We think Kanye West might have just pulled a reverse Mark Sanford this week, telling friends he was going on a spiritual self-exile to India to “find himself,” only to be found much closer to home, shopping with his bald beauty at Whole Foods. Elsewhere, we’re feeling good about our prediction that Phillipe Chow is strictly star bait, seeing Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom kick off the first red carpet appearances from which all others may follow. Then, Tim McGraw taught us a trick to skip the wait at Pink’s, money required. Where else have celebs been eating and posing for pretty pictures in L.A.? Take a look.
