Chit Chat

January 25, 2010

What an inspiring weekend!   While it is my sincere wish that none of us would need to deal with the realities in Haiti, it was a distinct honor to speak with George Clooney, MTV, Adrian Paul and a host of uber fabs who understand that to make a difference we are all one world and one “family”.

My prayers and my “goods” go out to the people of Haiti as each read of my articles at

You are uber fab so embrace it!

Taking Care of Business Source: TMZ

Hey my uber fabs check out my latest article here…  The King of Pop  is still taking care of his own

http://www.examiner.com/examiner/x-24825-Miami-Pop-Culture-Examiner~y2010m1d15-It-Takes-a-Village-or-Michael-Jacksons-Estate-to-Raise-a-Child#

Tis’ the season to forget that it “tis the season”… In fact, even after JUST taking some “me time” to give back to the community that has supported me in so many ways… I still must admit the Uber was sucked right out of MY Fab as I found I was having an A.M. (Atomic Moment)…Not a B.M. ( Duh you know what that is…. Ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwh!) over something as silly as…Well it was the LAST string of non-twinkling, five foot, multi-circuit… Annnnnnywayyyyyy,  this has become a season of forgetting not remembering.

  • Forgetting to say “Please” and “Thank you”
  • Forgetting that many of us do have enough while others will go without
  • Forgetting that holiday gatherings are about responsibility and getting behind the wheel of a car drunk is simply unacceptable
  • Forgetting that to give of yourself and your time is a precious gift that WILL make a difference

So for that, I want do something I rarely do, but it is in the name of an amazing cause and some very special friends… Max Ryan (Sex and the City II) and Kevin Sorbo (Hercules and Andromeda)… I am going to share a link from my new UCUNNBFF (Uber, Cool, Uber, Newsie, New, Best, Friend, Forever) Christine (Chris) Morrow of CNN – Her article and event is no less remarkable then the people who made it happen.

Tis’ the season so GET YOUR TIS’ ON!

Today, I must admit I feel a bit hesitant to drink any liquid whatsoever…Yes water is the nectar of the gods, but considering I am a walking pin cushion after my most recent Botox treatment, I wonder (never short of OUT LOUD) if I may end looking like a Grecian Fountain… Line free, crack free and ooh so deliciously wrinkle free… Now let me set the record straight:

  1. I can raise my eyebrows
  2. I can raise my eyebrows
  3. I can raise my eyebrows

Annnnnywayyyy enough about me and more about my new SDSSQAGBFF  or  (Smart, Driven, Socialite, Slightly Quirky, Always Gorgeous Best Friend for Ever, Dianne York-Goldman – President/CEO – La Jolla Spa MD  (Now that’s the kind of blatant plug I lovvvvvvvve).

big-blog-dianne-york-goldman

So what’s the buzz on a CEO…Oh Ye of little face Dianne is so much more!  If “ugly is the new pretty”, no one has told her, nor have they told the cast of her reality show blockbuster Addicted to Beauty brought to you by none other than Oxygen!  OHHHH how deliciously cliché!

FACTOID ALERT: Recognized internationally as a media expert, speaker, author, model and businesswoman. Dianne is the creator of the popular DYG Mineral Makeup line.   She was a recipient of the San Diego Business Journal’s “Women Who Mean Business” award and co-authored the popular You Glow Girl! Series. In addition, she founded You Glow Girl, a teenage skin care company, and authored Fun in the Sun Safely.

Blah, Blah, Blah ADORRRRRRRRE her and her sense of self and selfless sense, Dianne IS the urban legend in the uber fab flesh… She has FILLER in the soles of her feet!  Watch out Dr Scholl’s Dianne is taking no prisoners and walking on air!

I admit it, I did not know what to expect… Would I be talking to a shrewd businesswoman?  A Socialite who was “lite” on brain cells? Or just an unbelievably gorgeous woman who had stumbled into something and was holding on to her 15 minutes of fame?

So let me be VERY clear!  Sharp as a tack, delightful, honest and sincere as the day is long – I was talking to Wonder Woman! But beg as I might, I did not get a ride in her invisible plane or get to play in her high heeled boots- YET!

At a time when the rule of thumb seems to be “no good news is no news at all”, Dianne is living proof that all of us can do anything and have a lot more we still need to do.

Am I the only one who has noticed how dynamic she is?  Nope…Take a look:

http://www.dianneyork-goldman.com/awards.htm

Now about that Reality Show:

Oxygen pulls back the curtain on the tantalizing world of medi-spas with the reality workplace dramedy series; “Addicted to Beauty.”

“Addicted to Beauty” follows the outrageous staff at Changes Plastic Surgery and Spa, located in Southern California. Dianne York-Goldman, socialite and marketing expert, has brought her over-the-top employees from her previous spa to help with this new venture with well-known plastic surgeon Dr. Gilbert Lee. The staff includes: Gary, the flamboyant and outspoken receptionist; Ronnie, the eccentric concierge; Natasha, Dianne’s levelheaded assistant and Shannyn, the whip cracking spa manager. However, this group may be no match for Melanie (aka, “Mel”), Dr. Lee’s no nonsense office manager who is not afraid of giving out tough love…

As our discussion came to an end I must admit I wanted to keep talking.  Not only was I getting inside information on what to do and what NOT to do regarding my pin cushion (I mean face), but I felt I was talking to a woman of substance, a kindred -quirky spirit and someone who I would definitely like to speak with  further…

Dianne, keep on writing, keep on creating, keep on keeping us beautiful and most of all –  Keep us laughing!

I adore you!

August 31, 2009

I just spent a great weekend at a hip W hotel and I have the sunburn and heartburn to prove it.   Met a fragrance guru (name to follow) and a sexy shoe mogul (A Choo!) sorry I think I might have caught a cold!

I just wanted to touch base and let you know that I have certainly not abandoned the buzz.  In fact, some very cool things are on the horizon.  But before we can move on a few loose ends

A little added treat from Scott!

Lonely Girl is the new single from OceanLab (Above & Beyond and Justine Suissa). The single coincides with the release of OceanLab ‘Sirens Of The Sea REMIXED’, which reached #1 in iTunes dance album chart in the US. The video for Lonely Girl was shot in LA and features model Jacqueline Lord.

Lonely Girl Video

This is damn HOTTTTTT!

Lately, I have been watching my “carb” intake instead of just “in-taking” carbs.  Ya’ now while I sometimes feel they are the Anti Christ, them carbohydrates – A lack there of sure does wreak havoc with a guys mood!  Me moody?  I know the notion sounds impossible to comprehend.   So when I got the opportunity to connect with my “uber” cool new TDCLHBFF or (Tree Dwelling Car Loving Hottie Best Friend For Ever) Scott Elrod I was concerned I would come off as a raging, nasty Blogger and heaven help us we have far too many of those already! Anywayyyyy

Elrod_SK7Z9074

The phone rang and the voice on the other end was a down to earth, wickedly funny guy who just happens to have been in one of my all time favorite shows Men In Trees ­starring Anne Heche.   As her “on again/off again” boyfriend “Cash” we certainly saw a lot of Scott, as he was strategically nearly naked in most of his scenes.   When I asked him why he appeared in a jockstrap so often he reminded me… “It was not quite a jockstrap as it was sorta’ missing the strap!”   Ah such a pity huh ladies?

So what makes Scott tick and what has he been up to?  An army brat, he was born in Germany…  His father, an F-16 pilot inspired in Scott a need for speed and a love for fast machines both flying and terrestrial… Not to mention while other dads were lovingly showing up for Career Day at school – Ya’ gotta’ admit Scott was scoring points with “Hi this is my father the fighter pilot!”

So a recap thus far-   Friendly, funny, cool dad and sexy as hell.   I could really learn to hate this guy except he is so damn nice!

With some really edgy, independent films on the horizon like Death and Cremation, Knife Point, and Hard Breakers- Scott is showing his acting chops and receiving rave reviews.   Not to mention The Baster with some “unknown” Jennifer Aniston…Has anybody heard of her?????

As is fast becoming an “On Demand” from readers here – Scott  was also willing to give up his quest for world peace long enough to offer me his “Wish List”

  1. A helicopter – specifically an Astar
  2. P-51 Mustang (to give to dad)
  3. A certain unnamed project to be funded

Sounds like a plan to me…

Of course how could I end an interview without a question that takes my irreverent style and gives it some creditability?   The choice was simple.  “Boxers or briefs?”   And to that a resounding “Oh definitely boxer briefs” – My kinda’ guy!   Well not in the biblical sense of course.

Thanks Scott and feel free to gimme’ a ride in that helicopter sometime soon.

While I freely admit my ego is intact as I can look in the mirror and I am only marginally horrified by the guy looking back.  If you want to feel really “not young” REALLY fast…Watch, attend, read about – hell even discuss The Teen Choice Awards.   I have nothing against them, nothing against the Tweens, Teens and all points in between (kind of faboo in the name of word-play) but even if I took Botox intravenously, I would still have to face fact – I am not 17 any more.  So as I tweeted and sent off semi- random text on my oh – so fab u licious I Phone (that I had to sell my own mother to the gypsies and pay an early upgrade fee to have the honor of owning) I realized while I would not want to be 17 again… Cassidy Lehrman, my new HHANTLBFF or (Hip Happening and Now Technology Loving Best Friend Forever) of the HBO explosion Entourage – (Ari Gold’s (Jeremy Piven’s) daughter) – reminds me that 17 is pretty cool – And if she is any indication of what the new generation of “Tinsel Town” will be? Ladies and Gentleman she has set the bar mighty high as both an actress and all around human being.

It was clear from the moment we spoke that Cassidy’s success was no happy accident as she has her head squarely set on her petite shoulders and her sites set on longevity rather than “flash in the pan success”.

cassidy_lehrman_20090516

Here “bio” reads like one of her role on the Gilmore Girls

  1. Daughter to Hippee Parents
  2. Moved 17 times
  3. Studies Krav Maga (A form of Self Defense with Israeli roots)

And while she is a lovely young lady – She has already taken on the role of Journalist, Radio Host and Princess of the Universe (ok I added that one to make it a clean triplet) long before she would even consider being Prom Queen.  So when she decided at age 12 she wanted to be an Actress, it made sense to move the family to Los Angeles for Pilot Season as success was something Cassidy had taken on as both an art and science.

As the SELF proclaimed guru of all things Pop Culture, it is both my pleasure and my duty to know the 411 on my new BFF soooo I took great delight in sharing with her that her popularity rating according to the “powers that be” at IMBD was off the charts this week.  “Really?” was what I heard from the other end of the phone? Yuppers! 32% increase Bravo?  And what did she attest this to? And I quote… “hmmmm, dunno but really?”

I have to say with more than a single decade separating us in age I truly felt a connection to this spit fire and new HHANTLBFF (please refer to the above if you have forgotten).   When I asked her about her lack of ANY negative “buzz” her response was, well quite logical…”It’s just as easy to stay out of trouble as it is to get into to it…”   Ok I think we have found our next President.

So what is it like to be one of the hottest shows EVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVER?  Cassidy is not one to hold back… “Every time they call a wrap – I want to say – NOOOOO let’s keep going.  It is an amazing cast and crew a terrific script and I love every minute of it!”

With just a few more minutes together and a few more points to ponder we came to the “Wish List” – That moment when I double dog dare my “buddies” to step away from World Peace and a cure for all that plagues us and just be deliciously “selfish” (just for a moment RELAX!)

So Ms. Cassidy was more than willing to play along… What would she like?

  1. A Hover Craft (if ya’ don’t know look it up)
  2. I Phone 3-Gs (Yes! Slam Dunk)
  3. Smart Paper (Ok I did not know about this so I will help ya out – http://thecabal.org/gurps/rareitems/smart.html

And as for romance

  1. Single
  2. Looking
  3. Did I say looking?

Any young man would be very lucky and if I hear he is not treating her right…He will have to deal ME!

P.S.  Extra points to the guy who can drive a Hover Craft and knows a few things about  Smart Paper!
