|A funny topic for me considering the timing. I was home last weekend when I went to NYC for business and stayed through the weekend and made it a personal trip, since I didn't have my kids.
Ben Bailey-host of "Cash Cab" was 2 years younger than me and I know him. He's exactly the same as he is on that show. A goofy guy who likes to have fun.
Amy Sacco-the "elitist" Club Queen of NYC who owned Bungolow 8 and Lot61 was in my graduating class and ran with my crowd. They based a whole bunch of "Sex and the City" shit off her clubs. I remember her when she crashed her car listening to Sting and now she hangs out with him. She claims that she's not from NJ and it's completely hilarious. Her brothers are a bunch of huge guys and are cool and own a big moving company in my hometown, Chatham NJ.
Dr. Robi: The shrink from the Larry King Show and Nancy Grace is the former Robi Shalotsky. I was friends with her and her two sisters. Really nice people. She was 3 years older than me.
3 people died in High School. They were killed in an auto accident in our town. 2 others survived but were fucked up for a long time after. I'm friends with both of the survivors on FB and was also with the 3 that died. That happened in 1984. The most fucked up part about it is that Dr. Robi's sister and I were out about 2 nights before that crash and we ran into the driver (we were too young to drive by about a year) and he asked us to go with him. Ramy (Robi's sister) is/was hot and we hopped in. This guy drove an old (1960's) Mercedes like it was a new Ferrari, and it didn't handle well. We went around the same crazy curve that they killed themselves on two nights later and Ramy looked in the back seat at me with total fear in her eyes. She and I both thought that Pete (the driver) was nuts.
Two mornings later, I get woken up by a phone call by Ramy, who told me that those guys died. She said, you know that could have been us...... Very fucked up!
I've had a few others die since. My really good, crazy friend named Mark got too large (350+ at 6'6") and died of a heart attack last year. I just found this out and was saddened to hear it.
We have no serial killers, which actually surprised me.
