Lady Gaga keeps little monster fans at bay while shooting video for 'Marry the Night'
Tuesday, October 11th 2011, 4:00 AM
Lady Gaga appreciates her little monsters - everywhere but on her video sets. A source on Staten Island Monday tells us the singer took over a building called Music Hall in Snug Harbor to shoot - judging from the piano music that was overheard - a video for "Marry the Night."
The source says word of mouth about the shoot drew "about 50 to 100" onlookers to the location, including five high school students who managed to find their way to a backstage area of the set. Not for long, though: Our insider says that once a bouncer realized the teens weren't part of the crew, he immediately tossed them out.
The source adds that when Gaga finally did appear from the video set, she was shrouded in a white sheet so "no one could see what she was wearing" and no one could take a bootleg photo or footage of the shoot.
Carole Radziwill isn't an actual housewife, but that doesn't mean she's single. The new "Real Housewives of New York City" star has been spotted filming for the next season of the Bravo reality show, and an insider says viewers can expect scenes with her beau, musician Russ Irwin.
According to a source, things "aren't serious" with the singer-songwriter, who has appeared on tour with Sting and Aerosmith in the past. Although Bravo has yet to make an official announcement that Radziwill, designer Heather Thomson and socialite Aviva Drescher will join the show's cast - as we first reported last month - shooting has already commenced. The insider tells us "things are going well" with all the ladies, including Drescher, who hasn't been caught in paparazzi photos yet. "Her husband [always says]: 'I've got Aviva feva!'"
Federico Castelluccio and Angelica Page classed up hipster haven Miss Lily's Favourite Cakes last Thursday night. A source at the Jamaican restaurant on Houston St., which is famous for irking Anna Wintour, tells us the former "Sopranos" star and the actress-director made the place the site of their unofficial after-party following that night's Fame-Wall NYC Actors Fund benefit. Page, daughter of Rip Torn and Geraldine Page, was honored at the fund-raiser and cut loose at Lily's. She danced between tables to DJ Monk while wearing a vintage couture lace evening gown that once belonged to her Oscar-winning mother.
Backsides with a view
Dr. Dre has impeccable taste. The hip-hop and Beats headphones mogul was among the A-listers who hit the Tony Shafrazi Gallery for fashion photographer Raphael Mazzucco's art installation and forthcoming book, "Culo By Mazzucco" - which, as you might deduce, is a loving homage to women's bottoms. The soiree, hosted by Dre's Beats partner and music mogul Jimmy Iovine and Sean (Diddy) Combs, drew a crowd of exceptionally beautiful women and boldfaced names, including Cassie, who mingled among the provocative multimedia images of celebs and models' gorgeous glutes. When we asked Dre to name a few of his fave shots, he said, "Everyone thinks I'm crazy," before pointing to an image of French actress/model Sarah Marshall in the midst of a gravity-defying, back-bending yoga move. (Did we mention she's naked?) Mazzucco called Marshall "very flexible," and judging from crowd interest in the photo, Dre is crazy like a fox. The crowd migrated downtown to the Darby afterward and included Kanye West and La La Anthony.
Ricci's NYC nightcap
Christina Ricci is embracing New York nightlife. A source at Ph-D in the Dream Hotel tells us the "Pan Am" star arrived there early Sunday morning with co-star Margot Robbie and one other pal. The source says Ricci ordered a "white Chardonnay spritzer," danced in her seat and left at 2, but then returned at 3:45 a.m. for a nightcap. We like her style.
