Behind The Scenes At The Golden Globes
Stars like LL Cool J, Perry Reeves, the RHOBH and Ross Matthews stopped by the HBO Luxury Lounge featuring the L’Oreal Paris Beauty Suite, picked up goodies, got pampered and dished!
Ever wonder what happens at the hospitality suites before award shows? For the ninth year in a row, HBO and Media Placement invited celebrities to experience the HBO Luxury Lounge featuring the L’Oreal Paris Beauty Suite. There, people could get pampered- nails done, hair prepped and even the guys could get some grooming done and pick up L’Oreal products. Stars could sip on Chambord liquor; get a year membership to The Sports Club/LA, Uppababy strollers, tees and jewelry from Confiance by Maryam, Gendarme Fragrance, Vivitar cameras and digital cameras, cashmere scarves, sweaters and gloves from Magaschoni, recordable storybooks from Hallmark and more. 90210’s Jessica Lowndes picked up some goodies from Vivitar.
A source at the event let us know who dropped by, what they picked up and all the dish! He or was it a she (??) said, “Entourage’s Perry Reeves must have changed her stance on leather. At last year’s HBO Luxury Lounge, Brahmin offered her a handbag and she commented, “I don’t wear leather.” This year, they stayed away but she came to them asking for a leather bag, “I love that one,” she said to a surprised staff and walked off without shame.
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Taylor Armstrong isn’t shy about what some say is her worst feature, a long face shape. At the lounge, Taylor was trying on sunglasses at the Marchon eyewear table, on what she called her “horse shaped face” and admitted that even her friends joke with her,“Why the long face?”
Taylor is not breaking up with her husband anytime soon. At the lounge, Armstrong was overheard talking about him at almost every table, joking that she “would be making her next sex tape” with the new Vivitar camcorder she was gifted.
Jenny Craig spokesperson Sara Rue admitted that it’s not just the diet that helped her lose weight but watching reality shows. At the L’Oreal Suite in the HBO Luxury Lounge, Rue was overheard talking about how she watches almost every reality show out there while she runs on a treadmill in her garage.
Sarah, famous for her red hair, also confided that she may not be that color for long. She revealed that she planned to change the color sometime soon.
LL Cool J stopped by the HBO Luxury Lounge to mingle with the ladies in the L’Oreal Paris Beauty Suite and signed a limited edition Judith Leiber compact designed for L’Oreal Paris. The compact will be auctioned off by The Women of Worth Foundation– all proceeds go to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund. He doesn’t plan on having any more kids. The actor/rapper was seen avoiding the UPPAbaby table openly stating, “No more babies for me!”
Dexter’s C.S. Lee grabbed an Uppababy stroller, admitting that he and his wife are trying to have a baby!
Kate Flannery knows what she likes! The star of popular sitcom, The Office, remembered Chambord Liqueur from previous HBO Luxury Lounges and rejoiced, “Oh thank god! I went through my whole bottle of Chambord Flavored Vodka from the last lounge already!”
Kate also mentioned that at the Chicago James property she had so much fun there with her boyfriend causing a raucous – she was given two free nights at the James New York and whispered, “I hope they’re ready for us.” She asked the James Hotel representative how big the beds were in teh New York hotel,because her boyfriend is so tall that she has to make sure he fits! She says she always calls before they travel to make sure that he’ll fit.
