12/23/06 :: Links Gone Live...

Just in time for the holidays, check out four new videos (and a print piece!) ready for your review. Take a look:

- Celebrate the holidays with my coverage of the Rodeo Drive Holiday Lighting Ceremony, featuring interviews with Alyssa Milano and Chris Klein.

- Watch my video coverage of the Tenacious D premiere, which includes interviews with Jack Black, Kyle Gass, and Sarah Silverman.

-Enjoy inside access at the Superman Returns DVD & Video Game Launch Party, where I interviewed Brandon Routh.

-Just in time for the holiday's, check out red carpet coverage from The Nativity Story premiere.

-I also had the chance to reconnect with Nancy Juvonen, the producer behind several box office hits (50 First Dates, Fever Pitch--to name a few). A couple years back, I'd interviewed her for Lindzi.com. This time, we chatted for a SavvyMiss feature. Check it out!

 

11/27/06 :: Home of the Brave...

I'm psyched to say that I sat down one-on-one with Samuel L. Jackson, Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson, Jessica Biel, newcomer Brian Presley (a star in the making!), and director Irwin Winkler for the Home of the Brave junket. I'll let you know when those video interviews go live. (Go see the film -- it's an interesting perspective on the Iraq war. It focuses on the soldiers and their experiences upon returning home.) I'm also headed to the premiere on Tuesday!

 

11/22/06 :: The Last Month...

Sorry it's been a month since I've updated. It's not that I didn't have much to write. It's that I've had too much and didn't know where to begin. I've covered the following events (bear with me) over the last 29 days:

944's Don't Tell My Booker party, the Stone Rose Lounge, LA Product Showcase with Rachel Zoe, Flicka Premiere (with Tim McGraw), Jamie Pressly's Fashion Show, an on-set visit with Seth Rogen's Super Bad film, Reichen Lehmkuhl's Book Party at the Abbey, Intuition's "Get With it Party" (attendees included Portia de Rossi, Marley Shelton), Patricia Arquette's Medium premiere party, Baywatch DVD Release Party with Pam Anderson, Bobby premiere, Superman II: The Richard Donner Cut screening, P.S. Arts Express Yourself with Chris Klein, The Dead Girl premiere with Brittany Murphy, TMZ's Anniversary party, a photo shoot with the girls of Deal or No Deal, the Tenacious D premiere, karaoke night with the cast of How I Met Your Mother, and The Invisible Children's Red Is for Emmy party (hosted by Ben McKenzie)...

Do you forgive me? Tonight, I'm off to a Superman Returns DVD Release party. Then, a photo shoot with the super sweet Kaylee Defer. Videos, interviews, and articles to soon follow. In the meantime, check out my red carpet coverage of the Medium Premiere Party with Patricia Arquette!

 

10/17/06 :: Fashion Week Chaos...

I finally have a second to breathe... so don't ask why I'm still sitting in front of a computer. I've been doing coverage for Fashion Week (including an event with stylist Rachel Zoe, a couple of 944 parties, shows at Smashbox, and a show with Jamie Pressly in the works). More on everything later. For now, check out my article from the Macy's Passport featuring Sharon Stone, Brooke Shields, and Elizabeth Taylor. Here's a link to check it out!

 

9/6/06 :: Tarina Tarantino...

If you've been with me from the beginning, then you know I'm a huge Tarina Tarantino fan. (No--no relation to director Quentin Tarantino; though, sources tell me he purchases her pieces to woo women. What can I say? The man's got taste!) Tarina's jewelry has been an obsession of mine since my teen years. A friendship developed somewhere along the way. A few weeks back, Tarina invited me to attend her appearance at UCLA's "How Does She Do It?" series. I was inspired to dedicate the new "loves" section to her. Be sure to check it out!

 

8/23/06 :: A Scanner Darkly...

I'm bringing busy back.... (Ahh, sorry-- couldn't help the Justin Timberlake reference. It's everywhere.) But in all seriousness, I know it's been a few since I've kept you in the loop. My premiere and junket coverage of A Scanner Darkly (with Keanu Reeves!) are all over AMP'D Mobile phones. Pick one up to check it out. Otherwise, I'll try to get links up shortly. What else have I been up to? Besides AMP'D's kickin' X-Games party at Hollywood's Element:: the Mini's First Time junket with Nikki Reed, the Pirates of the Caribbean premiere, a trip to NYC, then San Francisco, and a little relaxin' in between. Now that summer's over, things are only going to get busier. Stay tuned.

 

6/29/06 :: Superman Returns...

Busy week of premieres: I recently inked a VJ deal with AMP'D Mobile Entertainment. I covered the Superman Returns premiere as my first event with them and chatted with all the films stars including Kevin Spacey, Brandon Routh, Kate Bosworth, Parker Posey, and James Marsden. Click here for the link to those video interviews.

 

 

6/19/06 :: Fast & Furious: Tokyo Drift...

Check out my video coverage of the Fast & Furious: Tokyo Drift Junket. I had the opportunity to jump in the car with one of the film's stunt drivers and, let me tell you, it's the ride of your life. I also attended the film's premiere. Those video interviews are also online. What now? I just returned from CineVegas, a nine day film festival hosted by Dennis Hopper. Catch the article online...

 

6/12/06 :: MTV Movie Awards...

When I was asked to cover the MTV Movie Awards, I figured it'd be another day in the life. I had no idea I'd suddenly find myself in the middle of an actual film set. After finding my spot on the press line, I looked to my immediate right and realized the "recognizable reporter from E!" was none-other-than actress Katherine Heigl (of Grey's Anatomy) and -- more over -- she was pregnant?! Surely, there had to be an explanation....

 

Turns out director Judd Apatow was shooting "Knocked Up," his follow-up to the 40-Year-Virgin. Because Heigl's character plays a red carpet reporter, they decided to shoot impromptu interviews at the MTV Movie Awards.

 

Click here to check out my own video coverage of the MTV Movie Awards featuring interviews with Owen Wilson, Brett Ratner, Katherine Heigl, Nick Carter, and Robert Rodriquez as well as exclusive b-roll from the upcoming film "Knocked Up..."

 

Also: Ever wondered what it's like to live like a movie star? I checked out Kari Feinstein's Style Lounge, a pre-MTV Movie Awards retreat where the stars were treated to goodies, manicures, and massages. Check out the "loves" section to hear more!

 

5/23/06 :: High School Musical...

The Disney Channel's High School Musical has become a phenomenon in the teen world. It's doing so well that Disney launched the DVD red carpet style. Naturally I attended to chat it up with the film's stars including Zac Efron, Vanessa Anne Hudgens, and Ashley Tisdale as well as other attendees including American Idol's Ace Young and Summerland's Lori Laughlin. Click here to check out my on-camera coverage!

 

5/15/06 :: Lindsay Lohan...

It's been a Lindsay Lohan filled week! I covered both her Just My Luck junket and premiere. My Teen People piece (which consists of both an article and video interviews) is available online. (Click the link to view it.)

Also, available online: my video interviews from the Just My Luck premiere featuring Lindsay and her co-stars Chris Pine, Samaire Armstrong, and Bree Turner! (Click the link to check it out!)

I have to share... Despite what tabloids say, I found Ms. Lohan to be an absolute doll. Upon introducing myself (as a fellow Lindzi) to Lindsay, she asked how I spelled my name. When I told her about the "Zi" spelling, she remarked, "Really? I've been thinking of changing my name. My mom gave me permission." From there, we bantered about my Isabella Fiore "Summer Love" bag (which she loved!), the Devendra Banhart q&a she compiled for Interview Magazine (which I told her I loved!)... and then our actual interview began!

Before parting ways, I teased, "If I see you spelling your name with a Zi, I'll know where it came from." She laughed and continued to chat more about Devendra. She even recommended a few of his songs to me. Although the conversation wasn't ready for a natural conclusion, my time was clearly up as they hearded the next journalist into the room. Ah, well! Till next time, check it all out!

 

4/27/06 :: American Dreamz...

So after my friend's first ever film audition, he landed his first ever film. And this film, now known to audiences as American Dreamz, just hit theatres nationwide. My friend is Sam Golzari and I'm proud to say he's pictured on the film's poster. I followed Sam as he prepared for the American Dreamz premiere. Click here to check out the video online!

 

4/16/06 :: Maxim Birthday Celebration...

A few weeks back, I traveled to Vegas for Maxim's 100th Birthday Celebration where the likes of Nicky Hilton, Kelly Hu (left), Cuba Gooding Jr., and Jamie Lynn Sigler partied it up at the Wynn Las Vegas. I caught up with nearly everyone there. Click here to check out my article!

 

4/13/06 :: Kids Choice Awards...

If you tuned in for the Kids Choice Awards, tune in for my orange carpet coverage, which debuted today. Click here to check it out! I interviewed everyone from Robin Williams (the highlight!) to Teddy Geiger, Kenny G, Sasha Cohen, and Jon Lovitz.

 

 

4/4/06 :: I'm on MSNBC...

I attended Fergie's Birthday Party at Hollywood's Citizen Smith  the other day... but who knew I'd get caught in a photo op for MSNBC? It ran on their web site. Gotta give credit to photographer Matthew Simmons, naturally...


 

 

3/30/06 :: Brick Video Interviews...

Brick is an indie film that's about to create a huge buzz. And if it doesn't... mainstream America is missing out. I already plugged my Emilie de Ravin interview. Two more are now available: Check out my interviews with the film's male lead Joseph Gordon-Levitt and director Rian Johnson!

 

 

3/28/06 :: On-air with Emilie de Ravin...

Emilie de Ravin is anything but Lost these days. In addition to her hit series, she has two films (The Hills Have Eyes, Brick) in theaters. I sat down with Ms. Emilie de Ravin for an on-camera interview in promotion of Brick. (I highly recommend it! The dialogue is really sharp!) Check out the interview!!

The following features recently hit newsstands: * My feature in Teen People on Lost's Malcolm David Kelley, one of Teen People's 20 Teens Who Will Change the World. *My cover story for CB Teen: Amanda Bynes. *My feature on Hollywood.com: Anthony Hopkins. Check them out!

 

 

3/13/06 :: Awards Season Complete...

Award season is over and out. My coverage ran all of the place -- including on Hollywood.com and Teen People. As always, if links are available, I'll be sure to post coverage. In the meantime, check out photos from pre-primping at the Fusion Studio D Oscars Suite under the "loves" section. In the meantime, I'm laying low... that is if you don't include the Rolling Stones concert I hit up in FL! (Mick Jagger is insane! So amazing!)

 

3/2/06 :: Oscar Chaos...

I'm already pacing myself. Between video interviews at the Brick press junket and NAACP Award coverage, I managed to line up the dress (Nicole Miller), shoes (sparkling silver heels!) and gigs for the big night! Stay tuned for details from Queen Latifah's Pre-Oscar Party with Vibe Magazine and the Celebration of Artistic Freedom Viewing and Post-Oscar party, honoring Mira Sorvino and the Oscar nominated film Crash (a personal favorite). First stop, the Fusion Studio D Oscars Suite and the Ask the Dust premiere this evening. Stay tuned...

 

2/9/06 :: Grammy Night...

Forget about The Grammy's... the real fun started at the Sony/BMG after-party. I chatted it up with stars like John Legend, Rose McGowan, and Natasha Bedingfield. My post-Grammy coverage can be found on Teen People's site. Click here to check it out!

 

 

2/6/06 :: Bryce Dallas Howard...

My one on one interview with Manderlay's Bryce Dallas Howard just debuted on Hollywood.com. Click here to check it out! Still to come: My adventures at Sundance and interview with Anthony Hopkins.... Stay tuned!

 

 

1/19/06 :: The Golden Globes...

How'd I kick off this week? With a trip to the Golden Globes! Check out my video interviews! Dressed in a simple black BCBG dress, I got the thumbs up from Joan & Melissa Rivers at the HBO After Party. Earlier in the evening, I covered the Golden Globe press room...I interviewed everyone from nominee Cynthia Nixon (she looked stunning!), winner S. Epatha Merkerson (she let me hold her Globe!), and jokester Kevin Dillon (who threatened to throw me in the pool!)... Next stop? The Sundance Film Festival. Also, get the behind-the-scenes scoop on the various Golden Globe Luxury Lounges.

 

1/13/06 :: The People's Choice Awards...

My feature on the People's Choice Awards is now up! Click here to check it out! And with Golden Globe madness approaching, I've been keeping busy at the Silver Spoon beauty buffet. I'll have the inside scoop (and pictures!) for you shortly. Also coming soon, inside HBO's Golden Globe after party...

 

 

1/12/06 :: Coming Soon...

It's been a busy week! Over the last couple days, I've interviewed James Franco (Tristan & Isolde), Anthony Hopkins (The Fastest Indian Ever), Bryce Dallas Howard (Manderlay), and tons of random stars in between at the People's Choice Awards. Features from d) all of the above are on their way. In the meantime, check out details from the VW Hollywood Celebration.

 

1/4/06 :: Grandma's Boy Video Interviews

If you love Adam Sandler, you'll likely be into Grandma's Boy, the latest release from his production company HappyMadison. The film follows the typical Sandler formula -- only a lot cruder. It's a combination of sex, drugs, video games, and grandmas. Intrigued?

Check out my video interviews with the cast -- including Allen Covert, Linda Cardellini, Shirley Jones, Shirley Knight, and Doris Roberts. The first time director, Nicholaus Goossen, wasn't present for the press day, which is unfortunate since he's hot. (And my sources tell me he's dating the film's female lead Linda Cardellini. I wonder which came first... the chicken or the egg? Hmmm...) Anyway, enjoy the interviews until the next feature...
