Jessica Hahn, The secretary that caught the attention (and a little more) of televangelist / hubbie Jim Bakker.
Cybill Shepard (Maddi Hayes) steamed up the small screen in Moonlighting.
Daryl Hannah – from mermaid to Ms. Success in Wall St.
Paula Abdul, hot from the single “Forever your Girl”.
An effective, yet totally safe way to keep your street cred.
Step 1. Pick a confidant (someone you trust that won’t squeal.)
Step 2. Stage the “bitch slap” a wee distance from the group.
Step 3. Make sure you and your bitch slappee have enough distance between you so you’re hand won’t make contact (3ft should do the trick).
Step 4. Stare down your partner in a convincing way.
Step 5. Pre-determine a sarcastic remark he can say before you bitch slap him.
Step 6. Keep both hands at your sides. Then lift your bitch slap hand up to the side of your head with your elbow bent at a 90º degree angle.
Step 7. Swing your hand at the bitch slappee while lifting your other hand to the other side of the face.
Step 8. As your had slightly misses the person’s face it will connect with the other hand and make a clapping noise.
Step 9. Make sure the bitch slappee reacts in a convincing fashion.
BOTCHED BITCH SLAP.

Couple of guys on the sales force in our company told me the holiday season is pretty much their best time to go trolling for perspective clients. People tend to get into the spirit and let down their gatekeeper guard to join them for drinks or lunch. Unfortunately, since they are just one of many vendors vying for 2010 business, face time is only half the battle. You need a hook. If you’re kind of a downer in the "winning personality cool guy" category, you might want to consider screwing around with your biz card. Cases in point…

So how much do you make for a photo? Depends. On average it can be a couple a hundred. A big payday for me would be 5 grand.
If you’re lucky enough to get that money shot (excuse the expression) how do you go about selling it? I create a low res version of the photo and place a watermark over it. That’s those symbols you see on stock photography to prevent people from using it. Since I don’t have an agent I email the photo myself to publication buyers.
What are some of the criteria the pubs look for? Obviously who the celebrity is is at the top of the list. Some of the other factors are quality of the photo and what the celebrity is actually doing.
What type of equipment is a MUST for your profession? Totally need to get a top quality digital camera with decent zoom lenses. Lots of memory cards (with mega-space) are also key.
Where’s the easiest place to catch some celebrity action? Movie shoots on location work best for me. If they have a talk show appearance, I usually hang outside the studio.
Do ever use any secret sources? I sometimes hire private investigators to do the legwork for me. It can be a big help, but it takes away from your profits.

You blink your eyes and already we're down to a month and change left for '09. Soon we'll be welcoming in 2010. Which means a whole new crop of mid-season reality shows. Here’s a sneak peek at 3 series that are hoping to make a big splash on the small screen.
FANTASIA: American Idol Season 6 winner will be starring in an unscripted series on VH-1. The show will go behind the scenes in Ms. Barrino’s everyday "mommy ‘n music" filled life.
KIRSTIE ALLEY: Fresh off her highly publicized weight loss and gain, comes the second round in the Kirstie Alley saga. A&E’s 10 episode series will delve deep into Kirstie’s life, which deals with a new weight loss program, producing a film and raising 2 daughters.
TONY ROBBINS: The king of motivation is taking his act on the road with NBC along for the ride. The show is being produced by Biggest Loser creators and will be centered around Tony trying to help people in need turn their lives around.

Congrats to the over-zealous media monster. Fame has once again maybe caused yet another Boyle breakdown. Seems Susan Boyle was exhibiting some odd behavior at the Rock Centre café in Rockefeller Center in NYC. The 48 year old began to appear increasingly withdrawn and started to tremble and suck her thumb. A bit later Boyle was visibly overcome with emotion, she bowed her head and began to sob. She then performed a “lively dance” after realizing she was crying in front of the public. A spokesman said “Susan was just overjoyed and extremely touched with the reception she had from everyone in America.” Her first breakdown (after narrowly losing Britain’s Got Talent), landed her in a mental health hospital.

‘Tis the season to take advantage of tons of bargains at your neighborhood uber-mega-superstores. Of course to do that you need to wade through a sea of crazed shoppers. Now I’m a native NYer, so I’m no stranger to crowds. It does serve me well during the rest of year shopping in malls and department stores. However, during the holiday season, you need to up your game when it comes to the thrill of the bargain hunt. Here’s my 5step technique to improving your shopper shoving & grabbing skills.
THE SECRET GRAB
Step 1. Eye the prize: When looking for what you want DO NOT be obvious. Treat it like when your girlfriend asks you to nonchalantly look at a cute guy. If you get over-excited and look directly at the prize, you might alert a shopper that’s closer by.
Step 2. Take the angled path: B-lining straight for the product will alert other shoppers to your intended shopping item. So walk in a calm, angled fashion. Go near the product, but not right on top of it. When you are in striking (grabbing) distance, do a gradual turn towards the item in question. Then in a relaxed manner claim your prize.
THE SHOVE FACTOR
Step 3. Shove nicely: The most common misconception of “shopper shoving” is people think it needs to include some ‘tude. WRONG! Always be polite when shoving your way through crowds. Again, you just want to get to the prize, that's all. Pissing someone off will just take vital time away from reaching your goal. While moving through just simply say, “excuse me,” or “oops sorry, my bad,” and be on your merry way.
Step 4. Scoot don’t shove: Don’t bend in, or put your full force into a shove. That will only make the shovee think you’re out for blood, rather than an honest mistake. Instead do a "wiggle scoot" between people. You’ll make much less enemies that way.
Step 5. Hands up: Keeping your hands up while shoving is a sign of submission, that you are just trying the move through the crowd in peace. It also decreases your surface area making the "wiggle scoot" must easier (see diagram below).

I just fell victim to what I like to refer to as GIMMICK-FASHION.
3 lucky bottles of the NEW Essie Judith Ripka Limited Edition nail polish contain hidden treasures. Judith Ripka (the famous jewelry designer) has placed 3 of her gems (a diamond, emerald and sapphire) in three bottles out of the hundreds sold. Each bottle sells for ten bucks! A bit pricy for polish, but one lucky bottle could net you 100 times more.
Of course this promotion sets a slew of questions in motion. Do I have that lucky bottle? If so how do I know? The gem is inside a tiny bottle that is not translucent in the least; so do I pour all the polish out? What if there is no gem? How do I get the polish back in the bottle?
My advice to you treasures seekers….buy a funnel.

The folks at ASSME (Mediaelites) took time out of their busy day to do a bit of blog bashing aimed at our site. Personally, I think it’s the coolest thing in the world. At the very least, it means we are blog-topic worthy. We’ve even gotten a surge of viewers from just that article alone. Definitely proves the “No press is bad press” adage.
In all honestly, I do see the point of their article. It points out how our site advertises on Craigslist (A LOT) to get viewers. In their minds we’re sorta like the squeegee guys of the blog world. And to that I say, you’re half right. It absolutely is our goal to nab viewers, but it’s not only for the blog. We’re hoping it would help the writers as well. Here’s our simple Huffington-esque formula…
People write stuff on our blog
They get a writing credit for their resume
companies see their work
= WRITER GETS A JOB
So far (in the 4 months we've been around) NWM has been getting a steady stream of viewers that seem to like the content. How will that help writers like KC, Joshen, Jani, Barry, Tom, Eddie, Biz-Boy, Nameless Dad, Greg and others? Only time will tell.
BTW...Willy Loman? Really? We’re not that big yet, but thanks for the sentiment.

This is a description of a first hand encounter. This does not follow my normal news reporting style of article writing. VIEWER DISCRETION IS ADVISED. I was walking home at approximately 11.15pm last night and passed a small playground. The type that is usually attached to a school or church and is no bigger than an average parking lot for a retail store. From the park, I could hear the grunts and squeals of what sounded like a woman being assaulted, I carefully approached the shadowy figures on the floor hoping that my presence would be enough to scare the creep off. Hoping I wouldn’t get assaulted myself (Never take this course of action, don’t be a hero.) Suddenly a smell like no other wafted into my nostrils, it was the most pungent, disgusting thing I ever dared smell. On the ground were two very dirty very tattered looking individuals telling me to get out of here. They seemed to be involved in what I can only describe as “happy wrestling”, at least that would be my G-rated term. Now I am not sure they were homeless, but they displayed all the tell tale signs. Amazed and disgusted I left and they continued. I never really took the time to grasp the concept that homeless people engage in sexual intercourse. Who would have known?

So cyber Monday is right around the corner. Seems it started in 2005 as " black Fridays online sibling". " e- tailers" put out their best online deals hoping to attract those who shop online , myself included. Just why is it such a big day? With the economy the way it is and the increase of online shopping , e-tailers are putting it all out there! So here are some cyber Monday tips:
- if you are confused about the game your kid wants, learn more at IGN before buying.
- if you think it's spam it probably is compare prices with online tools like NextTag or google product search.
- pay attention to the deal requirements, some sales actually start at specific times of the day.
