The America’s Next Top Model winner showed up at the Grand Opening of Jay-Z’s 40/40 Club At The Palazzo Hotel in Vegas last night.
She looks like she’s going to prom!
This is NOT a fat girl. This is a baaaaaaad dress.
Also there: Beyonce Knowles, wearing those shoes that are all the rage lately. They make me want to die. It looks like she broke her foot, and this is the fancy high-tech cast they made for her.
What a weekend!
Saturday morning, the ever-fabulous MK from popbytes organized another one of his killer blogger brunches at Kate Mantilini (aka Kate Mantil-yummy!) in Bev Hills. It’s always so much fun to hang out with the rest of the gossip blogger community. If you’re a gossip blogger in the LA area, and you’re not on his invite list, drop me a line and I’ll make sure you’re included next time.
Then it was off to San Diego, to hang out with my little sister (the one who researches phytoplankton at Scripps and wishes I would change my last name so that she didn’t have to be associated with what I do for a living … we are very different people) and my friend Courtney (whose roommates told me they love The Beet, so a shout out to Pam, Livia and Lexie!). We all went out to a club in Pacific Beach with some of Courtney’s friends, and the night was a stunning success, as I ended up making out with a super hot Marine who had a tattoo of “Venni Vitti Vicci” misspelled across his chest. I was like, “Um, is that the correct Latin spelling for that?” and he was like “Yes.” And then his buddies bust up laughing, and they’re like, “No, dude, it’s not. We never had the heart to tell you. But since she brought it up…”
The correct Latin spelling for Julius Caesar’s famous “I came, I saw, I conquered” is “Veni, vidi, vici.” So he was wrong on like 8 different levels. Honestly, people, run this stuff by a professional before you get it tattooed on your body. But whatever. I didn’t exactly need him to translate The Aeneid for me, if you know what I mean. ;)
On Sunday we recovered, then went to dinner with some cousins, and then traffic on the 5 sucked coming north, so I just now got home. So I apologize that posting’s been nonexistent this weekend. I needed a couple days off.
Anyway, here are some pics of ANTM winner Caridee English hosting at SET in Miami on Friday night. She brought along her boyfriend, who is considerably less attractive than she is. But the real question is … which one of them is drunker? It’s anyone’s guess …
Oh wait, except she totally doesn’t.
Every picture I’ve come across of her since she won ANTM just sucks.
Seriously, this chick makes Vincent Pastore look like a supermodel.
Also: Rachel Hunter is a tragedy.
I’m not even going to tell you guys what event this is, because it’s the stupidest thing ever, and I can’t even believe they got a celebrity of Caridee’s status to attend. This is definitely the kind of event where you have your fingers crossed for some contestant from Average Joe to show up. I’ll give you a hint: the words “Meow Mix” and “Acatemy” are used.
WHERE IS JASLENE?
I haven’t seen pics of her in ages, so I hope that means she’s in some manner of eating disorder rehab facility. Ooh, maybe she’s at Cirque Lodge bonding with Lindsay Lohan. That’s where Mary-Kate Olsen went to have her
cocaine addiction eating disorder treated. Jaslene Gonzalez makes Mary-Kate Olsen look like a compulsive over-eater.
