  1. Many years ago I was invited to Don and Barbara Rickles home for Rosh Hashanah! It was a massive event and full of A-list Hollywood celebrities. As soon as I walked in the door Don made an announcement that I was Italian and introduced me to every Italian. He was able to be cruel and make you laugh at the same time.
