Introducing… Rich


In honour of Rich’s 30th Birthday Party this weekend, he will be the next Homorazzi cast member we’re going to feature. Most of us met Rich while he was still living on the island- no not Manhattan island, THE Vancouver Island! He would often come up every other week and party with the boys from Vancouver, Seattle, Toronto, PV… You name it: Rich did it (try switching “it” for “him” there and the joke still makes sense… kidding Rich!) When we all first heard he was moving to Vancouver, we got worried that we’d go through Rich Overload. Luckily for us- and for him- we did not. Rich brings to the panel his expertise in Politics, Top Model and all things He-Man and Shera- along with his infamous Wonder Woman twirl. Hope you enjoyed the mini-roast. Happy Birthday Rich!

  • No lie! There is even a photo of my brothers with their skateboards and little Richie with the cabbage patch doll. Even better… he was dressed in a what was probably suppoesed to be a football uniform, but it just screamed male cheerleader.
