Buble's chips ahoy
If you ever find yourself needing to get crooner Michael Bublé a gift, go for Herr's ketchup-flavored potato chips.
Jennifer Arrigo, the public relations manager of the Nottingham-based chip company sent Buble a "truck load" (a Herr's truck-shaped box) to celebrate his performance at the Wells Fargo Center this past weekend. Apparently, the chips are mega popular in Buble's native Canada.
Buble asked Comcast-Spectacor employees - event managers Brooke Cima and Pete Zingoni and marketing manager Georgieann Michels - if they ever tried the chip. When they said no, Buble, who I've heard is a super nice guy, immediately popped open a bag and had everyone feast on the chips.
Did you catch Levittown's Matthew Schuler on last night's episode of the "The Voice"? Pennsbury High School alum Schuler simply killed it on Young the Giants' "Cough Syrup," making the judges - Maroon 5's Adam Levine, CeeLo Green, Christina Aguilera and Blake Shelton - all turn their chairs around on the premiere episode of the fifth season.
This kid is definitely going far.
And Justice for Philly
Metallica bassist Robert Trujillo will be in Philly in the beginning hours of Friday (12:01 a.m. to be exact) to introduce the concert film, "Metallica: Through the Never."
Trujillo will be at the AMC Franklin Mills to preview the new IMAX movie, which is a hybrid concert-fiction saga. Interspersed with live performances are scenes of roadie Trip ( Dane DeHaan), who is sent on a seemingly routine mission that turns surreal.
The movie officially hits theaters Friday.
Dee Wallace gets happy
Actress Dee Wallace ("E.T.," "Cujo") wants you to be happy, and she'll show you how at a seminar today in Doylestown.
Wallace inspires at the seminar, sharing her secrets to inner peace.
"I dropped to my knees after the death of my husband and I said I don't want to be angry anymore, I don't want to be a victim anymore," Wallace, whose brother lives in New Hope, told me. "We've all been abandoned, we've all been abused by the world. If we keep holding onto the story, we can't start a new one."
The public seminar will be held tonight from 6:30 to 9:30 at the Bucks County Boy Scouts of America (1 Scout Way, Doylestown) with private sessions tomorrow. Tickets are $55. Call 215-348-5755 for more details.
OUT AND ABOUT
* To celebrate a rare weekend off, Eagles (including some former ones) Jon Dorenbos, Jevon Kearse, Lito Sheppard, Reggie Brown and Jeff Thomason dined at the Continental in Atlantic City. Brunch offerings varied from huevos rancheros to chicken and waffles to Continental's lobster mac 'n' cheese.
