When Dr. Mehmet Oz, the renowned daytime television personality, came to Rabbi Shmuley Boteach’s Shabbat table, he was surprised at all the sugary food.  “Shmuley, how can you do this to your children?” Shmuley pleaded innocent. “My wife did it,” he said.

The rabbi told the story at a recent dinner of his organization, This World: The Values Network, at the Marriott Marquis in Manhattan. The event, attended by 525 guests, benefited the Rambam Medical Center in Israel.

The comedians who populate the ranks of the New York Friars Club have endured beyond their expiration date. When we ask “how old is he” the answer is “deceased.”  George Burns passed on at 100; Henny Youngman departed at 92.

Even comedians’ marriages last forever. Ginny and Bob Newhart have been married 50 years; Barbara and Don Rickles, 48 years. Newhart has a theory: “I think if you can keep laughing you will stay together.”

Not only did Mandy Patinkin make a living playing a hot-shot surgeon on the CBS series “Chicago Hope” in the ‘90s, but he’s been blessed by medical science in real life.

Between 1978 and 1998, when he was stricken with an eye disease called keratoconus and feared he was going blind, doctors saved his eyesight with corneal transplants. “I have two eyes that were given to me by two children, a 13-year-old boy and a 14-year-old girl,” he said.

Michael Bloomberg is wrapping up his 12th year as mayor of the greatest city on the planet, and he’s wasting no time planning his future.

At the annual Jewish Community Relations Council awards dinner at the Pierre Hotel, where he was the guest of honor, the mayor faced the prospect of unemployment by announcing, “If anyone has any ideas, I work for a dollar a year.”

They weren’t really needed by the 35,000 marchers in the Celebrate Israel Parade up Fifth Avenue on June 2, but there they were: several pet dogs accompanying their owners, presumably to keep perps at bay. One cute pup even wore an IDF jacket. Fortunately there was no ruckus as the pooches passed a bomb sniffing dog.
