‘Funniest Celebrity in Washington’: VIPs still rally to fundraiser despite little aid to charity
Charities are taught to say thank you and nothing more. Its unfortunate. One Funniest Celebrity-branded show was a winner for charity: a 2010 Baltimore event benefiting the University of Maryland Childrens Hospital that grossed $50,000. But in that case, Siegels 501(c)3 was not involved; he was simply contracted to round up talent and the charity controlled all the money, organizer Phyllis Rabinowitz said. Michele S. Jones performs at last weeks Funniest Celebrity. (Roxanne Roberts / The Washington Post) Siegel said that recent tax records reflect a couple of bad seasons, not indicative of the 19 years. . . [but] of a few charities that really sold no tables and no tickets. He added in an e-mail that his events reap substantial free publicity and connections for the charities, which he said received some extra donations from the event directly from patrons and thus were not reflected in tax records. But, I offer that show to a charity to use in their fundraising, he wrote. I am not the fundraiser for the charity. Karen Friedman, executive vice president of this years beneficiary, the Pension Rights Center, said that Ralph Nader a first-time contestant recommended her organization. Members of her staff raised $12,500 (donors wrote checks to Funniest Celebrity), and she hopes to get $10,000 to $12,000.
We’re in the process of decorating our house right now. Shaya wants to be a ninja, Rain wants to be a vampire, Neriah will be Minnie Mouse and Sierra has a handmade Sponge Bob costume. And, of course, it’ll all probably change the day before.” Q: Describe a typical day in your household. What time does your day start and end? A: “Never a typical day. (At) 6:30 a.m., the alarm goes off and I start waking up the kids. First things first: coffee! I make lunches, breakfast to go and we’re out the door by 7:10 a.m. I carpool four kids, plus a friend, and I try to get my ‘me’ time in by teaching my own booty burn class in the morning. “On show days I head to the ballroom straight from school drop-off for a busy day of script meetings, rehearsals, two hours of hair and make-up, a live show from 5 to 7 p.m. I’m lucky to make it home by my kids’ bedtimes. “If it’s not a ‘DWTS’ day, I work out, have meetings consisting of ModernMom.com responsibilities, entertainment industry demands, school meetings, grocery shopping, the occasional coffee or meal with a friend, family dinner at 6 p.m., homework, 8:30 p.m.
Celebrity Baby Scoop: Brooke Burke-Charvet launches Caelum fitness line
Time to say goodbye: Golf legend Tony Jacklin and dance partner Aliona Vilani were the first pair voted off Strictly Come Dancing on Sunday night Jacklin – who came joint bottom on the Strictly leaderboard last weekend and bottom last night – performed a golf-themed Charleston again to It Don’t Mean A Thing (If It Ain’t Got That Swing) by Chantz. But Strictly judges Craig Revel Horwood, Darcey Bussell and Bruno Tonioli all chose to save Macdonald and Manrara, who danced the Tango to Applause by Lady Gaga. Head Judge Len Goodman said: ‘Tony you’ve been one of my golfing heroes all of my life, sadly I have to say I would have gone with Julien and Janette, but you’re still one of my heroes.’ Below par: The pair’s golf-themed Charleston failed to impress the judges ‘It’s been so much fun!’ Tony admitted he was intimidated by the show, but didn’t regret having taken part Dance off: Tony had to take on Julien Macdonald and his partner Janette Manrara during the dance off Speaking after he exited the show, 69-year-old Jacklin, described as the most successful British golf player of his generation, confessed to feeling ‘petrified’ on Saturday before going on stage to perform the Charleston. ‘It was a very, very intimidating situation going on stage in front of 10 million people – I felt like running away half an hour before going on last night but there was security all over the place,’ he joked. ‘That’s the feeling you get, you are just completely petrified.’ Positive: Julian remained in high spirits despite discovering he must dance again The nerves: Jacklin appeared anxious before discovering his fate Support: Tess and the audience showed their supported for Tony ahead of final performance An experience: When he discovered he had to leave the show Tony reflected positively on the experience Relief: Julian was delighted to make it through to the next round of the show But he said the experience had been ‘very positive’ and he had no regrets about taking part in Strictly. ‘I did not want to be the first one out. I gave it my best shot but it was not good enough, so you have to take your punishment, if you like, but overall, it was a very positive experience and I shall look back and think “well I am glad I did that'”,’ he said. ‘If I put my hand on my heart, it was hard work, it was exhausting but I am very, very glad I did it. “I did give it my best. I appreciated what those pros go through and their expertise and their dedication – and meeting all the other celebrities. Last dance: Tony was in high spirits as he performed for the final time First off: The contestants look nervous as they gear up to find out their fate Elated: Deborah Meaden looks ecstatic as she discovers she’s through to next round of the show She’s done it: Susanna Reid couldn’t help but smile as she finds out she’s through ‘It was a wonderful time and a wonderful few weeks.’ Saturday night’s show saw singer Sophie Ellis-Bextor, dressed in a 1920s-style gold tasselled Flapper dress, score four nines from the judges after performing the Charleston with dance partner Brendan Cole. But Jacklin, who is originally from Scunthorpe in North Lincolnshire, came under fire for his Charleston routine, in which he used a golf club as a prop and wore a bright diamond-patterned golfing style top with plus fours and diamond patterned socks. She deserves it: Vanessa looked close to tears when she discovered she had made it through The Bond girl lives: Fiona Fullerton will be back on the dance floor next week Tonioli remarked: ‘The most exciting thing in that was the jumper,’ and Revel Horwood added: ‘The Charleston should be lively, energetic, frenetic.
