BREAKING NEWS: Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill, Mary Carey at Sampan, Robert DeNiro, Bobby Flay, Nicole Miller Plus a Few Goodbyes, Fido Friday

Welcome to another edition of PhillyGossip, your weekly catch up on what’s happening with people in our area. Nicki Minaj has been found.

 The last we saw of her she was performing a concert in LA earlier this month with Fetty Wap and friends. Then we all heard the break up stories, and I know you’re reading me as every where I went people would ask me are they really broken up. I haven’t seen you report on Nicki and Meek lately, so what’s happening with them. I’ll tell you what I told youse then, but now we have proof.


You’ll recall I wrote that they did have a beef, something about Nicki
giving up everything and playing house with Meek as he does his 90 day
stint as ordered by the court.  I wrote that she wasn’t playing hard to
get, she was just rehearsing her tour in LA. She’s going to Africa in a
few weeks to do some shows. She even tweeted to her followers, don’t
believe what you read or hear.

Don’t fret they’re together again. She flew into Philly on Wednesday, and did put on a little show for her snap chat followers. No word on where Meek is calling home, but rumor has it it’s on the waterfront in one of my favorite condos.

 Sad to hear my friends Mary Carey and Mario Monge are getting a divorce
after 6 years. This shot was taken in 2011, shortly after they got
married. He’s an electrician and worked on her house. They fell in love
and the rest is history. I had gotten together with them 2 additional
times when her show came through town. One time we went to Sampan and she
treated me to dinner. She pulled out a wad of dollar bills and paid the
$150 check with them. SO funny.

Burger King: Bobby Flay had dinner at Vetri’s Pizza with Marc Vetri on Wednesday night.

And then they posed with admirers, grandpop even cracked a little smile

Last week Robert Deniro was in town to cut the ribbon on the new Glen Mills Fine Wine & Good Spirits Collection Store. My question is does that whole title fit on one sign?

 Speaking of wine, everyone is still talking about Craig Laban‘s review of Tredici Enoteca, but he liked the wine. I’ve been there twice, I like the food. I don’t drink. Looks like Chef Perrier enjoyed everything in front of him, and probably had a good cigar afterwards.

I bet I know who has a good cigar – Congrats Christopher Wolfington for being the 20th Anniversary winner of the Holt’s Cigar  humidor.. We shot him last weekend at the Dancing With Our Future Stars event. 

Where I also saw AJ Feeley, perform here with wife Heather Mitts, who is 9 months pregnant with their 2nd child. She looks fantastic. They’re with Kellie Gaglioti co owner of Joseph Anthony

Hey anyone missing a hot tub?
