Back To Our Regulary Scheduled Programming

March 27, 2006 by  

Although a bit tired from taking the red eye home, I’m happy to report that I made it back to the East Coast safe and sound.  California was fantastic, and I had the best time, but man…I am exhausted.  My TiVo is equally as tired from recording all my shows while I was away.  I’m going to do my best to catch up on everything today, so we can get back to talking about the best of the best on TV. But until then…

Isaac MizrahiOh, I crossed paths with a few more celebs since last time I posted, so I thought I would pass along the scoop. Saturday afternoon my girls and I headed over to do a little shopping at Fred Segal’s, we drove by one of the member’s of Kiss…but don’t ask me which one.  While at lunch, Isaac Mizrahi and a friend were seated at the table next to ours.  Always looking for a good story, I was hoping Isaac would molest me like he did Scarlett Johannson, but no such luck. The best part was when Isaac hid his face behind his hand because he thought my friend was trying to take a picture of him.  She totally wasn’t…she was just scrolling through the pics we had taken the day before.  Isaac’s such a diva.

Saturday night we hit up one of LA’s hottest restaurants, Koi, and although we had a fabulous meal, we didn’t run into any celebs.  After Koi we made a quick stop at The Roosevelt Hotel where we saw the one and only Drew Barrymore getting into an old, beat-up station wagon-truck.  Drew was a lot thinner that I imagined her to be.  But cute as a button.

Drunk Tara ReidOur next stop of the night was Privilege.  From what people tell me, Privilege is the place to party in LA.  The exclusive nightclub is essentially in a parking lot on Sunset in West Hollywood, which I thought was odd.  No cameras are allowed inside the club, but the nice people of Privilege let you pay them $5 to hold your camera until you leave.  So sweet.  The club was dark, and very smokey.  I didn’t realize that in LA you can still smoke inside – and, as it turns out, smoke an obscene amount of weed, which everyone around me seem to be doing.  Gotta love LA.  You also gotta love that I got to witness first hand the absolute trainwreck that is Tara Reid.  We were dancing when we saw Tara stumble her way off the dancefloor towards the bathrooms.  Her head was down, and she could barely walk unassisted – classic!! Our limo driver (yes, we travel LA in style) told us that she had driven Tara Reid around a bunch of times, and said the girl is ALWAYS a drunk mess. She’s a disaster.

Brandon Davis & Mischa BartonWhile I was in the ladies room (not with Tara unfortunately), my girlfriends were chatting it up with Pauley Shore.  Now that’s a moment I wish I had captured on camera..ha ha.  The only other noteworthy person we saw at Privilege was Brandon Davis – who is really only “famous” for being rich and dating Mischa Barton.  If only Coop were there that night.

Cast of MTV's The HillsSince Sunday was our last day in LA, I didn’t really expect to see any other famous folks. So you can imagine how happy I was when the hotel elevator doors opened and Jason from Laguna Beach walked in.  He and his stylist? publicist? assistant? were doing a last minute outfit check.  Collar up or collar down…big decisions for J. Wahl.  As it turns out, Jason was at The W to do a promotional photoshoot for The Hills – the Laguna Beach spinoff featuring LC.  Oh LC (Lauren Conrad) was there too.  She and her other friends (including Heidi and Jordan) were sporting white robes in between takes.  And for those of you wondering, LC and Jason are still very much together.  They were kissing and canoodling on the front steps of the hotel. I just didn’t feel comfortable taking any pics, so this pic from The Laguna Beach Hook-up will have to suffice

Raquel WelchMy last celebrity sighting came during my Sunday afternoon lunch at The Ivy.  Two tables away was actress and former pinup girl, Raquel Welch.  She looks great!

Well that’s that.  I’m home from California, and ready to catch up on all my missed shows.  I had just enough “celeb” sightings to keep my happy.  And even though I didn’t run into John Krasinski, it was a damn good time.

I’ll be posting later on tonight.  I just finished this week’s Veronica Mars (which was fabulous) so we’ll have to talk about that.  Also, I have some theories on why UPN is moving Veronica Mars and I’d love to hear what you think about it.  Oh yeah, still planning on talking with show creator Rob Thomas, and star Jason Dohring tomorrow afternoon, so if you have any questions…now’s the time to pass them along.

Now on to The West Wing, Scrubs, Desperate Housewives, The Office, How I Met Your Mother, Lost, Blow Out, Survivor, and all the other shows I missed while I was away.  I’ve got a lot of TV to catch up on.

    Is anyone really surprised that Tara was drunk? lol And now, since you witnessed it, I can confirm that the only reason she’s invited to parties is because someone needs to play the role of Drunk Girl. Yet, she keeps on saying that she’s tired of the “party” scene. Ah-huh.

    I’m so envious of you lol LA is just pouring with celebs!
