NEW HOPE'S Bob Horowitz will be working Memorial Day.
With Chad Ochocinco.
Horowitz, of Juma Entertainment, is the executive producer of "Ochocinco: The Ultimate Catch," which begins shooting Monday in Los Angeles. The VH1 reality series, to premiere in July, features the Bengals wide receiver dating 85 women (his name means eight-five in Spanish) in a quest to find the one.
Horowitz said seeing Ochocinco's dedication on "Dancing with the Stars" makes him confident he will take the production seriously. Horowitz previously worked with Terrell Owens on the "Superstars" show, where T.O's teammate Joanna Krupa found the ex-Eagle insufferable. Horowitz was less willing to talk trash on T.O.
Out and about
* "Hangover" star Zach Galifianakis hung out in the Phillies clubhouse before yesterday's loss to the Red Sox. The comedian spent most of his time there talking with Jayson Werth, Raul Ibanez, Brad Lidge and Greg Dobbs. He was later joined in a third-base-side suite by castmate Bradley Cooper, here through Friday shooting "The Dark Fields," and Cooper's girlfriend, Renée Zellweger. Cooper, a Germantown Academy grad, showed up with his father, Charlie, and spent some time taking batting practice before the game.
* Comedian Bobcat Goldthwait had his first water ice Thursday evening at Rita's (15th & Spruce).
The "Police Academy" actor- turned-director was in town performing over the weekend at Helium (2031 Sansom), where he heard some employees talking about water ice and told them he had never tried it. After his show he strolled over to get a mango water ice with chocolate ice cream and told customers who recognized him that it was his first time trying the Philadelphia delicacy. On Friday, Goldthwait, a vegetarian, had lunch at Tony Luke's (Front & Oregon) and returned to Rita's.
After his Friday show, Goldthwait caught up with 102.9 WMGK DJ John DeBella at Village Whiskey (118 S. 20th). The next night, DeBella and wife Lisa were among the crowd at a party at their friend Dave Magrogan's Harvest Seasonal Grill at Glen Eagle Square in Glen Mills.
* Oscar-winner Mo'Nique worked out Friday afternoon at Love Park with a personal trainer. The actress was in town for a Friday night comedy show at Temple's Liacouras Center.
* Phillies Jamie Moyer and Rauuuuuul Ibanez and their families dined together Thursday in a party of 20 at Saloon (750 S. 7th). Moyer and wife Karen are regulars at the Italian restaurant. The players were gracious to fans and signed autographs.
We goofed on WIP/Fanatic #'s On Thursday, we erroneously reported that 610 WIP's Howard Eskin and Ike Reese had more male listeners between ages 25 and 54 than did 97.5 The Fanatic's Mike Missanelli.
We failed to calculate that Missanelli is also heard on 950 ESPN. With both stations tallied, Missanelli has more listeners in that coveted advertising demographic. We also failed to reflect that while Eskin and Reese are on from 3 to 7 p.m., Missanelli is on from 2 to 6 p.m.
