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 know there were reports that Packer is opening a casino in Vegas soon. I just hope he didn't decide to be "seen" with Mariah in between her Vegas shows to get his name out there now... read more (Tuesday 7 July 2015; 16:51)

When those pics of Mariah and Packer kissing popped up I said they looked staged. I can't say whether this is a publicity stunt or not. I'm hoping not because Mariah has never been one to use her relationships for publicity. She's never needed to. As for Nick cheating, there has only been one relationship before Mariah that I know of where he was a... read more (Tuesday 7 July 2015; 13:28)
Ceriouse about something (55,107)
by Warrior Butterfly from USA
Mariah appeared on Oprah the day before her album hit the stores in 2008 when she said that "I just did a sequence with L.A. Reed" when asked what cut number Bye Bye Bye [sic] was. You can see what I'm talking about here less than minute into the video. My question is this th... read more (Tuesday 7 July 2015; 7:04)
