Monday: A friend hit NYC Monday night staple Butter and saw swinging single John Mayer ‘flirting with a few girls’ inside. Outside he was photographed walking hand-in-hand with a male friend.
Tuesday: After work I went by artist Russell Young’s art opening at Milk Studios. Although ‘confirmed’ guests such as Joaquin Phoenix didn’t make it to the opening Kelly Ripa’s hubby Mark Consuelos stopped by solo – earlier that day Kelly had to leave her live show in the Bahamas because she wasn’t feeling well. Despite speculation, pregnancy rumors have been knocked down. I tried to catch up with Mark to inquire about how Kelly was feeling but after he made a few quick laps around the space I lost track of him. I ran into him again out front trying to flag down a yellow cab. After watching his unsuccessful attempts my friend and I graciously let him take the cab that stopped for us and waited 20 seconds for another one.
Wednesday: I flew into LA Wednesday night and planned to drop my bags and run over to the opening of a new Burton store where they were expecting an abundance of celebrities. Unfortunately I didn’t make it in time, and promised stars like Jessica Simpson and Matthew McConaughey didn’t make it at all, but Amanda Bynes and Amy Smart made it to the surf goods store to see surfing hottie Kelly Slater- who I hear may now be dating recently single Kirsten Dunst!
Thursday: In New York there was a doc in the house (Grey’s Anatomy’s Justin Chambers) as Fergie performed at the 40th Anniversary of Wilhelmina Models and Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo hung out at Marquee where Nick was to support his good friend Jimmie Johnson at the Nascar/Nextel Cup Series party the club hosts annually. In LA the highlight of the night was the opening of new club Goa. I’d planned to go, actually, I did go, but I arrived a bit more than casually late and by that time a row of cops were outside clamoring on about the club being at capacity and pushing people from the sidewalk. Paris HIlton walked out and got in a car with Avril Lavigne, huh? Inside still partying were stars such as Bruce Willis AND Rumer Willis, Casey Affleck, Ryan Gosling, Adrien Grenier and Lauren Conrad.
Friday: So much to do, so little time. I’m normally not a huge fan of venturing out on the weekends, but I’m in LA. To see what I decided on tune back to Simplyjen tomorrow ;) xo
