Pop, Alice Cooper and most recently, the members of Cheap Trick, all riding ‘70s-era bikes and dressed in the latest Varvatos wear. Rick Nielsen, Robin Zander et al. Ya gotta check it out. Way cool. He’s someone on our “must meet” list (along with Wayne Newton).\
