Bon Jovi’s Richie Sambora, The Homeshoppingista Chat At ‘When We Were Beautful’ Party: We Jersey Folk Speak The Same Language

Sambora, Torres and The Homeshoppingista

The Homeshoppingista and Sambora

Here it is, our first photo download! And what a download it is, a shot of Bon Jovi’s Richie Sambora and The Homeshoppingista. The man in the middle in the background is drummer Tico Torres.

OK, we know it’s just the back of our head, but that’s the best sister Karen could do at the party after Showtime’s screening of “Bon Jovi: When We Were Beautiful.” It airs Saturday.

Richie, a fellow Jersey person, looks fascinated by our question, doesn’t he? Heather Locklear and Denise Richards have nothing on us (sure).

To read his frank comments to us about the film, check out our story on

But here is one Sambora quote from that story, about the rock-star life.

“Everybody kind of looks at us like we’re exempt from human tragedy or whatever goes on in people’s lives,” Sambora told us. “That’s not true. We’re just regular guys. Because when we go home, we f–king take the garbage out just like everybody else.”

We have to run. We’re late for our volunteer work for the PR department of a big hospital chain, where we are writing about serious life-and-death issues.

Lisa, we have the “When We Were Beautiful” DVD for you. We’re on our way.

    We just finished watching….FANTASTIC! Both Joe and I loved it. During the tour flashbacks we sang along as if we were in the front row. One comment…wish some was filmed in color. Thanks so much for sharing.

    Hey, give sister Karen a break…I suspect margaritas were involved here….good job on the photo and the download.

  3. Lisa Says:

    The picture is great! I’m jealous!!

    Hey, it’s just me, the tipsy photographer checking in, keeping it real! First, let me say that I think the photo isn’t half bad. I did get half of your face. And to set the record straight, I only had two yummy margaritas!!! Maybe The Homeshoppingista could buy her kid sis a new camera for Christmas or turn her head toward the camera when being photographed. LOL! All kidding aside, it was a great night! Seeing a group like Bon Jovi up close was awesome! Thanks for taking me!

      OK, you did a good job, under the circumstances. At least you remembered to bring a camera, which was better than I did (although the fact that I don’t actually own a camera would have made that tough). And it’s true, you only had a couple of drinks.

      It was a fun night. I wonder if Ira even made it back home to Brooklyn. The nerve of that guy, complaining that he was only meeting women from Jersey (like us) or Long Island at that party.

      Thanks for driving into the city and coming in with me. It wouldn’t have been fun without you.
