Town’s latest chapter

Pub gets a new 'Starter' in book game

Wednesday’s fete to celebrate the publication of Gigi Levangie Grazer‘s third book, “The Starter Wife” (Simon & Schuster), was less a launch party than a coronation; the confetti replaced by pink and blue Uggs — an item that looms large in Grazer’s narrative.

Among those who overfilled the Polo Lounge’s private room at the BevHills Hotel were hubby Brian Grazer and his “Cinderella Man” star Russell Crowe, Ron Meyer, Brad Grey, Ed Limato and Jim Wiatt.

Also on hand were fellow gimlet-eyed L.A. scribes Bruce Wagner and Jackie Collins.

“I think what she’s doing is great,” said Collins, who is completing her 25th book. “We write about the real Hollywood.”
