Movie star JERRY O'CONNELL and TONY DANZA got Memorial Day in America off to a fighting start yesterday morning (30MAY05) when they donned Sumo suits and challenged each other to a battle of the bulge.

KANGAROO JACK star O'Connell confessed to the TAXI star-turned-US chat show he had an unfair advantage as he had experience of battling in a fat suit.

He explained, "I did it in a bar with my brother, I was really drunk."

O'Connell won the battle when he knocked the chat show host over three times.

The fight was stopped when the two stars were giggling so much, they couldn't go on.

Jerry and Rebecca are featured on page 78 of In Touch Magazine (May 30, 2005). There is also a brief mention on page 27.

In touch with their real sides!

Jerry and Rebecca: not always dressed up! Just because they're glamorous celebs doesn't mean Jerry O'Connell and Rebecca Romijn always hit the town in their Sunday best. The cute couple took advantage of a gorgeous spring afternoon in New York with a romantic stroll around the art galleries of Chelsea in their most comfortable, relaxed clothes. It looks like Jerry didn't even bother to comb his hair!

SEEN & HEARD Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O'Connell may be headed to the altar soon. At a DKNY Jeans/Jaguar event in Palm Springs, Calif., the couple looked closer than ever. When In Touch caught up with Jerry at a Crown Royal party at the Kentucky Derby, he bragged, "When we're getting married is our little secret!"

New York Post Page Six

May 14, 2005 -- TV's "Upfronts" aren't just the week when the networks decide the fate of TV shows — it's also another opportunity for celebrity swagaholics to gorge on free products. Following the lead of "hospitality suites" that cropped up at the Oscars, the Grammys and the Sundance Film Festival, Lucky and Cargo magazine are teaming up to coddle Hollywood B-listers at the Ritz-Carlton on Central Park South Monday through Wednesday. Expected guests Rebecca Romijn, Jerry O'Connell, Adam Brody, Ben McKenzie, Danny Masterson and Amanda Bynes will be offered gratis goodies from Bose, Frye Boots, Keds, Le Tigre, Lia Sophia jewelry and Ted Baker, in addition to free food and cocktails.

The supposedly "beleagured" William Morris Agency packed them in at its annual party for TV's upfront week. Macaulay Culkin, Melanie Griffith, Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O'Connell joined industry heavies like Howard Stringer, Edgar Bronfman Jr., Jeff Zucker, Tom Freston, Ron Meyer and Les Moonves at the Four Seasons bash.



Jerry and Rebecca were spotted this week at the outdoor bar Garden on the ground floor of Hotel Gansevoort in New York City. The following article from the New York Times mentions the couple.

Snazzy Meets Sneakers
Published: May 15, 2005

I wanted to take my boyfriend somewhere to get crazy and sexy," said Leah Cary, 24, sitting on a chaise longue at the Garden, a new open-air spot in the meatpacking district. Ms. Cary, an actress, was doing several things at once: smoking, making out and taking swigs from a bottle of white wine. A silky pink shirt slipped off her shoulder as she wrapped herself around her boyfriend, Adam Bennati, a member of the heavy metal band Early Man. He was in denim and a black Joy Division T-shirt.

"We don't dress fancy but we go to fancy places," he offered.

On the ground floor of the Hotel Gansevoort, the Garden was designed by Jeffrey Beers (China Grill, the Dylan) and operated by BPC, the nightlife developers behind SkyBar in Miami. Palm trees, cream-colored canvas cabanas, low-level lighting and teak give the room a South Beach and Asian fusion atmosphere. Four cabanas, tricked out with heating lamps and flat screen TV's, are protected from gawkers by an iron gate and black bamboo walls. Opposite the cabanas is a raised seating area floating over a reflecting pool, inspired by a dining platform that is placed over parts of the Kibunegawa river in Kyoto in the summertime. A high-tech retractable roof allows the Garden to remain open in all weather.

Since it is outside, smokers are free to light up. Like chickens breaking out of shells, most everyone here broke out of the nonsmoking zone to relish cigarette puffs and sips of wine. "I'm trying to quit," said the actor Jerry O'Connell, the star of "Kangaroo Jack," sheepishly admitting that though he wasn't lighting up that moment, his desire for a smoke was heating up. "This place is dark and classy, and it reminds me of Bowery Bar," he said. "Back in 1995, when I was a lowly N.Y.U. student, I wasn't allowed in because I was wearing sneakers."

Mr. O'Connell laughed and lifted his leg to show a Nike cross-trainer. His girlfriend, the actress Rebecca Romijn, looked over puzzled. Across the way, opening the door to the women's room was a statuesque blond in a sheer black top. Peeking out from pencil-thin black pants were a pair of tan snakeskin boots. Apologizing to the attendant, he said, "Putting on lip gloss in the boys' room just didn't work."

How Jerry Romances Rebecca He has had the boyfriend gig for nine months, but Jerry O'Connell tells Us he's still out to woo Rebecca Romijn. The latest? Playing chauffeur while the actress, 32, shoots her Pepper Dennis drama series pilot for the WB. "She's been working these insanely long hours," says the Crossing Jordan star, 31. "Like 16-hour days! so I drop her off and pick her up - every day." Adds Romijn, "He even went to get coffee for me and ended up having to get it for everyone on-set. He's so sweet." The one drawback to dating Romijn? "We were at the Dodgers game last week, and I had to constantly fend off guys trying to come up to her,' says O'Connell with a laugh. "I'm not out of shape or anything, but these were some big guys!"

Romijn and O'Connell chilled poolside at the April 30 bash DKNY Jeans and Jaguar hosted at the Sanctuary at Lago Sol in Rancho Mirage, California.

Jerry and Rebecca are among the celebrities who attended the Kentucky Derby over the weekend. The couple also attended the Barnstable Brown party on Friday night. Footage from the event was featured on Extra, and here's what the couple had to say: Jerry - "I usually bring my dad here, but you know what? When you come with a really, like, beautiful woman it's like a whole different story. It's really exciting." Rebecca - "I've been really impressed with the hats, they're crazy!"

Some celebs are horsing around this weekend at the Kentucky Derby. MSNBC News reports Nick Lachey is there without Jessica Simpson. Simpson is too busy for Louisville, but able to party solo in Las Vegas. Rebecca Romijn, however, is attending with her new squeeze, Jerry O'Connell. Other celebs expected at the celebration include Ashley Judd, Tori Spelling, Dennis Franz and Mark Moses.

Hoofing it

It's nice to know celebs are just as random as the rest of us when betting on the ponies.

Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O'Connell picked Wilco as yesterday's winner. "I'm following my boyfriend's lead," Romijn said. "My strategy is to just go with what he says about the horses."

Celebs saddle up for the Derby

By Larry Birkhead, special for USA TODAY Mon May 9, 6:36 AM ET

Giacomo, the horse that won Saturday's Kentucky Derby, may have been a virtual unknown, but Louisville was filled with A-listers who turned out for the big race and Derby Eve festivities.

The odds-on favorite party to attend Friday was the Barnstable Brown bash hosted by Priscilla Barnstable and Patricia Barnstable Brown, famous as the twins in the '70s Doublemint gum ads.

Grammy-winning singer Usher, actress Rebecca Romijn and beau Jerry O'Connell, actor Cuba Gooding Jr., Lost's Matthew Fox, crooner
Josh Groban and rocker Kid Rock were among the celebs who showed at the $1,200-a-head fundraiser to benefit diabetes research. The bash was held at Barnstable Brown's house.

Usher told fans lined up outside, "Jermaine (Dupri) told me this was the place to be, so I said, 'Let's do it.' " Kid Rock came with two women in tow. "Who wouldn't want two dates?" he said. Tara Reid didn't have a ticket and was stopped by security, but after fans chanted, "Let Tara in," guards let her pass.

Inside, guests sipped mint juleps and chowed down on beef tenderloin, stuffed lobster and corn pudding. Romijn and O'Connell couldn't take their eyes off each other, but for Dupri, the evening's eye-catcher was Michael Jordan, who arrived late, ate double portions of dinner and bobbed his head to music piped into the party's VIP section.

Saturday, celebs showed up at the races in colorful attire. Victoria Gotti of A&E's Growing Up Gotti wore a tan Halston suit and a large, fluffy hat. Romijn, in a muticolored Missoni dress, canoodled in the stands with O'Connell. Usher puffed on a cigar in a blue suit with a pink-and-white-checkered shirt. Kid Rock sported a custom-made pastel blue suit and $1,200 pink alligator shoes.

Few stars laid bets on Giacomo. When spectators shouted "Show me the money" to Jerry Maguire's Gooding, all he had to flaunt was a $20 bill. Said Romijn: "We didn't win, but we're lucky in love."

Who's who in Louisville

Everybody loves Rebecca Romijn and her new man, actor Jerry O'Connell, even if they're not quite sure who he is.

The pair turned heads at the Kentucky Derby last week when they arrived at Churchill Downs racetrack in Louisville.

"Rebecca Romijn! Rebecca Romijn!" a clutch of locals called out admiringly as the couple swept past. She flashed a warm smile over her shoulder.

Then, after a brief discussion, the fans began yelling at Jerry, "John Stamos! John Stamos!"

Scene Report: Coachella goes Hollywood!

It was like a Beanie Baby freakout for drunk hipsters at Filter mag’s pre-Coachella bash Friday night: Things got a little aggro in the Converse giveaway room, as greedy partyers shoved each other and stuck as many free sneaks as they could in bags, under arms and over shoulders, all while impressively downing cocktails. (The All-Star/Chuck Taylor quotient at the concert the next day was ridiculous, of course.) Coachella ain’t the new Sundance, but it did seem like it at the Jaguar/DKNY house in Palm Desert, which was open all day Saturday and Sunday. Rebecca Romijn, Jerry O’Connell and Nicole Richie were chauffeured from the show to the swanky pad, where they got free bikinis and massages.

The Daily Dish
Tuesday, May 3, 2005

Actor Jerry O'Connell was so concerned his new girlfriend Rebecca Romijn would dump him after visiting his messy bachelor pad, he called in Oprah Winfrey to help him transform the place.

The media mogul commissioned her favorite designer Nate Berkus to revamp the college dorm-style home.

O'Connell confessed, "I am beyond embarrassed. My big problem is bringing my girlfriend here."

Before the home makeover, the 31-year-old actor used a ping-pong table as his dining table and had a treadmill and two thrift store armchairs in his living room.

He told Berkus that he had held back from redesigning his home because he didn't have a clue about decorating the place.

He added, "At one time I didn't care what people thought, but now that I'm 30, and I'm entering different a stage in my life, I just can't bring anyone up here. I have zero design capabilities."

O'Connell was brought to tears with the stylish makeover when Berkus unveiled a huge painting by his artist father Michael O'Connell in his bedroom.

The thrilled star then invited former model Romijn to check out his new home. She said, "I love it. There's so many places to put your cocktail down, besides a ping-pong table."
