BA FAMILY SCENE
Star’s 40-ish was a rare Silverman family reunion.
STARSHINE ROUNDUP T
he silverman family made
a splash in Bryn Athyn this September as the children gathered to celebrate their mother Star’s 40-ish birthday. Every Silverman was believed to be in attendance, but since there are too many to count, this claim remains unconfirmed. Star was beaming, “It means so much to me to have what seems to be everyone I love here for my birthday!” “I would travel a thousand miles for my mother,” Celestyn Alpers told GAB! reporters as she stepped off the airplane. This clothing designer became a household name after the success of her girls’ clothing line inspired by daughter Ava (2). And with newborn Vaughn (3 months) as her muse, Alpers is already branching out into boys’ clothing. The reunion was a three-day extravaganza coordinated by renowned party-girl Aria Carter. Highlights of the non-stop party included a tour of the Historic
District by hovercraft, a personalized Cirque du Soleil performance (Star’que), and an unconventional rendition of “Happy Birthday” that moved Star, as well as any neighbors within earshot, to tears. With her flawless skin, svelte physique, and radiant smile, most would think this was Star’s 30th. Refuting rumors of botox, veneers, and lip injections, Star swears by an all-organic diet, lots of laughter, and easy access to grandchildren at all times. “They keep me young!” Star gushed to GAB! Sources say Star broke her diet to sample one of the most tempting indulgences at the event: signature cupcakes by gourmet baker Cairn Coy. Coy used frosting flavored with authentic crushed lavender flowers flown in from France. Star denied these claims until pictures surfaced of her with telltale crumbs on her lips. Hubby Ray quickly came to his sweetheart’s defense, saying, “Purple is her favorite color. It was basically a
booby trap.” Not wanting a repeat of her 30th, when her kids gave her a car for every year she had lived, Star One of the requested her gifts be a highlights of the little less lavish. Survivor weekend all-star Spring Silverman obliged and presented Star with an exquisite necklace made with precious stones selected by each of the siblings. Chyler Henderson, who just learned beading in second grade, strung the stones onto the necklace. The sibs are tight-lipped about plans for Star’s 50-ish. “It’s going to be hard to top this, so we don’t want her to get too excited,” admitted recently-married Skyler Silverman. But friends of Star told GAB! that she has already begun designing jubilee t-shirts and has purchased diamondstudded, 3-foot tall wax candles in the shape of a 5 and 0. GAB! MAGAZINE | 9

ollywood hot-mom megan allen—
whose headline credits include The King Clan Clash, In the Footsteps of Mrs. Thomas Kline, and Telling My Twins Apart: A True Hollywood Story—sat down with GAB! to talk about wigs, family dinner, and quilting. Q: You’ve starred on so many stages, we’ve lost count. Which was your favorite performance thus far? I’ve been lucky to work with lots of talented folks. Playing a young Meryl Streep in The Angels Wear HandMe-Downs was amazing. Q: Sources say you’re kind of a diva with hair and make-up. What’s the deal? There was a single incident. I’d rather not get into it, but I will just say that I know when a wig fits and when it doesn’t. Q: How do you keep your children so welladjusted while living in the spotlight? I try to fill their days with normal activities. For example, we eat dinner together as a family every night. No exceptions. Even if I have to fly the kids to Miami after their soccer practice, we always take that time to reconnect and push our vegetables around the plate. Q: What’s up next on your long list of projects? Is there an Oscar in your future? My next project is a dark comedy about the unexpected side of motherhood, loosely based on the life of singer/ songwriter Lori Odhner. It’s called Nine Ain’t Nothin’. We start filming next year, but I’m already training for it. I have been doing a lot of sewing. Winning an Oscar would be a bonus—I’m just grateful that I now know how to make quilts!

Guests barely felt their saddle sores as they partied the night away surrounded by a stunning mountain range that was enough to take your breath away. “I actually can’t breathe!” gasped Jenny Lindsay after three seconds of dancing at such a high altitude. Acclaimed photographer Michelle King took the bridal party over the river and through the woods to capture the rustic feel of the wedding. Florist Skye Kerr
crafted lovely bouquets and centerpieces in blushing pinks, creams, and yellow. The wedding was officiated by Eraserhead guitarist, Rev. Dave Roth. The bride wore a showstopping gown with sweetheart neckline, ruched bodice, and 3D floral detail. Her groom sported suspenders for the first time and liked them so much that he hasn’t taken them off since. “It was a little awkward during our Tahitian honeymoon,” admitted the new Mrs. Pitcairn. “You don’t really need suspenders to hold up a speedo.” The couple have settled into their sprawling Boulder ranch and have already started thinking about talking about someday maybe having babies.
HE DOES! When the wind picked up during the ceremony, Roland had to scream so Brooke could hear his vows. The Hair Connie asked Kaitlynd to style her hair. The older , who had worked with other famous brides like Kate and , was a bundle of nerves. “It felt like I was doing hair for the first time,” says Kaitlynd.

What She’s Not Saying Silverman and Poehler have a lot in common
BFFs Sasha & Amy
Though Saturday Night Live publicized the die-hard friendship of Amy Poehler and Tina Fey, recently Amy has been ditching Tina to rekindle her friendship with childhood bestie Sasha Silverman. Sasha and Amy first met on the set of a 1988 Kix commercial. When Amy landed the SNL gig, she begged Sasha to join her, but Sasha chose to follow her dreams of Bryn Athyn stardom, releasing the hit album Raised by a Star. But this summer the friends rediscovered how much they have in common when they bumped into one another at Bryn Athyn’s hottest new club: Steam. Since the ousting Fey has been trying to hang out with Chara Odhner.
Mysterious screenwriter Chara Odhner left the bright lights of BA for a quieter life in Philly. Now a top executive at a major ad agency, Odhner recently ditched her old apartment for a two-story loft with a $1.5M price tag. While Chara claims she hasn’t looked back, a close friend told GAB! that Odhner still has a picture of her family on her desk at work. Her roommate also overheard her humming “Little Lost Lamb” in the shower. Odhner’s rep, Doug Keith, declined to comment and tried to redirect the conversation by mentioning the fit of his pants.

Mayor McCurdy’s Big Plans Bryn Athyn Mayor Brent McCurdy set his sights much higher than Glencairn Tower
rent McCurdy started his term as mayor of Bryn Athyn with a bang, and he intends to go out with one, too! A source within the mayor’s office confirmed that there really is a rumor that McCurdy might throw his hat in the ring for the 2016 US presidential race. McCurdy’s publicist Monica Grant confirmed that while the mayor has not specifically said he intends to run, “he hasn’t ruled it out as a possibility” and is waiting to see how many Super PACs have his back before he commits to any national campaigns. Aurelle Genzlinger, the McCurdy’s neighbor, told GAB! that Brent’s wife Linda wouldn’t
mind upgrading her first-lady status. But Brent may need to put his house in order before he starts running with the big dogs. His biggest competition might be his charismatic son Blake. Even though he is just a college student, the younger McCurdy is already climbing the political ladder. Classmate Holly Adams informed GAB! that Blake has been planning a political coup of StuGo, at which point he will be poised to follow in daddy’s footsteps as the next mayor of Bryn Athyn.

There Goes the Neighborhood!
The Allens break ground on Cherry Lane.
Blake takes his future seriously.
ro golfer Darrell Allen and his wife, actress and model Kim Bowyer, bought property on Cherry Lane and are just getting around to building on it this year, sources close to the couple tell GAB! Construction has begun on the couple’s $30M mansion, which is rumored to include both an indoor golf course and pool. Not all neighbors are excited, though. Kim and Darrell are not the first Allens to move to Bryn Athyn and cause culture shock, and their presence is likely to bring a lot more activity than the quiet, family neighborhood is used to. Says next-door-neighbor Marguerite Herder, “Now that they’re doing construction, I’m never going to be able to sleep! Plus, the huge influx of paparazzi is going to make my life more complicated. Like I don’t have to deal with them hounding me enough ALREADY.” A rep for the Allens says that while the couple understands the neighbors’ reluctance to have them in town, they are confident that once people are invited to their regular block parties catered by their personal chef, Gordon Ramsay, the neighborhood will be glad to have them. Darrell is rumored to have said: “I beat Tiger Woods five years in a row. I can definitely make this new neighborhood work!”

! B A G MUSIC MANIA REUNION TOUR!
The band has a long tradition of and devotion to performing for free, largely because no one has ever wanted to pay them. Pictured here at one of their gigs: “Bunty Funt’s Big Night Out.”
After very little convincing, the band is back together A reunion of the 80’s rock band Eraserhead has been a long time coming. Fans have been patiently aging, and their waiting is about to pay off. Band members Ken Austin, Noel Rhodes, Dave Roth, Anders Alfelt, Owen Rose, Kurt Asplundh, Jeremy Rose, Bret Bostock, and Seth Pendleton are playing what their formergroupies-now-wives hope will be their final show this October in Bryn Athyn! Eraserhead began when its original members—Austin, Roth, Rhodes, and Alfelt—were in eighth grade. Their maturity levels came across loud and clear, but mostly loud, in their first album Living Scabs. Critics were putoff by the music, which Jeremy Rose compared to “some great lumbering beast that arises out of the mist without warning and goes on a rampage.” 32 |
Like something from an old sci-fi movie, the band kept growing and evolving. They added new members, including Jonathan Rose and Blane Bostock, and had guest appearances by Mark Wyncoll, Bon Jovi, Rachel Hotson, Michelle Synnestvedt, Elephant Man, Erin Fiedler, and Bruce Maciaczyk. They made Tony “Bones” Rose band manager because he had all of the passion but a complete lack of musical talent. Eraserhead by any other name is still Eraserhead, but that didn’t stop the group from trying out various options such as The Ticonderogas, #2 is Number One, and Gerson Antell and His Serenaders. After settling on the name Eraserhead, they adopted an unmistakable identity. As Ken Austin explained, “We enjoyed pushing the edge of acceptability, vol-
ume, and normalcy.” Kurt Asplundh fondly described it as “the world’s worst band,” but also added that it was “better value for your musical dollar.” The band exhibited a commitment to utopian leadership, which was more like a permanent state of anarchy as they constantly switched up lead vocalists and who played which instrument. This simultaneously prevented and promoted discord. Without any clear leader, Eraserhead has been able to stay together for decades, which is an achievement because, Seth Pendleton said, “We never really liked each other in the first place.” The motley Eraserhead crew will rally on Charter Day for what critics are calling “the caboose performance of the Little Engine That Couldn’t.”
Four Directions starts touring Nov. 1
FOUR DIRECTIONS OUT NOW
Sons of Art
Good Old-Fashioned Fashion The Sons of Art have finally re-released their new CD after having to recall three million original copies due to an unfortunate typo. The entire album is barbershop gold with each song a cut above the last. By the time you get to the last track, you will feel like you’ve hit the
a cappella jackpot. While they stay true to their traditional heartwarming harmonies, the Sons also incorporate new-fangled touches like tasteful beat-boxing and frequent bow-tie wardrobe changes. Don’t miss the bonus blooper track!
OUT OCT 20
Pack Light but Bring Everything Starting with it’s title and ending with Track 13, Ryan Tennis’ new album is a contradiction in the best sense of the word. The soothing melodies are complemented by vocalist’s trademark backup sneezes, which are sure to alarm and delight. Despite Tennis’ advice, listeners will want to leave everything behind as they embark on this musical journey to nowhere. Grammy-winning producer/songwriter Scot Sax says, “He has what you can’t buy.” Except you can. So buy his album today!
Fans will sob uncontrollably when they hear these adorable child prodigies perform live in sold-out venues across Bryn Athyn. A boy band in the most literal sense, this up-and-coming group’s set list includes their first hit, “I’ll Like Them Eventually, But Girls Are Just Okay For Now,” as well as their current chart-topper, “You DO Know You’re Beautiful Because You’re Self-Aware.”
Musical maverick Reade “Fewsh” McCardell is going global for his first-ever tour! Not wanting to leave former McCardell Fresh Cut Salads band mates behind, McCardell hired them as backup dancers and pyrotechnicians. The tour starts with a bang in Beijing, where McCardell hopes to quickly improve his Mandarin so he can serenade his audience with tunes other than “Where Is The Library” and “Thank You, Brown Dog.”
With the fashion style of Amy Winehouse and the musical talent of Hannah Montana, Lindsay Kloc has crafted Kloc a terrifyingly good poppunk album. Her upcoming tour is designed to confound audiences, who won’t be certain if they are screaming at her or with her. Frequent and increasingly strange wardrobe changes will add to the bewilderment and delight. Purchase tickets now for the show many have described as a “haunted sing-a-long!” GAB! MAGAZINE
YEAR’S BEST MOVIES
Carla Odhner’s sophomore debut proves that the actress/model/ singer/director/stuntwoman still has what it takes.
BRIDGING THE GAP OUT NOW
Gentle Bean The autobiographical film chronicles Odhner’s tragic but ultimately optimistic struggle with her Jekyll-and-Hyde personality. On her bad days, this L.A. snob is oblivious to the way her gruff, bordering-on-vicious temperament metaphorically maims anyone who gets in her way. But occasionally, Odhner’s wild personality is tamed. Her insatiable appetite for meat changes to a preference for honey pots, and her penchant for terrorizing campgrounds switches to an innate awareness that only she can prevent forest fires. Audiences will be especially touched by the scene when a rampaging Odhner immediately softens at the sight of her best friend Christopher Rubin. Critics are already buzzing about the sequel, Mama Bear.
Starring Stewart Farmer and Kristine Medley After a devastating earthquake, an architect spends four years and three months devising a method to cross the abyss that separates him from his true love.
MARILYN: WHAT A GAL Starring Brittany Odhner
Director Skye Kerr speculates what Monroe’s life would have been like had she left show biz and moved to the Rocky Mountains.
OUT IN JULY
The Motherland After capturing much of Archibald Ollennu’s mesmerizing life on camera, awardwinning director Adam Cole wove the colorful stories of this Ghanaian native into a rich tapestry that falls just short of a masterpiece. The documentary follows Ollennu from his boyhood in rural Africa, through the twists and turns of his charmed life, to the present day in the Motor City, where Arch is living the dream. Audiences will think they are fully satisfied by Ollennu’s larger-than-life charisma, but they won’t be able to say no when the Cole boys (Thane, Adam, and Josh) enter the picture, and they too will fall in love with Arch’s American princess, Nicole Pitcairn. Critics promise that you will want to ride off into the sunset with these characters and say the best part about this story is that it’s “for real.” 34 |
ON THE FENCE
Starring Angella Irwin A talented musician’s wavering ways have gotten her only borderline success, when a mind-blowing soup recipe changes her life.
