Kate showed up for her student ID, in her first days at Allentown College (now DeSales University). The junior staffing the table already knew who she was. "I gave him my name and he said, 'You're a politics major, right?' I was a little freaked out. " She'd missed the orientation and Jim, a politics major with a good memory, had taken note. Over a boisterous dinner with mutual friends, they learned that both loved sports, cherished their Catholic faith, and had grown up in large families; Jim is the oldest of five, and Kate is one of eight.

When Chloe Winters celebrated her 11th birthday, no biggie. Turning 10½, however, required a blowout bash. The half-birthday custom is five years going for the Montgomery County tween - with a July 9 birthday, it's a tradition based on practicality, says her mom, Kate. "It's usually the holiday week and no one's ever around, school's out, everyone's at the Shore or at camp," Kate said. "Birthdays are special and they should be celebrated. " Chloe loves the arrangement - and so do a growing number of birthday boys and girls.

Hello there Kate was getting ready for a Fourth of July 2010 barbecue when her friend Melissa, who was going with her, asked if she could bring her friend Bettner. Sure, Kate said. This was a come-one, come-all kind of summer shindig. Kate caught Jon Bettner's eye at hi. "She was a tall blonde with blue eyes wearing white jeans," Jon said. "That's a trifecta for me. " Jon assumed Kate was dating someone at the party, but enjoyed their conversation. Kate did, too. "I thought Jon was funny.

This is a different sort of Kate Winslet than we've come to expect. In Labor Day - a romance, a drama, and a woman's fantasy of what men, perhaps, should be - the British actress plays Adele Wheeler, a fragile, frightened single mother too wary of the outside world to even get in the car and drive to the market. The year is 1987, the place a small New Hampshire town. Adele's 13-year-old boy (a very good Gattlin Griffith ) has assumed many of the domestic responsibilities.

J USTIN BIEBER. You are so not taking my niece to the prom in nine years. Why such a future rejection, you ask, oh, once-sweet pop star? I'll be honest. It was yesterday morning's drunken/stoned/stupid/stupor arrest in Miami Beach for drag racing. And resisting arrest. And DUI (that you admitted). And dropping F-bombs to cops like they were "Yes, sirs. " And driving with an expired Georgia license (06/24/2013, to be precise). Also, the way you rolled up the sleeves of your red prison shirt.

SUPER-DUPER model Kate Upton was in Philadelphia this weekend with her on-again, off-again boyfriend, Detroit Tiger Justin Verlander , who was in town for core-muscle surgery last week. I hear that on Friday the duo hit up the Melting Pot (1219 Filbert St.) and on Saturday they chose Del Frisco's (1426-28 Chestnut St.). My tipster says that Upton and Verlander and three others sat in the mezzanine and that she kept it low-key, opting for not much makeup. Many people dining near her didn't even recognize her. I hear Upton and party dined on the calamari and the cheesesteak dumplings, as well as a bottle of cab that got dropped off at the table.
