There was no hair pulling but still an exciting night with former “The Housewives of New Jersey” star Danielle Staub at Boxers NYC in the city.  She was there to support Strengthen Our Sisters, a grassroots, community based, nonprofit, 155 bed shelter program serving homeless and battered women and children.  You can find out more information on the nights charity, Strengthen Our Sisters from their website at: http://www.strengthenoursisters.org.

I chatted with Danielle  to talk about her family, fans and, future!

Special thanks to Elisa S. and Sarah H.

I saw My Big Fat Gay Italian Wedding last night with the cast of The Real Housewives of New Jersey!  It was for a great cause: a portion of the proceeds from the four RHONJ performances will benefit Marriage Equality New York, a group committed to securing the right to civil marriage for same-sex couples.

And it was just announced THE HOUSEWIVES WILL BE BACK IN THE SHOW IN OCTOBER!

Don’t blame it all on Danielle StaubDina Manzo claimed she left “The Real Housewives of New Jersey‘s” second season in June because of Staub, the show’s antagonist, but a source close to the 40-year-old Manzo tells us she split because of money, too. (more…)

What a week!  I swear this stuff ONLY happens in New York!

New York City Neal B Style!

New York City Neal B Style!

Here’s a recap of this week for you!

  • New Opportunities and New Events! I officially become part of the ArtofTalk.tv family! I am on board with them as a web-video entertainment & events correspondent.  So tune in to see all the fantastic content on their page (and of course Elisa’s amazing editing skills put to work!). Press release here

  • Monday’s “Miscast”. The week started off with going to Miscast 2010 is a musical presentation of Broadway stars singing songs from roles for which they would never be cast (for example, last year Alice Ripley belted Sweeney Todd’s “My Friend”).  Cast included: Mo Rocca (The Daily Show, Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me! on NPR) and will feature songs by Raúl Esparza (Company), Sutton Foster (Thoroughly Modern Mille, The Drowsy Chaperone), Montego Glover (Memphis), Ana Gasteyer (SNL alumna, The Royal Family, Wicked), Marin Mazzie (Kiss Me, Kate, Ragtime, Passion), David Miller (Il Divo), Aaron Tveit (Next to Normal, Wicked), and Tom Wopat (Catch Me If You Can, Tarzan). Here’s the article Here are a few pictures from the event

  • My Faceoff with Facebook.  The “F” word began my faceoff with Facebook.  My account was banned (hopefully temporarily).  So much for freedom of speech!  I should have learned by now! Click here for the full story

  • “Law” in Jersey.  Thanks to On Locations Vacations, we got the tip that “Law and Order: Special Victims Unit” would be willing in Fort Lee, New Jersey (right over the bridge). Law and Order: SVU is a favorite show of ours and having already saw the production team in action in NYC, we decided to pay a visit to the set.  Surprisingly. we were the only outlet there.  Maybe it was because it was cold?  My hunch was because it was Jersey!  No one wanted to cross the bridge! For the video and pictures click here

  • Nude and Nature. Elisa and I went to the village for a brand new art installation, which is getting huge buzz!  Brian Reed’s “Through the Heart of It All” combines artistic nudity, spirituality and nature for a beautifully done masterpiece.  For more information go to: For pictures and video, please click here

  • “Hair” today, gone tomorrow.   The Broadway revival cast of Hair is going to London (don’t worry- amazing replacements are coming in!) so Elisa and I were there to say farewell to some of the most amazing performers on Broadway!  THANKS ELISA FOR THE TICKETS!!  Sitting with the stars and fans, the show was purely raw, filled with intense emotion.  Click here to see some pictures/videos from the stage
