RUMOR HAS IT: Madonna Parties, Cher Sneaks In & More

Super City sources heard that Madonna has rented out a somewhat unlikely palindromic restaurant in Broad Ripple for a bash (it better have spicy fried chicken for Nicki Minaj), and Cher was trying to rent a house in Carmel for mega money … Ryan Gosling threatened to dethrone Jimmy Fallon as toast of the town as word of his bar-hopping kept tweeters up late on Tuesday night. Kilroy’s and Scotty’s Brewhouse debunked the rumor that the shoulda-been Sexiest Man Alive visited their joints, although a source close to the actor’s team indicated that he had been downtown. Maybe someone meant to tweet that they had seen Colts general manager Ryan Grigson or Jon Gosselin. Damn you, autocorrect! … Julio Iglesias and Reggie Wayne were spotted on the Circle enjoying the balmy Wednesday … New England Patriots receiver Chad Ochocinco hit up the Starbucks inside Barnes & Nobles at the IUPUI Campus Center, across from University Place Hotel, where the Patriots are staying … Miss America Laura Kaeppeler, who will be a guest at the Taste of the NFL Saturday night, needed a cop’s help hailing a cab outside Palomino last night, and evidently the cop thought the taxi driver needed help knowing that his fare, who wore a supersized crown, was Miss America.
