A night on the town with "Independence Day" prez Bill Pullman.

A night on the town with "Independence Day" prez Bill Pullman.

You gotta hand it to Robin Milling. In her quest to capture the most compelling performers on tape, she burns the candle at both ends—as evidenced by this series of snaps she just passed on to us.

As host of Milling About, which launched in October 2009 here on BlogTalkRadio, the New York-based veteran entertainment journalist has interviewed a who’s who of the Tinseltown and Big Apple entertainment scenes.

Just to name a Continue reading

Oh, Snaps! Lisa Johnson Mandell Joins Janet Powers as Co-Host of ‘Work It Girl’

Lisa: New, improved—and employed!

Lisa: New, improved—and employed!

We don’t impress easily, so believe us when we say Lisa Johnson Mandell‘s networking prowess is something the likes of which has rarely been seen at BlogTalkRadio.

As an L.A.-based entertainment journalist and film critic, Lisa spent 25 year rubbing elbows with such powerhouses as Steven Spielberg, Clint Eastwood and Ben Stiller.

But in her late 40s, while searching for work, she—as she puts it herself—”found that the precious few jobs available were going to the young, nubile and unskilled.”

“So I started a personal campaign to give myself a career makeover,” she says.

“I ‘Botoxed’ my resume, rejuvenated my image and Continue reading

"Success is there for the taking," Wayne (above) tells us. "But don't wait for someone to hand it to you. Go get it!"

"Success is there for the taking," says Wayne (above). "But don't wait for someone to hand it to you. Go get it!"

While it’s impossible to know everything that goes on here at BlogTalkRadio—what with our more than 1,000 hours of programming each day—it seems safe to say that this item takes the, ah, cake for year’s most memorable.

Last week, host Vincent Schilling welcomed Wayne Newton for a live, hour-long broadcast celebrating the incomparable entertainer’s 68th birthday.

As part of the festivities, the Danke Schoen crooner was treated to surprise greetings from such VIP pals as country music star Toby Keith, Dancing with the StarsKym Johnson and General Tommy Franks.

Then came a string of voices from Wayne’s past that Continue reading

Frank...

Eh, Cumpare! Annie cozies up to Frank as hubby Burl looks on.

So who did Frank and his fellow goodfellas invite to swig Chianti and scarf antipasto with them post-private screening?

None other than our own Burl and Annie Gregory, hosts of the ever-popular Annie & Burl Live!

In addition to Frank, Annie and Burl rubbed elbows—and exchanged cheek pinches —with Continue reading

Oh, Snaps! NaVell Lee Does Red-Carpet Duty at Daytime Emmys

If you want a slew of terrific celebrity interviews, as NaVell Lee knows, don’t wait for Moses to come to the mountain, bring the mountain to Moses.

And so, mic in hand, our Buzzworthy Radio host—and daytime-drama guru—did just that on Aug. 30 at the 36th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards in Los Angeles.

Among the A-listers the dapper NaVell chatted with along the Orpheum Theater’s red carpet were:

Cameron Mathison (Ryan Lavery on All My Children), Colleen Zenk Pinter (Barbara Ryan on As The World Turns), and Daniel Goddard, Christel Khalil and Emily O’Brien (Cane Ashby, Lily Winters and Jana Hawkes Fisher on The Young and the Restless).

Oh, Snaps! Olivia ‘Rules’ with Tears for Fears Pose

If Fruit Salad hosts Pauly and Marky are our undisputed Snaps! champs, Olivia Wilder is quickly coming up the rear.

In recent months, the Olivia Wilder Times host has buddied up to Titanic star Billy Zane and Chelsea Lately host Chelsea Handler.

CAPTION: "He came right up to me and gave me a big bear hug," Olivia (l) says of Curt (r).

"He came right up to me and gave me a big bear hug," Olivia (l) says of Curt (r).

And last week, at the Tears for Fears concert in Saratoga, Calif., she got cozy with frontman Curt Smith (who, incidentally, had appeared on her show one month earlier).

“He’s such a warm, friendly and genuinely nice guy,” Olivia tells us of the British rocker, best known for his 1985 hit Everybody Wants to Rule the World. “It was a great concert and wonderful time.”
