some random notes for the weekend...

- last night's "bobbing for iPods" contest at the woodlands was hilarious. you will do anything for a free ipizzle huh? like women, full makeup and club attire, getting drenched to grab an apple with their mouth. when i say drenched - i mean head looks like they just took a dip in the pool/grabbed a shower.

atleast fresh towels are provided.

- tonight will be dope their as well. once again YA BOY marino will be hosting the festivities with club bht live to air. i will be gracing the complex with my appearance around midnight. in tow will be one of my college roommates, eric. or as we refer to him, "e" (clearly in homage of eric murphy).

- purchased a couple magazines last night that would seriously put my heterosexuality into question. us weekly... no biggie. people... thats not too bad.


jessica alba graces this month's cover. but what caught my eye (besides her) was the headline "my boyfriend didn't change his boxers for 3 months!"

damn. expect me to talk about this on-air next week.

back to my iced mocha and the big bad radio show. more posts to come before club bhtizzle, hang on now.


potential stalker issue is bourne.

well this wins today's award for "cutest marketing scheme." of course, matt damon stars in the new movie, the bourne ultimatum. the good people who are in charge of spreading the good word about the movie decided to buy some ad space in manhattan. that's smart.

but this is questionable.

that is a big billboard - hanging on the apartment building that a one matt damon lives in.

so technically - that should say like "everyday... bourne comes home." maybe even print his schedule up on that ish.

just a thought...

vinny chase in the buildin'!

in case you didn't know, entourage is my favorite show on tv. big fan of the ari - but really i like every character (except dom from season three - he sucked).

so whenever a cast member makes headlines - whether it be the times or tmz, expect it here. exhibit a - adrian grenier, probably more familiar to you as vinny chase, or aquaman.

grenier partied in hollywood last night and then bought a dozen roses from one of those annoying ladies who goes around trying to sell flowers late at night. he then did the charitable thing by telling her to sell the flowers he just bought to make even more money. gotta love the vinny chase.

but afterward, adrian did the very un-chase-like thing of pestering the paparazzi for pestering him.

sorry, he does have a point though.

fashion smashion.

yo yo.

all set in my black dress shirt, silver tie, skinny jeans, and brand new converse sneakers for tonight at club x. wanna see the outfit? under 21 but above 18 and wanna enter fo free? call 877.971.wbht before 9 to get on the guest list. no, not t-pain plus three, but you plus one.

more fashion stuff... btw, you will soon figure out i have an addiction called shopping. went to the mall - and fell into the gap, for my first time ever! i know, lots of firsts this week. anywho, bought a pair of jeans for seven bucks! they're the slim morrison fit. the wash is pretty dope too. these will certainly debut over the weekend.

i then went to express and purchased a $40 tie. 'cause i make a lot of sense. it's a nice tie though (it's just black).

more celeb stuff before i head to da club. holler.

sorry fellas.

looks like mel b. has been married for over two months now.
according to perez hilton, scary spice, pictured here with boyfriend stephen belafonte, eloped on june 6th in las vegas.

mel b. is currently embattled with actor eddie murphy in a child support case regarding their daughter.

btw - june 6th should be marked down on your calendars... why? because it also happens to be my birfday!

go shawty... btw research shows that i share the same birthday as yankee outfielder hideki matsui, sax player kenny g, comedian colin quinn, the dalai lama, and uncle kracker.

wow, uncle kracker.


bad kisser searches for new bass player.

remember constantine maroulis?

yes, the former idol contestant the same season daughtry was robbed. tmz just posted this interesting little tidbit about him...

"Constantine Maroulis needs a new bassist -- his latest one pushed him off stage!TMZ was at the "Idol" wannabeen's concert at Stereo in New York last night, where the "rocker" got the ladies in the crowd all riled up -- when he suddenly went flying on top of them, accidentally falling after his bassist backed him over the edge. Ever the Beyonce, Maroulis got right back up and played it cool -- though he couldn't resist throwing his guitar player a friendly push after climbing back onstage."

click the picture to see it all go down.

a close friend actually "saw" constantine for a few months. she was in her later teens. regardless, she had less than flattering things to say about the wannabe idol, his ego, and his kissing skills (or lackthereof).

no word on if smooching had anything to do with the video above.

better late than never.

it took me 22 years, but earlier today while driving around wilkes-barre, i finally conformed with pop culture and all things cool.

yes, i purchased my first pair of chuck taylor converse sneakers.

they look exactly like the above. black with white canvas and laces. prolly will not be rocking the chuckie t's with shorts, but will definitely wear them with every pair of jeans i own. these bad boys could debut as early as thursday night's club x at the woodlands.

what took me so long? really don't have an answer. i've been preoccupied with other forms of footwear... from nike and adidas to steve madden and diesel. and don't get me wrong, i still wear my free's when i run.
and my steve maddens and other shoes out on the town. but the converse canvas with jeans, a rolled-up-sleeves-dress shirt, and loosened tie - screams trendy yet sophisticated. cool yet classy. badass yet...

well you get the idea.

the price is also appealing. with tax - a mere $32. where you buying trendy shoes from that cost under $35 now-a-days?


anywho - just thought i'd let you in my little shoebox of excitement. now if you don't mind, i'm going to scurry off to other things...

maybe i have a chance?

that is of course, if i was single... could you imagine the damage brit would do in the nepa - with so many college boys around here?

from us weekly...

"Britney Spears is on a tramp-age!
The latest man to fall into the hard-partying pop star’s orbit is Matt Encinias, a 21-year-old college student who tells Us Weekly the exclusive details of his twisted night with Spears in the latest issue.
In just five hours, Encinias went from being an extra in her latest video to pounding drinks and locking lips with the single mom of two in a rooftop pool at L.A’s Standard Downtown hotel.
Although Spears was expecting her two young sons to be dropped off at her Beverly Hills home at noon (as per her custody arrangement with their father, Kevin Federline), the singer had arranged to have the pool reopened at 2 am for the exclusive use of her group, which included then-assistant Shannon Funk and some hand-picked male extras from her video shoot.
“Britney was the first one to undress, and then everyone else followed,” Encinias tells Us. “I turned around and saw that she was topless and she had fake tattoos of flowers on her nipples from the shoot.”
“I was told all she wanted to do that night was kiss a boy,” the 5’10” California native continues. "And that’s what she did. Mission accomplished.”
It was when the alcohol started running low that an inebriated Spears, 25, suggested a game of Truth or Dare. “I was dared to get naked and get out of the pool and walk as though I was on a catwalk in a fashion show,” says Encinias. “Britney was laughing really hard.”
But what happened later when they went back to Britney’s hotel room? For more on Spears’ wild night at the Standard Hotel, including the latest details on her custody battle with Kevin Federline, pick up the new issue of Us Weekly, on newsstands this week."

dilated pupils.

and i thought trips to the dentist were rough...

after leaving the studio last night at midnight and heading to bed around 3:30a, i woke up around 8a to head to the optomitrist in kingston. i have this condition in my right eye. long story, but i can see fine, and if you ever meet me in public, ask me and i'll be more than happy to explain.

but seriously, have you ever visited an eye doctor?

i've never had more strain placed upon my pupils. ever. atleast not since seeing fools rush in. nonetheless, my eyes went through a number of tests, photo shoots, and liquid droppings in order to obtain a proper diagnosis. had to wear sunglasses for a few hours after, but now my vision is cool. or atleast good enough to type.

got back to the apartment before 11a, and decided i'd walk to abe's here in wb to find breakfast, or atleast a hot dog and tuna sandwich. turns out abe's, just like my dry cleaners, is on vacation. so to wilkes university and einstein bagels it was.

now that i'm no longer doin' the steve wonder across nepa, i'm going to get ready for tonight's show. more updates to come before seven.

and don't forget - last chance to qualify for beyonce/robin thicke tickets is tonight!


...the nominees are.

mtv announced the nominees for the 2007 vma's during trl today. justin and beyonce lead the pack with seven nods a piece.

you can vote for your favorite new artist here.

the vma's air sunday, sept. 9th at 9 from the palms casino in vegas.

my mtvizzle source tells me that the red carpet the celebs walk will run through the casino gaming floor. the people at the palms literally have to rearrange slot machines and card tables for all of this to happen. should be pretty bad-ass.

just as BA will be the fantasy suite parties hosted by big names and broadcasted from during the show. e! reports that justin timberlake and vma DJ and producer timbaland will be co-hosting one of these.

of course, all week we qualify you to see the vma-nominated beyonce friday night in philly!

celebrities can dish too.

(when the going wasn't rough for nick and paris)

tmz reports that our sister station in nyc, 95.5 plj, nick carter didn't say nice things about his ex-boo, paris hilton. nick was on the show to promote bsb's new song, which according to my boss, is actually pretty good. anyways, click here to listen to the audio.

britney's a mess.

anyone know what's going on here?

let's play a game...

here we go... name the former boy-banders!

that guy on the left was actually in a boy band?
check the comments page for the answers!

tonight on the ralphie radio show.

(nice armpit)
(guy who sings lost without you)

(me and bhtizzle).
your chance to qualify for tickets to see the two in philly friday night, plus backstage passes to meet robin thicke.
you know how we do. big hot tickets.




not going to waste time with an introduction, because that can be accomplished by reading the bio to the right. but in case you haven't figured it out, or have stumbled across this blog accidently, my name is ralphie, and i currently host a weeknight show on 97bht in scranton/wilkes-barre.

the blog will be a running account of my adaptation to life in the area i will commonly refer to as "the nepa." i'll also fill these spaces with the "best of" current celeb gossip, photos, and youtube videos. btw - my youtube channel can be accessed by clicking here.

hmm... what else... i own a digital camera, so expect funny pictures and photographic accounts of concerts, road trips, and other events of interest. i know perez hilton. he's used stuff from me a couple times on his site. hasn't given me credit, but you'll see screen shots of the e-mails to legitimize my claims. for that matter, i meet a lot of celebs, so expect stories and photos.

btw - my first time ever in "the nepa" was my sophomore year of college. i traveled here to party with the black eyed peas. the peas were playing a show in e. stroudsberg. ask me about it sometime - i learned how to party like a rockstar, shop boyz style.

another btw - i cannot share my myspace or facebook URLs. but i'll give you a hint - i use ralphie aversa in each.

and yes, that's my birth-name. well ralph aversa to be exact. i'm half italian, quarter greek, quarter armenian. any armenians in nepa? holler at me.

perez posted this. amy winehouse - simpsonized. seriously, who hasn't been simpsonized since this damn movie was released?
am i crazy for wanting one of these?

they're available at hasselhoff.com. i'll take the black one to the bottom left, hold the sloppy burger.

and final btw - big hot tickets returns with your chance to snag a pair of tix to see beyonce and robin thicke friday in philly. qualifying funness begins tonight.
