You might have read in Molly Eichel’s column and AD Amorosi’s column about the reality show star who came to town and wreaked havoc. What happened was Avida Drescher and family wanted to come to Philly to experience July 4th in our fair City. She had her publicist call ahead of time to see what they could see, where they should go, eat etc.
I knew they were coming to town as a PR person tipped me off and I rearranged my weekend to get a shot of them at a high end spa on Sunday. Why did I do it, I love what I do, I love journaling it and I love sharing it. It’s what I do, but I was sad they weren’t going to the spa or making cheesesteaks with an owner.
I do understand they have kids and kids are driving the bus. After a day at Sesame Place on Saturday, the kids were pretty wiped out, and two events the Drescher’s canceled were booked for Sunday. They also canceled one on Thursday.
Sunday I got a call from The Dreschers to meet them
at the Monaco Hotel, where they stayed for the weekend. (I asked them to pose outside.)
I met Reid, Aviva, and children Hudson, and Sienna in the lobby where they were
playing with the items in the Kidz Corner. Friday they went to the historic sites, and then had dinner at
Pizzaria Stella near South Street (They told me the area reminded them of
Brooklyn.) Afterwards they went to the Franklin Fountain in Old City. Saturday
they went to Sesame Place. That evening Aviva made an appearance an appearance at
ICandy to the delight of her gay fans who posted lots of pixs on Instagram (that appearance happened when Matt ran into someone at Treemont who took him on a tour of Philly Gay Bars and he was able to book an appearance there. Pretty darn lucrative.) Sunday it was breakfast at Red Owl
Tavern at Hotel Monaco. Aviva told me she enjoyed doing the Real Housewives
series, even with all its drama because it’s allowed her a greater reach in
helping others through her philanthropic work as the
National Spokesperson for One Step Ahead and other organizations helping

I shot Nicki Minaj leaving the Ritz-Hotel. She was make-up free, friendly and sexy
The shots appeared in PhillyMag, Molly Eichel’s Philly Gossip, The UK Daily Mail and several other outlets.
Ran all the way from the Ritz to the Four Season and nearly beat Nicki Minaj who drove.

they went all out and brought serious seating to watch the concert on the TV,
then peek out from the tent to watch the fireworks which are shot off across
