The Whole “Toof!”

March 23rd, 2015

People tell me I’ve got a million dollar smile and they are pretty darn close! Another day, another 5 Grand..that I DON’T have! With one daughter going on her sleep away class trip and the other to Israel and all I want to do is get back to Jersey for a hot minute! Today was a real Sunda day! First I take my daughter to the eye doctor and then he says he has an opening if I want to take the next spot. GREAT idea! Unless you are going to have a tooth extracted. My pupils were so dilated and everything was fuzzy and I had to sign paperwork and I just want the tooth DONE! BTW excellent Oral Surgeon here in LA..Dr. Kupterman. I think my days of running back to NY to see my dentist are over now that I have a new team. I see Dr. Avi Donitza and he gets the job done, right! I’m not dissing my NYC dentist but how the heck he missed a cavity in my mouth with all the x-rays I’ve paid for is beyond me. My esophagus glows in the dark! I’m strange: I have a tooth fetish. I think people’s teeth say a lot about them. I met a young lady preparing for her Bat Mitzvah and I complimented her on her smile and SHE said “And I NEVER floss!” I got some bad news for her when 13 turns 23 she will freak out when she finds she has gum disease! I should have been a dentist. I’m always doing something to my friends teeth. I was taught by the best: Eva Leak indeed was the best hygienist by FAR. She taught me so much and I remember studying with her at Fairleigh Dickinson University and being proud to know the answers ..that’s strange. I also spent a LOT of time with my Uncle Earl and was always in his operatory experimenting, looking, learning …all I know is that most comedians get calls for gigs…I get calls when someone has a kid with a popcorn kernel stuck in his gum I have to manipulate it and get it OUT..usually that’s what you’ll hear is me saying OOOUUUTTTTT because THEY ALWAYS BITE! My comedy partner had a toothache and so I said..”Let me see that!” I propped him in a chair, got out my supplies (now you know I’m bonafied crazy) and it was just food debris that got caught and had to be removed by a professional….comedian! So much has happened that I will have to fill in the blank years..so get ready for “The Sunda” hopefully performing in a comedy club near you!

Trying to keep it up!

Kosher Soul

February 21st, 2015

I am bringing my “Kosher Soul” to the Laugh Factory tonight at 8PM.   Just to let you all know I broke my toe on my kids dollhouse that was intentionally left in the middle of the floor to maim me so I can’t hide the remote control. Now I realize with this foot injury,  I will need a “toe truck”.   I know I haven’t been blogging but I am back! Good news for everyone who has been waiting:  my book “Kosher Soul” will be released March 20th. Remember, be nice to all valets, doormen and stylists; next year they could turn up in your life as an executive at a  studio or the star of a reality show based on your life!
LA …you gotta love it!   BTW  check out the other side of Sunda when I perform at the Comedy Store on March 3rd at 10:00 PM with Bob Sumners “Laff Mobb”.

 

Another day…another day.

November 20th, 2014

I’m trying to catch up and now I’m moonwalking!  Planning another Bat Mitzvah, graduation and high school applications!  When my fans write to tell me that I haven’t updated my blog they are SOOOOO right! But..kids come first and so it goes.  Let’s see what tomorrow brings..Will see you all at The Laugh Factory and hope to hit this blog before Thanksgiving if not Happy Thanksgiving and be grateful…you are having a great day if you’re in good health and that’s all I pray for when it comes to friends and family!  Now…back to the Party Planner…ME! Stay tuned for more Sunda…Live!

The Day After

October 20th, 2014

I worked so hard Saturday nightt at The Laugh Factory! How hard did I work?  So hard my hooves were threatening to run away from my body which is appropriate for this Halloween “season.”  I say season because I’ve never seen SO many costume stores literally POPPING UP!  Talking heads, walking hands, walking HEADS and my least favorite:  SCARECROWS!  These things creep me out and I wonder about the “Halloweenies”   The people who start decorating for Halloween immediately after Labor Day.  Shrunken heads and snaggled toothed pumpkins decorate their lawns and windows. You got to be in it to win it so…I’m not winning any costume party.  I’m going as MOM!  Mom is no fun, she wakes you up for school, complains about your room and then when it’s clean it’s never enough!  Okay..so I’m a MOM this Halloween and I want to see if I’m wearing the right costume.  I am in Beverly Hills by the way which means most Beverly Hills moms are in costume!  I’m in my NJ mom outfit:  Tee shirt, jeans and loafers!  To think I thought I was “with it!” WRONG!  My kids will tell me more than once:  “You don’t dress up like the other moms!” They’re not wrong but let’s see how THEY dress for Halloween..we still have some time left before the goblins come out but I can start early…It’s middle school meetings today..I think I’ll beat my face like I’m going onstage and see if they recognize me with makeup!  Just trying to be a little Halloweenie! LOL!  See you guys, soon!

 

Sunda is BACK in ACTION!

October 18th, 2014

Vidal Sassoon…Gone Too Soon!

May 10th, 2012

VIDAL SASSOON
GONE TOO SOON

GROWING UP YOU ALWAYS WANTED TO LOOK LIKE A VIDAL SASSOON MODEL OR AT LEAST HAVE THE HAIR! VIDAL SASSOON REVOLUTIONIZED THE WAY WOMEN WORE THEIR HAIR! OF COURSE, I DIDNT HAVE THE HAIR FOR THE STYLES BUT THEN HE CHANGED THE GAME AND MADE THE PRODUCTS THAT COULD FLIP YOU, CRIMP YOU, CURL YOU AND FOR ME THE MOST IMPORTANT: STRAIGHTEN YOU! HIS FAMOUS TAG LINE: IF YOU DONT LOOK GOOD, WE DONT LOOK GOOD! JUST ADDED TO HIS AURA OF AUTHENTICITY.

WE WILL NEVER HAVE ANOTHER VIDAL SASSOON. HE MADE HAIR CUTTING INTO ARCHITECTUREA WORK OF ART.

I HAD THE PLEASURE OF INTERVIEWING MR. SASSOON ON JAMES AND SUNDA ON JLTV AND HAVE TO TELL YOU THAT WHEN HE RAN HIS HANDS THROUGH MY HAIRMY HAIR LOOKED GREAT! THE MAN HAD MAGIC HANDS! HE SHARED HIS INTERESTING STORIES OF HIS VISITS TO HARLEM, NEW YORK AND HOW MUCH HE EMBRACED JAZZ AND LOVED THAT THEY CALLED HIM WHITEY. HE TALKED ABOUT HOW DIFFICULT BLACK HAIR WAS BACK THEN COMPARING IT TO TODAY AS HE SAID ITS NOW EASY WITH ALL THE PRODUCTS WE HAVE AVAILABLE TO US.

I HAVE TO TELL YOU: IT STILL ISNT EASY BUT THATS NOT THE POINT. THE POINT IS THAT THIS MAN HAS BEEN THROUGH ALL TYPES OF HAIR!

HIS GLASSES BELONGED TO CARY GRANT, HE WAS RAISED IN AN ORPHANAGE WHEN HIS DAD DIED AND HIS MOM COULDNT AFFORD TO RAISE HIM. VIDAL SASSOON KNEW DRAMA. HE WAS BORN INTO IT! IT NEVER STOPPED HIM AND HE WAS THE SUPER STAR OF HAIRSTYLISTS TO THE SUPER STARS! FROM WHAT I UNDERSTAND, HE WAS AN IRAQI JEW AND TO HEAR HIM SPEAK WAS AN EXPERIENCE. HE KNEW HOW TO MAKE YOU HANG ON TO EVERY WORD WITH HIS CRISP BRITISH ACCENT.

VIDAL SASSOON YOU ARE SADLY GONE TOO SOON AND YOU KNOW HOW I AM ABOUT HAIR SO LETS ALL REMEMBER THE MAN WHO STARTED IT ALL. IN DEATH HE WILL BE CELEBRATED. IN MY BATHROOM HE WILL ALWAYS BE REMEMBERED. I AM EMBARRASSED TO ADMIT THAT I STILL HAVE THE FIRST STRAIGHTENING/CURLING IRON EVER MADE BY VIDAL SASSOON THAT SADLY IS NO LONGER IN STOCK BUT IF YOU EVER WANT TO BORROW IT YOU HAVE TO KEEP READING VIRTUAL JERUSALEMS HOODZPAH! COLUMN AS I ALWAYS LIKE TO SHARE MY LIFE STORIES WITH YOU BUT TODAY I WANTED TO SHARE THE LIFE OF MY HAIR ICON.

VIDAL SASSOON, MAKE HEAVEN BEAUTIFUL AND G-D BLESS YOU AS YOU REST IN PIECE.

I’ve got to do better!

April 17th, 2012

I write for a weekly column in Virtual Jerusalem and usually cut and paste my blog into my personal blog but I can’t even cut a coupon these days! Everything is a blur and I can’t believe that summer is quickly approaching and I have nothing ready! I’m happy about “James and Sunda” being on JLTV for a 3rd Season and hopefully we’ll be up for a 4th if I can get one good nights rest! I’m just coming down from a Disney 4 day whirlwind so forgive me for not being “updated” as I can barely walk! My kids still love Disneyland and for that reason…my hooves still hate it but I do love going and watching their faces light up. My face goes slightly green after a couple of rides but who can tell? My mascara is smearing down my face and nobody recognizes me and when they do…I deny who I am! You gotta be that way sometimes! I’ll keep you guys posted and remember that I’ll be honored in the lovely City of Paterson on June 21st and very excited about that. Yes, I’m still a Paterson Girl at heart…you can take her out but you better let her go visit! We’ll be filming some shots for the TV show so this will be exciting! I hope I haven’t bored you to tears…I try to keep life interesting but the daily grind keeps coming at me! (Thank G-d!) Call for tickets at Montclair State College for the NJ Autism event on June 25th where I’ll be performing and looking forward to seeing all of you! Much love! Until next time…and I’ll make that sooner than later…keep laughing!

“WHERE OH WHERE HAS SUNDA BEEN?”

January 16th, 2012

MY NEW YEAR STARTED OFF WITH A BANG. LITERALLY!

I HAD AN ALLERGIC REACTION TO A NUMBING MEDICATION IN MY MOUTH AFTER A DENTAL APPPOINTMENT. I LOOKED LIKE I HAD BEEN IN A FIGHT WITH MIKE TYSON! IVE NEVER BEEN SO SCARED IN MY LIFE TO LOOK AT MYSELF! A C-SECTION WAS EASIER. I WORE A MASK WALKING THROUGH NYC BECAUSE MY LIPS WERE SO SWOLLEN. OF COURSE, WHEN I GOT TO LA MY FRIENDS THOUGHT I HAD THEM DONE! AFTER A COURSE OF PREDNISONE, THE SWELLING IS GOING DOWN AND IM READY FOR SEASON 3 OF JAMES AND SUNDA ON JEWISH LIFE TELEVISION AND WE HAD TO PUT OFF PRODUCTION AS I LOOKED MORE LIKE ONE OF THE HOUSEWIVES OF BEVERLY HILLS! TRUST ME…I NEED NO MORE FULLNESS IN MY LIPS, NOR DO I NEED IT IN MY HIPS BUT THATS ANOTHER STORY.

MY TRIP HOME WAS NOT UNEVENTFUL. I HAD TO FLY WITH A SERVICE DOG. THAT DIDNT BOTHER ME AS MUCH AS THE FACT THAT THE DOG WAS BLIND! I UNDERSTAND THAT THE WOMAN NEEDED THE DOG BUT THE DOG NEEDED A CANE. A NICE ASIAN COUPLE WAS SITTING WITH ME AND WAS SO POLITE; THE MAN DIDNT WANT TO DISTURB ME SO HE COULD USE THE LAVATORY. BEING A MOTHER I SENSED HE WAS UNCOMFORTABLE AND I ASKED HIM IF HED LIKE TO USE THE LAVATORY AND HE REPLIED: VERY BADLY! WHY DIDNT HE JUST ASK? WHY COULDNT THIS NICE COUPLE LIVE UPSTAIRS OVER ME INSTEAD OF MY NOISY NEIGHBOR WHO HAS HEIGHTENED HER ANTICS TO A NEW LEVEL!

YESTERDAY SHE HIT A HOME RUN. I HEAR ALL THIS DRILLING AND I SMELL FIRE SO IM CONFUSED. SMOKE IS IN THE HALLWAY UPSTAIRS AND I RUN TO THE CONCIERGE OUT OF CONCERN. THIS NEW DESK GUY IS A MANNEQUIN. HE TELLS ME: WE HAVE THE FIRE UNDER CONTROL AND WEVE GOTTEN INTO THE APARTMENT. FIRE! AGAIN????? HE EXPLAINS: ITS NOT A BIG DEAL. SHE WAS COOKING AND LEFT THE APARTMENT AND LOCKED HERSELF OUT THATS WHY THEY HAD TO DRILL THE LOCK TO GET BACK IN. NOW PEOPLE CAN SAY IM PICKING ON HER BUT NOW IM AFRAID FOR MY LIFE. WHO IN THEIR RIGHT MIND LEAVES FOOD ON THE STOVE AND LEAVES THE HOUSE WITH NO ONE IN IT?

NEEDLESS TO SAY, I HAD A MEETING HERE WITH ONE OF THE CAMERAMEN FROM THE SHOW. HE ASKS ME WHO PLAYS THE TUBA UPSTAIRS. I CALMLY EXPLAIN THAT THE SOUND HE HEARS IS FURNITURE BEING DRAGGED ACROSS THE MARBLE FLOOR. HE THOUGHT ALL THIS TIME THAT NOISY NEIGHBOR WAS JUST PART OF MY ACT! OF COURSE, SUNDALIVE READERS KNOW THE REAL DEAL AND I PROMISE TO KEEP YOU ALL TUNED IN IF YOU STAY TUNED IN! ! HAPPY NEW YEAR… A LITTLE LATE BUT I KNOW YOULL FORGIVE ME…JUST DONT ASK FOR A KISS!
