... and Billy Leroy let us know that his reality series "Baggage Battles" premiered last night in France on Discovery Fr. (In the U.S., the show got picked up for a third season...)

And Billy is particular proud of this... "I was born in France. My Father is French. I have a French Passport," he said. "So it was a big deal for me."

I hope the dog walker in the Bowery Boogie story is identified and fired. You should never hit an animal. This is not the job for you.

Yeah, does anyone recognize this person? Or any of the dogs so we can track the dog walker down that way? This person needs to be out of the business of dealing with animals.

I hadn't heard about Chumley's reopening. If it survived prohibition and a partial building collapse, I think it deserves to return. Good news.
