AFTER SHOOTING off his mouth and antagonizing everyone from patriotic mayors to the bereaved families of soldiers who died in battle, Jacko Eisenberg, the most recent winner of Kochav Nolad (A Star is Born), may spend the rest of his career apologizing for boasting about dodging the draft, not voting in national elections earlier this year and making disparaging comments about the country. After apologizing in a Channel Two interview soon after making the remarks, Eisenberg announced last week that he had cancelled his concert schedule so that he could some take time out to think. (He didn't mention, of course, the mayors who had threatened to do what they could to prevent him from performing in their towns.)
In his apologies, the 25-year-old Eisenberg has repeatedly broken down - in a manner, some skeptics have suggested, that looks like a well-rehearsed ploy to re-gain public sympathy.
THEY'RE EACH in a different place professionally, but pop star Rita, comedian Adi Ashkenazi and singer Harel Skaat all had reason to celebrate last week. Each won an entertainment prize at the People of the Year Awards, with Rita honored for her month-long series of summer performances in Tel Aviv, Ashkenazi earning recognition for her one-woman TV show and Skaat continuing to reap praise for his impressive debut album.
NIGHT OWLS who've made a habit of listening to Gideon Reicher's Army Radio program will have to find another way to occupy their late-night hours. After 18 years at the mic on his Night Owl talk show, the down-to-earth Reicher has called it quits, and last week hosted his final Night Owl broadcast.
Not that he's leaving the broadcast industry. It's just that after all these years he's grown a little tired of the same old routine, and decided to look for a new format, this time in television. Media watchers are confident he'll make the transition just fine - Reicher's continued success is simply a matter of finding the right formula.
Actress and model Miri Bohadana is again starring in a new campaign for Golbary, with photographs in this season's catalogue emphasizing the Sderot native as much as the fashions. After returning briefly to her dark roots, Bohadana is blonde again. And while she's earned less than some of her colleagues who've done campaigns for other fashion houses, she's much in demand these days, and in addition to clothing is currently promoting jewelry and perfume.
THOUGH THE careers of most models have an exceedingly short shelf life, there are exceptions to the rule. Several Israeli models have stayed in the game after hitting age 40, with the ageless Pnina Rosenblum continuing to serve as the face of her own cosmetics company even after her 50th birthday.
Another exception to the rule is sultry actress/model Smadar Kilchinski, the ex-wife of actors Assi Dayan and Sharon Alexander. Kilchinski has returned to modeling at 43, and is now set to front Duplo's fall/winter campaign. Several fashion houses seem finally to have realized that there's no cut-off age for women interested in fashion, and are using older models to lure potential customers.
"DON'T MISS the Moiseyev dancers," Russian Ambassador Gennady Tarasov is telling almost everyone he meets. Folk dance aficionados know the Moiseyev Dance Company as one of the best and most electrifying in the world. Founded in 1937 by Igor Alexandrovich Moiseyev, the group has earned rave reviews around the globe, and is now scheduled to perform in Israel between October 19 and 24. Tarasov says that Moiseyev, who turned 100 earlier this year, will travel with his ensemble to Israel, where it will perform once in Jerusalem and Haifa and three times in Tel Aviv.
Once a dancer with the Bolshoi Ballet, Moiseyev later became head choreographer at Moscow's Theater of Folk Art, where he brought together top dance professionals to combine ballet techniques with the authentic folk steps of the Soviet republics.
