Last night, Operation Smile celebrated its 5th annual Smile Event at Skylight Studio in
Manhattan's West Village. White drapery cascaded down from the ceiling. Heels were high.
Table settings were ravaged after an exquisite meal courtesy of Phillipe Chow. Gowns were,
you know, flowy and big-budget. Huge sums of money were raised at the event's auction, the
proceeds of which benefit children around the world born with facial deformities.|
It's hard to segue from here without sounding like a vapid asshole, but here goes: the
crowd at the dinner after-party was comprised of beautiful people, among them, Nick Cannon
(who manned the DJ booth), actress Jamie-Lynn Sigler, Donald Trump Jr. ("The Donald" was
also in attendance), model Alexandra Richards, New York socialites Olivia Palermo, Tinsley
Mortimer, Annabel Vartanian, and Kristian Laliberte, and supermodel Maggie Rizer. Oh, and
something called a Mariah Carey showed up.
The gays went crazy. As we waited for her performance - which we either missed or didn't
happen - we shielded ourselves from the solar power of her butterfly bauble, while drowning
out the nearby "OMFG, it's her!" squeals with champagne.
We left about the time Cannon started spinning vintage Mariah - "Heartbreaker" wethinks -
but not before scanning the room, and taking in the beauty of the space and its occupants.
Philanthropy never looked this good.

I sort of liked Nick when they got together because he seemed to make Mariah so happy. Nick talking about his other sex partners was disgusting, especially Kim Kardashian. Then when he made the comment on the red carpet about "marrying well", it made me think he's in it for the money. He made that comment while he and Mariah were separated. That, t... read more

That line says it all. From the beginning of this union like many fans, I felt Mariah was making the biggest mistake of her life marrying Nick Cannon (of all people), but the feeling subsided when I saw how much Nick "loved" her. Hm. Now I'm back to wondering was he in it all for the upgraded lifestyle, career opportunities, and new level of fame,... read more
