3 PHOTOS IN PHILA INQUIRER – LISA PAGE Q102; LAUREN GRAHAM AND JEFF DANIELS ON THE SET OF THEIR NEW MOVIE FILMING IN PHILADELPHIA Published 3/30/08

Sure I’m exhausted and sick this week, but hey I have had results for the fruits of my labor. In INQlings this week, Michael Klein comes through with great entertainment stories and news about movies being film in Philadelphia, including the Lauren Graham / Jeff Daniels movie, the Luke Wilson, Owen Wilson, Jennifer Aniston Movie, and the Transformer movie, really they are all going to be filmed in Philadelphia. Also information on an appearance by Julie Andrews. So check out this link and read about Phillywood events. Some of you may recall I covered the South Moon Under event on the blog last week, and as with a lot of potential published photographs I sometimes hold one back, I don’t even think I mention Lisa Paige or Nicole at the event, and I know I didn’t include this photo in the bunch. I love Lisa’s reaction in this shot.

THURSDAY NIGHT EVENTS – Chef News, Chelsea Clinton Visits Philadelphia for Photos, A Movie Wrap Party and Mary Patel Electile Dysfunction Announcement

Tonight reminded me of many of those nights I’ve spent in NYC chasing celebrities all over the island at the different events. I am just going to touch on most of them and write more about them next week. First I attended an event at Brasiere Pierre. Here is Chef Dan Marcantuno, who I just wrote about winning the WMGK “Golden Spoon Award” earlier this week; and Carrie Nork of one my favorite PR Firms, Cashman & Assocs. They had a special kick off. Then it was quickly to North Philly and the latino restaurant Cobre and a stop on the Chelsea Clinton Q&A tour for her mother Hillary. Hello never knew you can’t get a cab going North on Broad Street. Next time tokens for me, but when I finally arrived I was greeted by a cheering crowd of Hillary supporters.

There were lots of Hillary fans waiting for Chelsea Clinton. Well except for the guy you can’t see sitting on the step behind this women, waving the Ernesto ‘Che’ Guevara flag and playing the propoganda on his boom box. Chelsea arrives and she is much more beautiful then I remember. This time as opposed to 2 years ago, she is all smiles for my camera.
It was crowded inside, and I made the mistake of thinking I could get good shots from the 2nd level dining area
nah not even with my long lens
One by one as it got hot and uncomfortable, the press began to thin out and I was able to get a better shot. Then it was 8:15 and I was late for the third event of the night which had begun at 6PM and scheduled to end at 9PM

At RAE there was a wrap party for a film that tells an important story of Philadelphia that happened long ago, but still rears it’s ugly head in the news today, er yesterday. I will write more about this event next week. Speaking of films, Mary Patel was there too (Rae’s Chef Daniel Stern to her right)
Mary has a film in the film festival “Electile Dysfunction” and it’s on April 9 at 7:00PM.
It’s about politicians, the political system and it’s more relevant today than ever.

LAUREN GRAHAM IN PHILLY FILMING THE DREAM OF THE ROMANS

image I found a website with a few photos I took the other day. I think when entertainment news sites buy your entertainment photos for their sites, Anna Wintour should count that as being published and credential me for the Met Gala in May. They really are news sites and part of the media, don’t you think? Hmm this should probably be posted on my Confessions of a Paparazzi site?
