I received a text message from my husband today….
Rob Van Winkle a.k.a Vanilla Ice was filming at Old Castle Coastal, for his DIYNetwork show The Vanilla Ice Project. When he came in my husband was introduced to him and shook his hand. They then headed out to do some filming at the plant. You may be wondering why are they at my husbands work? Of course that would be because you don’t know exactly what my husband’s place of business does. They manufacture and sell pavers, and supplied some for one of the Vanilla Ice projects.
The Vanilla Ice project is currently filming it’s third season
About This Show
Best known for his ’90s music, pop icon Vanilla Ice also brings more than 15 years of home improvement experience to this 7,000-square-foot Palm Beach mansion. In each episode of DIY Network’s The Vanilla Ice Project, Vanilla Ice (aka Robert Van Winkle) and his crew of contractors get down to business and renovate a different room of the home. He’ll pound nails and call the shots in this room-by-room renovation.
Most of this renovation happens right in my backyard since he is a resident of my local area. He is often on our local radio station Wild 95.5 and participated in at least one Vanilla Ice Block Party. Around these neck of the woods he has a reputation for being a really great guy.
My husband managed a quick picture while Vanilla Ice and Mike Frantantoni were conversing about a little promotional piece. Mike is in the running for president of Belgard Hardscapes and got a video recommendation from Vanilla Ice himself.
Would have loved to had a picture of Vanilla Ice and my husband but who wants to walk up to someone and say “Hey can I take a picture with you?”, well maybe the ladies would. Thought this was just a cool piece to share with you.
