Came Jubera’s $800 book bid, Bobby tunes out J.R. and Vince Vaughn cleans his plate

Atlanta author Came Jubera‘s book “Must Win: A Season of Survival For any Town and it is Team” doesn’t formally debut until Sept. 4, but it’s already scored a touchdown in Valdosta, the pig skin-partial Georgia town the veteran reporter chronicles within the book. The 2009 summer time, in the Valdosta High football coach’s request, Jubera sent their own dog-eared advance readers paperback evidence of the work lower propose using the team’s annual fundraising event in the Valdosta Country Club.

“I figured it could draw in $20 or $30,” Jubera informs us. “The coach left us a voicemail message later that night stating that things got so crazy he even needed to drop from the putting in a bid.” Winning bid? $800.

Jubera cracks: “I may re-think the book’s current $25 cost point.” Atlantans, meanwhile, obtain first crack at snapping up copies of “Must Win” on September 1 at 12:30 p.m. in the Decatur Library once the author speaks, signs and openly debuts the work in the AJC Decatur Book Festival.


We hear that actress Skylar Nicholson, who memorably portrayed the title character within this summer’s manufacture of “Alice in Wonderland” in the Serenbe Playhouse has traveled with the rabbit hole and magically arrived in La via Peachtree City. All without the assistance of mushrooms. Nicholson can look about this Sunday’s episode of Lifetime’s “Drop Dead Diva” at 9 p.m. The La-set “Freaky Friday”/”Ally McBeal” mash up shoots in Peachtree City. The show’s ridiculously nice star Brooke Elliott posed for any photo op on-set using the gifted youthful actress, too.


Actor/author Vince Vaughn, experiencing the lengthy beans and James River oysters, with an entree of halibut with fries quietly, with several five in the Optimist Monday night. Server Jen Youthful (who got along famously using the comic actor around shooting “The Internship” with Owen Wilson) reports that Vaughn talked about the fries and cleaned his plate accordingly.

J.R. Applies To THE GOLD

We’ve already seen tonight’s season one finale of TNT’s effective “Dallas” reboot and we’re very happy to are convinced that, even at 81, Ray Hagman continues to have the acting chops that when arrived him beside Henry Fonda in director Sidney Lumet‘s 1964 cold war thriller “Fail Safe.” “Dallas” fans new and old won’ doubt relish Hagman’s emotional hospital scene tonight with longtime co-star and pal Patrick Duffy as J.R.’s more youthful brother fights for his existence. Hagman is really good within the scene Duffy admits he used earplugs during Hagman’s monologue so he wouldn’t tear up throughout the shoot (Bobby is comatose, in the end). Just like every classic season ender from the primetime soap, there’s a number of cliffhangers (one good website involving High cliff Barnes, even!) hardwired into tonight’s season one finale. The show airs on TNT at 9 p.m. and it is in competition with the Summer time Games for eyeballs. Don’t worry, TNT has greenlit Hagman and gang for season two set to air next summer time.
