We are currently the #1Webshow in the world, with 4.5 million weekly viewers/listeners and the only syndicated show in the world hosted by a GAY married couple.
Lady Luiza: How are people appearing on your show chosen?

Lady Luiza: How did you start your journey with entertainment?
Jimmy: I started as a celebrity clothing designer, dress all of the major horror movie stars, as well as cool celebrities like David Arquette and Elton John. I branched out into radio and then television as more people started to watch the show and we have built a very cool following of loyal friends who support our show.
Lady Luiza: What is your most joyful childhood memory?

Lady Luiza: What is the most important thing you are doing and why?
Jimmy: I started a boutique public relations firm called World Star PR, which works with indie artists, musicians, filmmakers, authors etc… to help them get publicity and exposure for a very inexpensive price in the world of PR. We work on a month to month basis, no contracts, and our fee is only $650 a month, which is a very, very low price, and indie artists get better results with us than if they were working with a normal PR firm that would charge $1500-$5000 a month. Giving back to the community that has supported me for my career.
