Palm’ butt with sticky fingers

Chazz Palminteri. “Bullets Over Broadway” was nominated for an Oscar. Best known for his “A Bronx Tale”.

“I wanted to act at age 10, write poetry at age 15, then I would steal things. Dad was a bus driver for $48 a week. The house was on the fifth floor, no elevator, for $36 a week months. The Grand Concourse used to be beautiful. I used to steal furniture from the hall. We’d go in with a friend and come out with sofas and tables. Eventually, the buildings were chained with things. Once a detective who visitor to our house said, “Wow, that’s a better decoration than my house.”

“Graduating from theater school, I like to read. Eventually, I wrote plays. I wrote the musical, the movie and the show “A Bronx Tale”. I’m currently doing a one-man show with a Q&A afterwards. And just one night at the town hall for his birthday. I still like it. Like people in Wisconsin and Utah who don’t know the Bronx.

“I also have two five-star restaurants. Chazz Palminteri on West 46th Street, another one in White Plains and I was on TV in “Godfather of Harlem” and “Gravesend.” “

Love it, look at it, but to invite it, start by chaining the coffee table.


Fight for your faith

Steve Bannon – old school, navy, multiple wives, old country, knows the Fighting Irish.

Trump’s former White House mastermind, who now has two contempt of Congress convictions, is fighting for executive privilege. His battle was to preserve it. His case is that he is brave enough to fight to protect the rights and privileges of the US President. And willing to face a few years behind bars to prove it.

His message to you is, “I will not back down and will never back down.

Home phone?

I called Huma recently. A few days later, I was at an event and I tried her ex Anthony Weiner to repeat exactly what I said to Huma. So no one can say that he is not busy with this Weiner.


Stars and jokes

What is wrong with our United States?

Put the ice on the nice

New York Times obituary Penelope Green, who called me a lifelong friend of the late international designer Carleton Varney, wrote about me as a “caustic” New York columnist. To me? Caustic? What does he call caustic?


With the new musical “KPOP” opening at Circle in the Square this fall, the Mets are treating star Luna to a night of Korean heritage at home plate at Citi Field. Owner Steve Cohen’s suite even serves plates of kimchi. . . Paul Newman’s doc made a memory: Skipping intermission at Lincoln Center, he went to the Empire Hotel for a beer. Two women sent a towel for his signature. Instead, he bought them a round, instructed the bartender, “Put it on my check,” and then walked away. Told to enjoy ballet, she rolled her eyes and said, “I’ll try it.”


Speaking of booze, this poor soul pulled into an East Side joint, rested his head on the bar, and ordered a double bourbon. “No,” said the bartender. “You can’t even hold your head up.” “OK,” said the drunk, “then cut my hair.”

Only in New York, kids, only in New York.
