End of summer 2011

For some strange reason, I have a very hard time going back and editing on Blogger and saving what I had changed. I tried to make some corrections to my "Naked Cowgirl Updates 9/7/11" but after I tried to repost it I realized nothing saved. So I'd like to first start by making a few corrrections:
Naked Cowboy performed a wedding renewal ceremony in Times Square a week ago for a Scottish couple named Jennifer and Graham Provan (it was misspelled before). I also mentioned an interview I had done with Alain Bin Naim during the NYC Gay Pride Parade that was aired on some cable channels (I didn't have his full name posted). I also tried to post other photos including the night out with Lori Michaels wearing the "Only" Collection by Lois Elise but they didn't save either. I'm finishing my "End Of Summer" blog with Labor Day Weekend. Although today is 9/11/2011, I feel any events that occur today deserve their own blog along with special condolences to all who have lost loved ones in the Trade Center Attack 10 years ago.

I had gone into Times Square Friday-Monday of Labor Day Weekend, and although each day was busy, I have to say that Sunday, Sept. 4th was by far the best day out there! I got there around 1:30pm right after the Brazilian Day Parade had just ended. The streets were filled with Brazilians wearing their colors and carrying flags all excited to be there. One of my dearest friends, Debra Cavallini, is Brazilian so I've met many of her friends and have come to the conclusion that Brazilians, generally, are very affectionate, friendly people...and they LOVE "naked"!
I left Times Square around 4pm knowing I was coming back at 8pm with Naked Cowboy because we were going to do another round until 10:30pm and then head over to a party at the Laugh Lounge on Essex Street. Some of the people who sell tickets in Times SQuare for the Comedy Show invited to their party. It was even more crowded in T.S. at that time of night and their was such energy in the crowd! I even had a run-in with the other 2 cowgirls out there...the younger one who got arrested a couple weeks ago, and the older one, Sandy Kane. That was a rare occurance since I don't usually go there that late. I think the crowd was both cofused and amused at the same time.
We brought Franchisee, Rob Cofmann, and our friend Joe to the party, but it was quite a sight to see 2 "Naked Cowboys" and a "Naked Cowgirl" walking down Essex Street. We also invited our friend Minoo Mirsaidi, who showed up looking like Lady GaGa...and pulled it off I might add:) The party was great!
Monday, Sept. 5
I only went into Times Square for an hour and a half since I wanted to spend time home relaxing. It was not crowded at all in the city that afternoon. There were barely any entertainers or street performers out either. I know the summer isn't officially over until Sept. 22nd, but I don't think I'll have too many days to get to the beach. I only got there 2 or 3 times for a little while and I love the beach! I guess I'll have to just plan to head south a few time this winter, so if you're planning a big Party or Event down south and want to hire the "Naked Cowgirl" to come make an appearance or perform the "Cowgirl Dance" to "Ride It Like A Cowgirl", contact my manager Lori Michaels on Facebook or email me at

Naked Cowgirl Updates 9/7/11

I Can't believe the summer is coming to an end. The day after Labor Day weekend was rainy and chilly already. It reminded me of what lies ahead in Times Square very soon....MAJOR GOOSE BUMPS!

Tuesday, 8/9
Naked Cowboy and I went to Times Square for a while and then walked to 44th st. to The Sky Room Lounge for a Rooftop Fashion Show Party with The Vargas Collection. We made an appearance, mingled, and took photos with Alicat Avril Lemieux, Jones Models, and many others who attended the party. Photographers that night included Marie Papp Photography and EMKphoto1, amongst others. It was a great party with clear skies and a great view of the Empire State Building. We walked the runway and got plenty of photos taken and headed back to Times Square for another round. It was great to be there so late since we are usually both done before 7 or 8pm.

Times Square...Aug. 11, 12, & 13

Monday, Aug. 15
I took my kids to Cape May to visit one of best friends from high School (Frankie) and her family. I got to spend quality time with my kids on the Wild Wood boardwalk in a torrential downpour , got to chit chat at my friend's house over my very own Sangria, brought the kids jet skiing, sat by the pool for a bit, and finished the trip with a great dinner all together in Cape May.
Wednesday, Aug. 17
I Went to the East Village with my talented manager, Lori Michaels, her assistant Ashley, Choreographer Courtney, and Photographer Rula for a premiere of These Showers Can Talk, an improvisational comedy produced and directed by Gabrielle Lindau. Lori was wearing a black tank by designer Lois Elise from her "ONLY" Collection. Lois met us there for a photo-op outside the premiere. We left there starving and hit some awesome Mexican restaurant down the block.

I Made my first LOCAL appearance at LaReggia's Patio Party in Secaucus where there were friends and acquaintances from my own town, thanks to my friend Nicole Tuscano who was organizing the party. I was actually very nervous because it was so close to home and didn't know what to expect. The DJ played my song "Ride It Like A Cowgirl" as I walked in, the bartender, Dana, had a drink waiting, and the customers all took turns getting a photo with me. There was even a group of riders from the Bergen County Harley Dealership that had their own photographer who took photos of me out front on their Harleys. It was a fun night:)

Times Square Aug. 19, 20, & 21

Sunday, Aug. 21st
This was National "Go Topless Day" and New York City had a parade that started at Columbus Circle and went into Central Park for an opportunity for some of the women to talk about experiences they had being topless in public while the press photographed, videoed, and interviewed many people there. It seemed very Ironic for me to show up as "Naked Cowgirl" being I was one of the only women there with a top on! WTF TV ( interviewed me to find out why I wouldn't take my top off. As strange as it seemed, I actually got an email from a woman in Hawaii who attended a "Go Topless" event there, telling me my interview was inspiring. It was good to hear since I didn't know how the women would feel about my showing up with a top to this event. Here is the YouTube video link .

Times Square Aug. 24, 26, 30 & 31

Wednesday, Aug. 31st
Naked Cowboy was performing a wedding ceremony (an Ordained Minister)in Times Square for a couple, Jennifer and Graham Broban, from Scotland who wanted to renew their vows for their 15-year Anniversary. They didn't have any family or friends here in NY with them so we had a few guys videoing the ceremony. I had agreed to make a "Surprise" appearance as Naked Cowgirl and present the Bride with flowers from her best friend Joann from back home who couldn't attend. Jennifer was thrilled, but the "Surprise" was on me when I found out the my oldest son was one of the videographers. Of course my children know I'm the Naked Cowgirl, but it's not an easy thing for my sons to deal with and none of them have actually seen me in action. It was definitely an awkward moment, but I guess also an ice breaker for the situation.
It's been a Great Summer and I'm hoping the warm weather will stick around for a while!
