I’m Your Man

You told me again you preferred handsome men
but for me you would make an exception.

R.I.P Larry Hagman

Larry Hagman, who died yesterday at the age of 81, was of course best known for playing the evil J.R. Ewing on Dallas, a show that I never much watched and found boring on the few occasions when I did. I enjoyed Hagman much more on I Dream of Jeannie.

Robert De Niro BLASTS Jay-Z For Being "Disrespectful"

Iconic actor Robert De Niro is said to have given Jay-Z a good reading at Leonardo DiCaprio's birthday party, calling him "rude & disrespectful". Find out what upset Hov's Tribeca neighbor inside and get the deets on Hurricane Sandy fundraisers that Kanye West and Nicki Minaj will be involved in....

When Robert De Niro answer. And if you aren't'd better call him back. At least that was the message given to Hip Hop mogul Jay-Z who had the audacity to ignore one of the most respected men in New York.

Shown above with his wife Grace Hightower, Robert confronted Jay-Z the other night at Leonardo DiCaprio's A-list birthday bash at The Darby in Manhattan. It seems that Jay had agreed to record a song for the Tribeca Film Festival (the upscale movie showcase that De Niro founded in remembrance of 9/11) and Robert was interested in talking about it.

But the problem is....he could never get the rapper on the phone. In fact, he called him six times and Jay still didn't call him back. Needless to say....Mr. De Niro is not used to being ignored and he was not pleased.

So when Jay got to the party, Robert confronted him. While some sources say the conversation was heated (on Robert's part) other's say it was a private conversation that was overheard by others. A source told Page Six,

"Bob wasn’t in any mood to make polite conversation. He told Jay that if somebody calls you six times, you call them back. It doesn’t matter who you are, that is just rude. De Niro kept telling him that he thinks he’s the man, but that he was disrespectful.’ ”

Jay tried to joke it off, Robert was still pissy. At one point, Beyonce walked across the room and tried to intervene and still....that ish didn't work.

Uh oh...

Hello November - Part 3

All I remember about that phone conversation is that when he asked me out he suggested we invite Alana and Nick along. I disagreed and suggested we go just the two of us.

The next day, I walked to meet him outside Sanity on Bourke St. I couldn't quite remember what he looked like but I was happy with what was waiting for me when I arrived.
First thing we did was go and have a coffee which is funny since I discovered later that Gonzalo hates coffee. After that, he took me to see a movie at the Asian cinema. I thought this was pretty cool, something different, but it was the weirdest movie. I don't know what it was called but everyone came out at the end amused but very confused. The only thing that was exchanged between Gonzalo and I during the movie was a few nervous smiles.
It was after the movie that the real magic happened.
He walked me across the Yarra and we sat down to soak in the atmosphere. A man was playing the saxophone and there were colored lights changing on the buildings.
I told Gonzalo I was feeling cold and that's when he made his move. He grabbed my hands and pulled me in for a kiss.
Just as we started to kiss, the church bells started to ring. It was like a big romantic sign, like a scene in a movie.
Before I went home, we got our photo taken in a photo booth. Looking at those photos now is so special, it really makes me believe in fate, we were meant to be.
When he put me on the train to go home, I think I started to panic a bit. It was such a perfect date, I liked him so much, I was nervous!

The Blueprint

“Be careful how you judge,”.“A lot of deception out there. A lot of misunderstanding out there. A lot of miscommunication out there. A lot of false information out there. A whole lot and notice after all the people that just talk, talk, talk, who’s the silent one? And you know why? Let me tell you why I don’t really chat back. Because I know that my brothers and my sisters are often times pawns in a bigger scheme. So when they, under pressure, attack me I love them still.”
