If you follow such things, you know there's a low-grade battle going on between The Grove/Americana developer Rick Caruso and?well, everybody standing in his way of manifest destiny in retail. He has designs on taking over the Glendale Galleria, and we wonder what it means that the long-established Sephora is closing up shop there and re-opening across the street at The Americana on January 28. Something else we're wondering?why Kate Walsh has her own perfume, and who the hell is buying it. It's mentioned in the same press release as the Sephora move, and it really has us scratching our heads. [Racked Inbox]
