People never seem to take our advice.
We gave our brother recommendations of Boston eateries when he went to Beantown to see the Yankees play that evil band, the Red Sox. He and his wife didn’t go to any of them.
We recommended, to that same brother and other friends, our favorite places and restaurants in Scottsdale (Mastro’s, The Spotted Donkey Cantina, Carlsbad Tavern), and no one went to any of them.
We suggest places for friends to buy great, inexpensive clothes, and they don’t go.
So imagine our pleasant surprise when we we tagged on Facebook Monday by none other than Laurie Feltheimer, who does the Hot in Hollywood apparel and accessory line for HSN.
It was a photo of Feltheimer and Jennifer Stallone, who sells her Serious Skincare line on HSN, both raising glasses of wine, in a toast.
Awhile back we suggested that Laurie, who is married to Lionsgate studio chief Jon Feltheimer, take Jennifer, who is married to Sylvester Stallone, to dinner in thanks. That’s because Sly Stallone’s action flick, “The Expendables,” gave Jon a blockbuster box office hit when he really needed one, to help fend off corporate raider Carl Icahn.
So here is what the Facebook tag said yesteday:
“Hi Linda S. Moss! Laurie and I love your blog…so fun, interesting and informative (https://homeshoppingista.wordpress.com/). Laurie took you up on your suggestion, and took Jennifer out to dinner last night to celebrate Expendables going over $100 million in box office! Excellent idea! My Best, Molly Gilles, assistant to Laurie Feltheimer.”
Thanks, Laurie and Molly, for actually taking my advice!
And congrats to all for hitting the $100 million mark on “The Expendables.”
