Palm Beach Turns out for Vanilla Ice and TMNT Turtle Power

Photo Jun 03, 6 54 22 AM

As soon as I heard that my wish-list future guest, Rob “Vanilla Ice” Van Winkle, was making the rounds on Tuesday to announce he was premiering Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows the following night, I knew I HAD to bring my son, Jordon. We are HUGE TMNT fans, and passing on certain pop culture loyalties to future generations is an American tradition. Rob made stops at both the KVJ Show & WPBF to make his announcement:

Paramount Pictures gave Rob (a longtime honorary Turtle) the opportunity to host his own premier of TMNT2 anywhere he wanted to. So, a true man of our town, Rob took the time out of his busy I Love the 90s tour schedule to hold his premier right in downtown West Palm Beach! I’ve seen him perform several times before, and Rob always gives 100%. So, he takes his tours very seriously. Even with a show scheduled the next day in Alabama, he still prioritized his hometown, inviting not only friends and family, but also bringing a bunch of kids through our sponsor, Little Smiles! And, to top it all off, he made it a free event for everyone who showed up–as many as 400 people!

He entered the theater with Wes Kain and all the Little Smiles kids and pumped up the crowd before the show:

Then, in true Vanilla Ice fashion, he took a selfie with the audience. Try to spot KVJ’s Kevin Rolston and ESPN’s Josh Cohen. (Jordon and I are just out-of-shot to the left.)

As the lights went down, Rob encouraged full attention to the movie screen, and the crowd was NOT disappointed! The action sequences are phenomenal, the graphics dazzled, the storyline was well-crafted, and notable actors such as Tyler Perry, Megan Fox, Laura Linney, and Will Arnett gave stellar performances. I was both wowed and laughing the whole time! There’s a surprise moment in the movie where Rob’s “Ice Ice Baby” plays, and the whole crowed cheered. What a fun showing!! Everyone–adults, kids, seniors, pets–should go see this movie, which premiers today. Particularly, if you were a fan of the first Transformers moving, you will LOVE TMNT2! (There is even a cameo by Bumblebee!!)

Afterwards, in the hallways of the City Place Muvico Theater, the fans gathered around for pics with the man of the hour. Of course, I had to carry the selfie tradition by utilizing Rob’s built-in selfie stick. (He truly does take great selfies!)

Andrea D’Marco Moves from the Rink to the Ring!!

Andrea D'Marco Ocampo hosting WWE NXT

For the last several years, Andrea D’Marco (formerly, “Andrea Ocampo”) has been delighting Florida Panthers hockey fans with her hosting skills–providing rink-side interviews, commentary, insights, and an unstoppably fun energy. Her infectious smile and confidence have garnered Andrea her own fan base, with a league of followers cheering this career contessa at every turn of her journey. Andrea’s career turns have been crushing the world of sports speedway–from time early in her career as a cheerleader for the Miami Dolphins through her time as the arena host with the Panthers. Recently, however, Andrea has moved on from hosting at the hockey rink to ruling the wrestling ring by to becoming the new ring announcer for WWE’s NXT!!

D’Marco’s steady rise to entertainment domination is a testament to the power of positivity–even in an industry that can be quite cutthroat. She is quick with a kind message, piece of advice, or virtual hug; and, she is constantly providing her followers with a host (no pun intended) of positive affirmations and inspirational quotes, like this:

Moreover, she continues to be a strong role model and champion for other women. When I was starting this once-fledgling podcast a couple of years ago and reached out to her to be a guest, she enthusiastically agreed! She came over, we shared some wine and giggles, and she gave my listeners some great insights into the hard work, determination, and lessons that have taken her to and through every career milestone.  (And, you would not believe what she puts in her coffee or what her movie guilty pleasure is, by the way!)

So, her move to WWE is another milestone of well-deserved success!! At WWE, Andrea has been able to continue to show off her reporting skills by conducting backstage interviews with such stars as Alex Riley:

What a pro! Andrea’s move to WWE leaves a hard-to-fill role with the Florida Panthers, and her departure was clearly bittersweet for all involved, as is evidenced by how she announced it:

By all accounts, Andrea is an asset to south Florida entertainment, and she will add professionalism, sass, and a sharp presence to the world of WWE. So, please add your voice to the chime of congratulations on her Twitter feed. CONGRATULATIONS, ANDREA!!

Enjoy!!
