Interview: Broadway's Christian Borle Helps Makes Indie Film "Shutterflies" a Smash Hit


Tony-Award Winner Christian Borle in Shutterflies
It says a lot about an actor who would do a film for unknowns, let alone kids.

But Christian Borle helped out a friend of his he met on the set of  NBC's Smash, Jeff Muhlstock, whose 17-year old son was making a movie with another 17-year-old, without hesitation.

“I saw the script and I loved it”, Christian said.  "It was mini Quentin Tarantino-ish.”. But he added, “Jeff, and I have a great relationship. I would have done it anyway."

JerseyGirl RHONJ Teresa Giudice Talks Jersey Shore      
                              by Suzanne Ordas Curry

There are some things that bind us to each other, that create our common culture. Given that we are one big nation, yet a composite of many states, our common culture varies from one part of the country to another. In New Jersey, and I believe some neighboring states, one thing that binds us together is the place where most of us have some of the fondest memories of our lives, the enduring Jersey Shore.




Interview: Marc John Jefferies- Under the Radar Yet All Over TV and Film

Marc John Jefferies may not be a household name, but he's most likely been in your home on many an occasion.

When he was a very young boy he was a cast member of the illustrious and ground-breaking Cosby Show.  He's also been on such hit NBC shows as The Tracy Morgan Show, ER, Law and Order SVU, HBO's Treme and several others.

He's also done many voice-overs for TV and film. He's been in #Finding NemoMonster's Inc, Bill Cosby's Fatherhood, Justice League, Dexter and others. His movie appearances include Haunted Mansion (in which he played Eddie Murphy's son), Notorious,  Get Rich or Die Tryin', Spider Man 2 and Stuart Little. In a movie that also starred Halle Berry, Jessica Lange, Cuba Gooding Jr. and Samuel L. Jackson Marc played the adorable and fought-over Isaiah in Losing Isaiah. 

Marc was nominated for 2 Young Artist Awards, one in 2002 for Best Performance in a TV Drama Series - guest starring Young Actor in The Practice (1997) and one in 2004 for Best Performance in a Feature Fill - Supporting Young Actor for The Haunted Mansion (2003.

I had the pleasure of meeting Marc at Jersey City Fashion Week, where he was lending his star power for a good cause. This 23- year old has worked with some of the greats in showbiz, so I just had to ask him what it was like to work with icons like  like Bill Cosby, Eddie Murphy, and Ellen DeGeneres, just a few on his list.

Very humbly, Marc first looked thoughtful as he realized the opportunities he had already had in his young life. He said "Well, it doesn't phase me because I grew up working with them." Then he added "Bill Cosby is like a dad. He is quiet and fatherly. He commands respect but he is sweet. I learned a lot from him." He said how Eddie Murphy was a great guy and role model and how "Eddie Murphy's son is like my best friend." Of #Ellen Degeneres, he said, "She's very funny and sweet and she is constantly telling a lot of jokes".

Marc also has done a lot of voice overs as a child actor and even up until this day. He said he liked doing them but "They are a little difficult because they show you is a storyboard so the creativity has to come through."

This Bronx actor's career is successfully transitioning into adulthood. At the age of 23, he just wrapped up filming a role in Brother Love, a movie executive-produced by Queen Latifah. Others in the film include Keke Palmer, Cory Hardict, Romeo Miller, Jay Lewis, Logan Browning, Malik Yoba and Faison Love. He also had a role in the recently-aired Cartoon Network movie entitled The Contest. It is a just had a movie that aired on Cartoon Network earlier this month called The Contest. This movie explores bullying. According to Stuart Snyder, President and COO of Cartoon Network, it is "their latest effort to help inspire more open discussion between kids, parents and educators about the issue of bullying." Visit the movie on facebook at https://www.facebook.com/ContestMovie

Marc is also going behind the scenes and producing his own show, called South Brooklyn. The cast is not set yet but come back to SuzeeBehindtheScenes for updated information!

Aside from all of this Marc's biggest and most sincere project is what he is doing back in his own community. He has started his own acting school, to train and mentor kids that want to take a stab at show business.

Interview: RHONJ Linda Speaks - You Gotta Shake Things Up!

                                       

Tips from the Gym...

In the RHONJ episode airing June 16th Teresa's friend Linda, who we had never heard from on the show, was at the gym that Teresa and Linda always worked out at and in popped Jaqueline, Melissa and Kathy who apparently had never been to that gym.  

Linda was dumbfounded. She immediately let Teresa know. And then the drama started. Read:
