1) According to Braden Keil, Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin are pissing off their Amagansett neighbors by building a big wall around their 2.2-acre estate. Then again, the neighbors are probably just jealous about the deal the Paltrow-Martins got. [Braden Keil/Gimme Shelter]
2) Word on the street is that Switch Building broker Avi Voda has been passing around the link to the Jessica Alba item as a promotional tool. Is this an inadvertant confirmation? No word on whether the apartment is for her brosef.
3) Newscaster and hawk hater Paula Zahn is out at tony 927 Fifth Avenue. She's getting a divorce and starting anew in a $40,000/month rental at the Siena on East 76th Street. You see what happens when you fuck with Pale Male? [Keil]
4) In what is assuredly not an indication of what's wrong with the record business, British pop singer Lily Allen's label is putting her up in a $10,000/month apartment overlooking the Hudson (Atelier?) while she makes YouTube videos and goes to parties. [NYMag]
