Brooke’s latest gossip

Aloha, dumplings! Edgar and I are just back from the Maui wedding of Phillies teddy bear Shane Victorino, at which 500 of his and fetching bride Melissa Smith’s closest feted the couple. (She wore a strapless Pnina Tornai; Shane sported Tommys Hilfiger and Bahama.) Groomsman Jimmy Rollins looked especially delish, as did guests Ryan Howard and UFC muscleman Chuck Liddell. The best part? I mastered the hula! … Spotted at PR diva Kelly Boyd’s party for incoming D.A. Seth Williams: City Councilwoman Blondell Reynolds Brown, fashionistas Kate Egan and Stefanie Lutzo, and co-host Bill Sasso of Stradley Ronon. … Covering the rich and famous is hard, darlings, as anyone who’s competed with Carol Springer for a photo can attest. For years, the Main Line Times columnist has insisted on just-for-her pics of partygoers. But now comes word that La Springer’s bossiness has other photogs threatening boycotts. Say cheese!
