From time to time we feature people, places and things we love. This week we're showcasing two amazing women, Lori Barghini and Julia Cobbs of 'Lori & Julia Show' fame.
The Minnesota radio divas promise "a little gossip, a lot of laughs," from 3-6 p.m. daily on myTalk 107.1 FM, broadcast throughout the Minneapolis-St Paul region and operated by Hubbard Broadcasting.
It has been my pleasure to visit their studio to chat about Hollywood happenings. Their other guest on that particular morning was the decidedly dreamy Andrew Shue from 'Melrose Place.' It was all good...
What separates these ladies from the rest of the pack is the fact that they are genuinely funny and easy to relate too, as evidenced by their popularity in the Twin Cities market. Whether they're telling a Pope story or dissecting the recent antics of Alec Baldwin, they do it with good humor and seemingly perfect comedic timing.
Lori & Julia aren't tied to the studio and often attend red carpet events and get their share of hot scoops while interviewing big name celebrities.
A recent stint at the SAG Awards at the Shrine Auditorium in Hollywood gave them full access to the celebs as they made their way into the red carpet event. We'll name drop and mention here that they've scored face time with the likes of George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp and Josh Duhamel.
Their technique for luring celebs in for a chat is interesting. They recent told Amy Carlson Gustafson from TwinCities.com, "It's like a carnival. The stars are the animals in the zoo, and we're the people trying to get them over to us. Our strategy is to tell them they're beautiful and handsome. That we're from Minnesota and please come say 'Hi' to us. We don't even want to ask you a question." Whatever works ladies.
They totally rocked their Monique Lhuiller gowns for the SAG Awards, courtesy of the the designer's Edina boutique.
Follow Lori & Julia on Twitter and Facebook. We think you'll find their social media to be very engaging. We would be remiss if we failed to mention the producer of the show, Donny Love, who can be heard on the show daily - follow him on Twitter too.
