Not Acceptable!                                                       

 Social workers inspected the home of octuplets mother Nadya Sulemanin La Habra, CA yesterday (March 12).  As they deemed her future home unacceptable and decided her babies should remain at a Bellflower Hospital for several more days, Nadya had a team of cameras following her every move — possibly for a new reality TV show??

Howard K. Stern is Busted!

The longtime companion and attorney of Anna Nicole Smith was charged March 12th, for conspiring to furnish drugs to the Playboy pin-up in the years leading up to her 2007 death from a prescription medication overdose. Stern and one of the doctors charged voluntarily turned themselves in to police Thursday night (March 12th) and were immediately arrested and booked. Another doctor who is facing the same charges is reportedly expected to turn himself into police on Monday.

Chirs Brown  Says…  

Don’t believe everything you read.  Contrary to a New York Post report claiming that Chris Brown had fired all his staff — including the manager who allegedly sent the text message that caused this mess in the first place — his mom/co-manager Joyce Hawkins has issued a statement saying it’s all – “unequivocally” – not true

She says: “Reports that Chris is looking to replace his team, including Mark Geragos, Tina Davis and Mike Sitrick, are false. There are only two people who could make a change at that level on Chris’ behalf: his business attorney Kenny Meiselas and me — and neither of us were the source of this information. To the contrary, Kenny told the media outlet that broke this item, that the information they had was false. So there is no room for doubt or misunderstanding, let me state unequivocally, that no change is planned or being made with respect to Mark Geragos, Tina Davis or Mike Sitrick. We are very pleased with the work they are doing.”

WEEKEND HOT SPOTS!                                                                                   FRIDAY: Social Twenty-Five opening tonight! It’s being called the perfect blend of sports and style—sort of the Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen of River North watering holes. Social Twenty-Five 25 W. Hubbard St (between Dearborn and Wabash)

SATURDAY DAY: Dye The River Green Party at Fulton’s On The River! Green beer, prime viewing spot and Kegs N’ Eggs ?! Fulton’s On The River 315 North LaSalle 9am-4pm

SATURDAY NIGHT:                                                                                                JBAR-  Sexy drinks, hot music, the A-list crowd and DJ Rock City! What more could a girl want?! J BAR – 600 N. Rush Street – Chicago, IL 60611

Until next time..

Natalia Avilez, NBC5 Street Team

Thanks to all you that were able to come out last night to our official Street Team party — all 135 of you that is. Although I got there 2 hours late, missing out on the open bar, and my phone was blowing up with texts of “where are you,” I finally made it! It was nice to finally meet many of my fellow Street Teamers, like the Fireman Jon IbrahamThe Local Tourist, Chasity Chaos, Shlomi, Relaxocat (thanks for the bunny ears), singer-songwriter Natalie, and others that I would have liked to have had more time to speak with. It was nice to get some feedback on many of my stories, it was a big ego boost!

Next time, I will definately get there early enough to mingle with the rest of you and meet with more of you. Thanks again to Marcus Riley and Jbar General Manager, Jimmy Koklas, for taking the time to speak with me and giving me the head count of the nights event. For those of you that were not able to make it, I will see you next time!

Hungry Z, NBC5 Street Team
After weeks of anticipation, the Street Team party finally arrived! Inside the the swanky JBar, this was a chance to meet fellow Street Teamers and our fans face to face. I arrived at 7:30pm and then abruptly left at 9pm.

Why the abrupt exit? Well, my lovely wife and daughter locked themselves out of our home, so good old Hungry Z had to come to the rescue. I included a pic of my beautiful ladies. Before my departure, I had the pleasure of meeting some of my fellow Street Teamers, even though it was far too brief. In that short time I met some of the coolest people anyone could hope to meet.

Paul “The Sports” Banks was on hand and it was cool to finally meet you, we’ll definately hang out soon. Theresa “The Local Tourist” , it was great to meet you, you’re probably the most well rounded blogger we’ve got here. Cara Carriveau, I love listening to you on the Mix, and I’m glad you enjoyed my Taste of Chicago adventure. Big D.C. of “Fete Select TV”, nice running into you and let’s collaberate on some things to help expand both of our growing universes. I briefly ran into John “The Fireman”, now we have officially met buddy. I very briefly met the lovely Liz Holland, thanks for the love in regards to the Taste. And of course Mr. Marcus Riley was on hand, and it’s always a pleasure to share an idea with you.

Finally I did run into a couple of fans before I left, so we snapped a pic before I had to run. Nikki and Lynn, thanks for coming and for all the love! I wish I could have stayed and met everyone, and I apalogize to everyone I missed tonight. But alas, my ladies needed me, and what’s a dad/husband to do, but help his family. Hope you all had fun and we need to do this again next year!

Jon Ibrahim, NBC5 Street Team

In the past few years that I’ve been writing my sex and dating column, and more recently my blog, I’ve received countless emails and posts asking every type of sex, dating, and relationship question known to man (and woman).  Although I love interacting with the readers, they were just faceless names on the email heading in the vast of cyberspace.  There was no personal interaction.

Now that me and my psychiatrist partner-in-crime, Dr. Paul Dobransky, record our NBC5 podcast “The Fireman and the Shrink,” our listeners connect with us so much that they wish they were in the conversation with us.  Ladies, don’t you wish you could ask any question about sex, dating, and relationships and get a no-holds-barred answer from a male perspective? Well you’re in luck, because now you can!

Me and Dr. Paul will be appearing at JBar (inside the James Hotel, 610 N. Rush) this Thursday June 19th from 7 pm – 8:30pm.  We’ll be answering questions at an open forum of ladies’ sex, dating, and relationship questions, and anything goes!  We’ll also be interviewing and recording some podcasts with any ladies willing to be heard!  And best of all, ladies, you’ll be in good company because the event is being brought to you by GalsGuide.com, THE site women turn to when they have questions about adjusting to life in the big city after college. And although it’s ladies’ night, guys, you’re invited too! It’s gonna be a blast, so hope to see you there!!
