My Boys!

This is what LOVE looks like! I’m carrying 50 pounds of pure LOVE…my 2 most prized possessions! And — oh yeah, we’re posing with the 3 Miami HEAT NBA Championship Trophies! Never too early to teach them that hard work and dedication will turn you into a WINNER!!! πŸ™‚

Miami HEAT :: Harlem Shake

I had to post this…just can’t get enough of this video!!! πŸ™‚ So, this Harlem Shake “craze” has been making the rounds and everyone is getting in on the action with their own version. Well, the Miami HEAT (in my opinion) have made the best video hands down!!! I love that these guys aka millionaires, did the video as a team effort, and it’s so great to see them show off a fun side and be able to laugh at themselves being silly…and make me/others laugh and smile too! πŸ™‚

And — if you couldn’t tell who’s who…here’s a quick rundown:

Some of the mysterious characters in the #HarlemShake video: Horse = Shane Battier, Nacho Libre = Joel Anthony, Kanye Bear = Dwyane Wade, Phantom = Ray Allen, Mime = Rashard Lewis


Congratulations to the MIAMI HEAT for winning the 2012 NBA Championship!! Thank you for an unforgettable season of basketball and for bringing the trophy back to the 305!!! It’s party time!!! OH WHAT A FEELING!!!

New OTF Segments

A few new segments have been posted On the Flipside in the past month or so… I haven’t filmed any new “full” episodes, but that doesn’t mean the content stops! You can watch below and visit for more!!! πŸ™‚

Red Bull shows us how they welcome NBA All-Star Point Guard Deron Williams to their family!

Miami HEAT superstar Dwyane Wade talks about his latest kicks, the Fly Wade 2.

On The Flipside teams up with Bay Tiger Video Productions to film highlights of a rare, Bay Area appearance by Mike Tyson! The meet and greet took place at Undisputed Boxing Gym where Tyson personally autographed an exclusive lithograph for fans and posed for photos!

LeBron James “Zumba” at Equinox

My friend invited me to Zumba class last night at Equinox gym in Coral Gables for a special taping of The Ellen Show with a secret celeb…. Well, lo and behold, the “secret” celeb was none other than Miami HEAT star LeBron James! Here he is with me and the girls… πŸ™‚


Seriously, I have never taken Zumba before and it was a fun and sweaty work out…you get as good of a workout from it as you put into it! πŸ˜‰ So sweaty me was pretty surprised to see #6 walk in…good times!Β  He even stayed behind to do some “moves” with us…haha Check out the video clips.

Now the actual segment he came in for, had something to do with “Vitamin Water Zero”…and he surprised one of Ellen’s writers, Amy…and did this crazy taste test. I’m sort of like “background atmosphere” in these don’t blink, but I’m in a black “Equinox” shirt and off white yoga pants…sort of a few rows back..and my hair is off my face…let’s play “Where’s Aubrey?” GO!!

So yeah, probably the most interesting group exercise class I have taken in a loooooong time!! ZUMBA! #fitnessfirst

So You Think You Can >> DANCE!

The Pro Cheer and Dance workshops I am coordinating for Going Pro Entertainment are shaping up very nicely and spots are filling up fast!! These “dance conventions” are designed to prepare women who are interested in becoming professional dancers and/or cheerleaders for Pro Teams in the NFL, NBA, AFL, MLB and other sports leagues. All the events are staffed by alumni of their respective dance and cheer teams, and it’s been so exciting for me to build all-star rosters for each of the conventions I am putting together in Miami and the Bay Area…my 2 homes!

First up, the Miami Pro Dance Convention – Sunday, February 27, 2011 at FitSource in North Miami. The NFL’s Miami Dolphins Cheerleaders auditions are coming up on April 30, 2011. Click here to see an episode of On The Flipside when I judged their auditions for the 2009 season! The convention is also a great way to prep for Miami HEAT Dancer auditions this summer. Miami Pro Dance 2011

The Miami workshop will feature choreography and presentations by:
**Trisia Brown, NFL Cheerleader – Miami, NFL Pro Bowl Cheerleader, NFL & Pro Bowl Choreographer
**Eli Ferrades, NBA Dancer- Miami
**Tiffany Jackson, NBA Dancer- Miami
**Kelli Russell, NHL Director – Florida
**FitSource Trainer Boot Camp

NEXT is the Bay Area (West Coast) Convention – Saturday, March 12 at Crunch in Danville, CA. This is the perfect way to get ready for the San Francisco 49ers Gold Rush auditions on Sunday, March 27, 2011 and/or the Oakland Raiderettes tryouts (date TBA). The Bay Area (West Coast) workshop is perfect for dancers who are looking to join NBA teams like the Warrior Girls or Sacramento Kings Dancers too!

Participants will receive valuable information on how to perfect their look (fitness, hair, makeup, audition attire), what to expect in the interview process & how to best be prepared, as well as learn choreography & dance technique. Attendees also have the opportunity to ask questions and get answers direct from the women who’ve held the positions they seek on a Pro Team. All current, alumni and prospective professional dancers and cheerleaders are invited… And — we also welcome pro, semi-pro and college dance teams to attend and learn new choreography & tips they can take back and perform!

For my 2010 Thanksgiving Holiday I stayed in Miami and my friend Cat made the trek down from Jacksonville to spend it with me…and I whipped up a little somethin’ somethin’…nothing too fancy!

Then, I took Cat to the American Airlines Arena…

…where we watched the Miami HEAT take on the 76ers.

Then we had a Saturday “food adventure!” It started off with a ladies brunch for Dara’s (early) birthday at Balans in Brickell!!

We of course had to bring the bday girl cupcakes for the special occassion!

Now, I have to bust Cat out because she wanted to order TWO DOZEN for the 5 of us…I know Mischa’s cupcakes are YUMMY, but please, practice restraint!! lol

After brunch we gathered around the Christmas tree for a photo… notice we all have open-toed shoes to get in the “holiday” spirit! ONLY IN MIAMI!
(l-r) that’s Kimi, Rene, Dara, me and Cat

And somehow Me, Kimi and Cat kept the “eating party going because we met up with our friend Phil and stuffed ourselves a little more!

We headed back to Brickell and Sushi Siam, where it started with some Sake…


and this deep-fried banana dessert with a “chocolate fence” … πŸ™‚

Moral of the weekend..I am ever SO THANKFUL for great friends and good food!!

P.S. Cat and I ended the weekend with a Sunday brunch too before she drove back north..but we did not document that food!
