Hollywood’s bravest talent battled at Camp Pendleton in Oceanside, California, this past weekend raising thousands of dollars for Adrian Paul’s PEACE Fund and its supported charities while trending on twitter. The first annual celebrity paintball tournament was host to a star-studded roster, paintball professionals, fans from Los Angeles to San Diego and even those at home. The Hunger Games styled event was the first interactive paintball tournament, where fans who anxiously watched from home were able to help their favorite teams by donating “resources,” to give them advantages in the game. Attendees enjoyed a day of festivities, including paintball challenge courses and a celebrity paintball battle while raising funds and awareness for PEACE Fund, a charity that is committed to educating and protecting children around the world. Celebrity attendees lead their teams into battle on Saturday, fighting for the top 3 spots, while representing the charities closest to their hearts. After a rigorous and colorful game, Rene and Casey Nezhoda, Stefano Langone, Dalal Bruchmann, Carrie Keagan, Luke Goss, Ryan Edge and Ryan Greenspan were victorious, earning donations for both PEACE Fund and their “districts,” PADRES Contra El Cáncer, The Animal Welfare Institute and Saint Judes Research. The painted carpet was also graced by, PEACE Fund founder, Adrian Paul, Bail Ling, Matthew Espinosa (Social Influencer), NFL stars Hank Baskett, Jackie Long (Real Husbands of Hollywood), Kyle Massey (Dancing with the Stars), Wesley Jonathan (What I Like About You), Stefano Langone (American Idol Finalist), Robbie Jones (Tyler Perry’s Temptation) and Carrie Keagan, to name a few. Southern California’s most elite paintball professionals also played to support PEACE Fund’s inspirational cause, including San Diego Dynasty, CP Raiders, Edmonton Impact and Team Ironmen. Sunday was an epic paintball battle, led by Adrian Paul and Carrie Keagan, with Adrian’s team earning the title of PEACE Fund’s first champions. Event sponsors included HK Army, Valken and Airow Gun, contributing specialty merchandise for our top placing teams. Since its inception PEACE Fund has been dedicated to helping children plagued by troubling issues everywhere. The charity now works with organizations around the world to continue its commitment to help protect, educate and aid children.
About PEACE Fund The PEACE Fund was founded in 1997, by Actor Adrian Paul with his mandate of “helping children everywhere,” and the Fund’s initial program “School Makes a Difference.” The program was designed to show children how fun learning can be and how it positively impacts their lives. Now, the PEACE Fund has a series of strategic relationships with organizations around the world that aid to continue its commitment to help protect, educate and aid children everywhere. Funds raised work to improve the lives of children around the world, providing hygienic kits for the children of Mercy and Sharing charity, building homes for children in the Dominican Republic and supplying a baby respiratory unit for a hospital in Hungary are just some of the way The PEACE Fund gives back.

IM5 Phone Interview!
If you’ve ever seen my youtube, I’m sure you have come across one of my interviews with the emerging boy band IM5 consisting of Will Jay, Gabe Morales, Cole Pendery, Dana Vaughns, and Dalton Rapattoni. They are constantly performing in the greater L.A. area as well as out of state, you can see all of their performance dates via their website at http://www.im5band.com. These boys are one of my favorite interviews as they are always cracking me up, have been so supportive, and I just love their music. Since I haven’t seen them in a while, I thought it’d be fun to do a phone interview with them, and their manager was kind enough to set one up for us on Monday, May 15. Read below for some of the things we discussed! :)
The boys presented at the Radio Music Awards back in April and were lucky enough that their hair stylist Richard gave them the amazing opportunity to meet Selena Gomez! They thought she was so nice and sweet, and love her song “Come and Get it.” You can see them give the Radio Disney award to Coco Jones on their youtube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2uESFcx-PqM along with some extra awesome dancing! For more about the RDMA’s and the amazing turnout, go to http://www.radidisney.com.
I also caught up with each of the boys with fan questions submitted by YOU! Thanks for everyone who tweeted me, and if yours wasn’t chosen this time, there will be plenty more chances!
If he could be any type of dinosaur, he would be a dodo bird.
He thinks the fan fictions can become a little wild sometimes...lol.
If he could trade bodies with one other member of IM5, he would choose Will minus his style because he is smart, has perfect pitch, and clever tweets.
His current favorite song is “Like Whaaat” by Problem featuring Bad Lucc.
His phone is kept on vibrate.
His favorite part of an oreo is the creme.
Will is allergic to cats, and considers himself a dog person.
His favorite part of an oreo cookie is the creme.
His current favorite song is Blurred Lines by Robin Thicke.
His ringtone is simple, just “na-na-na-na-na.”
If he could trade bodies with one other member of IM5, he would choose Dana or Cole because they both have very different lifestyles compared to him
When someone wants to do something they shouldn’t he tells them, in a very high pitched voice, “Um..I don’t think you should do that...”
He is allergic to cats, but has two dogs named Batman and robin.
His favorite part of an oreo is the creme.
His ringtone is “Batman”! If you know anything about Gabe, you know he loves Batman. :)
If he could become another member of IM5, he would become Dalton.
To make sure you stand out when he plays a concert, dress up like Cat Woman or throw things at him!
He loves dogs and has one of his own named Scooter.
He once saw a fan fiction on Tumblr about playing video games with a fan and then kissing them. If it was you who wrote this, he definitely saw it! :)
His favorite part of an oreo is the creme.
When his mom calls, his ringtone is “Danger, Danger!”
Will says Cole doesn’t eat much, besides gusts of wind.
If he could be another member of IM5 for a day, he would be Will.
He was lying down on a table during this interview. Lol.
He has a dog named Max back home.
His favorite part of an oreo, unlike the others, is the actual cookie.
When his mom calls, his ringtone is “mum mum mommy.”
If he could trade lives with someone else from the band, he would want to be Gabe because he has a bunch of action figures.
I hope you enjoyed this post about IM5 from our phone interview! I can’t wait to interview them again in person this summer, and will be accepting fan questions up until the fact. Please tweet them to me at @OnTheSpotEva, and I will choose the best of the best! Thanks everyone for all of your support of me and the IM5 as well, we all love you!
On March 30, 2013, at 2:30 PST, 10 year old Sophia Lucia accomplished the dream of a lifetime: breaking a Guinness world record! Now, you may ask, what for? Longest fingernails? Biggest eyes? Nope, this one is out of the ordinary. Sophia broke the record for number of consecutive pirouettes en passe, 55 in a row! For people who aren’t dance savvy, a pirouette is a controlled spin on one leg that, in French, means “to turn.” To give you an idea of how huge this is, most dancers don’t do much more than 15, even the most elite and prestigious professionals. Sophia also blew the previous record out of the water, 36 pirouettes which was achieved by Alicia back in 2005.
Sophia’s official Guinness attempt took place at her second home, San Diego Dance Centre in Poway, California. Fans came out to support and watch her through a webcam in a room adjacent to the attempt room - The energy was crazy! As if that’s not enough to blow one’s mind, over 35,000 people who were unable to make it out to SDDC watched Sophia live on Ustream as she attempted to break the record. She was allowed 3 attempts by the Guinness official; with 55 being her highest try. When this was announced to everyone witnessing Sophia’s big day, the entire studio filled with screaming, smiling, hugging, and even crying from Sophia’s supportive parents - tears of joy, of course. It’s not everyday that your child breaks a world record and has a room filled with fans, friends, and family waiting to congratulate her.
After she broke the record, Sophia spent time meeting all of her fans from as far as Florida at the studio. Fans walked away beaming as they had just met one of their favorite dancers and received an autograph and photo opp. A popular dance network, Kar TV, was also present to interview Sophia Lucia at the studio and at her after party with family and friends at Maderas Golf Club. In a nutshell, let’s just say, this day is one to remember and will leave a legacy on everyone involved!
Everyone at San Diego Dance Centre, Sophia’s sponsors Kids Artistic Revenue and California Kisses; all want to wish Sophia a huge congratulations! Way to go, dancing diva.
I, Eva Amantea, was fortunate enough to also be a part of this amazing day and interviewed Sophia at her afterparty. Please watch as we do an On the Spot Interview about not only her world record, but also Easter time, fan questions, and a sweet shoutout! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z1M1OXI0i1k
When I was a kid, I remember seeing Monsters Inc. in theaters with my mom, dad, brother, and big boy cousin. The day it came out on DVD, I remember begging my parents to buy it for me and it was my number one choice for movie night at Grandma's house. Nominated for many Oscars and winning "Best Overall Song" for "If I didn't Have You," it is still one of my favorite Disney movies because it has something for everyone and is a family fun movie. Having said that, you can only imagine how happy I was when I heard about Monster's Universe, a new movie releasing on June 21, 2013! This movie actually precedes Monsters Inc as it unlocks the door to how Mike and Sulley overcome their extreme differences . Believe it or not, these two mismatched monsters couldn't stand each other for a good amount of time! Directed by Dan Scanlon, the director of "Cars", "Mater and the Spotlight," and "Tracy," this is sure to be a huge hit among all ages.
A few returning favorites will be featured in MONSTERS UNIVERSITY, who do YOU want to see again??
Watch Impractical Jokers on TruTV!
From Left to Right: Q, Joe, Sal, and Murr!
Have you ever been exhausted on a Thursday night? Too much homework, stressed for that big AP test tomorrow, or in a fight with your best friend? On The Spot Interviews has a solution for you: watch Impractical Jokers on TruTV! This show airs on TruTv Thursday nights at 10 p.m. Eastern Time, and 7 p.m. Pacific Time. It follows four guy friends in New York who became instant friends in freshman year of high school named Sal, Murr, Q, and Joe. The four compete to embarrass each other with outrageous dares, ranging from asking people to donate to a fake charity to announcing they wet their pants in a movie theatre. At the end of the 30 minute episode, the guy who loses the most dares in ways previously determined, is forced to do an "ultimate dare," at least ten times worse than the others. In the recent episode from September 6, we got to see the guys pretend to be dentists, ask people about their thoughts in Central Park, sell snacks at the movies, and much more. The ultimate loser was Sal, but you have to watch the episode to find out what his ultimate dare was - not only was it embarrassing, but extremely yucky! I chatted with the guys Thursday morning to learn more about them!
Q - Before the Impractical Jokers show came to be, Q was well on his way to being an ice cream truck driver. Besides being on this hit comedy, Q hosts a podcast from with two guys from AMC called "Tell Em Steve Dave"! This podcast aims to give listenersa sense that they could jump into the conversation. He even had the chance to do a live podcast tour in England!
Joe - Joe is considered the bravest of the four guys, although he wasn't always like this. He used to be a nerd and his social future didn't look too bright. That is, until he became a shopper for a baby company and transformed to an in-your-face, loud guy he is today. Although Joe isn't married or has kids, he has older nephews who love to watch Impractical Jokers! Joe also works closely with a charity called Daniel's Music Foundation.
Sal - Sal has always been a competitive one, and he loves that he can express this on the show! Although Sal wasn't available for the interview, he is still just like all of the other guys in terms of daringness and funniness. The three other guys shared a secret about him...should I tell? ;)
Murr - Murr believed he learned more in his life from watching sitcoms in the '80's than he did by going to school. He has no boundaries when it comes to performing the dares, and his most favorite one was at a medical convention - stay tuned, it will air in one of the episodes this September!
Tune into all new episodes in September Thursday nights, and then again for the new season in December!
Jodelle Ferland Phone Interview!
I had the best time interviewing with Jodelle Ferland from The Twilight Saga's Eclipse! Jodelle has always been one of my favorite actresses, so it was an honor to get the chance to speak with her over the phone for a bit. Jodelle can currently be seen in ParaNorman as the voice of Aggie, an awkward girl who finds herself throughout the movie. Since Jodelle has been used to real life films, she said it was funny that she found herself making different expressions and hand motions while in the voice-over studio. Flashback a couple years, and we all know Jodelle as Bree Tanner in Eclipse, a newborn vampire created by Riley. This was a life-channging experience for Jodelle, she was in shock when she got the part of Bree and thought the cast was extremely welcoming. Jodelle loves being in Eclipse, but like most people, she agress the movies keep getting better and better; and cannot wait for Breaking Dawn Part 2! Even though Jodelle lives in Vancouver, you can often catch her in Los Angeles as well for acting and to visit Disneyland! To stay updated with Jodelle's upcoming projects such as "The Haunting Hour" and "Red," follow her on her social media sites!
Fun Facts: - Jodelle LOVES lasagna! - Her favorite color is purple! - Her favorite movie is "Ferris Deeler's Day Off" - When she was young, she did a commercial where she got to play the main role, a mermaid! :)
All About Savannah Outen!
Youtube Sensation Savannah Outen chatted with On The Spot Interviews the other day about how she got her spark for singing! At the young age of 2, Savannah knew she wanted to be a singer. With supportive parents who would take Savannah to concerts and music competitions, this alone showed her dedication. Some concerts Savannah attended were NSYNC, LeAnn Rimes, Backstreet Boys, and her favorite, LFO - She was the lucky 8 year old fan to be brought up on stage! She also listened to huge names such as The Beatles and Celine Dion, who inspired her even more to become a singer. Singing is a major part of Savannah's life - Although she lives in Oregon, she visits Los Angeles for concerts and meetings. When in Oregon, Savannah performs covers and originals on her Youtube, some videos soaring with millions of views each! I am happy to announce that Savannah Outen will be one of the featured performers at the ASPCA Rock N Roll L.A. Concert. It's an honor to have Savannah coming down for this event, as she loves raising awareness for any organization preventing animal cruelty and has a yorkie of her own named Jack. Besides being a passionate animal lover, Savannah recently became involved with a charity known as "Music is Medicine," an organization allowing her to skype with patients at the John Hopkins Hospital. The icing on the cake is after the skype session, Savannah actually visits the hospital and performs a song she wrote specifically for the patients! Below, find all the links to Savannah's social media accounts as aell as how you can meet her at the ASPCA Rock N Roll L.A. event!

Ryan Potter and Kyle Weiss - Chance To Play Insider!
On The Spot Interviews caught up with Supah Ninja's Ryan Potter, one of the two celebrities who started the Chance To Play event set for this Sunday, August 5 at USC. In a nutshell, starting at 10 a.m. on Sunday, attendees will participate in the viewing of a soccer game with Nickeoldeon and Disney celebrities (see "Upcoming Events" for complete list). This event will raise money for two organizations, Toy Boy of Hope (Ryan's organization that collects toys for underpriveleged children in L.A.), and FundAField (an organization started by Kyle Weiss that builds soccer fields throughout poor parts of the world so kids can play soccer). To see the inside scoop about Kyle Weiss and FUNDaFIELD, simply scroll down! Ryan told us that the purpose in his part of this celebrity soccer game is to benefit youth at risk in the bad parts of Los Angeles, and to eventually spread his dream of ending homelessness to multiple cities. Ryan believes the homeless rate in L.A. is insane, a rough estimate of 15,000 children are homeless, some hiding to escape abuse, drugs, or terrible home situtations. This event is going to be a day of fun all raising money for these two great causes, with several event highlights! The top things Ryan says attendees and fans can look forward to are: - the soccer game, of course, with surprises and opportunities to actually play in the game - IM5 performance - Two celebrity hosts Kirk Fox and Stephen Glickman - DJ Colgate - meet and greets with the celebrities in attendance before, at half time, and after the soccer game. be sure to bring an autograph book and a camera for pictures! -Ryan Potter and Kyle Weiss will have their meet and greet at the beginning/before the soccer game stars, be sure to say hi to them and let them know it's great that they are making a difference! Also, jewelery made by women in Uganda will be for sale!
On The Spot Interviews also chatted with Kyle Weiss about the organization that he founded, called FUNDaFIELD. This organization was started by him and his brother at the World Cup in Germany. The mission is to build soccer fields and deliver soccer equipment all over developing countries. Although the fields were originally built just in Africa, in 2012 the fields have been expanded to all over the world. These soccer fields bring happiness to everyone who has the CHANCE TO PLAY on them, including people involved in natural disasters and ex child soldiers. Kyle has even been seen on tv with David Beckham regarding the FUNDaFIELD projects. Kyle is dedicated to FUNDaFIELD - not only has he traveled to Africa 13 times and Haiti as well, he organized 4 soccer tournaments in Uganda with 500 players! Remember that this event is a celebrity event with meet and greets - some celebrities scheduled to attend are Kenton Duty(Shake it Up) Trevor Jackson (Let it Shine) Dylan Hyde (Singer) Alex Wong (So You Think You Can Dance)
The motto Kyle wants people who attend this event to remember is "Show the importance of hope and play to inspire others to make a difference." For people attending, make sure you let Kyle know how much you appreciate his help to change the world!
On The Spot Interviews is excited to be attending this event and interviewing on the red carpet, all while helping underprivileged youth from Los Angeles to Africa.

Introducing Sophia Linkletter!
Sophia Linkletter is this week's rising talent alert! I'm sure many people recognize her last name, as she is the great granddaughter of legendary tv host Art Linkletter. Sophia was recently cast as the main role, Lucy, in a new independent film called "Gawkward." Lucy is a teenager exploring her sexuality who has strict parents. Other projects Sophia has been featured in include "She's A Fox" alongside Hailee Steinfeld, a teaser commercial with Twilight's Cam Gigandet, and interviewed with The Joey and Elise Show. Besides acting, Sophia has a music video for her single "All I Want" starring her and actor Cooper Peltz, and a single called "Rejection."

Expect to see Sophia in her movie "Gawkward" which will be out in 2014, along with many side projects coming up! IF you see her on the red carpet, say hi and show her some support! Follow her on Twitter and like her on Facebook! Write her some fan mail at Coast to Coast!
Top Talent Agencies!
Actors and actresses looking to make it big in the entertainment industry will usually have an agent, manager, publicist, and legal representative. Most of the time, young kids first get an agent and work from there. From being at different events and interviewing different people, I was able to get a feel for some of the top talent agencies here in Los Angeles. The following agencies are popular because of their number of celebrity clients, dedication to making their clients' dreams come true, and treating each client like they are their only one. I'd say the top three agencies for actors and actresses 5-21 are:
Coast to Coast - Coast to Coast has been around for 25 years that provides agents in all areas of the industry - commercial, film, television, etc. Their daily vision is to provide their clients with opportunities to reach their professional goals through dedication, cultivation, and vision. Popular names who use Coast to Coast for a talent agency are Tiffany Espensen, Jadin Gould, Caroline Sunshine, Davis Cleveland, Adam Irigoyen, Bradley Steven Perry, Madison Pettis, and more.
Osbrink Talent - Osbrink and Coast to Coast are very similar agencies in the sense that they focus on youth talent and provide agents in all aspects of the entertainment industry. I see a lot of clients from Osbrink Talent at charity events. Kenton Duty from Shake it Up is with Osbrink, as well as Taylar Hender, Laura Marano, Cameron Boyce, and Maggie Elizabeth Jones. Unlike other agencies, Osbrink has a personal publicist for their clients - a two for one deal!
CESD Talent - Created in 2005, CESD stands for the Cunningham-Escott-Slevin-Doherty. CESD also offers youth talent agents and has 34 agents in just two offices. Some of their celebrity clients are Mitchel Musso, Madison de la Garza, Bridger Zadina, Sam Lant, Vincent Martella, Seth Dusky, Leigh Allyn Baker, Claire Engler, and Brian Stepanek. The agents here have always been very sweet to me regarding interviews with their clients!
Bella Thorne supports a lot of charities! She hosted a dress giveaway with Ooh La La Couture in which she handed out dresses and shoes to 100 girls living in the bad part of central Los Angeles. She also works with the Make A Wish Foundation so little girls and boys with terminal illnesses can meet her. Most recently, Bella teamed up with DoSomething.org and Staples office supplies store to collect school supplies for those (about 16 million kids in the United States alone) who can't afford them. Staples stores throughout the nation have donation boxes with Bella Thorne inside their stores where shoppers can donate pencils, notebooks, staples, markers, colored pencils, composition books, rulers, paper, and any other school items. Bella filmed a Public Service Announcement for this cause that can be checked out here! How can you help? Three simple ways: 1. Next time you are at Staples, buy an extra box of pencils or other school supply and drop them off in the donation box on your way out. You may have seen these donation boxes before, past celebrities featured on them were Jordin Sparks from American Idol and Lucy Hale from Pretty Little Liars. 2. Go to DoSomething.org/Staples and sign up for have your own school supply drive in your area. 3. Join the "Raise Yiur Hand" Staples for Students team and you could win a trip to Hollywood! Register here!
Hope For Mushu
Meet Mushu, a three year old horse at the Rocking Horse Ranch in El Cajon, California. Rocking Horse Ranch provides kids with disabilities mental services, team building and leadership, and personal growth through riding horses. Mushu is one of the horses located at Rocking Horse Ranch, and a favorite among the ranch. Recently, he developed a rare and fatal infection in his hoof, called canker. This disease is so rare that it is practically unheard of in the United States, let alone in California. Because this ranch teaches kids to persevere and not give up, we need to prove this mission by raising money to save Mushu from canker! Recording artists Dylan Hyde and actor Jared Gilmore have teamed up to publicize the campaign to save Mushu and they created a PSA for it: http://vimeo.com/agmg/hopeformushu. Together, we need to raise the $20,000 necessary for surgeries, recovery, and prosthetics so Mushu can be saved from the canker. Otherwise, Mushu will have to be put to sleep. Please, help us save Mushu! This ranch needs our help - this is a miracle horse that deserves to live much longer than four years! To learn more and donate, either visit the Rocking Horse Ranch website where you can make a tax-deductible donation at http://www.rockinghorseranch.org/mushu.php or Dylan Hyde's music website. http://dylanhydemusic.com/fr_bowtiesandlemons.cfm every amount helps us save Mushu!

Adrian played Esteban on The Suite Life of Zack and Cody with Cole and Dylan Sprouse. Once this wildly popular show came to an end, Adrian knew he wanted to help kids in the entertainment industry.

He founded the Celebrity Actors Camp, which is a two week camp in Los Angeles, and has since included day events throughout the country.

For those unfamiliar with Avalanna, she is an adorable six year old girl who has an extremely rare form of cancer. She is losing her voice and we don't now how much longer she has to live.

He flew Avalanna to New York to meet him and they played board games, signed autographs for each other, and she was granted the name of Mrs. Bieber. Avalanna aslo appeared on the NBC documentary on June 20, called "All Around the World.," where Justin Bieber gave her a ring and they became "engaged." Avalanna's parents and team urge you to pray for her medical conditions and read more about this form of cancer, known as AT/RT here! - You can also donate for Avalanna and other children with this life threatening cancer using the link! We are so happy that Justin is taking time to help Avalanna, we can all help her out and cure AT/RT!
Help Caley Camarillo!
As a lot of you may know, I have a strong passion for helping families who have children with cystic fibrosis, a.k.a. CF. This is a genetic disorder that affects the lungs and digestive system, making it very hard to breathe at times. As if this isn't enough, people living with CF are hospitalized numerous times, may have to get lung transplants, and miss out on fun activities. A while ago, Davis Cleveland tweeted a link to a video that a little girl made about living with cystic fibrosis, and this caught my attention. After skimming through Twitter, I found a little girl named Caley Camarillo who has CF. She lived in California like me, so I knew I had to find a way to interview her about living with CF and to promote the bracelets she sells to raise money. I was fortunate enough to get in touch with Caley's mom and we met at an event called Tutus 4 Tots with Ooh LaLa Couture! She made bracelets for all the celebrities and girls at this charity pink carpet event! Caley was such a sweetheart, but I could tell that her health was declining. She was very skinny, pale, and was coughing a lot. So, what does this have to do with Caley? Caley loves being able to go on fun trips, drawing and painting, and doing all activities any 10 year old girl loves. With her health at risk from cystic fibrosis, we need to help Caley with her quality of life now. With all your support on Twitter, we can make sure that Caley raises money for fun activities, art supplies, and anything else - she deserves so much!! Simply go to http://www.braceletsbymisscaley.ecrater.com and purchase one of Caley's gorgeous bracelets or a tee that says "Breathe." You'll know that you are helping a precious 10 year old girl and her family live life to the fullest, but it gets better! If you put your Twitter name when paying for the bracelet, you could get a follow and fan prize from Shake it Up's Kenton Duty! The Camarillo family thanks you for your help, and please spread the word!

Wanted to give a shoutout on this blog to Celeb Secrets 4 U! They have been so helpful with planning the ASPCA orange carpet and concert event on October 6, getting us sponsors and A-list celebrities! Celeb Secrets 4 U is an online blog and youtube channel. The team interviews stars just like me, but they have a little twist on it - In each interview, the celebrity dishes on a secret or hidden talent about themselves. They gain access to the best events in Hollywood and New York, including Teen Choice Awards, Dream Magazine parties, Disney premieres, and celebrity birthday parties. Recently they interviewed Debby Ryan in Beverly Hills, Roshon Fegan, and the stars that attended Evan Hofer's birthday party. I also saw them interview at some of the events I have covered like the Triple J Birthday Bash back in January, and the first annual ASPCA event! Please show them support and thank them for helping us with the ASPCA 2nd annual event by following them on Twitter, liking them on Facebook, and subscribing to them on youTube.
Fan Mail Addresses
The following are addresses listed by cast for you to write celebrities and get autographs back in the mail! There are many steps involved in writing fan mail: 1. Decide whose autograph you want. 2. Obtain two 9 by 12 manilla envelopes, found at stores such as Target, Staples, or even Vons. 3. Address the first letter to yourself with your address. 4. Address the second envelope to the celebrity you are writing to by using the fan mail addresses listed below. 5. Write a letter to the celebrity letting them know what you like about them, why you like their show, and a request for an autograph. 6. Fold the envelope addressed to yourself along with the letter, and place it inside the envelope addressed to the celebrity. Make sure both of the envelopes have stamps on them - If you are sending within the United States, $1.10 on each envelope is needed. If you are from another country, use international reply coupons. 7. Send off the envelope to the post office and be patient! Depending on the demand for autographs of a celebrity, you may have to wait a while before receiving an autographed picture back. Usually stars will authentically sign a cast picture, but the popular stars such as Josh Hutcherson or Miley Cyrus may send a pre-printed autograph. Keep in mind that most of the addresses below are not directly to the star, but through their management, agency, or publicity firm. Good luck and let me know in the comments if you have any success!

Any girls out there with sisters who drive you crazy, get on your nerves, or blame you for their mishaps? This certainly isn't the case for Melissa and Jessica, who together make up the pop duo L2! 22 year old Melissa and 19 year old Jessica are two sisters who together follow their dreams as singers, songwriters, and actresses. With over 60 songs recorded, the duo makes an effort to have a meaningful message in each one of their songs, with some available currently on iTunes. Their most popular singles are Insomnia and Secret. Insomnia talks about how liking a guy so much can make you feel sick to your stomach, a message any young girl can relate to! The sisters have accomplished a lot in the short time they have been recording music - They have performed at venues including Manhattan dance and rock clubs. They have been featured on AOL music, Just Jared JR, and Dish Nation. The sisters are known for having a strong bond that grows bigger with music, and would love any support! You can follow them on Twitter @L2official, and like them on Facebook at L2OfficialMusic. Make sure to tweet them before they get too famous! :)
Introducing One Warm Night
New websiode alert! The dark comedic web series known as One Warm Night premieres August 15, 2012. Brought to you by Steven G. Lowe from The Actors Room and Last Chance Productions, this 17 ensemble cast is filled with familiar faces. Among them are Sean Michael Afable (To Save a Life, Akeelah and the Bee) Jared Hernandez (Disney 365 on Disney Channel) Jared Lee (10 Things I Hate About You) Laura Meadows (Behind the Scenes) and Yasmeen Yamak ( Argo). The plot line straight from the One Warm Night website is:
A dark comedy, One Warm Night is “One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest” meets “12 Angry Men” meets “Clue”. A near-murder whodunit, involving a beautiful girl who invites her past boyfriends to reveal a life-changing secret. This unwitting group of misfits and oddballs find themselves caught in a game of cat-n-mouse as a plot to murder them all unfolds. But who is trying to kill them? Things heat up as a multitude of mysteries are revealed, leaving even the most aware guessing at what is truly “real” in the crazy twists and turns of One Warm Night.
