OH NOOO! Here They Come

Comments and emails from some crazed VDO fans . It seems that every time I write stories the crazies come out. Are you looking for the inside truth to our family? Well, don't come here. I will never post personal events about my family and would never be as ignorant to as just change the names. These are my stories. They are based on friends of mine that I have met through my travels and life. I have other visitors to this site that actually have a good time with them. I have received some lovely comments. So let me get this straight. Pinky Traz is not me. It is a charactor based on one of my friends. No, my friend doesn't have a famous brother, but I just thought it was a funny thing to say. Well, I guess I will just cut that part out of my character. Then will you please just, "GO AWAY". You know who you are. Let the rest of us have some fun!

Happy Thanksgiving

How do we celebrate Thanksgiving on the beach? Well, the same as most of you all in the North, South, East and West. A family gathering with Turkey and all the works except we are wearing strapless dresses, shorts and tank tops. The men look so dashing in their Tommy Bahamas and Quiksilver Shorts. We all talk about how thankful we are to have each other. Mom and her girlfriend Sara served Thanksgiving to the homeless vets yesterday. Whenever I think about those families that live in the woods of Ft. Myers, I become even more thankful that I am able to have a roof over my head and food in my mouth. So lets all pray for the less fortunate and give thanks for what we have.
Happy Thanksgiving!

Short Film

Hello all,
I am currently working on a new short film. I have some great people involved. It is about a character I made up years ago, named Pinky Traz. It will be a mocumentary about her life. She is a blogger and soon I will be providing a link to her blog. I hope you all enjoy her as I have creating her. Many of her blogs you will probably recognize from about four years ago. It will be fun recreating them and one day you will be able to actually view them. There is also a band involved called, The Flying Rodents. I have been making up fictitious characters for years so as not to name the real people in the real scenarios I have written about in the past. This is going to be a fun project seeing these characters come to life. I'll keep you posted on the Pinky Traz blog.

Health Care Reform

I was speaking with a woman I know about health insurance and she was worried that if the bill passed that she would lose her insurance. I asked how much she paid and she replied with, "Well we only pay part of it, which is 500.00". "That's part of it, jeez", I interrupted. She said that it normally costs over 900.00 a month. Now, that is nice that this person can afford such insurance, but there are millions of people that need that kind of money to put a roof over their heads, and food in their mouths. I wouldn't want her to lose her insurance, but I would like that people have a choice in the matter. Not one of the famous people I know including actors, musicians, producers, and directors are against passing this bill. Why? Because they are aware that the majority of our country is not as fortunate as they are. They are willing to give back to the public that helped make them wealthy to begin with. Why can't others such as Lawyers, Doctors (well my doctor is for the bill), wealthy business men and woman, bankers, etc. feel the same way. If it wasn't for the public wanting their services they would not be where they are today. Just a thought to all of you out there that are afraid of change. Change is tough. I always looked at it as a caterpillar that goes through it's metamorphis. Struggling in it's cocoon, but then emerging as a beautiful, free, healthy butterfly. Please give this option a chance.

NIFF gala

Well, the gala was a hoot. Camera's flashing as you walked down the short red carpet. News stations interviewing people. Everyone dressed in their best gala attire. Cuties walking around with trays of hor'deurves and free drinks for the VIP's. Which included me. lol. It was nice to have a film screening there, so I had something to talk about other than being known as Vincent D'Onofrio's sister. The best part of it all was the film, "The Cove". A riveting documentary about the slaughter of Dolphin in Japan. It was so sad to watch, but one shouldn't turn a blinds eye to it. The film has already made a difference, but there is still much work to be done to save these exquisite creatures. It actually reminded me of the holocaust, that's how devastating it was to watch. K, on a happier note. It was a good time. For those of you that live in the area, don't forget my film, The Chocolate Fetish is screening on Sunday at 245pm at Silverspot Cinema in Mercato.

In the pics, Myra founder of the Naples Philharmonic, and a fan of Vincents.

VIP Gala

It's been years now since I live in Florida, that I've been invited to a black tie event. Looking through my gowns stashed away at my mom's house was very interesting. I don't know why I possibly thought I could get my new over 50 bod in anyone of them. They were size 2. I could wear them as sleeves. So off I went to find a gown. I had my eye on one at my friend's store that I mentioned on here a month or so ago. I believe it was the one I was holding up in the pic. It was still there, so my mom bought it for me as a Birthday present. Now shoes. Oui Vei! Being famous on foodstamps (just kidding about the foodstamps, but close) you have to make due with what you have. So is it silver or black heels? I'll bring both. Thank god jewelry is one size fits all. I have to go teach the kiddies in Naples that afternoon, so I thought it would be a good excuse to hang with my childhood friend, Fawn, until the event that evening. She owns a beauty shop called First Street Salon. She will do my hair and makeup. Thank you Fawn. The event is the opening night gala of The Naples International Film Festival. Coctail party and a film called, "The Cove". Time to make the mustang shine for the valet. Just hope I can get out of the car gracefully. lol. Wow, my ticket says Orchestra Center Front. Not bad for a famous person's sibling. Actually, I do have a film there and I am on the board of advisories, so that may have something to do with the invite. All in all it should be an interesting evening as Naples plays Hollywood for the night. I hope I have pics for my next post. That's if I don't forget the camera.
