A Real Dream
Home: Middle Village
Roseanne got into the business when she appeared in one of Donald Trump’s beauty pageants. She received the People’s Choice Award, which she said opened up a lot of doors. Her new contacts led to an upswing in offers.
When not modeling, she follows another lifelong interest, majoring in illustration at the School of Visual Arts. Roseanne’s college studies fit nicely with her high school achievements. She won the Art Award at Christ the King High School.
When she’s not studying or modeling, Roseanne loves to read, garden and cook. She also spends her time at Queens Center Mall for shopping and Atlas Park. She goes to Queens Center for the movies.
“Queens has everything, really. It has great stores, great entertainment,” she said. “There’s always interesting people to meet. I’ve always lived in Queens and I always will”.
Although she has lots of interests, her top passion is modeling. Roseanne will be featured in a two-page spread called Fall Discovery next month in “Style” magazine. She hopes it will be the gig that gets her noticed by the big modeling companies.
“I’m really hoping to be discovered by one of the top agencies,” she said. “That’s my real dream.”
In Elmhurst Park, you can go in style . . .in the new bathrooms pictured.
While local park-goers are appreciative to have access to toilets, civic leaders are saying that the renovations are too pricy. Their chief complaints are that the changes have created an overbuilt and oversized eyesore.

Queens raised Nicki Minaj.
Even though the title indicates it is the fourth game in the series, “Just Dance 4” is actually the sixth main entry of the franchise. Coming out on Oct. 9, the game was developed by Ubisoft and features 48 music tracks for people to shimmy along too. Included in the song list is Queens-born artist Nicki Minaj, with her smash single “Super Bass”. Other hit songs listed are “Umbrella” by Rihanna, “Oops, I Did It Again” by Britney Spears, “Rock Lobster” by the B-52s and “Jailhouse Rock” by Elvis Presley.
Among the game’s new features is a dance battle mode, where you can face off against your friends and see who the better dancer is. If you’d rather work together, a bunch of songs will allow either duet or group performances.
“Just Dance 4” will be available for the Xbox 360, the Playstation 3 and the Nintendo Wii. It will be one of the release titles for the Wii U when it hits stores on Nov. 18.
On Wed., Sept. 26, Field Station: Dinosaurs’ 15-Foot T-Rex and Met’s mascot, Mr. Met had some fun with fans at Citi Field.
Field Station: Dinosaurs is a 20-acre Jurassic outdoor exploration with 30 life-sized animatronic dinosaurs, including three T-Rex’s and a 90-foot Argentinosaurs that can be seen from the Empire State Building, MetLife Stadium, traffic helicopters and some flights in and out of Newark Liberty Airport.
Back on Sept. 20, the New York Mets were put out of their misery in style. The Malaisin’ Mets fell to Phillies 16-1, mathematically disqualifying them from the playoffs. Starter Jeremy Hefner, no relation to Hugh, faced seven batters without recording an out. The Phillies scored eight runs in the first inning. Whitestone native Mike Baxter did homer, though.
Beat the Mets, beat the Mets, step right up and beat the Mets…
The Mets just can’t catch a break, even from New York City’s mayor.
During a radio segment on Sept. 21, Mayor Michael Bloomberg talked at length about the arrival of the Brooklyn Nets, the borough’s first professional team since the Dodgers left in 1957. While he welcomed the team to their new home at the Barclays Center and talked about his excitement of a basketball Subway Series, he wasn’t as kind to the struggling Mets.
“You want both teams to be good. It’s sad that the Mets have sort of fallen apart here,” he said.
It certainly didn’t help lighten the Mets fans’ spirits after a devastating 16-1 loss against the Phillies. To add insult to injury, Bloomberg praised Yankees manager Joe Girardi.
“I met him a few times, we got together when he first came here,” he said. “I congratulated him, he’s a great manager.”
