“Football Player” Dances with the Dance Team

One of my good girlfriends in Arizona coaches the Sidewinders aka the Arizona Rattlers Dance Team and last night she shared a beyond awesome video with me of a performance during one of their arena football games. I started watching the video thinking her girls looked GREAT, dancing so clean and sharp…and then out of nowhere a “football player” – IN UNIFORM, jumps in and breaks it down…easily outshining the ladies! I told her this is too awesome not to share and she replied by telling me he was responsible for choreographing the whole routine too!! LOVE IT! Press play, you won’t regret it!

Desert Stop

I made an Arizona desert stop last week to shoot a couple story segments for a new Health & Lifestyle program I am working on ..and of course had to squeeze in a little time to catch up with a few Phoenix friends and this time it included meeting a couple of new additions.

Here I am with (l-r) Reina, Christy, me and Marette at Geisha


And..Marette brought along her newest “best man” Alijah – he’s such a smiley baby!!


Jaseon is an old school Phoenix homie who’s since moved back to the Bay, but he just happened to be in town to hang…it was like a reunion!!


I also caught up with a fellow TV newser, Caribe and her sweetie Neveah… 🙂


Home Improvement


I had to take an “emergency” trip to Phoenix to handle some unexpected repairs at my house, and it turned into a 3-day marathon of home improvements. We’re talking new carpets, painting all the walls and garage door, as well as fixing, replacing and DEEP cleaning of the entire house…among other things!

Thank goodness my friends Reina, Christy and Angie were around to lend their helping hands and keep me sane. Reina even created task lists and kept me focused! 



Reina and I also made several Home Depot runs and discovered “Stardust Building Supplies” in Mesa, where you can find things like replacement toilet tank covers (yes, I needed to replace a damaged one)!

I’m so amazed at what we accomplished in just a few days…I guess I should’ve filmed it and turned it into an episode of Extreme Home Makeover or something for HGTV! lol

NBA All Star Weekend

I made a trip to the desert (Phoenix) for NBA All Star weekend…I was multi-tasking between visiting with my West Coast girls, making new friends and working On The Flipside! (Above) That’s the “Sneaker Sensei” with me and my girls at the “Best of the West” gaming competition at Stoudemire’s Downtown.

Highlights of the weekend included the Lexus Fashion Show, House of Hennessy and NBPA Gala, as well as hanging out at the W Hotel in Scottsdale! Look out for my All Star interviews with Chamillionaire, Akon, Jadakiss, Dominique Wilkins, Jason Kapono, Adonal Foyle and more of the sights and sounds from Phoenix…on the All Star edition of On The Flipside!
