Wyatt Dickerson Recalls a Meal With Marilyn Monroe

March 6, 2010

Wyatt Dickerson waxed nostalgic about his years living in the Hollywood scene during The Countdown to the Oscars party at Georgetown Court last night.

As guests indulged in popcorn and cupcakes while watching previous Oscar winners on multiple screens Thursday evening, Dickerson recalled meeting a young Marilyn Monroe on the beach in Santa Monica, Calif., and inviting her out to a meal.

"She was young, I was only 20 and she was younger than I," Dickerson said last night. "I invited her out to Neenies Weenies where we had two hotdogs then gave her a ride home to a boarding house."

Not out of her league

March 2, 2010

Angie Goff is the entertainment and traffic anchor for WUSA-TV 9 and author of the highly popular  blog “Oh My Goff”.   Last week she hosted the Washington screening of “She’s Out of My League” at AMC Loews Georgetown Theater before it hits screens nationwide on March 12th.

Cast members Krysten Ritter of “Confessions of a Shopaholic” and Alice Eve of “Sex and the City 2”  joined Goff who was partially responsible for the heavy turn out by posting the whereabouts of the stars while in town on her blog.

 “To find out where and when you can meet the starlets you have to “Become a Fan“  of their film or Curbside Cupcakes on Facebook,” she advised.

“Tomorrow Curbside Cupcakes goes "Hollywood!" Movie stars will be giving out 100 free cupcakes tomorrow at #GWU near Gelman,”  We’ve never understood the cupcake craze, but it had all the right elements for publicity which was not lost on promoters.

Others piggybacking on the movie’s theme included radio personality Marilyn Thompson who blogs about beauty, health and fitness on Beautyindc.com.
 
“The movie is about a five (guy) who manages to date a ten so we are here with beauty deals so they can get a makeover.,” said Thompson.  We also have WJFK’s movie reviewer Kevin McCarthy as well as representatives from lots of spas and salons who are giving out hot beauty deals.”

Goff, a beauty in her own right, doesn’t consider herself a 10 nor has she ever dated a 5. “I don’t know what you consider a 5,” she said.  For someone that gets to the studio at 3:30 AM, we’re surprised she even dates at all.

Mark Russell Skewers Both Sides at Ford's

February 22, 2010

Before Jon Stewart and Steven Colbert, there was Mark Russell, who returned to Ford’s Theatre last week with One Man. One Piano. One Nation. Indivisible. Known for skewering Republicans and Democrats alike, Russell can make both sides laugh at themselves. Could be useful at this week's "bipartisan health care summit" hosted by President Obama. The Republicans still haven't confirmed they'll even show up.
