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.

SATC2 Premiere – A Sex & the City 2 Glitzburgh Movie Review!

27 May

Last night, I was lucky enough to attend the 96.1 KISS fm VIP Private Midnight Screening and “Pink Carpet” Party for”Sex & the City 2″ with 3 of my girlfriends. (In a Private VIP Box, equipped with leather recliners, free refreshments, and a concierge, I might add! We won that at random, which was a lovely way to cap off an already-fabulous evening of martinis and sushi)

Let me preface this review by saying that I’ve been “training”  for this movie release for a couple of weeks now: shopping, catching up on the first AND last seasons (gotta have all your bases covered) and, of course, re-watching the first movie which I’ve seen a gazillion times (and also saw on opening night.) That being said, I’m obviously a diehard SATC fan. Just a warning.

So, while I was beyond excited to see this movie, and even more excited that a friend gave me the chance to go to this premiere so that I could see the midnight screening, I also didn’t want to have super-high expectations or “set the bar” too high in my head. (I did, however, pick out my outfit a week in advance, an LC Lauren Conrad black sequin boyfriend blazer that I’m in love with. Chose it before I even knew I was going to this event.) Anyway, back to the point: sequels are never as good as the original. I knew that, I expected that, and while I was pumped, I sort of wasn’t going to psych myself out about it. Just putting that out there.

I was smart to do that. Don’t get me wrong – the movie was GOOD. It was entertaining. It was fabulous. As always, the fashions were to die for. The location was amazing. I want to be best friends with Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte, and Miranda. (Especially Carrie. I’m SO CARRIE!) I still find Big to be impeccably smooth, charming. How could any woman NOT love Sex and the City?

That being said….it WAS a sequel. The first one WAS better. And, in my humble opinion, NOTHING will top the show! SATC2 was lacking a little of the hilarity of the first movie, and, to me, didn’t have as much heart. I don’t do spoilers, but I will say that Miranda was a little too “happy” and Charlotte was a little too “not happy” and so that was a little confusing to me as a viewer.

And one HUGE character was missing:

New York City.

While Abu Dhabi was beyond fabulosity, and the glam and decadence was SO “right” for these gals (and it kind of made me want to hop on a camel and visit there!)….there just wasn’t enough of the Big Apple. I know, I know, we got enough of it in the series and the other movie, but, I don’t know – it was just like an old friend was missing, and it was almost absurd to see so much of these girls, who ARE New York, not IN New York — the city that became the 5th character of the show.

Some other items to take note of: Carrie’s wardrobe is still outrageous, but in her own oh-so-fantastic way, girlfriend can still WORK IT! Samantha, despite having obvious work done, has NEVER LOOKED BETTER! Softer, prettier, but still the  inappropriate, crazy, Samantha that viewers either love or hate, but, mostly love! Carrie’s body is to-die-for. Charlotte and Miranda have a particularly touching moment, as they bond over martinis, that had the audience racoucsly laughing-out-loud – but, as LOL-worthy as it was, it was also a genuine moment that moms everywhere – and really, women everywhere, will be able to relate to. And yes, as seen in previews, there’s an Aiden moment.

Duh.

There’s so much to talk about, but so much that can’t be said, because, I don’t want to ruin it for you all and the general jist of this review is this: if you are looking for a lighthearted and fun flick to check out – I do encourage you all to go see this film – ESPECIALLY if you’re a Sex and the City fan. Listen, I said it wasn’t as good as the first, but, with this cast, those writers, this location, this franchise – how could it NOT be a fun and fabulous adventure? Pure entertainment. It won’t be a letdown. It’s hard to top something as stellar as the TV show and the first film.

Sex and the City ….

“It isn’t like anyone else….”

( You’ll get that after seeing the movie 😉  )

PS:  Mini-spoiler: Thumbs down – Watch out for corny and cliche karaoke scene! And a horrible cameo/song by Liza Minelli. I just threw up in my mouth a little bit. The soundtrack would get far worse reviews than the movie. The much-talked-about 80’s flashback is barely a blip on the radar. On the other hand – a thumbs up – super-fun shoes that Carrie scores for $20.00 at the spice market! You have to have the GUSTO to pull those suckers off, though! 🙂

2010 Pittsburgh Marathon!

2 May

Today is the 2010 Pittsburgh Marathon! (I know, not because I run, but because I got up at 7am on a Sunday to drive my boyfriend downtown.)

He and some very good friends of mine are doing the Relay. I’m rooting for “Team WTF” – Witness the Fitness!

So, “Good Luck” to Mike, Eileen, Shannon, Justin & TJ! Also a big “Good Luck” (and KUDOS!) to ALL of my friends and acquaintances doing the half-marathon and marathon! I wouldn’t even make it 2 miles LOL!

It stuns me how fast some of these runners are!

Photos from the race are already up on the official website. You can also see your friends’ times on Twitter, courtesy of TweetMyTime, or, you can follow the #PghMarathon hashtag.

Here’s the official website: http://www.pittsburghmarathon.com/

I’m going to go visit my friend (and former “boss” ha ha) DJ Bonics from KISS fm who’s DJing for the Marathon at 29th & Penn Ave, as I await for my sweetie Mikey to cross the finish line. He’s going to do it even after he’s done with his part in the Relay!

Man, on day like today, I wish I could run! 🙂

“Cake in the Break Room” Video … Oh How I Love the Morning Freak Show on 96.1 KISS!

15 Apr

So, in my humble opinion, NOTHING can touch the “Ball Shorts” video …. The Filet O’ Fish and Snuggie ones are classic, too, BUT ….. I must admit, Mikey & Big Bob’s latest, “Cake in the Break Room” had me LOLing as well!

Features a cameo from our hometown girl iJustine … and … Bob in drag.

Awesome.

While you’re at it, Ball Shorts is a MUST for this time of year, too [EXPLICIT VERSION]

Always good for a laugh, those guys 😉
