Behind the Scenes at LA Confidential’s Celeb-Packed Pre-Emmys Party!
We rubbed elbows with Emmy Rossum, Elijah Wood, and Jesse Tyler Ferguson at LA Confidential’s pre-Emmy shindig!
Up on the roof of chi-chi hotel The London West Hollywood, the stars have come out to play! No, not the actual stars in the night sky– um hello, I live in Los Angeles! No, I mean celebs like the actress Emmy Rossum, who is even prettier in real life and taller than I expected. I shake to the point where my teeth chatter when she walks by, but this is probably due to the fact that we’re up on the roof of a hotel with 200 suites and I’m wearing a sleeveless dress and silk blazer.
This is nothing a complimentary cherry herring mojito won’t fix. Bottoms up!
LA Confidential Magazine was celebrating their Annual Pre-Emmy Party hosted by William H. Macy and Emmy Rossum, the stars of Showtime’s original series Shameless. Both Macy and Rossum serve as the cover models for the September issue of the magazine and were also present for the silent auction held later that evening. All proceeds from the auction went towards The Art of Elysium, a non-profit organization that encourages those in the arts to devote a bit of their star power to enriching the lives of the children battling serious medical conditions. A worthy cause, indeed!
Like my visit to the post-VMAs event, this one is full-on Hollywood– lots of blonds ‘n Botox– and I have one of my roommates accompanying me once more. Unlike my last visit, though, I am wearing a dress that is perfectly my size, the free drinks vary from station to station, and actor Elijah Wood is the DJ. Also three people within earshot have all yelled out “I need to go pee!” really loudly and they–
Wait, wait, what? Back it up to Elijah and possibly more on the drink situation!
It took me a hot second, but then I remembered that Elijah is the star of the FX original series Wilfred. In addition, he’s created a compilation album of which all proceeds go toward The Art of Elysium. Before you ask if he sings on the album, sorry everyone, that’s a no; however, artists like Sonic Youth and The Kills are both featured on the album, which is available exclusively on iTunes.
