The Andy Cohen Diaries: A Deep Look at a Shallow Year


Andy Cohen Comes to Bookends in Ridgewood, NJ

A special shout out to COFFEETAWKNJ from the Watch What Happens Live Host himself, Andy Cohen!

He gets the Mazel of the Day from us for being such a stand-up act in the media and entertainment industry!  
A true self-proclaimed Pop Culture Expert, I see Andy Cohen as a genius. We share a love for all things entertainment, but he has separated himself completely by not just being a lover a pop culture but a creator of it. 

The Real Housewives franchise has changed the game for the Bravo Network and the heavy-hitter names that appear along side his chair in the clubhouse seem to be a who's who of Hollywood elite!

And now comes along his second book, bound to follow in his very own New York Times Best Selling footsteps, 
The Andy Cohen Diaries: A Deep Look at a Shallow Year. 
A satire in it's own right, the book is inspired by his very own iconic muse, Andy Warhol. 
When I had my moment with him, I shared my love for the industry and couldn't help but boast about my very own celebrity encounters and passion for writing that lead to COFFEETAWKNJ! 

I don't know how, but I have gotten myself into some crazy adventures with some Celebrities from every list of the alphabet!
(See other Posts) :P

As long as we live, we will live and breath pop culture!

I couldn't resist but drown myself in the moment and brief him on all I have been working towards!

 After all, I can relate to everything he built... just wandering around in my twenties trying to figure out how to make it happen, till one day I just started doing what I love and writing about what I know. 
It has not been easy still to this day and I often wonder if it is worth it or if it will ever really pay off. 
Andy Cohen is the epitome of finding one's path to success while still maintaining integrity and passion for what you love! 

He actually loved pop culture so much, he created his own instead of following the bouncing ball! 
I am so enamored with that idea. 

Thank you Andy Cohen for writing this book, for opening doors and providing opportunities, letting light shine through the crack, and being my Andy Warhol Diaries<3

P.s. If you ever read this, a dream/top of my bucket list is to one day be a bartender on What What Happens Live if not in the chair next to you for some other reason...Figure you could probably pull some strings. lol Just saying!

Must Read: 

“After reading this funny, intimate, candid, honest diary of a year in Andy's life, I couldn't help but wonder, "Is Andy Cohen...Carrie Bradshaw?” —Sarah Jessica Parker

I'm So Basic, You Already Know

"So if you're from Africa...why are you white?"
"Omg, Karen! You can't just go around asking people why they are white..."
Case in point, Mean Girls is my diary. I'm so basic sometimes, I can't stand it.

But oh well! I am here to address not only the Top 5 Reasons that make me the Most Basic White Girl ever, but also, my defense as I have a right to defend my peoples.

This is not a foreign idea that people have been criticizing one another for being "basic", in other words, typical, not unique in any way. Why do we feel the need to always single out the ladies? Are we the only ones who seem to follow these basic trends or standards?
Men, I am pretty sure you all dress in the same uniform when socializing out in public too. You all own a pair of basketball shorts, a button down, boat shoes, a Hanes T-shirt, one nice suit, and depending on the occasion, just rotate throughout. You drink Gatorades and energy drinks like we order lattes. You all rock tribal tattoos and are not part of any tribe, unless it is the tribe of "Basic White Dude". So why have only the ladies been getting called out non-stop on social media this Fall season?

Top 5

1)Is it because I love the flavor Pumpkin Spice?
Perhaps, if we offered this delightful option all year round we would not be so excited this time every year. It is like the lady version of the McRib. A marketing tool that prompts us to promote this seasonal treat like it's going out of style. Probably because it is. We maybe have one good month left if we are lucky before everything turns peppermint. Gag me with a spoon. I need coffee to run my life efficiently. I apologize that the blend of nutmeg, cinnamon swirl, and pumpkin is such a desirable combination.

2)Is it because I drive a Honda Civic?
Well this is just financially the most practical. It is great on gas, good on mileage, and curvy & compact enough to still make me feel cute while I sip my pumpkin spice and take selfies while I drive. I should not even have to defend this one. By the way, just kidding about the selfie thing, I wait till I'm parked.

3)Is it because I wear UGs?
Although we can't blame Aussie's on this trend forever. They are simply comfortable and cozy. It is freezing here on the East Coast! What else am I suppose to wear to trench around? As I get older the idea of heels and boots give me anxiety. Most, typically only have a 4 hour time limit on them anyway. Any longer of a hustle requires my reliable fleece-lined, sheep skin cushions so I can feel like I am walking on a cloud all day long. I can't speak for the ladies of Cali that perpetuate this trend, but leave us East Coasters alone. They go with everything...

4)Is it because I own Yoga Pants?
Gentlemen, would you prefer us to rock big, baggy sweats to the gym? Women get more attention in their yoga pants without having to do any physical activity. For Example: Yoga.

Yes, sometimes we can pass them off as leggings but that's because they give every girl a face lift on her backside. Plus, there is an elastic band...I could pack on my winter hibernation weight and not even notice it. Duh!

5) Is it because I "Omg! Literally, Can't Even"?
Maybe if people stopped doing the most absolutely ridiculous things I would be able to handle more and break down my thoughts in a more intellectual manner. With social media, viral videos, and the world in general, I am constantly being exposed to crazy stories non-stop and instantaneously. My brain can only take in so much info before it feels like squirrels running around in my head. My mind would be able to process more if I was exposed to less extremities all of the time. Then perhaps once I gather my thought bubbles, I could come up with a better response to everything that comes my way.

Honorable Mentions that Didn't Quite Make the Cut:

* Hair in a Sock Bun
You do your long locks everyday and see how much time you have left over for what actually needs to be done.
That's all I have to say about that one. 

*Girly Tattoos
They just make me feel like a mix of emotions. Bad-ass for having a tat, yet feminine enough to pretend like it has some deep meaning to my life.

I may be guilty of every one of these things, along with the rest of us, but I am only human, a basic human.

Vinny Guadagnino Heads Back To The Shore

Who knew Vinny Guadagnino could do more than just fist pump down the shore?

Vinny is turning into a bit of a renaissance man as he is perfecting his credibility and poking fun at his humble start on breakout MTV reality show Jersey Shore

While many of his cast mates have moved on to bigger and better, some have fizzled, others make headlines, he is taking his next steps seriously to establish an identity in the entertainment industry.

From best selling author of Control The Crazy, to a short stint interviewing celebrities on The Show With Vinny, his improv classes with the well-known Upright Citizens Brigade have lead him to the live stage performing stand-up down the shore where it all began. 

I not only caught the show and a glimpse into his great potential if he chooses to embrace the comedy bug full throttle, but I was also able to sit down one on one with him to discuss this seemingly out of the blue venture. 

"It only seems to be random for other people because they have no idea I have been doing improv for about 5 years now. I absolutely love it. I take acting classes and scene study and I'm just now getting myself out there" says Vinny.

When I played catch up with Vinny on what he has been up to and why he has turned to comedy, I was not only intrigued by his choices but humbled by his responses. 
He really seemed to have a solid understanding and appreciation for his current notoriety. 

Vinny opened up about the last couple years and what his main focus has been...

"Honestly, right now I am just trying to educate myself in every facet of entertainment. Being on a hit TV show has def. blessed me with a lot of opportunities that I would not have gotten. But when I walk in, I want to have the credentials to back it up and feel like I have earned it."  
Jessica: Well, I'm not just tootin' your horn here, but I must say, your a funny guy. I follow stand up and I was really curious when I saw you were a part of this show. What kind of reactions have you been getting?

Vinny: Since no one really knew how involved I have been with improv, people are def. shocked at first! They either make a joke of it, make fun of the Jersey Shore, and/or question my capabilities. Trick is I try and address those issues in the beginning and not take myself to seriously. Then on the other hand you have people that really do expect a lot from me. When I hit the stage they want me to live up to some Louis CK standard. But the man has been perfecting this for 40 years. I have been on stage maybe 20 times so far. Trust me I know what I am up against. I also know how lucky I am. I get paid to play pretend and entertain!

 Vinny Guadagnino hosted alongside Uncle Vinnie's regulars Ryan Maher, Liz Russo, and Anthony Didomenico. Everyone was absolutely hysterical and the perfect way to end my week with some uncontrollable laughter- ME

The Woman Behind a Celebrity Smile, Dr. Jacquie Smiles

As creator of CoffeeTawkNJ, I am in front of the camera often, as well as in front of heavy hitters in the entertainment industry and media. I know how important it is to have a smile that shines!
Plus, the name has multiple meanings on top of everything else, I am an avid coffee drinker.
FYI, coffee stains teeth! Help me.

I was really interested in finding out more about Dr. Jacquie Smiles when I caught wind of her practice and her long list of celebrity clients including Maxim Chmerkovsky, Ray Romano, Lindsay Lohan, and ummm hello, John Legend!
From Broadway spotlights, red carpets flashes, and stadium lights, Jacquie Smiles is responsible for many of the smiles we fall for!

Recently, I had the pleasure of sitting down with Jacqueline Fulop- Gooding, D.M.D., P.C, health and wellness guru to the stars and an overachieving woman of Manhattan, to speak about her experience and what lead her to being one of the top players in the field of predominantly men.
From when she was young she was always “attracted to smiles”, she says.

“Anything I could do to make someone smile, I wanted to be a part of it. It just made me happy. What better way to be around smiles all the time then to do what I do!”

Dr. Jacquie Smiles completed her DMD degree & orthodontic residency at Boston University. Following her graduation, she became the 1st Female & Youngest Director of B.U.’s Predoctoral Orthodontic Department.
Dr. Jacquie Smiles was invited to join Invisalign’s Prestigious Faculty Department built of just 24 experts from a total of 55,000 practicing dentists and orthodontists.
Let’s just think about how major that is for a second before I continue…
As a member of The National Speaker’s Bureau, she has lectured around the globe teaching over 14,000 doctors, students, and their teams in numerous areas of orthodontics to follow her lead.
Dr. Jacquie was in the first group of orthodontists ever certified with Invisalign. The honor of being an Invisalign Super Elite Provider is reserved for only the top 1% of doctors in North America.
When the Invisalign Teen Campaign launched in 2009 on the Tyra Bank’s Show, Jacquie Smiles was the Spokesperson bringing her a lot of accolade and notoriety.
Other Specialty Services Offerred:

She maybe the face of Invisalign, but that is not her only main focus. 
Although high profile professionals have sought out her expertise for years, she truly enjoys connecting her passion for making people smile by marrying the idea of offering credible medicinal services with a spa-like environment.

Dr. Jacquie had a vision for Just Melt. 
To eliminate the intimidation of procedure and cost that seemed to be preventing people from achieving their best possible self.

Shown below is a new trend in non-invasive weight loss treatments called Coolscultping.

Other services JustMelt provides includes:

After chatting briefly with Dr. J 
(We got comfy pretty quick! LOL), 
 I really look forward to finding out more information about each of her specialty services and which ones may be right for me. 
Whether it is my smile, my skin, or my overall health and wellness, I see there is a solution out there for me. 
Dr. J. will help me stay self confident and glow as I bounce from event to event! Thanks Dr. J <3
