Wanted to say hello! Hope all is well. Looks like Paradise Hotel 2 is not coming this summer...For better or for worse, we were most likely the first and only. Anyway, the legacy lives on...
This Thursday, in addition to being my brother, webmaster extraordinaire Phil's birthday, is also the first Reality Cares event in which I am participating. It's a high ticket price but goes to a great cause...for more info, please see below, and if you're in the NYC area, perhaps I'll see you on Thursday.
PH Where-are-they-now Trivia-of-the-month: Keith and Tara are no longer dating, and Scott and Holly are no longer dating. The only PH couple to remain, nearly one year later from the first episode...Amy and Zack. God bless.
All the best to you,
