Amid a summer of too many cigarettes and not enough
sleep while prepping for his new syndicated hour-long gabfest, former
MTV talk show host Jon Stewart found one bright spot: returning
to MTV for its annual Video Music Awards and sharing the podium
with co-presenter Cindy Crawford.
"That is the most surreal thing that has
happened to me," gasps Stewart, 30. "I can't believe
she's cool and we get along. It's like when you have a fever and
the walls seem to be moving." So is Cindy dumping husband
Richard Gere and, as Stewart said from the stage, heading with
him to a tropical paradise to indulge in things sexual?
Alas, sighs Stewart, it was that pesky fever
talking. "For that to happen, there'd have to be some sort
of rope and ether involved."
