The usually-mouthy Rosenberg acted like nothing happened!

“It’s nice to be back,” Rosenberg said as the Welcome Back Kotter theme played. “I’m coming back today after six weeks of relaxation and rest.”

The 44-year-old sports nut then bragged about losing 15 pounds after running 6 to 7 miles a day at high noon during his unpaid time off.

“As for all the non-sense that was on the street, well, that was non-sense,” he added.

Rosenberg, who’s also the sports anchor for New York City’s all news radio station 1010 WINS, allegedly attempted what radio biz folks call “plugola,” Gossip Extra reported exclusively last month. (more…)

The paperwork shows Warfield allegedly used the account of a members at The Breakers’ Beach Club to go on a shopping spree and eating/drinking binge.

Tea Party Moneyman David Koch Now Pours Cash Into Fireworks!

When it comes to the holidays, it sure pays for the Town of Palm Beach to have seven billionaires and hundreds of multi-millionaires among its residents!

Finally, David Koch's using his money for good things

Did you happen to catch the New Year’s Eve fireworks over Palm Beach?

That was energy tycoon and Tea Party backer David Koch‘s thing!

Koch, No. 4 on the 400 with $25 billion and a Palm Beach charity circuit regular, treated the great unwashed to 30-minute Grucci fireworks that rivaled New York City’s on the Fourth of July.

The best thing: It didn’t cost Palm Beach County taxpayers a penny!

“It sure is great to have residents like him,” said Town Councilman Bill Diamond, a former New York City Administrative Services commissioner under ex-Mayor Rudy Giuliani. “For a town the size of this one (30,000 residents in winter), we are able to have world-class fireworks and Christmas decorations because private residents donate money.

“People like David go out of their way to make our lives and town more beautiful. He’s like the Venetian prince of the Renaissance.” (more…)

LeBron James: Having his cakes, and not eat them (Click on the photo for more)

The managing partner of the Shelborne South Beach, the Miami Beach hotel where James celebrated his 27th birthday and was engaged to high school sweetheart Savannah Brinson on New Year’s Eve, said James’ staffers sent to the hotel hours before the party deemed “horrible” the five-tier cake made — free of charge — by baker Alethea Hickman.

The Boca Raton-based mom-and-pop operator Hickman, who runs two small Passion for Pastry stores in Boca Raton, had been promised wide-spread publicity in exchange for the $3,000-cake. But when she woke up on New Year Day, the pictures that ran online were of a birthday cake made by a competitor, Miami’s Divine Delicacies.

Miami’s WSVN-Channel 7 climbs aboard the Gossip Extra bandwagon

“It just wasn’t what was expected,” said the Shelborne’s Jared Galbut. “She never provided us with a design. When LeBron’s people saw it, they just didn’t want to use it and decided to bring their own. I can’t tell LeBron James what birthday cake to eat.”

When asked why the hotel requested a freebie from Hickman, Galbut called it a “sponsorship” deal.
