Young Hollywood, the friendly celebrity news site repped by CAA, has plans for 500 original hours of programming in Jan. 2015 that will be distributed via apps across devices belonging to market leaders including Amazon Fire TV, Roku, Samsung and Sony as well as those that run on iOs or Android. YH is headquartered at the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills, and CEO RK Williams is an LA native, and attended Crossroads in Santa Monica. [Variety]
Will.i.am recently introduced a device called the PULS which is much more than a watch; it has a watch in it, but it also has a GPS map system, a music player, fitness tracker that tracks your steps, weight and calories burned, social network sites like Facebook and Twitter, can hold 1 GB of memory, 16 GB storage, bluetooth connectivity, and runs on a proprietary OS.

TPG Capital has raised its ownership stake in CAA from 35 percent to more than 50 percent, The Hollywood Reporter has learned less than a week after talks were first reported. Silver Lake became majority owner of rival WME when it financed the agency’s acquisition of IMG this year. TPG has many investments, some of which include Ducati, MGM, Neiman Marcus, J. Crew, and Uber. [THR]
Last night O’Gara Coach and The Agency invited their rolodexes up to a home (listed with The Agency for $33M) on Collingwood just above Sunset Plaza. Patrón was the only drink of choice but multiple Lamborghinis were on display in the home’s front driveway and subterranean garage including several of the new Huracán and a countach recently re-popularized by the Wolf of Wall Street (Leo drove one to the Country Club on the 1981 Quaaludes, remember?). The house is listed with Brendan Fitzpatrick (wo is currently on E!’s Rich Kids of Beverly Hills), Blair Chang and Mauricio Umansky — who were all present at the party. En route up the hill we stopped by Wildfox’s first bash in their new Sunset Plaza store and later Flaunt’s big rager at the Thompson hotel on Wilshire with Saks which drew a good crowd (more deets coming).
