Celebrity couple Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson are headed for their second divorce. For anyone who lost track, the pair announced a reconciliation last year, days after news broke that Griffith had filed divorce papers, citing irreconcilable difference. Griffith, 37, and Johnson, 45, have a 5-year-old daughter, Dakota. They first married in 1976, divorced two years later, then remarried in 1989. Now they have released a statement saying they both want to proceed with divorce No. 2. The good news is they still share a publicist.
Long lunches are a problem when you invite a business crowd, so you can bet next year's ONE luncheon will have a shorter program than the one yesterday at the Sheraton-Boston. By the time James A. Johnson (Fannie Mae chairman) stood to address the crowd that had gathered to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Organization for New Equality, many of the invitees had to hit the road. Nonetheless, a crowd that included Carolyn Hebsgaard (Coalition of 100 Black Women); Richard Taylor (Blue Cross-Blue Shield VP); Cynthia Moore (Anheuser-Busch regional rep); Joan Wallace Benjamin (Urban League CEO); Lenny Zackim (ADL regional director); and, of course, ONE head Rev. Charles Stith and his wife, Dr. Deborah Prothrow-Stith, were on hand to see Johnson, the Black Ministerial Alliance and Chamber of Commerce monarch Fletcher (Flash) Wiley gather their awards.
