Hollywood came to Tampa this week for the Republican National Convention on behalf of The Creative Coalition, a nonpartisan nonprofit that advocates for funding of the arts. At the convention, Evan Handler of Sex and the City and Californication was among the actors gathered to talk to policy-makers about the importance of funding the National Endowment For the Arts and to promote the educational and economic benefits of the entertainment industry. At a reception on Wednesday, I had a chance to interview Evan, who told us that he wants his 5-year-old daughter to have the same access to the arts in public schools that he did. We also chatted with him about women's issues like abortion and birth control. Wach now!

Gisele Bundchen took her son Benjamin Brady to a park in Boston this afternoon. The duo are hanging out in Massachusetts while dad Tom Brady logs preseason practice time with the New England Patriots. The Pats went to New Jersey last night for a match against the New York Giants, but Tom actually sat things out. He took a breather from a packed schedule that included three games in 10 days but still has the unwavering support of Pats owner Robert Kraft. Robert Kraft praised Tom for his presence both on and off the field, saying Tom's "just got that quality. Certain people have that sincerity. He's a very genuine guy. People can relate to him. People can trust him." Tom will log more time on the road in the coming week, as his squad plays the Tennessee Titans away on Sunday. Gisele, though, is home after her own trip. Gisele promoted a teeth-whitening system on a trip to Brazil recently, showing that her second pregnancy isn't slowing her down.
Jay-Z carried his baby daughter, Blue Carter, this afternoon as they got off a helicopter in NYC. Jay and Blue were back in Manhattan after reportedly spending much of August at a rental in the Hamptons. If rumors about their renting a $400,000-per-month pad called Sandcastle are true, Jay-Z, his wife Beyoncé Knowles, and Blue would have been close to their good family friends Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin. Chris and Gwyneth have been hunkering down at their own beach home. Gwyneth and Chris made a rare public appearance together recently at a screening of Jake Gyllenhaal's End of Watch. Jay-Z has his own big project to focus on at the moment with the long-awaited opening of Brooklyn's Barclays Center on the horizon. He championed bringing the sports and music arena to his home borough, and will officially open the space with a string of concerts next month.
