The briefing

'SHOPGIRL' SHINDIG: That was quite an all-star party that Tina Brown and Sir Harold Evans threw at their E. 57th St. manse Monday night for the cast of "Shopgirl" - namely Steve Martin, Claire Danes and Jason Schwartzman. While the dazzling Danes held court at her table, Schwartzman and Martin dutifully worked the crowd. "I'm schmoozing!" Martin announced as he dropped by one table after another. Responding to Brown's toast of welcome, the white-maned comic-actor-writer initially stood up, raised his glass, gazed searchingly around the room and then wordlessly resumed his seat - getting a big laugh from the likes of Regis and Joy Philbin, Phil Donahue and Marlo Thomas, Phyllis George, designers Zac Posen and Narciso Rodriguez, and CNN president Jonathan Klein and his MSNBC counterpart Rick Kaplan. I found myself sitting with the magnificent Lillian Ross, the legendary New Yorker writer, who subjected me to a withering interrogation. "Why," Ross demanded, "do you write a gossip column?" Hmmmm. To pay the rent?

Thanks to KMT
