WeHo Residents Give ‘Safer at Home’ a Shout, Cheer, and Whistle

ADVERTISEMENT

At 8 o’clock Friday night residents of West Hollywood opened their windows, stepped onto their balconies or walked outside their apartment buildings or houses to vocalize their pent-up energy.

The cheers, laughs, whistles, and applause were organized by the Westview Towers homeowners association. Joyce Corradetti, president of the Westview Towers, which is on La Cienega Boulevard near Fountain, said it was a way for residents to show their support for healthcare workers “that are working daily, on the front lines to save lives here in our community and around the world.”

The cheers, laughter and applause spread even farther with those on Hacienda Place and Alta Loma Road also participating as a way for them to relieve the stress of social isolation mandated by the “Safer at Home” order issued by the L.A.  County Health Department on March 19. That order, which was to have ended on April 19, today was extended through May 15. It is intended to keep us so far apart from one another that we don’t spread the COVID-19 virus by laughing, sneezing, coughing, or kissing.

It all lasted just a few minutes, and then everyone stepped back inside, with most of them, like this writer, probably still having smiles on their faces after having been spent the day cooped up all alone (or with that same old spouse, partner or roommate).

If you missed it, take a look at the video below posted on Instagram by Ron Torres (RonTorres9) where you can hear the celebration up and down Alta Loma Road. And there is a video posted by Simone Tai (@SimoneTaiMeditates) that shows Sean Hancock (@sean.hancock.182), who Tai says was beating the drum (or actually a pot) at her home.

The 8 p.m. vocal demonstration happened across  the country, with many of its participants joining a new Facebook group called “Go Outside and Howl at 8 pm” that already has more than half a million members. That group’s members include more than a dozen identified as residents of West Hollywood as well as residents of 99 other countries.  It is promoting a nightly “howl” at 8 p.m. in its members’ time zones.

The laughter and applause and whistles are similar to what is going on in cities like Milan and Madrid, where the COVID-19 pandemic has been especially brutal. However. in those cities, residents typically stand outside on the balconies and sing or play instruments.

In many communities in the United States, the 8 p.m. “howl” is a way to voice support for healthcare workers who are on the front lines of the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic, which to date has infected 8,430 L.A. County residents and resulted in the deaths of 241

But it’s also a way to reduce the stress and pain and frustration from being isolated and stuck at home.

I like to comment too about this Woman Krissy Schuh. She is one of the worst people to know. Everything out of her mouth are just lies. She told us she worked 20yrs for NBC that’s untrue. And Jim Hall who actually does work for NBC says she’s never once. Jim Hall said Krissy tells people that. As a cover story. Krissy used to be an Attorney and was Disbarred about 10yrs ago. She stole a lot of Money from her clients. And Jim Confirms they all Sued her. And she lossed her privilege to practice Law. Another words. She’s… Read more »

I just read it too. Rick is in some real legal 💩.
.
He should have kept his nose clean. But he didn’t and now he will have to pay the price. Greed.
.
It’s his own fault. Fraud is a big deal.

He’s a fool.

There’s tons of articles and blogs written about Rick Schmutzler and why he was so quick to sell Gymbar. Let’s say. It was an opportunity we did not say no too. We got a great deal. 👍

My friend who’s BF is Erik Braverman. They bought Gymbar in West Hollywood.

.

And the rumor about Rick Schmutzler is no rumor. Because of Lawsuits involving him in the Krissy Schuh Fraud. Rick is selling off his Bars in order to pay for Lawyer fees. Another words. Rick is in deep legal trouble.

Hi, I would like to clarify the reason for our 8 pm ritual which started on Friday, April 10th. Westview Towers wanted the neighborhood to show their appreciation for the health care workers on the front lines here in West Hollywood and around the world. This ritual actually started in other countries and we wanted to join in and show our appreciation for them.

Thank you,
Joyce Corradetti

Henry, Thank you for your article but the reason we all went outside at 8pm the last two nights in W Hollywood was because we were supporting the health care workers and not bc we are cooped up and have extra energy to just scream.

Our town supports the healthcare workers first before us and our inconvenience. I hope to see a corrected article.

Thanks for letting me know Michelle. I have updated the story to recognize the reason the residents of Westview Towers organized this. However, the event has spread to other streets, including mine, where those in my building and others nearby saw it as a fantastic way to engage with one another and relieve some of our stress. Clearly this was a great idea.

By 8pm the bar was nearly empty … ba-ha ha ha ga ha ha ha. Dude. They only went for the freebies. And 3 years later her ass is in Court. She’s being… Read more »

And it got shut down in 2019 by the court. And she was charged with investment fraud. . And she stole money from back when she was a Lawyer. And in 2014 she was Dusbarred. . After she was Dusbarred Krissys life just continued to spiral down. To the point she lost everything. . Today…. you can find her drinking away during Happy Hour GymBar in West Hollywood.

Everything about her is a lie. You know she used to be a Jawyer. And she was Dusbarred in 2012. She stole her clients money. Then she started that App thing. And stole money from all her investors and they sued. PMGI Financial has a 50k Judgment against her. And Southwest Law School has a Judgment too on her. So it doesn’t surprise me that people like Giovanni Vitulli is in Legal trouble. He helped her. Ernie Perez too. Ernie moved to Boston to run away from his involvement. The Lawyer she hired Michael Joseph Gulden was Dusbarred. I read… Read more »

Krissy Schuh is the one that’s a lesbian right. And was Disbarred. The same one that owed money to investors and stole thier money. So n Ean to say the Gymbar guy. The owner is the same one she got to help in her investment fraud.

Am I right and got it right. I went to a Halloween party In 3yrs b4 Covid our break.

Lenny Shepherd was helping out at that party. He invited me.

If it’s the same one that had the Halloween party. Then I met her.
