I have to tell you, this isn’t exactly the hot gossip scoop but it is something I am personally so excited about…. one of my all time favorite shows is back on Broadway. “West Side Story”…who doesn’t just want to start snapping their fingers and dancing the night away with The Jets and The Sharks? The modern day Romeo and Juliet is just a fun show that you won’t want to miss. Who can forget Riff, Bernardo, Anita, Tony and girl named Maria? “The Step It Up and Dance” winner from the Bravo reality TV show, Cody Green, plays Riff and Karen Olivio takes on the role made famous by Chita Rivera, Anita. You might now Olivio from the Broadway show “In the Heights”. IT is just a fun evening with great music and issues that after all this time are still prevalent. And while I am in the theatre mode, I just have to let you know about another oldie but goodie that is back on Broadway – “Hair”. Moving from the 50’s to the 60’s the songs are some of the best, and will make you want to get up and sing. Who can forget “Let the Sun Shine In” and “Aquarius”. If you need a pick me up with all that is going on these days I guarantee great music, hippies, free love, and peace – should help for a little while anyway.
Ok now on to some celebrity news of the day. The big news is that Lindsay Lohan and girlfriend Samantha Ronson have officially broken up. And if you think Ronson is the tough one in the relationship, I would agree with you. She had Lindsay blocked by security from coming to her sister Charlotte’s party over the weekend and changed the locks on the home where they had been living together for 6 months. Oh it is going to get ugly between these two. Lindsay Twittered to Samantha…”So – you win, you broke my heart. now go away. I loved you” for all to see. So I am curious…will Lindsay’s new mate be a girlfriend or a boyfriend? Hmmmm…. and speaking of breakups, LeAnn Rimes attended the Academy of Country Music Awards without her husband last night in Vegas. She was wearing her wedding ring but made no mention of her hubby when she accepted her humanitarian award for all the work she does for charity. The night before she gave a free concert and again no mention or sighting of her husband, Dean Sheremet. She did some great singing though as she sang her famous song “Blue” as well as “I Want You to Want Me” by Cheap Trick and “Somebody to Love” by Jefferson Airplane.
