Gal Pals, Sisters and Girlfriends

The Golddiggers of Rat Pack fame celebrate life and strike a pose! From left to right: Susan Buckner, Deborah Pratt, Maria Lauren (Alberici Sisters), Linda Eichberg (Alberici Sisters), Marie Peck, Patti Gribow, Peggy Gohl and Darlene Cianci (Alberici Sisters).

When girlfriends celebrate together, it is pure joy! My girlfriends are a colorful bunch of personalities as we tap into our inner diva which touches on the divine!

We have a history together, starting as singers and dancers on the Dean Martin Show. We were just babes!

  • Sneak a peek at our book on Amazon! Beyond Our Wildest Dreams tells of our escapades during the golden age of show business when the Rat Pack and Elvis ruled the Las Vegas strip!

Through the years, we worked and played together and in between, we lived life, broke-up with boyfriends, got married, got divorced, had babies, watched them grow, applauded their achievements and watched them get married. Such was this occasion. My sister’s daughter, Lindsay was getting married! It was a grand affair partying with my dear friends and family too!

It’s so important to have people in your life that have witnessed your ups and downs and are there for you as you turn the page of another chapter.  I found you just can’t beat sharing your life story with sisters, girlfriends and gal pals! For that, I’m truly grateful.

Start today and call a girlfriend or sister to pal around, with, have lunch, go shopping, go to the movies, go dancing, drink wine, exercise together or just talk. Texting doesn’t count! 😉

Have a blessed life and share it with a friend,
