Egusquiza is the veteran gossip hound famed for being the first one to break the story/scandal of political figure John Edwards’ extramarital affair – ten months before mainstream media jumped on the bandwagon.
A bartender turned Hollywood reporter/gossip guru, Rick joined the National Enquirer back in early 2000 by pure serendipity – being at the right place at the right time – but also for the mere fact that the very West Coast hipster-looking thespian has a unique certain je ne sais quoi that somehow makes him a people magnet – he’s everybody’s confidant.
Egusquiza is a walking encyclopedia of all things entertainment celebrity related. Like a sponge, he absorbs information at the speed of light, retains names and faces in a heartbeat, always got the perfect punch and/or comeback line, and of course is always in the know and in the now!
It’s nearly impossible to resist the captivatingly entertaining spell of this corky, bubbly, at times goofy, unique character who luckily for us is blessed with an infectiously great sense of humor, a contagiously energetic and hysterically comical personality. Needless to say, the camera loves him! The fit 45-year-old Cuban-American/New Jersey native has a very unique fashion style sporting his trademark signature attire- flip-flops and black-rimmed glasses – and an indelible “Joie de vivre” grin on his face. He’s appeared on numerous TV shows including Inside Edition, Geraldo at Large on Fox News and CNN to name a few.
There’s definitely something reassuring and contagiously appealing about Rick’s uber cool personality that impulsively draws you to him. Charming and charismatic in a non-threatening way, his ever-so approachable demeanor naturally makes him the perfect candidate to be the ideal “best friend” – and indeed, that’s just it…everybody loves Rick.

With her sharp wit and hilarious songs, Lahna holds nothing back as she shares insights and observations from her life as a wife, mother, and the uncensored inner voice of millions of women. In August, she will release her first one-hour special, filmed live in Las Vegas, titled “So… I Wrote A Song About It”.

She is then able to take her life experiences and her comedic wit, and relate to people about the things we all go through on a daily basis.
Lahna has appeared on NBC, Comedy Central, Animal Planet and VH1. She has also been featured as a commentator on CMT Insider and most recently on TruTV’s “How to be a Grownup”. She regularly plays the top comedy clubs and theaters around the country and has also done several tours for the USO. This year, she made her big screen debut in the award-winning indie film “Teacher of The Year”.

When she’s not on the road, Lahna divides her time between Nashville and Los Angeles with her husband, comedian Ralphie May, their two wonderful children, April June May and August James May, and their dog Hoochie Mama.
