Just in time for his recent marriage to actress Drew Barrymore, art consultant William Kopelman has sold his bachelor pad in West Hollywood for $885,000. Built in 2004, the two-bedroom, two-bathroom home had been featured five years ago in Elle Decor. The 1,548 square feet of loft space includes an upper level office looking down on the double-height living room, white high-gloss floors and lacquer cabinetry, a built-in bar that closes up inside a wall and large windows.

Having lunch with jewelry designer Loree Rodkin is like devouring a juicy Hollywood novel. First to be discussed are her famous affairs -- with Don Henley, Bernie Taupin and Richard Gere. Then her lifelong friendships with Cher and Elton John, and her extraordinary once-in-a-lifetime experiences, such as being introduced to Paris by Salvador Dali and propositioned by Jimi Hendrix (she turned him down). It's no wonder that she's had two offers to option her life story. Not that Rodkin is a party girl.

In any arena, there are only two ways to truly live like royalty: down in the front row, rubbing elbows with VIPs and athletes, or up in the boxes, observing everything from a God's-eye view. The new Hyde Lounge at Staples Center was born on the court floor but is opting for ascension. Night-life impresario Sam Nazarian and Tim Leiweke, president and chief executive of AEG, the company that owns and operates Staples Center, were supposedly sitting court side at a Lakers game last May when they shook hands on the deal that would bring Hyde to downtown L.A. On a recent game night, the club's lofty ambitions were drifting into the stratosphere.

Outside, the world is a series of threatening figures. A demanding boss, an eager girlfriend, a landlord impatient with the noise of rock 'n' roll drum practice. Inside, the world is a rocker's dream, a toyland, an improvised recreation center. Such is the bifurcated world of Steven Banks, who, in his "Steven Banks Home Entertainment Center," which premieres tonight at 9:30 on Showtime, reprises the show that has earned glowing notices both in Los Angeles and San Francisco (where this one was taped)

One day after reporting the end of a romance between billionaire Donald Trump and a former beauty queen, a New York newspaper today said Trump's friend secretly lived for weeks in the same building as his wife and children. The Daily News said Trump had hidden Marla Maples in his luxurious Trump Tower building in mid-town Manhattan. "Marla (was) hidden right under Ivana's nose," said the News, calling it, "Trump's towering deception." Trump's spokesman declined to comment.

To see the architect of the moment's idea of the definitive bachelor pad, check out the January issue of Playboy, due on newsstands this week. As part of a six-page photo spread devoted to his model of the dwelling, Frank Gehry also muses about Playboy ideals, urban living and designs he has yet to do. "I haven't done a skyscraper, that big phallic thing. Everyone wants to have the world's biggest erection," Gehry is quoted as saying.
