and the night before, she was involved in a car crash...

not really surprising.

jon bon jovi admits to smoking a little reefer and dealing a little drugs as a teen. no - a kid growing up in jersey acting mischievous? i don't believe that!

says bon jovi -

“I did the drug thing very young and wised up very young too, because I was into drugs a little too much, I was entrepreneurial even then, buying quarter pounds of dope and trying to make a couple of bucks.”

apparently after smoking joint laced with pcp and hallucinating for a month he "wised up."

bon jovi is currently in the middle of his ten dates at the new prudential center in newark. i attended his amazing performance last sunday.


hayden panettiere is more than just a cast member on the show heroes. it just so happens she plays one in real life.

hayden and friends were in japan to try and save dolphins. it's the time of year in the land of the rising sun where the slaughtering begins. dolphins are brutally murdered - their death lasting up to ten minutes, leaving a sea of red behind them.

panettiere and a group of surfers from america and australia went as far as to swim out to the dolphins in an attempt to save the harmless mammals from the japanese fishermen. the life-threating confrontation lasted almost ten minutes, with the fishermen forcing the surfers to retreat.

do not get in la lohan's way as she exits a parking garage. actually, don't get in her bodyguard's way... he'll get a kick out of your family jewels - literally.

happy 23rd birthday...

ashlee simpson! who celebrated with bf pete wentz at an 80's prom-themed party.

i wonder where they got this idea from...

you havta hear this!

despite her first cd released yesterday since november 2005 - britney spears did absolutely no media or publicity on tuesday. instead - the mother of two opted for a typical, low-key day in which a judge ruled that she couldn't regain 50/50 custody of her children. brit then went home and ate fried chicken while watching a movie with enablers alli sims and sam lufti.

how do i know all this? because britney finally did an interview yesterday - although with this her second media appearance in as many months, maybe jive records would be doing everyone a favor by not scheduling britney appearances on the airwaves.

spears spoke with ryan seacrest at kiis-fm in los angeles this morning. of course when ryan called, britney had to be woken up by sims and lufti.

what ensued over the next twenty minutes could be described in a number of different ways. click here or here for perez's and tmz's account. click here to listen. or tune in to the show tonight for highlights from the interview.



is it because maxim placed her second on their ugliest women in the world list? did they try to make her to to rehab again?

why do you think amy winehouse is crying?

yup, everyone hates her.

even my catholics from new york state aren't happy with britney spears. not sure if you RAN to the store yet to pick up your copy of her latest cd - blackout, but the inside booklet is, well, trashy. what else would you expect from a mother of two, right?

in one picture, britney is sitting on the lap of a priest in a confessional. cue the angry clergy!

the new york daily news reports that the president of the new york-based catholic league called this a "bottom of the barrel" stunt - and that britney can't perform.

you know you have it bad when...

still pullin' for lilo...

maybe it's because i have a not-so-secret-crush on her (despite my relationship status and her's, and the fact that similar to many nepa women i see, she falls for douchebags) - but i'm still pullin' for lindsay lohan to get her life back together. this could have been two steps backward or one step forward, as the pap caught lilo leaving a mental health facility late sunday night.

nicole puts out the smoke...

nicole richie isn't too happy. the new york post just reported that she's been spotted throughout new york city smoking - yes, while preggo. now nicole's rep issued these pictures to tmz along with the facts - nicole hasn't been in the city since the diane sawyer interview - richie isn't even in the country. nicole along with her baby's daddy joel madden have been gallivanting throughout australia and thailand.

david copperfield - trick or treat on your voicemail?

so by now you know of a one david copperfield and his alleged conquests to bring women to his bahamas resort for a little sexy time. you've seen woman after woman step up and accuse, and copperfield's attorney bat down accusation after accusation.

but now, hear copperfield try and sweet talk these near-victims himself.

tmz obtained exclusive audio of copperfield leaving one person he met at a show a voicemail about an "opportunity" to have a "fun time" in the bahamas. this is one opportunity you can miss - or else!

hear the audio tonight on the ralphie radio show!


but - last night did suck.

after the bon jovi concert - things took a turn for the worse - literally. i navigated incorrectly down the jersey turnpike. then this and this happened.


if only my parents knew what i did in public...

currently blogging in the open - in the back of panera bread to be exact. ever since i purchased my new laptop, i made a commitment to myself and it that i'd take advantage of the emerging free wi-fi hotspots in the area and do a little more blogging/e-mailing/web browsing in various areas. not to say i mind my apartment, or work for that matter - but a little change of scenery never hurt anyone.

so here i am - placing the welfare of my brand new vaio in jeopardy over an eight dollar meal which consists of a half-greek salad (hold the onions), a bowl of low-fat chicken noodle soup, and a piece of whole-wheat bread.

a bottle of water is only a sip depleated. it sits behind the screen as i type.

i'm enjoying the ambiance of the panera so far. light jazz and chatter filter through my sony headphones and into my ears - although once i finish this post and open up the itunes i'm sure that'll change.

i'd love to share pictures from the weekend - however the photos currently sit on the memory card of my girlfriend's camera. usually i use my own - however it is currently in the care of the geek squad. in yet another sign that i am the most graceful person you know, i dropped the camera on the lens, while turned on, last week at ragz in dallas. thank goodness for accidental coverage at best buy.

anyways, the weekend turned out to be quite eventful. the gf and i aren't ones to cash in a lazy weekend, but this certainly ended up being a little more involved than either of us had expected.
after driving in late friday night - i hopped out of the studio around midnight, grabbed some pizza for us to enjoy - and called it a night at my apartment.

hang on, i'm a man of my word.

we awoke saturday morning and drove to clarks summit. among many other perks the gf lacks in her current residence of stamford, ct - two that we aimed to satisfy this weekend were the lakc of hayrides, or for that matter, open green spaces, and really good pizza. thanks to leggio's for the latter, which tasted delish friday night, and just as good, if not better during our impromptu saturday morning breakfast.

clarks summit took care of the other task at hand. miller's orchard is a festive site this time of year. leaves turning colors, pumpkins in all sizes spread throughout the land, and of course, the nascar-themed corn maze. we took in all of the sights - from my newly acquired pumpkin - to my newly acquired brown chuck taylors.

yes, in a state of absent-mindedness, i wore my beloved black and white converse sneakers to a farm. the kicks currently sit inside my gf's bedroom, awaiting a fierce cleaning.

we also took part in a little hayride. i won't lie, it turned out to be a great place to spend a beautiful fall afternoon. just remember to dress appropreitely, from head to toe.

we completed the throwbacked afternoon with an early dinner at the ground round, loaded potato skins included. then we headed home and dressed the part of 50's flapper and mobster for the costume party at ragz in dallas (once again - this is where i'd show you a picture).

after making a little noise in dallas - complete with 3,000 drink specials and discounted, homemade bar food - we met up with d-dubs, intern erin, and marino at friday's for a drink. but only one. we would need a full-night's rest for sunday's adventure.

this is when i tell you about the little surprise i laid on the gf friday night. below the trick-or-treat bag filled with reese's mini-cups, i hid a pair of tickets to bon jovi's sunday night show at the brand-new prudential center in newark, nj.

let the extended road-trip begin. we left sunday afternoon and drove to stamford - after quickly changing and dropping off the car, the gf hopped in the elantra and we drove down i-95 to newark.

won't lie, this review and this review made me a little weary of the show. clearly though the reviewer's saw an opening night show that differed from the one i witnessed. simply put - bon jovi killed it. i've never held someone from new jersey in such high regard. ever.

and yes, singing along to "livin' on a prayer" as it's performed live in jersey beat any other self-imposed rendition at any college bar i've ever drank at. ever.

after a night of sleep in the city that works, i'm now just south of the electric city, getting ready for the big bad radio show at the panera.
