Philadelphia

Rosie Perez, Whoppi Goldberg and Liev Schrieber dine, Ryan Howard’s A Dad, Buddy Valastro The Cake Boss Opens

Celebrities and Philebrities were out and about this past weekend in Philly, as well as Philly folks running into celebrities elsewhere.

 Happy Birthday Patty Jackson. 
Oh how it would have been great to celebrate with Patty again this year, but I headed over to former radio hostess’ Shamara  #HiFriend’s bday party. It was bitter sweet too as she, Laiya St Clair, Quincy Harris and a few of their co-workers were let go when Hot 107.7 changed formats. I wanted to be there for support and give her the love she deserves. It was a great party with lots of folks out celebrating. I’ll have a blog entry at another time to show you all the fun. I did have a photo in the Phila Daily News yesterday, with surprise guest boxer Danny Garcia, along with DJ Casper, Kim Derstine, owner of “Fire and Ice” ,  and John Armstrong at Shamara’s birthday party held Friday
night at Fire and Ice in Old City.

#Fox29Weekend’s  Lauren Johnson stops by Devon with her mom and grandmom last week.

 Buddy Valastro The Cake Boss opens Carlo’s Bakery in Marlton, NJ.
 Congrats to the Andrew Jackson School for being the beneficiary of the largess of The Olitsky Foundation to the tune of Five Hundred Thousand Dollars.
 Who knew this would be a gigantic story, Adam Joseph takes a leave from 6ABC to take care of his and partner Karl’s son Jacob for 3 months. Paternity Leave, that 6ABC is progressive.

 Frankie and Pete caught up with the Landers sisters of Dallas fame, at a Bar Mitzvah in NYC.
It’s Raining Men Martha Wash was in town over the weekend at the Hyatt Penns Landing, where the ever thinning Geno Vento ran into her and snapped this photo. 

 Philadelphia Eagles Player Jon Dorenbos got his teammates to do the happy face stamp to support adoptions. (certainly much warmer than the ice buck challenged.)

OK he’s gonna be a dad this week. I had no idea Krystal was expecting, then I ran into a few people at parties this week who told me they are over the moon. This shot was taken at the Rollin event in May, and Krystal was nearly 3 months along here. They’re one of my favorite couples. Congratulations!!
This is their new house in Florida, near Clearwater. It’s on the Gulf Coast.
 Saturday night the Sporting Club held their sculpting body event. I was so crazy covering 3 other events I didn’t make it, but everyone looked great  and had a good time.
 Love this shot of Sheinelle Jones with one of the twins. She’s getting much needed family time with her new gig at The Today Show on the Weekend. Let’s hope she stays out of Tamron Hall’s way, I hear that girl is created a wicked mess of bodies in her wake as she climbs her way to the top.
 Down the shore, Savor Borgata was going on. Lots of good chefs whipping up delicious foods. My favorite chef Michael Schulson and Chef Kevin Yanga (Izakaya), were on hand. I’ll be down next week for dinner as Kory and I are going on one of our notable jaunts to AC.

The Sergey Kovalev v Bernard Hopkins fight attracted a lot of star power to Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, NJ on Saturday night, including Rosie Perez and Whoppi Goldberg as well as Liev Schrieber. I heard the three of them had dinner Saturday night at the Continental at the former Caesar’s Pier and now owned by Bart Blatstein. 
Last week I read this cool tidbit about Lieve Schrieber and his kids.
Last night Bernard Hopkins was back training in the gym.
