“BACK WITH A BANG”! Not only was that the headline when a hit on a rival mobster, one who threatened to kill me if I did not go over to the “other side”, the Orena Faction. The whole story, in all its gory detail is spelled out in my book, “The Life”. It is also the opening chapter, prologue, which is offered for no charge on Amazon Kindle.
I am back, after an incredibly eventful few weeks. First and foremost, my beautiful wife, Kelly, was selected as Mrs. Cocoa Beach! In a couple of months, she will be on stage at the Pageant in Orlando to see who will be crowned Mrs. Florida, and with that, move on to the Mrs. America Competition. Regardless of where it goes, I’m blessed and incredibly proud of her already!
I was invited to NY to meet with a ” heavyweight” actor and producer. I have a non-disclosure, so at this point I am not at liberty to mention his name. As many of you know, Armand Assante is one of my biggest supporters and advisors. More importantly he is a friend, and has advised me to not let an opportunity slip by.
I am going to consult on a project that is underway, but left my book, and was assured that I’d be invited back. I will keep you all posted.
I also did an interview that will air in a few months. Once again, I am under a non-disclosure, whereas, I cannot mention content, until all the participants have been interviewed. What I can say, is it has opened another door for me with a major production company. One that I have worked with in the past, and one that has consistently said, “it’s the best story out there”! Again, I will keep you all posted. I will be going back for additional footage soon.
While I was waiting for Mrs. Cocoa Beach, to get ready, and sipping a coffee with my friend and partner, Jimmy Del, I noticed a bunch of cameramen at the door. Jimmy immediately starts with the obnoxious shaking of the head, thinking I have something to do with it ….yet AGAIN… I assure him that I do not, and need to satisfy my curiosity. Reluctantly, he follows me to the door. There I see a stunning young lady, maybe in her early twenty’s, she can’t help but to check me out, NAHHHHH!!!, just kidding. I ask the doorman who she is, and he says “some big model” her name is Cara Delevingne.
I see that she is a bit nervous about walking out to her limo, so, being the gentleman that I am, I asked her if she would like me and my friend to escort her out? She replied, “yes, I mean, if you wouldn’t mind”…You can checkout the pictures on Facebook, as well as Vogue and TMZ. And that was the birth of J&L Security. We have since gotten calls for children’s parties, pet sitting, and a few inquiries as to if we would still be interested in doing a piece of work! No models yet…
The bad news is I came back with some effing flu bug. I wanted to jump off a bridge. I’ve been told I’m a miserable@#$$#@ when I’m sick, so I apologize to those who felt the brunt of that. I want to thank all my friends for the warm thoughts. I’m sure there are some out there that were not hoping for my speedy recovery, hoping it was the big one. To them, BOOM! It’s not!
While I was sitting with the heavyweight’s security team, we inevitably turn towards my life, the war, and my boss. Well, one of them said, as I have heard many others say several times, that Greg was more like a serial killer. I never really looked at it that way, but my response was, “Wow, imagine the government making Ted Bundy or Charles Manson a top echelon informer”. I asked them,” What if they left Jeffrey Dahmer on the street to gain information about other serial killing cannibals”? After blank looks for a few seconds, they switched gears and asked me how it is in my new life? That conversation was very pleasant. They were happy to hear I was doing well!
Now the most important point of the week. There is another war brewing. It is reaching a point where I am going to have to make a move. That is why Jimmy came to see me. I hear “Bad” Brad has stolen my #1 entertainer from me. He convinced an underling of mine to release Carlos Carr from my management company! I will take his vocal chords out with a butter knife before I let him go! (“Bad” Brad responded with “If that Goomba Mazza tries any rough stuff, you tell him I aint no band leader. Yeah, I heard that story”!
