Maybe you've read Cold Mountain by Charles Frazier. Perhaps you've seen the movie. But seeing this tale of life and love during the Civil War put to music composed by Jennifer Higdon and libretto by Gene Scheer, puts it in a whole new perspective! Especially when you have the privilege of seeing it performed by Opera Philadelphia at the Academy of Music, a theatre that was fully operational years before the Civil War even started!
With summer here, a new season of The Real Housewives of Orange County is in full swing. Cookie was lucky enough to sit down with the actual "first" Housewife, Vicki Gunvalson along with her business partner in Wines By Wives, Chris Gravagna. Gunvalson talked about her Wines By Wives celebrity wine club, why the gay boys love the Housewives so much and what's next for her in Orange County.
