Day 2 in NYC I got up very early to join the audience at CBS for the Live With Kelly and Ryan show. I waited outside with about 200 other people to get inside the studio and ended up being there for almost 5 hours! The guests on the show were Rosanne Barr and Tonya Harding. and afterwards, they recorded a show to air the next day (Friday May 4th)
All in all it was a pretty good time.
Here’s the line waiting to see Live with Kelly and Ryan
LOL.. Please don’t hit the hosts with your balls
Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest chatting
Look… There’s Tonya Harding
The studio from above…
Michael Gelman looks on from the wings
The second taping was a 1 year anniversary celebration of Kelly and Ryan working together…
After the Kelly and Ryan show.. I took a quick stroll through Central Park and Times Square. Where do all those people work???
Had to take a break for a cold beer and a hot empanada in the middle of Times Square
Later that night, I hit a couple cool spots with a friend of mine. This is the Chelsea Pier Driving Range. It was about 85 degrees! This driving range sits on barges on the Hudson River.. The Golf Club has 4 levels that you can hit balls off of. Can you see that luxury mega yacht docked just behind the back fence? That yacht is almost as long as a football field! That is the yacht of Augusto Perfetti who owns Italian Air Chewing Gum and Mentos candy. It’s name is “Air” and it’s worth about 120 MILLION!!! It’ll only cost you about $250,000.00 a week if you’d like to charter it. Can you see the helicopter on the back?
