12/9/07 :: Movies Rock...

Did you catch CBS' Movies Rock special on Friday? What'd you think? I hit the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood last week to catch the live taping before it actually aired. Prior to their performances, I caught up with Fergie and Mary J. Blige. Check out my coverage online by clicking this link!

Just in time for the holidays, I helped InStyle gather celebs' favorite gifts. Click here to check out what Emile Hirsch, Eve, and Miley Cyrus had to say!

Tonight, I'm headed to the premiere of PS I Love You with Hilary Swank... More to come soon!

 

11/29/07 :: A Month in Review...

I'll come right out and say it... it's been a month. I admit it and I'm sorry. I've disappointed my grandmother who checks this web site regularly. For those of you who share her concern, rest assure -- I'm alive. I've just been enjoying a mix of working and vacationing.

Check out my latest video coverage from: BAFTA's Britannia Awards (with honoree Denzel Washington), Motorola's 9th Anniversary Party, and the American Music Awards (with Miley Cyrus, Mary J. Blige, and Ashley Tisdale).

Print coverage is also online from: the Margot at the Wedding screening, Maxim's Assassin's Creed party, Samsung's BlackJack II Launch with Eva Longoria, 7 For All Mankind store opening, The Savages premiere, Love in the Time of Cholera premiere, and the American Music Awards.

Huge shout outs to Radcliffe Denim who held a beautiful evening of drinks, denim, and dinner at the Chateau Marmont -- as well as to Billion Dollar Babes, who always throws a magnificent event! (More to come on both events soon.) In the meantime, I've 'rounded up my picks for this year's Best of Beauty. Take a look at the spread in the "loves" section.

Oh and on newstands now! In the December '07 issue (with Natalie Portman on the cover), check out coverage from a Stella McCartney party with Courtney Cox, Cindy Crawford, and Kate Beckinsale. (I'll try to get a copy online shortly.)

That was a mouth full... or rather a month full!

 

10/30/07 :: Louis Vuitton's Murakami Gala...

Finally caught up on sleep today... I needed to recover from a very busy Sunday night. I'd attended Louis Vuitton's Murakami Gala, which celebrated LV's artistic director Marc Jacobs and Japanese artist Takashi Murakami. I wasn't the only one on the scene. Far from. Other attendees included Christina Ricci, Kerry Washington, Ellen DeGeneres & Portia de Rossi, Naomi Campbell... not to mention Owen Wilson and a performance from Kanye West. I caught up with everyone for InStyle's January issue. It'll be on newsstands in a few months. In the meantime, check out the Murakami Gala online story.

Last night, I hit up Family Guy's 100th Episode Party, where the faces behind the voices hit Social Hollywood. I caught up with Seth MacFarlane, Seth Green, Mila Kunis on-camera. Click here to take a look at my video coverage!

A couple days earlier, I chatted with Denise Richards, Carmen Electra, and Jewel when they joined Dr. 90210 for the launch party for Dr. Rey's Shapewear. Check out my video interviews. On-camera we chatted about the line. Off camera we chatted about everyone's upcoming Halloween plans... Speaking of, have a safe one tomorrow!

 

10/23/07 :: LA Fashion Week...

"Isn't it Fashion Week somewhere in the world?" joked Cindy Crawford a few weeks back. She was correct then and she's correct now. While Los Angeles Fashion Week technically kicked off on Sunday, I'd already covered a few pre events leading up to the action. Here's the week broken down:

Thursday, the 11th: From Jeffrey Sebelia (of Project Runway)'s show to Louis Verdad (where I bumped into friend and jewelry designer Tarina Tarantino) to Eduardo Lucero's grand final at the BoxEight shows, I'd already had my fill of fashion in downtown Los Angeles -- all in one night.

Sunday, the 14th: It was off to the 2 B Free show where socialite Kim Kardashian followed Paris Hilton's lead by walking in their Spring '08 show at Boulevard3. Any words of wisdom? "I’ve gotten advice from everyone! From Kimora Lee Simmons to Tyson Beckford… All the best models in the world!"

Monday, the 15th: I hit Merecdes-Bens Fashion Week at Smashbox Studios where Elsie Katz Couture, Joseph Domingo, & Heatherette showed off their upcoming collections. Click the link for coverage!

Tuesday, the 16th: A small break from FW to celebrate a new necessity: the Sidekick LX! Check out my video interviews from T-Mobile's launch party at The Clubhouse!

Wednesday, the 17th: Back to FW at it's finest. Christian Louboutin celebrated his West Coast arrival at the S Bar, hosted by Saks Fifth Avenue -- where I interviewed Hayden Panettiere, Molly Sims, Minka Kelly, and Olivia Wilde on-camera. Click here to check out all the on-camera action!

Thursday, the 18th: I joined Eva Longoria's labor of love, The 7th Annual El Sueno De Esperanza, which brought out the likes of Jessica Alba, Nicolette Sheridan, and Mario Lopez.

Friday, the 19th: Rock & Republic hosted a dinner and after-party where Paris Hilton & Christina Milian gathered to celebrate the denim line. I tagged along and bumped into a ton of old friends.

Sunday, the 21st: The Camp Ronald McDonald Halloween Carnival got a little help from Marcia Cross & Vanessa Williams, who attended in an effort to raise money for a children with cancer sleepaway camp.

 

10/10/07 :: Women in Film...

The Glamour Reel Moments premiere celebrated women in film... and not just any women. Three leading ladies (Kirsten Dunst, Kate Hudson, and Rita Wilson) had the chance to get behind the camera. Last night marked their directorial debuts at the Clinique sponsored premiere. I covered all the action on-camera with interviews from Kirsten, Kate, and Rita... not to mention, the ever-so-supportive Tom Hanks who was on hand to support his multi-talented wife. Click here to check out the coverage!

In other recent news, check out my print coverage from the Mary Norton Store Opening (with Rebecca Gayheart), the Elizabeth: The Golden Age premiere (with Cate Blanchett), & Hollywood Life Style Awards (with Pete Wentz) as well as video interviews from Declare Yourself (with Kristen Bell), Lust Caution premiere (with director Ang Lee), Oceana Event (with Al Gore)& Rolling Stone Hot Party (with Emilie Hirsch). More to come...

 

9/24/07 :: Exclusive with Emmy Rossum...

I can't recall the last time I spoke with a celeb on the phone, but it's refreshing to have someone's undivided attention. Just the other day, I caught up with the gorgeous Emmy Rossum to discuss her new album (and rumors of her leaving acting behind). It appears exclusively on this site. Take a look. (PS. Don't get me wrong. I love covering Hollywood premieres and parties -- and Emmy loves attending them -- but there's something serene about chit chatting without a party blaring in the background.)

 

9/22/07 :: The Emmy's and some...

While most were out covering Emmy pre-parties, I had the pleasure of attending a daytime event at Stella McCartney's West Hollywood boutique. The afternoon brought out the likes of Kate Beckinsale, Courtney Cox, Cindy Crawford, Gabrielle Reece, and Angie Harmon. There's a brief write-up online, but full coverage will appear in InStyle's upcoming December issue.

Speaking of InStyle articles, my Chrysalis Butterfly Ball feature is in the current October issue (with Katharine Heigl on the cover). I'll try to get a copy online shortly -- otherwise, be sure to check it out!

In other news, it was a busy Emmy weekend. I covered the HBO After-Party, held at the Pacific Design Center. Check out my coverage online. (It will additionally be appearing in InStyle's November issue.) Yes... lots of print features to come. Very exciting! Also this week: Sean Penn's Into the Wild premiere, the Good Luck Chuck premiere with Jessica Alba & Dane Cook, and Teen Vogue's Young Hollywood Party.

 

9/12/07 :: MTV Video Music Awards...

I'm back from the MTV Video Music Awards chaos -- returning to Emmy insanity, but I wouldn't have it any other way. Over the weekend, I hit a number of pre-parties including Tao's X-Box Oasis, Pharrell's Samsung Gleam Dinner (also at Tao, where I spotted Ashlee Simpson & Pete Wentz privately dining on vegetable dumplings and Grilled Kobe Ribeye veuve), 50's Cent's Absolut Party @ Body English (one of the parties that contributed to Britney's listless performance), and Rolling Stone's 40th Anniversary party at Hard Rock. For all my VMA weekend coverage, click here!

 

9/7/07 :: September in Full Gear...

Today is my one day off before hitting the MTV circuit... so why am I on here writing? Why not! It's what I do. This past week, I hit a variety of events from a sit down video interview with Bindi Irwin in Vegas to video interviews at California Speedway's Running Wide Open Party with Jeff Gordon & Rihanna. The week ended with a video shoot behind-the-scenes of Tori Spelling's People Magazine photo shoot. Just last night, I caught up with Harry Potter himself -- Daniel Radcliffe -- at the premiere of his first non-Potter film, December Boys. Click here to view that video! Otherwise, this weekend, it's off to Vegas (again!) for the MTV Video Music Awards pre and post parties. Then it's back to Los Angeles for the Emmy insanity! Links to come as soon as I have a chance to breathe.

 

8/27/07 :: The Busiest Slow Month...

Things were rumored to slow down in LA this month -- with most celebs party hopping in the Hamptons, but such was not the case. Yesterday, I did live coverage from the Teen Choice Awards for InStyle. Click here to check that out! A day earlier, I conducted video interviews at the Balls of Fury premiere. (Be sure to watch the video!) Earlier this month, I covered the 3:10 to Yuma premiere (with Christian Bale & Russell Crowe, both are intense characters), Superbad premiere (GO SEE IT! So funny!), the Young, Fabulous, and Broke party at the LG Malibu Beach House, video interviews at the 11th Hour premiere (with Leonardo DiCaprio, click to check out), the Stolichnaya elit Auction (with Rosario Dawson), Moss Store Opening (with Molly Sims), Poloroid Beach House (with Ali Larter)... well, anyway, you get that point. More premieres, parties, and coverage from The MTV Music Awards (in Vegas!) coming soon....

 

7/31/07 :: Eclectic Coverage...

Still on the go... It's definitely been an eclectic group of events lately. I did video interviews at Kitson's Hairspray Jewelry Launch. The kids are really sweet and I adored the movie. Go see it! Next, I hit up the decadestwo Boutique Launch, where I was snubbed by Ali Larter, caught on camera. It's a brilliant moment! Comedy Central's Flavor Flav Roast proved to be one of the more interesting carpets. I spoke, on-camera, with Snoop Dogg, Ice-T, and other chaotic characters. A few days later, I joined actress Ana Ortiz (who's SO sweet!) at the Chateau Marmont for a dinner honoring designer Nicole Miller. Other events I've hit up: the DesignCare Benefit with Jim Carrey, Jenny McCarthy, and Eddie Murphy, the Hot Rod premiere with Isla Fisher, the Stardust premiere with Claire Danes, Michelle Pfeiffer, & Robert DeNiro, and the Inspi(Red) Event with Black Eyed Peas' Apl.de.Ap.

 

7/13/07 :: The ESPY Awards...

This week I found myself in jet-setting territory. After a week (vacation!) in Miami, I hopped on a plane and arrived back in Los Angeles just in time to cover the ESPY Awards. Though my body was still on east coast time, I hit the event's red carpet, press room, and two after parties... Two hours of typing later, the morning/day/evening was complete at 2 am. (You do the math -- my body thought it was 5 am!) Quite an experience. I don't know how these celebrities do it without having a "John Stamos does Australia" moment. Despite the long hours, the experience was well worth it! Take a look at my coverage of The 15th Annual ESPY Awards for InStyle.com. (I had the chance to chat with Maria Sharapova, Carmen Electra, LeBron James, etc.)

 

6/29/07 :: The BET Awards...

Like every award show, the party doesn't begin or end the day of the event. So naturally I found myself at events leading up to The BET Awards' 3 hour press line... On Sunday, I headed to Mr. Chow's for the American debut of Kedar Massenburg's K'orus Wine. Guests like Vivica A. Fox & Stevie Wonder sampled Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot – the first three wine varietals from the collection. I had the chance to chat with Mr. Wonder about his evening, his friendship with Kedar, and his taste for wine. It was an honor -- even if it was silly chit chat. The next night, I headed to The Pre-BET Awards' "My Black is Beautiful" Dinner Party, at Boulevard3, where CEO Debra Lee hosted the likes of LL. Cool J., Ashanti, T.I., Gabrielle Union, Tyrese, Nelly, etc. The evening was a who's who of hip hop. For video interviews from the evening, click here. Finally -- the big day -- check out my coverage from The BET Awards online. The next night, I headed to the Transformers premiere and after-party.

 

6/17/07 :: The 34th Annual Daytime Emmys...

It's been a crazy couple days preparing, covering, and completing the 34th Annual Daytime Emmys. A day before the big day, I headed to the show's official gift lounge where presenters had a chance to customize their own goodie bag. The following day, I returned to the lounge to catch up with Elisabeth Hasselbeck (of The View), who made the 'rounds with Joy Behar and Barbara Walters, who wore a pink velour sweat suit while swag shopping. No sign of Rosie, but no matter. Hasselbeck was super sweet! From there, I changed (in my car!) into a black Bordeaux dress and headed to the red carpet. Not quite the way of the stars, but it was definitely spontaneous! For all of my coverage, click here! (Ellen DeGeneres was one of the evening's big winners.)

 

6/13/07 :: The Chrysalis Butterfly Ball and more...

So much to tell. The highlight of recent days? The Chrysalis Butterfly Ball (hosted by Rebecca Gayheart-Dane and attended by Tom Cruise, Jennifer Hudson, Mary J. Blige, Ellen Pompeo, Patrick Dempsey, Kate Walsh, and... well you get the picture -- a lot of hot celebs!). Some of my coverage ran on InStyle.com, but there's more to come in the upcoming October issue. Keep an eye out. Other fun events over the last couple weeks have included: MTV Movie Awards, Big Love premiere (Ginnifer Goodwin is such a doll!), Spike TV Guy's Choice Awards, You Kill Me premiere (with Luke Wilson & Tea Leoni -- click for video interviews), The Blackberry Curve Party, the Diesel Melrose Avenue Flagship opening (click for video interviews), a visit to the My Boys set, and the 1408 premiere (with Samuel L. Jackson & John Cusack).

 

5/22/07 :: Fergie, Queen Latifah, and more...

When your grandmother continually requests a new site update -- you know it's time. (Shout out to Grandma Fran!) I've been crazed with a variety of assignments including: The Healthy Child Healthy World Launch Party (with Jenna Elfman), Napoleon Perdis Store Opening (click for video interviews), an on-set visit to Dresden Doll's latest music video, Jeanette Jenkins' book launch hosted by Queen Latifah, the Shrek premiere, a Bvlgari Luncheon (with Blythe Danner), the Lyric Culture Party where Fergie performed a full set, X-Box's Halo 3 Sneak Preview Party (click for video interviews), the Pirates of the Carribean premiere, Knocked Up premiere, and that leads us to today... One of my first days off. Coming soon? The MTV Movie Awards, BET Awards, and who knows what else? I'm looking forward to D) all of the above.

 

4/27/07 :: All Sorts of Parties...

Sorry it's been a few. I've been party and premiere hopping for the last several weeks. My favorite event? One that benefited a beautiful cause. The lovely Jane Kaczmarek opened her Mediterranean style home for the Village by Village Garden Party, which raised funds for the Global AIDS Interfaith Alliance. (Be sure to click on both links for the story and info on the cause.) I've also recently reported from the Diabless Boutique Opening, Young Hollywood Awards, Fracture Premiere, Disturbia Premiere, Kickin' It Old Skool premiere party, and more... Too many to continually keep you updated, but I'll do my best. More soon...

 

4/6/07 :: Entourage Premiere Party...

The Entourage Premiere was held last night and I was psyched to screen the first two episodes (which are hysterical!) with the cast. Especially since I don't have HBO anymore. I've gotta get an invite to one of their homes so I can keep up with the new season... Only six more to go! I also attended the after-party. Click here to check out my Entourage coverage for InStyle! Everyone from Hilary Duff to Mark Wahlberg were in attendance....

 

4/2/07 :: Kids Choice Awards & More Fashion...

I've been doing a ton of on-camera reporting for WireImage Video & AMP'D Mobile. Check out their sites for clips from the Sons of Hollywood premiere, Blades of Glory premiere (click for video), Meet the Robinsons premiere (video), NAACP Image Awards Pre-Party (video), Israel Film Festival's Opening Night (video), A Night at Sardi's (video), Mother Ghost premiere (video), and Redline premiere (video)... Otherwise, check out the following links for my recent InStyle coverage from: The Kids Choice Awards, The Ungaro Fashion Show, Imitation of Christ @ LA Fashion Week, and Jenni Kayne Dessert Party, which will also be featured in InStyle Magazine's June 2007 issue. Yay!

 

3/17/07 :: Entourage & Fashion Week...

Fashion week is around the corner... "Again?" teased Adrian Grenier. At the Entourage for AG Premium Denim launch, I'd attempted to ask him about his fashion week experiences, but he maintained, "They don’t give me enough time to prepare Fashion Week answers because every other week is Fashion Week." I don't disagree... I'm just glad to be working. Here's a week in my life link by link... Eva Longoria's Bebe Sport Party, Entourage for AG Denim (click for video), and Mark Wahlberg's Shooter Premiere.

 

3/2/07 :: Wild Hog Interviews...

This week, I covered the Wild Hog premiere, but weeks ago I covered the film's junket. Take a look at my video interviews with John Travolta, Martin Lawrence, Tim Allen, William H Macy, Marisa Tomei, and Ray Liotta. (Try saying that five times fast. Quite an award winning cast, eh?) The day of the junket, Martin Lawrence told me I was funny... And I quote, "This girl's funny!" Made my day!

 

2/26/07 :: The Oscars & Independent Spirit Awards...

I'm tired... so tired, but I'm not complaining! Work is good. If you can call this work, right?! Saturday, I spent the day (and night!) at the Independent Spirit Awards where I chatted with everyone from Daniel Craig, Zach Braff, and Matt Dillon to Angelica Houston, Minnie Driver, and Felicity Huffman. Check out all of my coverage on InStyle.com!

Last night, I hit up the yin to the Oscar's yang -- Lil Kim's Billboard Viewing & After Party, which benefited Children Uniting Nations. The crowd featured an interesting mix, which included Jane Seymour, DMX, and JC Chasez. Definitely one of the more relaxed post Oscar parties.

Leading up to the big night, I covered Jamie Foxx's Giant Magazine Nomination Celebration in honor of Jennifer Hudson (click for video). All in attendance agreed, Hudson was already a winner whether she went home with the statue or not... But now the world can confirm... she is indeed an Oscar winner! An absolute doll, Hudson proved to be a great interview. She seemed so appreciative of everything happening to her... and so real. That's not to say she wasn't a pro posing for the photogs. She has it down pat... In between interviews, she kept fixing her cleavage... And she didn't hide it. It's hard to when you have that many members of the media hovering over you. If only, I could share the video footage with you. It's only available through WireImage Video.

From there, it was off to Macy Gray's Vanity Fair Party where she performed her new hit Finally Made Me Happy as well as some of her classics. Bobby Brown, Kate Walsh, and will.i.am were on hand to bask her performance. (Leonardo DiCaprio, Djimon Honsou, and Kevin Connelly arrived at Boulevard3 shortly after her performance, but they stayed a mere 30 minutes before dipping.)

 

2/12/07 :: The Grammy's..

From one award show to the next... this weekend, it's Grammy time! On the 8th, I hit up The Black Eyed Peas' 3rd Annual Peapod Foundation Benefit at the Avalon in Hollywood.com. Check out my Peas coverage on InStyle.com!

The next night, I headed to Justin Timberlake's Verizon Wireless Concert. When arrivals started at 10pm, the party was already to capacity! They wouldn't even let Benjamin McKenzie in. Paris Hilton managed to get the VIP treatment. She breezed right in by McKenzie, who finally left after waiting outside for forty-five minutes. Want more? Check out my InStyle coverage from the evening!

Saturday, I took a break from music to focus on film. I sat down with John Travolta, Martin Lawrence, Tim Allen, William H Macy, Marisa Tomei, and Ray Liotta in promotion of Wild Hogs. Those video interviews will be up shortly. Last night was finally a chance to unwind! I headed to a post Grammy party courtesy of the Warner Music Group where I partied it up with Scarlett Johansson, Petra Nemcova & James Blunt, and Al Gore!

 

1/30/07 :: Santa Barbara Film Festival...

I can't seem to get enough of Sienna Miller! Last Thursday, I headed to her Factory Girl premiere. Who knew the girl had acting chops?! She really shined in this entertaining, though tragic, biopic. My InStyle.com coverage already went live. Because I was doing double duty, I have another article, from the event, to soon follow. The next day, I attended the Sacha Baron Cohen panel discussion. Stay tuned for that article. Saturday evening took the cake! The festival honored Will Smith with their "Modern Master" Award. He attended with wife Jada and special guest Tom Cruise! Check out my coverage on InStyle.com. Take a look!

 

1/18/07 :: The Golden Globes...

After a plethora of pre-parties (including the Silver Spoon Buffet where I "baby talked" with Tori Spelling and hubby Dean McDermott), the big day finally arrived: The Golden Globes. I was on the scene (ALL DAY!) waiting for The Weinstein Company after-party to begin. It was a freezing night, but that didn't stop the party from heating up. Attendees included Sienna Miller, Jamie Foxx, and Mischa Barton. I conducted video interviews and contributed to an article on the evening. Check it all out!

 

1/10/07 :: People's Choice Awards...

It proved to be a late night at (and after!) the People's Choice Awards. Who had time for the after-party? I was too busy filing my report for InStyle.com. If you want details on the evening, check out my coverage online: http://www.instyle.com/instyle/parties/party/0,27415,1575829,00.html

 

 

1/8/07 :: New Year, New Video...

After celebrating the start of a new year in Hawaii, it's back to work! This tan better last for (at least!) a couple weeks. I returned to find a new video up from The Dead Girl premiere, featuring Kerry Washington, Marcia Gay Harden, Giovanni Ribisi, and Brittany Murphy. I must say -- Murphy is one of my favorite people! At the conclusion of our interview, I thanked and congratulated her. She immediately exclaimed, "No! Thank YOU and happy New Year and happy holidays... to you and your family." She has *the best* energy. I hope to cross paths with her again. What a delight. In the meantime, check out my video coverage of The Dead Girl premiere and stay tuned for more entertainment coverage in this new year....
