SPOTTED ON BEVERLY DRIVE

Date: 
Friday, March 29, 2013 - 5:15pm - Wednesday, May 1, 2013 - 11:00pm

WE SPOTTED Jaira Valenti , known for her role in The Hangover, going into Tutu Kids in Beverly Hills today. We asked her what she was going to buy, and she told us she was getting a pair of Swock- (something) ar- (something) ski Crystal Converse for her daughter. Very nice too.

Our trendy editor told us Jaira must have said a pair of Swarovski Crystal Converse. They are, apparently, very, very exclusive. Just as exclusive, in fact, as the tattoo on Stu’s face in The Hangover, which he got on ‘that’ night out. (By the way, are we the only ones who didn’t think those drunk guys were really that funny?)

OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN: REVIEW

Date: 
Tuesday, March 26, 2013 - 10:47am - Saturday, June 1, 2013 - 11:59pm

By Kyler Kuehler

We all have seen films that involve terrorist or foreign countries taking over a city or specific U.S. Government like Air Force One, the Pentagon or any other U.S. related area or building. In the 2013 film, "Olympus has Fallen" is just another as it is about a group of terrorist that have taken over the White House and captured the Commander in Chief (the President of the United States of America).

Just when all hope seems lost a former Special Forces operative Mike Banning (Gerard Butler), who is assigned to desk duty after a tragic accident involving the death of the First Lady, finds himself trapped in the building and realizes that he is the only hope the country has at saving the president and taking back the White House.

SPOTTED IN BEVERLY HILLS

By Miv Evans

We spotted Scott DeFalco, recurring actor on General Hospital, in the Newsroom, Beverly Hills. We asked him what he was drinking and he said apple, strawberry, banana and wheatgrass. We asked him if he’s into healthy options because of his gig as co-host on the Steve Mason show but he said no, he was drinking it because it tastes nice.

TIDBIT – General Hospital has been going for 50 years and there are apparently a group of fans who are petitioning ABC not to cut their show. If they do, we’re going to lobby the Newsroom and get them to boycott ABC News on their bar screen. Careful, ABC, that’s one helluva busy bar.
