Los Angeles, CA – Just got off the phone with the manager of Nuttin’ But Stringz, who is stranded along with thousands of airline passengers in Europe due to the Iceland Volcano eruption. Not since 9-11 or Mount Saint Helens (May 18, 1980, Washington State) have so many planes been grounded. TMZ got an exclusive interview this week with Tourie and Damien Escobar, brothers who make up the internationally renown Nutt’ But Stringz, who performed live at Dancing with the Stars on ABC. Taking a break from the show TMZ caught the urban rock violinists just outside the DWTS studios.
When asked who they thought was the best dancer? Both replied in harmony, “Kate Gosselin. She’s a good woman, a good Mom and the most sexy,” Tourie and Damien answered.
TMZ’s Harvey Levin (shaking his head), back in the newsroom, was blown away when he heard Tourie Escobar ttell the TMZ news cameraman that He’s
” in love with Kate Gosselin, and would love to date her.”

violinists answer, “A fine wine.”

The American Heart Association’s Power To End Stroke initiative has been forging ahead to empower individuals through education and awareness about their risk for stroke and the choices they have in prevention.
According to the AHA Stroke is the number three killer in America and the leading cause of disability. In fact, nearly 2600 Americans die of cardiovascular disease each day, an average of one death every 33 seconds. Although the numbers are staggering, the power to change these statistics lies within all of us to make simple lifestyle changes that can reverse these numbers.
Funds raised by the Power of Legacy event will directly benefit research, education and outreach in Houston. The 2010 Power of Legacy chair is Merele Yarborough. Honorees for the evening are Aetna, Kirk Franklin and Judy and Wayne McConnell.

The Power To End Stroke campaign is supported nationally by the Bristol-Myers Squibb/Sanofi Pharmaceuticals Partnership.
