Queen crowns Philly teen
Queen Latifah made North Philly's own Denzel Austin Thompson quite the happy urban farmer.
Thompson, you might remember from my column, is the teen who transformed a North Philly lot into an urban garden, teaching local kids how to till. Nick Cannon decided to recognize his efforts with a TeenNick HALO Award that came with a prize including a celeb mentor. Thompson's famous friend is Queen, which she will announce on her show, aptly titled "The Queen Latifah Show," tomorrow at 3 p.m. on CBS3.
"Denzel's the one changing the world right now," Latifah said. "It's in his hands and his generation's hands. I'm really proud of him because when the world gets to see people like him, it shows that his generation is not just about texting all the time or doing a crazy dance. They have gifts and abilities, and they're connecting people in a way that no generation will ever be able to do."
Watch Thompson collect his honor Sunday at 8 p.m. on Nick at Nite.
Philly's own Alicia DiMichele and Natalie Guercio will be hanging out with Renee Graziano, Drita D'Avanzo and "Big Ang" on the upcoming season of VH1's "Mob Wives."
DiMichele's appearance was well-known, considering the People Paper's own William Bender investigated the feds' interest in her involvement with hubs Eddie "Tall Guy" Garofalo. When not being the subject of reality television, DiMichele owns Addiction Boutique, with locations in Cherry Hill and South Philly.
Ex-"Mob Wives" regular Karen Gravano was apparently ousted from the show to make way for DiMichele. Gravano's pops, Sammy "The Bull," allegedly orchestrated a hit, ordered by John Gotti, on DiMichele's father-in-law, Edward Garafolo Sr., in 1990.
But Guercio is a new name on the list. She's the scion of the Carto Funeral Home (2212 S. Broad St.) family. Guercio is the single mom to Nunzio. From the sound of it, Guercio's story line will focus on her attempts to date outside the mob lifestyle.
The new season premieres Dec. 5 at 10 p.m.
TLo get hitched
Celebrity fashion bloggers, and Philly denizens, Tom and Lorenzo (tomandlorenzo.com) got married at Old City's Bistro 7 (7 N. 3rd St.) this weekend, with flowers courtesy of Old City Flowers and a gorgeous cake from the Whipped Bakeshop. They announced their engagement via Twitter after the Defense of Marriage Act was deemed unconstitutional by the Supreme Court. Congrats, boys!
