Somehow it’s helping me. I don’t know whether it a placebo or not. Last May at this time I jumped on the scale, and I weighed 195 pounds. I said, ‘You know what? I want to get down to 175.’ That was the weight I used to lie about on my license when I was a senior in college. Now I’m that girl. Ifeel terrific. Listen, I still eat candy like a madwoman. Istill enjoy cheese. Just now it’s a sometimes thing. I like bread on my hamburger, but Itake the top bun off. Little tiny modifications. I feel like a thoroughbred horse. I want to be bigger, stronger and faster than ever. I want be sleek and sharp, so here I am! You write a column for Life & Style about celebrities. Who’s on your radar right now? Iam really happy for the Lohan family. I think Michael Lohan has been a jerk in the past, but he’s taking steps. In a nutshell, Lindsay is in horrible denial. This is her sixth stint in rehab. I predict this won’t work. We could all be proven wrong, but now it seems her parents are fully committed. Maybe they’re on their way to healing. I’m going to sit back and watch. One thing she and I have in common is the addiction gene, and she needs the support of her family. Anyone else? In respect to Kate and Wills, that’s over there. I hope they have a healthy baby. I’m more curious about what’s happening with Kim and Kanye. People say a lot of things about Kim Kardashian, including me. The bigger wild card in this relationship and a reason to feel sorry for her — yeah I said it, feel sorry for her — is that Kanye is special with a capital S. What do you do when you’re in town? Bal Harbour Shops is fabulous, and, oh my God, Barton G. I get an outside table and a warm lamp. We order everything on the menu. Joe’s Stone Crab, too. We’re not so much into the nightlife. As far as going to Mansion? Meh! We like to lay low and be quiet. MADELEINE MARR “Busy is good,” says Wendy Williams driving to her home in New Jersey. Today, her plans include grocery shopping, Pilates and cooking dinner. “The phone is on the windshield,” the TV diva admits. Oh yeah: Williams also has a book to promote, Ask Wendy: Straight Up Advice for All the Drama In Your Life (Morrow, $25.99). The title is taken from a segment on her daytime talk show. Ask away 7 p.m. Saturday when Williams appears at Books & Books Coral Gables. She’s used to all sorts of questions, intimate and otherwise. And if she can’t answer, no doubt she’ll steer you in the right direction. What’s a common problem that many of your fans share? Read the chapter on girlfriend drama. There are a lot of women walking around with friends they should have broken up with a long time ago. When we think in terms of a breakups, we think about men. My motto is: Don’t put up with it, break up with it! I don’t care if she’s your best friend from kindergarten or college. Sometimes in life we outgrow friendships, and it’s painful. Do you have a lot of friends? Ihave people. If I want to buy a Gucci bag I know who to call to go to the mall. If I want to talk about drama with my career or 12-year-old son, there are women Icall. But no one person gets to hear my whole situation. My husband [Kevin Hunter] is my second best friend. The first is me. Are you into social media? If anyone wants to get into an argument with me on Twitter or Facebook, it’ll never happen in a million years. I love social media for the purpose of business, but I make a conscious effort to keep my personal life private. It works well not just for me but my son who’s going through adolescence. My husband is the wind beneath my wings, but he didn’t sign on to become a public figure. I have a peaceful, private home life that I wish to keep that way. You look fantastic. What are you doing differently? Pilates and cardio. Acupuncture centers me and helps me with my energy. I never thought I’d be the COMING TO TOWN Don’t be shy, ask Wendy people COMPILED BY MADELEINE MARR FROM MIAMI HERALD STAFF AND WIRE REPORTS Wilmer Valderrama will provide the closing arguments Saturday morning at the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute’s college readiness program, Ready to Lead at Miami Dade College, North Campus. The actor is the spokesperson for the organization that helps Latino high school students enter postsecondary education by motivating them to complete high school, empowering them to serve and lead in their communities and instilling abelief that going to college is achievable.

Earlier in the week, Jesse Eisenberg was on the show promoting his latest, Now You See Me , in between sharing magic tricks and fending off the amusing advances of Raul Gonzalez , channel- ing his cleaning lady character Dona Meche.

Speaking of Noah, our spies tell us he checked into the Shore Club at 7 a.m. Thursday “with a leggy blonde.” Not the same so-called socialite who infamously flipped him the bird; this was a different woman who joined Noah after a night of “post-loss partying at astrip club.” Brooklyn Nets player Kris Humphries spent Monday night at FDR at the Delano. The former Mr. Kardashian was seen partying until 2 a.m. with friends at a table and was with, says our spy, “an attractive dark haired girl with very similar coloring to Kim.” Following Crosby, Stills & Nash’s shows at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Stephen Stills was spotted in Tuesday in the Turnberry Isle Miami lobby and later lunching at the resort’s Cascata Grill.
