FanVestor Studios has launched Everything Hollywood, a new weekly video podcast, hosted by E! founder and winner of the 2014 Asian Television Awards for Outstanding Contribution to Asian Television Larry Namer and Omar Akram, the first Afghan-American to win a Grammy Award. Each week, Everything Hollywood will offer up an insider’s look at celebrity and lifestyle news from around the globe.
Brought to you by FanVestor, Everything Hollywood is the second show to launch as part of the FanVestor Podcast Network. In its pledge to connect fans with their favorite celebrities, the network will be adding a new show to its dynamic programming slate every two months through the end of 2022.
“As opposed to other shows about the business, Everything Hollywood provides unique insight from people who are actually in the center of the media and entertainment business and not simply reporting on it,” comments Namer. “We hope to be able to span the entire scope of the entertainment world in terms of coverage of the things the celebrities do outside of their core skill area. We’re here to cater to the fans and their favorite stars who cherish them.”
Guests featured on the premiere episode include Dr. Merry Taheri, CEO of Rising Health Inc. and a top advisor to the Biden Harris COVID Task Team, and global brand guru MISTER D.
The passion to care for humanity and to become a healthcare professional was instilled in Dr. Taheri, by her father, a surgeon and mother, a nurse. At the age two, her parents moved from New York City to Afghanistan, where her father held the position of a health minister, as well as the chief of the hospital in the province of Kandahar. At age seven, Dr. Taheri experienced a horrific and traumatic event that forever changed her life when her parents and four-year-old sister were assassinated by the Communist Russians due to her father’s repetitive refusal to join the party. She and her brother were brought back to America where her maternal grandparents and uncle raised them.
Dr. Taheri holds a Doctorate of Nurse Practice from the University of California San Francisco with over 22 years of healthcare experience specializing in family, emergency, trauma, education, forensics, and consulting. During the COVID pandemic her profession took a major turn when she became the Clinical Commander from March until September 2020 with COVID projects for the Department of Health Services, Los Angeles County. Today, Dr. Taheri continues to lead COVID testing operations with her clinical team on locations for film and music productions, businesses, large events, and private VIP clients. She was recently appointed as an advisor to the Biden Harris COVID Task Team by SEIU, representing millions of frontline workers.
MISTER D is a legendary Hollywood brand architect that turns fashion names into rock star status like Ed Hardy, Versace and NARS cosmetics. MISTER D along with the iconic designer/original club kid Richie Rich, known for his sought after celebrity-must-wear fashion collections like the famed Heatherette fashion label, this summer are jointly launching a new digital platform BEAUTYKWEEN, the world’s first virtual makeup club.
