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.

You post here as if MC owes you anything. If you don't want to buy the album because it's delayed, then don't. No one's forcing you to. But coming here and saying she treats you like trash and all sorts of name-calling, just because she don't deliver to your demands as a fan, then you really need to re-evaluate your life. I'm one who is critical of... read more

I get your point, Edward. She's Mariah Carey, she has someone to attend to every single aspect of her life, she hires and fires nannies in the blink of en eye, she's worth 500 million bucks and she doesn't even need to really sing live any more to continue rolling in those dollars. Could this be why she has lost interest in it all? She usually slim... read more

Thank you Randy, you made good points. I feel similar to you in the sense that I've loved Mariah since I was a teen. I am 35 years now. I follow her career but not as when I was 11. I used to have all the time in the world. I have to think about my reality (rent, bills, student loans, family). Mariah has her family and kids to care. She is 44, not ... read more
