Alec Baldwin and Harvey Weinstein have resolved their feud. To which you might say: Harvey Weinstein and Alec Baldwin were having a feud? They were! It involved Weinstein refusing to appear in a documentary Baldwin and James Toback are making, which prompted Baldwin to call him a mean name -- either "douchebag" or "a-hole," there are multiple accounts -- at a Calvin Klein party in Cannes last week. It took more than a week but Baldwin apparently slipped Weinstein an apology letter at the annual amFAR gala last night. It read: “HW, my apology to you and congratulations on a successful event. AB” (Thoughtful to include the HW, lest Weinstein had momentarily forgotten his identity.) Sources tell The New York Daily News that the apology came after some pleading earlier in the day by Kenneth Cole, the event's co-chair, who probably didn't want some tense Hollywood scene about a documentary few people will ever see upsetting his formal event. [Gatecrasher]

Oh geez: Brooklyn Lee and Tasha Reign, the porn stars who were photographed with Bill Clinton in Monaco, say that initially the Secret Service shooed them away when they tried to pose with the 42nd President of the United States, but that apparently Clinton "caught the girls out of the corner of his eye -- and ordered the SS [note: TMZ-speak for Secret Service, not the actual SS] to bring the girls back, at which point he posed for the infamous photo." Per both performers, the former president was "really sweet." [TMZ]

Joshua Jackson and Diane Kruger: Still not engaged! This despite the fact they've been dating forever and Jackson bought Kruger a $45,000 necklace at the Nights in Monaco shindig in Monte Carlo on Wednesday. Jackson's purchase was largely overshadowed by the fact a former American President posed for a photograph with the star of Fresh Meat 29. Apparently Jackson's gift was just one of those $45,000 "I love you, let's stay unmarried forever" gifts. [New York Daily News]

Noted pornographer Jenna Jameson was not photographed on the arm of Bill Clinton in Monaco Wednesday. But she was reportedly popped on a possible DUI early this morning "after her car struck a pole." (Have at it!) [TMZ]

Say, there's talk that Charlie Sheen is the winning bidder for Lawrence Taylor's Super Bowl ring. Sheen has an extensive collection of sports gewgaws, and once had a collection of rare baseball cards stolen, a fate that hopefully won't befall his second-hand Super Bowl ring.   [Page Six]

Anne Burrell, the peroxide-maned host of Food Network's Secrets of a Restaurant Chef, has confirmed she is gay. She was outed -- not maliciously, but still -- by fellow Food Network personality Ted Allen, who said earlier this month that Burrell is "dating a woman" during an interview. In a statement, Burrell said she's not mad at Allen, which is nice. [Page Six]
