If you were in South Jersey and breathing over the Labor Day vacation, you doubtless heard that actor Bradley Cooper was "Do-ing AC" and territory this weekend.

The Oscar winner and his Russian swimsuit/supermodel girlfriend Irina Shayk were in Brigantine visiting his mom, Gloria Campano.

While the dazzling duo were in town, they were spotted in several local eateries and sightings filled social media locally.

Well, now the pack of hungry paparazzi who make their living supplying dirt for the tabloids have caught on to the couple's trip and the story in making headlines around the world. So is South Jersey.

And, even if some of the national media don't know the difference between Brigantine and Atlantic City any more than they know a green-head from green tea, we'll take the love, thank you very much!

Have a look at some of this always-needed publicity for our local beaches and shore towns because of Bradley and his babe. I say "bravo Bradley" for shining a light on our little part of the world! Come back any time and bring other good-looking, rich people with you!
