"The Real World DC" Premiere Party

We had so much fun with real world cast member Josh Colon at Tattoo Bar for the Premiere Party of Real World DC.
TTS hosts' Vanessa and Markette sat down with Josh to talk about his newly formed band "Wicked Liquid" and how he is handling all the post premiere mayhem. While it's no secret that Josh loves the limelight we really had a good time getting to know the "Real" Josh--and as it turns out he is a very sweet guy. (he apologized in advance for offending anybody on the show or in Washington, and even gave a shout out to his mom)

Josh's "official bio" states that he is a 23-year-old Puerto Rican Italian from Philly with dreams of breaking into the music/entertainment industry. He has a weakness for the ladies and feels temptation constantly even though he has a girlfriend back home. (don't think he still does now though and he did mention that he loves Washingtonian women in fact he also mentioned something about a cougar?! You'll have to watch the show to find out more about that. But for now here are some pics to feed your appetite and stay tuned for our one-on-one (or rather two- on- one) interview with Mr. Colon himself.

Stay tuned for our interview with Josh on Comcast DCTV and online at

TTS Host Vanessa takes the plunge in Las Vegas!


And takes the ultimate plunge -- no she doesn't get married at an Elvis-themed wedding chapel -- she jumps out of a plane thousands of feet in the air!

Remember Markette on the
world's longest floorless roller-coaster?
But these daredevils aren't letting anything stand in their way--not a roller-coaster or 15,000 feet...See Vanessa take the plunge

The People Speak - New Documentary

THE TRAVELING TALK SHOW recently met up with "Good Will Hunting" and "American Pie" producer Chris Moore (in photo on right of Markette) and rapper-turned-actor Lupe Fiasco (in photo on left) to talk about their new documentary, "The People Speak."

So here's the deal: The documentary features dramatic performances chronicling the history of the United States from such celebrities as Matt Damon, Josh Brolin, Kerry Washington, Marisa Tomei, Don Cheadle, Jasmine Guy, Michael Ealy and musical performances from Bruce Springsteen and John Legend. Their performances will be woven together with archival footage and interviews (think MTV's Rockumentary meets History channel saga). Intrigued? Check out the trailer at :
