In 1967, at The Flamingo Hotel, Las Vegas. Florence was sent home during this gig and Cindy Birdsong, who had been secretly rehearsing with Diana & Mary, stepped in. Florence would never return to the stage as a Supreme.

Three years later the group would record their final performance on January 14, 1970 at The Frontier Hotel. “Farewell,” a double-lp, is the rare Motown live album that is great from start to finish. Listening to it, it’s hard to believe they were barely speaking to each other at this point.

It’s been a journey, I only cherish the heartache. The labor of love was to create, product was the satisfaction. I’m was once told a debt collector couldn’t design ‪#‎sunglassses‬, behold Vintage Frames, I guess they were wrong. Overcoming all odds is possible, all it takes is the determination to survive.
Mountains can be climbed, slopes become easier on the knees after you journey for a while. We are what we make ourselves be, nobody was born with their profession. If you …have a disadvantage, all the more reason to work harder. Price your own worth, find someone that values it enough to pay it. Realize your destiny, most importantly that it is in your hands. If you are at the mercy of others, it’s time to switch games. Your present is a result of progress, your future is the result of determination.
Last time I was told I couldn’t I turned it into my future. On February 17th, I am proud to unveil Vintage Frames. It’s ‪#‎Thursday‬ pay homage to what inspired you even if it was fucking negative. Next week we show the world we could, more importantly that we did! With the unveiling of the Vintage Frames By Corey Shapiro line I have most importantly shown myself it could be done. The future has been in your hands this whole time, it’s time you realize what you have been holding all along. ‪#‎morninginspiration‬ ‪#‎vintageframes‬

Geraldine McGee Rosenthal: The Real Ginger!

frank-and-geri-rosenthal

 

Geraldine (Geri) McGee Rosenthal (May 16, 1936 – November 9, 1982) was the second wife of Las Vegas sports handicapper, Frank Rosenthal. She provided the basis for the character of “Ginger,” portrayed by Sharon Stone in the 1995 movie Casino. Geri and her sister, Barbara, grew up in the Sherman Oaks community of Los AngelesSan Fernando Valley and went to Van Nuys High School with Robert Redford and Don Drysdale.

Geri started going out with Lenny Marmor in high school. Their daughter, Robin L Marmor, was born December 27, 1957, in Los Angeles, and Lenny, who never married her though he was married three times to other women, talked Geri into moving to Las Vegas. Geraldine met Anthony Spilotro while at a convention in Atlantic City. She had an affair with him at that time. Later, after marrying Rosenthal the affair with Spilotro would resume.

When Frank met Geri, she had been hustling in Las Vegas for close to eight years. She owned her own house and was raising her 11-year-old daughter Robin, who was fathered by her high school sweetheart Lenny Marmor. Geri supported her ailing mother, Alice Pollock McGee, and her sister, Barbara Stokich (b. Feb 6 1934, d. May 7, 2000), who had been abandoned with two young sons after her husband left. In 1954, Geri’s aunt (her father’s sister) received a large inheritance.

Geri’s aunt offered to send Geri to Woodbury Business School, as she had Geri’s sister Barbara, but Geri wanted to go to UCLA or USC. Instead she got a job at Thirty Drugs, then as a teller for Bank of America. Lenny would visit Geri and their daughter, usually for two or three days, often with the intention to borrow money for a “surefire” business deal. Occasionally, her father, Roy McGee, a California auto mechanic long separated from her mother, would visit. Besides Marmor and Rosenthal, Geri was also seeing John Hicks. Johnny Hicks was about 10 years younger than Geri. She adored Hicks and some believed he would have married her, except he had very rich parents who objected to the relationship.

The Hicks owned the Algiers Hotel and the Thunderbird Casino and didn’t want the couple to wed. Johnny Hicks had a $1,000-a-month trust fund and would have had it taken away if he married Geri. Johnny liked to act as a tough guy and hung around Downtown Las Vegas with a crew that used to beat up prostitutes.

 

Frank and Geri were married on May 1, 1969. They had two children, Steven and Stephanie. Their divorce was final January 16, 1981. Geraldine Rosenthal died from a drug overdose Nov. 9, 1982, and was buried at Mount Sinai Cemetery in Los Angeles. Frank Rosenthal spent $50,000 to have a private autopsy conducted.

Cirque du Soleil: Death In Mid Air.

130630205501-cirque-performer-killed-story-top

 

CNN) — A performer from Cirque du Soleil died in a weekend accident during a show at a Las Vegas casino, authorities said Sunday.

The performer, 31-year-old Sarah Guyard, was pronounced dead shortly before midnight Saturday, the Clark County, Nevada, medical examiner’s office told CNN. The cause of death had not been determined Sunday afternoon.

The accident happened during the show’s finale, said Cirque Du Soleil spokeswoman Renee-Claude Menard. During the scene, performers are suspended up to 50 feet in the air on lines controlled by wireless remote controls, according to the troupe’s website.

Guyard “was being hoisted up the side of the stage and then just plummeted down,” witness Dan Mosqueda told the Las Vegas Sun newspaper.

“Initially, a lot of people in the audience thought it was part of the choreographed fight. But you could hear screaming, then groaning

Guyard was born in Paris, specialized as an acrobat and aerialist and had performed for more than 20 years, according to a website for Cirquefit, which describes itself as a circus and fitness program for kids.

She taught classes through that program. Parents of some of her students left messages on the group’s Facebook page remembering Guyard.

“No words. My boys loved every moment in Miss Sarah’s class. Deepest sympathies to her loved ones,” wrote one.

“We will miss her terribly! She was an amazing teacher!” wrote another.

Guyard, nicknamed “Sassoon,” was part of the original cast of “Ka,” the long-running Cirque du Soleil show at the MGM Grand hotel and casino, Cirque du Soleil founder Guy Laliberté said in a statement issued Sunday.

The show has been canceled indefinitely, and the company is “working with the appropriate authorities and have offered our full cooperation,” Laliberté said.

“We are reminded, with great humility and respect, how extraordinary our artists are each and every night. Our focus now is to support each other as a family, ” he added.

The title of the show comes from an ancient Egyptian belief in the “ka,” a spiritual copy of the body that’s with people in this life and the next, according to the company.

Cirque du Soleil, which translates as “Circus of the Sun” from French, is headquartered in Montreal. It was founded in 1984.

Mike Tyson: Happy BIRTHDAY!

Las Vegas: Sin City Heat Wave!

By Andrew Freedman

A brutal and potentially historic heat wave is in store for the West as parts of Nevada, Arizona and California may get dangerously hot temperatures this weekend and into next week. In fact, by the end of the heat wave, we may see a record tied or broken for the hottest temperature ever recorded on Earth.

The furnace-like heat is coming courtesy of a “stuck” weather pattern that is setting up across the U.S. and Canada. By early next week, the jet stream — a fast-moving river of air at airliner altitudes that is responsible for steering weather systems — will form the shape of a massive, slithering snake with what meteorologists refer to as a deep “ridge” across the Western states, and an equally deep trough setting up across the Central and Eastern states.

All-time records are likely to be threatened in normally hot places — including Death Valley, Calif., which holds the record for the highest reliably recorded air temperature on earth at 134°F. That mark was set on July 10, 1913, and with forecast highs between 126°F to 129°F this weekend, that record could be threatened. The last time Death Valley recorded a temperature at or above 130°F was in 1913.

Las Vegas and Phoenix, two cities well-known for their hot and dry summers, are also predicted to approach record territory. Last Vegas’ all-time high temperature record is 117°F and Phoenix’s high is 122°F. Excessive heat warnings are in effect in both cities from Friday through Monday.
