Jill Kargman Climbs a "Stairway to Cabaret" at the Café Carlyle
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Not sure whether or not Jill Kargman would riff on the Led Zepplin classic "Stairway to Heaven," I had to admit, the comedienne, creator of Bravo's Odd Mom Out, and author of Sprinkle Glitter on my Grave brought something different to the Café Carlyle. The set list, for example, featured only eight songs. Kargman is gifted at stand up, weaving songs and stories together into a funny, entertaining evening, spoken from the perspective of an East Side mom at odds with the prevailing ethos. Tales of a Southern nanny named Sue, a Bulgarian make up artist, and a trip to Disneyworld gave new meaning to Jon Bon Jovi/ Richie Sambora's "Wanted Dead or Alive," the Alice Cooper, Desmond Child, John McCurry hit "Poison," and Nikki Sixx, Mick Mars, Tommy Lee's "Girls, Girls, Girls." Eschewing cabaret convention, Kargman did away with a ceremonial introduction to her band: musical director Marco Paguia on piano under the direction of Trip Cullman, flying by their mention. And, there was no enc...

Prince death sets off heavy metal feud
Yahoo News - almost 2 years
The death of Prince has set off a feud in a very different realm of the music world with members of metal giants Motley Crue and Kiss taking each other to task. The rift began when Gene Simmons, bassist of makeup-clad glam rockers Kiss, called Prince's April 21 death "pathetic" and described it as a choice because of the pop icon's reported use of painkillers. Simmons, who is known for right-leaning views and earlier this year disparaged rap as an art form, apologized for his remarks about Prince but was hit by a stinging rebuke from Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx.

Susan Holmes-McKagan: 5 Fabulous Fall Leather Must-haves
Huffington Post - over 5 years
It is that time of year again, when we are edging near cooler nights and tougher looks. First thing, fashion-wise, that comes to my quasi-rocker/designer/writer/fashionista-mom mode of style is bring on the sweater weather and don't forget the leather. This year, more than ever, we're seeing nuances of cool vintage revival (think Hell's Angel biker babe meets Bridget Bardot's sweet yet wild side) strutting down the runways, for some chic leather Renaissance reunion. Here goes my lovely list of luxurious leather must-haves... 1. DOLCE & GABBANA (Sicily Bag) I have a personal vested interest in this always fashion-forward brand that never ceases to put a different spin on utility and style, especially when it comes to their beautiful lambskin leather purses. My love and appreciation for Domenico and Stefano (the founding genius duo behind Dolce & Gabbana that commenced in 1982) was instant.

'Baywatch' Star Fears Abduction
Huffington Post - over 5 years
If "Baywatch" babes are not typically drawn to historical legend, then Donna D'Errico is not your typical "Baywatch" babe. D'Errico recently set out on a quest for Noah's Ark in Turkey, but halted the hunt after injuring herself on a mountain and fearing abduction. D'Errico had been traveling along Mount Ararat, where the Ark is said to be hidden, with a documentary film crew, when she suddenly slipped on a rockslide, according to TMZ. Her climbing partner caught her before she fell off a cliff, but it was enough to shake the actress up. "I've just always wanted to climb Mt. Ararat and search for Noah's Ark," she told TMZ. "And I know everybody thinks it's funny and it's a big joke and people don't believe in it ... but I do ... and I've wanted to do it ever since I was a kid." However, bloody cuts and bruises were not all the 44-year-old actress had to worry about. She also feared abduction. D'Errico and her fellow Noah's Ark hunters faced the possibility of b...
