Talk of The Town was hosted by Toni Holt Kramer and Ruta Lee, and was one of the first shows of it’s kind throughout the 1990’s to attend fabulously glamorous shows and big events, not only in Hollywood, but around the world. Toni and Ruta attended all of these events not knowing who was going to be there, whether it be movie stars, television stars, sports figures or politicians. They interviewed each and everyone at every event and Talk of the Town became the most exciting and popular show of its time. Most interviewers were kept behind ropes and all you would see of them was their hand holding a microphone, not the interviewer. Toni and Ruta were to the contrary and could be seen from head to toe wearing the most fabulous gowns complimenting their exciting personalities. In fact, they became as sought after as the stars themselves.
Toni and Ruta’s production company “Blondes Have More Fun” was headed by their fabulous producer Gloria Gebbia and were in demand everywhere, in fact many celebrities would only want to be interviewed by them. They did over 500 individual shows and over a period of years interviewed literally thousands of VIP’s from Governors Arnold Schwarzenegger to Pete Wilson, to John Travolta, Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman, and to TV stars like Jay Leno, Merv Griffin and so many. many more.
Talk of the Town could be described today as pure gold meaning that stars like Bob Hope, the Gabbors, Robert Mitchum, Debbie Reynolds, and on and on are no longer with us. But we have them in intimate one on one interviews answering unrehearsed, unscripted questions.
Talk of the Town is still Talk of the Town!
