Mario Lopez signs Fitness book at Borders. Fails to prove those 6 pick abs on the cover are *really* his!


Ok,we tried. Like 17 times in the time he spent signing away copies of “The Mario Lopez Workout” at Borders Books on State Street but he just wasn't going to bite...

Mario Lopez failed to prove that the photo on the book cover(see photo above) is not really the work of a skilled Photoshop virtual plastic surgeon!

So,we'll just have to use our wicked imaginations and have faith that,yes this book does deliver all it promises and the cover is all Mario!

Sarah Siddons Society honors Kathleen Turner


Actress Kathleen Turner was honored by the Sarah Siddons Society at it's annual gala,this year held at the Ritz-Carlton at Water Tower Place.

The queen of the sexy/sultry voice was bestowed with the 'Chicago's Actor of the Year Award for her performance in "Who's Afraid of Virginia Wolf ?"

Chicago Sun-Times columnist and WBBM-TV entertainment reporter Bill Zwecker was the emcee for the evening and he's one of the few veteran media peeps I know that still pours enthusiasm into his work. He probably has a walk-in closet of tuxedos for all the red carpet events he's covered.
Ditto for Skyline columnist Ann Gerber. Two amazing peeps!


A few minutes after I arrived Ms. Turner introduced herself...like she needs an introduction..and asked me who I was shooting for. She then began to tell me that she had two rules for photographers. The first was,"Do not take pictures when I am eating." WIsh I would have recorded that. It would have made a nice message on my voicemail!
I never got the second "rule" as she got pulled away for the meet and greet with the guests. Sooo,I guess that absolves me from any wrongdoing from here on !

"Frasier" tv show dad John Mahoney was scheduled to attend but did not arrive during the short time I was there.
