Sports and showbiz mix during the Pepsi Stuff Launch Party held at NYC’s Pacha.
While New York Giants players Michael Strahan, Amani Toomer and Brandon Jacobs laugh off celeb romance questions, Ivanka Trump takes off her coat.
“So cold!” she says. “I just came from the office. I’m that girl who is fixing myself up a bit in the bathroom.” Her must-haves? “Purpose facial soap, and in the office, Pepsi.”
Here is Brody Jenner, who tells reporters he thinks Nicole Richie will be a great mother, and now we’ve got Cassie, who is stunning in a cut-to-the-belly-button top and oversized shiny black boots.
How does she keep her fab figure? “I try to eat healthy and take care of myself,” she tells me. “I dance and rehearse and rehearse and rehearse with my choreographer.”
John Legend and I catch up for the first time since I saw him perform at the St. Lucia Jazz Festival in May. “That was beautiful,” he tells me. “Great beach, great water. It was fun.”
Next up is Gossip Girl’s Dreama Walker, who helps a pal fix her hair. “Will you get my friend in here, please?” she pleads with a photographer. “Her name is Jo.”
How is she spending her time off during the writers’ strike?
“I’m really bored,” Dreama says. “I’ve done a lot of shopping. Just relaxing. My friend and I were thinking about taking a trip to Europe. There’s really nothing to do, but thank God there’s auditions for plays and movies. I have an off-Broadway play coming up, which is good. That will keep me occupied for a little while.”
Meanwhile, Prince Charming is whisked upstairs to the VIP section, where he’s waited on hand-and-foot. He tells me Kobe sliders, Hawaiian chicken, scallops and Glenlivet Scotch are being served, and Ivanka shyly says ‘hi, how are you?’ to him.
Ivanka is the greatest. Every single member of the Trump family is super-sweet including Donald, Ivanka, Donald Jr., Vanessa, Melania and Ivana. They’ve got the perfect blend of brains and beauty – and serious spunk! The Donald reminds me of my uncle, I see him so often — seriously.
