SEXY SCREEN STAR Cameron Diaz (In Her Shoes) and former ‘N Sync frontman Justin Timberlake were having a blast while frolicking on the beach in front of their hotel last week before a paparazzo appeared and spoiled it all. Had the unwelcome photographer been dressed in beach attire she might have gone unnoticed - it wasn’t very bright showing up with a camera, all dressed in black ...

Not too far from the excitement and going pretty much unnoticed was Adam Sandler, holding his newborn daughter ...

I wonder if either Cameron or Adam got to catch any of those decent South Shore waves while here. Both are students of Masters pro Hans Hedemann ...

Pal Joe Esposito sent me a copy of his new book, Remember Elvis - and who should remember Elvis better than Joe? He was Elvis’s friend from their Army days in Germany, and he remained a close friend, confidant and road manager throughout Elvis’s post-Army career. The book is full of interesting stories and anecdotes about Elvis by people who admired and knew “The King of Rock ‘n’ Roll.” A must for Elvis fans - order online from www.TCBJOE.com ...

John Noland will be back on the airwaves as of Aug. 21 with his own radio show on K-108 AM. With more than 20 years in the broadcasting industry, John should have a lot of good talk going on with his posse of movers and shakers ...

Shameless plugs: Izakaya Nonbei - Don Ho‘s favorite Japanese restaurant - is a real gem in the middle of crowded Kapahulu. The sliding shoji doors reveal an authentic Japanese tavern with a lengthy list of tasty dishes and an impressive sake list. It’s open ‘til 11:30 p.m. daily and is oh-so-relaxing after a hectic day ...

This week in 1967 ... The Young Rascals and The Byrds performed two nights at the Arena. Following their appearance in Honolulu, we took Eddie, Felix, Dino and Gene on their first island tour. The group was so inspired by the beauty of our islands that Eddie Brigati and Felix Cavaliere penned what would become their most popular local hit, My Hawaii.
