Hollywood Game Night

The whole way home my wife hit me with fact after celebrity fact in a rapid fire manner. She knows her stuff. If entertainment and celebrity news were a science my wife would be Albert Einstein.  I tried to convince her the show went great but she was frustrated.Hollywood Game Night

I wasn’t lying, I really thought she did great. She is a natural in front of a camera. She looked and acted like she was meant to be up there. But really… she did kinda choke.IMG_0641I wouldn’t normally write that she choked but she told the whole world that I wrecked the car. Which of course I did. But then again her choking goes to show how much this woman belongs on a television screen.IMG_0619You see, the Missus did not choke because she loves the movie Clueless (which she does) and Donald Faison (who is in that movie) was on the set. She did not choke because everyone else on that stage, or on that couch, were the sorts of people who get followed by photographers and written about in magazines, magazines that she herself reads -Nope- she chocked because she wants to fix that car. Cameras, producers, and celebrities did not phase her but a relatively marginal amount of money did.

IMG_0651Imagine how cool she would be if the money was already in the bag! Lets say she was on a contract, perhaps a flat fee, maybe an hourly rate, anything. She could hang with Chris Colfert, shoot the breeze with Penny Marshal, and not be nerdy with Kaley Cuoco -easy.

IMG_0596Seriously. Anyone who will jump off the armrest of a couch, on national TV, in a dress, is not afraid of a camera. And after watching the episode on air, I’m sure everyone will agree that the camera is definitely not afraid of her either.chattinwteam

My Wife Will be on TV… Again!

So the beautiful African American woman sitting on the couch is my wife. No really, she is.

If you like, you can catch my real life wife on NBC’s Hollywood Game Night this coming Monday at 8/7c

Matisyahu in Philly

My wife found the tickets while poking around Craigslist late one night.  “Hey do you have anything planned in the morning? 


I’m forwarding you a link for free Matisyahu tickets.” 

There were ten of us in the live studio audience of  “The 10 Show”, a Philly morning show that had me remembering Bob Saget and looking behind curtains for Uncle Jesse… I of course have no idea what I just made reference too… I never watched that show, it was my little sister… 

The hosts had never heard of him, or heard his music, but judging by the 7 hipsters and the two guys with yamakas sitting with me, the performance would be appreciated. 

As always, photography was not allowed. Nice shot "almost Dr." Chadwick

His song “One Day” is being used as NBC’s theme song for the upcoming Winter Olympics so he sang it three times.  He sounds better live than on record and after the third time through I was no where near tired of it. 

Couldn't really ask for a better seat

After the show he sang a couple more songs, the producer gave us one last “applause” cue, and we were done.  People sort of hung around afterwards waiting to see if Mr. Matisyahu would come hang out.  He didn’t.  

While crossing the frozen and empty parking lot we spotted a tall Orthodox Jew getting into a beat up red Acura.  You don’t see that every day in Philly so we went and introduced ourselves.  We made plans to hang out and talk about Bob Marley and be best friends but ya know, we are both pretty busy these days. 

Not quite BFF's but maybe one day when we are both less famous we can relax
