Adorable Babies, The Goldberg’s & Kristen Rodgers is coming to Town,

Good Sunday Morning. Get out today and enjoy it, looks like we’re in for a week of clouds. Babies and more babies were born this week after that cold, ok not so cold, but cozy winter we just had. My dad, and OBGYN, always told me that August, September and October were the busiest months for babies being born and now with FB birthday notices I can tell he was right.

Babies

OK get out today and enjoy it, it’s going to be a beaut’ as dad would always say.

 Eagles long-snapper Jon Dorenbos married longtime girlfriend Annelise Dale on the beaches of Mexico June 17. The duo told me last year they met in Las Vegas in 2015, and have been inseparable ever since.  Dorenbos, who is set to enter a record breaking 12th season as the Eagles long-snapper.  Congrats you two. This is an epic shot I pulled off Jon’s instagram.

Yesterday Fox 29’s Dave Kinchen ran into the Dog Bounty Hunter outside the Ritz Hotel on Broad Street. “Dog the Bounty Hunter” and wife, Beth Chapman, are in town as they’re appearing in Trenton today for a Community Town Hall Meeting on Bail Reform in New Jersey. Pastor Dorion Morgan, who is hosting the Chapmans at his church on Sunday, the Restoration Station Christian Fellowship Church, is a criminal defense attorney who has seen this unconstitutional side of the bail reform. (source)
jonBefore heading to the Wells Fargo Center to perform in the NKOB, Boyz II Men, and Paula Abdul concert, Donnie Wahlberg headed to the Piazza and his family’s namesake eatery Wahlburger’s. He met contest winners from IHeartMedia and filmed a segment for his families reality tv show on A&E.

His band mate Danny Wood, worked out at Planet Fitness in South Philly yesterday afternoon. Seems it was back, biceps and abs day according to his twitter.

Former Miss Philadelphia Ryann Richardson, moved to DC a few years back. She participated in the Miss DC USA 2017 pageant and came in 2nd. When Miss DC 2017 was chosen as Miss USA earlier this year, Ryann became Miss DC USA 2017. Next Saturday she will be officially crowned. Interestingly enough, this same scenario happened last year with Miss DC 2016 being picked as Miss USA 2016. Jon
Another winner is Ashley Taylor, who owns DFTI Boutique on Chestnut Street. She won Best Women’s Boutique 2017. Congrats are also in order for Kory Aversa, who had 12 clients who won in their best of categories. Jon
Philly Style Magazine was recently bought by Modern Luxury. Which is a privately held company represented many luxury brand magazines. Expect more of the best of the beautiful, as well as photos by me. Jon
This month I have a few columns in Philly Style including this great shot that Kevin Hart gave me at the Arts + Business Council Awards last month.  Don’t forget Kevin Hart Day is coming in in Philly on July 6 and the actor/comedian will be back in town. Stay with Philly Chit Chat for updates. Jon
Also in the issue is my new bff in my head, Kristen Alderson. You may recall her from her years on One Life To Live as Starr Manning. I was a serious fan boy. I was so right, she is the sweetest person, kind and generous as is her brother Eddie and mom Kathy. So glad to get to know them. 6-22-2017 10-02-28 AM (Custom)

Talk about sweet and kind, Congrats to matchmaker Steve Ward and Madison Pard on their upcoming nuptials. 6-24-2017 10-23-34 PM (Custom)

Congrats to Fox 29’s Alissa Frick and Tony Frick, Manna Board President on their upcoming production. So adorable.6-24-2017 10-44-12 PM (Custom)
Yesterday I saw the most beautiful bride on the Art Museum Steps, but couldn’t grab a shot from my speeding car. So I looked up photos of who was on the steps yesterday and found this interesting story of a girl biking across the country for charity.
I’m just a simple gal on two wheels with restless legs.   My name is Marisol Gomez.  Some call me an extremist, but I just like to push my limits.   Having played competitive sports most of this life, my aspirations continue to flourish.  For the last five years, I have thought about riding a bicycle cross-country.  When a friend told me he and his wife had bicycled from Long Beach, CA, to Long Beach, NY, it really got my gears turning.”

Then there was this cute sketch of the city from the steps, including the scaffalding around City Hall. It’s been 8 weeks, I hope it’s done by July 4. I should write someone and find out.6-10-2017 12-57-38 PM (Custom)

Hey Jillian Mele , Fox and Friends, was back in town to get her locks done by Salon Vanity’s  Edmondo Blando. He does all the anchor babes, many of them coming back in town just to get their locks done by him like former Fox 29 babe Kacie McDonnell

Jon

So long Penne restaurant and wine bar. You had a good run. Look how adorable Roberta Adamo is with her new ‘do. Wishing her a happy retirement.
We had so much fun in the early days.

Jon
Speaking of never really gone legendary Chef Georges Perrier, is now back in the kitchen as Master in Residence at Walnut Hill College. He’s teaching/mentoring the
chefs of tomorrow. That’s terrific.
OK see you tomorrow, or on instagram today.

Delilah’s 9th Annual Diamond G-String Award Was more Like Disney On Ice this Year

Last Night I went to Delilah’s 9th Annual Diamond G-String Award. Delilah’s would be the first to tell you they are a gentleman’s club with standards. There’s an air of old time cinematic Las Vegas excitement in the air when you walk through the big black doors into the lobby. The crowd is a little more dapper than say the Gold Club or Cheerleaders. I didn’t have to mark this year’s entry as NSFW cause like Madonna at Live Aid in 1985, they weren’t taking much off tonight, it was about the talent.
Hosted by owners Jenn Shamy-Exley, Bryan Exley, Brian Taylor and Christie (Thanks for allowing me to shoot the event.)The “celebrity” judges were not revealed until the night of the event and consisted of many of Philly’s out and about PR peeps (who have all been making upwardly moves this year) and some of the front end managers of Philly’s finest happening spots. Above Aly Green, Silencia PR. Aly’s been flying cross country these past few weeks arranging hot happening sports dinners for clients this past year as well as growing her business. Drew “the Mayor” Carbello, is one of two mangers at Del Frisco’s making sure that all your needs are being met. It’s great to see his talent get recognize.
Tom Conte, (Judge) Dana Spain and John Kelly. The Delilah’s event brings out a lot of Philadelphia sophisticates who enjoy a little something on the wild side. It’s all done in fun and style. Men usually are the majority on most nights, but on these entertainment nights women are right up there, coming with friends, partners, husbands who are all there to be entertained for the evening.
Dana owes her sexy physique to this guy who works her hard in the gym
Out of nowhere and now everywhere Jimmy Contreras, PhillyStreetStyle, Drew, and guests
Will Welch and arm candy Lindsay Furman (Judge). Lindsay just signed with two modeling agencies and is back where she belongs in front of the camera and looking good.
Ashley, Eric Conte and Carol Drumsta, Brown & Forman
Choking the snake. Jimmy (Judge)
Brothers from another mother Bryan Exley and Drew Carballo
Chris DiGeorge and Ali Warren with a few friends.
Comedian and host of tonight’s event Bret Ernst with Delilah’s GM Alp Aktan
Gary Thorpe, G Lounge with Lane Kelly from Smith & Wollensky
Evan, Gianni, Marc and friend enjoyed the amazing athletic ability demostrated by all the athletes.
Bret Ernst was pretty hysterical.
The pre-opening act. Tonight was pretty tame compared to some of the nights I’ve been there, and by tame I mean entertaining almost in a Disneyfied Las Vegas way but not in a showgirl way as not a stitch of clothing came off just sheer hula hoop talent. Foreplay if you will.
Tre Rios, Voyeur, Waylon Nelson, G Lounge and Drew at the edge of the runway ready to judge.
The Card Girls in their Diane Furs bikini’s. It might have been hot outside, but it was even hotter inside. The winner of tonight’s event goes home with $10,000 and a new fur coat.
Football is on everyone’s mind lately
but the girls wanted to give the audience a little distraction while the details are being ironed out to settle the lock out.
Don’t try this at home: Earlier in rehearsals one poor lady got her thumb nearly severed when the digit got caught on a prop. I hear she is doing much better. I always want to hit the gym the next day after going to Delilah’s.
Next up it was urban cowboy chic.
The place was packed, and the audience was hooting and hollering as they enjoyed themselves. Spotted: Jason Thompson (Forward/Center for the Sacramento Kings NBA franchise) who’s in town for the Charlie Mac Charity weekend, plus “In Living Colors” Tommy Davidson, who declined a photo, but didn’t decline a lap dance from a bevy of babes. After their game there were also a few Union players as well as a few Eagles players, names withheld at their request.Lauren Beloff, GM Rogues Gallery near 21st & Market StreetsAngela, need I say more. I’m sweet for her.
Group #4 did the very Disneyfied Arabian Nights. It was very popular with the audience. Other judges: Shy Peled Blue Martini; Carmen DeMarco Cuba Libre; Marshall Young, Mad River.
This is one time you don’t mind a little meat around your belly so the sword doesn’t slip and give you a trim.
The men were on their feet with delight with this spectacular spectacular
The finale
I’m a bad judge of entertainment. I have never picked the winner correctly. I thought the first group would win as they did a lot of pole and acrobatic work, or maybe the 2nd group as they did a lot of choreography. The third group was a whole lotta different themes, without real continuity. But in the end
the winner was the Arabian nights. Congratulations!! I’m looking forward to the Entertainment of the Year Awards where the staging is more spectacular that Spiderman on Broadway, and reminds me of the good ole’ Gypsy Rose Lee movie.

PHILADELPHIA MAGAZINE BEST OF PARTY PHOTOS re: Being chosen best does not mean you are better than other people

Last night I attended an event that I was really looking forward to – The Philadelphia Magazine “Best of Issue” Party. I mean I have been reading that magazine since I was a kid and was aware of the “Best of Issue” when my classmate at my Cherry Hill elementary school, Sharon Saline’s mother was on the very first issue – Carol Saline. My mom got this magazine every month. It was the source that really excited me about Philadelphia while I was growing up in the sleepy suburb. It’s not my parents magazine anymore. I’ve been getting the magazine for the past couple years, and this year it has really step up to the plate. It’s contains a plethora of info, not only a bit of eye candy, but interesting stories, some of them like the Andy Reid story in January’s issue making news. For a monthly magazine in this day of the Internet instant news, that is amazing. Maybe it’s because they have a little competition in town, in fact a lot of competition that they have stepped up their game. Well we are better for it, because like the NY Times it is our old lady and I would like to see it around for a long time. Others feel the same respect for her I mean who else could draw such a diverse crowd to party together with the likes Dan Gross, Paul Rosen and half the KYW staff all in one room. The pink elephant in the room was that Alycia Lane wasn’t at the party. At one point Dan and friends were standing right next to Paul, and had I known who Paul was, that would have been the ironic shot of the night.I was greeted at the door by Melissa Bizzak and Kate Pierce. Who check the folks in, and gave the winners a little blue box, no not the color blue, that had an emblem with “Best of Philly” and the year on it.

“Classic Cake” won the best cake category and made this delicious cake, that I had a piece of, which probably wasn’t on my Nutrisystem plan.

Someone I admire a great deal, I don’t always agree with him, but he has moxie which is probably why he won “The Best Stunt” award, which I wish I had asked him about when he walked in. Mark Segal, Owner of the Philadelphia Gay News. Google him you will see the moxie.Larry Platt and David Lipson welcome the crowd, and tell them that there are photographers out there that will be shooting up a storm and they will all be in the Philly Magazine site tomorrow. OK well I knew I was in trouble, everyone wanted to be in the “Magazine” imagine the bragging rights, I am sure it’s just like when I get my photos in People or Rolling Stone magazine, well at least the first time. That was the first problem, the 2nd problem was some of these folks were down right rude when they found out I wasn’t with the Philly Magazine folks, and thirdly some never asked but treated me as if I was ok bluntly, and “G” rated word, dirt. I was thinking to myself, ok you won “Best of” something in Philly magazine, but that wasn’t a license to think you were better than me, or could basic turn on your heels and walk away from me while I was in mid-sentence. Andrea Planco, Salon Vanity, Nanor Arabatliana, Sun Myst with owner and winner Marilyn Kellmer
The bar was beautifully set up, the magazine covers were cleverly lined up so that a person waiting for their drink could review the years. I wish I had asked who the decorator was as the pudding was in the details.
When I got my mag in the mail, I checked out the winners and wasn’t surprised by the inclusion of Landmarks TOURS‘ Architecture Walking Tours of Philadelphia and the Region take place in more than 50 locations throughout Center City; an organization where I volunteered for about 6 years before my photography took hold. Please check them out you won’t be disappointed. www.philalandmarks.org ; Here Paula Spilner, PHd, Landmarks’ Director and Executive Director Frank Vagnone toast to their win. Actually they were both very modest and believe the win is for the whole organization and the success they have had. In fact Frank couldn’t stop gushing that Paula was a tireless advocate and proponent with the tour, and with that I would agree 100 %. You really must take the lecture that is given during the cold nights of winter. It’s something really worth wild to get you going during those dark days.

This is a real feel good story too, you have got to go to their website to read about the wonderful place they have created for kids, and for handicapped kids. It’s no wonder they won for “Best Place for a Child’s Playspace” http://www.kixandgiggles.com/

As I am a fashionista voyeur, Nicole was nice enough to indulge me and tell me who designed her fab dress by having her husband check the label of her dress (did I mention I am shooting fashion week NYC in less than 30 days, ok guess I do brag a bit) I thought the dress was Marc Jacob, but it is in fact Jessica McClintock. It’s HOT as Paris would say. He look dapper too, but can’t recall his suit, hmm begins with a B I think.

the catering was done by the Restaurant Association, which I never heard of, but they do the Kimmel, The Art Museum and a couple other places in town. The food was great, although I really didn’t eat too much, I like to concentrate on my photo taking. I did have some of these desserts after most of the guests left. They were too pretty and since most people took advantage of the open bar, I had a few tarts so they didn’t go to wasteSexy babes, don’t you think. Aggressive and willing to pose for the chit chat. Annemarie Alessi, Kathi Thomas, Lauren Harris, Deanna Frost – “Style of Man” Best Business Concept – OK who wouldn’t want to go there and pick up a little style

Style of Man

Donna O’Brien “Beautiful Blooms” Its hard to see, but Donna has three daisies magically affixed to her shoulder. There’s no doubt she is making a fashion statement, and one I haven’t seen in Philadelphia. SO stop on by to Beautiful Blooms, pick up a few and maybe she’ll tell you how she did it. Love her taffeta orange dress, I guess she got the memo that that would be the party colors this year.
So you need to pick up some tax free diamonds, Philly Mag thinks AR Morris Jewelers is the place to go. www.armorrisjewelers.com Here’s Inga Khaitman and Wendy Morris enjoying the fruits of their labor. Gossip legend Dan Gross, who I think btw is doing his job and his numbers show it. Last night I had a chance to talk to a few of his subjects, and although they may despise him, they all agree that it’s his job, people want to read that trash and they just try and avoid him or anyone associated with him. Its nice they don’t avoid me, even though my stuff has appeared in his column. I self edit. When someone says “Off the Record” to me, well it’s off the record.

With Dan is PFF media person Matthew Ray and Troy Cassell


Jim Donovan and Stephanie Stahl. It’s true I did try and angle a shot of these folks, maybe for the blog, maybe for the Inquirer where some of my photos are published, maybe for my national photo agency because you never know when they might allegedly hit a cop. I don’t care what the hipsters say people in Philly do want to read about the people they see on TV, why not, we see them everyday, they convey the news to us, and we’re a fascinated bunch. I remember growing up and going to get an autograph picture of Dave Roberts, I was a huge fan of weather, still am. I mean who thought that up, it was genius and you know there was a line too. It’s some of these same people that make fun of our adulation of news people that will be the first in line to get Chase Utley’s or Pat Burrell’s autographs. How many of them will be at the Soul Parade today just to get a glimpse of Jon Bon Jovi, or how many wish they were there to catch Alyssa Milano at the Phillies game or Kate Moss at Johnny Brenda’s or anyone at playing there. Pat Ciarrochi and Mary Stoker Smith. I wish I had seen Edie Huggins in person.
Looking as fabulous as ever, Jennifer the Kinky Quizzo queen holding court every Tuesday at @ Valanni in Center City at 11pm, with her is big fan Natemoving right to burlesque Peekaboo Revue http://www.peekaboorevue.com/ “Best of Philly Winner” Lulu Lollipop and Ginger Leigh (I wonder if Dita Von Teese has stop by)

The night did get better as I came upon people I have gotten to know over the past year and photographed, or one of the 500 people that read me each day. Here is the winner for “Best Local Designer” Rachel Breeden (or what I like to say Mrs. Brad Maule – congratulations!!), Suzi Morris is in the middle doing performance art and on her right jewelery designer at the same store Typhaney Shanker. They are all from the Conspiracy Shop http://www.conspiracyshowroom.com/blog/

Upstairs I found WOGL’s Jamyra Perry and Mark Bagley. Mark works at Drexel and says that the 2008 applications are breaking records. The school is in the middle of building a dorm which should be ready in 2009. So in the meantime Parktown should expect more pizza deliveries at 2AM; I told Jamyra that Philadelphia Style Magazine reads my blog and picked out a photo of hers at an event I shot last week, to be in the September issue. So congrats to us both.

Henri David must be very good with faces; sure I have been going to his Ball for the past 15 years, but I have only photographed him professionally about 3 times. Super nice guy, came right over, said hi. It was a treat since I have long admire him, and his partner Paul Struck. We need to be facebook friends. These girls were so much fun. Peri Lei Boutique – Candice Caprice & Bruce Middleman with Kellie and Joseph Gagllotti – Joseph Anthony Retreat, Spa & Salon. These girls were the life of the party, no pretension and I have no doubt were living life relaxed and in love with guys that really seem to revel in the joy of them. On the right is the Philadelphia attorney Paul Rosen (his Firm does a lot of work I admire.) I had no idea who he was though, just a guy with a wife who was dressed beautifully that I thought would look nice on Philly Chit Chat – the Social Diary. But after his wife asked me “Do you know who he is”, and I said no. Well with that his wife said where’s the Philadelphia Magazine photographer? I was disappointed & embarrassed that they didn’t want to be on my site, because I really thought he and his wife looked so Philadelphia Classic with their tailored suits. (This is not his wife, it was a candid photo I took earlier in the night, because I vaguely remembered his face and was going to ask someone later who it was)
the XIX people. Jeffrey Miller and his gang were voted “Best Dessert in a restaurant” an honor they rightly deserve. r – l, Jeff, Molly & Jason. Joing them is Randi from Philly Magazine who does the Wedding Magazine, that I love reading every season.

Ju Ju Spa Best Holoistic Day Spa 2008 – Renee Bruskoff http://www.jujusalon.com/
Stephen Corlino and Dennis Fee (Tavern on Camac – Best Piano Bar). At one point during the night I remember talking to someone who’s had a familar last name. I went into a story about how I had gotten them a bit of PR that made the newspaper. No excitement, I look perplexed and the women said that she was no longer married to the last named person that I thought she was, and basically was not interested in anything more I had to say. I guess she realized she wasn’t going to be in Philly Magazine too. Well after taking the photo, as a “celebrity” friend of mine was with them, I went to collect the names and her friend gave me her maiden name. The friend spoke up and corrected her and said no, “Here I am using my married name ******”. I guess she was willing to give up years of bitterness for name recognition instead.
My sincere apologies to Deanna Durante and friends. I should have gotten all your names, I screwed up as I was being pulled in another direction.
Ahh Kelly Boyd looked fabulous. Just enough time for an air kiss and she was off to tuck the girls in to bed. Nice to see Ashley Kramer too

Mary Patel with her guy Michael D’Addesi producer/film maker; Mary has just joined Michael’s production company “Make U Famous” http://makeufamous.net/ I know of a couple projects they are working on and they are going to be great for Philadelphia.

Tigre Hill and Arthur Fennell. I had just caught Arthur the day before on TV, so I was honestly able to tell him I enjoyed his work over the years and as recent as the day before. He looks completely different on TV.
Anne Taulance, Philly Mag Wine Editor who has a shoot in about 5.5 hrs as it’s 3:30AM and I have a desk to report to at that time too. With her is her sister who gets to hang out with her older sister as Anne’s husband is travelling. Mary Kate promises to be a new reader, and I am going to hold her to it.
Hello readers of Philly Chit Chat – I love you, thanks, I feel validated. I guess getting my name out there to every corner of Pennsylvania is tough, I mean it is called Philly Chit Chat, not Philly Suburb Chit Chat, I would call them the bridge and tunnel crowd, but well its the same thing. OK back to my new best friends, Erin Elmore and Dr. Shareef Jandali, who knows a thing or two around a pretty face. Thinks Erin is as beautiful as the day she was born.
Ok more loving from these folks, I guess my night wasn’t all that bad. There really are only a few bad apples that spoil the stew, and they were toasted. OK maybe it’s just the mood I am in lately. These folks are some of my new favorites. Charles Peruto, Nina Tinari, Sabrina Tamburino (GPTMC), Steve Thorne, Mia Tinari and Carol Tamburino of Tuner Construction Company.Time to go to G Lounge with Matthew Ray, Matthew Vlahos and Troy Cassell

Gift bag time. Great towel, another magazine, key chain, small bottle booze, salt & pepper all and all a mixed bag this hump day.


Look for additional photos and the Photo Album to be added in a new entry on Saturday
