PhillyGossip: The Herremans to be Parents, Jen Carroll, Caitlyn Jenner, Bing Ang, Baby News, Susie Celek and Vince Vaughn,

Happy surprise snow Philly, well surprise if you only checked the weather before 3PM yesterday. I hope it wasn’t too messy out for you. Glad I didn’t go to Wing Bowl. I usually go, but I shot the Bacon Brothers fundraiser concert last night for The Rail Yard (see the photos at 5PM – Google Philly Mag The Scene and the column should come up.), anyway, last year I had a gig the night before the Wing Bowl and I pulled an all nighter to shoot the event. I just didn’t want to do that this year. Here’s what’s happening with our friends, and the bold names of Philly.

Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Todd Herremans. I love how Elizabeth Herremans notified her friends.

 OK Jen Carroll doesn’t live in Philly anymore, but she’ll always be from Philly. Recently I mentioned she got engaged to her beau Billy Riddle, and she’s prepping to open Requin DC; Requin is a French Mediterranean restaurant by chef Jennifer Carroll in partnership with chef and restaurateur Mike Isabella. Here’s a behind the scenses shot of Jen being photographed for the June issue of Food and Wine.

 It was just announced that Buzz Bissinger is going to co-author a book about Caitlyn Jenner. Then it was announced last week Caitlyn Jenner will visit the University of Pennsylvania later this month for a conversation with author and Penn alumnus Buzz Bissinger next week. It’s sold out that day. Caitlyn posted this shot earlier this week, you’ll recognize that living room as being at her Malibu home

 Congrats to Josh Kruger. It’s been a joy to watch his career blossom over the past few years.
 Just terrible news about Big Ang, from Mob Wives. After recovering from throat cancer last spring, where she noted how surprised it didn’t kill her as she had been a heavy smoker; the other shoe dropped and she’s now been diagnosed with Stage Four Lung and Brain Cancer. Prayers go up.
Don’t call her a celebrity party crasher, but local Realtor Melissa Leonard sure has a knack for getting her photos taken with them whether it’s in Philly, at Sundance or at the Super Bowl. Last night Melissa enjoyed Ron “Jaws” Jaworski’s cigar party at super bowl weekend. Vince Vaughn , Coach Ditka, Ron Jaworski , Leigh Steinberg, Donovan McNabb. I wish she would take me as her photographer.



 First time he’s addressed this publicly

 I asked Susie where she got this hot shirt, she said it was created just for her. It’s pretty cool. Who wants one?
 Happy Heart Month
The Magnatta family at Nicole Miller shopping event last night where the funds went to the American Heart Foundation. The Red Heart Gala is Saturday night at the Marriott.

 Anne Lago’s held a shopping night out for Realm jewelery at the Ritz Residences with a percentage going to support The Wistar Institute.

 Thank you to everyone who came out to support The Wistar Ambassadors tonight! A lot of new Realm Empresses were born! – Lynsie Solomon (2nd from right) I see everyone got the memo to wear black.
 Macy’s Center City celebrated Black History Month with Grammy award winner Monica and actress Jurnee Smollett-Bell here with DJ Arun.
Happy Chinese New Year. Looks like this is going to go off just as the Super Bowl ends. The action starts at 10:30PM Sunday night at 10th and Race. I’ve gone before, it’s fun. Watch out for those fireworks.
