Rudy Giuliani, the former mayor of New York and President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, told New York Magazine in an interview that he’s “more of a Jew” than George Soros, the billionaire philanthropist and Democratic activist.

In 2011, casting director and art curator Lenora Claire was living her best life. She’d already led several colorful lives, in fact, as an original Hot Topic model, child actress, radio and TV host, nightlife figure, performance artist, and entertainment journalist. And now her underground art gallery, Pop tART — which showcased exhibits like “Golden Gals Gone Wild” (erotic depictions of the Golden Girls) and “Bettie Page: Heaven Bound” — had just earned her a feature as one of Los Angeles’s most interesting people in L.A. Weekly’s annual best-of issue.
