Our friend Daniel DiCriscio recently bumped into Nancy Grace in Hollywood.

Well, when you think of Nancy Grace many words come to mind like: “She is…” – acerbic, abrasive, opinionated, harsh, heartless, smart, educated, sharp, controversial, to the point, tough, and the list goes on, and oh, the B word, too, let’s not forget that word..the one that rhymes with witch, LOL!

Well, I, like many fans of Nancy Grace’s HLN show, I too am one! I was intriqued by her, shall we say, “candor” on her show and in your face “southern style” delivery; much like a pit bull, she grabs a hold of your private parts and won’t let go! It seems that Nancy is so driven due to her first fiancé’s murder that it made her embark on a legal career! Her journey after being in the Georgia court system to garnering national attention is quite amazing really: from Court TV to HLN to…Dancing with the Stars…there seems to be no stopping her!

My apology to Daniel for being under the weather this week but more than glad to link into the blog that picked up his article.

Last Shot with Judge Gunn

“Last Shot with Judge Gunn” is a new nationally syndicated Court TV show from 3 time Emmy Award winner and creator of “Judge Judy” and “A Current Affair” Executive Producer Peter Brennan, and 3 time Emmy Award winner and Co-Executive Producer Lisa Lew.

“I’ll search your car, I’ll search your house, I’ll test your Mother” is a sound bite that rings out loud and clear. Mary Ann Gunn, aka Judge Gunn, delivers that line with a strong southern accent that actually makes you stand up straight, sends chills up ones spine, and warms your heart all at the same time. Judge Gunn joins the list of other well know Court TV predecessors into the Courtroom/Judge TV arena, but this Arkansas native brings a whole new punch to the court room. Not only does she preside on the bench just like those other well-known TV Judges, but her crusade is to help “drug addicts” correct their lives and give them that last shot, or chance, in her courtroom. This show actually goes inside an actual working courtroom!

Methamphetamines, Cocaine, Marijuana, Oxycodone, Methadone, etc are drug names that you will hear dispersed from Judge Gunn’s lips without shame. Drug use has become a very serious problem in this country and this show is facing up and shedding some light on this issue. Mary Ann gives her very straight forward, no holds barred guidance and opinions with conviction to otherwise lost souls who have gotten lost on the drug “high”way and are recent drug offenders, facing incarcerations, and/or losing control of their lives and families, to do as she says and follow her orders, clean up their acts, and follow the help plan she has for them; hence Drug Court, and the show’s title “Last Shot with Judge Gunn”. If you are difficult in her courtroom, she will “Come down on you like Thunder!”. I find that this show will educate and bring a tear to your eye, as fast as maybe make you smile, depending on the case and its outcome.

After five successful years of changing lives in her courtroom on local TV in Arkansas, Judge Mary Ann Gunn’s new TV show “Last Shot with Judge Gunn” is now coming into your house, and your TV sets, nationally. For 13 years the dynamic Mary Ann has presided over Arkansas’ Washington County Drug Court with the greatest success story in the nation. Mary Ann Gunn is not your average judge – or average woman. She was the first ever female auto mechanic at Sears, she rides a Harley Davidson and drives a tractor, she shoots and she knits. As a single mother she proudly raised her daughter Sara Christian, also an attorney.

I found Mary Ann, and her show, to be interesting to me. Once I watched a few episodes, I couldn’t stop watching! Because I have studied law, (yeah, I know I am diverse in my interests) I was motivated by her; she piqued my interest with the subject-matter of this show, and she stole my heart!

I had the chance to interview Mary Ann Gunn and here is what she had to say:

Daniel DiCriscio (DD): What were your thoughts when you were first approached to be the Drug Court Judge?

Judge Gunn (JG): When I was first approached to be the drug court judge, I did not have any interest in doing it at all. I was much like the naysayers about this program; I didn’t have any sympathy or empathy, for anyone that committed a crime, especially a felony, or any crime. That committed any crime while on drugs or alcohol. And I didn’t want to be a part of the program. And then when I did agree to do it, temporarily only, because I was kind of shamed into. Because other people had volunteered around the community and they needed a judge. I said I would do it for a very short period of time, just because no one else would. And then I meet those first five persons that come before the court, I learned each individual story, and I learned about their addictions and I was so shocked. Then, one girl came before me, and she started using methamphetamine when she was 22 years old. She met someone in a bar, and he shot her up that night. That’s what she said; those are her words, with methamphetamines. And she said she never quit. And she was 42 when I meet her. And for 20 years she was an IV methamphetamine user. And she said that she saw that same man two years later in the same bar. And when he saw her and saw how strung out she was, those are her words, he cried. And I asked her, how it was she wanted to come to drug court? And her response was, for 20 years I have never received treatment. I could never pay for it and when I was arrested, it saved my life. And I said, how, how did you do that by yourself? And she said, I rediscovered my mother, I had completely lost my relationship with my mom. And she said, I am so thankful, that she was still alive and that she was there to help me. And when I wanted to help myself, and I said, how did you live? And she said, I was a drug runner. I was cute, I was young. And she said, my boyfriends would ask me to run drugs and I did. And she’s clean today. That was 10 years ago.

DD: You said there are “naysayers” about the program. What are your thoughts on that?

Judge Gunn (JG): “There are people who are naysayers about this program. And to them, I say, that, you don’t understand. And they don’t want to understand. Because we have an opportunity, both the participants and the team, we have an opportunity to show the country their stories. And they’re brave and they want to give back. And they want to help other drug courts; they want legislators to free up monies to pay for treatment. They know how important it is, because they’ve been on the leading edge of drug court. And we were the second drug court in the state. So we, we together the team and the participants, started a program, when the community, when we started it, the community said, “No, don’t start drug court. These people are criminals. If they did the crime they need to do the time. They need to go to prison.” And then once the community understood, and the nation understood, that drug courts were a way of helping people and that these people were worth it, and the treatment works. And all of a sudden, drug court is a very, very good thing. And actually it was a very gradual process that drug court became a very, very good program. Well accepted. And now what we want to do is bring it into the households in America, and bring it home to everyone. And if you see activity at your neighbor’s house, this is maybe what’s going on. If you have a loved one that is addicted to drugs, there’s hope. That there are programs out there that work and that they work very, very well, you don’t have to send them to treatment center after treatment center.”

DD: Will this show help the participants in your courtroom?

JG: “In order to do help, everyone has to be on board together. So this show is an outreach to the nation, to say, let’s all work together, and let’s help these people. They are our fellow Americans and they need it. And if they are willing to make the commitment, to change and to go through, the initially physical withdraws that they do, and then to work hard to get their life back, we should be supportive and help them, because they will help us back.”

DD: Does the Drug Court program really help and save lives, and incarceration isn’t always the answer?

JG: “Drug Court gives hope. It saves lives. And it is a process of help for those people who don’t have no place else to go and don’t know where to turn. And without it, your penitentiaries, the doors in will be swinging back and forth. Because they’re going to the penitentiary because they committed a crime against the dignity and peace of the state and than once they serve their time, they’re released. And they go right back to the same life they had before. And the next time they are arrested, they go back into the penitentiary, for just a little bit longer and then pretty soon they come out again. And by the time the back and forth happens 2 or 3 times, they are a habitual offender and they, their life is gone. And we have housed them, clothed them, and fed them. We have spent thousands and thousands upon hundreds of thousands of dollars on one person to keep them off the streets without any way to help them with their disease. And I am not saying, I am not saying, we should never put a criminal that has a drug related problem in the penitentiary. I’m not saying that at all. I’m saying let’s look at each person, each heartbeat and find out what their level of commitment is. And then open the door a different way. Open the door from another side. The vast majority of graduates of this program will tell you that this program saved their lives. And without the program, they would have died. And we don’t have a lot of older people in drug court. We may have a couple of participants, less than a handful over the age of 50 that have come through the program in 10 years. Because people that abuse drugs, like at this level, they don’t live. You’re right, it does save, it does save lives. And if they graduated from this program, and it did save their life, then why should we, or why should anyone say no to that? ”

DD: I heard you say before that “trust is a milestone” can you explain and tell me how you came up with that?

JG: It was her (the 42 y.o. woman from first Q/A above), she said, when I said that she rediscovered her mother. And she said that her mother loved her, always loved her but that she “trusted” her again. And that is a “milestone”. Trust is a milestone for the participants in drug court when they re-earn that trust. It means so much to them.

Stalker

Preface: This is my true account of my stalking problems and this is not to defame, or maliciously attack anyone. (Opinion piece)

It seems that “stalking” only happens to women from overzealous male admirers, but this isn’t always the case. I have had many stalking problems through the years since I have popped up on the “fame” radar. My being a man makes it seem less threatening or scary, and sometimes laughable to individuals. For what I am about to discuss/tell you is my opinion. I hope that everyone can learn from this.

Just because I am a man it seems that not everyone, except the FBI or my lawyer or a handful of people, seems to take this seriously. For women, the law is broad and they have many avenues to help them. But for men or a public figure, both in my case, it comes with the territory that men shouldn’t be afraid, etc.

When I was working with Faye Resnick during the O.J. Simpson trial, I first encountered “stalking” that was happening to her. One day when I was leaving her house through the front door and Faye gave me a hug and kiss goodbye, I was suddenly pulled back in the front door by her grabbing me by my collar and pulling me in backwards. She quickly closed the front door and warned me that there was a guy across the street in a white car, and an older man with gray hair and he had a gun pointed directly at her front door! I thought I was seeing things but this was actually happening! We looked through the side glass on the front door and quickly went upstairs and she made The Call! Whew! Talk about scary!

During the Jones v Clinton scandal I had my very first serious “Stalking” problem, not what people think of when “stalking”: not the usual angry ex’s or boyfriends or girlfriends. I was being “stalked” by a bald headed woman wearing a hooded sweatshirt over her head, who actually came onto my living premises property and I actually had the police take her away in handcuffs, not knowing that she had been following me in a hooded sweatshirt for weeks prior. I never knew this woman or have ever talked to her, etc. That was scary, and there were a few more stalkers after her, and some were men, too.

Celebrity brings out the strangest “actions” or “manipulations” by the most unassuming individuals. Funny thing is I can be seen as a threat to some people, threat being I can steal their thunder, but if someone appears unassuming, i.e. plays off being naive, overly nice or plays the victim, they get away with so much because they aren’t seen as a threat. Meanwhile they are the real threat because they are the ones who can do real harm. It’s like a beauty pageant and they are playing fake nice to be awarded Miss Congeniality, meanwhile they aren’t even really a contestant in the first place and they show up backstage trying to befriend the winner, then try to rip the crown off her head. One of my celebrity clients actually warned me because of their stalking problems to “beware of anyone syrupy sweet”, they are the ones working you for something.

Now I am having stalking problems again, this time with two women, but this comes in a whole other form. This time it has taken a turn that they “love” you or in their heads have a “love affair” going on and wanting to coattail ride their way to celebrity. Just having a conversation enforces this to them.

And Facebook (FB), ugh, is “stalker” haven and they feel they have “power” on the internet and thru FB! The reason I say that about Facebook is that these two stalkers are always on FB and watching every move and post on my wall, and everyone else’s. I had to remove these two stalkers because of the “FB spying” and/or “postings” and them “having to know” your fb friends, etc.

My current stalker, let’s call her stalker number two, even confronted me on a write-up I received in a gay magazine from the Midwest saying how she was against gays and let me have it and cried hysterically. Keep in mind once in an email she even told me, “I just don’t understand the gay thing.” It also seemed to be jealousy on her part because of the press attention. Also, I have had to change my phone number more than a few times due to the hysterically crying calls. Friends and business associates have heard her hysterical meltdowns on voice mail messages and were horrified and scared for me. I even had a Studio Exec hear some of these messages and say, “She isn’t well in the head, get away from her.” The stalkers also show up at places unexpectedly. One of them showed up at midnight on a Tuesday night at an anniversary event to “surprise” me, an event that she wasn’t even invited to! Both of these women have “red carpet” issues, let me explain; Stalker number one will do ANYTHING to get her photo on the red carpet. After one of my events stalker number two picked a fight with me asking why she didn’t have her photo taken on the red carpet, acting like she was entitled to have her picture taken. She even inappropriately referred to one of the celebrities as a “Mexican whore” and asked why she was on the red carpet and not her. She then told me the person in charge of the red carpet told her she should be having her photo taken. That prompted me to do a three way conference call with the gentleman in charge of the carpet and the stalker. On the phone he told us both that he never said any such thing to her. He commented that she had obviously been drinking and was intoxicated, and even had a drink in her hand which she was not suppose to have outside the press area. Funny she denied that she wasn’t drinking, once again, or had a drink in her hand because she did have a cocktail glass in her hand in some pics from people that attended and sent to me. He told us she had approached him asking why she wasn’t on the red carpet having her photo taken. Stalker two said to me previously that she doesn’t have any interest in showbiz or red carpets, etc. Mhmm.

Anyway, it isn’t my decision if the paparazzi takes their photos, it’s up to the paparazzi and they are only interested in Celebrities. Anyway, stalker number two was “drinking” again and when she drinks she gets volatile and will deny, deny even if people back up her bad drinking etiquette. I also often experienced a host of crazy phone calls and emails from stalker number two after she had been drinking.

Being told from one of my current stalkers, she actually said to me in a scene out of Sybil with Sally Field, “Don’t you remember when we first met?” I responded, “We? When? Where?” She then said, “Yes, we met at (name & event withheld) and when we were introduced our eyes met!” I was like “I was wearing black sunglasses!”

And they were so black I couldn’t even see my own eyes in the mirror! I myself don’t even remember meeting her. Then being told she googled me that night and went on fb and chatted some people trying to get info on me in a passive aggressive way.

I am always upfront and set the record straight when someone gets too close to me, male or female, that we are “friends” and “friends only”, by email or face to face, but this doesn’t seem to stop them. Then they keep challenging you, and mirroring (copying), a term the FBI taught me. Mirroring can last 2 to 5 years the FBI informed me, that is unbelievable! Because it isn’t “criminal” it can be used as evidence or a follow-trail.

I have had stalker number two, who sometimes works for one of the Housewives from the TV show once in a while, forwarded me the Housewives’ (acquaintance) emails from different cities and her thoughts on people which weren’t very nice, and told me about how this woman would have fist banging kitchen counter top meltdowns on the set from last season with producers because she wants to be the most famous one, and how stalker number two thought the Housewife (acquaintance) was ugly when she first met her because of her face…this is true…that’s what she said, and how gawky and big she is! Of course she would never tell her this to her, um, face because it’s all about what she can get or manipulate her to do. You would think this reality woman would know the drill better than anyone, but she for being so smart she surrounds herself with less than intelligent and beneath her people as her camp. I guess she likes the low level players so she can be the Big Mama!

I have the FBI and my lawyers handling these present stalkers. To me, this is a very strange and scary situation that I am presently in, I feel. To meet these so called stalkers at “showbiz” event settings, whether they fraudulently represented themselves or who are really wannabe star struck fans pretending to be “in the business” and using the excuse that they are there for your support, business, etc

These are two excerpts from two emails were sent by stalker number two in regards to the woman on the Housewives (acquaintance), it is so manipulating and passive aggressive, although stalker number two did email me that “acquaintance” uses the word “manipulate” a lot in her dialogue when referring to people she finds “threatening”:

“(name withheld) actually quoted the words “manipulate”.”

“But, this email in particular I wanted you to read for one reason and it’s because she is sharing how she is scared about upcoming season and asking me if anything she should be aware of? This is what I wanted you to see with your own eyes … about how {name withheld} worries a lot and does care about how people see her even though she seems very tough and uncaring at times. ”

“I remember I once brought up {business name withheld} (down the street from her office) and they have 3 huge bldgs around the area not just an office like (name withheld}, and as I was explaining how I’ve been with the company for many years as they’ve grown, she just kept shaking her head that she didn’t know them. That’s {name withheld}’s weakness because she didn’t want to hear about another business that I was working with or maybe how their company was so big, etc.”

This is just a bit of what is going on with me presently, and believe me, there is a whole lot more!

The FBI has categorized these stalkers I have recently as Love Obsessed/Delusional Stalkers (Erotomania) or “Casual Acquaintance Stalker”. I was also educated from the FBI that these stalkers “Mirror” you for 2 to 5 years after breaking contact, meaning they watch and copy you and your moves, etc.

The first “stalker”, aka stalker number one, seems to be befriending anyone I have ever known that is a celebrity or in the business since I stopped contact 2 years ago and badmouth me. At one point she even went so far as to try and meet and do business with my publicist for herself, all under false pretense of saying that she was a close, personal friend of mine, which she was/is not. And presently has a fake PR person with a fake client list, but no one cares and let’s them go because they aren’t a “threat”!

Stalker number two won’t stop emailing me since I broke contact, going on a little over 3 months now, emailing up to 3 to 5 times a day, sometimes at all hours of the night. She drinks, but won’t admit it. Now, keep in mind I didn’t have any kind of personal relationship with this woman, yet she created one in her head. And I also haven’t responded to any of her emails in months. Yet these emails she sends range from being sweet and overly familiar considering we hardly knew each other. Here are two examples:

“I don’t want to keep bugging you … because I’m sure by now you either not reading my emails or not caring what I have to say or feel. I just feel this part of me wanting to share with you so much … I miss you. I really hope you’re okay and everything is good for you. Perhaps, maybe you even may met
someone so busy with a new person in your life .”

to her turning right around and emailing me the next day the having a meltdown:

“I just want you to know that I realize more than ever … after few friends forwarded me how you recently celebrated once again a birthday with one of your celebrity friends their birthday and post on facebook!…I will no longer bother you … wish you best! “.

Once again, I never reply but the emails kept coming. I have been asked by friends repeatedly, “why don’t you just block her email?” But I’m not blocking anything, it’s called a paper trail!

These types of “stalkers” believe that there is a “relationship” with you. It’s all in their head. I don’t know how many times I have had to say the word “friend” and yet these two won’t stop. The whole thing is absurd! Funny thing is that many people will feel sorry for these two women.. and not for me, but if it were in reverse, it wouldn’t be funny at all. It’s 2011 and I feel that this somewhat “archaic” observation of “men” just isn’t right. Equal Rights? Well, definitely not here.

“Everyone thinks your gay and I’m crazy to want anything more than friendship from you … even tonight (name withheld)made a comment about how you were wooing the guys …”

I am not one to not say my sexual orientation and find her crazy banter to be disrespectful and challenging. Regarding above email comment from stalker number two, I didn’t speak to stalker number two for 3 months and I was the Celebrity Host for an opening of a nightclub and fashion show. She surprised the heck out of me showing up and I did not even speak or look at her. She then had a meltdown after I left the event and “scared” the man who wrote a story about me. He called me the next morning and couldn’t believe her uncontrollable crying and tantrum.

The harassing and threatening bipolar behaviors, which they both vehemently deny, is scary! They will start non stop crying and threatening emails and calls, then the next day email you a sweet letter about their life, and poems they write or photos! Yikes! Funny how these two stalkers think they are on my level and challenge me.

I recently reached out to an “acquaintance” of stalker number two, who is also an “acquaintance” of mine. Actually, stalker number two is more than an acquaintance to her because she employs her from time to time. I reached out because the acquaintance and I received emails that we were both named in, from an unknown person about my stalking incident. These emails were as much of a surprise to my acquaintance as they were to me, and I thought I would call her since she, I knew, responded to those emails. I know this because whoever in the hell was sending those emails also forwarded to me the response they got from my acquaintance. I never responded to those emails, why would I, I don’t know that person? The internet can be a very odd place, although, it really isn’t hard today to get info (email addresses, phone numbers, etc) because of the internet.

Well, she took my call and I thought we were going to have an adult conversation, and she could shed her intelligence or help the matter, but she wouldn’t talk to me once I said “Hello, it’s Daniel DiCriscio, can I talk to you?”, that was all I got out, and she quickly cut me off and said she was in a meeting and hung up on me! I thought in my head after she hung up on me, “In a meeting?? Then why take my call??!” I didn’t even have a chance to say anything! This woman is on one of the Housewives shows, and she of all people should know what I was about to talk to her about. Considering “stalking” happens to many people in the spotlight under the guise of sweetness, I thought that this woman was much smarter than this. I did email her back and said it was unprofessional and rude how she handled the phone call, and she emailed back and apologized, well, sort of, in her own way. I explained that this was a serious, and scary thing that was taking
place and considering we are both in the public’s eye, she could make some sense of this.

This was her email response to me after I emailed her about her about her “less than professional” phone etiquette:

Daniel,
I apologize that you did not like the way I spoke to you, but this is a place of business that you called. I do not have time, nor will I take time on dealing with {name withheld}. I received a lengthy email from a {name withheld} which was very inappropriate and I am aggravated that you feel you both need to involve me in this. I want nothing to do with any of it. This situation with you and {name withheld} is between you and {name withheld}. Please keep me out of it. I am busy running my {business name withheld} company during the day, and do not get involved with people’s business.

Please respect me and leave me out of this situation.

To me, this is a back-handed apology and disrespectful, it’s all about her and not one thing for me. And to make matters worse, this woman emailed back the unknown third party emailer with this contradictory statement regarding her relationship with stalker number two, which isn’t what stalker number two says:

“Thank you for your letter, however I am NOT close to {name withheld} and simply have used her for several occasions.”

The thing with “stalking” is that it’s a very unpleasant thing to deal with, or have to deal with. I can understand completely not wanting to be involved, etc, and I did email this to this woman but to be treated so badly and rudely is uncalled for and makes me think there is more on the other side of her story, if you get my drift.

I feel that this behavior exhibited from these women towards me is almost a battle between the sexes on their part, considering they both are divorced and are on the man-hating path. The “acquaintance” actually makes it pretty clear in her book! Anyone who knows me knows I don’t play that way at all! Also, anything you say, or your lawyer, they will lie and turn it around. My close friends have experienced all the “shenanigans” these stalkers have tried to do, all in the name for fame. Remember if I say their names, they get the fame! Everyone will be googling them and ‘Viola!’ they get what they wanted!

Everyone knows of a famous stalking case: Rebecca Schaffer, Teresa Saldana, David Letterman, Pamela Anderson, Steven Spielberg…and the list goes on. Some of these cases have end up with a deadly ending or a horrifyingly injured victim.

I always say, especially to this woman from one of the Housewives shows, “When it happens to you, you will understand the fear and understand “it” better.”

As the FBI has informed me that “Stalkers” or “stalking” is very, very common in Hollywood, especially the “Erotomania”/ “Love Obsessed/Delusional Stalker” because of Celebrity.

Stalker number one is still “Mirroring” me and is obsessed with “fame”, “coat-tail riding”, knowing and befriending everyone I know and turning them against me, and Facebook, even though they aren’t famous at all. Stalker number two, who also “mirrors” me, and seems to be getting back up help from the “acquaintance”, loves confrontation which is a one-type stalker trait. My lawyer sent her a letter via email asking her to stop harassing me and she quickly responded and took control in less than the span of 5 minutes! Scary! I was in a meeting with my lawyer and she sent me a myriad of emails, challenging me as well!! Stalker number one was sent a letter from my attorney and this stalker waited months before responding and when a response was sent it seemed to my lawyer as if it was actually the stalker writing her own letter on legal letterhead stationery. Another thing about certain stalkers is they love the confrontation, so what to do? Ignore them? That isn’t fair to me is it? They get away with misbehaving, no?

I have a zillion emails from both stalkers, but stalker number two does it in another whole way. Stalker number one doesn’t like confrontation, but stalker number two does! They both seem overly sweet, giving, caring, and can fool a lot of people as it seems, but not me! Stalker number one even offers to put you in her Will and give you lots of money or jewelry, and even offered me 150,000 dollars to marry her …I told her “No Thank You”, plus, they are great liars and fantasizers! You would be amazed at how many people believe that they are in her Will without seeing The Will! But remember, she expects something back…Showbiz! Hollyweird! She even emailed me a “confidentiality agreement” for her, to my surprise, so I would trust her and tell her my info and then said the stuff I would tell her wouldn’t go anywhere!

This is an email from Stalker number one:

“D are you friends with Chynna doll and Mary Cara? invite them if you are. Xoxox”

Chyna Doll is a a client of mine aka Joanie Laurer, and we did some animal protests at UCLA together, and Mary Carey is the porno actress from Celebrity Rehab, whom I have been seen with in photos from the press. I have been asked by this stalker for a myriad of Celebrities including Pamela Anderson to come to her fake charity parties. Yeah, right!

Facebook is another bad stalker haven. I have had to “block” these two for obvious reasons. Just because I am perceived as a nice, easy going, and personable guy does not make me a target; I feel like the girl with the short skirt who gets attacked and people say, “Oh, she asked for it”.

Also, these two present stalkers of mine are so showbiz obsessed yet deny that’s what they are doing, but the proof is in the pudding. They are always manipulating and playing the victim to get “fame” or acknowledgement. They have major entitlement issue for not doing anything! Stalker number one even had a huge meltdown because I was invited to a big movie premiere and she said she deserved to go! Even tried to get herself invited behind my back using a friend pretending to be a publicist repping her! Everyone in the business knows, it doesn’t work that way. One stalker even has a bunch of fake companies that are basically fraudulent showbiz companies that only rep herself, and she claims to have been on TMZ, yet search her name and…. nothing. The other stalker has a business that is run out of her apartment that she was told by her landlord that it isn’t legal to do that. But to read about them on the internet, you would think they are zillionaires…not the case. But because they are unassuming, they get away with it.

I have emailed and pleaded with both of them to stop harassing me and threatening me, and or challenging me…but they keep coming back with emails, etc.

I don’t see lines of people trying to be Doctors and steal their personas or career without the proper credentials, but it seems in Showbiz, people assume there aren’t any prerequisites that you have to have, so Entitlement enters! Beware!

Anyway, hopefully all of this will just go away, but it doesn’t work that way… or so I am told.

Daniel DiCriscio and Paula Jones

Paula Jones and I had an amazing “reunion” the other night after 13 years of not seeing one another, because she moved to Arkansas after Jones v Clinton was thrown out. We did keep in touch in other ways though. She sent me an email a month ago alerting me that she would be coming to LA and wanted to see me. Going back in time, you remember her, the woman who sued President William Clinton for Sexual Harassment, and of course I being the man who did her high profile makeover during her tete a tete with Clinton? We even flew together to the deposition of then President Bill Clinton and, boy, what a ride that was for me, as I am sure for her as well, too! Those scandals can change one’s life overnight, and sometimes forever!

Well, here we are present day 2011. President Obama is having a birth certificate dilemma courtesy of Mr. Donald Trump, who might be running for the upcoming presidency. I hear Rosie O’Donnell said that “The Donald” should stay on his Apprentice show and not enter the ring for President because he doesn’t support gay marriage equality, Oh My! Then you have all these tornadoes hitting parts of the Midwest and practically leveling Tuscaloosa, Alabama and killing almost 200 people; my prayers go out to the family’s who have lost loved ones.

Well, April 27, 2011, Paula and I had our long awaited and overdue “Reunion”! When we first saw one another we squealed with joy and hugged! Paula and I were friends during the scandal and remained all these years later. Paula looked just like she did back in 1998, and she said I haven’t changed a bit either! After we hugged and looked at one another, we preceded to walk, hand in hand, through the enchantingly beautiful Grove Mall, you know, the place where they film Extra!, the entertainment program hosted by Mario Lopez?

It was a summer-type evening and the weather cooled down to a comfortable temperature. At one point of our walking thru The Grove, more towards The Farmer’s Market end, and we were surrounded by paparazzi. Paula and I did “our thing” for the camera’s and then decided to have dinner at Marmalade Cafe. The paparazzi continued to shoot us while we were seated at our table. Of course TMZ was there! LOL! Tmz asked us about Donald Trump for President and Paula and I together said “4 thumbs up!”, and put our thumbs up!

During our dinner, Paula and I, and her friend from Arkansas who came with her as well, were chatting up a storm! Paula and I would laugh so hard because Paula would start laughing at me saying “Daniel, you are just like me” referring to “my vanity” when the camera’s were around. I carry a “puff” in my back pocket to keep the shine off my forehead, shiny forehead’s are not that attractive in pics, LOL! Anyway, Paula and I were discussing a “secret project” we’re are planning on doing together, but I cannot tell you what it is about, besides, she may even appear on my reality show! Shhhh!

One of the photo agencies actually placed our “Celebrity Sightings” reunion photos right next to Kate Middleton’s photo, Prince William’s Bride to be! I even chatted the paps about the upcoming Royal Wedding!

Paula really is a fun woman. She makes you feel comfortable and relaxed. There is no pretense with her. Paula and I always got along well, even back when. This reunion, we were going to “kick our heels up” and have a blast for once, considering during the scandal, we couldn’t.

At one point during dinner, I told Paula that a Dancing with the Stars contestant, Chris Jericho, that was kicked off last week had just walked by, and she was like “Daniel, Where?!” It is fun to people watch at The Grove, you never know who you will see!

After dinner, I told her let’s go to Katsuya, a famous Sushi Restaurant and Bar on Hollywood and Vine. Katsuya has a lot of famous people that go there like: The Kardashians, Rhianna, Jay Z, Eva Longoria, just to name a few. When we arrived at the valet out front of Katsuya, we got pummeled by paparazzi again! I just stood up out of the car, and Bam!, Paparazzi everywhere! And again TMZ was there! Paula and I were surrounded by videographer and paparazzi taking our pictures and asking us questions about every current topic, including our “secret project” that we both blatantly laughingly said “It’s confidential right now”. We were at Katusya to go to the bar and checkout the “cool crowd” but it seems it was us! LOL! Joking of course! Jake Pavelka and Claudia Jordan also were at Katsuya! Paula and I were seated at the bar and took in the room. I noticed a lot of people looking at us through the sides of their eyes.

We stayed a bit at Katsuya and chatted more about our “secret project” and how our lives have changed and so on. Paula and I love to laugh and joke with one another. This is why it is fun to be with her. Some people may find her offensive because of her Clinton wrangling but after knowing Paula, she is the sweetest woman.

When we decided to leave Katsuya, the paparazzi was filming us already while we were inside the bar through the glass doors and side windows. I wasn’t aware until Paula said, “Oh no Daniel, there they go again!” I quickly poofed up her hair; we started laughing and exited down the entrance steps. The paparazzi didn’t miss a beat! Paula did say something sweet about the tornadoes and sounded very caring. The paparazzi even surrounded the car and kept shooting until we pulled off. I opened my window and in a faux southern accent said to the paps, “Bye Y’all!”

It really was a wonderful evening being with my good friend, Paula!

Elizabeth Taylor

When I think of Elizabeth Taylor, I think of my Mother, let me explain; ever since I was a little kid, Liz and my Mother seemed to be living in two different worlds yet shared very similar life experiences and illness problems later in life. Sometimes the cards piled up against Liz and it seemed she wasn’t dealt a fair hand, and I could hear my mother saying, “Oh, poor Liz, I feel for her. I would love to talk with her because it seems she and I would understand each other”.

I know a lot of people feel like Liz Taylor was family to them or an inspiration; her lavish and amazing lifestyle and career were what motivated a generation. She was such a huge star that everyone feels such a strong connection to her.

You can maybe try to compare her to one of today’s new Hollywood generation crop of starlets or socialites like Paris Hilton, one of her relations, but there is no one like Liz! A lot of Hollywood’s Movie A listers claim what a huge influence she was on them and some of them may even copy her style, but to be the first of your kind is very hard to duplicate.

Beside the fact that Mom and Liz both were Pisces; they both liked lavender, they were loving and caring yet brutally honest at times, and a somewhat resemblance that in some photos was “spooky” to me… Liz would have been my Mom’s doppelganger for Face Book!

I remember Liz at a Halloween event I attended in 1998 called “Dream Halloween Children Affected by AIDS Event” at Barker Hanger at The Santa Monica Airport. She was platinum blonde! She had everyone at this event on their feet applauding when she took to the stage. She was the Fairy Godmother of AIDS causes! This was an amazing appearance for her since in 1997 she underwent brain surgery for a benign tumor. I actually couldn’t believe how great Liz looked sans her famous teased hair in her LIFE Magazine post brain tumor operation photo spread! At the event many A list stars showed up in Halloween costumes, like Jamie Lee Curtis in her “Cat” Costume. I remember when Jamie Lee was coming off the red carpet and she was twirling her cat tail and walked up to me and “purred”! Jamie is fun and never takes herself too seriously!

Liz was a very private woman, yet was very sweet and friendly and down to earth once she let you in her world. I first met Liz when she was married to Larry Fortensky. I remember Larry Fortensky and I talking one time, he just rolled in from Palm Springs and was absolutely “smitten” with Liz. Larry was not the typical “Hollywood” type of guy that you think Liz would have been with, but in reality, Larry was what she liked and needed… at that time! Liz had so many marriages to “dream guys” like Conrad Hilton, Eddie Fisher which sparked a war with Debbie Reynolds, Richard Burton and so on, that made every woman in the world dream what would it be like to have been her.

Although, Liz could be brutally honest and be a “broad” at times, and this is what made her so unique. She was strong, yet weak at times.

Her weight gains and losses made news as well as her fashion and hair choices. Her famous mole even made news! Funny, I have a mole on the same side of my face like hers, as so did my grandmother! Hmm, coincidence? Joking of course!

Whether you liked Liz for her acting, persona, charity work, her “White Diamonds” perfumes, or heck you just liked “Her”, she is a legendary lady and “STAR”… yes, all capitals,… and she will be greatly missed. I am sure she will never be forgotten, how could she?

The list of movies that she will be immortalized in; “National Velvet”, “Giant”, “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Wolf”, “These Old Broads” her last movie, and “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” and of course my personal favorite “Cleopatra”, just to name some.

The funeral for Elizabeth Taylor was held yesterday, Thursday March 24, 2011 at 2:15 PM, 15 minutes “fashionable late” per Liz’s instructions. It was a private service at the same cemetery where Michael Jackson and in the same Mausoleum as Jackson.

Daniel DiCriscio Praying

I remember a month before my Mother passed away she called me and Liz came up in the conversation because Liz was admitted to the hospital. My Mother said to me “I wonder who will die first, Liz or me?” Anyway, Liz is gone and she will be greatly missed. Legends Never Die.

Comments Comments Off on “Legend, Lavender, Love, and Lady” Elizabeth Taylor’s Final Curtain Call by Daniel DiCriscio

Anna Nicole Smith

Seldom do I ever get a chance to just unwind and relax and think nothing except just the food I am eating. Well I got together with a ‘re-new’ old friend, does that make any sense? Let me explain, I met Daniel DiCriscio years ago, a very long time ago. He was employed at the Jose Eber Salon and had just launched his music career. Funny as it seems I remember that CD and it was not bad. I was developing my new business and offices and Daniel was busy with his hair and as I said his music. This guy has some real talent other than being ‘Daniel’. Go ahead and Google him, after you Google me.

Recently his mom died and we communicated both by phone and email and I could hear the pain in his voice as well as in his writings. His emotions were ones that had escaped me during similar circumstances that I had and I felt bad that he was at a loss in his mother’s death. We spoke further and again, it was good for me in away that is hard for me to explain.

Well through the last couple of years Daniel has assisted me in a few projects and he, like myself are tough to miss. He has a presence! The great blond hair and of course his style of dress, too bad those in power during the Anna Nicole Show missed him and found that ‘mess’ who played too many episodes. Booby Bobby or Bobby Boob, whatever. The two of us make an interesting ‘set’, black and white, sour and sweet, Beauty and , well enough, you get my point.

I suggested we get together for a bite to eat and the amazing thing here is that we are both very entertaining when it comes to the rich and famous. It was to the point I was wondering how have we missed what could be one of the best duos since Dean and Jerry, Amos and Andy, Jan and Dean, and maybe even Mutt and Jeff. My point here is that we could both have a new career, we had each other laughing and on serious points we were both on target. Especially, our thoughts on Anna Nicole Smith as well as others both in and out of Hollywood. My perspective is sarcastic and stinging; Daniel has what I call a ‘snap’, like get over it. Call me a little odd, but I was very entertained and realized it was just him and me.

I am posting this picture to make my point, when it comes to ‘Hollywood Insiders’ no one can come close to either one of us. And we both understand how far to the line we can come after all of these years bumping around Hollywood. Speaking for myself, there are things that I would never speak of and a book, is never going to happen. For Daniel the stories about Elizabeth Taylor alone could fill two chapters in his book. My time with Miss Taylor could fill maybe ten pages….thanks Adam! I recall my first encounter with Peerez Hilton and thought, “ Beast “, and having to do a short pilot with him, Lisa Stanley of KRTH ( she is the best ) and Ryan Seacrest’s assistant, what’s her name……the painful part was Peerez Hilton…and those feet!

All I am saying is watch, there could very well be some very interesting ‘tea’ coming along and presented in away that only two people in this town could present, John & Daniel or Daniel & John……that will be a hump to stroll over…..in time.
