Another Bush Busted
The youngest son of Florida Gov. Jeb Bush was charged with public intoxication and resisting arrest in Austin early yesterday, law enforcement officials say. According to one affidavit, President Bush's nephew pushed an officer.
John Ellis Bush, 21, was arrested in the entertainment district around 2:30 a.m., was taken to a hospital for treatment of a cut on his chin, then sent to jail. He was released at 10:30 a.m. on $2,500 bond and personal recognizance.
The governor's daughter, Noelle Bush, was arrested in 2002 on fraudulent prescription charges, later dropped after a stint in rehab. The president's daughters, Jenna and Barbara, were charged with underage drinking in 2001, also on Austin's club strip.
Goodwill on the Runway
Secondhand clothes at a black-tie affair? Goodwill of Greater Washington is holding its first fashion show and gala tonight -- cocktail reception, four-course dinner -- to raise money for the charity.
Models will sashay down the runway in Goodwill attire, and a silent auction will offer a trip to Hawaii, an autographed copy of "Where's the Rest of Me?," an autobiography of Ronald Reagan, and a samurai sword. In Goodwill fashion, 90 percent of the auction items were donated.
Funds raised will go toward employment services, but spokesman Brendan Hurley noted that the organization hasn't forgotten about Katrina evacuees: "We're collecting money and coordinating with the Red Cross to provide shopping vouchers to evacuees at D.C. Armory."
While the party will benefit Goodwill, don't expect a thrifty price to get in -- admission is $350. Hurley said ticket sales ended last night, but walk-ins are welcome (with the proper fee, of course).
Tonight's festivities begin at 6 at the Ronald Reagan Building. Now, vogue!
Looking for Fan Mail
It's not a competition, but . . . document management company Pitney Bowes got celebs to design envelopes as part of its campaign to promote literacy. And some are just a little -- okay, a lot -- more creative than others.
"Desperate Housewives" star Eva Longoria drew multihued flowers, Ben Affleck wrote a blathering scrawl, and Sen. Joe Lieberman (D-Conn.) slapped on the official seal of the United States. Make that yourself, Joe?
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) drew an Arizona state flag, actress CCH Pounder addressed hers to "Illiteracy/Any Where/In the World" with the return address "To Reading," and race car driver Jeff Gordon's features a picture. Of himself.
Pitney Bowes spokesman Matt Broder said his favorite is by magician team Penn & Teller, which says: "Do NOT read 'Moby Dick' until you're 40 years old."
As of yesterday 74 envelopes had been collected. They'll be up for a minimum bid of $25 on eBay starting Monday. We call dibs on Jeff Gordon's!
* Newlyweds/impending exes Renee Zellweger and Kenny Chesney both issued statements yesterday after the actress filed for an annulment Wednesday. "Fraud" was listed as the reason in the filing, but "fraud" doesn't mean "fraud," Zellweger explained. It's "simply legal language and not a reflection of Kenny's character." Said cryin' country star Chesney: "This is an incredibly sad time. . . . I just hope everyone can respect the privacy that I know Renee has already asked for."
