Vanessa Williams, Nick Kroll earn Hudson Valley Tweets of the Week
The Hudson Buzz can't possibly comment on every Twitter post by celebrities with connections to the Hudson Valley, but with the launch of a new feature — Tweets of the Week — we'll pick five of the funniest, boldest and best related tweets for your consideration.
At No. 5, Harriman's own Jermaine Paul tweeted a link to a Facebook photo of his July 29 performance for the Monroe Concert Series.
Paul earns bonus points for incorporating two social-media platforms with one post. Cheers!
Our birthday present to Bedford resident Martha Stewart is the No. 4 spot on this list. (It's a good thing.)
Stewart celebrated her 71st birthday at the Bedford Post Inn, which is co-owned by Pound Ridge resident Richard Gere. It's pretty tough to have a more dense combination of celebrities and local flavor.
At No. 3, Rye Country Day School alumnus Nick Kroll is disappointed in the range of a popular TV twosome.
As noted by a couple of his followers, it's equally frustrating that Franklin & Bash failed to qualify.
Earning this week's silver medal is Suffern native Dave Annable, who's got a similar case of Olympic fever. He also delves into dinner plans, and seems remarkably secure about doing so.
His reponse to Sports Illustrated's Jimmy Traina — who called it the "Saddest tweet I've ever seen!" — might be even better: "Oh, it gets worse... we sat at the bar."
Taking the top spot on this week's countdown is Annable's "666 Park Avenue" co-star, Vanessa Williams, who tweeted a picture from her middle-school days at Robert E. Bell Middle School in Chappaqua.
She says, "Yikes," but how adorable is she? It's the gold for Williams this week.
