Uncle Tom’s Gabbin’

Everyone heard Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry wish Steven Tyler a happy birthday and whisper in his ear, “Have a good time on Maui” during his surprise visit to American Idol a few weeks ago, so it was no surprise that Steven and fiancée Erin Brady, along with daughter Liv Tyler, were spotted at Mama’s Fish House restaurant. And I suppose it isn’t a big surprise that he hit the beach with blue toenail polish and smooth-shaved legs a few days later…

Also spotted: Denise Richards and Richie Sambora, looking like they were giving their relationship another go-around, with Denise’s daughters in tow. While here, Sambora tweeted, “Morning … Sunday breakfast in paradise .. thank god for today” …

And then there’s James Todd Smith, better known as LL Cool J, in town to film an episode for Hawaii Five-O

Hawaii photographer Russell Tanoue was caught on film when the French TV show Angels of Reality shot a segment here. One of the contestants/aspiring models on the show, Marie, booked him for a photo shoot … that then turned into a night at Pearl nightclub where two of the cast members performed. We won’t get to see it here, though … it only airs in Europe … (Exclusive Picture of Marie from the show)
