“What is Your Self-Worth?” Book Party Part Two: Sightings

bailing.jpg
Pictured is your humble FBLA editors, Pandora Young and Tina Dupuy, with Bai Ling (also known as that chick from The Crow). Former nanny, Fran Drescher was in the crowd. Her assistant was handing out CD’s titled Cancer Schmancer. We also saw Jackie Collins scurry by.

The most shocking sighting all night was Gray Davis – former governor of California – recalled by the Terminator – Gray Davis. We actually blurted out loud, “Woah?!” When we saw him. His wife is somehow connected to Cheryl Saban, the author of the evening. Gray Davis, what a tragic political figure – he’s like Richard Nixon after he was VP for two terms, after he lost a presidential AND a gubernatorial bid – when there was all the bitter and list-making with none of the power to be the Nixonian crook we’ve all grown to love. Poor, Davis. We’ve had some bad nights and even been booed off stage – but not on that big of scale. Eep.

Bai Ling ‘s Battery-Powered Bust

102.ling.mughsot.021408.jpg

In a gift to bloggers everywhere, actress Bai-Ling (best known as bat-shit crazy Bai-Ling) was arrested yesterday at LAX for shop lifting AAA batteries and some magazines.

Bai Ling was placed under citizen’s arrest by a shop employee and was “cooperative but crying” when taken away by airport police. She’ll appear in court on May 5th.

Her blog–and she does have one–indicates she’s in Albuquerque, working. She’s cast as a prostitute in Love Ranch, produced and directed by Taylor Hackford.

She tells E! that she’d just broken up with a new beau, thus the need for batteries. (We made that up.)

FBLA Goes to the Party: Captivity Premiere Party: Not All That Freaky

Image046.jpg

After Dark’s producer Courtney Solomon promised that the premiere party for his horror flick, Captivity, wouldn’t be the same old blah evening of red carpet, screening, sponsored cocktail and home by 11. Biggest difference? No screening and open bar.

Despite the presence of the Suicide Girls (who were certainly the most polite dommettes we’ve ever met–one lanky young thing in gaffer tape pasties and bondage boots squeaked “pardon me, please” as she edged through the crowd) the only risky act was breathing all the second hand smoke. Or talking to Luke Ford.

Joel Stein, Claire Hoffman and Dana Goodyear were pointed out to us, but it was too much trouble to fight through the crowd and shout at them. Let’s guess who gets a piece out of this first.

We observed Paul Cullum interviewing producer Solomon. Solomon sounds like Nathan Lane when he speaks, which is so unexpected in a torture/horror mogul. He explained that showing the film at the premiere party wouldn’t help it at the box office. The film was banned from the Regal chain, but the MPAA wouldn’t allow use of the word BANNED on the ads. You’d think they don’t want people to see the movie–they didn’t watch it, so why should anyone else?

Ross Johnson worked that space like a cowboy at roundup–Move ‘em on, head ‘em out–Rawhide! Bas Rutten obliged. Miss HorrorFest06, Black Betty, (Jessica Chisum) was a welcome addition to the red carpet, as were Ryan Starr and Rachel Leigh Cook.

We must confess that we were outside, chatting up John Lippman, while the big freak show was happening inside. If you’ve seen one guy hanging from meathooks, you’ve seen ‘em all.

Later, the on-site piercer freaked people out by announcing he was a Republican who’d voted for Nixon. Some things are just too disgusting, ya know?

FBLA Goes to the Party: John Stossel and Stoli Hotel

Never let it be said that FBLA is a party pooper. First, we cheered for ABC’s John Stossel at the LA Press Club’s cocktail reception poolside at Blue Velvet. Usual gang was in attendence–Matt Welch (LAT), Mickey Kaus (Slate), Jill Stewart (LA Weekly), Amy Alkon, Luke Ford, Ed Rampell (Hustler), and Stossel signed his new book, Myths, Lies and Downright Stupidity.

Then, we dashed to The Stoli Hotel, which of course, isn’t a hotel, but rather an “entertainment space”, if seeing Paris Hilton, Bai Ling, James Blunt and Debbie Matenopolous is your idea of entertainment. We asked Debbie who’d she like to see replace Rosie, and boy! did she ignore that question. We have a way with semi-celebrities.

Somehow, FBLA had gotten this space confused with the Ice Hotel, and we were expecting to see things frozen and blue. We asked some vodka rep whatever happened to the pepper-flavored Stoli, but she had no idea. Andy Dick and a miniature date strolled by, but we didn’t ask them. Robin Antin posed with Paris Hilton, as well with those who would be Dolls. Paris won the pose. One of the Dolls-to-be told us she worked hard, but played hard too. At least we know she’s not scripted.

Bai Ling appeared fully dressed, to the dismay of the Fuggers, no doubt. Baron Clement von Franckenstein confided that he’s a wee bit tired of explaining the family name, but he’s a good sport.
