Fox Business Network debuted Jamie Colby's new show in January called Strange Inheritance. The hit show airs Monday to Thursday at 9:00 p.m. in half-hour episodes. The show examines “real-life stories of unconventional inheritances.” Each evening, two half-hour episodes  air back-to-back featuring Colby as she explores a range of unusual circumstances from a family trying to keep a 900-acre bug museum in business to the discovery of a rare 1913 Liberty Head nickel. Colby joined FNC in 2003 and took a hiatus from her current role as co-anchor for the network’s America’s News Headquarters to film FBN’s Strange Inheritance.

Strange Inheritance is produced by Towers Productions, which is known for such programs as The History Channel’s Gangland, National Geographic’s Inside 9/11, The Weather Channel’s Storm Stories and A&E’s American Justice.

The Floral Designer to the Stars Alix Astir makes her formal debut as New York’s “Rose Queen,” covering the June issue of Resident magazine. The founder of Trellis Fine Florals is a cut above the rest. All hail the Queen!

We recently went to a great party at Texas de Brazil to celebrate the fantastic cover and a host of celebrities and fashionable New Yorkers were there.

Alix Astir In The Resident
As Resident Magazine put it, Alix explores the corners of Manhattan’s flower district with commanding charisma. Vendors nod in recognition…and respect. She moves deftly from storefront to awning, navigating one of the nation’s most historic markets like the insider she was born to be. Alix lingers over some roses, running a manicured finger over blush-hued petals. “Fresh flowers have life in them,” she says. “They’re vibrant, strong, unbending. These have probably been in the warehouse a week. See how they are starting to goose neck?” She points at a floppy rose head, and moves on, assessing more blooms. It’s no accident that Alix Astir became New York’s Rose Queen. She strives to be the Anna Wintour of roses: a connoisseur known for a flick of the wrist, a subtle nod to the way art beds commerce, and we all stand to benefit. “This is New York, baby. We get to choose perfection here: isn’t that incredible?” she says, with a wink that broadcasts floral runway supermodel having the time of her life.

Philanthropist Jean Shafiroff was there as were New York Legend George Wayne and superstar Cynthia Bailey. Resident Editor Christopher Pape was all smiles with Cassandra Seidenfeld and the event was a huge success.
