Some Weekend: Cher, Faye, Halle … and Selleck’s ‘stache

Reese Witherpoon, Jake Gyllenhaal and the Hoff sweated it out in the desert this weekend for the Coachella Music Festival, while things heated up in L.A., too. At the TV Land Awards at the Gibson Amphitheater on Sunday, soaring temperatures and a lack of shade led to meltdowns on the red carpet. Well, makeup meltdowns to be exact. Reba McEntire got powder-puffed to control the damage, while other celebs, including Christina Applegate, skipped the arrivals line altogether. Once inside, cooler temps prevailed as host Neil Patrick Harris helped dole out honors to shows including "Married with Children," "M*A*S*H," "Magnum, P.I." and "Home Improvement." Another classic that has withstood the test of time: Tom Selleck’s ‘stache (pictured below)…

Halle Berry kept cool at the Beverly Hills Hotel for the Jenesse Silver Rose Gala & Auction to raise funds for the domestic violence intervention center, while Jim Gianopulos roasted lamb in his backyard for a Greek Easter celebration attended by his fellow peeps John Stamos, Rita Wilson and Nia Vardalos. My Big Fat Greek Easter anyone? Then, Vardalos headed to the Music Box Theatre @ Fonda to watch “Back to Bacharach and Hal David,” conceived and directed by Kathy Najimy. She also got the side benefit of proving once and for all that she and doppelganger Najimy are, in fact, two different people. Also toe-tapping to the Burt Bacharach and Hal David ditties? Helen Hunt, Marisa Tomei, Camryn Manheim, a very excited Ricki Lake, Steve Martin and Sheryl Crow. Ever wonder what happened to "American Idol" runner-up Diana DeGarmo? There she was onstage purring “What’s New Pussycat?” in a skimpy cleavage-baring number and fishnets. But that male audience member she smooched during the tune? Not Simon Cowell sadly …

Wearing even less: Kathy Griffin, who donned a bikini onstage at the GLAAD Awards on Saturday night. Her choice words as she picked up a Vanguard prize for her support of gays? “Suck it, Alba!” she taunted the hard-bodied actress, who had just presented an award. Fellow comedian Ellen DeGeneres, on the other hand, played it straight as she accepted her honor. She talked about her desire to fight for equal rights, not gay rights, and gave a shout out to wife, Portia de Rossi.
Alba also showed up to Kate Hudson’s 30th birthday party on Friday night at the home of Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell. Cher got down alongside Justin Timberlake, Demi Moore, Ashton Kutcher, Matthew McConaughey, Gwyneth Paltrow, Chris Martin, Gwen Stefani, Eva Mendes and Adam Sandler

The night before, Cher turned up at the LACMA for a tribute to her “Moonstruck” director Norman Jewison (pictured above with Faye Dunaway and Cher), who no doubt helped her nab that Oscar gold (that awesomely awful Oscar outfit, however, he had no control over). Meanwhile, Drew Barrymore got dipped by director Michael Sucsy at the Grauman’s Chinese Theatre for the "Grey Gardens" debut in L.A., and Mickey Rourke reunited with his “9 ½ Weeks” co-star Kim Basinger. This time it was for some good, clean fun, though: the premiere of their flick, “The Informers.”
