26 Oct

Reality TV star and best-selling author Teresa Giudice, of Real Housewives of New Jersey fame, will be in Pittsburgh on November 13th, 2011.

Giudice is a flashy, albeit polarizing Jersey gal who, love her or hate her, will be at the Galleria in Mt. Lebanon for an exclusive “Knock out Cancer” fundraising event.

Teresa is teaming up with 96.1 KISS fm and 3WS for this evening that includes shopping, dining, and drinking, all to raise money for local cancer research organizations.

Tickets range from $50-$100. For $75, you get a signed copy of Teresa’s cookbook, and for $100, you can get a VIP Meet and Greet with Ms. Giudice herself.

According to the website, “The evening will be filled with music from a live band, jazz music and a DJ and Chinese and silent auctions.”

Some tickets are still available for purchase and you can buy them, here.  To learn more about Teresa, you can check out her website here and her Bravo network blog, here.

Actor Joe Manganiello Makes Pittsburgh Appearance

13 Sep

On Saturday, I had the chance to meet actor Joe Manganiello (from True Blood) at the swanky Savoy restaurant in the Strip. Manganiello, a huge Steelers fan and acclaimed actor, was in town for a charity event at Children’s Hospital.

Below is a photo of him and me at Savoy — too bad it is so blurry!

True Blood Actor Joe Manganiello at Pittsburgh’s Savoy this SATURDAY!

8 Sep

How many of you ‘Burghers are ‘True Blood’ fans? (How could you NOT be, is a better question!) Join actor/resident hottie Joe Manganiello (who plays werewolf Alcide on the hit show) at SAVOY Restaurant & Lounge this SATURDAY September 10th, at 7pm.

Glitzburgh is thrilled that Joe is stopping by to try SAVOY’s (delish!) Award-Winning menu!

Manganiello – a Steelers fan –  hails from Pittsburgh. Last night, he was involved in an event with Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh — one time of many that he’s supported his hometown. He graduated from Mt. Lebanon High School and then went on to Carnegie Mellon University. While he’s most known at present for his critically-praised role as Alcide Herveaux on HBO’s ‘True Blood’ series, he also played Flash in the Spiderman movies, and had recurring TV roles on hit shows such as How I Met Your Mother and One Tree Hill.

So, swing by, have a Maniac Martini, and try Chef Kevin’s amazing appetizers! Hope to see you there. Check back Monday when we have all the scoop from the event!
