••• “A week after opening up pay-per-class options in her LA studios, fitness guru Tracy Anderson launched the same options in her Tribeca studio today.” Which reminds me! I heard such an interesting rumor about plans Anderson might have in the neighborhood. If you know what I’m quacking about, let’s talk.Racked

  1. I don’t see anything creative or interesting about the kind of mass consumption that BM promotes. Unsurprisingly, his apartment looks like a lovely display case for logos of all his advertisers.

    • I actually have been to BM’s apartment for a party (i went with a friend) and its really beautiful. But, i hear you…….

  2. When in New York do as NY’ers do! So Texas is a “BIG culture” because they believe in the right to carry.
    Well New York City is a BIG culture because we didn’t all turn into gun carrying nuts after 9/11, we have world class museums and theatre, and for the most part, we live pretty well amongst one another. And our food ain’t bad either!

      Interesting that you refer to a veteran and patriot as a “gun nut”. I guess everyone that has a gun is a nut by your definition.

      Even after an episode like 9/11, you refuse to acknowledge that we are trying to fight the nuts together. While you are dining at your fine restaurants and visiting your museums and theaters, remember that our veterans make that all possible.

      • oh, get real. No one’s a patriot, except really really scary people. And veterans? Anyone can be a veteran – just like anyone can be a cop. Ask a veteran or a cop and they’ll tell you there are a few freak shows in there. And carrying a couple of high-caliber guns into the 9/11 memorial? That’s way cray.
