REALITY CHECK: George Hamilton and Alana Stewart Hamilton, among the throngs of celebrities who have opened their lives to the world of reality-TV, spent two days last week shopping in Saks Fifth Avenue and yukking it up for the cameras. There was plenty of dishy banter for the cameras to pick up when George, a shopoholic, picked up a sweater that Alana pointed out "you already have six of." On Friday, the duo went back to shop for cosmetics — for George — and browsed the sunless tanning offerings of several counters. He settled on a head massage from a sales associate at the YSL counter.SAY CHEESE: After Marshall Field’s named "Mr. Las Vegas," Wayne Newton, to headline its Glamorama benefit on Aug. 9, it’s no surprise the caliber of stars that have joined the bandwagon. The entire Hilton clan is expected to arrive in Chicago for the event, with Paris and Nicky hitting the runway for a fashion show and parents Richard and Kathy in tow.SO MUCH FOR A CONCEALER — AUCOIN’S FAMILY AND BOYFRIEND GO TO WAR: When celebrity makeup artist Kevin Aucoin died of complications from a brain tumor back in May, the fashion industry rallied together in praise of his artistic talents and incredible work for gay rights. But now, a more complicated picture has begun to emerge. His boyfriend, Jeremy Antunes, who was not written into the will, was kicked out of the couple’s apartment by Aucoin’s parents and has given a stunning interview to New York Magazine. The article alleges, among other things, that Aucoin had become severely addicted to painkillers and that the relationship was being destroyed by it. Making matters all the more confusing are the allegations of Aucoin’s ex-boyfriend and business partner Eric Sakas, who is (along with Aucoin’s parents) claiming that Antunes is an opportunist looking to get a piece of the estate. By the end of the piece, the only person who looks clean is the journalist, Ariel Levy. BARNEYS IS IN THE PICTURE: Barneys New York is looking to the film industry for inspiration these days. Next Thursday night, the retailer is hosting a party at its L.A. store for noted producer Robert Evans. In conjunction with the fete, Barneys’ L.A. windows will feature blown up still shots from Evan’s documentary "The Kid Stays in the Picture" as well as additional photos from his private collection. In New York, the theme turns to the Swinging Sixties with the upcoming Austin Powers film "Goldmember." On July 16, the store’s New York windows will feature ensembles from the film as worn by Mike Myers and Heather Graham. Yeah baby!
