Get To Know Victor Alfieri Monday, Nov 30 2009 

Tall, Dark and HANDSOME!!!

 

Ladies, what is sexier than an Italian man?  How about an Italian man who is not only hot as hell, but tough as nails too.  Meet Rome native Victor Alfieri.  Alfieri is a former model and police officer who is now pursuing a successful career as an actor.  You daytime fans will recognize him from his stints on daytime hits like the Days of Our Lives and The Bold and The Beautiful while cinema bugs will remember him from his most recent role in Angels and Demons opposite Tom Hanks.

His brief stint in law enforcement was spurned by his harrowing experince protecting his then girlfriend from two muggers.  The brutal attack left the handsome Alfieri with cuts requiring over 50 stitches.

Multi-talented, Alfieri has produced, wrote and directed his first short film which he is developing into a full length feature.  In January 2008 he opened his own production company called Black Knight Entertainment.  Look for more from this sexy knight in shining armour in the future.

White House Party Crashed…Seriously Saturday, Nov 28 2009 

Tareq and Michaele Salahi

You gotta love the international hustle of the two professional gatecrashers who finessed their way into a state dinner at the White House.  As they say, don’t hate the playa, hate the game.  These two got pass the Secret Service, a high powered social secretary and countless A-listers to rub elbows with the President, members of his cabinet and foriegn dignitaries.  Priceless! 

I know there will be a lot of conspiracy theorist’ who will swear this is a sign that the security for our current president is purposely slack so that an assassin can get to him.  Bull!!!  I beleive this was an honest MISTAKE.  The secret service is good at what they do and you can believe this won’t happen again in our lifetime.

As editor in chief of French Vogue Carine Roitfeld is one of the most powerful women in fashion.  Prior to taking the helm at French Vogue eight years ago Roitfeld was a highly respected and well-connected fashion stylist with no experience in magazine editing.  What she lacked in experience she made up for in creative zeal.  Believed by many to be the undisputed heir to US Vogue counterpart Anna Wintour’s throne, Roitfeld has said she is not interested in the post.
