  1. I Need An Apartment By Rhonda Hansome

    Thursday, August 1, 2013

    Well, it did not resemble my tour doing stand-up opening for Anita Baker in venues like Radio City Music Hall across the country, but I did have a blast on the road as The Bar Owner in the rock musical

    Instead of two years humming songs like, Giving You The Best That I Got, You Belong To Me, and Good Love; I spent a month humming: You Suck 'Cause You Stood Me Up, I'm Not A Stalker I'm Just Calling You A Lot and Penis In My Thigh.  Yes that's right Penis In My Thigh, during which I got to lead the audience in singing along with the chorus:

    "Penis in my thigh, penis in my thigh, penis in." and  repeat!

                        I had the opportunity to work with some very talented actress- singers like...
        Leah Fox, Chelsey Keding, Leah Keele, Ashley Menard w band members Joe & Alex looking on

                We garnered a good review in Columbus, I arrived home safely, and then my landlady...

    Dear Reader you ask, "Your landlady who opened your door (in a non-emergency) and left it unlocked the entire week you were in Israel doing the Rhonda Hansome Comedy Divorced & Bitter Tour?"

    Why yes, that exact same landlady who ignored my requests for a lease and regular rent receipts. She wants me out of my apartment so she can have it - NOW.

    I need an apartment, NOW. So all three of you spread the word that I'm looking to pay $800 - $900 per month for a 1 bedroom (yeah I'm dreaming) in a not crazy neighborhood. The joke's on me. In the 9 years since I've returned to Bed-Stuy, it's become so gentrified I can't afford to live here anymore.

    If you hear of anything under $1200 a month give me a holler!!

    Rhonda Hansome is an actress, writer, director and stand-up comic. You may soon see her doing all of those things on a street corner near you.

    1. My suggestion: the Bedford Park area in the Bronx. D and 4 trains stop at Bedford Park Blvd. It's the stop for Lehman College and Botanical Gardens. Even there, some renovated apartments are costly but you can still find a deal.

    3. too much for coincidence. good luck finding your new home.

      Rhonda sorry to hear that. A landlord did that to me once too. Good luck with your search.
