Dick Clark will co-hostNew Year's program
NEW YORK -- As he did last year, Dick Clark will co-host the annual "New Year's Rockin' Eve."
The former "American Bandstand" host, now 76, will join Ryan Seacrest and musical guest Christina Aguilera to ring in 2007 before a national TV audience of millions. Clark missed the show two years ago when he suffered a stroke but returned to the holiday staple last New Year's Eve.
Seacrest, the 31-year-old host of "American Idol," handled co-hosting duties last year and is expected to eventually succeed Clark as the show's host.
Clark originated the New Year's Eve program back in 1972. The only show he missed was shortly after his Dec. 6, 2004, stroke.
Model says eraof glamour is over
HONG KONG -- Tatjana Patitz says the golden age of models is over.
"There was a real era, and the reason that happened was because glamour was brought into it. ... Now the celebrities and actresses have taken over, and the models are in the back seat completely," she was quoted as saying in an interview in the November issue of Prestige Hong Kong magazine.
One of the top models of the 1990s, the 40-year-old Swede also said models from her era had healthier physiques.
"Women were healthy, not these scrawny little models that nobody knows their names anymore," Patitz said.
