Celebrities! Celebrities!

Like a lot of us, actor Ted Danson — starring in "Mad Money" being filmed here — fights high cholesterol and watches his diet he said during the Robinson Film Center benefit, "An Evening Under the Stars," Friday at Bill Robinson’s South Highlands home.

"Matthew Linn at Columbia Cafe takes care of me. I hang out at Columbia Cafe for grilled fish and vegetables. I eat breakfast, lunch and dinner," said Danson.

"I fix him mainly fish and vegetables," said Linn, who chatted Saturday at CORK Wine Festival.

Those veggies are likely to be asparagus, squash, acorn squash or eggplant.
And for breakfast? How about egg white omelet with veggies.

Danson said he has also had a good meal at Bella Fresca and has eaten at Sunshine Health Food Store. "I eat there and go shopping," he said.

He is also grateful to Linn for lining him up with a bed and breakfast on Fairfield.

Danson was directed to Columbia Cafe at the airport when he arrived here. He told Linn he wasn’t happy were he was staying and would he help him find another spot. Linn helped him out.

What’s up with Tom and Katie?

..."Tom and Katie’s Small-town getaway!" says the caption above a photo in In Touch Weekly.

And that "small town" would be? Shreveport! The caption headlines a photo of Tom Cruise posing with a young girls’ softball team at Betty Virginia Park on May 1. It is on page 59 in the May 21 edition of In Touch.

Cruise is here with wife Katie Holmes, who is filming "Mad Money," and their baby, Suri, 13 months. "We like it here. I lived in Kentucky when I was younger, so I’m used to the heat. It brings back good memories," was Cruise’s quote in the mag. The caption also said that Suri was taking baby steps in the grass and that Tom asked for a suggestion for a local restaurant.

... Locals Candy Welch and Sparkle Marshall ran into Cruise when serving as extras on "Mad Money." Coming through with Suri dressed in a flowered frock, he spoke to everyone.

They also visited with Queen Latifah on the set.

And had their photos taken with a smiling Diane Keaton.

Extras! Extras!

Andy and Mary Frances Querbes and daughter Caroline served as extras on "Mad Money" when their home was used for filming part of the movie. Diane Keaton was in the scene shot over and over.

"Diane Keaton gravitated to Caroline and talked to her," said Mary Frances
