Adult film star turned Hustler Magazine photographer Gia Jordan has a wealth of stories about the porn industry.

SILENCE THE MUSICAL BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND

****
BROADWAY @ TIMES SQUARE
****

Pamela Bob And Harry Bouvy




After announcing that SILENCE! The Musical will end its run December 30th at the Elektra Theatre, ticket sales have unexpectedly soared, shattering all previous box office records for the show so far. As a result, the producers have determined that performances of the smash hit show will resume on January 18th. Originally announced as a strictly limited engagement through August 13, 2011, SILENCE! was extended numerous times by popular demand and transferred theatres twice, ultimately landing at the new Elektra Theatre in the heart of Times Square, which was constructed especially for the show. SILENCE! opened at Theatre 80 on July 9, 2011 to unanimous rave reviews and spawned a highly successful L.A. production starring Davis Gaines and Christine Lakin.



Winner of the 2012 Off Broadway Alliance Award for Best Musical, SILENCE! The Musical is the unauthorized parody of The Silence of the Lambs, with book by Hunter Bell, music & lyrics by Jon and Al Kaplan, and direction & choreography by Tony Award winner Christopher Gattelli. The show was selected by Time Magazine as one of the Top 5 Musicals of 2011.



In the Academy Award-winning film The Silence of the Lambs, rookie FBI agent Clarice Starling matches wits with the brilliant but insane cannibal, Dr. Hannibal Lecter, to catch the serial killer known only as Buffalo Bill. Clarice faces her own demons while racing the clock to unlock Lecter's clues before another innocent girl is killed and skinned by Buffalo Bill. The laugh-out-loud raunchy satire, SILENCE! The Musical, features a singing chorus of floppy eared lambs narrating the action as Buffalo Bill gleefully dances a hoedown while kidnapping hapless Catherine Martin. Even Dr. Lecter, scary as ever, sings about the life he'd like to lead someday outside the prison walls.



Currently featured in the cast of SILENCE! The Musical are David Ayers, Pamela Bob, Harry Bouvy, Ashlee Dupré, Natalie Joy Johnson, Howard Kaye, James Moye, Topher Nuccio, Ronica V. Reddick, Sam Rogers, Kimberly Stern, and Doug Trapp.



Created by Jon and Al Kaplan in 2002, SILENCE! began as a collection of songs on the internet which immediately attracted a staggering number of fans. The Kaplans' subsequent screenplay SILENCE! The Musical was adapted by Hunter Bell into a live stage show, which also featured newly composed songs by the brothers. Fueled by a rabid cult following, SILENCE! shattered every box office record at the 2005 FringeNYC Festival, winning the award for Best Musical. SILENCE! met with further success in London, where it garnered ecstatic reviews.


PHILANTHROPIST DHONNA GOODALE'S REALITY

Dhonna Goodale Takes Children, Teens from Shelters and Foster Care
on Annual Shopping Spree; Remembers Being ‘That Kid’

Dhonna Goodale Get's A Hug



The Children With Santa




Philanthropist-actress-reality show star Dhonna Goodale helped ensure that homeless and foster children in Riverhead and surrounding areas had a delightful Christmas. The Flanders resident and her family headed up a Christmas Eve shopping excursion to Kmart in Riverhead on Monday, where they outfitted 22 Riverhead-area children from head to toe and purchased toys of their choice.



Goodale, who was recently seen showing off her holiday decorating talents on the TLC reality show special Four Houses: Deck the Halls, has been taking children on holiday shopping sprees and otherwise helping less fortunate young people all of her adult life.



“We were taught to serve others,” said Goodale, who together with her husband Bobby Goodale is passing on the tradition by involving her own sons, Jesse , 14, and Jared, 12, in the holiday gift-giving activities. “Earlier in life I was that kid—the one who went without—and I am living proof that with perseverance you can go from welfare to philanthropy. The thought behind this activity is that when much is given, much is expected and the reason for the season is that a child was born and died for us.”

INSIDE BETHENNY FRANKEL'S NICE BREAKUP

****
US WEEKLY ROUNDUP
****

Bethenny Frankel




The cover story from the new issue of Us Weekly has all of the details on Bethenny Frankel’s split from Jason Hoppy. After nearly three years, the outspoken reality star turned head of the Skinnygirl company, 42, and Hoppy, a pharmaceutical sales exec, 41, are calling it quits. “There was no final straw. No one cheated,” says a Frankel friend. “Their marriage just wasn’t working.” At issue: everything from her massive financial success to his close-knit family. Adds the friend, “They really tried, but they grew apart. She is very upset.”



From the start, there was tension. Soon after the wedding, they were bickering like an old married couple. He made passive aggressive comments about her wearing the pants in their relationship: “My balls [were] cut off two years ago,” he quipped in 2012. And she complained about his “nitpicking” and moodiness. “I’m walking on eggshells at home,” she once confessed on camera. Like most married couples, however, their biggest blowups were all about the Benjamins. “Gender roles are a big thing with us,” Hoppy, who also deals in real estate, admitted on Bethenny Ever After. “And as a man, I never thought I’d be in a situation where my wife, financially, was this successful.” With Frankel always footing the bill, “Jason felt emasculated,” says a source close to the couple. Laments a Frankel confidant, “He’s not particularly ambitious, and Bethenny is very driven.”



They didn’t see eye to eye on how to f ix their problems either. A devotee of therapy, Frankel complained that her husband refused to seek help as their marriage unraveled. She griped, “He thinks everybody can work it out for themselves.” But in the end, the problems were insurmountable. “Bethenny fought really hard for her family,” says the friend. However, the split may have a silver lining. “She’s very smart. She will spin this into gold,” says another Frankel pal. “Her talk show will now be of interest to single moms and single women.”




HOT STUFF



Jermaine Dupri



Janet Jackson: Springtime Wedding!



What has Janet Jackson’s boyfriend done for her lately? A source tells Hot Stuff that Qatari billionaire Wissam Al Mana “gave her a huge, expensive ring” earlier this year. “She’s afraid it will get lost, so she keeps it locked up!” The luxury-brand mogul, 37, will spare no expense on his nuptials to Miss Jackson, set for spring in Qatar. The affair “will cost millions,” reveals a second Jackson insider. “He is flying in all of Janet’s friends and family on private jets.” (Quick refresher: The L.A.-based singer has seven siblings and more than 20 nieces and nephews.) Adds the source, “He wants to get a top chef to create a custom menu.” The twice-wed Nutrisystem spokeswoman, 46 – who split from Jermaine Dupri in 2009 – is eager to make it official with her love of two years. “She wants kids,” says the Jackson source. “If she can’t have them, she will adopt.”



Beyonce & Jay-Z Make Nice


 Beyonce




Only Beyonce and Jay-Z can upstage Santa Claus. A source tells Hot Stuff the power duo, who live in NYC’s Tribeca neighborhood, “got everyone in their apartment building boxes of chocolates and a card – signed by both of them!” The insider adds the pop diva, 31, and rapper, 43, wanted to give the residents (including Bethenny Frankel!) something personal for the holidays: “They know their presence makes things a little crazy.”



Lea’s Spending Limit



Lea Michele




Lea Michele won’t be getting everything on her list this year. A source tells Hot Stuff that Cory Monteith, 30, set a spending limit for their holiday presents to each other - $2,000! – and the actress, 26, was “pouty about it at first.” But Monteith told her “the only gifts that he ever saved were the ones that had thoughts behind them,” continues a pal. And it wasn’t long before the Glee starlet changed her tune. “She told him she’d blow his mind for $2,000. She thought of it as a challenge!”

The Times Square Alliance and Countdown Entertainment, co-organizers of New Year's Eve in Times Square, announced today that revelers across the globe will get to experience the Times Square New Year's Eve Celebration via a six hour, live commercial-free webcast of the event.

Additional features will include interviews with revelers who made the journey to Times Square to experience the iconic global celebration, behind-the-scenes interviews with the producers of New York City's largest annual celebration, a live chat with viewers around the world, the story of how the party started in Times Square in 1904, and a special debut performance on the NIVEA Kiss Stage by an unsigned artist whose rendition of the hit pop song, "This Kiss," received the most video views in a contest to support aspiring musical talents.


For the first time, Livestream has partnered with Tumblr to Live-GIF the entirety of the New Year's Eve festivities. Tumblr has selected three talented GIF makers out of their wide community of bloggers to work with the Livestream team to customize and create animated GIFs for the duration of the evening's broadcast.

QUEEN EXTRAVAGANZA AT BERGEN PAC CENTER

NEW JERSEY GOSSIP
****

Queen Extravaganza




After making their television debut in front of 20 million viewers on American Idol earlier this year and wrapping up an incredibly successful coast to coast U.S. and Canadian tour last summer, the Queen Extravaganza have announced the first leg of their 2013 tour at Bergen Performing Arts Center in Englewood New Jersey on Tuesday January 15, 2013 at 8PM, reserve tickets now at Ticketmaster.com or by calling the box office at 201 227 – 1030 or visit the Box Office at 30 North Van Brunt Street, Englewood, New Jersey.



"The response to the second tour for the Queen Extravaganza tells us that the word is spreading about this sensational live act!” says Taylor. “Don't miss them.”



The Queen Extravaganza is a spectacular touring concert show designed to take the glorious music and live experience of legendary rock band Queen and bring it to generations of fans.


“We did the first 10 years of our career with just the four of us, no additions, you know the technology wasn't there," Taylor says. "We were relying on stripped down adrenalized versions of our songs and our own personalities. But with this band, we continue to push all the musical boundaries with technology that was not available to the four of us originally. This band is a powerhouse of talent. To hear our songs performed by them gives fans a chance to hear them (our songs) now as they could have done then and perhaps technically, even better!!"

BABY FOR COWELL AND ELECTRA IN FUTURE

****
ON THE NEWSSTAND
****

Metropolis Nights




Simon Cowell might want to think about shopping for strollers and diapers. In the January issue of Metropolis Nights magazine (NY/NJ newest entertainment magazine), his new new girlfriend Carmen Electra tells only Chaunce Hayden she wants to have a baby!

Carmen also tells Hayden how she thought her career was over until she decided to turn to singing......




CARMEN ELECTRA ON HAVING CHILDREN:



I want to be a mom. I love kids. I just love kids. They put you in a good mood and they are so full of life. That is a relationship I would really cherish. If it doesn’t happen I’m okay with that to. But I do have a strong desire to be a mom.


Would you consider adoption?


I would do that! I haven’t gotten to that place yet, because I want to do all my selfish things first so I can get into that place where there is no resentment. I want to be the best mom I can be. My mom was amazing. She believed in me and we were best friends. The loss of her was really tough for me. So now I yearn for that relationship.



CARMEN ELECTRA ON FINDING HER WAY BACK TO SHOWBIZ:



I was at a crossroad. But now I have more of a career vision of what I want to do. There were a couple of years where I lost some inspiration. I didn’t really have a clear direction of what I wanted to do. As you know, it’s important to know exactly what you want to do. I’m really lucky I’ve had a great support system and great friends encouraging me to follow my heart and to do what I love to do.


Which is?


My music. It’s all or nothing again. My fans have supported me through the ups and downs and my fans have always been there for me. When my career was a little slow and I felt uninspired they were there for me. Now I want to show them how much their support means to me. I just want to entertain.

TELEVISION NEWS

Jack Klugman




Odd Couple legend Jack Klugman, has died at age 90.


Klugman died at his Northridge, Calif. home today, with his wife at his side, the Associated Press reported.


Born in rough-and-tumble South Philadelphia to Russian Jewish immigrants, Klugman took the part that made him famous in the 1970s, playing the sloppy, cigar-puffing Oscar Madison opposite Tony Randall as neurotic neat freak Felix Unger.



Klugman and Randall shared a New York City Manhattan apartment that entertained ABC viewers for five seasons.


Klugman won two Emmy Awards and earned a Golden Globe as Oscar, a New York sports journalist.



Having photographed Jack Klugman many times over the years, he was always a class act who always wanted to pose for some good shots. Another legend that will surely be missed.

ABC'S SAM CHAMPION WEDS RUBEM ROBIERB

Sam Champion and Rubem Robierb wed



ABC News weather editor and "GMA" anchor Sam Champion and Rubem Robierb wed in an intimate ceremony at Champion’s New York City apartment Friday afternoon. They were surrounded by friends, family and Champion’s fellow “GMA” anchors. Robierb’s mother and sisters even Skyped in from Brazil to be a part of the special day.



N.Y. State Supreme Court Justice George J. Silver conducted the ceremony, which lasted about 10 minutes. Robin Roberts also played a part in the nuptials, reading a beautiful poem by Elizabeth Barrett Browning.


Earlier in the day on “GMA,” Champion spoke about the big day. When Lara Spencer asked him if he was nervous, he replied, “The whole family is at the house right now, so I should be able to walk in and have everything [done].” Though he didn’t divulge any details, Champion joked about the first dance song. “Is ‘Stairway to Heaven’ out of the question? That was the ‘70s love song.”


He also received some advice from his married co-stars. George Stephanopoulos advised him to “remember every second” and Elizabeth Vargas seconded that notion. “Be present in every single moment,” she said. “As big as today is, it’s the rest of your life that is really amazing.”



Champion and Robierb met through mutual friends a few years ago in Miami, where Robierb lives. Born in Brazil, Robierb is an artist who shows his work in Miami, Atlanta, Santa Monica and New York. The two announced their engagement in October.



The newlyweds plan to have a party in Miami December 31 to further celebrate their nuptials.

US Weekly Cover




The cover story from the new issue of Us Weekly has all of the details on Channing Tatum’s and Jenna Dewan-Tatum’s baby news! Yes, Hollywood’s sexiest husband-and-wife team are capping off an amazing year by sharing their happy news with Us. “Channing’s going to be the best dad,” Dewan-Tatum, 32, gushes to Us. “Channing is so excited for the baby,” says a friend of the couple. “He’s been wanting this a long time. They are over the moon about becoming parents.” Sports nut Tatum “will be happy no matter what the baby is,” says a friend. “But he’d love to have a little boy to throw the ball around with.” Boy or girl, when the new little one arrives, Dewan- Tatum told Us in September, the child will no doubt share Mom and Dad’s moves: “It’s going to come out dancing!”



Also included below are this week’s Hot Stuff items which include the scoop on the Queen inviting Kate Middleton’s parents to the Royal Christmas gathering, Rita Ora’s secret fling with Jonah Hill while dating Rob Kardashian, Melissa Gorga’s new book deal, and Christina Aguilera’s surprise birthday bash.




HOT STUFF



DUCHESS KATE: The Queen’s Grand Offer


HRH asks the duchess’ folks to join her family for Christmas



The mother-in-law of all invites! Defying decades of tradition, Queen Elizabeth II has extended an offer to Duchess Kate’s parents, Carole and Michael Middleton, to take part in the royal family’s annual Christmas gathering at the Sandringham Estate. Although nonroyals have never been included in the celebration — which features black-tie dinners and a pheasant shoot — Her Majesty hopes the invite might encourage the expectant princess to attend, “despite this difficult time,” says a source. The duchess, who is suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum (an intense form of morning sickness), has been staying at her parents’ Bucklebury home since December 12. Although Kate, 30, felt well enough to present at a London awards show December 16, she won’t finalize her Christmas plans “until the night before or the morning of,” says an aide. “It depends how she feels. And if Catherine doesn’t go, [Prince] William probably won’t either.” Sorry, Granny!



Rita’s Secret Fling!



Rob Kardashian 



One person who isn’t amused by Jonah Hill: Rob Kardashian. A source says Kardashian, 25, dumped Rita Ora, 22, because he learned she had hooked up with the actor! “Rita spent the night with Jonah during a trip to New York,” says a source of Ora, who had been dating Kardashian on and off for nearly a year. “Then Jonah bragged about it to friends, Rob found out and Rita confessed! That was the last straw.” A Twitter tirade followed, in which the reality star sniped that he was “disgusted” with his ex.



MELISSA’S BOOK DEAL: Teresa Is ‘Gonna Flip’



Teresa Giudice



Melissa Gorga’s icy relationship with sister-in-law Teresa Giudice is about to get chillier. Hot Stuff has learned Gorga (wed to Giudice’s brother Joe since 2004) is penning a tome for St. Martin’s Press titled Love, Italian Style: The Secrets of My Hot and Happy Marriage, in which she “reveals what she’s learned as a wife,” says a source. Gorga’s topic will hit her rival where it hurts. “Teresa wants people to think she has a great marriage, but she doesn’t,” says the source, adding Giudice “is gonna flip” when she hears about the book. The Fabulicious! author, 40 — who has denied reports her husband is unfaithful — refuses to even acknowledge Gorga, 33, per the source. At a recent Hurricane Sandy charity event, “they stayed on separate sides of the room.”



Her Surprise B-day Bash


 Christina Aguilera



Christina Aguilera didn’t pick a winner on The Voice this season — but she chose one in her love life. On December 15, her boyfriend of two years Matt Rutler, 27, surprised her with a 32nd birthday bash. “She went out shopping and came back to a party!” says a source. Twenty pals, including Nicole Richie and fellow TV mentor Blake Shelton, attended the fete, which featured pink balloons and fixins like mac ’n’ cheese. The sweetest part? A Vanilla Bake Shop cake decorated with fishnets and her signature Voice fan. Says the source, “Everyone sang ‘Happy Birthday,’ including Blake!”

12210 Banyan Road
K2 Realty announced the closing of the sale of a major oceanfront estate at 12210 Banyan Road located in Seminole Landing, North Palm Beach, FL - a transaction that was completed within six months due to a coordinated effort between K2 teams representing both the seller and the buyer. Considered one of the most significant private estates to come to market in Palm Beach County in recent years, the Banyan Road property was listed by the firm in April, 2012 and closed in September, 2012 with the K2 team of Paul Kaneb, James Kenny and Gary Pohrer representing the transaction.



Situated on four acres, the 21,000-plus square-foot Tuscan-style home has some 247 feet of ocean frontage, seven bedrooms, a theater, wine room plus VIP guest suite.

K2 Realty is proud that, based on more than a decade of successfully marketing exclusive estates in private South Florida communities, we were able to provide both sides with exactly such a team effort and a superb and timely result.”
