Farewell to RNN09.29.08

If you didn’t know, the Journal News has ended its partnership with RNN-TV, meaning your beloved Suburbarazzi will no longer be making weekly appearances on the network.tjndc5-5gahkbqj3knyn5emant_original.jpg

We’ll still be cranking out the snark here on the blog, but we’re free-agents in the TV world now. Access Hollywood, you know you want us.

Also, this week was our final Suburbarazzi segement with RNN’s Stacy-Ann Gooden. I wanted to give her a big hug and throw together a Best of Stacy-Ann reel, but since her departure wasn’t quite official when we taped the piece, we couldn’t put any of that in there. But as my Chris so eloquently put it in his post yesterday, working with Stacy-Ann has been one of the great joys of our jobs for the last year. Every Tuesday afternoon was a little brighter because of her.

Plus, I’m happy to report, after a string of recent, uncharacteristic wrong answers, Stacy-Ann got her final Suburbarazzi quiz correct!

Can you get this multiple-choice question right, too?

Which Lower Hudson Valley celebrity told Fox News that they’d move to Canada if Barack Obama was elected president?

A. Rip Torn
B. Bonnie Fuller
C. Donald Trump
D. Stephen Baldwin

Answer after the break and at the end of the video clip.

Thank you, Stacy-Ann Gooden!07.15.08

Today is the last day that feature reporter and weathercaster Stacy-Ann Gooden will be working for RNN’s “NewsCenter Now,” and we here at Suburbarazzi owe her a huge debt of gratitude.

stacy-ann.jpgTrue fans of this blog and its podcast know Stacy-Ann as the regular moderator of our RNN Suburbarazzi segments. She’s always upbeat, lively and on the pulse of celebrity news, even if she doesn’t always know the answers to our impossibly hard quiz questions every week. A consummate pro, she made all of the Suburbarazzi writers feel comfortable and at home in the Rye Brook studios, whether the cameras were on or off.

I’m particularly thankful for her encouragement for me to conduct a segment on my own for the first time when I landed my exclusive interview with “American Idol” finalist Kimberley Locke. Just another example of how selfless and thoughtful she’s been to all of us here.

Some fun and impressive facts about Stacy-Ann: In addition to her diverse reporting experience at RNN and Fox 5, she is a model who’s appeared in Oprah, Lucky and King magazines. She also competed in her native country, Jamaica, as a finalist in the Miss Jamaica Universe Pageant, and graduated magna cum laude from St. John’s University. Now you know! And knowing is half the battle.

Stacy-Ann told me this afternoon she’s going to take some time off. Whatever she’s doing next, we at Suburbarazzi wish her the best and will remain in touch.
