NBC10's Glenn "Hurricane" Schwartz apologized Friday night to a newsroom full of people for an Election Night tantrum he threw last week when his forecast was cut.

Sources tell us management told the meteorologist that his apology should be public, just as his outburst was.

NBC10 management declined to comment, saying the station doesn't talk about matters of personnel. Schwartz did not return our phone call.

Michelle Bombshell baring all

You can see everything that came between Sandra Bullock and Jesse James when James' tattooed trollop Michelle "Bombshell" McGee dances nude at Al's Diamond Cabaret (1810 N. 5th) in Reading June 11 and 12.

She'll perform two sets a night with a $20 cover and will pose for pictures and sign autographs after baring all both nights.

Out and about

* Guitar legend Slash hung out with his

friend Samantha Ronson at the Borgata's mur.mur nightclub Saturday night after the Guns N' Roses/Velvet Revolver axman performed a sold-out show at the hotel's Music Box theater.

Ronson spun a few tracks from Slash's self-titled debut solo album, and the rocker wore a T-shirt from the hotel's Gypsy Bar bearing the bar's mantra, "Lick It. Suck It. Bite It . . . Gypsy Bar," which he wore at the 2007 93.3 WMMR-BQ.

* Chester County "Jackass" Bam Margera

and a pal sat outside the Bishop's Collar (2349 Fairmount) yesterday afternoon sipping spiked Arnold Palmers, half-lemonade/half Sweet Tea vodka.

Margera was very friendly, signing many autographs - more after a crossing guard yelled out, "Hey, that's Bam from 'Jackass,' " and a crowd of kids ran across the street to ask Margera to pose for pictures with them. He obliged.

* Actor Gilles Marini, aka the naked guy

from the shower in "Sex and the City," sipped Dom Perignon and danced with fans Saturday night at Dusk inside Caesars Atlantic City, where he hosted the party. Marini, also known from "Dancing with the Stars," graciously posed for pictures and named a winner to attend last night's "Sex and the City 2" premiere in New York. The film opens locally Thursday.

* "Days of our Lives" actress Gloria Loring

sang for a crowd of about 600 at Saturday's Promise Ball at the Loews Hotel.

The event raised more than $1.3 million for the Eastern Pennsylvania chapter of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

The 2010 Promise Ball honored JDRF founder Lee Ducat and corporate honoree Good Neighbor Pharmacy, and celebrated JDRF's 40th anniversary.
