(HEAT INTERVIEW) The multi-talented Evan Golden

Tuesday, June 5th, 2018

From host, print model, entertainment correspondent, philanthropist, athlete, and reality TV star, to being the breakout star on Ivana Trump’s reality show, Evan has been putting in work and seeing massive results.

The Florida native has quite an impressive resume that includes national commercials, TV appearances, hosting, and so much more. He currently hosts “Eye on South Florida”, a role in which he has had the opportunity to interview countless celebrities. In addition, he was recently nominated for the “Real Men Wear Pink Campaign” supporting the American Cancer Society. Evan says he stepped up to help fight breast cancer with all he has, while emphasizing the fact that both women and men can be affected by the disease. Most importantly, Evan says he recognizes that he is in a position of influence and that he is obligated to use his position wisely and to shine his light. All of that aside though, his most important role is likely that of a family man.

Suffice it to say, Evan is a busy man who is using his celebrity for good. It is no wonder why he has been blessed with such golden opportunities. He is truly a one-man show whose talent, personality and high energy stands out. It is because of this that he is highly sought after. It is also because of these qualities that we are confident it will not be long before Evan takes his place among the superstars of his generation.

We recently caught up with Evan Golden and here’s what he had to say:

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: Growing up, who influenced you the most?

EVAN GOLDEN: My parents influenced me the most. They gave my sister and me the ability to pursue our passions and have showed us the meaning of true love and the importance of family.

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: You have an interesting story. If you had to pinpoint one moment that solidified your entering the entertainment industry, what would that be?

EVAN GOLDEN: Being cast on Ivana Trump’s reality show, “Ivana Young Man” was one of the most exhilarating television experiences of my life. Ivana Trump personally hand-picked me to be on the show, as I was one of 6 bachelors given the opportunity of luxury, fame and riches. Spoiler Alert – I made it to the Final 2. If you have not watched this reality show, it’s a must see. You will laugh, cry and be in suspense the entire time.

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: Do you think excelling in sports helps you in your current career?

EVAN GOLDEN: In sports you learn valuable life lessons. You learn how to work as a team, taking directions, making effort, overcoming adversity, and responding to defeat. Practice makes perfect. Many aspects, I use every day in life. I have learned through team and organized sports.

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: What has been your favorite “gig” so far and why?

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: What motivates you?

EVAN GOLDEN: I am motivated to be a good human and role model for my two sons to look up to and be proud of. I am a leader in my community and will help heal us as we try to overcome the Parkland Shooting Massacre.

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: What are you currently working on?

EVAN GOLDEN: Currently I have been nominated for the “Real Men Wear Pink Campaign” on behalf of the American Cancer Society, so I am raising money for breast cancer.

A family of thieves allegedly targeted a Toy R Us store in South Florida with children playing a role in the brazen theft. A mother, father and their seven kids all descended upon the store in Boca Raton, but it wasn’t to pick out holiday gifts, but rather steal from the store.

Cameras caught the family of nine, which included kids between the ages of three and 13, making off with a couple of gadgets.

Upon entering the store, the group made their way over towards the electronics section where the tablets were on display.

According to investigators, the children appeared in and out of the video as if they were climbing under the cabinets.

Meet Bedly Alcide of Street Media Hype

Sunday, June 23rd, 2013

bedly1All too often in the media, independent music artists are shown little to no love – and sometimes even when a light is shone on them, the promotion they get is just not enough. Meet Bedly Alcide, publisher of Street Media Hype.


Bedly has taken Street Media Hype from a vision in startup mode to a whole brand. Residing in Miami, Florida, Bedly sees the beauty in many things, as well as in our independent artists. He strives to put the focus on them and them alone, never taking enough credit for himself. He is living the true American dream and once you read his interview, you’ll know why.


The Heat had a chance to catch up with Bedly to find out why he does what he does – and here’s what we found:

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: Tell us about yourself.

BEDLY ALCIDE: I was born in Haiti. I came to the United States when I was thirteen years old. I’m single with no kids and I have love music, mostly by independent artists. I travel, love photography and movies. My mother left me in Haiti when I was only three months old. I met her when she came back to pick me up to come to the United States. I never met my father. My mom passed away last year. She was a good woman and I loved her. She worked her butt off to put food on the table. She didn’t sleep with no man to get it either. She was a true bosslady.

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: Let our readers know about Street Media Hype – its mission and what all it does to help promote independent artists.

BEDLY ALCIDE: First, let me tell you what the name means. “Street” means independent, indie, upcoming entertainers such as models, rappers, singers, etc. “Media” is the site. “Hype” is how we help promote these entertainers to noticed or get exposure.

Ex-Lover Set His Girlfriend On Fire At 7-Eleven (Video)

Monday, June 11th, 2012

A woman was severely burned after being covered in gasoline and set on fire by her knife-wielding ex-boyfriend and father of her child, police said.

The 40-year-old, who has not been named, suffered the horrific attack outside a 7-Eleven store in South Florida following a row with Roosevelt Mondesir, when they met so that she could pick up her son.

She was waiting outside the store in her silver Mercedes at around 3am on Monday when Mondesir showed up in his white Jaguar without the boy and began hurling the fuel over her, Boynton Beach Police spokeswoman Stephanie Slater said.

She tried to run away and headed into the store for safety, attempting to hold the door shut.

But the 52-year-old man chased her with a large knife, possibly a machete, got the door open to pull her out and then ignited her.

In graphic surveillance video which captured the horrifying attack, a man can be seen threatening a woman with a large knife, struggling in the doorway of the store.

Local poet Will Da Real One gunned down in North Miami

Monday, May 30th, 2011

Miami’s budding world of poetry and spoken-word performance lost a defining voice early Sunday after gunmen shot and killed local poet Will “Da Real One’’ Bell outside the North Miami cafe where he had plied his trade for years and given a venue to countless other wordsmiths.

Bell, 47, whose performances have been featured on HBO’s Def Poetry Jam, had just closed his business, the Literary Cafe and Poetry Lounge on 933 NE 125th Street, at about 12:40 a.m. and was walking to his car nearby when another car occupied by at least two men pulled up beside him, said Lt. Neal Cuevas of the North Miami Police Department.

A gunman leapt out from the passenger seat and fired multiple times at Bell, who died on the scene, Cuevas said. The men then fled in the car, but did not take any of Bell’s possessions, which included cash and jewelry.

“We don’t have a motive right now,’’ Cuevas said.

Several witnesses, who had been inside The Literary Cafe earlier that night, offered police differing descriptions of the suspects’ car color as light and dark, with a spoiler on the rear.

Bell will be missed in South Florida’s poetry and spoken-word performance scene, where he loomed as a local laureate, having achieved national recognition with performances on Def Poetry Jam and on albums by artists such as Miami’s Pit Bull, and hosting open-mic nights at his Literary Cafe and other venues.

Standing nearly 6-feet-5, Bell cast an imposing presence on stage, where he delivered prose honed from a life of poverty, fatherlessness, crime and prison — before finding redemption through words.


Wife found guilty in murder-for-hire plot

Monday, May 16th, 2011

Dalia Dippolito, the South Florida woman accused of hiring a hit man to kill her husband, has been found guilty.

After only three hours of deliberation, a jury found Dippolito guilty Friday of solicitation to commit first-degree murder, reports.

You’ve seen a greedy, manipulative, evil woman who won’t stop at anything to get what she wants,” prosecutor Elizabeth Parker said in closing arguments, reports the station.

Prosecutors say she plotted to kill her husband Michael Dippolito in August 2009. She was seen on police surveillance telling the hit man, who was really an undercover police officer, that she was sure she wanted Michael Dippolito dead, according to the station.

Dippolito claims she was acting for a reality TV show.
