"DON'T BE calling my phone, I don't know you like that," was all
said when we reached him on his cell yesterday seeking details on what business brought him and agent
to town last week.
The Cowboys wide receiver and Rosenhaus, now sporting a beard, stayed at the Loews Hotel (12th & Market) Tuesday night and breakfasted at the hotel Wednesday with some business associates. That's when CN8's Greg Coy, who co-hosts "Your Morning," with Connie Colla, which broadcasts from the hotel, noticed Owens and approached him during a commercial break.
Coy asked if the former Iggles star wanted to come on the live show, but Owens declined, between bites of an omelet. When we reached Owens yesterday, he said he had nothing to say about why he was here and asked again that we not call his phone. We asked him for a name of a publicist whom we should be calling, but he hung up on us.
Owens fired publicist Kim Etheredge in January. In September, she famously poo-poohed reports of a reported Owens suicide attempt by saying, "Terrell has 25 million reasons why he should be alive today."
Calls to Rosenhaus and his brother/partner Jason, seeking comment on last week's visit, were not returned last night.
Playboy picks the Phillies
As Phillies fans lose faith in their team, it's good to know that Playboy remains confident in the Phils.
The May issue, featuring Holland, Bucks County's Shannon James, who was Shannon O'Brien at Council Rock South, predicts the Phillies will win the NL East this season.
Birds about town
Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie and wife Christina Weiss Lurie, who produced "Broken English" and "Feel," which played the Philadelphia Film Festival, dined Friday with their children at Susanna Foo Gourmet Kitchen (555 E. Lancaster) in Radnor.
* After QB A.J. Feeley hit the links at Inniscrone Golf Club in Avondale for an early round Friday, he and his playing partners lunched at Lucky's, the club's new bar and grill, which proved it's not superstitious by having its grand opening on Friday the 13th.
A few nights back Feeley and pals hit Denim (1712 Walnut).
* Eagles receiver Hank Baskett and a ladyfriend enjoyed cheesesteak spring rolls and surf and turf at Davio's (111 S. 17th) the other night. They sipped pinot grigio, Baskett left a generous tip.
Everybody loves Judy
Phil Rosenthal, the creator and executive producer of "Everybody Loves Raymond," stopped by Helium (2031 Sansom) Thursday night to check out comedian Andy Kindler's set. Kindler had a recurring role in "Everybody Loves Raymond," a series that somehow lasted nine seasons. Kindler is also featured in "Judy Toll: The Funniest Woman You Never Heard Of," about the late Haverford High grad Judy Toll, which played the Philadelphia Film Festival.
Rosenthal and wife, Darby native actress Monica Horan, who also appeared on "Raymond," are also in the film and were in town for the world premiere of the Toll documentary Friday at International House.
