July 22nd, 2008: Russell Simmons was at the Ivy today with Brett Ratner. Strange, I know, but apparently they are organizing discussions on Jewish-Muslim relations. The funny part is watching as Brett Ratner seems so enamored with the paps attention, even so they all turn to focus on Russell. I've never seen someone try so hard (other than Phoebe) to make themselves available for the photogs, but time and time again they snub him. What can you say, Russell is the man.
