Dancing With The Stars: I'll Miss These Guys

I had so much fun covering Dancing With The Stars over the past 3 years. Its been a blast. Here was the last video from from the finale party.

Well Well DWTS Season 14 Cast Revealed

Interesting choices and some smoke and mirrors. A few weeks ago it was rumored that Courtney Cox and Cheryl Cole were going to be on the show. That seemed odd for several reasons one Cox still has a show currently on ABC and Cheryl Cole used to date Derek Hough and was axed from the X Factor. So here is the released cast list for Dancing With The Stars Season 14:
Jack Wagner & Ann Trebunskaya
Melissa Gilbert & Maksim Chmerkovskiy
Donald Driver & Peta Murgatroyd
William Levy & Cheryl Burke
Sherri Shepherd & Val Chemerkovskiy
Jaleel White & Kym Johnson
Katherine Jenkins & Mark Ballas
Gavin DeGraw & Karina Smirnoff
Martina Navratilova & Tony Dovolani
Roshon Fegan & Chelsie Hightower
Maria Menounos & Derek Hough
Gladys Knight & Tristan MacManus
Great to see Chelsie Hightower back. I don't know if I will be covering Dancing With The Stars this season due to Chris Doherty of INF photo not paying me for two months and the corruption of the photo agencies. Everyone knows how much I love DWTS however I can no longer be abused by working for agencies that don't pay for my work that gets published. Here is Dancing With The Stars Producer Conrad Green during the after party for DWTS last season.

Staying Sober with Lynelle

Like many people I'm struggling with aniexty over money issues (since I haven't been paid by a photo agency INF in two months). Many of us are under severe stress so I asked my friend Lynnelle her thoughts on staying sober while feeling depressed.

2012 Oscar:s Behind The Curtain

Rumors abound that the name KODAK or the logo will not be used during the broadcast of the 2012 Academy Awards due to the new landlord and Kodak's bankruptcy. There are also rumors that the Academy Awards might be looking for a new home at the Nokia Center in Downtown Los Angeles where everything seems to be moving. But there is something to be said about keeping the Oscars in Hollywood and on the famous boulevard. Here is a quick look at some pictures I took yesterday while the preparations for the Oscars is underway for Sunday's extravaganza.

Director John Landis Visits the Los Angeles Italia Film Festival

Director of such classics as The Blues Brothers, Animal House and Michael Jackson's Thriller, John Landis was greeted warmly at the opening of The Los Angeles Italia Film Festival at the Grauman's Chinese Theatre.
Landis' career is not without controversy. In 1982 two children and one adult actor were killed during the filming of The Twilight Zone (The Movie) during a dangerous helicopter scene that went horribly out of control under John Landis' direction.

Exclusive FAR EAST MOVEMENT Hit Hollywood

Far East Movement turned up on Hollywood Boulevard today. I had a chance to talk with them about Whitney Houston, sobriety and shopping...

The Night Before Whitney Houston Died

I've been sadden by the news of the Icon Whitney Houston passing. I was so excited about her being seen out and about on pre-Grammy red carpet parties. I thought she looked good inside the clubs and she seemed to be having a good time. Anyway, my prayers go out to her family and loved ones especially Bobbi Kristina who has been to the hospital after the death of her mother.
Friday night, I was exhausted after a long day but I had made plans to meet up with my friend Lynnelle to continue our discussions. I've mentioned her numerous times because I felt a long time ago that her story was something that could help people battling addiction and also to educate those who are dealing with someone with addictions. Lynnelle has been sober for 15 years. She used to do crack cocaine. Her favorite artist is Whitney Houston. So late on Friday night, we got together and had a long discussion about sobriety and battling addiction. This was an honest discussion and maybe it will help others. I hope so. It was as if we had a little "meeting" ourselves and shared it with the world. This video is dedicated to anyone battling triggers of addiction. Eventually I will combine the video put for now it is in 3 segments.

Wisdom for Women with Lynnelle

Exclusive The Real Truth About the Catwoman Pepper Sprays Ozzy/Capt.Jack Story

Working on Hollywood boulevard is like working in a grave yard. A grave yard of fallen stars who once sparkled and new stars who will fade. It is the boulevard of broken dreams and crazy aspirations. For others it is the boulevard of desperation. It is so sad when you have good intentions and they mean nothing. For many who entertain on Hollywood Boulevard, (screenwriters, actors/actresses, a longshoreman, a photographer and a designer) they are decent folks entertaining locals & tourists. For others, they run the gamut for why they are out there. Herein lies the problem, desperation, economic woes, depression, addictions to medication, addictions to alcohol and mental illness makes people do things that are beneath them. Anyone who spends time on Hollywood Boulevard or for that matter any major American street will see some wild things. Homeless mentally ill people walking back and forth. And others who scream at anyone who will hear them.
I was told that the characters/performers on Hollywood Boulevard are left to their own devices since the Court ruling came down that we had the right to be there. It appears the LAPD has a hands off policy if a character has trouble on the boulevard. I hope that statement is not true. But it does appear that if a tourist or a “regular citizen” makes a complaint against a character, the Police will show up but if a character makes a complaint about another character or tourist, if the police show up, they will arrive very late or not at all and if they do they will dissuade filing a police report. I guess we are consider like gang members. If we kill ourselves so be it and less work for the city.
So that leaves the people who have good intentions and a sense of fairness and respect for civil rights with a dilemma. What to do if someone is repeatedly harassing you or is intoxicated?
If you keep your mouth shut and the person or persons (is/are) repeatedly abusing you “who you gonna call? - Ghostbusters?” No! You are left with your own devices. Personally, I’m tired of being harassed or abused. And I mentioned in my twitter two weeks ago about an incident that happened with one of the persons involved in the infamous “pepper spray incident”. That person was under the influence of something and was following me around. I moved away several times and the person kept following. Another character step in between us and told the other person to go away. I chose not to use violence by moving away. If I seriously felt threaten I would have used another alternative. The interesting thing is the harassing person who looks more like Ozzy Osbourne than Capt. Jack Sparrow didn’t remember it the next day. Fast forward to last week the “pirate/OzzyOsbourne look a like” harassed several characters and eventually was pepper sprayed by one of the many Catwomen. The Catwoman who did the spraying has a Fran Drescher type of voice and wears all black. In case you aren’t aware, there are several of the same types of characters on the boulevard at the same time.
The regular media and the blogosphere ran with the story. One of the reasons the story is so popular is because the new BATMAN movie DARK KNIGHT RISES with Catwoman played by Anne Hathaway is coming out this summer. Smart PR people will use any story that can raise the meter of the public's interest in their project. Others love any attempt to get rid of all the characters and negative publicity is a great way to start. While others just thought of it as a interesting story regarding Ozzy. Some reports took the time to interview the Catwoman involved while others put up mock ups of the Halle Berry’s Catwoman spraying Johnny Depp’s Captain Jack in an attempt to be humorous. I like humor but when people think you are guilty of a crime or come up to you and assume you are the one who was involved in a street brawl, it is not funny. There are some really great Capt Jacks on the boulevard and they didn’t deserve to be accused of being the guilty party. And without being obnoxious, there is an awesome Michelle Pfieffer type Catwoman and a KATwoman on the boulevard. So in order to get the facts straight, here are the males involved in the pepper spray incident that weren’t interviewed. FYI, the Alien character was dressed as Santa Claus and was arrested before and the Ozzy Osbourne look alike Pirate has harassed several characters on multiple days.

Since the characters that are cool are unprotected, we must protect ourselves.
