Happy Monday Morning. I’m sure you all have you’re Golden Globe glow on after last nights show. Hopefully that is the last we see of Ricky Gervais forever.

He was nearly as offensive as Mel Gibson has been, and several of his jokes were about Mel who was a presenter last night, which made no sense.

After the show I watched NBC10 News for the latest on Philly News, with my gals Denise Nakano and Brittney Shipp. OMG it was Brittney’s last night in Philly. ‘Sunday marked the final forecast for NBC10’s Brittney Shipp. After
spending three years with our First Alert Weather team,

Brittney is
moving on to start a new journey in San Francisco where she’ll work as
the main weekday night meteorologist for KRON-TV.’ (NBC10 Philadelphia) Saturday night NBC10 family said good bye to Brittney at a party at Del Frisco’s in Center City. All her favs were there Jacqueline London, Keith Jones, Anzio Williams and Rosemary Connors.

Speaking of Rosemary Connors, I spotted her, hubby Ben, LuAnn Cahn, and her hubby Phil at the new southern eaterly in Old City, Little Lion on Friday night. That’s Rosemary in the pink on the left. The place was packed. I was headed upstairs to attend QVC’s Erin Elmore’s birthday party. It was great. I’ll have photos of her party tomorrow.
 Christmas was such a blur as you know, and I forgot to post this awesome shot from former CBS3’s anchorwomen Alycia Lane and her family’s annual Christmas photo where they all dress in matching PJ’s including the dog. Well, Alycia told her friends last week that

baby makes four. A little brother will join big sister Averie, born in June 2014, in June 2016.
Congrats to Kenny Gamble (The Father of the Philadelphia Sound) and Dyana R. Williams (Legendary mistress of music –  “Soulful Sunday” on 100.3 and celebrity strategist) celebrated their grandchild, Luke Gamble‘s first birthday on Saturday. Luke is the child of their son Caliph Gamble and his lovely wife, Deana Gamble.

Congrats to Katelyn and Dan DeLiberty on the birth of their baby girl last week. The baby was due at Christmas time, but took her time in making her debut for mom and dad, who just celebrated their first anniversary  November 15, 2015.

The Santana family let their loved ones know they were expected a baby girl in may at their gender reveal party on Saturday. These parties are so much fun, and seem to be all the rage lately.
Google is developing a talk show like “The View'” and our very own Jen Groover, entrepreneur and life coach, just got cast to co-host. Can’t wait.

Congrats to my former photo editor at Philly.com Steph Aaronson who was laid off December 4 and has landed as photo editor at the Wall Street Journal.

Former Mob Wives star Alicia DiMichele was at the Philadelphia 76ers-Cleveland Cavaliers game and ran into Shady McCoy who was wearing a Cleveland Indians hat. I’m sure none of the Philly’s fans picked a fight with him.

Congrats to David Deven, General Director and President of Opera Philadelphia on his 10th anniversary at the helm. Up next for Opera Philadelphia is Cold Mountain which opens 2/5/16

Tim Quirino co-founded Geekadelphia & The Philly Geek Awards, lives in San Francisco and came across the production of the Full House Reunion, which is being shot for Netfliks. Set in San Francisco, it’s great to see the “Full House” house is being used for the new movie too. The Full House is party of the “Painted Ladies” in San Francisco, made famous by the 1990s TV show.
