Daily dish … A spicy serving of celebrity news

‘Seinfeld’ in brief reunion?

It may be all about nothing, but that would only be appropriate.

Looks like the cast of “Seinfeld” has gotten together to do something – not a big thing – but something that amounts to a reunion … of sorts. And we may know by the time the Super Bowl ends Sunday night.

Jerry Seinfeld himself planted a few tantalizing hints this week, when responding to questions about recently being seen filming a scene (or something) with Jason Alexander (that’s George, as if anyone has forgotten) at the New York diner Tom’s Restaurant, now famed as the Seinfeld characters’ favorite meeting place (though really only used in establishing exterior shots; the interiors were shot on a set in California).

What Seinfeld said on WFAN radio was that the cast had indeed gotten together to film a one-off scene of some kind, something short in duration but longer than 60 seconds. (That seemed to scotch the idea that the scene would be part of a Super Bowl commercial.) And that the result would be seen “very soon.”

Watch her singing

Miley Cyrus wants you to concentrate on her voice – not her twerking – when she launches her tour next month.

“Ren and Stimpy” creator John Kricfalusi and contemporary artist Ben Jones have crafted videos to play during the 38 shows as Cyrus prioritizes singing over dance routines.

“When it’s such a visual show, I’m not going to get up there and dance because I’ve got to sing live,” Cyrus said in an interview Thursday night. “So it’s like to have things that people can watch other than me … not about me trying to keep up with choreography.”

The 21-year-old performer spoke at a rehearsal studio two days after performing with – and spanking – Madonna at her “MTV Unplugged” concert this week. She found the 55-year-old star a kindred spirit in displaying unabashed eroticism.

Her North American tour kicks of Feb. 14 in Vancouver.
