Tom Sandoval and The MOST Extras Concert Review


I'm going to be real right now- I never cared for Vanderpump Rules until January 2020. Despite being a huge housewives fan, VR never caught my attention. Maybe it was Jax...I don't know but finally, after seeing some of the cast on RHOBH, I finally gave in and decided to watch the first episode. And then I watched the next. Then the next. By that time, Season 8 was just beginning and I had become addicted. In a week and a half, I had watched all seven seasons (plus the first four of the new season) and was ready to pack my bags, move to WeHo, and work at SUR.  I must add I have never binged a series in my life so this was a first for me. Two months later, COVID hit and I was jobless. Like many people, the uncertainty of what was going on in the world exacerbated my anxiety and PTSD so reliable television gave me comfort. The cast of Vanderpump did just that for me and throughout the past two years, the good and the bad, the highs and the lows, they have always been there for me. Sometimes more than my actual friends. 

A month or so ago, it was announced that Tom Sandoval and his band The MOST Extras would be coming to town and I immediately knew I had to go. Tickets were relatively cheap ($35) and all at general admission so my boyfriend and I got them and arrived about a half an hour early. A full merch table was set up with handmade over-the-top glittery hats, shirts, sweatshirts, etc. The tour manager was ready to give fans whatever they needed though stock was running low. The best was a shirt with Sandy in drag a la Andy Warhol. We walked into the theater and managed third row. The band was eclectic and beyond talented, let me just say that up front. Tom came out last, holding his phone to capture the moment, in a glittered-to-the-nines suit. 

That girl who was just trying to not crack during a pandemic was mesmerized. I've met huge celebrities in my time and am rarely starstruck but Sandy did it. He is not only larger than life but commands the stage. I appreciate he does not do original songs, to be honest as I am a huge fan of amazing cover songs. He had the right energy and the perfect music in his arsenal (Take On Me, I Write Sins Not Tragedies, Groove Is In The Heart, Freedom '90) so it kept his patrons dancing and singing nonstop. A big moment was when he held up a picture of Tom Schwartz's mom and sang "Schwartzy's Mom" over "Jessie's Girl" which was iconic and fabulous. 

It came to the point where two hours and a costume change later and you still did not want the show to end. Sadly, it did but he was so gracious. He had come into the audience at one point but stayed to take selfies even after it was over despite a meet and greet he had to attend. Honestly, it was more than I could have ever expected. Sandy said this was spring training for the band but they hit a home run. If you are a fan of the show or just love good music, definitely recommend. They have one more show tomorrow, Sunday March 13th at The Gramercy in NYC so try to check it out.

A 'Jerseylicious' Split!

  photo courtesy of When you were on a semi-successful reality show, especially as one of the key players, and everyone watched your love story unfold, it only makes sense they will want to keep following you after the series has ended. Such has been the case for 'Jerseylicious' star, Tracy DiMarco , who always went head-to-head with Olivia Blois-Sharpe on the show based around the never-ending drama at the Jersey salon, The Gatsby. Eventually, DiMarco got her happily ever after when she married Corey Epstein in her dream wedding. She continued to pursue her passion, have three kids, develop a wildly successful podcast, and work on clothing and accessories.  But, when you are in the public eye, boasting 541K followers on Instagram , almost everything you do is up for scrutiny. Fans (and haters) began to notice a lack of presence when it came to her husband, Corey and questioned if their marriage was okay. There is an abundance of photos of daughters, Skylar and

'The Real L Word' Cast- Where Are They Now?

  photo courtesy of With the return of the hit Showtime series, 'The L Word,' it makes fans of the original show and ultimate reality spinoff, 'The Real L Word,' quite nostalgic. Actors can keep acting but reality stars can drift off into the clouds after their 15 minutes of fame are over. TRLW lasted three seasons with a revolving door of lesbians who soon became like friends and family. Initially based in California, the show followed the lives of a handful of gay women, somehow intertwined in life, and what it was like to date, fall in love, have sex, try to make babies, propose, be successful, and so much more. By the final season, the series went bi-coastal, utilizing NYC as a playground, as well. The show ended in 2012 with two weddings and a lot of tears. So, where are they now?
