Michael Jackson, the AMA's and why a horse has me seeing gray...

I have so many things to talk to you guys about! So much has happened in the past month and I have SOOOOO been wanting to know what you thought about it. So, here we go...

I saw the Michael Jackson “This Is It” Documentary! This is going to be a really short review because I have no words...All I know to say is AMAZING! Michael has always been a genius and somehow they got it on tape! WOW!
*Have you seen it? What did you think? Do you have more words than I do?

I’ve become addicted to Zumba! Not sure what it is??? It’s the most wonderful Latin/hip-hop aerobics class that makes me happy! Not sure if I’ve shared this with you guys, but I have always wanted to be a dancer. So, this allows me to dance my heart out,’s an amazing workout! I think I might audition for So You Think You Can Dance next season. I’m kidding!!!!! (Kinda)
*Is now a good time to say Ellenore and Russell are amazing on that show?!

I had my ‘official’ New York debut at the amazing Feinstein’s! DUDE! What an honor!!! I seriously had the best time. It was my first time doing a full cabaret show and I don’t know how I could have had more fun. It might help that I’m a bit dramatic. :-) A HUGE thank you to all who came and all who sent well wishes. Please continue to support wonderful places like Feinstein’s...great room, great shows, great staff and even great food!
*Will you come next time I play there???

I watched the AMA’s. Hmmm....I had a hard time with it this year. I really respected the arists that just got up there and just sang their songs even though the theme of the show seemed to be HUGE production numbers. There is absolutely nothing wrong with the huge numbers. One of the artist that I think does both amazingly well is Beyonce'. I mean, she’s all over the place AND singing her tail off. Love it! However, she wasn’t performing on the AMA’s. :-) So, my favorites were Kelly Clarkson, Mary J. Blige and Whitney Houston! Now Adam Lambert...I love what he said on Ellen. “That may not have been the best first (second) impression to give America.” Then he promptly followed that statement by singing his tail off. :-)
*I’m so curious to know what your thoughts are!!!

I also saw “The Blind Side”. If you haven’t seen it, please go! It’s such a heartwarming and powerful story. The best part is that it’s true. I’ve always been a huge fan of adoption and this movie solidified that for me! I don’t want to say too much more, just go see it. Speaking of adoption, some of you are asking what happened to the puppy I fell in love with in NY. Let me just say, I could not see paying all that for a dog when there are so many wonderful puppies waiting to be adopted. That’s my next goal and I’ll definitely keep you posted!
*Have you seen “The Blind Side”? Do you have an adoption story?

Last story: I went horseback riding because I absolutely love it and it is one of the few things that completely relaxes me. I rode the sweet, yet fearless horse named Homeboy. There, however, is one issue I have with horses. I have no fear of them, so I tend to always be standing in their way or behind them or something. I don’t normally notice until someone says something or the horse lets me know. To make a long story short, I’ll just say there was a treat situation and a horse ended up going up in the air and landing on my foot. No worries, nothing is broken. However, I am still recuperating. So, here is my disclaimer: If you see me in my gray (is it “gray” or “grey”?) UGG boots, it’s because those shoes are the only ones that don’t hurt right now. I’m so tired of wearing Gray (grey)! It’s already been 4 weeks, so I’m hoping this is over very soon. I do, however, change shoes for my shows (no pain, no gain), but my UGGs are never far... :-)

I think that pretty much fills you in on me, can’t wait to hear what you guys think on some of these!
Love you!!!
