CASTING in DC: Kitchen Nightmares

A college girl has gotta eat, so when I take my hard earned cash to spend on a well anticipated meal at a restaurant I expect some quality cuisine! Although Washington DC has an array of  prestigious and eclectic restaurants with a reputation for their quality of food, service and interior design, others simply fall short.

Good news – ‘ KITCHEN NIGHTMARES ‘ is casting in DC and the producers are on the hunt for some food establishments that could use a little  bit of guidance from Chef Gordon Ramsay. This is your chance to make a struggling restaurant become successful!

For more details on the casting click HERE!

OMG 4/2/10: Kerry Reichs book & baby, Palamir Night Live

Watch: This story on WUSA-TV Morning Show

WASHINGTON, DC (WUSA)– Oh My GOFF! Angie Goff reports on Kerry Reichs’ new book ‘Leaving Unknown’, ‘Palantir Night Live’ brings government 2.0 leaders together and Metromix’s Best of DC award Winners Party. New movies out this weekend include ‘Clash of the Titans’, ‘The Greatest’ and Tyler Perry’s sequel to ‘Why Did I Get Married’.

Kerry Reichs Writes Again + BIG Kicker

Her mother Kathy’s novels inspired the hit TV showBones so it’s no suprise that Kerry Reichs has some great writing  genes. We caught up with the novelist as she signed copies of her latest book called ‘Leaving Unknown‘ at Gazuza Lounge in NW.

The author who spent the summer in China says parts of  her own life can be seen in the book about a girl finding her true self after gettin’ stuck in the middle of nowhere. (insert self here: Kerry you must’ve known I spent two years as a roving reporter lost in I-OH-WA)

The night’s kicker: 2 books down make room for baby. Reichs reveals she’s expecting a boy this summer.

DC Newsladies Dish at Lunch

Pamela Brown, Angie Goff, Lindsay Czarniak, Sue Palka

Contrary to competition belief… us news gals from different stations really do get along. So much so that we frequently meet for a girls lunch out. Today  the fab Colleen Evans invited us to the Westend Bistro in Georgetown. The menu was delightful and the white and purple cauliflower to die for. In the end it was the mini macaroons that stole my heart– and FOX5’s Laura Evans who stole the show. She JUST had a baby boy and still came out to show the love and LOOKED AMAZING! Congrats Laura!

So what do we talk about? Well, us morn gals moan and groan about our hours but then offer our condolences when the primaries like Lesli Foster, Anita Brikman and Shawn Yancy have to dip outta lunch early to prep for their show. Lindsay and I dished about the Olympics and Fashion Week… while we all gave our roundtable YES vote for Pamela Brown’s new hue for her do!

PS:  Chef Joe Palma is so down to earth and is all about having fun with his American fare! Westend Bistro is located in the Ritz-Carlton at 1190 22nd Street NW DC.

PSS: Get ready DC… the babes are already talking Newsbabes Bash for Breast Cancer #2! Stay tuned, details on the pink flair affair to come. Follow the latest from all of us on Twitter @DCnewsbabes

Jersey shoooore is CLEAN!

Sanitary Door Opener

From armpit of America to getting a leg up in the clean competition… New Jersey I gotta say I’m impressed. Upon leaving the ladies room at a cute little cafe’ in Hoboken we were happy to find… we had options. Giovanna and I found pride in our oustanding personal hygiene.

OMG is OCD

 

OMG 2/4/10: Beckham Blasts DC 'Idol' Hopeful

Austin Bisnow, FOX

OMG on WUSA9 on February 4, 2010

DC Native Austin Bisnow gets far in American Idol but then goes before the judges see what they have to say. Also, SVELTE TV takes us behind the scenes of Washington Life’s “Young and the Guest List” photo shoot. Nationally, romance rumors for Taylor Swift and John Mayer.. and why Conan might not have such an easy hop to FOX.

Oh Snap! Burgers & Why I need Boys II Men

It’s so hard to say goodbye to yesterday…especially when it involves bidding farewell to a great co-worker. I know I’m suppose to be happy for my friend Kevin Goryl after landing a great gig directing the promotions/creative services for a Cincinnati News station, but I HATE he’s leaving.  So from Chadwick’s, round of applause please for baking sensation Suzie Giampetroni for whippin’ up this creative cake- a boob tube to take us back as we officially send our Kevin off to Ohio!

Good Luck Kev!
