JBFCS Board President, Tony Mann


An honor that recognizes Tony Mann’s twenty years of exceptional service, the Jewish Board of Family and Children’s Services (JBFCS) has recently named Mann Board President. “Giving of oneself is more than a responsibility; it is a privilege,” says Mann. “Getting involved in something larger than myself, such as JBFCS, has taught me the importance of our accomplishments—both big and small. It is our collective impact in the city that counts and we do this by taking small steps. This has inspired me to work even harder.” In addition to his many years of service on the JBFCS Board of Trustees, Mann also served as chairman of Kaplan House, an urban residential facility for twenty-five adolescent males that provides an extensive independent-living skills program and therapeutic and support services. Last year, he launched the JBFCS Hudson Valley Ride, an an…

Shakira


Superstar Shakira has had regular therapy sessions for the past nine years in a hope to win her life-long battle with being insecure. Shakira first went for help back in 2001 because she was unhappy with her looks. And she is insisting it has changed her life. Shakira told UK's Fabulous magazine, "It helped me so much with every aspect of my life, from body image to relationships. "My therapist told me why I behaved in certain ways and not to feel so pressured. It's incredibly liberating to spend an hour talking to someone and not caring about what you sound like. It's about understanding myself. Sometimes I'll speak to my therapist for an hour a day. It's become part of my routine."

Michael Lohan


Publicity hungry Lindsay Lohan's father is going to fly to Los Angeles California in a hope to persuade his troubled daughter to check into rehab, because he's terrified she will die without professional help. Licking Lindsay has earned herself a reputation as a Hollywood party girl in over the years thanks to so many wild nights out, arrests for drug possession and driving violations and a stint in rehab. Lindsay hit the gossip columns again earlier this month when she was snapped falling into a cactus bed after a night out in Los Angeles. She was also photographed with a mystery white dust on her designer shoes last week. Michael Lohan, who has publicly spoken about his daughter's alleged prescription drug addiction in the past, is admitting he's seriously worried for his daughters health, and he's appealing for her to seek professional help before it's too late. During a press conference yesterday, he sa…

CLAY COLE RISES ---This last six months has produced an almost staggering array of music-related books; Mark Spitz’s terrific David Bowie book, which despite some naysayers, I found totally captivating; detailed, and, very factual. It made this reader realize all over again what a truly singular talent Bowie was … and, is. Phil Sutcliffe’s terrific opus, “Queen: The Ultimate Illustrated History of the Crown Kings of Rock”; “Elton” by celebrity-biographer Mark Bego; Jon Bream’s “Neil Diamond Is Forever: The Illustrated Story of the Man and His Music”; and, Paul Shaffer and David Ritz’s “We'll Be Here for the Rest of Our Lives.” Our pal Tom Cuddy gave us a new one to read: “Sh-Boom – The Explosion of Rock ‘N Roll 1953-1968”(Morgan/James Publ…

Ricky Martin



Ricky Martin has been plagued by gay for years, but he has never 'come out' as a gay man, until now. He attempted to brush off speculation about his sexuality in a candid interview almost a decade ago, stating: " The star has been in the closet for years, but in 2008 when he adopted twin baby boys, Matteo and Valentino, who born to a surrogate mother, the gossip mill started flying again. .And now Ricky has finally revealed all to fans in a post on his official website, confirming he is attracted to men. He writes, "A few months ago I decided to write my memoirs, a project I knew was going to bring me closer to an amazing turning point in my life."From the moment I wrote the first phrase I was sure the book was the tool that was going to help me free myself from things I was carrying within me for a long time. Things that were too heavy for me to keep inside. Writing this account of my life, I got very close to my truth. And this is something worth c…

Alessandra Torresani


I'm not that bad ass. But I'm Italian and Jewish. It's a bad combo. I've actually beaten down ex-boyfriends! Nobody f**ks with me. Let's just say that. I'm crazy. When a guy who I'm dating doesn't respect me and would rather be with other girls, I quickly make it known I don't take that. I've had boyfriends leave me for models. So the best revenge I can think of is being on billboards on every street in New York and Los Angeles. I hope they see that the girl they left me for don't have posters all over major cities just about them. I don't need any Karate skills. My show ["Caprica"] speaks for itself.

June Havoc


Legendary actress June Havoc, who inspired Stephen Sondheim's vaudeville musical Gypsy, has died in Connecticut at 97 years old. The actress and writer passed away from natural causes at her home in Stamford yesterday, her publicist Shirley Herz has confirmed to the media. Havoc was the younger sister of Louise, better known as stripper Gypsy Rose Lee, whose memoir served as the basis for the original stage show, about a child forced into the entertainment industry from the young age of 18 months old. Havoc was married three times and had a daughter, April Hyde Kent, with her first husband, who she married at 13 years old, after meeting on the vaudeville circuit. She went on to appear in more than 12 productions on Broadway, from Mexican Hayride and Sadie Thompson in 1944 to her final New York stage performance in an early 1980s version of Annie. She also stared in 26 films including Gentleman’s Agreement and My Sister Eileen.
