This week, her Oprah-sty took Manhattan by storm, hitting Serendipity 3, Dylan’s Candy Bar, and Planet Hollywood with her girl Gayle King and some lucky young ladies from her South African Leadership Academy. But she was just one of several celebs biting their way around the Big Apple this week: Daniel Craig, Hugh Jackman, and Matt Dillon were out and about, too — plus, A-Rod had a very special meet-the-parents brunch with Kate Hudson, Goldie Hawn, and Kurt Russell. All that and more, in this week’s Celebrity Settings.
