Anthony Bourdain's mom to get 'Tony' tattoo

Gladys Bourdain, mother to the late food guru and 61-year-old "Parts Unknown" star, never liked her son's tattoos, but in his honor she's getting "Tony" -- Anthony Bourdain's nickname -- inked on the inside of her wrist. Gladys, 83, is a former editor at the New York Times, and told the paper in an interview Friday that she'll use the same tattoo artist her son liked. Bourdain hanged himself June 8 in France. He has since been cremated, and at some point there will be a private memorial. “He would want as little fuss as possible,” said his mother.

Donald Trump Jr.'s new squeeze 

New couple Donald Trump Jr. and Fox News star Kimberly Ann Guilfoyle are finally coming out of the closet, following the March announcement that the Trump Jr. and his wife Vanessa Trump would divorce. 

Trump Jr., 40, and Guilfoyle, 49, popped up at Metropolitan magazine’s party at New York's Nerai restaurant Thursday night. An unnamed source told Page Six that Trump Jr. and Guilfoyle looked “every bit the smitten couple.”

Meghan Markle sinks in godparent stakes

Always a long shot, Meghan Markle, 36, has dropped in bookmaker odds as the person likely to be named godmother to 2-month-old Prince Louis, the third child of Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge

The new royal-aunt stakes peg her chances at a dismal 14 to 1, far behind mere palace staffers and Prince William and Kate Middleton's good friends.

Godparents will be announced July 9 at little Louis' christening.

Markle's husband, Prince Harry, 33, is not a godparent to either of his brother’s two older children — 4-year-old Prince George and 3-year-old Princess Charlotte. The belief is that William and Kate lean toward their closest friends, rather than choosing godparents among relatives.
