My Day With Denise & Night With Minka

Yesterday I spent the morning with Denise Richards and the evening with Minka Kelly.

And I even had my wife’s full blessing.

I began the day by joining Fox’s Duke Castiglione on “Good Day New York” to preview the Knicks and Nets and talk a little NBA.

Before my segment, Richards was on to promote her show, “Blue Mountain State.” To read more of this story, click here

Springsteen, Bruce Willis & $6,000 Rock Photos

True story.

A couple of years ago, my wife and I were in the Morrison Hotel Gallery on Prince Street in New York and this iconic Frank Stefanko photo of a young Bruce Springsteen was going for $1,500 or $2,000 a pop. I can’t remember which.

Avid rock fans and supporters of the Morrison Gallery, we own several iconic photos of Neil Young, Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young, Jerry Garcia and Bob Dylan and George Harrison.

We thought long and hard but just couldn’t pull the trigger on the Springsteen photo at that amount. To read more of this story, click here

Antoine Dodson Getting Rich Off 'Bed Intruder' Song

Only in American could a man get rich off a song about the attempted rape of his sister.

Huntsville, Ala., native Antoine Dodson became a YouTube sensation when Auto-Tune the News took his rant about the attempted rape of his sister, Kelly Dodson, and transformed it into an R&B masterpiece.

According to Techland.com, “the song reached the top 50 on the iTunes music charts, was redone by Mario Paint and members of Paramore and New Found Glory and Relient K came up with a punk version. The entire North Carolina A&T State University marching band performed it on the football field. NPR did a story on the societal implications behind the fact a song about an attempted rape in the projects could become so popular.” To read more of this story, click here

Bruce Hornsby Talks Hoops, Music


NORTH AUGUSTA, S.C. — Last week at the Peach Jam I got a chance to interview musician Bruce Hornsby, whose son, Keith, is a 6-3 rising senior at Oak Hill (Va.) Academy committed to UNC-Asheville.

UNC-Asheville coach Eddie Biedenbach recruited David Thompson to N.C. State, I was told by my Peach Jam roommate, NYC recruiting expert Tom Konchalski.

“Eddie Biedenbach is a legend of N.C. State basketball,” Hornsby said.

The elder Hornsby, 55, said he played basketball growing up but opted for a career in music instead.

“I played basketball in high school,” he said. “I had an offer to play at Randolph Macon when they were Division 2. Now they’re Division 3. But I told the coach I wanted to play the piano. I think it’s the only time he’s ever been told that.” To read more of this story, click here

Real Live 'Caddyshack' Situation


So I’m at the town pool today with my 2 kids, Grace and James, having a fine old day.

Pine Lake Pool in Peekskill, N.Y., to be exact.

All of a sudden the lifeguards start telling everyone to get out of the pool…because, you know, some kid had let loose a “doody” in the water.

Before long, an announcement comes over the loudspeaker that everyone needs to stay out of the water for about 30 minutes.

I was instantly reminded of the famous “Caddyshack” scene and even mentioned it to this 17-year-old life guard guy sitting up in the chair near us.

“I’ve never seen ‘Caddyshack,’” the kids says. To read more of this story, click here

Report: Jeter Getting Hitched

Derek Jeter’s days as a bachelor appear to be numbered.

The New York Post reported Sunday that the Yankees shortstop and girlfriend Minka Kelly will be married Nov. 5 on Long Island.

Kelly, 29, stars in the NBC series “Friday Night Lights.”

Acting on a tip, a reporter posing as a bride-to-be spotted an entry reading “JETER wedding” on the calendar for the Oheka Castle in Huntington, N.Y. Sales manager Rick Bellando insisted that a celebrity wouldn’t be listed under his real name when the reporter pointed it out.

The Oheka Castle is the second-largest private residence in the United States and recently hosted the wedding of one of the Jonas Brothers.
