Ms. Racing Queen

I spent my St. Patty’s Day as a judge for the Ms. Racing Queen pageant at Gulfstream Park in Hallandale! Not only was it exciting to help select the 5 ladies who will compete as finalists with 5 additional finalists from the Santa Anita Race Track in So Cal, but I was able to educate myself a bit in the sport of horse racing as well!! This was the second week I have been able to participate as a judge…each week they have been narrowing it down, culminating in the FINALS next Sunday, where they will crown the queen — uh, did I mention she will take home a cool $100k!?!? Not a bad gig, eh??? Good luck to all the ladies…see some of my pics from today’s event!! 🙂

I’m the host of a new show on MY TV 33 in South Florida. It airs every Saturday morning at 10am, so TUNE IN!!! 🙂 On the show I visit different dealerships and preview great deals they have on vehicles for the week, so if you’re in the market for a car…it’s the perfect place to see what’s out there. Watch the promo below….

And here’s a clip from my visit to Brickell Luxury Motors!

Campus Insiders

This weekend I’m turning in “social scene” reports for digital TV show Campus Insiders… It’s a crazy busy time in South Florida with the BCS championship going down Monday night at Sun Life Stadium. And with that, thousands of college students and fans reppin’ Notre Dame and Alabama have descended upon the Sunshine State!

Casting for “CoCo Girls”

Please spread the word and post about the “CoCo Girls” Casting coming up THIS WEDNESDAY, Dec 21 in Coral Springs. The “CoCo Girls” will be ambassadors for the Seminole Casino Coconut Creek and will consist of a dance/show team (NFL/NBA style) and the CoCo Girls will also have the opportunity to work FT as Blackjack Dealers in the casino’s “party pit” with a minimum salary of $50k/yr. Casino will pay to have you trained/certified as a dealer. Must be 18+.

Coco Girls Final

Any promo or appearances “CoCo Girls” do in addition to blackjack dealer will receive additional compensation, (i.e. practices, performances, etc…). We’re looking at a minimum of 8 appearances/performances per month…

I will be directing the “CoCo Girls” and I am definitely looking for classy, well-rounded dancers, like you see in the NFL or NBA. There will be a short choreographed number to learn and perform for the panel, so please come prepared to dance too!

**This is a great opportunity for dancers who are looking for steady work and a flexible schedule!**

You can also find the info here by Clicking on ‘CoCo Girls’ tab on left column –>

Any questions, please ask me. Also if you can’t make this audition (short notice) but are interested, let me know because if I don’t find what I want this time, we will possibly hold another audition!
