Star's Mother Has Cancer
I wanted to make a blog post about this because I had family members who have passed away from lung cancer. You guys might remember Renee who was a contestant on The Entertainer's dating show "Frank The Entertainer.. A Basement Affiar. Her mother has been diagnosed with stage four lung cancer and has spread to the brain. She now has Go Fund Me account and looking ways to promote the page which now has over $1,000. The goal is set for 10K.
She also writes the history of her mother's cancer
She also writes the history of her mother's cancer
For years my mother had been silently suffering. She struggled in pain. She had known that something was wrong with her, but couldn't determine what. Doctors didn't properly diagnose her, and we have no idea how long the cancer has existed. Cancer is very evil, as it can mask itself to be several different kinds of problems. Without proper diagnosis, it only gets worse. On a hot summer day in August my mother suffered a seizure, and had a minor stroke.
It was then that my family and I received the worst news of our lives, and we learned that all her pain was in fact caused by cancer. But not just any cancer, Stage 4 Lung Cancer that has spread to the brain. Can you imagine the terror of hearing those words? The news of course had devastated us to say the least, and it completely has changed the course of our lives ever since.

Exclusive Interview: My 'Where Are They Now?' Interview With Kerry Schwartz (Frank The Entertainer... A Basement Affair)
Where Are They Now? With Kerry
Exclusive: It's been over a month since I've done a 'Where Are They Now?" interview. I've got a couple of more on the way. This interview I've done recently ; Kerry Schwartz was best known for being the winner of The Entertainer's VH1 dating show back in 2010. She says being on the show 'quite an experience'. She also reveals that her and Cathy ( who was the runner-up) are not close friends anymore like they once were. Says her and Felicia ( who also on the show) are best friends. After being on the show, she got a job working as a casting producer for the Bull Cunningham Show. Her dream now is too become a celebrity interviewer. She has interviewed countless number of celebrities and reality stars in her own show "Getting Comfy With Kerry."
We all know as the winner of 'Frank The entertainer.. a Basement Affiar." What was your fondest of memory of being on that show? and do you still keep in touch with Frank?
Being the winner on frank the entertainer was quite the experience. I have so many great memories from being on the show! One of my fondest memories was obviously when I won the show. I was so into Frank at the time and I was really overjoyed when he chose me. However, some of the most memorable were with the girls in the house. I got along with everyone, So just hanging out, getting to know the girls, and doing these crazy, fun challenges everyday with them were the most fun. It was kind of like the sorority I never had in college that I always wanted. Frank and I no longer keep in touch. However, I wish him the best and really do hope he is well! Everything happens for a reason. I have actually been in a serious relationship now for about three years. His name is Chris James. He is super supportive in everything I do in my career, has a heart of gold, and happens to be the best thing that ever happened to me. I couldn't be more in Love.
You were on the show with your friend Cathy who was the runner-up. Are you guys still friends?
Unfortunately Cathy and I aren't close friends anymore like we used to. Not for any specific reason, We are both in serious relationships now and I think we kind of grew apart. However, Sometimes I miss her and think about her. She will always have a special place in my heart and wish her nothing but happiness now and in the future.
Do you still keep in contact with any of the other girls from the show?
I kept in touch with most of the girls for a while, But as time when on we don't keep in touch at all. Maybe a facebook message here and there to wish each other a happy birthday. There is one girl I keep in touch with, see every weekend, and has truly become my BEST FRIENDs and a sister to me. Felicia. I am most thankful for meeting her on that show. That was the best thing that came out of it! She has become a huge part of my life and really couldn't picture my life without her.
After being on that show, you've done a lot of other stuff like "The Bill Cunningham Show". How is like working there and what do you do?
Currently, I work as the Audience casting producer at the Bill Cunningham Show on pix11. I absolutely love my job and couldn't ask to work with a more fabulous team and Host! They have become my second family and my home away from home. Be sure to check it out Mon-Fri at 1pm!
You're also a celebrity interviewer now on your own show "Getting Comfy With Kerry" Which celebrities have you interviewed and which celebrities do you want to interview in the future?
Yes, I am currently doing celebrity interviews and trying to get my dream job, as a host! :)
"Getting Comfy with Kerry" is a show that premises a sit down, one on one interview with a celebrity. Kerry Schwartz exclusively chats with each celeb and gets down to the raw and real facts of the gossip circulating each celeb. You may hear their stories and naughty dirty laundry via tabloids and media but getting comfy with Kerry captures the truth from the subjects mouth. Look forward to a segment called "off the cuff" where Kerry asks out of the ordinary questions ( vodka or tequila, do you consider yourself a freak, sleep with clothes or naked, etc) Nothing is off limits! Kerry is very charismatic, outgoing, and has a personality that meches with just about anybody!Be prepared to laugh, relate and tear up at times. The set is always a couch or bed etc. SO the celeb is "Getting comfy" in a "comfy" setting. I've had celebs anywhere from dmx's wife Tshera, ying yang twins, Quinton Aaron (main actor from blindside) to mob wives Carla and Drita!
Is there anything else would like to add?

Here is another 'Where Are They Now?" interview that I did recently. This time it's with Renee who was best known being on Frank The Entertainer... A Basement Affiar. The show was one of VH1's last dating shows to air and it only lasted one season . She was portayed as the emotional wreck on the show and she tells me what is she doing now.
Renee Lee Taylor: I'm good John, thank-you for asking. I hope things are well with you!
John Taylor: You were best known for appearing on "Frank The Entertainer... A Basement Affair." What was your fondest memory being on the show?
Renee Lee taylor: My fondest memory ( while on the show ) was winning the talent date, and then getting the first key from Frank. What a great feeling that was. My fondest memory during that time would have to be realizing that I can do this. Being on tv was something I had dreamed about since I was very young, and doing this without an agent, or prior television experience was amazing to me, especially if you knew where I live ( nothing happens here! ). The people I had met throughout the process was just an overall cool experience.
And for those of you who may be shouting at the screen saying she only wanted to be on tv, I actually was in fact open for love at the time. That part was true.
John Taylor: You were kinda portrayed as the emotional wreck on the show. Now was that how you really are or just a persona created by the producers?
Renee Lee taylor: I admit to being an emotional person, and I do wear my heart on my sleeve. However, the producers portrayed me in a way where it was exaggerated for entertainment purposes. I am NOT a desperate person. I am however a competitive one. A lot of the time I was laughing at myself throughout the process, this is something they didn't show at all.
John Taylor: Was that really is house? because I remember when the show aired people said that wasn't really his house on the show.
Renee Lee Taylor: It was not really the house that they live in. The Maresca's do not live far from it, and there were elements within the house that were their actual items.
John Taylor: On the show, you also kinda had beef with Dana. Why do you think she picked on you?
Renee Lee Taylor: Dana tried to pick on anyone that she could to gain air time. She targeted me because she had known I wasn't a mean person, and she felt I was an easy target. She probably also had a feeling that I was getting a lot of camera time and wanted the same. Dana isn't really emotionally stable, or at least she didn't act that way while I was there. She'll act like your friend one minute, and attack you the next. I have no idea how she is today.
John Taylor: Did anything thing else happened on the show that did not air on TV?
Renee Lee Taylor: There were plenty of things that they did not air. They didn't air that I got along with Jess, Melody, or Mandy. They didn't show how much Frank's parents had liked me from the beginning, which actually contributed to a lot of the girls turning against me at the time. They didn't show a horrible fight I had with Felica on the beach. Where she tried to tear me completely apart, even critiquing my job. They didn't show that because they didn't want to portray her as being a bitch. They didn't show lighter moments such as Christi, Jess, and I making up musicals about the show in the kitchen. That would of been cute.
John Taylor: Do you still keep in touch of Frank and his mom? I know that his father passed away back in 2010. What about the girls?
Renee Lee Taylor: I keep in touch with Frank's brother Sal, and we've had a friendship since meeting on the show. As for the rest of them, I don't talk to anyone else on the phone. I wish Frank and his family the very best! They really are a great group of people! I do keep in touch with a few of the girls on facebook. Cathy and I comment on each other's pages frequently, and once in a great while I hear from Christi, Melody, and Jess. The rest rarely update, or we just don't talk at all. It's nothing personal. I miss a few, and would love to hear from them!
John Taylor: It's been three years since the show aired, have you found love now?
Renee Lee Taylor: Yes, my third engagement finally made it down the isle. haha
John Taylor:Let's about the present, First off I want to send my prayers to the people at Boston because
I know you live there.
Renee Lee Taylor: Thank-you, what happened in Boston is surreal. It's hard for me to believe, and fortunately I didn't know anyone directly affected. However, my heart truly goes out to everyone involved. It's heart breaking. The people of Boston are Strong, and we will recover!
John Taylor: What have you've been doing now since being on VH1?
Renee Lee Taylor: After VH1 I got a few offers to do some gigs but they all fell through. It was disappointing. 51 Minds decided to soon after cancel basically all the love shows, so there was no hope of I love Money, or Charm School. There's not much opportunity where I live, so I decided to do the next best thing, and that is to finish my degree! Right now I am studying theater, writing, and just getting back into the things that I love. It's a great feeling to be back. From there I would like to move somewhere there is more excitement and opportunities for me. If $$ wasn't an issue, I would have already of left! I have no idea what the future holds, however if the right opportunity knocks, I will answer it.
John Taylor: Would you ever consider doing reality TV again?
Renee Lee Taylor: Yes, but I would do it a lot differently. First off, I've grown so much since the experience. I took a lot of things personally and to heart back then, and I would sincerely try not to next time around. The hardest part for me was reading straight up LIES about me over the Internet ( written by people with no job, life, or anything better to do ). That was very hard. But it happens to everyone that's on TV. No matter how nice, good looking, ect, someone will have something negative to say, and one day with the help of some good people in my life, I got the strength to just say f*ck it, and not look at it anymore. What will be will be. When your on tv it brings out the best and worst in people that you know. They either will be very happy for you, or be insanely jealous/negative. Fortunately I also got a lot of positive feed back from wonderful fans of the show. There really are some good people out there, and I am grateful for that! I would have loved to do I love money, or Charm School. But to be honest what I'd love even more would be to be on a scripted sitcom, soap opera, or the movies.
John Taylor: Is there anything else you would like to add?
Renee Lee Taylor: I can't say what the future holds for me for sure, but I do believe you haven't heard the last of me. Please be kind to others, as life is short. Take reality TV as bits and pieces, and with a grain of salt. Don't take it all so seriously.... just enjoy it for what it's worth.

VH1 Stars Share Their Thoughts
Today, we all found out that Casey Anthony was found NOT GUILTY for murdering her child and the majority are not happy, including so VH1 reality stars.
Here is what they have to say:
You're Cut Off
Erica Rose - @TheEricaRose So mad about the #CaseyAnthony verdict. This white trash girl is going to be a celebrity for killing her daughter. #nojustice. So sad :'(
Lauren Grissom- @LaurenGrissom I didn't watch Casey A's verdict b/c I just knew she was guilty. My heart is saddened & my faith in our society is at a low.
Marcy- @themarcyminute how is she not guilty? that stupid bitch killed her daughter. she is evil!!!! wtf! how can our justice system do this?????
Dawn Neufeld- @DawnNeufeld People boasting they knew Casey would get off - she got away with murder dummies, regardless of the evidence. That's #notwinning
Rock Of Love
Jes - @Jesr08 Wow... Take the life of a child and nothing is done? What has this world come to
Brandi C- @HelloBrandi The state somehow couldn't find ample evidence. I do believe not reporting your child missing for 31 days is abuse, or at least neglect.
Farrah- @vh1sFarrah Casey anthony u are a baby killing whore
Ashley- @vh1Abomb As a mother i am sickened that ill have to explain to my son someday that we cant even trust our justice system
Frank The Entertainer... A Basement Affiar
Stephanie- @vh1stephanie I'm late but CASEY ANTHONY found not guilty?? Who paid off the jury and judge... just #ridiculous and #absurd

Ray-J- @RayJ Casey Anthony not guilty?
Heartbreaker- @VH1HEARTBREAKER :'( I'm sooooooo upset!! Fuck YOU Casey Anthony!! Still a murderer in MY eyes!! R.I.P Caylee Anthony </3
Unique- @MsPastorino Shes smiling because she got off but how can u smile when your baby is still dead. woman dont have babies if u cant take care of them, SMDH!
