My Notes

Star struck

I must say that this was one of the most star-studded weekends of my entire life. I’ve been to some parties before and even worked at the well-known Roxbury back in the day-—which was all movie stars—but there is something about Oscar weekend that still gets me excited!

My weekend began with a private party at the Gagosian Gallery for an artist named Richard Prince “Cowboys.” The next night I went to the annual party for QVC, held at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills. I don’t have a line of products with QVC yet but I would like to one day! The event itself was gorgeous. The tent was clear (as opposed to the typical white tent) so you could see the stars above. We saw some fun names on the QVC red carpet like Heidi Klum, Lisa Rinna and Nicole Richie. Great food, interesting people, and especially fun for me, because I got to hang out with my good friend Daniel Musto. Daniel is my stylist on Ready For Love and I had missed him terribly since we wrapped filming Season One in late summer.

The next morning, Cheryl Tiegs, a lovely friend of mine, invited me to the home of Barry Diller and Diane von Furstenberg for a picnic. The two hold a star-studded lunch each year hosted by Graydon Carter, the editor of Vanity Fair. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/02/27/barry-dillers-oscar-weeke_n_828830.html

Everyone knows and loves Ms. Tiegs, so I just tagged along with her as we approached the “receiving line.” She was so gracious and introduced me to everyone. Before I knew it, I was sandwiched between Penny Marshall and the great (and very tan) George Hamilton. As I turned to get some shoulder room, I bumped right into Harvey Weinstein, who was talking to Steve Martin of course, and well…you get the picture.

This home setting was the quintessential Old Hollywood that one usually only reads about. A gigantic oak tree was the centerpiece of the yard and dozens of picnic tables with red and orange tulips awaited the guests under its magnificent shade. Cheryl and I socialized for a while longer and then made our way to the food line. We grabbed some really good grub and had a very nice lunch together.

The day was PERFECT in every way, but it wouldn’t have been complete without the legendary Warren Beatty, who out of nowhere appeared across the grass from me just before we left. I just watched him as he shook hands and said hi to all his good friends. You could tell that this party in particular was one that the stars had all become accustomed to. I must say Mr. Beatty capped this day off for me. It truly was Hollywood Royalty at its best.img-diary2

My weekend ended with a big bang. I attended the Fox Searchlight Oscar party and was able to meet my favorite director, Ang Lee, who won Best Director for Life Of Pi. If you haven’t seen this incredible movie yet, run to the theaters now! The movie also won for Visual Effects, and if you get a chance to see it in 3D you will understand why. It’s actually the only 3D movie that really works in my opinion! The music was the very best of any party that I have been to. Two cute women were the DJ’s and I wish I had asked who they were. It was SO good you never wanted to stop dancing.

I brought two friends with me, Todd Gallagher and Ann Turkel. Todd is making a film called Popular, of which I am a segment producer – it will be great, so keep an eye out for it! We had a fun night that lasted into the wee hours. The next morning I packed my bags and headed south once again—this time for TED.
