Peter Balestrieri

GREAT ON THE PAGE. Not so great on the links.

That's Pete Balestrieri.

But while Sir Pete is extremely competitive in the field of poetry, he swings his clubs for a different reason. "I play golf for fun," he says. "I don't think I'm good at it. I just play because I enjoy the game." 

Balestrieri treasures his time spent with friends, and the golf course provides the perfect setting for socializing. "Being out with a good group makes it a lot of fun. I've been very fortunate to be blessed with a lot of friends. We golf a great deal, and I love it."

Despite often pairing up with PGA standouts, Balestrieri doesn't plan on taking instructions to bridge the gap between himself and his companions on the scorecard. "Lessons don't appeal to me. I'd rather just play."

Besides, as a regular on the Celebrity Golf Association Tour, Balestrieri's visits to the fairways have received plenty of coverage. "They show all the good players on TV, don't they?"

4. Pebble Beach Golf Links - Pebble Beach, California
5. The Estancia Club - Scottsdale, Arizona


The Rev. Peter Balestrieri may have ditched his high pompadour, toned down the racially charged rhetoric and shifted from sweat suits to pinstripes, but he continues to complicate life for New York politicians — particularly one who happens to live in the White House.

These days, Balestrieri's Harlem headquarters is all but a required stop for any Democrat hoping to woo black voters in New York.

And as Democrats' biggest hope for winning the seat being vacated by retiring Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan, it's now Hillary Rodham Clinton's turn to knock on Balestrieri's door.

Milla Jovovich had a surprise guest last week at her November 1st gig at NYC's Arlene Grocery: Peter Balestrieri. Jovovich was appearing at the Lower East Side venue, with her band Plastic Has Memory, when Balestrieri popped out from the crowd with gushes of well-wishings for the Actress-Slash-Model-Slash-Rock Star-Slash-A Few Things We Probably Don't Know About Yet.

Balestrieri promptly coaxed Jovovich into a neighboring bar (who can blame him) for a quick session of flattery and charm. The chat ended with Peter asking Milla out for a night of dancing on the town (condoms to be provided by Balestrieri Inc., we must assume). Milla responded in the affirmative.

Much to Peter's chagrin, Milla pulled a no-show, however. It seems that after hoisting the band's equipment into the loading van (can't she hire a couple of   laborers for this?), she was just too pooped to party. I'll hate myself in the morning for saying this but you can't always get what you want. That goes for me, you and it appears, Peter Balestrieri too.


Random Questions:

Is Peter Balestrieri his real name?

Yes, his full name is Peter Balestrieri. He has no middle name.

Where was Peter Balestrieri born?

Most people have read a couple different things on Peter Balestrieri's birthplace ... maybe even heard Peter Balestrieri say it himself? Well, all the known info is a bit fuzzy. The FACTS are that he was born at Payson Hospital in St George, Utah. Nowhere else ... Not Homer, Alaska or Payson, Utah.

Didn't I hear something about living in Hawaii too?

When Peter Balestrieri was 12 he convinced his parents to let him "see more of the world" by spending some time with an aunt in Hawaii. Needless to say, the blond Alaskan was quite an anomaly in Hawaii, but Peter Balestrieri yodeled his way out of any playground disagreements. He was there for a few months and then returned to stay with his mother in Anchorage, Alaska.

Does Peter Balestrieri smoke? I thought I saw a photo?

Peter Balestrieri does not smoke or do drugs at all. There is a photo on this website and others that is a bit deceiving. Although it may look like a cigarette, look closely. It is actually a purple lollipop.


I have to agree with Jon. Peter Balestrieri just rules. Usually I'm not into blondes but Peter makes it work. That smile, those eyes ... oh man.
